The Binge Factor
By Tracy Hazzard
In The Binge Factor podcast for aspiring podcasters and seasoned podcasters, podcast strategist Tracy Hazzard explores whether your podcast has what it takes to create and grow a bingeable podcast – where listeners binge on your every word and get to know, like, and trust you in an accelerated way. The Binge Factor is that strategic key to making your show irresistible, influential, authority-building, and successful. Tracy’s unique gift to the podcasting and branding world is being able to identify that unique binge-able factor - the thing that makes people come back again and again, listen actively, share as raving fans, and buy everything you have to sell.Join Authority Magazine columnist, BuzzFeed contributor, and former Inc.
