In this episode of the Idea Climbing™ podcast I interview successful entrepreneur James Carbary about what he calls “Content-Based Networking” and how he uses it to grow his business.

When many people start a podcast they’re focused on the number of downloads. Yes, that’s important BUT there’s a much more valuable opportunity at hand. Your podcast can be a way to build your business. You need to know who your target market is for your clients and also referral sources. Get clear about those people and then invite THEM to be guests on your podcast. That’s a great way to start or foster relationships.

When you do that you’re leveraging the relationships with your guests and driving business results, not focusing primarily on downloads.

This also works when you’re interviewing people for videos and written content.

We discuss in detail how you can easily and successfully kick of your own Content-Based Networking campaign!
