  2. None
  3. HAVING A PODCAST CTA AND NO CLEAR LANDING PAGE IS

    LIKE HAVING A BILLBOARD WITH NO NUMBER.
  4. …so is having a podcast with no CTA at all.

  5. WHAT WE’LL COVER • How a podcast can grow your

    audience • What a clear CTA looks like • How to use page builders to help you
  6. HOW A PODCAST CAN GROW YOUR AUDIENCE…

  7. GROWING YOUR AUDIENCE • Your podcast is a place to

    flex your knowledge. • Even if you interview people, your job is to guide the guest to that actionable advice based on what your audience wants to know. • Good content garners more listeners, which you can tap into.
  8. TIPS FOR GROWTH • Be authentic • Teach your listeners

    something new • Ask them for feedback / be relatable • Offer incentives • Be consistent
  9. HAVE A CLEAR CALL TO ACTION • Many podcasts suffer

    from the fact that they don’t have a single, clear CTA for their listeners. • Don’t overload your listeners with a laundry list of things to do. • Give them ONE, CLEAR, action they should take. • So what should that action be?
  10. TELL THEM TO SIGN UP FOR YOUR MAILING LIST.

  11. BUILD YOUR MAILING LIST • You should encourage your listeners

    to sign up for your mailing list at the beginning and end of each episode. • From there, you can reach them directly instead of hoping they tune in every week. • Have a compelling opt-in / incentive to get people to sign up • Make it based on your episodes • Keep that list warm!
  12. A GOOD MAILING LIST CTA: • What is the mailing

    list called? • WHY should people sign up? • Where can they sign up? • When will they get the newsletter?
  13. What does a Page Builder have to do with any

    of this?
  14. YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL: Have a killer website you can point

    people too, while also maintaining the reliability of your feed for people who use podcast players.
  15. YOUR PODCAST WEBSITE SHOULD • Be the central place for

    all podcast info • Serve the canonical URL for each episode • Encourage listeners to act
  16. A PAGE BUILDER IS PERFECT FOR THAT!

  17. HOW MY PODCAST SITE IS BUILT • Theme is from

    StudioPress • Page Builder is Beaver Builder • Episode pages are templates with custom code • Home, Sponsor, and Subscribe Pages all use page builder.

  19. IN SHORT! • Page Builders can help you drive conversions

    by creating compelling home and subscribe pages • Your subscribe page should have a mailing list opt-in as well as subscribe buttons! • But there’s one more thing.
  20. TOPIC / SHOW SPECIFIC PAGES

  21. LANDING PAGES GALORE! • Create specific pages for big, “pillar”

    topics (for me that’s podcasting, live streaming, and development) • Create specific landing pages when you go on other people’s podcasts (you do that right?) • Create landing pages for special events or episodes
  22. BUILD THAT LIST! (Using a page builder)
