There are WAY more than three rules of podcasting. This I know for sure.

But if you’re a new podcaster who’s just dropped their first few episodes in the past year or you’re about to start podcasting, these are probably the three most important things you should hear.

Many podcasters choose to invite guests on their podcasts. It’s a great practice not only because you create valuable content, but also because there’s the potential to increase your audience.

I am an SEO nerd.

It would be unfair to say that I’m an expert because my fascination with keywords and placement really doesn’t go beyond the on-page SEO. But when it comes to dolling up your blog with keywords (fashionably, of course) I am your (wo)man.

Let’s be honest, monetizing your podcast is the dream. Even if you LOVE what you do and you’re just doing it for fun, making a little cash — even if it’s just enough to keep it afloat without having to spend money — is never a terrible thing.

I’m a blogger at heart. While I bill clients for a lot of different things from marketing strategy to audio editing, blogging is one of my biggest passions. But running a blog can be a bit challenging, especially if you don’t know what you’re doing.
