89- Nearly 1.5 Million downloads — so what and now what

podcast_reporter_albumartwork1400

In this episode of The Podcast Reporter show, we deliver to you some thoughts on what having nearly a million and a half downloads may mean to the podcaster.

Nearly 1.5 Million downloads.

Well, so what?

And, now what?

We explore these questions in this audio episode.

The inspiration of this topic and its discussion came from a podcast episode from Paul Colligan’s The Podcast Report, episode 85.

In this audio Podcast, Paul gives seven reasons why downloads may be the worst metric for a podcaster.

In addition to what Paul Colligan had mentioned in the above mentioned podcast episode, we add a few other items and questions that a podcaster might ask about that “metric is the sky” — downloads. This is particularly important, since this number may be hacked, or scammed, or tricked, or faked.

Yes, having nearly 1.5 Million downloads may be a great achievement, but what does it really mean to the serious podcaster?

LessonsLearnedimage

In this episode, we deliver the final summary of my top lessons learned after over 10 years of podcasting. However, in this episode, we focus on the lessons learned that impacted my podcasts and business POSITIVELY.

As you will hear in this audio episode, the 8 key lessons learned deal with these topics:

  1. Relationships are what make success possible;
  2. There ARE people who find your content of value;
  3. There is always a gem or two in every tutorial, webinar, course or learning experience (that is, if done correctly);
  4. It is all about your AUDIENCE — it is NOT about you, your services, your products or offerings;
  5. Financial success is difficult, but it can be achieved — but at a price;
  6. Success that can prove to be of most value to you may not be money;
  7. Enjoyment of podcasting can be its own profit and reward;
  8. SERVICES may be your Holy Grail.
