Watering My Wife’s Plants

She asked me to SATURATE some of them… what does that mean? It means entirely soak them… cover them… overwhelm them with water!

This episode is about THAT, for your podcast. Here are some of the best ways to do it

Syndication (platforms) – my list of “how to” instructions: https://podcastfasttrack.com/podcast-directories-2018-2019-get-submitted/

This is Apple, Spotify, Google, Stitcher, etc. – use my list above to get your show on all the platforms you can!

Social sharing / promotion

  • Platform appropriate frequencies
  • Your content and OTHER’s content
  • co-schedule shares how often to share on each platform: https://coschedule.com/blog/how-often-to-post-on-social-media
  • Do it the RIGHT way (Jeremy Enns upcoming episode) – empathy and generosity
  • TRULY HELPFUL approach
  • ALWAYS include a link back to the full episode (1st comment?)

Other methods

  • Your audience (requires you have a GREAT show they want to share)
  • Ask them to share specifically (pause, ask, resume)
  • Emails to your list asking for shares periodically
  • Other people’s social
  • Mention other accounts related to your episode (at mention tag)

  • Trade magazines or publications/websites/media
  • Requires scrappiness and hustle
  • VA could do with the right instructions (but avoid being SPAMMY)
  • Appropriately leverage relationships / groups
