Hey fammm! It’s not quite season 11 YET, but we’re coming at you with a little sneaky sneak peek at the behind the scenes of Heart of Dating Podcast!
We’re back from Europe and we’re getting back into it!
We’re LAUNCHING something today you guys!!!! It’s been a long time coming, and we are so excited to announce we are launching officially the Heart of Dating Patreon! If you don’t know what Patreon is, it’s a platform for creators, like podcasters and youtubers to really have support from their people (our HOD FAM!!!!).
As a Patron you’ll be able to see more behind the scenes and you’ll be the ONLY people who will be able to ask us questions that will be featured on the HOD podcast (this is something new we’re doing this season!).
If someone asked Kait, “hey, I want a start a podcast, what do I need to know?” her first response is, “What is your deep WHY?” You have to have this! It’s really hard to get discovered in the podcast world because the market is soooo saturated right now. You really have to have a unique why! The next question is, who is your audience? If you don’t already have a following somewhere else like Instagram, TikTok, or an email list then it is SO hard to get discovered. This is NOT to discourage people, it’s just that a lot of people don’t understand that. The first 90 days of your podcast is the most important so you’ve got to have a really good strategy!
We do a LOT of prep work for every episode. We listen to YOU guys so much because we want to bring content that is going to serve YOU and that you WANT! We monitor our DM’s and our private Facebook group (make sure you go join, Heart of Dating Christian Singles), where you guys ask amazing questions, to see what’s coming up a lot. We see through polls and even through Q&A’s we do on Instagram what is coming up a lot, what themes we’re seeing to best serve you. We never just create an episode because we think it’s going to be cool and fun and we just want to do it, we really think through what’s going to serve you guys. We do a tonn of research to make sure we are prepared especially when it comes Biblical truths and scripture. We talk to trusted mentors and see if they have any guidance for certain topics we’re going to discuss. Sooo, when you guys are participating in any polls or votes we’re doing, when you DM us and ask questions, when you’re asking questions in the Facebook group, it’s actually SO helpful!! With our new Patreon family we’re going to be giving you guys priority to ask us questions to be featured on the podcast but also to give us ideas for future episodes!
