Admit it: you can always use the support of your colleagues. Whether other people who make podcasts have more experience, less experience, or different kinds of experience, there’s always inspiration and strength that comes from being involved with other podcasters. Creating a local group takes some work, and a long period of time, but in the end, you can build community, grow your show, and help others.
Type: Regular technique
Time Required: Put an hour a week into promoting it and an hour for each meeting.
Podcast Level: 10 episodes, or when your workflow is established and comfortable
You probably participate in an online community of podcasters already. If you don’t, you certainly can. You can also survey your audience to find out where your listeners are, and what percentage of them are podcasters themselves.
Find a local coffee shop, pub, or community centre that will let a few people sit around and chat over a beverage for a while. Plan a recurring meeting, brainstorm some discussion topics, and promote the meeting to your friends and followers.
It can be handy to set a topic in advance for each meeting. This can encourage people to turn up.
You can also create meetups online. This gives you the option to meet people anywhere in the world, but removes the impact of face to face interaction.
Whichever you choose, be open to listening, use your best manners, and empower others to do the same.
