You want to grow your podcast audience and get your listeners to engage with you, right?
One of my favorite ways is to include a listener Q&A segment in your show. You could also make it a listener comment segment or a segment where you read reviews.
Sounds simple, but this tactic can be powerful. I'll explain:
- Ask people to tag or @ you on social when they ask questions (friends and followers will be able to find you and learn more)
- People like to hear their names spoken online - so once you mention someone, they will be much more likely to share that episode
- Their friends likely have similar interests and will want to check out the show
- Other listers will want to have their question said aloud (and get an answer of course)
