The Starting Five

1. How To Grow Your Podcast, Market Your Course, And What I’ve Learned From My Own Podcast Launch

In this week’s episode of my I Want To Know podcast I explain how to use a newsletter to grow your podcast, break down one of the most common mistakes creators make when marketing a course, and share what I’ve learned from launching my own podcast.

Watch it on YouTube at the link above (and subscribe to my channel while you’re at it) or listen to it here or on your favorite podcast platform.

2. 10 Ways To Become A Stronger Public Speaker

These are better — and more specific — than the typical advice you get about how to capture and keep people’s attention when giving a presentation.

3. How To Fire A Client

It’s just as important to part ways with a client who’s a bad fit as it is to bring on a new one — this will show you how to handle it in a way that makes the best of a bad situation.

4. 20 Creative Twitter Banner Examples

If you’re not sure what message you want to send to prospective followers, these examples are sure to give you some ideas. I particularly enjoyed the first one. 😉
