We look advertising square in the face on the 7th edition of this 10-part miniseries on the future of podcasting. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6) Digital advertising changed the game of advertising forever. Rather than deal with the largely made-up numbers offered by print, radio, and TV publishers, digital ads came with data. Data not just about who saw/ ...…
 
The pending popping of the podcast ad bubble is the topic on part six of my 10-part miniseries on the future of podcasting. (1, 2, 3, 4, & 5) Somewhere around $500 million was spent last year on podcast advertising. Not surprisingly, that number is projected to go up and up over time. But only if advertisers keep feeling good about the ads The ...…

Podcasting’s perceived “discovery problem” is the topic for part 5 of my future-of-podcasting mini-series. (1, 2, 3, & 4) I say “perceived” because podcasting per se doesn't have a discovery problem. People who claim podcasting has a discovery problem really mean that they are upset their content isn’t ranking number one for an arbitrary, singl ...…

The future of free podcast hosting is part 4 of my future of podcasting miniseries. (Pts 1, 2, & 3) In the future, free hosting for podcast media files will be a viable option. I base that prediction on one deciding factor: Spotify is going to do it. But I don't think everybody will switch to free. This is not meant to be a doom-and-gloom predi ...…

The future of RSS feeds is part three of my 10-part miniseries on the future of podcasting. [Part 1, 2] RSS feeds power the backbone of distribution. Barring a few minor namespace additions, they haven’t changed much in 15 years. And that alone makes them vulnerable, because the future favors change. Many (if not most) of people new to podcast ...…

(This is part two of a 10-part miniseries made up of my predictions of the future of podcasting.) Pt 1: Premium Podcasting Will Soon Dominate The Short Head -- For every short head, there’s a long tail. And podcasting’s long tail shall forever be the breeding ground for hobbyists doing amazing things with their podcasts. But… pressure from the ...…

This is the first part of a 10-part miniseries where I will share some predictions I have for the future of podcasting. Let’s start with a bang: In the future, the shows that get the majority of attention and therefore downloads and listens will require some form of payment to access. Yes, I’m aware of the history where this has failed to happe ...…

You already know that you and your episodes need to be in/on the places where these new “rookie” listeners are already consuming podcast content. And you know that “being there” isn’t enough, but that you need to have your content live there, since that’s where the rookie listeners are living. And there’s no reason not to do so, because you can ...…

Today I'm continuing the conversation inspired by Tom Webster's excellent article entitled Three Ways to Survive Podcasting’s Existential Crisis. From that, yesterday I told you that you and your podcast’s episodes need to be everywhere these noobies (rookies, in Tom’s lingo) are finding and consuming podcasts. Places you and I, the working pod ...…

The impetus for this week’s series is an article recently published by Tom Webster, Senior Vice President of Edison Research, entitled Three Ways to Survive Podcasting’s Existential Crisis. And you know what a big fan of existential crises I am! The main premise of the article is that newbie listeners, whom Tom calls ”rookies”, encounter and co ...…

As much as I don't want to disappoint you, I really need back the three hours each day that this show takes. All is good on my end, but I need to put my head down and focus on my business. Here's a taste of what's going on: I'm onboarding two new clients at the same time, and that's a lot of work and focus from me. And I can't let those slip, a ...…
