All you have to do to be successful at podcasting is a) make great content, b) attract a big audience, and then c) rake in the dough. Yeah. If it were that easy, we’d all do it. Here’s why we don’t.

Make great content.

Okay, no problem there. Because it’s easy to make great content, right? Well… If it’s so easy to make great content, why isn’t there more of it?

Attract a big audience.

If you really are able to consistently make great content, then this part is easier to do, relatively speaking. But it’s not a guarantee that great content leads to a big audience. More often than not, that’s not the case.


To play out this scenario, let’s assume you’ve made great content and you’ve acquired a big audience. Now: you profit. Simple. Done. Right?
