If you want to benefit your online business, then as an Internet marketer, you will always need to be well equipped to taking that next step. Creating a podcast is something that can immensely help you build a strong relationship with your target audience and actually give real value to them. Below we will be discussing some things that you should keep in mind when it comes to creating a successful podcast.
Be Chunky: Keeping your listeners interested rather than having them feel bored with your podcast is path to success. Making each segment short and different with some type of audio “bumper” between the segments is a good way to keep the listeners attention. It isn’t important what that is, it can be a whimsical trick or your own, or a different sound effect. Whatever you choose to do, by making your podcast chunky you’ll make it more fun and easy to follow. People today are literally bored of anything that even comes close to long and arduous. While your aim with the podcast is to give your listeners value, how you segment it also plays a role in enhancing this very value.
Newsgrowing.com has a history of having Guest Speakers: Doing interviews during podcasts are pretty common, so if this is something you want to do then be sure to let your guest do most of the talking. This is the best way for your listeners to enjoy your podcast, because if someone is listening to the interview, they will want to hear what the guest says in response to your questions. You don’t want to ask close ended questions, however you do want to make your questions short and to the point. Regardless of the kind of topic you are covering in the interview, allow your guest to handle the “value-giving” portion and it will make your listeners happy. Having your guest interview is a value you are trying to give during your podcast, so while you may have the urge to give your own input or talk in between, make sure that it doesn’t detract from the value offered.
Add Levity: There is something special about a lighthearted and humorous podcast that not only gets your attention but also manages to give you information without making you bored. You should know that it’s not only the quality of your content that matters here, but also how you convey it through your podcast.

Your listeners will probably have fun and enjoy your podcast more if you add little bits of humor in here and there. It will be obvious to your listeners if it seems like you didn’t enjoy making the podcast, and that is not a good thing. Its important that your listeners get the impression that you do know what you are talking about, but also that you’re not compulsive in doing this. You will reel them in if your podcast offers your listeners a good feeling as well as a dose of the right kind of humor. By including these tips in your podcast, you will see an immediate difference in your listeners response which is something you can build on as time goes by.
