Exploring the space, learning your audience
During the first stage of launching your podcast, it is necessary to get a lay of the land and get to know the audience that we will be working with.
Surveys and Goal Setting:
During your on-boarding we will send you 2 surveys. Each with questions about your new show. These surveys will also inform us about the audience you would like to hit.
This first step takes between 1-2 weeks of work that requires our researchers to scour the internet and collect important data. Most of this will be passed back on to you, and everything will be used to make your show absolutely stellar. Below is a detailed breakdown of each task required complete the research step.
During the first meeting we want to make sure we understand what your podcasting vision. We will chat about the New and Noteworthy on Apple Podcasts, and our podcast creation process.
After we get the contracts signed, we will begin the on-boarding process. A major part of this is completing a survey detailing who you want to speak to, and what you want to talk about.
After meeting, we are going to start exploring your podcast's potential landscape by figuring out where your ideal audience lives, loves, and spends money on.
Giving your show a fighting chance requires that we know who else is living in the podcasting space. We will include powerful metrics on your fellow podcasters in our report.
Like any SEO strategy we want to know the 12-15 words we are going to try and make you the king/queen of.
This step entails giving you a 30,000ft view of the podcasting scene with numbers and metrics to see who big and engaged your die-hard fans tend to be.
(For internal use) We want to know what influencers, tastemakers, and important voices are in you world. That way we can reach out to them and make friends.
