    08/03/2023 Duración: 44min

    What would growing your podcast mean for your sales? For your business as a whole? You’d have a valuable asset that attracts more leads, more clients, and more sales. You’d have an avenue to help you achieve sustainable business success. But having support along the way increases your odds exponentially. Friend and longtime client Tara Newman grew her podcast by 40% last year and was really the start of my agency. When I launched Uncommonly More, she was the first client whose show I helped turn into a lead-generating, client-converting team member. And today, she’s my special guest! In this episode of The More Profitable Podcast, Tara and I talk about how she grew The Bold Money Revolution podcast and how that growth has impacted her business. You’ll learn what does and doesn’t matter when it comes to launching, what should guide your decision-making as you grow your podcast, how to be strategic with your content, and so much more! 1:31 - Why Tara turned to podcasting and how she launched her podcast 9:00 -

  • Should You Be Adding Video to Your Podcast?

    01/03/2023 Duración: 30min

    Should you really add video to your podcast marketing or to the podcast itself? Video marketing is the hot trend in podcasting circles these days. And you may feel like you’re missing out on something if you don’t do it or fear that your podcast won’t be as successful as it could be without it. After all, things in the online world can change so fast that what worked last year may not work this year. But what if you’re camera shy and hate the idea of doing video yourself? Or you just don’t have the time, money, or desire to go through that extra effort to produce your show? Good news: there are ways of adding video to your podcast and your marketing that can fit your personality, budget, and time. If you like the idea of incorporating video into your show somehow but the thought of recording the whole thing puts you off, then you’ll want to listen to this episode of The More Profitable Podcast. In it, you’ll learn about the three different “tiers” of using video in your show and ways you can incorporate it in

  • You Cannot Tactic Your Way Out of a Bad Podcast

    22/02/2023 Duración: 26min

    “Magic pill” marketing needs to die. Too many marketers online point to a tactic and tell podcasters that it’ll make their show better, more popular, more successful, etc. But looking for that miracle tactic to produce sales from your podcast is costing you in so many ways. It’s costing you time, money, confidence, progress, and mental capital. And if your show is shitty to begin with, then forget about it! No marketing method is going to change that. There are three tactics in particular that I see people raving about online and encouraging podcasters to try. As a fellow podcaster, I do these things myself but there’s a caveat: You have to have a good approach in mind before you implement a technique. Too many go into it completely blind and get absolutely nowhere. So in this episode of The More Profitable Podcast, you’ll learn about those tactics and why you cannot just tactic your way out of a shitty show. I’ll teach you the correct mindset and purpose behind each one so you can put your show in the best p

    It's Wednesday, and much later than this usually lands in your feed, so where exactly is your new episode? Well, it's coming... next week. I decided after doing a final review of this month's audit on The Podcast Newsroom that you really needed to hear THAT episode this week, so we changed the plans. I want to be super transparent, and that's why I'm sharing this... it's not just OK to change the plan, it's inevitable. Sometimes the plan NEEDS changing, like this week. I want you to hear my conversation with Diann during this podcast audit because it's an extension of last week's conversation where we discussed episode types. ​ ​In my conversation with Diann, we get into a really good example of the difference between strategy and tactic and how knowing the larger strategic goal of the episode is going to impact your tactics. We also talk through some things Diann did VERY well in this episode, it's important that we share what "good" looks like, it's how we all get better. You can listen to the whole ep

    You know how you can get into a TV show and watch episode after episode after episode (after episode...)? People do the same with podcasts. In fact, there are gurus who highly recommend making your show the same way: so addictive that it becomes bingeable to anyone who comes across it. I don’t agree with them.

    Marketing “gurus” love to give the same type of advice online.

In this episode, I reveal what my two favorite ways to find content ideas and how I use them to generate content that speaks to my ideal clients. 3:39 - My #1 favorite way to get content ideas 6:31 - Another way this benefits you as a long-time service provider 10:14 - My second favorite way to get content ideas 12:23 - The very specific kind of podcast Uncommonly More produces 14:55 - Examples of how I’ve applied this second technique to this podcast Mentioned In The Two Most Effective Ways to Generate Content Ideas The Podcast Newsroom EP 578: “The Power of an Audio Sales Page” Podcast Housekeeping Series: “How to Cr
