In the spirit of “seed and grow” business building, Tod Maffin guests on this episode of Grey Matters to share how he monetizes and promotes his podcast and where it might lead him in the future. If you're planning and/or producing your own podcast, listen in to this week's Grey Matters to get insights for your own show!
Ever start something without a clear goal or outcome in mind and it winds up being fabulous? This week's episode features a podcaster who took an idea and grew it into a vehicle that's driving full speed ahead… even if the destination is unknown!
In this episode of Grey Matters, Steve interviews Tod Maffin – a podcast producer who heralds back to the early days of podcasting and currently hosts a daily (you read that right) podcast called Today in Digital. What started as a bit of a copycat idea and noticing a void in the podcast universe has evolved into a powerful podcast which has a lot of pull in the digital marketing community.
Tod also shares his approach with programmatic advertising for his podcast (for ads that run in his podcast and how he promotes it via other podcasts) as well as an unlikely suspect in his social media promotions: TikTok!
