Davids early success with a podcast episode, for unknown reasons, gives an unexpected lesson in our pursuit. We set off to create a podcast network of family friendly podcasts. We expected things to grow slowly, and we talked about it and said that would be OK. We were surprised to find his first normal episode was a big hit. In just a few weeks, the episode on Paul Harvey drew over 600 downloads and continues to grow.
The podcast lesson, or really business lesson here is, sometimes you have early success and it defies our understanding. That is a great time to ask why and how to repeat it. You might also need to appreciate it and realize things may not always be that way.
As of right now we think the key is exactly what I’m doing now, fill in “all the stuff” at libsyn where we host our podcasts.
As part of the Life Podcast Network we will share our learnings, as well as talk about how we are learning to create podcasts and a business startup.
