117: Build Community Around Your Podcast, with Bella Vasta

https://podcastfasttrack.com/

It’s not just a good idea to build community around your podcast - it’s a GREAT idea.

It’s just about the only way to get to know your audience, understand their needs, and build trust on a personal level. So I wanted to bring someone to you who is a PRO at doing that through tools that any of us can use.

Meet Bella Vasta.

Bella is a pet groomer by trade, but she’s built some amazing community and interaction within her industry through Facebook Groups and I know that what she’s done will be of immense value to those of us who are willing to apply it to our own situation. Bella - thanks for sharing.

Let the value bombs DROP!
