Today I’m here with podcast host Sarah Martin. She’s tried all kinds of growth strategies to promote her podcast, but it’s been hard to figure out which are working. 

So in this episode, Sarah and I talk about YouTube collaborations, interview swaps, promo swaps, and more. But more importantly, we talk about how to measure your growth efforts, and Sarah walks away with multiple new strategies to try for her podcast.

We cover:

  • YouTube, and if it makes sense for hosts to cross-post their shows
  • How to conduct interview swaps as a win-win for both hosts
  • Who would make a good partner for you, especially outside of your niche
  • How to run a promo swap, and how it’s different from an interview swap
  • How to measure your collaboration efforts to see which are working
