NEW YORK — These days, most of the popular podcasts are produced by large companies. But there’s still plenty of room for the little guy,” CBS News reported.
Just ask Ken and Martha Wiseman, retired teachers who are the creators of the RV Navigator podcast, in which they talk about the motorhome lifestyle.
“We get about 15,000 downloads a month, which to me seems great,’ said Ken. “Because we have no marketing, no advertising, no promotional stuff at all – just word of mouth from people who listen all the time.”
Ken said, “We always end our podcast with, ‘We hope to see you in a campground near us.’ And it’s amazing that we do get people seeing us in a campground near them!”
Martha added, “We will run into somebody who maybe takes us out to lunch and talks to us about good things to see and do in their area. And it’s really enriched our lives.”
