The Unstarving Musician actively seeks cross promotion opportunities with podcasts, brands and artists.

Starting a cross promotional campaign with the Unstarving Musician

We have found cross promotion to one of the most cost effective ways of promoting mutual audience growth. Here’s how we conduct cross promotional campaigns with other podcasts.

  • We agree on a time frame and number of  cross promotional mentions
  • We provide you with a promo template for the Unstarving Musician
  • You provide us with promo for your podcast
  • We read your promo for a mutually agreed upon number of consecutive Unstarving Musician episodes
  • You read our promo for  a mutually agreed upon number of consecutive episodes of your podcast
  • We email you timestamps for each promo read we did for your podcast
  • You email us timestamps for each promo read you did for the Unstarving Musician

The success of cross promotional efforts is best measured by reviewing our respective stats. Another measure of success is in mentions from new listeners who say they heard about your podcast from the Unstarving Musician.

If you’ve been featured on the Unstarving Musician, it’s a good idea to mention your episode in your cross promotional efforts.

The goal is to gain audience from one another. Ideally, we both have casual fans who might convert to regular followers respectively. In some cases, we’ll have fans that follow both of us (still a win-win).


If our cross promotional program sounds good, here’s what we recommend.

Let’s do cross-promo reads for three upcoming and consecutive dates. If you’re a brand or artist, you’ll propose the method by which we can see your cross promo mention for the Unstarving Musician.

Here’s my suggested cross promo template for the Unstarving Musician. You can and should customize to your voice.

The Unstarving Musician (hosted by Robonzo) features interviews with independent music artists and music industry professionals who share their experience and expertise on recording, touring, getting gigs, the creative process, marketing, and more. It’s a podcast intended to help independent music artists better understand the marketing, business and creative processes that empower us to do more of what we love–make music.

I look forward to growing our respective audiences via cross promotion.
