Audioburst's Creators Premium Helps Podcasters Take Their Marketing Campaigns To The Next Level
"Z. Premium version that were now released allowed the podcasters to go a little bit to the next level of building such marketing campaigns for them with two phases. A thinking it. The first is that we've allowed. Obviously you better transcription so highly accurate. The more premium subscription engine to it with better tagging and q. It's because of that. But also some special features of collaboration with multiple uses within one account multiple shows within one account. So you can work on with your teammate and on multiple shows if you have them within a single simple interface which at the the coolest feature that i like in that upgrade for whoever chooses the premium version of ours is what we call the highlights. Reel so while prior to that. We only shirt single bursts and allowed people to get a short snippet from your show. Now we let put castres pick and choose multiple moments from either that or multiple episodes within that show or multiple episodes for multiple shows. That together can create a teaser of short clips. One after the other that will give i think. More enticing teaser. Like approach a promotion of the podcast and will allow them to get more. Listen isn't promote that. It's much more engaging experience for listeners to feel the true nature of your podcast answering think the biggest challenging audio that you can't scheme audio breath creating that highlights reel through audience. Creators allows you to have your podcast business card shared multiple different places to expose the transcription part of that. You know where the bursts you have the audio as well as the text does that taxed help with search engines. And that kind of thing. Seo yes of course. So first of foremost just having your transcript attached to your audio content always exposes your content to search engines whether it'll be audio burst or where there will be a google and the others on the web. So that's always recommended to attach either full transcript. The transcript of the burst itself next to the burst. So that definitely think will expose and helping seo and when it comes to better quality and adding the tags and the keywords that you get from the bursted i would recommend adding them as well as a separate entity just so it would be even more highlighted than just pure transcript will improve the search ability over content
How to Amplify Your Brand When Live Streaming with Joie Gharrity
"Joey why is branding important for business. How can i maybe relate that into live streaming for their business as an example. Right so branding is really the heartbeat to any business professional or personal. And i wanna say this to people to out there even if you're working in j. o. B. should really be working on your professional brand. It's a way where people can hook into you out there. Human beings don't like to feel dumb and they don't like to sound and so a lot of times i'll have clan say will no one's talking about me because they don't know how to talk about you. There's nothing to hook into yet. No one wants to say oh judas. Branding is boring. Who cares about that right but when you create a very deep-rooted emotionally connected brand out. There is that i tell people i said you want to lead with your actual heartbe so my heartbeat about visibility influence. I don't care if anyone. I i could care less. If anyone knows. I do branding. Who cares. That's not the point. But i do care that everyone in. There's like hey do you need some more visit billion florence. Joe is the one to go to it something that they can hook into. So i'm just asking the audience members out there. I'm saying sit back with your brand for a second and even if you're streaming if you have a content overall arching content umbrella of what you're streaming about but you don't have a heartbeat where people can hook into it. It can fall flat grio but fine the heartbeat. Not that output from the heartbeat. I am from that. Harvey then other people marketplace can sing. Your song was fantastic. So can't let so speaking sigmund branding. So can you share. Maybe three ways that someone can amplify their brand when they are live streaming. I mean now that the tools are readily available. There's software out there. Music started with just your computer or your smartphone What are some ways that somebody can amplify that brand when they are live streaming without kind of you know just being overly. What's the word i'm looking for. Just just overly complex like are there are some couple ways. You can think people. Yeah i mean first of all. I say that everyone be generous right. Anyone can google anything at this point right. So in order to become the main staple or the go-to influence or near field share. Generously your expertise out there. Don't who back right because that's how people are emotionally connected with you like right now. I just shared one of my top rantings veggies. I didn't hold onto that. I want i. If it was to me. I would have everyone globally spotlight each other right because that is how passionate i am about that right however would also was happening guys. Is that there is not. There's rarely a time that anyone in the marketplace that knows me that's emotionally connected with my brand when they see spotlight. They're not thinking about the right. So generously share your expertise. Make sure that the conversation comes along with some tangible value. Philosophies are great during the roman times when everyone's standing in there and being philosophers on the great steps right but in today's marketplace we people need tangible 's so give people real step-by-step tangible this will help. Elevate your yours that not just that. But you're branding in general because people then will have a reason to show up all the time for you. Because they're like well an joe is gonna give me a tangible so i know i'm gonna walk away with value with real value and then always surrounded always always bubble it and really really good storytelling right. I also believed to two things. Everyone should become an inertial speaker. Guys if you're not win yet become one right and also to everyone should become another it will. It's it's it's just such a tipping point because what it does is it formulates inside of you like wow. My stories are powerful and empowering and sharing. That story is a way you entertain your entertaining but you teaching at the same time right. That's why everyone was around the campfires. Since the beginning of time right is that they were just they were just teaching through storytelling. That's all they were doing. So if you've meyer anyone out there in general there's people that you meyer watch their storytelling techniques.

