What is Rebranding?

Rebranding is a complete overhaul of your podcast. The only thing you keep in place is the underlying architecture, i.e., the RSS feed, iTunes account, and your fans.

● Survey your audience and ask them what they like about your existing show.

● Consult with a professional.

● Cut out the crap.

● Do a sunset episode.

● Produce a few demo episodes before launching your new show.

What is a Tune-Up?

A tune-up generally happens at about six months in, or whenever your gut tells you your podcast is getting stale. It’s a review to figure out where some adjustments need to be made, to give your listeners the best content you can provide.

● Find someone with an objective ear who knows what they are doing.

● Pay attention to details.

● Consider if marketing is hindering your show.

● Be the best, most entertaining host you can be.
