The podcasting universe is like the economy. There are a few hyper-successful mavericks at the top, a small club of creators doing pretty darn well just below them, and then underneath them there’s the struggling, nameless masses toiling away, hoping and wishing for better days.
It’s possible to make vertical movement from one group to the next but it doesn’t happen by accident. There are podcasters who have been hammering out content for a decade and still, their only listeners are their moms.
But for the few with the know-how, hard-headed dedication, or simply the guidance to break through, podcasting turns into a rewarding magic carpet ride:
✅ You watch your listenership grow, week after week, episode after episode.
✅ You get featured on Apple Podcasts.
✅ People are viewing you as an industry thought leader, and pounding on your door to solicit your expertise.
It’s literally happening for podcasters like you every single day.
They aren’t “famous” in the traditional sense. But they’re famous to the right people: customers, clients and consumers who want to hear the words of an expert like you.
