Have you been wondering if the topic of your show is too narrow, too small, or too niche? Podcasts with incredibly narrow topics often thrive. These “super niche” shows activate a community and compel real engagement in a way that podcasts with a broader audience simply can’t.
In this episode we introduce you to Bailey Bauman, host and creator of the Cloth Diaper Podcast, which has recorded 96 episodes to date. Bailey Bouwman has successfully cultivated an audience of 2.3K subscribers on YouTube and a Podcaster with a VERY ENGAGED audience of 300 listeners or more. With audiences that span from her native Canada to the Far East, Bailey reaches passionate people from all over the globe. Through her podcasting and vlogging efforts, Bailey has become a “go-to” within the cloth diapering community. She is deeply involved in the formation of a new industry association that will likely emerge in 2022 and which seeks to bring cloth diapering back into the mainstream.
Corinna Bellizzi interviews Bailey Bauman as they discuss how and why cultivating an engaged audience is so important, the types of tools they use to market to these audiences, and the importance of “merch” or branded merchandise to cultivate a deeper connection with inspired audience members, guests, and affiliates. Topics discussed include:
- Why having a narrow focus fosters a deeply connected community
- Bailey’s Tips for Podcasters: Just start! Build that first podcast — and then build a sustainable, consistent podcasting schedule
- Branding your show through merchandise (the good, the bad, and the great!)
- Becoming an authority through podcasting
