It’s getting close to that time of year where you’re probably thinking about your New Years resolutions. We have one more that you should add to your list: Start your very own podcast. Here are 5 reasons why you need to start a podcast in 2023.
1. Audio Content is Growing in Popularity
One of the most convenient ways for consumers to get their information on the go is through audio content. In a world where multi-tasking is the new norm, the only way to grab someone’s attention is to offer information through a hands-free approach. In doing so, you’ll have the opportunity to build your audience and attract more interest in your brand.
2. Grow Your Personal Brand
You don’t have to be a podcast expert to get started! A podcast is a great way to advertise and grow your personal brand. No matter what your brand is, you can increase the size and value of your network simply by hosting your own show! Having your own podcast allows you to put yourself in a position of authority and be the informed source for your listeners. You can invite guests to your podcast as well. In doing so, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with groups and individuals you might not have met otherwise.
3. You Can Monetize Your Show
Podcasting may not be just a hobby for you. If you’re looking for an extra source of income or want to make podcasting your full-time job, there’s always an opportunity to monetize your show. There are multiple ways to monetize your podcast. You can market your products/services, participate in affiliate marketing/links, or (if your downloads are high enough) you can advertise sponsors on your show for a fee. Do plenty of research before you begin monetizing your podcast!
4. It’s Really Not That Much Work
We know it’s probably overwhelming to not only think about starting a podcast, but also coming up with a plan to stay consistent. The reality is, it’s not that much work. Your podcast only needs about one show per week, and factoring in all the time it takes to plan a show, record, edit, and promote, you’re spending less that 5 hours a week catering to your podcast.

5. Did We Mention it’s a Whole Lot of Fun?!
Above all, hosting your own show can be a lot of fun! You’ll get to spend time each week talking about the things that excite you and keep you motivated. Your podcast is your opportunity to talk about whatever you want and be creative! So why not invest a bit of your time creating something that will leave you feeling happy and energized?
THIS IS YOUR SIGN TO START YOUR PODCAST IN 2023! Good luck podcasters 🙂