How to get the best results with Magic Mastering
"Things that you still want to do. When you're editing your podcast episode to get the best results. I talked about the three things you should continue to do. Even if you start using magic mastering the first thing is get a really clear audio recording as greatest magic mastering is it is not a miracle worker and so if you are recording in a super echoey environments or your guest is recording with their phone and they have a bad connection or you have a lot of cross talk and microphone bleeds. You can hear yourself in. Your co hosts microphone magic. Mastering cannot magically fix that as great as it is doing other things magically so you want to get a really clean recording for your podcast episode that means recording every single person on their own track in your editing software. It means recording and a really solid environment where you're going to reduce echo and it's going to sound really crisp really clear and that means using proper technique where you're about four finger. Widths away from your microphone. The second thing you want to do is get your volume levels in the ballpark of where they need to be. So a really nice level and then your co host recorded a little bit louder than you and your guests was really quiet. Then you want adjust those so they're all about the same. You don't have to get them perfect. But you do. Want to get in the ballpark. And the last thing that you want to do is remove any unwanted. Sounds that you don't want to make it into your podcast episode. Now we're not talking about you. Know air conditioning. Units or low background noise. That's something magic master can take care of and we'll get to that in a second but i'm talking about dogs barking talking about kids screaming. Someone has a coughing fit in the middle of the interview. Those are the kind of things that you want to remove from your podcast episode before you upload it to basra and use magic mastering so now. Let's talk about the things you no longer have to do. Once you start using magic. Mastering and the first one is levelling magic. Mastering applies adaptive leveling to your entire podcast episode. So it sounds like everyone's recording at the same volume all the time and this really is a step beyond a regular normalization effect which analyzes the entire audio clip and then does one major adjustment to the whole file adaptive leveling split your podcast episode up into little chunks and applies normalization and leveling effects. Along the way so that even if someone is loud one point soft at another point magic. Mastering we'll take care of that. The second thing you longer have to worry about is background noise and hum reduction so if there's a fan going on the back of your room when you're recording your episode and you notice it gets picked up in your microphone magic. Mastering will take care of that. If your neighbor two doors down is mowing the lawn and you can kind of hear it in the background. You don't have to take care of that and your editing software magic. Mastering will do that for you. And if you have an n line which means that you have a poorly shielded. Xlr cable or usb cable and you have this really nasty In the background of your audio recordings matching mastering. Take care of that too. So those are notoriously difficult to get rid of in your podcast. Editing software use noise gates. You gotta use plug ins all this kind of stuff magic. Mastering will do that. And then the last thing that you no longer have to worry about is loudness targeting.

Dane did for food That's what what kind of the the marker is for what we're trying to do with with sound and we certainly talk occasionally about music Allbeit in a slightly different way than what a normal music journalist would do But we're really trying to extract these just this this joyous sense that brings us that any of us who have our sense of hearing that we can all share together and it is the winner of the two thousand nineteen webby people's voice award for best original music on the two thousand twenty webby award for science and education as well as the people's voice award for science and education and none of those trophies are behind you right now you'll see any display is that is that why there i mean my goodness would i ever get a nice tweet about mind and i wanna frame it and put it on the wall behind you. Can't you're webbie's those are yeah. There's there's three it looks like to but there's one snuck behind. They're they're beautiful. Look at those guys. They're very springy. Sound kind of goes delillo eleven. Oh that's good that the that they make a sound. That of course can't beautiful and what is so. What is the significance of the title of twenty thousand hertz. For people that have limited knowledge of sound win where kids at least we can generally here all the way. Up to twenty thousand hertz. And as we get older we hear up to nineteen thousand hertz and then eighteen thousand and seventeen thousand than sixteen and it's totally normal but the but the significance of the name is The upper reaches of human hearing and for for those fortunate Enough to be able to hear things. What are some sounds at those highs highs in the low lows that exist in nature. I guess maybe On the low frequency. You can go really low with something like a Like a wind turbine. That's kind of going Cocoa so that's gonna push air because because basically sound works just by pushing and contracting On air and then at the upper reaches more like brilliance and sparkle. I think that the difference would be maybe something like a splat rolled splash. Cymbal might sound a little bit more brilliant and bright to To a young person versus someone who's in their fifties or sixties animal On earth here's how like the highest to the highest frequency or. I don't know that number that we're working on a show right now where he just literally. Yesterday i recorded and Said that dogs can hear up to. I believe it was one hundred. Forty thousand hertz. Now take that with a grain of salt because we haven't fully fact check the show which we always do but one hundred and