If you want your podcast to grow, then you need to have a Facebook group for your podcast community
We all probably have read somewhere that having a Facebook group is the key to growing your podcast yet no none of them explain how to build it for success, tell you what to do with that group, how to grow that group or even how to monetize it.
What I want to do with this post, is share with you the way to build your Facebook group so that it will help you grow your podcast to a point where you can monetize your show.
To start, your Facebook group should be looked at as an extra place that your Ideal Audience Members can come together to talk about the topics of your podcast and not promote your podcast.
It is the secret clubhouse for your listeners. They already listen to your podcast so give them extra content inside the group.
If you’re a comic book focused podcast, then have a thread about the latest issue of a comic and get people’s take on it, so you can use that on your show.
Inside that group is where you will create your super fans, who will go out and do more marketing for you because word of mouth marketing is the most powerful form.
Also when you people join your Facebook group you can poll them about upcoming topics for your show, you can see what they are interested in purchasing and find affiliate offers to show them.
Think about your audience and what they need and find a way to supply it to them inside the group.
Hope this helps if you have any questions please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to help answer them.
