Early Lessons I Learned in Podcasting

Around five years ago, I started my “Farm4Profit” podcast. Today, it’s closing in on 350 episodes and ranks in the top 1% of podcasts in the world. I learned a lot of lessons along the way — here are some I wish I learned sooner.

Understanding Our Audience Better

Over time, podcasters gain a deeper understanding of their audience's preferences, interests, and demographics. Through listener feedback, analytics, and engagement metrics, they learn what resonates most with their audience and can tailor their content accordingly. This understanding allows them to create more targeted and engaging episodes that keep listeners coming back for more.

Refining Content and Format

Podcasters often experiment with different content formats, episode lengths, and topics during their first year. Through trial and error, they discover what works best for their show and audience. They may refine their content strategy, streamline their format, and focus on producing high-quality episodes that align with their niche and goals. This process of refinement helps podcasters hone their craft and elevate the overall quality of their show.