forty thousand hertz. That's an that is unbelievable to even think about. Wow how high that would go. But that's why dog whistles. Work and dogs can here. We can't But yeah they. They're they're hearing goes goes way way up and things like there's other animals like Whales or elephants that can hear lower and they communicate with lower Rumbles but really. What's cool about sound us. Humans is that Our ears these frequencies that we here are all products of our natural environment so our ears are so incredibly tuned to this particular spot in the universe until your podcast covers everything that we can hear and maybe a little bit beyond. Maybe what dogs can here too. Yeah we didn't episode on ultrasonic sounds in the past where people can use these high pitched frequencies to a couple of weird things like they can Make your This is really freaky. But they can make your cell phones Pickup a tone If you have an app on it and it can communicate and frequencies that we can't really perceive to make your phone kind of communicate with each other and other things is like in In in some places they might put these really high pitched frequencies like at a gas station outside where people were young people might loiter and they might just blast us this this
Playing Musical Instruments On Live Streams with Aaron Short
"For example you can sometimes get garbled. The insurance might not come through very clear in also. Obviously there's that whole copyright thing so gem is fantastic. Have new back. What does this episode. I think forty four right. Four forty four double four so it's We've almost were approaching a years worth of content is some people would say. You can listen to an episode every week and Take your whole year but you know we're happy if you listen to quicker than that but yeah excited to to happen. This conversation with aaron because You know music. I think is a big part of everyone's lives and and it's really been a challenge. I think especially These last few months because musicians have been like. Hey how do i get my music out there. And they wanna live stream it they wanna put it on things and the challenge. Sometimes a lot of these microphones and things if they're not used to it. Don't translate well onto live video so yeah really Looking forward to talking to air about this since he's definitely an expert in that area. I'm glad we're having him on. Because here's the thing we were talking about this beforehand and you know it's the fact that when people try to livestream just take the equipment that they have which which is great taking the equipment you have built in mike for example yet by a microphone. That happens to come up on amazon search. And the thing is you have to remember. There are various types of microphones. I know jim. We talked with marc bulger. About different types of microphones on a previous episode. And you know we compared different ones. We didn't really go into the nuances of voice versus audio. So figured hey. Why don't we have aaron. Come on because you know what he knows this and so air. It's fantastic having you join us for episode. Forty four of the launcher live. Podcast awesome. thanks. I appreciate it. Yeah erin tell tell us about yourself. How did you get started with live streaming being that. You're a musician. It just seemed. I don't know if i'd say it's odd but not something that you would expect all the time. Well it's an interesting story. Because i moved to new york ten years ago and i've been playing in bars and restaurants and in weddings almost every day since then so i'm was a real live performer. And then i saw the youtube thing kicking in a few years later. And i had the ability then to get a camera like this which is obviously very important and i started. I started pushing the youtube channel more. I actually was pushing the channel at the live gigs. It was weird. So at my live gigs. Repeal would come up to the end i give them a card with the youtube channel address on building out channel in real life. That was kind of a weird way of doing it. I thought it was cool. It was working and then a few of my friends going live not too many of them so it was in my mind to go live. But i just didn't ever think of something i would do. And then of course. We had the lockdown. So what did all the musicians including myself do when everything shot. Then what do we do. We just jumped on. Start playing songs right so i was. I was really lucky. Because i had this camera i had this room. I had the interface. Everything most things i needed just to get going so i started going straight away with that and then i also started doing interviews like this as well with some key. The music industry figures from the from martin guitar. Those companies nice. So that was. That was a learning curve. I had to learn that. I actually use different different. Set up for that and i do for my concerts so i had to. I had to learn how to do. The interviews had talked clearly still working on but had to run the show. You're doing today. And all the software i started with. Ob s and skype and skype is terrible for performance. Okay for talking not good for performance. Bs is great because it's free but it's not the most visually appealing piece of software. So i quickly got into cam live. Which is a really great program getting better all the time and they now have an interview feature where you can't play together but you can play separately and the audio is the same quality on both sides so that's so it's been it's been an evolution show and i'm still learning this now when you do a livestream you've got to be visual work on the sand you've got to work on right. Having said that. I do feel like i see a lot of professional musicians. Going live with just their phone and i do believe that the content as all of this stuff content is key. If you've got great songs great seeing a great guitar player and you just go live with your phone. I think that's okay but with a few improvements a microphone the right camera. You can really raise your your level very very easily for a few hundred bucks so i do think people should be doing that by as always the content is.
