30 Things Listeners can do to Help your Podcast
Random Observation/Comment #741: We can all make someone smile (or help their goals).
Why this List?
While I’m completing my 30 day challenge contacting my favorite podcasts, I’ve decided to do something for the lovely people that responded. Even just a “like” on a DM or response to an email is super kind and rewarding. I think everyone would want a different type of activity so here are some ideas.
Tell my friends about it during holidays and events
Follow you on twitter and like your tweets
Donate to my local NPR station
Join your newsletter
Join your Patreon at the second tier
Rate and review your podcast on iTunes
Write some subreddit posts and respond to threads
Record a question and send it over for an episode
Buy some of your swag. Wear it and then take a photo and tag you.
Donate to a cause of your choice – or maybe even 30 recommended by Josh Gondelman
Help with maintaining your wiki Fandom (or create one if it doesn’t exist)
Be a completion-ist and listen to all your episodes
Like and Comment on your Instagram photos
Create a meme about your podcast or a particular canon trope
Draw some fan art (although I’m not a great artist)
Make a custom t-shirt (maybe with said fan art)
Make a custom magnet or some other swag with said fan art
Help you launch an NFT (I’ve been doing this for pay, but I can help with advising on this if needed)
Buy a cameo message from someone interesting about something relevant (maybe with a cool quote from your podcast)
Start a whole new podcast that comments on your podcasts
Attend the JoCo cruise or some other future conference
Write you a physical postcard
Write a book report about your podcast. I haven’t written a book report in 20 years, but I’ll totally write one
Record my cute daughter saying “I love <insert podcast name here>.” She’s 4 and adorable.
Make one of those cardboard signs with a quote that is relevant to your show and get a picture of me holding it up in a busy NYC street. Might be a meme.
Do an arts and crafts project where I make a Christmas ornament of your podcast and hang it on my tree
Bake a cake in the shape of your podcast logo
I’ll buy and mail you a Christmas present from some random “As Seen On TV” product
Record my own podcast episode about your podcast
Write a list of 30 on the topic of your choice
