SPI 802: A Reaction to ConvertKit's BOLD Business Moves

SPI 802: A Reaction to ConvertKit's BOLD Business Moves

#802 The creator economy is bigger than ever but also more complex than it used to be. That said, this ConvertKit update is the perfect example of a brand continuing to evolve and keep up with out needs. As a long-time user and advisor for the company, I'm excited to see what's next! You might have heard, but ConvertKit is rebranding to Kit. This is more than just a name change, though. They're launching an app store to supercharge how we use their platform. Kit will also come with next-level analytics and performance improvements. Of course, ConvertKit's Creator Network is also a massive part of this announcement. This is the number one tool I use to grow my Unstuck newsletter and how I get hundreds of new subscribers daily. But that's not all. ConvertKit is introducing a free tier for newsletters with up to ten thousand subscribers. Go to SmartPassiveIncome.com/convertkit to sign up!

SPI 801: How to Win at Podcasting in 2024 with Alban Brooke of Buzzsprout

#801 With data showing there are over four million podcasts out there, does it still make sense to start your own show? Well, it also turns out there are only about four hundred thousand podcasts regularly publishing new episodes. If you niche down, there might be no one talking about the topic you'd like to cover! So how do you launch a show around your interests and attract an audience of engaged listeners? Today's guest, Alban Brooke, is here to uncover the data and reveal the best strategies for modern podcasters. We discuss the easiest way to use video to promote your show, tapping into communities to reach fully-formed audiences, and why typical interview podcasts are in trouble. Alban is the Head of Marketing at Buzzsprout, one of the top podcast hosting companies. We can learn a lot from the information he has access to, so listen in!

SPI 800: Time Is Accelerating (And This Is How I Feel)

#800 People know me for the online business advice, but I don't often talk about what happens at home. That said, balancing work and family life is crucial for sustainable success as an entrepreneur. For this milestone episode, I want to offer a glimpse at the Flynn household and my role as a father and husband. Like me, I know many in the Smart Passive Income Podcast audience are parents. That's why I think you'll resonate with what I share as you listen in on today's session! My son Keoni is now a high schooler, while my daughter Kailani is going into middle school. I'm excited to see my kids grow and flourish, but how have these years gone by so fast? Tune in for my 800th episode as I explore the importance of slowing down, appreciating the time you have, and finding and creating special moments with your loved ones!
