Talk to friends in your social, political, or religious groups, and tell them in improvement where and when you’ll be on. If a group has your ideal listener, visit it!

Some Internet Radio Stations will run teasers (short radio ads promoting your show) in improvement of your new show, characterize your profile and picture on a show great number page, and link to your website. What works really depends on your audience – just ask yourself where your audience gets information and reads ads!
