What would it be like if you could get in front of hundreds, maybe even thousands of your ideal potential clients every week? That would be worth something to you, right?
That's exactly what went through my mind when I thought about starting a podcast. It was also this huge opportunity to talk about what I love and connect with my existing clients.
I've had a LOT of questions around podcasting. A number of them have been to do with how you can start your own podcast and whether it's something worth considering.
The short answer is, yes. It's definitely worth considering if you want to connect with your audience and if you have a message to share.
Andrew Allemann Talks About Starting a Podcast
I've having a blast with this podcast at the moment. I've learnt a heck of a lot, but rather than share my journey, I thought it would be best to put someone in front of you who is that much further than me.
Enter Andrew Allemann from Domain Name Wire.
Andrew has a popular podcast about the business of buying and selling domain names. He proves that you can take a topic you're interested in, even if it's ultra niche, and create a following from it.
In today's podcast we cover:
- Why you should consider starting a podcast
- Some of the pitfalls of podcasting and things to watch out for
- Dos and don'ts for creating your podcast
- Key things to get right and where to avoid wasting time and money
- and much more.
