Let's talk about Podcasts

🎙 Let's talk Podcasts for a bit… It seems like everyone is starting a podcast right now. 🎙

🦻🏻 70% of Americans have heard of Podcasts (up from 64% in 2018)
🎧 22% listen to Podcasts Weekly
🎙 There are ~750,000 podcasts. Up from 550,000 last year (compare to 23M YouTube channels)
😱 These channels have more than 29 million episodes
🕖 76.8% of podcast listeners listen for more than 7 hours a week
📺 61.2% of listeners spend more time listening to podcasts than consuming TV shows
🧐 80% listen to more than half of every episode.

Is the market overcrowded? Or is there still opportunity?

💭 I’d love to hear your thoughts 👇🏻 :)

Here are my 2 cents. There is a huge market opportunity for podcasts. The listener base is growing rapidly and podcast listeners are incredibly loyal (see above). That said, the more saturated the market becomes, the harder it will be to get ahead. Also, Podcasts aren’t easy. Most podcasts don’t last long. In fact, only 20% of podcasts have released an episode in the past 90 days. If you want to get into the game, be consistent. Your hard work will pay off :).

We started the SuccessQuest podcast a mere 30 weeks ago. I’m proud to say that we’ve been consistent. We haven’t missed a Thursday :).

Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.

Do you want to change your behavior? Change your identity.

In a recent Self Improvement Daily episode, Brian Ford talked with Jim Fortinabout the power of identity. (A powerful podcast episode. Link in the comments)

A non smoker isn’t even tempted if someone asks them to smoke. Why? Because it’s part of their identity.

How many times have you heard “I don’t smoke.”

They don’t even have to decide because they identify as a non smoker.

🤔 What behaviors do you want to get rid of or create?

⭐️ Now decide what identity you need to adopt to become who you want to be.

An identity that has meant a lot to me is my identity as a child of God.

“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” - Romans 8:16-17

Think about it. You are a literal son or daughter of the most powerful being. You are his heir. You are important. You have an infinite potential.

Don’t ever forget it.

Here’s a link to a music video that my little brother did. It has a powerful message. And my little family is in it.

Enjoy!