I Almost Lost My Podcast
"In on that there it is the oh you gotta love him. The coroner podcast himself. Mr darren day talk about a great story. If you want to read more about darren go profit from your podcast. He's one of the guys i talked to. Darren just wanted to talk about coroner stuff. he's a coroner and now the guy is just crushing. It teaching people how to be coroners in is just the feeling. Darren can't hear me all right. Hey i just. I don't mean to your guys very much so listen on the other side but had time to date. I'm wanted to japan. And again. I wanted to ask about vox her. I'm thinking about using boxer for my membership. And i don't know if anybody had experience with boxer. I i've heard dave talk about som- but i wanna just open it up to the members in the membership community then again. How much is that going to take up my time. People vaccine me all the time experience. Yeah my experience was. Lipson started a boxer. And i'm not sure how i think elsie created a group and then she would manually add people to. I don't know exactly how much the group thing was. It is a situation where one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. We had somebody who would comment on every comment even if the comment was absolutely so europeans or whatever they are got doubled and it was one of the things were everybody was thinking man. I wish we could kick that person out and we didn't and what happened. Was everybody left like pretty much. An llc even stop using it because every time she said hey. New episode of the feed is out in the average number of downloads. Went up or whatever here would come this person going. Great can't wait to listen to it. Delivered no value and it was one of those things that once you noticed it it was like what you call those things on your fingers that you wanna pull off. But they hurt. Hang down with boxer weeded boxers a family that are very first family chat idea. And there's listen there's plenty of platforms that do that. I know like its voice. What are you doing. What are you hoping. What are you hoping to achieve with the group. You wanna create one. But what are you hoping to get done with it. So i haven't membership now active now. I'm just trying to create a little bit more community. We we have a community aspect on our online learning platform and a lot of training videos and things. I'm just trying to make the community more community individualized because on the other side of it community. They stay longer. They pay more jumping in and now when they feel like they're all alone so i thought boxer would help them access me. I'm nobody important is just that. If they had a question about a course or a question they we could community build better community. But then i'm thinking. Wow that could get pretty intense. Yeah yeah we use discord for that so. Our communities likes discord so same idea. I it's it's not a members only kind of thing but it's worked out that way just because the most engaged people are the ones that are going to do it. I have a moderator. That helps me in. It's under control like i. I don't got fifty sixty folks making comments every once in a while not very often things get out of control and i need to be like our guys. Let's focus. I wouldn't want fifty sixty voice boxers coming in. That'd be tough. No and you won't get. I think by the nature of having to leave a voicemail that slows that process down a little bit anyways and so. You probably wouldn't be getting that you know what just try it out. Maybe with a small focus group that of some folks that are close in there that you know. Hey we're just starting this. Maybe maybe just a few of the patrons or whatever like maybe ten give it a try to see that way you can ditch it if it doesn't it you're not committing to it and you try it with all group and not only that and i'm gonna bring a christmassy up to the stage here good morning and you have some boxer experience right i do. I use it as a teacher. Everything in one of the podcasts. That i do we have a group for it but i will say to anybody who wants to use. It can be really effective but it does take work and you have to be intentional about how you want to engage your if it just becomes another way for you to say i released my latest episode and that's the extent you're not gonna get much value out of it as the host and your audience and community also isn't going to get a lot of engagement out of it either but if you can find other ways that you want to engage with these as we're talking here in this case you've got it would be exclusive to certain people. Listen so there could be that value piece where they have that direct connection with you and again the types of questions and discussion. You have might lead to more contin on your podcast or your blog but you have to be very intentional about being active. Sounds like anything like facebook. You can make a facebook group but you still have to go in and start discussions in occasionally moderate and things of that nature to to keep things going in some cases or at least to start the fire and get people talking to each other but like i said i've seen it work really well and then like i said we just had one person in this one group i was in it was just. It just became super annoying to the point where i think everybody either a what i did. Which was you turned off your notifications which meant you didn't go back and then eventually just realized that.
Mistakes Made in Conversational Audio p1/5 - Why Is That Person On Your Podcast?
