Is it possible for someone starting a new podcast today to achieve 1 million downloads within the first year? Well this is exactly what I intend to do this year with Business to Freedom Podcast (Click the Link and Subscribe). I decided to keep track of what I do over the coming year to achieve 1 million downloads so you can follow along and do just the same! Without further ado, here is my first report:
These are my all time stats: 189 downloads as of 21 April 2016. I had 7 downloads in my first month, 48 downloads last month, and this month, by April 21, I am sitting at 134. I will have 1 million downloads within 12 months, how am I gonna do it?
Breaking it down
Why 1 million downloads?
I first aim for 1 million in 1 year. I decided to go down to 250k in 2 years because I thought it was more achievable. Then I realized my mistake.
What the hell am I doing? Why aim low when I can aim high? Do I want to be Joe next door with a podcast or Alex Fortin, who hit 1 million downloads in 1 year?
Hell yeah! I will have 1 million downloads in my podcast within 12 months and I will show you exactly how I do it.
1 million is around 100 000 downloads a month. This is quite a big number given that i have practically no downloads right now. It’s actually quite crazy but I love crazy stuff.
I will need to think outside the box to get to this number. If I need to, I will spend thousands of dollars in advertising to get to my goal.
So how can I spend thousands of dollars in advertising? I need to make money from my podcast. This is the No.1 goal. I have a course completed right now that will hit the market next week, but more on this later.
My promise to you, is that I will have 1 millions downloads within the next 12 months.

So why do I podcast?
I love podcasting because it gives me one-on-one coaching with some of the biggest name in the industry for free. All I need is a cold email and I can get a 30-60mins conversation with them. They will share everything with me and the audience.
I only have recorded about 10 episode so far and I am already addicted to getting free coaching. It is really amazing what you can learn from talking with all those people.
The new course coming on the market.
I created a new course called your first 1k online that is currently only for pre-sale and that will launch on March 1st. The course teaches how someone with zero experience online can make his first $1000.
I know it works because that’s exactly what I did 3 years ago. I quit my job, had zero experience when I launched, and I made my first $1000/month within 6 months of launching.
This will take someone with zero experience and show them how to create a business that will transform their life and give them back their time and freedom.
Now if you would do me a favor.

Good luck with your podcasting passion. The best advice that I can give you to achieve the numbers you want…is to do what you are doing, and look for ways to get the “Word of mouth” share.
This is when your listeners become so passionate with your content that they tell friends and family to listen. And this only comes by creating content that is 100% yours and not a mild, diluted version of other shows.
That is the mistake that so many podcasters make at the beginning

Great points, having a strong brand and unique voice is definitively something important.
