The #1 Reason You're Not Getting Views on Your Podcast and How to Fix It

podcast

I used to get super frustrated when I put out a killer podcast episode, but it didn’t get any views.

So I tried getting fancy cameras and microphones, but it didn’t help.

I tried hiring video editors of all types– short-form agencies, VAs, and consultants– did little.

I thought maybe my guests weren’t high profile enough– nope.

I’ve interviewed “A” list of celebrities and the top people in multiple industries.

Maybe I needed killer copywriting or social media experts—nada. They just took my money and promoted more coaching and courses.

Finally, I figured it out.

You need to repurpose that Podcast episode into YouTube, blog posts, and social media snippets.

And then run Dollar a Day against that guest’s audience.

So, if I do a podcast with Roger Wakefield, who is well-known among plumbers, I’ll boost that episode for $1 a day against people who follow Roger Wakefield.

What channel should you boost to, you ask?

The one where he has the most traction—so the answer is not always Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, or whatever.

The main point here is to amplify against an already engaged audience instead of trying to build from zero.

I’m a nobody, relative to my guests– so it’s so much less effort and frustration to boost to their audiences.

If you’re a “nobody” and trying to sell services to a particular niche, why pursue the “money bro” path of spamming the planet with big promises when you can build relationships with the LIGHTHOUSE that folks in your niche respect?

Here’s how I test whether my co-created content (aka, podcast) is working.

I Google that guest’s name + my name.

Then see what shows up– the YouTube, article link, tweets, Instagram, etc…

Whatever is doing best, I put more effort into (create related content, chop up more pieces) and also boost for $1 a day.

But most of you are so busy trying to produce more content (stage 1 of the 4-stage Content Factory) that your content never gets to repurposing (stage 2), posting on multiple channels (stage 3), or boosting (stage 4).

The 4-stages of Content Factory

If you’re too busy to handle stages 2-4, then hire a VA to do it (who is qualified via our training) or have a young adult who runs an agency do it for you.

Hint: your time and my time is worth more than $3 an hour, so we should stay within stage 1– to be making videos with key people in our community, while delegating out stages 2-4.

Do you have your Content Factory in place?

If showing up in Google is important to you…

And you are in home services?

And you are doing at least $80,000 a month?

And you have at least 100 reviews at 4.5 stars?

I can recommend agencies who can help you.

Each one specializes in one vertical– pest control, plumbing/HVAC, pool building, landscaping, roofing, and so forth.

If you are not in a Google LSA category, you can still go through our training and learn how, plus buy coaching from me.

Working with Dennis has been a delightful experience. After meeting him in 2015 I got to collaborate with him on countless occasions. His understanding for state-of-the-art marketing, his implementation, and his leadership put him into the top 0.01% of marketers and mentors.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dennis for my podcast in 2021 and since then we have maintained a friendship that grows with each interaction. I have seen Dennis' devotion to his friends and clients firsthand, and our conversations often result in us talking about how we can provide more value to the people around us. He is someone whom I can ask questions on a technical level, and look to on a personal level. If you have any hesitancy about hiring him, get over yourself and do it!

Geez, where do I start recommending Dennis? First, he is an absolutely brilliant marketer who understands where marketing is today and where it's going tomorrow. He also has an incredible passion for the International Worker community. The lessons he has taught me from his almost 20 years of experience hiring International Workers have been immense. Most importantly though. Dennis Yu is someone who wants the absolute best for you and is willing to tell you the truth. Dennis sat with me at a point in my business where I was floundering but did not want to admit it. He asked some very straight forward questions to get me to admit my issues, highlighted the issues, and then helped me create a roadmap to success.
