#4 How to Build Your Platform Quickly Through Podcasting — with John Lee Dumas


Is building a platform a mystery to you?John Lee Dumas

Have you ever wondered how you could build an audience for your book or maybe even your business really quickly?

One great way to build a platform and potentially reach millions of people with your audience is through podcasting. In fact, you’re listening to my voice right now because I decided to build a new audience using podcasting after hearing our guest today speak at the Agents of Change marketing conference earlier this fall.

Today we’re talking with John Lee Dumas, and he’s going to share with us how to use podcasting to build a platform, which is nothing more than an audience of people interested in reading your book and maybe buying your products and services later on. John Lee Dumas is the founder and host of the podcast Entrepreneur On Fire, which was awarded the Best of iTunes 2013 award. Through the Entrepreneur On Fire podcast, he interviews today’s most inspiring and successful entrepreneurs seven days a week, and he’s been featured in Forbes, Inc., and Time magazines.

John has turned Entrepreneur On Fire into a business that generates over $200,000 a month. And if you are blown away by that, he shares all the details about exactly how he does it on his monthly income reports which you can access at EOFire.com/income. John also founded the number one podcasting community in the world, Podcaster’s Paradise, which is a community where over 1400 podcasters learn how to create, grow, and monetize their podcast in a really supportive and caring environment.

Entrepreneur On Fire generates over 850,000 unique listens a month. Imagine what that kind of platform could do for you!
