Why Is 1 Million Downloads An Important Milestone?
A million is just a number, like any other. For the host of a podcast entitled “Vegan Recipes For Beef Farmers” a million might be an unachievable goal.
For podcast host Joe Rogan it’s 0.5% of his monthly downloads.
And for the Australian Lure Fishing Podcast it’s the culmination of 25 months of consistent hard work, dedication and commitment. But for ALF host Greg Vinall it’s an important milestone because:
1. Getting to this point meant overcoming his natural tendency to be a private and introverted individual (it’s true, though I’m sure many will find it hard to believe). Greg is now comfortable behind a microphone, but he wasn’t always – and he encourages other introverts to work on being more outgoing, so they can influence positive change in their own sphere.
2. The continued uptake of the audio by listeners, increasing website traffic and use of ALF tools, apps and resources indicate that people find this content helpful. Obviously, that is a key aim of the podcast!
3. Perhaps most importantly, the fact that a podcast promoting sustainable fishing, catch and release and waterway health is so well received is symbolic of a cultural shift in recreational angling. That shift will ensure the future of fishing for decades to come, which inspires Greg to continue helping and promoting these principles.
Here’s to the next million downloads!
