Building a Large AND Passionate Audience

MerrittTom.gifPNME 2007 #50: Building a Large AND Passionate Audience

A passionate audience means much more than just a large one. Passionate, engaged audiences tend to grow faster because your listeners help you spread the word and achieve success much faster. The flagship podcast at CNET has followed a tried and true formula for engaging the passion of our audience by providing better programming. These are tips and tricks learned during the ZDTV/TechTV days, and still used by Diggnation, TWiT and DL.TV. Find out some of the ways to make your audience love what you do and become your word-of-mouth marketing department. Instructor: Tom Merritt of CNET TV

    When I originally commented I seem to have clicked oon the
    -Notify me when new comnents are added- checkbox and from
    now on every time a comment is added I get 4 emailss with the same
    comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you
    are able to remove me from that service? Many thanks!
