A highlight from Ep117: The Ultimate Podcasting Secrets You Must Know - Aileen Prak
"Grow your show dot com. And just let us know that this was episode 117. What your name is, and we will add you to actually win some free shit. Some good shit. The good shit. All right, with that said, I don't want to interrupt the episode too much because I know that the episode also has a ton of value. So let's jump right in. And today I'm joined with a friend. Somebody that I've known for quite a while. Eileen Pratt, her husband Saleh started a podcast quite a while back. It's called how did they do it real estate? It's a real estate investing podcast. And I remember when they reached out to me and said that they wanted me to be the show. I was incredibly honored and I was like, yes, I want to do it. I must have been one of your first. Like close to it, right? Yep. And actually, your episode ended up spanning three episodes on our podcast because you provided so much great value on that that we had to break it into three episodes. That is so funny. I appreciate that. You know what's funny? When I tried to add value or whatever, when I try to answer questions, I'm always trying to think, how does this matter to the person listening? And so sometimes I think that I go into just so much detail to make sure that the tangible takeaways are there. And so this is definitely the first time that it's been turned into three episodes. But it wouldn't be the first time that somebody said, I usually go 20 minutes and then we take like 45 minutes or whatever. So I think that's interesting. It's a blessing and a curse. Eileen, I want to talk about going back to how do they do it and your podcast, there is so many questions in my mind that I think the listener wants to know and if you don't mind me starting here and just share what you feel comfortable with, I started a podcast with other people. I would say I'm grateful none of them were married to me. Because honestly it didn't end up working out with them as co hosts. And it was especially challenging for me to make that change with two co partners. And so something that I'm always thinking about is most people that want to start a podcast, they think to themselves, I want to start a podcast, but I don't want to do it myself. Either because I'm not fully confident in myself by being by myself or because I'm not sure I could sustain if it was just me. I might do like three episodes and drop off. But if I have an accountability partner with me, it'll help. see like so many people who are thinking about starting a podcast might decide I want a partner so that it solves these problems. You not only started a podcast with a co host, but you're also married to the co host. So I'm wanna know pros and cons for you what we should be thinking of before we launch a podcast with a co host. Yeah, so exactly to your point, when we first started the podcast, me and my husband were thinking to ourselves, well, we wanted to create the thought leadership platform. But how are we going to do it? And of course, when you do it, when you go into something new together with a partner, things just seem so much better because you're able to share in your nervousness, you're able to share in the experiences and you're just able to spread that a little bit more when you have a partner. And so that's why we decided to do it together first. Because both of us are very, I would say when we first started even now still, we're very introverted people. We never put ourselves out there before. So starting the podcast was a huge challenge for us. And so having to talk about ourselves and everything like that. So having someone there, especially your spouse made it so much easier because we could brainstorm together like at all times of the day we had access to each other. We could brainstorm how we wanted to structure the podcast. And then we could go in and we would take turns asking questions to our guests and then we try to make it as smooth as possible because you didn't want to start interviewing the guests with your co host and stepping on each other's toes and then mess up the flow of the podcast. So we would kind of structure it where he would take the first couple of questions and then I would take the couple of seconds and we kind of play around to see where each person best fit within the podcast interviews.

A highlight from Ep116: Questions As Content
"I'm excited to hang out with you. I'm excited to share with you something that I learned from good friend of mine. His name is Chad. Chat woodfield. Do you know what time it is?

