Show Notes Chapter Markers

The audience is usually front and center on our minds when we’re recording our podcast but podcasting is SO much more than just recording audio for our listeners! It’s about creating genuine connections with people that we then GET to share with our listeners.  Joe Dimino, who has been podcasting for over a decade, is here to talk about his experiences with creating meaningful conversations with folks across his podcast and radio show. This week, episode 117 of Listeners to Leads is about the power of creating authentic connection as a podcast host! 

Joe Dimino has been writing & creating in various capacities since his college days at the University of Missouri-Kansas City around 1993. If you are keeping score, that would be about 29 years +. It all began at UMKCs University News as a Sports Writer with the esteemed John Beaudoin and turned into a myriad of expressive avenues, including poetry. Inventing poems, art, video & audio has always been a therapeutic avenue of expression.

In this episode of Listeners to Leads, Joe Dimino shares the importance of being enthusiastic about your podcast and actionable steps you can take right now to have meaningful conversations with guests to share with your audience. 

Joe and I also chat about the following: 

  • How to attract your first guests to your show.
  • The connectivity humans want with one another and how podcasting provides it.
  • Unenthusiastic guests will negatively impact the energy of your show and you DON’T have to promote them.
  • Podcasting is about connecting with people, not just the downloads.

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on turning your podcast listeners into leads and to hear even more about the points outlined above. Thank you for listening!
