The Complete Podcast Launch Plan

The Complete Podcast Launch Plan

So you want to launch a podcast... Great! I know you're excited and you want to just dive in, but let's take a moment to talk about your launch strategy. What's a launch strategy? It's a methodology that could mean the difference between a massively successful launch and a dull thud.

The reason I'm so passionate about podcasting is because it has changed my life and business so dramatically, I simply can't sit by and not tell the world about how awesome podcasting actually is. Through our own podcast "The Inner Changemaker" and our online training platform "Podcast Your Brand," we've been able to build an online business that offers us incredible freedom: Freedom of time and freedom of travel. We've also had the opportunity to speak at some of the largest podcasting events around the world such as Podcast Movement in Chicago, Podcastfest in Florida and even PodCamp in my native hometown, Toronto.

In this article I'm going to be sharing four key metrics that will help you have the most successful podcast launch possible.

 

Before we begin, let me explain why I'm sharing this with you. The fact is, there's a ton of information out there on podcasting. Unfortunately, most of it is outdated. Even guides published in 2013, 2014 and 2015 are seriously out of date. The landscape of the podcasting world has changed dramatically even in the last couple of years.

Fact:

No matter which podcasting conference you attend, the most exciting session is always the one on monetization. The room is always standing room only. Why?

That's exactly what we'll be covering in this post:

Podcasting has made such a dramatic difference in my life and in my business. I've been fortunate to have built a business over the last couple of years that allows us to travel while still being able to work and podcast. We've gained freedom of time and freedom of money. I've also been able to share the stage with some of the best in the industry, whether it's speaking at Podcast Movement in Chicago or PodFest in Florida.

Is Your Work Unmistakable?

Is Your Work Unmistakable?

Recently I had the opportunity to chat with Srini Rao from Unmistakable Creative. Chief Creative Instigator, podcast host and author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Art of Being Unmistakable, Srini has conducted over 600 interviews with thought leaders and people from every walk of life, all of whom share a special trait: in some way or another, they are unmistakable. What follows are a collection of 6 ways to be unmistakable based on our conversation. But first, what does being unmistakable actually mean?

 

According to Srini, being unmistakable means doing things that are so distinctive, unique, and original, that they're immediately recognized as things that you did. It means that you do work so distinctive, you don't even need to put a signature on it - indeed, the work is itself a signature. It's a kind of creative fingerprint, based on your unique set of skills, experiences and personality quirks.

 

So how do you go about creating distinctive and unmistakable work? Srini has some tips for you:
