Pinterest is well known for it’s potential to drive traffic but can it also be used to grow an audience for a podcast?

In this episode of the podcast, I chat with Chris Enns, the host of Show Me Your Mic about:

  • Ways to make podcasts shareable
  • What podcasting niche is utilizing Pinterest most
  • Using Pinterest to connect with your target audience
  • Benefits of pinning your content to Pinterest
  • Growing a community with Pinterest and a podcast
  • Using Pinterest for inspiration

Growing a Podcast Audience with Pinterest

Chris mentioned in our conversation that sometimes we get stuck in a sort of bubble, where we don’t go beyond the people who interested in the same things we are and are comfortable with. Exploring a new platform like Pinterest or a new way of communicating such as through podcasting can help us reach beyond that bubble.

One of the things that I like about both Pinterest and podcasts is that I can find find information about almost any subject. One problem I run into is that many time podcasters are so focused on the content and the quality of the audio that they don’t include a pinnable image with each episode or even for their show.  This might be why I don’t yet see many podcasts shared on Pinterest.

For more information about how to easily create pinnable images click here.

    I’ve always found making WOW content part 1 of building your audience. This was a great episode. I listen to both of your podcasts. Then its a matter of figuring out who your audience is, where they are, then going to them. Making friends, and then tell them about your podcast (in that order).

      Dave,

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      I 100% agree with you. No matter what platform you’re on whether it be blogging or podcasting great content is a must.

      Thanks for listening. It has been a learning experience but it has been fun.
