What Offline Networking Means for Online Brand Success

When you attended your last conference, did you notice people mentioning social media channels? For example, did guest speakers give attendees a hashtag to follow? Or did workshop hosts ask participants to “like” their Facebook pages?

If so, you’ve witnessed individuals maximizing their offline activities, in order to increase their online personas. These methods keep highly-networked audiences engaged with your brand after your in-person encounters. As a podcaster, it’s to your benefit to recreate and personalize these techniques to draw attention to your podcast.

How To Keep Your Podcast Topic Sounding Fresh

Exploring the different sides of your topic

How can you make sure that you never podfade or run out of things to talk about on your podcast? Most of the work you put into your podcast revolves around presenting your main topic in an entertaining and informative way – and it’s the core reason why your listeners tune in. It has to be multifaceted and provide numerous fresh angles.

While excellent storytelling skills can make anything sound interesting enough, bringing content that’s of value to your audience is what will keep them coming back. It’s all about drawing from the resources available to you, and finding those unique takes. You can refer to your listeners’ feedback and contributions, scrape podcast topic ideas from other media sources in your genre, subscribe to newsletters, set up google alerts, and run thorough keyword searches.

Learn about all the different ways you can make the most out of your podcast’s topic in this episode of the Spreaker Live Show.
