What do we actually track to indicate growth of a podcast?
In short, there’s no one-size-fits-all way of measuring growth. Think of the consumption habits of the audience of a long-form daily news show. Now think about the habits of listeners of an in-depth multi-part series. They aren’t the same.
The best tool I’ve found is tracking 7-day and 30-day downloads per episode. Here’s a chart of how my show grew in 2019, thanks to a data re-tumble from the fine people at Chartable. Yes, I think you should use Chartable like this. No, they didn’t pay me to say that.
Did your podcast grow in 2019? Tell me about it. And while you’re at it, use RateThisPodcast.com/podpont and BuyMeACoffee.com/EvoTerra. How you use those is pretty self-evident. Gotta love obvious domain names, right?
