Let’s see.
As a yearly tradition though, we like to see which topics struck a chord most with our audience. So, here, we present our top 10 most-downloaded titles. I wonder if your favorites made the list. You can certainly tune in and find out.
10. 594 – Play Your Way To Success
Starting off at number 10. The tenth most popular episode was episode 594, Play Your Way To Success. “All work and no play…” You know how it goes. Energetic Education’s Dale Sidebottom is an advocate for injecting regular play into your routine. Just a few minutes each day of fun, he maintains, can have far-reaching positive effects on your health, your work and your relationships.
9. 592 – 0-40,000 Downloads Per Month – A Property Podcast Case Study With Tyrone Shum
At number nine, episode 592, Zero to Forty Thousand Downloads Per Month – A Property Podcast Case Study with Tyrone Shum. During the first few months of Tyrone Shum’s podcast, PropertyInvestory, it was getting 20 to 30 downloads an episode. Just a year later, the show is getting 40,000 downloads a month. Learn how dogged persistence and SuperFastBusiness contributed to this unforeseen success.

In number eight, episode 602, Go Broad then Deep, A super Wide Ranging Discussion on Everything Important with Matt Wolfe and Joe Fier from Evergreen Profits. SuperFastBusiness welcomes back Evergreen Profits’ Joe and Matt to talk about business and life, and what’s working, and what’s new, what lessons were learned, and much more. I love these guys and I’ve had them back a few times. And we broadcast that show on their podcast as well. And it actually made the top 10 for Evergreen Profits. So that was really nice to see them appearing in this one.
7. 587 – 7 Ways To Improve Your Membership (Case Study)
At number seven, 587 – Seven Ways to Improve Your Membership. It was a case study. SJ Meeson joined SuperFastBusiness two years ago without attracting much notice. In the background, she quietly absorbed and implemented the community’s trainings, until she had built a membership influencing about 30,000 women globally. Her story is one worth listening to.
6. 589 – How To Use Challenge Marketing To Grow Your Email List And Make Sales With Zach Spuckler
In position six was episode 589 – How to Use Challenge Marketing to Grow Your Email List and Make Sales with Zach Spuckler. Never heard of challenge marketing? Well, Zach Spuckler is an expert in this strategy, and in our 589th episode, he shares his knowhow – what it is, how it works, and how you can put together a challenge marketing campaign of your own. And I’m pretty excited that we’ll be seeing this topic at SuperFastBusiness Live in April in Sydney, 2019. I hope you can grab a ticket for that. Angela Henderson is going to be talking on that exact topic.
5. 586 – How To Engage Your Community – Part 2
In number five was episode 586 – How to Engage Your Community – Part Two. In the second episode of the two-part series with community strategist Diana Tower and paid membership owner, me, James Schramko, we discussed what we know about community health, numbers, churn prevention and maintaining that all-important engagement. Now, Diana was part of a multi-part series. This was the episode that had the most downloads. She is absolutely crazy, in a good way, and she said this episode actually influenced her take on Facebook groups. So that was really nice to hear after this episode.
4. 588 – Behind The Scenes With Ryan Levesque On The Journey From 7 To 8 Figures Revenue
In position number four, episode 588 – Behind the Scenes with Ryan Levesque on the Journey from Seven to Eight Figures Revenue. What’s behind the transition from a million-dollar business to a $10-million-a-year company? Ryan Levesque of ASK fame reveals his story and the many lessons you can apply from his journey. And I got a front row seat to that because I was coaching Ryan for many years. And I’m also excited to see his new book coming out, which we’ll probably talk about on a later episode.
3. 596 – The 1-Page Marketing Plan With Allan Dib
In position number three was episode 596 – The One-Page Marketing Plan With Allan Dib. A complete marketing strategy laid out in a single-page document. Entrepreneur Allan Dib became a bestselling author when he placed his innovative idea into writing. And by bestseller, I mean he’s dominating the marketing category of Amazon. In episode 596, we delved into his book and the principles of its creation. And Allan’s actually speaking at SuperFastBusiness Live talking about how to publish a bestselling book. Now, I know how many books and audibles he sold just in November 2018, and it’s mind blowing. I can’t wait til he shares more details on that.
2. 590 – The Top Conversion Tips After 1.5 Billion Dollars In Sales And Retention Tips With Scott Desgrosseilliers From Wicked Reports
In the top two episodes was episode 590 – The Top Conversion Tips After 1.5 Billion Dollars In Sales And Retention Tips With Scott Desgrosseilliers From Wicked Reports. Don’t attempt to spell that name folks. And I’m not talking about Wicked. Wicked Reports’ Scott Desgrosseilliers is an expert in conversions, and he has over 1.5 billion dollars in sales to prove it. Tune in as he shares his best tips and insights on sales attribution, marketing, customer retention and more. I’ve been using Wicked Reports to transform my understanding of how sales are made at SuperFastBusiness, and it is very revealing. It’s like having X-ray and you just cast it over your Analytics and you can see exactly what happened. In November 2018, I actually spent a little bit of money on Facebook and I had an absolutely amazing return on investment. And I could see exactly which campaigns worked.
1. 579 – Should You Build A Business Around Yourself With Chris Ducker?
And the number one top episode for 2018 in terms of downloads was episode 579 – Should You Build A Business Around Yourself With Chris Ducker? Do you make yourself and your persona the basis of a business, or do you keep your name completely out of it? Chris Ducker has done both, and quite successfully. In our number one downloaded episode of the year, he talks from experience on this fascinating topic. Chris is a great podcast guest. He’s done plenty of interviews with the best of the best like Gary Vee. He puts on a terrific event. It was a pleasure to host that podcast. And it’s not really a surprise that he took the top spot because he’s very popular with my audience as well.