"My name is josh. Listen coming to you from my studio. He in aubrey australia. And i'm going to endeavour to do something that i am not particularly good at and that's cape today's episode short snappy and avoid going down emilian rabid halls which or data's or tangents as electical them said. Today is part one of a five part series. The sheriff mike come in little clumps from now on every day for a week in in this con- format with our lot shorter and hopefully that doesn't disturb. You're listening patterns may be mon- enjoy more. I'd love to know if it's too much or too little bit. This series is going to be short snappy and probably condensed into and the two weeks so the series itself is called mistakes made over nine years of conversational audio and give you a quick rundown of what. I'm going to cover one and today's topic. Why was that person on your podcast. A question i've been asked by different fans or listeners. Or just people in the past two. Why so many big words and other question. I've been asked three the concept of too much editing. Too little humanity number four. We can he that you're at in the world stop stressing about it and stop talking about it. So that's anyone doing lava van till there's a lot of background noise or your recording at sawed. We the audience can he. That pleased up stressing about it. That's a full topic and number five and one that become more attuned to maybe over the last twelve to eighteen months and has why. I've chosen the title conversational audio for this little mini series. I can hear you rating. Please stop off. done it in the past. Listen to shows where it's so clear that people rating and as a listener once. I noticed that unless it's a very narrative style or documentary style. Production lock it so aachen he you rating please. Stop is f- farnell subject for the miniseries. So today why was that person on the podcast of broken this up into two subsets of three three types of conversations. I had that were boring. Indo saba in three types of conversations. I had that were better than expected. For whatever reason the sub conversations number one choice guest because of their profile old their audience size in the hopes of they might be sharing. The show will giving may apply goal. Maybe i really enjoyed themselves. And we getting some backchannel conversations and maybe they exposed me to papal. Haven't met before a basically did it for regime. I building and promotional reasons not because i was in simpatico with the individual and that would normally his subha conversation Two didn't realize that valerie gila was rod and her client is not everyone who has done. Something interesting is interesting interesting. As australians would normally say. That's one for jackson school podcasting valerie's quite dairy sar right and i used to think anyone who had done something remotely interesting. As long as i could speak in bray oxygen than that was good enough to qualify as a podcast guest or a conversational partner. Not true really not true. Actually a lot of the most interesting events that sarande certain people that i know of personally seemed to also be taught up in paypal account holder on story. So you'll job as an experienced heist is to be able to obviously get great storytelling out of a myriad different types of people particularly painful that out professionally trying to not media people's that are not used to talking about themselves but if you're in the beginning to intermediate stage as a podcast host and you're aiming for what i was aiming for and that's a fly on the wall conversational top interview result. You need to somehow check out with paypal can tell darn story before you have on the shire so listen to them talk. The places look at their instagram used. I film little videos of themselves. Talking about stuff in knowle. Do what david hooper from big podcasts suggests and do some kind of prequel a little five minute coal to figure out. Can this person even remotely getting the ballpark of a good storyteller number. Three i allowed guests to sleeping to robot mode product push made and essentially allowed the interview to become to guest focused. And what i mean by that is you don't want to steal all the attention away from the guest. The giving out the time their attention possibly that audience it should always be fifty one percent day away but the other forty nine percent has to be pretty much entirely made up of a focus on your audience so you is the host. Have the job in that. Fifty one forty nine conversation of caving in mandi your day to represent an audience as well as yourself. Don't just yourself my maunder. Recorded conversation is on the interesting to someone listening to the extent that daikin see themself in the story somewhere or they can feel a part of the story hit them so
Best Practices for Podcast Show Notes PCI 227
"In creating a paid podcast subscription service. That's the rumor rumor is. They're going to call it podcasts. Plus kind of like what they did with tv plus and music plus and all those different things and you know they might do like spotify. Does you know where they have. Some exclusive content over there. We'll see i guess they'd be the next logical one to try something like that. Yeah time will tell and at the same time. They've launched what they're calling podcast spotlight so that goes along with it. I guess as well with the spotlight thing. They're already doing that in the first one is chelsea juventus. I dunno if i'm pronouncing that right. But she does the celebrity book club. And that's the one that they're spotlighting for this month. I guess it's going to be a monthly thing and it's one hundred percent up apple so there's no trickery that you can do to get in the spotlight. It's just do good content and be on apple podcasts. And all right well. I think that everyone is getting her groove on guests when it comes to this stuff now so we'll see also you know. We seem to predictions at the end of the year. We've got some predictions here at the beginning of the year and everyone is talking about all big podcasting. Is that the term. They're using the. That's in this article from voelkischer. The talking about you know. Few of their predictions and reasonable. I guess but they're they're calling big podcasting because big podcasting like apple. Google spotify those are getting into it. But you know like one of the questions as will these acquisitions payoff for big podcasting. So we'll see there's been some wall street discussion about spotify. Basically the analysis don't think it's gonna work out in their telling them to sell spotify stock so you know here's the thing that everyone should be considering is what if all of a sudden spotify says. Well we need to divest some of our assets because they're crossing is too much money. What happens if they get rid of their hosting service or something to that