Before you read the rest of this article take my podcast survey right here.
Starting Over On My Podcast
You may have noticed that I haven’t produced a podcast episode in a while. In fact my last episode came out on May 12th of this year and I have a good reason for it.
First off, I started a completely brand new blog called Wallet Impact and I’ve been spending a lot of time there and as you may have noticed I haven’t been spending a whole lot of time here on Stumble Forward.
I still plan to release content here on Stumble Forward but the podcast is done for the most part but that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to do anymore podcast.
In fact I’m in the beginning stages of starting a brand new podcast but rather moving it under the Wallet Impact brand. However before I do this I am conducting a survey to learn more about the people who listen to podcast to see what they would be the most interested in hearing.
As a result I have put this 8 Question Podcast Survey together which you can take right now.
This survey will help me determine the direction I should take this podcast in and what specifically people are really looking for when it comes to content.
My Big Mistake
You see when I launched The Stumble Forward Podcast I made a few big mistakes right off the bat.
First, I didn’t pick a clearly defined niche but rather just went with a more general personal finance podcast. Not defining my niche has left people somewhat confused as to what the whole podcast is really about.
With the new podcast it’s going to be about helping people escape the paycheck to paycheck trap and taking control of your finances. In fact I already have some great ideas for the podcast but I want to make sure it is exactly what people are really looking for and that is why I’m conducting a survey.
Secondly, my podcast episodes were all over the place. Since I didn’t pick a niche topic I found a lot of my weekly topics going all over the place. One week I might be talking about getting out of debt and the next week I might be covering how to start an online business.
The problem with this is I’m constantly going all over the place with my site rather than staying focused in one specific area.
Finally, I wasn’t focusing on my audience. When I originally started the podcast I didn’t focus in on what my audience wanted at all. I made assumptions on what people wanted based on what I wanted and this is a bad way to go.
This is primarily why I am conducting my survey, because I want to create something that will be the most beneficial to everyone.
Take The Survey Now
To wrap up take a moment and share your thoughts on this survey. You will not only help me out but you will also have input into the direction of this new podcast as well. So take the survey by clicking the link below.
Finally, I should also mention that I am up to 10 people who have already taken the survey and if I get at least a total of 30 people who respond over the next few weeks I will share the result right here on this blog.
