21: Q&A When you have a dip in your downloads, what’s the best way to bring your numbers back up?

The Tao of Self ConfidenceSheena Yap Chan, host of the The Tao of Self Confidence, asks:

“When you have a dip in your downloads, what’s the best way to bring your numbers back up?”

Brian covers some amazing strategies to help you get out of that “download slump”, including (but not limited to)…

  • Reviewing your podcast topic: is it the best topic for YOU?
  • Asking yourself some tough questions, like is this topic resonating with my listeners? Is this something they want? Is it valuable? And most importantly – is it solving a pain or fulfilling a desire they have?
  • Starting to really engage your listener – get them involved so they’ll actually WANT to come back!
  • It might seem super obvious, but it’s something A LOT of podcasters miss: are you actually telling people about your podcast??
  • BE CONSISTENT.

Remember, there’s a difference between a dip in downloads and simply plateauing; as long as your listeners are getting value from your episodes, stay the course.

It can take a while to reach critical mass – to get to the point where your listeners will actually start helping you market your podcast. But if you follow the advice in this episode, it will help you get out of that dip!
