Business Brain Podcast Boosts Downloads by 17% With X

May 22, 2024

Attention podcasters: if you aim to amplify your show’s reach engagement, you might want to take a page from the Business Brain playbook. Since broadcasting on X, our very own Business Brain has seen a remarkable 17% uptick in downloads.

And guess what?

We’re here to spill the secrets on how this surge can happen for your podcast too.

Know the Terrain

Success starts with understanding where it stems from. Business Brain—helmed by BackBeat Media co-founder and podcaster, Dave Hamilton and his co-host Shannon Jean—dives into entrepreneurial strategies and advice. The podcast isn’t just heard; it’s applied, making its presence on the right platform a crucial piece of the puzzle.

Strategic Broadcasting

X boasts a vast and engaged audience. X allows you to foster more engagement by prioritizing your replies if you are a premium subscriber and boosting your live streams while fostering an engaged community.

Fostering Listener Engagement

The secret sauce? An interactive listener community. Business Brain has cultivated a space where listeners don’t just tune in—they participate. This level of interaction has significantly boosted the podcast’s visibility and listener loyalty.

Dave Hamilton puts it best: “Successful podcasting is about making genuine connections with the right ears, not just increasing the number of listeners. There’s profound value in deeply engaging with a smaller, devoted group of listeners, who are truly interested, rather than merely broadcasting to a vast audience without meaningful interaction..”

Here are three tips for boosting podcast visibility with X:

  1. Utilize Streamyard: Streamyard is a user-friendly, one-click streaming tool that broadcasts content directly to Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube, making it exceptionally efficient for reaching a broad audience.
  2. Allow Time for Audience Build-Up: Start with a lead-in or introductory segment to give guests time to get comfortable and viewers time to join, as engagement tends to increase.
  3. Strategic Use of Graphics and Tagging: Record two shows back-to-back, using dynamic graphics before, during, and between episodes to keep the audience informed. Set up the system to automatically tag your accounts when going live. Once notified, both Shannon and co-host Dave Hamilton execute a Quote Re-Post to maximize reach, effectively engaging over 12,000 followers on X.
