									7 Tips To Fight Podfade
How Can I Fight Podfade?

“Podfade” is the term for podcasts that start out strong but slowly (or abruptly!)
disappear into the ether, when the podcaster loses interest, gets too busy, or just gives


Don’t let it happen to you!

Take these tips to heart to become a podcaster of longevity, not brevity:

1. Pick a topic you’re truly passionate about
If you’re not that into Barbies, don’t start a podcast on them just because you think the
market is going to be hot. Your lack of enthusiasm will show. True enthusiasts and
rabid fans know a faker from a mile away. Don’t be that guy.

2. Don’t go too narrow
Want to talk about all-natural wart remedies? That’s a viable business, indeed. But will
you run out of topics in a month or two? Make sure you have a list of topics for the next
six months, at a minimum.

If you can’t come up with at least a dozen topics, broaden your topic area. Maybe you
could talk about all-natural skin care, or skin problems.

3. Don’t be overly ambitious
Saying you’re going to podcast every day for the rest of your life is a bit insane. You
can still take advantage of that early burst of energy by recording dozens of podcasts,
if that’s what you’re inclined to do.

But rather than releasing them all immediately, space them out, with one a week or so.
Treat them like your kids treat their Halloween candy: Make it last.

4. Incorporate new items
After you’ve been podcasting for a while, you may lose your enthusiasm because you
feel like the whole thing is just a bit too routine.

Incorporate some new items into your podcast; bring in a guest host, add interviews or
product reviews, take Q&A from your audience. Mix it up to get your mojo back.

5. Take a break
Some of the best podcasters out there take regular breaks from podcasting. They
create a podcast series – 10 or 15 podcasts on a theme – and then they take a few
weeks off to create their next series and recharge their batteries.

Just let your audience know your intentions so they don’t think you’ve disappeared
without a trace.

6. Podcast with a friend
Many radio shows rely on multiple hosts. Not only does this break up the flow, it also
gives you someone to bounce things off of, to generate new ideas, and to cover if you
need to take a break for a while. Think about sharing hosting duties with a colleague in
your niche.

7. Get feedback
One of the toughest things about podcasting is feeling like you’re operating in a
vacuum. You’re never quite sure if anyone is out there, or if they’re just downloading
your show to leave on for their parakeet to listen to while they’re at work all day.

Asking your audience for feedback is a great way to keep your energy from flagging,
as well as to generate new content for upcoming shows.

Ask what questions people have, what they think about a topic, and who they’d like you
to interview.