A highlight from Beware the Podcast Sales!
"Sure that you had the same emails. Do you know what? January is about to roll around again. Two. The emails are just going to keep on coming with offers that are doing big air course when I do this that are too good to be true. There are often very time bound with word in like act now. They're often a huge discount as well. You know, you'll hear things like down from $997 to 297 for today only. Oh dear. I mean, you can save a little bit of money. Of course it does. So what's the problem? Well, the problem is this. To succeed at anything you have to do something. You have to do something. Let me tell you a story that will help you to understand what I'm getting at. And why you might need to be wary of these podcast guru bloody sales. My granddad he didn't have a dog. He didn't Reuben. My old granddaughter he didn't have a dog. But he bought dog food. I kid you know. All right, my granddaughter. It was a great guy. It was a really, really nice guy. He was very close to him and spent a lot of time with him. And if you see my TEDx talk, she was happiness, choose control, just Google that to just happen to choose control. You'll know just how much he taught me about life and why that really matters to the business that I've created today in captivate FM. And daddy love my dog Pete. God rest is so Pete. He was a giant akita Alsace and bull mastiff cross, completely the opposite to the dogs that we've got. Now Molly and Norman who are staffing in a little dorky kind of terrier. The exact opposite and like you said, God rest is doggy, so we lost Pete last year. But every time my granddad went shopping, he bought whatever dog food was on sale at a price bag in legitimately. He bought a couple of tins or whatever a bag of dog food and asset to him. Once I said, look, dude, what are you doing? Why are you buying dog food granted? We've got P it comes to visit you. But what are you doing? And he said, well, it's just in case. It's just in case he was that guy. He was always trying to be prepared. You know, it was aired on the side of preparation. And I really appreciate it. I appreciate that. So the Pete, I'm sure. But my granddad also told me that the other reason that he bought the dog food was that it was a bargain, because it was on sale. All right, you know, whatever going to this cool. But the problem was, he didn't need the dog food. And he didn't use the dog food. It just used a mount up. You know, it was a good deed. He was doing. But he didn't need it and it didn't use it because he had already been fed every time we saw him. We used to see my grand 11 o'clock on a Sunday morning. He'd already been fed every time we saw him a granddad, all right, but my grand kept buying it just in kiss. And he kept buying it literally buying it buying it binding because he felt like he was saving money. That particular item was reduced, all right? That particular item was reduced, but that didn't mean that he needed it didn't mean that he was going to use it. It didn't mean that it was actually a bargain. But like I said, he felt like he was saving money because that particular item was reduced in price. He had a sticker on it that said down from whatever two pounder. One pound, one pound 50. But it got me thinking. Really saving money. If you buy something that you need and that you'll use and then you find a deal on it. Let me just reiterate that, all right, because I don't know if people always appreciate this. I saw someone on TV yesterday they were talking about how we went out to town and we wasn't supposed to be spending much money because we've been saving for a house, but there was so many black Fridays deals on that we saved so much. Wait a second, so you came out of the house, not intended to spend money. You spent money out of your sieve and but you saved so much. What? That didn't make any sense. Now I don't know the circumstances of that person. Maybe they did find something that they needed, and that they were going to use right away. And then they found a deal on it, but I want to just reiterate that. You are only saving money if you buy something that you need, and that you'll use. And then you go ahead and find a deal on it. It's not saving money if you buy something that you don't need at a cheaper price than it originally was when you still didn't need it. All right. Because in that case, you spend your money that you weren't ever going to spend in the name of a bargain. All right, it's silly. All right, now how does this relate to podcasting? How does this relate to podcasting? Well, podcast course sales aren't all their purported to be. Now, I know so many people. Offering like podcast guru courses, you know, our explored this or 20 X that or there's one secret, get my player book all that crap, all right? Our memberships, you know? During the holiday season, there are so many people in any field not just podcast in any field online, whatever you're into.
A highlight from Honestly, How Long Does it Take to Create an Amazing Podcast Episode?
"Coupon code listener that's FIST, EN ER, and that is another 5% off than usual from now to the end of 2021. And on today's show, I always ask a question at the end of the month. I shouldn't say, oh, I typically ask a question at the end of the month. And this month's question was, how long does it take you to go from idea to actually clicking publish on an episode? So we're not talking promoting and all that other stuff. We're just talking about getting it out the door. And the inspiration of this is I had an email a while back that kind of said, I don't think you guys are being honest. And when I started timing myself, I realized that there are times that I will say, well, the best I've ever been able to achieve is a four to one ratio, meaning that 15 minute podcast will take you an hour. And you're like, how is that? Well, you have to figure out what you're going to say, then you're recorded. And unless you're perfect, you probably have to edit it. A little bit, at least, and then you upload it to your media host, you write some descriptions, some show notes, and congratulations at 15 minute podcast just took you an hour. And that's the best I've ever done. And I don't think I emphasized that enough. That's the best. That's not the norm. That's the best. That's the goal. And as I recorded, more and more of my episodes, I'll be explaining what that is later. What I came up with, but I asked you, I said, hey, how long does it take you to go from idea to publishing an episode? And I'm so happy that people respond. Because this was one. I always want to know the answer, but this is one I was really, really curious about. So we're going to get to your answers right after I tell you about my good friend Thomas. And if you're like, Thomas, I use the man behind novel marketing. I've been talking about novel marketing for a few weeks now, because a lot of podcasters plan to write a book, maybe 2022 is the year you finally write that book and you don't know where to start. Well, novel marketing is here to help.

Let's get you some value today. What's kind of cool is Linda, who's with us today? She actually launched her podcast only about a week before we're recording this. So what I think you're going to get from this is real life in the trenches. I haven't been doing this for ten years and I know every single thing or I forgotten what it really took. She's in it. She knows exactly what's going on. So that's where we're going to come from today. What's really neat about Linda is a couple of years about maybe two, three years ago, she started this brand called women action takers. And she's got all of these different avenues, helping people publish books. She's got networking events for it. She's got additionally, a few other things plus. She just launched her podcast. Women action takers, TM, because she's trademarked in that bad woman. That bad girl? I don't know how to say it. That girl. Yeah, because that just sounds terrible.

