Choosing a niche for your business (or podcast!) at the outset of the project can be tough – today’s guest recommends specifying that niche later in the process to grow your audience.

Dan Faggella is the founder of Tech Emergence and host of the AI in Industry Podcast. While he initially began his podcast with a broad focus on technology and intelligence, he’s narrowed it down to deliver valuable information to industry leaders who need to know how AI might affect their work.

Getting more specific after building an audience has grown Dan’s reach rather than restricted it. By honing his attention on there topics that his most consistent listeners were interested in, he’s grown a dedicated and interactive group of listeners.

Dan’s strategy might be just what you need to boost the value you’re providing and grow your audience!

Dan Faggello talks about the moment he realized he needed to rebrand his show and speak to a more specific group of people. Using surveys to connect with his listeners, he discovered that the people he needed to influence were decision-makers in business and government roles.

Dan shares how his new niche more accurately reflects the spirit of his show and message, and we discuss how his capacity for monetization increased with this pivot, too.
