S2E31 – Balancing Sponsorships and Listenership

Show Summary: 

Monetizing may sound like the ultimate goal. But after blasting sponsored advertisements, the listenership that you have worked so hard for in the first place loses interest. Is there a way to keep both so your podcast show stays afloat?

It’s always exciting to partner with brands, especially the ones that you’re a fan of.  If you’re a longtime-user and you highly believe in their products, then it’s great to partner up with them. 

Aside from that, you also have to make sure that the solution they’re offering is the same solution suited for your listeners. Otherwise, it’ll only be a matter of time before you lose them. 

That is why tracking the data and analytics for each episode is a must. If you have sponsors, you can immediately see if continuing the ad insertion is still effective, or you might need to adjust to other placements. 

Episode 31 is the fourth of The Podcash Show’s mini series on how you can make listeners stick with you from beginning to end. I’m here to share with you three tips (3) on how to keep your listeners engaged while earning from your podcast.

  • If you have sponsors, check data and analytics per episode. This way, you can make a decision if the ad insertions are effective or not.

Show Highlights:

Kai 01:54

  • Create a harmonious listening experience by avoiding repetitive and disruptive presentation of the ad. Relevant brand keywords that support the podcast’s topic will help keep the message fluid and intact.

Kai 03:28

  • Prime your audience for transitions using sound effects. Or before diving in to the next topic, give them a heads up that they’ll hear a short commercial break.

Kai 04:31

  • Think long-term and turn down sponsors that do not serve anything valuable or align with your dear listeners. Remember that as you grow your podcast, your audience also grows with you.

S2E30 – Guest Interviews That Fit Your Audience

Show Summary: Networking expands connections with industry leaders and tap new audiences for your podcast. But if having guests on your show has caused you to lose loyal listeners, you may have skipped the process of filtering them.

For seasoned podcasters, guest interviews are a great way to expand growth and tap into new audiences. Yet, as you may have charged to experience, not all guests are right and welcome to your existing followers.

Having championed a certain niche, your podcast has attracted and established your listenership for a particular reason. It resonates with who they are and their needs. Thus, before inviting guests, consider first the compatibility of their message with your audience.

Kai 02:30

  • Create a pre-selected wish list of guests for your show. There’s a higher probability that you already know like-minded experts who can contribute their unique insights in your industry.

Kai 03:25

  • Identify potential guest collaborations with a prequalification form that consolidates and gives you a preview if you are aligned in just one sheet.

S2E29 – How Audio Quality Affects Listenership

Show Summary: “Study shows that producing low-quality audio negatively affects the perception of the speaker and their source of information. As podcasters, are you confident about the quality of audio experience that you’re giving to your listeners?” 

As podcasters, one of the reasons why we publish content is to build connections with our audience. And if we have services to offer, we also want to be top of mind if they need a solution to their problems. And since YOU are the solution to their problems, we want to make sure that they think highly of you. 

Based on the study made by USC and the Australian National University, researchers found out that when content produced, in the form of audio and video, is of low quality, you will most likely be perceived as less likable and credible. And if you want to be seen as an expert on your chosen niche, that’s the last thing you would want to do. 

The same study also mentioned that aside from the negative perception, low quality production makes it difficult for your listeners to process the information and absorb your content. Inevitably, they’ll hit pause or stop altogether from listening to your episodes.

Episode 29 is the second of The Podcash Show’s mini series on how you can make listeners stick with you from beginning to end. In this special episode, learn the five do’s and don’ts that you need to do to enhance the audio quality for your listeners so they’ll finish every episode that you produce.

Exceptional Highlights:

  • Sound like a pro by investing even in the simplest yet great quality microphone (tune in to find out the exact model that I use!). Relying on a built-in laptop microphone makes you seem unprepared. 
  • A multitrack recording simultaneously saved by both host and guest is highly recommended. This practice gives you room for adjustments during post-production.
  • I don’t suggest repurposing live videos to podcast episodes as it is not focused on your podcast audience. But if that’s your preference, make sure you consider your audio listeners during the live session.

Show Highlights:

Kai 03:12

  • Indeed, post-production helps improve your audio quality. However, podcast producers and editors are not magicians. So if you want to produce high-quality audio, you should start with the recording itself.

Kai 04:16

  • Consider and control the time and place of your recording. Inform people around you to prevent avoidable noises and distractions like an unwelcome knock on your door.

Kai 05:15

  • Have an outline with you. Even with just keywords instead of a script, that helps your train of thought focused and with ease throughout the recording. It also keeps better and succinct discussions with guests.
