What kind of audience is best for DAP creators?

Dial-a-Podcast: Reaching the Unreachable Audiences

In today's fast-paced digital world, podcasts and online audio (like sermons) have become a staple of modern entertainment and information sharing, catering to virtually every interest under the sun. However, there's a significant portion of the worldwide audience that remains untapped, primarily due to technological barriers.

For podcast creators who are trying to reach specific audiences, including those in the armed forces, those living in rural areas (e.g. homesteaders), or even those who drive older vehicles, it can be challenging to make content accessible. For religious leaders, the struggle lies in reaching congregants seeking spiritual nourishment who cannot attend services in person, whether due to mobility issues, health concerns, or geographical distance.

That's where Dial-a-Podcast shines, bridging the gap between content creators and their 'missing audience.'

Dial-a-Podcast also democratizes access to a plethora of content, from news, educational material and self-help guides, to storytelling and comedy. This inclusivity ensures that knowledge and entertainment are not limited by one's technological capabilities or access, fostering a more informed and connected world.

The Elderly

One of the most significant audiences that benefit from Dial-a-Podcast services is the elderly. Many older adults (think: Boomers and older) may not be comfortable with or have access to modern streaming platforms. However, they are well-acquainted with traditional telephones. Dial-a-Podcast allows them to access sermons, spiritual teachings, and various other content types easily, ensuring they remain connected with their community and interests without being forced to navigate complex digital landscapes.

Individuals Without Internet Access

In many parts of the world, and even in rural or under-served urban areas, internet access is not always a given, and sometimes it's a personal choice not to pay for it. In other areas, data coverage may be spotty, causing our fancy smartphones to be limited to their primary use, unless the owner is connected to WiFi. For individuals in these regions, online streaming or downloading podcasts isn't an option. Creators who leverage Dial-a-Podcast can better reach these folks, and offer them a wide range of content from educational materials to entertainment, accessible through a simple phone call.

Limited Data Plans

Even for those with internet access, limited data plans can be a barrier to streaming or downloading content. Pay-as-you-go plans are still very much a reality in lower income markets, and Dial-a-Podcast services are a boon for this audience. Calling in allows them to listen to their favorite podcasts and messages without worrying about exhausting their data limits. This aspect is particularly beneficial for people who rely on their mobile phones for internet access.

Military Personnel Overseas

For military members stationed overseas, staying connected with home can be challenging, especially in locations with restricted internet access. When a creator signs up for a global number, Dial-a-Podcast allows deployed service members to listen to content from home, including religious services, news, and entertainment, helping bridge the distance and providing a comforting sense of normalcy.

Unique Situations: Nursing Homes and Pandemics

We believe that an argument can be made for Dial-a-Podcast shining in unique situations such as nursing or assisted living homes, where residents may have limited access to technology or the internet. In fact, facility administrators can even help residents to call in to their favorite program from a landline without worrying about them leveraging an unfamiliar device, or broadcast call-in content over their speaker system. During the pandemic, when isolation became a significant issue, Dial-a-Podcast offered a lifeline, providing entertainment, spiritual comfort, and news updates, all without the need for internet access or a learning curve.


Content creators and religious leaders who leverage Dial-a-Podcast have a unique opportunity to cater to diverse and often overlooked audiences, breaking down barriers and ensuring that valuable content reaches everyone, regardless of their situation. By understanding and meeting the unique needs of these segments, creators can expand their reach and impact, making a meaningful difference in the lives of their listeners.