effect. It's probably not going to happen right away. They've got some time. Become these do this all the time they stuff and then the the resell it or kill it so i think this is a you know when you have something. That's a negative draw when you're losing money because you know regardless of what people think posting podcast does cost a considerable amount of money. We'll see what in the structure to run that but yeah people were questioning spotify's investments in some of these folks have spent some huge huge cash. And you know. I don't know this is not television in on the podcast spaces made up about what ninety ninety percent. Independent podcast creators. You know some of them make big money. I mean you know. Rogan was making great money before he went to spotify laundry was doing okay. Those are not ten percent that aren't independent exactly as a big commercial operations but the podcasting space is largely made up of anyone. Say mom and pop. That's really not it's independent creators. And some get bit great traction. Some don't seem to his hobby. Some do it try and make a little money as part of their business. So i think that the big tech folks are big. Podcasting does not quite understand they. Diversity of the podcasting space. I think they just focus on that. Three four five six seven percent at the top and don't look at the rest of the space so we'll see what happens on. We're you know we're glad specifies here and get some exposure and spot fine those other locations but it just goes back that big business makes big business changes that was a mouthful alastair their talk on a regular regular basis. So we'll see what happens with these investments that they made and also i heard dana. J lewis launched a new website. He has that podcasts. Statistics sort of thing. You know of statistics not individual show statistics and he's had that on one of his other websites finally launched it as a standalone thing. And it's over at podcast. Industry insights dot com. That's kind of a tongue twister to got some incredible pricing on this. Well you know this. Is you know for deeper dives and everything but the free dashboard that he had there that you know mainly tracks podcasts. And whatever is still there and still kinda interesting to look at as of now.

Should you create an LLC for your podcast?
"This week's question comes from jared. Hi this is. Jared hawking hosted the all things connected podcast. I love your show and find it very useful. Thank you for all that you're doing. At what point does it make sense to incorporate your podcast as a business or five. Oh one c. Three for example. If you're spending money on advertising that could be considered a business expense if it's an educational podcast. It could be a nonprofit. Do you have any advice here. Thank you thanks for your question. Jared now before we start today's episode just disclaimer. We are not legal or tax experts around. Here we are podcasters but we have formed a few. Llc's in our time so first. Let's take a look at the five. Oh one c. Three now five. Oh one c. Three does give you tax exempt status however there are legal requirements and paper than you ought to fill out and file to be able to start and maintain one so because of the challenges for most podcasters. It's actually easier to form an llc. Let's go over the basics of one. Llc actually is so llc stands for limited liability company which is an agreement between you the owner and the business the podcast so the idea is a separate your personal assets from your business assets. so there's a layer of protection there which will get to later in this episode. Yes there are also tax benefits like you can deduct marketing costs and production costs so in theory when it comes time to file your taxes. You're paying less of it. That being said it doesn't mean it's the right choice for you. So before you go. And spend gobs of money on a legal expert or tax and trying to start filing the paperwork. Let's take a look at some questions that you should consider before filing elsie. So question number one is do you want your podcast me more than just a hobby so in other words are you planning to monetize your podcast. Are you planning to make some money from your show. And if the answer is yes then it might be a good idea form an llc so you can take advantage of those tax benefits question number two is your podcast meant to support or is a part of your existing business so for example. Let's see if a consulting business and you wanna start a podcast as a marketing tool to help you generate leads and hopefully customers for your consulting business now in this case if you don't already have an llc for your consulting business it's probably a good idea to form one and having a podcast is even more of a reason. Ukraine elsie question number. Three does your show have co host or is it part of a podcast network. Now if you're flying solo your podcast is just a hobby. You're not really sure we want to do with it. The whole question of whether nice ukraine llc can be left to the side for now however if you a co host or your show is part of a podcast network. Forming an llc will give you a framework in which to navigate that relationship so you can both really stand. Your legal rights are and give you a lot more clarity. So for example do you and your co host fifty fifty ownership stake. What happens to the money. You or if you're part of a podcast network. Does the podcast network owned part of your show. What happens to the profits or the money that you earn then. These are all questions that are really useful to answer before you enter into any business relationship question number four. Has your show been around for a long time or are you just starting out like we mentioned earlier. An llc is to provide protective barrier between you. The owner and the business the podcast. So the idea is it reduces your liability in case something happens. It's out of your control now. If you're just starting out you don't have a lot of listeners. So the chances of that happening isn't that high now. However if your show has been around for a long time you have a lot of subscribers listeners or even a huge fan base for your show that might be a good idea to form an llc just in case something does happen question number five do. The benefits outweigh the costs. Yes for me. An llc can reduce your tax burden if you wanted to deduct that new microphone that you got but don't forget filing and maintaining llc also comes to own costs right there's a filing fee for your state it could even be fees for the attorney to help you file these documents. If you need a registered agent that might come with its own fees if you want to create a separate address or have a po box for your business back comes additional fees or if you're really unsure what you needed deducting your business and you need to consult an accountant or a cpa. That comes with its own fees so all of that can really add up so if you're just looking to deduct a couple hundred dollars from your business it might not be the best idea however planning to do something like launching a cores or monetize podcast in a much bigger way than creating. Llc can be a great idea. Ultimately there are a lot of factors to consider whether or not

