How to Break the Podcast Rules and Get Away with It
Is your show starting to get a bit predictable (and boring)? Maybe it’s time to break a few rules and shake things up a bit.
Breaking the rules (self-imposed or industry wide) can be risky business but it can also add some needed spark to your show. But – be warned – you can do it wrong.
There are a lot of good reasons to break the rules from time to time. Not all the time – but once in a while. And, if you’ve listen to my show at all, then you won’t be surprised to hear that one of the main reasons you should throw the rules out the window is that it can really serve your listener.
In this episode of Just the Tip, I’ll walk you through the dos and don’ts of breaking a few rules when it comes to your podcasts. Whether you’re a solo-caster, part of a team or interviewing guests, I’ll give you some great ways to shake things up a bit. You know, get a little freaky to keep the love alive.
Plus, I’ll explain why you’ll want to do this and exactly how it’s going to make more of your listeners engaging fans.
Consider this episode your guide to detouring from the same old, same old; to safely leaving the path for a little bit.
Plus, I’ll tell you the one rule you must never break. Let me say that again with a bit of reverb: One. Rule. You. Must. Never. Break. Yes, this could alienate your fans and kill your podcast. And, I’ve heard plenty of podcasters make this mistake.
So, wake up your inner rebel and press play. Mild anarchy is just ahead.
