Here’s the thing: summertime is all about beach days, vacations, and soaking up the sun. People are lounging with a good book or spending quality time with family and friends, which means they might not be listening to podcasts as much.

This seasonal dip happens to a lot of podcasters. It’s just part of the natural ebb and flow. Instead of worrying, use this time to refresh and plan. Maybe brainstorm new content, batch record some episodes, or even take a little break yourself.

Remember, it’s not about the short-term numbers; it’s about the long-term connection you’re building with your audience. They’ll be back, earbuds in hand, ready to dive into your amazing content before you know it.

So, embrace the summer vibes, enjoy a little downtime, and know that you’re right on track.

Today, you'll learn:

  • Why downloads plummet in July
  • How to prepare yourself and your team
  • What you can do to make the month a success

Listen in and apply these tips and tricks to your business right now! You literally can not afford to wait another minute.
