Be patient and consistent
As you see, there is no magic word to get more listeners; it requires hard work. Do not rush yourself; go step by step. When you try to do it all simultaneously, you will get frustrated because you will end up not finishing anything. Take your time and go step by step; anyway, after you finished all these 10 strategies, you probably will need to start over to improve what you have done.
If you get frustrated and think you suck, you’re probably right, but that is ok. Every great radio personality at some point in their careers thinks they suck. Take the example of Howard Stern; he wasn’t successful from the beginning, a lot of people didn’t believe in him, and other people thought he was a terrible radio host. You suck; it’s ok because that means you know you have some weaknesses, and you can work on them to be better. You are on your way, and that is what matters.
Stay focused on creating quality programming and consistently stick with a strategy. The program, or format over time, takes a while to find your audience; you will likely have your own success story. Believe in yourself.
If you feel like you want to quit, try these steps:
