Having a podcast is easier than having a blog from a business perspective. There are over 600,000 podcasts versus over 440 million blogs. A good podcast focuses on a particular topic or niche. Your topic must be something that will appeal to a wide audience. Consider doing interviews on your podcast. New listeners are drawn to interview podcasts. But not every episode has to have an interview.
Repeat listeners are just as important as new listeners. Make sure your podcast never alienates regular listeners. The success of your podcast will largely depend on the loyalty of regular listeners.
