This is high level info, loving it!

I contacted Juergen through the website and took him up on his offer of a free podcast training session through Zoom. He was very generous with his time, and gave me tons of great tips and ideas on how to improve my show. I am now going through each episode and taking notes on ways I can improve my podcast. This is high level info, loving it

Dive into the Polymash Experience

I found this podcast late in my launch phase. I've been listening to a bunch of other ones, following a bunch of other tools and solutions, and generally chasing my tail for a couple of months now. Thing is, Polymash and Jeurgen have somehow figured out how to best them all. The website and email newsletter are chock full of value first. They have (obviously) made that a priority. And the podcast is a wonderful example of the podcaster I want to be. If you're thinking about starting or growing a podcast, dive into the Polymash experience. You won't be disappointed.

Podcast Production Workflow

Podcast Production Framework 

Most business oriented podcasts are interview based. The concept is to talk with leaders in your field and share their insights and experience with your audience. We help podcasters develop production processes to fit their podcast production goals.

A Podcast Production Framework

While podcasters relish the creative aspect of recording and engaging with guests, the technical side—editing audio, tagging metadata, and crafting SEO-friendly show notes—often feels tedious. At Polymash, our Podcast Production Framework streamlines these processes, delivering professional audio quality and compelling content, all with the aim of maximizing efficiency and listener engagement. Here's what we focus on:

  • Broadcast ready audio
  • Automating the process as much as possible
  • Templates to help with everything
  • Episode planning for SEO and content themes
  • Click-worthy show notes & episode titles

Podcast Marketing and Subscriber Growth

What is the best way to promote a podcast?

More Than Show Notes: Content Marketing Campaigns For Your Podcast 

Our writers and SEO experts craft podcast content marketing campaigns to drive discoverability, traffic & email list growth.

The Apple Podcast Charts may be broken, but here are top alternative strategies, tactics and mistakes to avoid when promoting your podcast.

A video walk-through of a highly converting podcast website design that engages your listeners and turns them into  email subscribers.

Promoting a podcast effectively in 2024 involves a dynamic approach as platforms like Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google frequently update their algorithms. While gaining listeners on Apple Podcasts is a common goal for podcasters, it's not the only strategy for success. 

A robust online presence, mainly through a well-designed podcast website, is essential for subscriber growth. Paid ads can direct traffic to a high-converting landing page, while organic search can benefit from SEO-optimized show notes.

Our podcast marketing approach at Polymash ensures a steady stream of new subscribers by focusing on:

  • Diversifying promotion across various channels and not relying solely on Apple Podcasts.
  • Leveraging the podcast website as the central hub for subscriber acquisition.
  • Implementing SEO strategies to enhance organic discoverability and web traffic.
  • Creating engaging, optimized content that resonates with both listeners and search engines.
Podcast SEO ROI

The ROI

By following our framework, clients typically see 65% of their traffic coming from organic search, translating to significant cost savings over paid advertising and a solid return on investment.

About Polymash Podcasting

Juergen Berkessel

About Juergen Berkessel

My name is Juergen Berkessel, and my entrepreneurial journey started in 2010, when I left my corporate job.

After years of having created and managed enterprise software systems, I started a Marketing Agency that published iOS and Android apps - and I learned how to market these on the iTunes app store. 

Then I discovered my passion: Helping authors, speakers, entrepreneurs and start-ups grow their online presence through podcasting as content strategy.

We launched a couple of #1 shows on iTunes - Apple Podcasts -  and I was hooked after seeing the results. None of these were instant successes, mind you. But the benefits in terms of traffic, leads, relationships kept increasing steadily.

So whether you are passionate about your message, or focused on business outcomes of podcasting, feel free to schedule a conversation to see how podcasting could work for you, or how you could grow your existing show even further.
