If you are thinking of starting a podcast to create weekly original content in your business but unsure if you are ready for the commitment? Let me introduce to you private podcast audio feeds. Discover a unique and accessible alternative to traditional podcasting, with private audio feeds.
Platforms for Content Creation
Podcasting platforms allow entrepreneurs to create and distribute their content effectively, reaching a wider audience and establishing themselves as experts in their industry. From traditional podcasts to the use of private audio feeds, creators can tailor the approach that suits their specific needs and objectives. By exploring the available options, businesses can determine the best platform to deliver content that informs, entertains, and fosters connections with listeners. Diving into the world of private audio can serve as an effective way to test the waters before fully committing to public podcasts, making this approach more accessible for those looking to venture into the realm of audio content creation.
What are Private Podcast Audio Feeds?
Private audio feeds offer an alternative approach to traditional podcasts, allowing creators to deliver exclusive content to a select audience. These feeds are customisable. From the user end a private podcast looks, feels and operates just like a public feed. From the host’s perspective, things are a lot more interesting!
Private podcasts use individual access links that are tied to specific email addresses. This means that you control who listens and for how long. Think of the unique ways you can create a sense of urgency around a new offer or topic.
Private feeds also give you access to more data because of this unique RSS feed. Because of this RSS feed, you are able to monitor and analyze when and how much your listener is consuming your content. That’s the kind of data that can influence your overall content strategy to result in higher conversion rates!
Private audio can be used in a variety of ways in your business.

Where to Start?
Let’s talk about how you can set yourself up for success with this 3-Part Framework.
- Develop a STRATEGY driven audio asset that builds your brand. Create valuable content with a clear Call To Action in every episode.
- Implementation Phase – Record your episodes (I love to encourage my clients to batch record!) and produce. I highly recommend you create a good workflow in your favourite project management system (ClickUp, Asana, etc.). This way you can rinse and repeat the steps to build out your next private podcast!
- Market – Create excitement around your podcast. Knowing who your ideal audience is and how to attract them to YOUR show!
- Launch phase – if you guild it, they will come, is NOT true!
- Long term growth phase – continue attracting new leads.
Leverage Audio in Your Business
Incorporating audio content into a business strategy serves as a powerful tool to increase visibility, brand building and audience engagement. I believe that creators can and should experiment to refine their strategies. Podcasting is an amazing way to foster relationships, build connections with your listeners and dream clients. I encourage you to be creative and think outside of the box when it comes to your content delivery.
