    Let’s face it, first impressions are lasting impressions and your podcast cover art is the first thing potential new listeners see when they come across your show.

    First impressions are important so you want to have a simple, yet eye-catching design that works as well at the size of a postage stamp as well as on a large desktop screen.

    Also, please note that you need cover art in order to submit your podcast to the major directories ...

    Podcasting a Marketing Tool For Your Business

    When you have decided to start a podcast for your business, remember, it should be an extension of your brand, not a replacement of your brand.


    When starting a podcast for your business you should always start with a concept, topic or niche.  What is your podcast going to be about?  Will it be about the product and services that you offer or will it be a topic that is related...

    One of the biggest challenges a podcast host has is getting more ears to their show, wanting to get a lot of downloads so that it not only feeds their egos, but may also feed their pockets.

    However, listeners are not too keen on paying for a podcast or even buying a cup of coffee or donating to your show.  As there are over 1 million published podcast shows, listeners feel that they should be free like public radio.

    Do you agree?

    Podcast creation is becoming very popular and it’s HOT - but so is listening to podcasts too!  People are boasting about and promoting on their social media platforms about how they are bingeing on podcasts.  Podcasting bingeing is actually better than "Chillaxin with Netflix", sitting on a sofa with ice cream and consuming content when they have time.

    CTA's are vital, they tell listeners what to do next or how to connect to you.

    Sponsor relationships can be beneficial for everyone involved, but they’re not required to be a successful or profitable podcast.

    • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

    • Dr. Death

      We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
