Sarah Stewart Holland
Content that Creates a Podcast Community
Listener engagement is the oxygen for podcasts; it's how podcasts grow, thrive, and sustain themselves. In this session, Sarah and Beth will share strategies to increase listener engagement, create an ecosystem around a podcast that builds community, and nurture that community in ways that are life-giving for both the podcast and the podcaster. Come prepared to share your ideas and collectively workshop ways that you can intentionally build communities that support those ideas.