I mean i'm probably not doing it. The right way quote unquote. Oh man. But i use a buyer dynamic Med t g. It's a kicked mike. It's like flat. Iki you completely flat. They actually individually eq- each mike and then print out the e q for you so you can see it allow so i purchased this. Microphone to use for looping performances actually initially and had the a customer representative like the store guy put the mic on the speaker like put it on the app and there was no feedback and i was impressed. I was like okay. Let's go with this one then because because you know relentlessly the problem has a looping musician is that you catch feedback amplifies it.

S4E21 Summer Series: Immersive audio with Dan Blank
"This episode. We're talking to dan blank. Writer director and creator of the heat. Podcast carrier dan. He's production team courageous and amazingly immersive listening experience. And we're gonna find hannah. Did it and why you might consider an emergency podcast for your audience. When you're working in something like animation or film the motto is always show. Don't tell but with audio. I'm always trying to find ways to allow sound design to tell a story before relying on the dialogue. That was my approach from san cartel. I'm nick burger. And this is podcasting Welcome to episode nine of season. Four and hello again to producer and co host nicole goodman nick so good to be back. Look this is going to be a fascinating episode with dan. Because we're all obsessed with sound here at sound cartel which you'd hope forgiven. We work in an audience eighty so we thought that for ourselves and for you the listener it would be a great treat to dig into the technology behind by neural audio. Yes and not just by normal but all things immersive which is something way being keeping an eye on. I very long time here zan cartel so we know the pow can have on the now and the dip that can give to the listening experience. Yeah especially because sound is something that can be taken for granted. It's not often given a second thought really but there are so many aspects to sound the way it's created and edited and the emotion. It can bring the listener as well. Yeah so we know that technology is developing all the time which is really exciting and here is an cocktail where experimenting with immersive audio ourselves and i very much look forward to injecting some new elements into the work that we do with clients. But let's get to damn blank and he's firsthand experienced in this spice. Yes absolutely so. Dan blank is a writer director. Who's worked in hollywood for many years. He's directed award winning short films commercials. He's written and developed features as well he devils in visual effects and animation and is very much about innovating in the space which is probably why widened first foray into podcasts. This amazing immersive production carrier was also nominated for iheartradio's best fiction podcast in two thousand and twenty which is not bad for your first podcast. So let's get straight to the man himself dan blank. Thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to have you on podcasting essentials. Thanks for having me great to be here. Dan carry a did come out last year but from us to you congrats again on the success of carrier thank you. We actually celebrated our one year anniversary just last week. So show officially launched on july fifteenth. Last year they guys but a nice. Little ride very timely. Yeah beautiful now dan. How did the idea for carrier come about well. I have a background as a filmmaker. And i'd been pitching developing film projects at studios in hollywood for many years and i was becoming frustrated. Just how hard it was to get. A movie made There's so many factors that go into green leading a production. That are out of your control. And i'm someone who came up working in animation and visual effects producing my own shorts in my spare time so as really eager to just get out there and make something again. And i really wanted to find a project that i could make outside the traditional system so i was thinking a lot about contained worlds and contained stories that could have a very limited cast few locations but premise that was compelling enough to keep an audience engaged so for years. I've been kicking around this idea of a truck driver transporting a mysterious cargo on all night drive and once i found the right character to drive that truck who would face the most obstacles and have the most interesting journey. The basic story quickly fell into place so the story is about a woman named railing. Watts who is african american. She's played by cynthia rio and she's just trying to get home to your family in chicago. And she's the one who takes the drive and then it goes completely crazy doesn't but we we don't want to spoil the storyline dan so wall Leave that to the listeners. But thing filmmaker i guess. Congratulations on also stealing. The fuel rods now was always the intention when you reuters and when will be in production. I'd say sign. The film rights was a hope but it was never the sole intention. I should probably back up. Just explain how. This became an audio drama. Even though i started developing it as a film i wanted to make this thing on a real shoestring budget as an independent project. And just as i was developing in getting ready to write the screenplay my asian rob hurting called me to tell me he was no longer my agent but it was because he was launching a new company to produce audio dramas so this project seemed like it was the perfect one to collaborate on and produced through q code. Q code has gone on to make some other audio dramas such as blackout and left right game. Then quite a few others so for me. You know it was so exciting about entering this audio space with q code was that we knew that we'd have budget to produce the project and a guaranteed distribution model. Which meant everything to me. Because one of the challenges. As i said a filmmaking is that so many pieces have to come together at just the right way in order to get a film into production but with podcasting. There's no obstacles aside from the ones we were putting ourselves. And i knew that it was possible to translate something like an audio series into other formats. And it's one of the reasons why q code was founded and i'm also close friends with so many michael bloomberg who is one of the co creators of homecoming. Which is another successful podcast. That became a successful television series on amazon.
