Submit your Show to Google Play Music - Google Play Podcasts will be available in 2016 and should quickly grow.

Network


Your network - let your co-workers, associates, friends and family know you're starting a podcast, particularly if it's relevant to a field they work in, or to someone they might know.

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram


Social media - leverage Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social networks to find communities who are interested in what you're talking about. Create social media pages for your Show, talk about your chosen topic then encourage your audience to follow you and join the discussion.

Audience


Ask your audience for referrals - ask them in each episode to leave a review on iTunes (which will help your rankings.) or to share the podcast on their social media channels. 

Forums


Visit relevant forums - find forums for your particular topic and spread the word

Guest appearances

Guest appearances on other podcasts - get in touch with podcasters who talk about similar topics to yours and ask to do a guest appearance. You'd be surprised how often people will say yes!

Public speaking


Attend relevant functions, Meetups and conferences - get your networking shoes on and let people know why your podcast will benefit them

Note: Whatever you do - don't be spammy!
