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
