But how do you get the word out about your podcast? How do you find your audience and connect with listeners as passionate about your show as you are? And most of all, how do you convince strangers on the internet to add another podcast to their listening queue?

Great podcasts need great marketing. In this one-hour course, you’ll put together a comprehensive and actionable marketing plan for your show. Learn how to develop an online voice for your show, where to find potential listeners, and how to add your voice to the broader podcasting community—all on your schedule, using methods you feel great about.
