Warning! This episode contains some f-bombs and other well placed word bombs - but they’re worth it.
Threads, the brand new "chat app" and Twitter alternative from Meta, aka Facebook, aka Instagram, aka Zuckerberg, launched last week and has already amassed almost 100 million users.
Within three days, I saw a podcast "guru" claiming to know how to use Threads to grow your podcast and, sure enough, the content they published about it was shockingly awful.
So, how do you use Threads to grow your podcast audience?
The truth is that, right now, the algorithm is still all over the place and there are features (such as a "following only" feed) still missing. Does this mean that you can't use Threads to grow your podcast? No. Well, sort of no. In fact, Threads is, right now, just another tool to use in order to genuinely "social network" and that is SO very different to "promoting your sh*t".
Let's have a frank chat about how to use Instagram Threads to grow your podcast, then.
