Don’t ghost your podcast listeners – Halloween Special!

Boo! In honor of the Halloween season, I’m serving up advice from our spooky supernatural friends, the ghosts!

Ghosting: When a person cuts off all communication with their friends or the person they’re dating, with zero warning or notice before hand. You’ll mostly see them avoiding friend’s phone calls, social media, and avoiding them in public.

don't ghost your podcast listeners, podcasting advice, podcast envy episode 034

Imagine this…

You happily discover this new podcast and the first few episodes have you feeling hopeful. You can see the promise and potential for the future of this show. As the weeks go on, you feel more and more like you really know the host. You’re starting to trust them —  you even share the podcast with your friends, hoping they’ll like it too.

And then suddenly — you realize it’s been weeks since you’ve gotten a new episode in your queue. You check your app, make sure you’re still subscribed. You look on social — where are they? You go back and replay the last episode — did you miss something? You tweet them — crickets.

Time goes by.

Silence.

You feel lost, betrayed. What could have happened? You hope they’re okay… I mean it was going so well. The only way they could disappear like this is if they were dead in ditch somewhere, right?

Do NOT do this to your listeners…

CURRENT PODCASTERS! I’m looking for you IF…

  • you are wanting to connect with other podcasters in a constructive, supportive way
  • you are happily podcasting along but feel like there’s something you’re missing
  • you want to grow your show in meaningful ways to make more of an impact

I’m developing an exclusive community circle of podcasters featuring monthly master classes, office hours with me, special guests and more! Founding members will have the opportunity to shape the program custom for you.

So get on my VIP Circle list (no obligation to join) to be invited and have a chance to help me create a unique experience to support you in your podcasting mission.

Launching January 2019. Sign up by December 21, 2018.

PODCASTERS TO BE! I’m looking for you IF…

  • you are planning to launch your podcast in 2019
  • you want to shortcut your learning curve and get it out sooner than later
  • you value having your show sound and look professional from the beginning so you can grow from a solid foundation

Let’s launch your show together as part of an intimate group in the Podcast Envy Launch Pod — the hands on attention of my private 1×1 launch service for a fraction of the cost!

Article cont’d

I know, sometimes podcasting is frustrating. It’s a lot more work and takes more time than anyone ever lets on in the beginning. And there’s the whole downloads thing — Apple is not the promised land of instant subscribers and an immediate crowd of podcast fans. Your show may not be the overnight success you imagined it would be.

And as the weeks and months go on, you find yourself getting less and less excited to go into a closet with your microphone (or shell out for recording studio time if you are so lucky) to record.

Maybe it’s been ages since you got a review, a 5-star rating, an email from a listener or geez– at this rate even some hearts on your audiograms in Insta.

But trust me — your listeners are out there, and they need you.

So before you give up completely, here are a few things you can try…

1) Consider your WHY — Remember why you started podcasting in the first place. Assess what you are personally getting out of podcasting with or without large numbers?

2) If you’re feeling overwhelmed, how often are you releasing episodes? Could you scale back? Or could you make less work for yourself — maybe outsourcing something like editing or doing less detailed show notes.

3) If you’re getting bored, can you switch it up a bit, invite some guests if you don’t usually, do some solo shows if you usually have interviews, do a deep dive mini-series in a topic that feels current or interesting to you?

4) Remember, it just takes TIME to build — so much time. Especially if you didn’t start with a huge following. Plus, numbers are subjective. I don’t know what your numbers are but you MIGHT be surprised about how intimate the average listening audience is by comparison — most people who share their stats have freakishly high numbers that don’t represent the full picture of indie podcasters.

If you’re still over it…

Could you take a break and see if you miss it? And if you do, then come back in a month or 2 months? If you do this, be sure to announce it to your listeners! Be honest about your intentions and let them know how to stay connected with you in the meantime (like will you still be posting on Facebook or in your newsletter)?

And when you’re truly done…

Say a proper good-bye. It doesn’t have to be long, drawn out, and dramatic (unless that’s your style.) It doesn’t have to be apologetic or self-deprecating (unless THAT’S your style.) Just a simple, heartfelt, honest ending to give your loyal listeners some closure.

Let them know you appreciate them and the time they’ve spent listening to your show — maybe recommend some other shows you think they might like to check out (if that feels right to you) and as in the above tip, tell them how to stay connected to you (unless you’re going totally offline!)

Believe me, no one likes to be ghosted. To this day, I will never understand why it happens so so so much in the online dating world. But that’s an article perhaps for another time.

Treat your audience with the respect they deserve and it will leave a lasting impression that matters.

A Halloween gift for you!

This month, October 2018, over on my LinkedIn, I’m sharing podcasting tips, practices and fun all around a Halloween theme and I’m kicking it off with a Tarot Card spread for your Podcast Content Marketing Plan.

