So, you want to start a podcast?
Everyone seems to be doing one! How hard could it be—a computer, a microphone, skype? Right?
Well… Not all podcasts are created equal, and the competition for loyal listeners is pretty tough these days. As of December 2018, there are nearly 650,000 podcasts out there with over 18.5 million episodes! And the audience is growing fast (yay!).
49% of Americans are now listening to podcasts—some at home, but 22% now listening in their cars*.
Nearly half the population of the US is listening to podcasts!
That’s a lot of ears looking to be entertained, informed and engaged. As a podcast listener, the choices can be overwhelming. Reaching your audience through this crowded and noisy marketplace isn’t necessarily so easy.
