Secondary Benefits of Podcasting

Secondary Benefits of Podcasting

Why podcast?

There’s a common misconception that success in podcasting depends on download numbers or direct income from advertising or merchandise sales – this isn’t true.

Secondary gains, such as improved communication skills are also beneficial outcomes. Every episode you produce can help to refine your storytelling abilities and thought process.

Beyond having the ability to make a great podcast, these skills can prove invaluable in daily life.

For example:

  • explaining car problems to mechanics

  • selling ideas

  • introducing yourself to strangers

  • job interviews

  • … even marriage proposals!

If becoming a better communicator interests you, consider exploring the world of podcasts even if you're unsure about committing to a specific topic or listenership potential. Podcasting isn’t only about likes or popularity metrics; there's more to gain from it.
