Summary

Growing a podcast audience takes time, energy, and the right strategy. Listen to Louis Nicholls describe a business idea to help podcasters connect with each other's audiences to gain exposure.

Show Notes

Nuggets:

  • Balancing 2-sided marketplaces is tricky - better to stick with roughly even instead of trying to match podcasters with dramatically different audience numbers
  • The criterion that determines when you should build a business around a 2-sided market

Action Steps:

  1. Contact up-and-coming podcasters and offer this matching service
  2. Contact podcast hosting companies and sell them on building this service for their customers
Follow through on these action steps and email us your results at update@runwithit.fm. You'll get exclusive access to a private Facebook group of action takers and one listener will earn a free mentorship call with our guest, and potentially, a business partnership.
