Thanks For Listening …

by Erik K. Johnson

Thanks for listening. I appreciate the help you give me.

It is such an easy way to strengthen your relationship with your audience. They have given you something they can never get back. That is their time.

Show your appreciation. A simple thank you will go a long way with your listener. If they know you are honestly grateful for their time, the chance they will listen again goes way up.

It must be honest and authentic. You can’t thank them in a gas-station-attendant-I’ll-never-see-you-again kind of way. You must deliver it from the heart. It should be the kind of thank you that you would give a stranger who stopped to help when you ran out of gas

Your listener is your lifeblood. Without your listener you have no podcast. She has many, many choices when allocating her time. Let her know you appreciate her for spending her time with you.

… And thanks for listening.  You’ve done a ton for me just by being here.
