3 Reasons This Podcast Finder is the Best

According to Oberlo, there are currently 850,000 active podcasts and over 30 million podcast episodes.

It’s important to mention an active podcast is one that has released a new episode in the last 90 days. If a podcast has not, it is considered inactive.

The problem with finding podcasts is that all of those inactive podcasts are still able to be found in podcasting apps like Apple, Stitcher, Google, Spotify, etc.

This is one reason Podcast Clout does not use AI to update its database. If it did, it would pick up those hundreds of thousands of inactive podcasts. (Yes, there are that many.)

It’s very important to use a podcast finder like Podcast Clout because more than half of all US consumers above the age of 12 listen to podcasts.

Nearly three out of every four podcast listeners in the US say they tune in to learn new things. (I am one of them!)


How Podcast Clout works

Here are some other cool facts about podcasts according to Oberlo:

  1. 32 percent of Americans listen to podcasts on a monthly basis.
  2. More than half of listeners are at least somewhat more likely to consider buying from a brand after hearing its advertisement on a podcast. 
  3. Podcast advertising revenues are expected to surpass $1 billion in 2021. (Holy smokes!)
  4. 82.4 percent of podcast listeners spend more than seven hours a week listening to podcasts.
  5. The average weekly podcast listener subscribes to an average of six shows and listens to seven shows per week.

3 Reasons This Podcast Finder is the Best

1. We only give you the data you want and need

There is a lot of data out there.

We don’t want to give you all of it because you don’t want or need all of it.

We only want to give you the best data as it relates to finding podcasts to pitch to be a guest.

Podcast Clout was not created for you to find podcasts to listen to or to find podcasts to advertise on. Yes, it can be used for those things, but that’s not the reason it was developed.

It was developed by a publicist for other publicists to sift through the hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there, find currently popular ones, and pitch them to be a guest on the show. 

Again, the information in Podcast Clout is specific to pitching as a guest. If a podcast in the database does not accept guests, the information with that particular podcast will help you pull the trigger on advertising opportunities if it’s a fit.

2. We update our database manually

A lot of the information you need to pitch to be a guest on a podcast is hard to find.

Our team scours the internet looking at the podcast apps, the podcaster’s website, the production company’s website, the podcast host’s social media, etc. 

To ensure the information we are entering in our podcast finder is correct, we copy and paste everything pertinent to the database so you don’t need to spend your time searching in all of the places the Podcast Clout team does. It’s also exactly in the podcaster’s words.

3. We save you hours in research and admin work

Not only are we sharing all of the information we gather, but we are updating it all three times a week.

Podcasts are always entering the top of the charts and going inactive, so it’s important to update Podcast Clout on a regular basis. This saves you hours in research and admin work and you know you’re getting the most timely information.

There is no reason for you to constantly check which podcasts are in the top 250 of a category in Apply podcasts. We do that work for you and share information that is not in the app or available on any other database.
