What road construction can teach us about podcast subscribers - 1KP0089

Today as I was riding to work, I had a road construction experience that made me think about getting getting people subscribed to our shows.

More subscribers. We all want more subscribers for our podcasts. There are all kinds of strategies out there for getting more subscribers.

But here’s the problem: most of them are focused on the benefits for the PODCASTER.

If we’re really serving our audiences, we’ll be focused on ways to serve them and some of the common strategies don’t serve them well and where I think we can find the sweet spot.

To illustrate how this can work, I’m going to share a little about my commute this morning.


I'll share my thoughts on:

  • The "just one link" strategy
  • The "just one link with redirects" (the smart link) strategy
  • The smorgasbord approach
  • The McDonald's Fries approach

What about you?

About the Podcast

1000 Podcasters
Helping 1000 Podcasters Launch, Sustain, and Improve Their Shows
Launching a podcast is a little tech and a HUGE mental game of overcoming fear, getting out of your own way, and (sometimes) a daily grind.

Join me as I share what I've picked up on my podcasting journey over the last 5 years, hosting over 250 episodes, growing as a host and editor, developing systems and processes, and beginning to share what I've learned.

The road is hard-fought and has allowed me to help other podcasters launch, improve their shows, up their editing games, and more. And I've been able to edit over 300 episodes myself.

Join me on my quest to help 1,000 podcasters launch, sustain, and improve their shows.