The Cliff Ravenscraft Story: Part 2
"You made it all right. If you're listening to this and you haven't heard part one of my interview with cliff ravens craft then hit the pause button and listen to that one okay. If you're still here that means you either. Listen to part one of my interview with cliff ravens craft or you're a rebel and decided to ignore my advice. Okay i'm cool with that either way. I'm so excited to share part to my conversation with podcasting legend cliff ravens craft in part one. We learned all about the beginning of his journey. How faith played a role in his life and his podcasting journey and advice that he has for anyone just starting out in this episode. He opens up about the challenges he faced in his career including almost dying. After a year of working almost nonstop he also talks a lot about what's most important to him at this stage in his career. How he handles. Those unsubscribe irs that used to get him upset and now no longer do andy shares. What books have been most influential in his life. Some of them have been literally life changing. We also dive even deeper into his faith journey including some areas that he never thought that he would go. We get deep to say the least so with that. Let's jump in to the conversation. Two thousand eight. You work your butt off working every day by two thousand nine. You were literally in the hospital you almost died and i know you loved every minute of the work you were. You said it was oxygen for you in to you flash forward to today and when i say today i mean the last year or so really identified. Okay what's most important right. So what's most important to experience peace love joy and abundance regardless of any external forces are circumstances. You're fully committed to knowing entrusting your creator in a more intimate way and that doesn't mean by the way to your own point that you need to be searched you need to be have institutionalized religion. Frankly thought that. And part of your exploration part of the things that i mentioned earlier when you look at world religion other other forms of religion. You know the autobiography of a yogi mean that right there is counter to what some would say you should do. But then you are living the path of what others think you should live instead of living the path that you want to live in so for someone who is maybe uncertain which direction they should go or uncertain how they should channel their own inner guide in write their own story. How did you arrive at this point where you feel comfortable enough to ignore what is conditioned beliefs of what you should be doing and instead you're doing what cliff wants to do what cliff but also not letting your ego misguide. Yeah well first of all. How did i come to this place. It's it's through something. It's through leaving my careers and insurance agent and a lifetime experience of only being an employee and having that first year in two thousand eight working around the clock working myself literally almost to death. I was on death's door at the in the hospital in january. Two thousand nine only made eleven thousand dollars that year but we had become debt free in february two thousand seven and all through two thousand eight. We never once went back into debt and as a result of that year may have experienced a lot of worry a lot of fear. A lot of anxiety. A lot of self doubt. I never once questioned whether or not it was the right thing to do Whether or not. This is what i was called doing what i was put on this earth to do and that kept me moving forward and the fact is is that in spite of some of my stupid mistakes my limiting beliefs and my fears our family. My wife and my children and myself we lacked nothing. We lacked nothing that year. That's not to say that we didn't pinch pennies or whatever but we we had everything we needed. And then i could tell you just through all the different things there. Is this thing that i called the europe provisions after reading. The autobiography of george mueller. That had a very powerful impact on my life and then just some other things every time. When i did the thing that most people would say. That's the most irresponsible thing i've ever heard. You should never do that every time. I followed my heart's intuition. The prompting of the spirit the the universe if you will whenever i followed what i felt was truly what i was to do next. There is tons of risk involved. But every time i saw even greater success when i say success i'm talking about the fact that it was not as difficult in as challenging the second the third or the fourth time. I did that and so eventually. Got to the place where it's like. Wait a second
