On today’s show, we got to pick the brain of one of the most prolific promoters and producers of podcasts, Jonathan Rivera. With Jonathan’s proven formula over at The Podcast Factory, he and his team produce winner after winner on the iTunes charts. By anyone’s standards in this line of work, that’s no joke.
You may even listen to some of the shows Jonathan and the team produces. Shows like Ben Settle’s Anti-Preneur Show (now The BenSettle.com Podcast), Doberman Dan’s Off the Chain, and the Making Agents Rich Show, if you’ve ever considered finding a consultant to help you launch your own podcast, you’d be in great company over at The Podcast Factory.
Nothing like a group of guys sitting around talking about talking. It’s definitely worth a listen if you’re ready to tackle the mic and take your message out to the masses…At least to the ones that matter to your business anyway.
Today we talk about why you should consider launching a podcast, the right business model to use for podcast growth, how to launch properly, building momentum, eliminating bottlenecks, work-life balance and the truth about iTunes.
If you’re doubling your business…Downloads, iTunes stats, all that crap doesn’t matter because you’re too busy counting your money.” – Jonathan Rivera
