April 05, 2020

In episode #1343, we compare making content for specialist versus generalist audiences. Big brands have the budgets and other resources to do well with generalist content, but for smaller companies, it is best to specialize and focus on a very specific market. Tune in to hear how you can also increase your revenue through subscriptions by opting for content that speaks to a niche audience.
