I got this question from none other than the great Sean D'Souza the other day when he was interviewing me for his members.
We were talking about why I believe you should have an audience before you launch your podcast show and he asked, “Jonathan, why do people need to have an audience if there are already millions of listeners in iTunes every day. Couldn't they just launch their podcast and build an audience from there?”
It sounds nice in theory, but in my experience the only way you're going to reach all those new listeners and massively increase your audience is by getting your show into New and Noteworthy when you launch.
And, more specifically into one of the top 14 spots where people randomly searching iTunes can find you when they log in.
It's no secret that I have launched 11 of my last 11 shows into the top 10 in New and Noteworthy. And one of the things we do is called the “Super Fan” corral – where we get the people most interested in you and your topic into one place and hype them up for your launch.
It's too much to explain in this note, but tomorrow >> Thursday September 8th at 2:00 pm ET you're going to find out how we use the “Super Fan Corral” along with a Sean D'Souza consumption sequence to have your fans lined up and chomping at the bit for your new show to launch in iTunes.
Plus you'll find out how to use all their excitement to catapult your show up the charts so you hit the New and Noteworthy section lickety-split.
