The Why

Click to Tweets for Promoting Your Podcast

This internet is a place where attention is valuable. Once you get someone’s attention and they believe that what your saying is worth sharing with people, you’ve done the most important job. That should be the idea spreaders first priority: make something worth sharing.

Once you’ve created something valuable enough to share, move into the steps listed above. That is, making it easy for people to share. In fact you want to make it so easy that someone could almost accidentally share your stuff. I’ll take it one step further, you must make it so good that the person sharing is feeling like you are doing them a service by providing great information/entertainment and making it so they seem really cool to their friends and family because they can share your stuff so easily.

That’s the key to all of this. Make amazing art so that people seek you out and share your stuff as a favor to themselves.

Huzzah!
