Weekly newsletters can be implemented. You can send these newsletters every week as a reminder to the audiences with lucrative entertainment mentioned in the emails. E-mail marketing helps build a loyal customer base.


3. Transcript podcasts into other forms of contents

You must transcript podcasts into other forms of content like videos or in written forms.
Written forms include blogs. There are two ways to do so-- You can directly put out the transcript part in blog format. The second option is that you can write separate blog content based on your podcasts. Blogs have been a hit from the very beginning. Some audiences still prefer to read rather than listen. Senior citizens who are not adapted to the podcasts can become your audience through the blogs. 
Video formats include Youtube. Youtube is the greatest video platform with high fan followers. You can leverage your podcasts by making You Tube videos on them. Videos are much engaging than other media of entertainment. So, why not use it to market your podcasts? 
Search Engine Optimisation or SEO will market your podcasts if they are converted into other formats.

 
4. Market on social media

With the soaring usage of social media, this is the best time to promote your podcasts on social media. From children to adults, everyone is glued on their social media all the time. With such a huge demand in audiences, you must market your podcasts on social media.
Numerous social media can be put into use—Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter. Before using social media for promoting your podcast, you must analyze and segregate your audience.
All of your audiences won’t be using all the social media apps. Thus you can segregate your contents accordingly. You can put out a minute-long teaser of your podcast. You can collab with other influencers on the social media platforms to promote your podcasts as well.   
Social media are a great tool to create an urgency in the audience. This will act as a great benefactor for your podcasts.


5. Feature popular guests

Featuring new guests in every podcast is very helpful. This will itself market your podcast in the greatest possible way. The personalities whom you would endorse in your podcast will have different sets of fan bases based on their popularity and field of work.
You can get direct access to their fandom and target them as your audience. The best part of featuring guests is that you need not go in search of content. Interviewing guests is great quality content on its own. Listeners are always attracted to the familiar personas, which will serve you right.

 

6. Plan and record your podcasts beforehand

If you are a newbie in the podcasts world, then you must record a lot of them beforehand. As much as 8-10 podcasts can be pre-recorded. This will maintain your consistency, which is the pre-requisite in building trust among your audiences.
If you are someone, who is facing troubles in gaining a larger audience, then you should focus on planning. A strategic plan can increase your audience in no time.


7. Arrange contests and giveaways
