“About 50% of podcasters who start will quit when they hit episode seven,” he says. “Then 50% of those remaining will quit by the time they hit episode 23. If they make it beyond the 25-episode show mark, they have a pretty good chance of lasting two years.”

Our next goal: get to episode 26!

From the list:
#9. Focus will shift from engagement to goal-based outcomes

“Over the last twelve months, we’ve seen marketers start to focus away from traditional publisher-centric metrics (page views, uniques, likes) to engagement metrics (attention minutes!). But next year we will see another significant shift to goal-based metrics. For most marketers, this means measuring conversions. Whether it’s a lead capture or signing up for sweepstakes/emails/coupons, conversion-based content marketing will get us closer to the holy grail of real marketing ROI; the ones that can measure multi-touch attribution will win.”