This is a nod to the nostalgic defining moment of my childhood when I won (or at least placed) in a costume contest at the public library for my gypsy fortune teller look. No tarot cards are NOT fortune telling but I didn’t know any better when I was 9!

So if YOU want to get the spread either to DIY with your own tarot or oracle deck OR you want me to do a 3-card reading for you and YOUR show, click the button below and drop your email there for me and you’ll get instructions and a super brief questionnaire in case you want me to pull cards for you.Get the Tarot Podcast Plan!

PE027: Howard Salter, The Average Guys & The Ace Report, on Impostor Syndrome and Podcasting for Veterans


Howard Salter is just an “average guy” making a podcast with his friends… or IS he? Seriously I love his newer podcast The Ace Report, a show that goes deep into the stories of veterans who have returned from active duty.

I use scientifically proven, evidence based techniques to make our brains work for us, versus us, for it.

PE025: Josh Lewis, Saving Elephants, on Impostor Syndrome and Conservatism for Millennials

One of the magical things about podcasting is that sometimes you get to have a great conversation with someone who may have different opinions than you AND simultaneously find out how much you have in common.

This interview with Josh Lewis of the Saving Elephants podcast almost didn’t happen because his show is about conservative politics (not my cup of tea), BUT I really loved our talk and his fresh perspective on impostor syndrome when it comes to having a message you feel is so important you want to get it right!

070: Do one thing that’s completely different, Monica Rivera, You Wanna Do What?! the Podcast

“But everyone keeps saying just find your passion — find that one thing and follow your bliss and I thought well… I have a bunch of passions, so which passion are we talking about? And that’s why I kept feeling really stuck in that decision of needing to pick one thing.” ~Monica Rivera

 

I’m obsessed with podcasts and I always want MORE so there’s this thing I do once a week in the She Podcasts Facebook Group on Wednesdays. I scroll through a VERY long thread of new podcast episodes by other women podcasters and pick a few I’ve never heard of to check out.

Most of the time, I decide they’re not for me but every once in a while, a show really stands out and I fall in love.

That’s what happened with Monica’s podcast: You Wanna Do What?!

When I first heard it, I thought, “I want to to be friends with this woman.”

Her show feels so motivating without feeling coachy or preachy or overwhelming. And I’m so happy to be getting to know her and introduce her to you!

2 stories that stand out in this interview:

1) How Monica got into podcasting

2) How she was inspired by her grandmother not to wait to try new things


Listen to Monica’s podcast You Wanna Do What?!
I love episode 045: Are You Really Living? 

“I am comparing myself to myself… what I think I should be doing versus what I am doing, which I think is the worst kind because you’re with yourself all the time. So you’re constantly almost at war if you let yourself be.” ~Monica Rivera

“And some days honestly, I just have to sit in that space and let me feel it and just kind of go through it of kind of beating myself up a little bit and then the next day hoping that it gets better, but I never try to force myself out of something that I’m feeling.” ~Monica Rivera

069: Flip the script, Robyn Conley Downs, Feel Good Effect, mindset, podcasting & what it really means to be healthy

“I had to be able to sit there in that uncomfortable place of this is not as good as I want it to be — and that’s okay.” ~Robyn Conley Downs

I discovered Robyn when she needed a podcast editor for her new show the Feel Good Effect. That was a year ago and since then, I have listened in detail to every single one of her episodes and she continues to amaze me with her big heart, inquisitive mind, business savvy, and seemingly superhuman ability to “do it all.”

As we discuss in this episode, there’s nothing superhuman about it and, in reality, there’s a give and take to everything. In fact, in terms of mindset, one of Robyn’s favorite sayings is “gentle is the new perfect.”

I love it and you’re going to love Robyn.

067: Seek out tranquility, Kimberly Wilson, Tranquility du Jour

“The connecting thread for me is the idea of tranquility… it’s not because I have it all figured out. It’s because I’m always seeking it out too.” ~Kimberly Wilson


Yoga. Mindfulness. Eco Fashion. Writing. Podcast. Conscious Business E-course. Psychotherapy. A charitable foundation called Pigs & Pugs… Kimberly Wilson has created the multi-passionate lifestyle brand of my dreams! (only my foundation would be more like Sloths & Cats… doesn’t have the same ring…)

I’ve been following Kimberly ever since I was a struggling yoga studio owner in 2009 and I sought out her help through her Conscious business e-course and a private coaching.

She told me to start a podcast (among other things.) And years later, I did.

“Just because we made one decision doesn’t mean we have to stay in it forever. And if you do, it’s important to know are you growing within it, or do you feel stagnant?” ~Kimberly Wilson