Some once exclusive podcasters are challenging the notion that you can never go home again. They assume their audience will be happy to see them. But reality may not line up with those assumptions. Podcasts have gone exclusive do the calculus on moving back to free and wide distribution by making three assumptions. Assumptions that could do with some challenging. Assumption number one my existing listeners will keep listening when the podcast is no longer exclusive. Yes, I think that assumption is largely true. But what happens if the exclusive app you left is only four exclusive podcasts? Or did you burn a bridge, and your podcast is no longer welcome there? And what if the listener's experience is truly better on that platform? A platform where your show is not. Assumption number two the listeners I lost when I went exclusive will love to have my podcast back. Are you sure about that? Some grudges run deep and are hard to get over. And every last listener found other podcasts to fill the void left by your podcast. People move on. Third assumption wider distribution plus loyal fans plus the fans who returned equals larger audience. The math checks out on that, but the big question is larger audience than when. There's a very good chance you lost a lot when your podcast went exclusive. And a lot of your old fans won't return. You may have to learn a new hustle game. But please understand, I'm not opposed to shows deciding to take the exclusive route if that is the right opportunity for them. Just be sure you've thought through what happens when the exclusivity is over. The game may have changed while you were away.

A highlight from House Of Pod Closes The House
"I clearly remember meeting cat jaffe. That's because her energy just fills the room. It was back in 2017, cat was a student of mine in a weeklong transom workshop on Catalina island, which is off the coast of Los Angeles. I had produced nothing. I had no significant previous experience in audio. I just really wanted to make podcasts. Cat was in the workshop for maybe three days when she made an announcement. She told the class she was struck with an idea. A big idea to pursue when she returned home to Colorado. I wanted to make a space where people could make podcasts together. That was the biggest thing. I wanted to continue what I'd had the taste of at three of them. Things are better when you can do it with other people. And so I'll be honest with the cat when you announce this to the class. I thought to myself, okay, cats very much a Newbie to audio storytelling and podcasting and radio, the whole shebang. Good luck with starting a community podcast center in Denver. Yeah. You're not the only one. But here's the thing about cat's time at the Catalina workshop. She needed to leave early for a work commitment. Instead of completing the workshop in 7 days, like everyone else, she finished in four days. Four. This was unheard of, especially since the workshop was so rigorous, long days and nights, lots of heavy lifting for students, producing a sound rich story for the first time in a place they'd never been. I remember that piece. I don't think it was very good. But the point is, she did it. In record time. And so I thought, what do I know? Maybe cat can put together a podcast training and production center. But coworking spaces are becoming all the rage these days. And one facility in north Denver is seeing so much success in just the first few weeks, it may need to expand. It's called the house of pod. Jeff Todd checked it out for Jeff. It sounds like a really cool idea, a cool place. People there create podcast? Yeah, Karen, but the truth of the matter is that it's quite expensive. First you've got to have the space and then equipment just like this is really expensive cat opened the doors to house of pod in May of 2018. It's a local hub for podcasting. They hold workshops, they provide studios for people to record in. There's a place for everyone to hang out and work together. You know, get to know each other, help out that kind of thing. House a pod also produces branded content, including a series for National Geographic that won a first place award for narrative nonfiction from the Tribeca Film Festival. And if that wasn't enough, cat even launched amped, a nonprofit to support podcasting from marginalized voices. So in short, cat created exactly what she'd been looking for. She injected a strong spirit of community into podcast making. She described it to me as a third place. That's a term coined by a sociologist to mean those important places in our lives that aren't home or work. The bowling alleys, the movie theaters, the coffee shops, the house of pots. I watched her efforts from a distance, remembering her whirlwind few days at the transom workshop and thinking, well, I'll never doubt cat again. But not too long ago, I got an email from House of pod with a video. Hi, my name is kataki, and I'm the founder and director of House of pod. House of pod is an award winning podcast production company, as well as a few in the video. I think cats sitting in a bathtub. It's hard to tell, but regardless, she had bad news. I'm afraid we're gonna have to close down our community space and adjust our business model. This would suck. I was startled by what she said. And I wondered, what could stop cat jaffe from doing whatever she puts her mind to. It's the end of an era for me for sure. This is how sound, the backstory to great audio storytelling. It's produced by PRX and transom, I'm rob Rosenthal. House of pod is located in the 5 points neighborhood of Denver. In what one news site called a bizarre building. It's an old warehouse that looks like a cross between a castle and a church they said. Kat told me it's a great spot. There's a parking lot and it's close to public transportation, and there was room for studios and meetings and collaborating. It had all the things. But there was one problem the basement. It was a rehearsal space for heavy metal bands. We would bring them pizza and beer and be like, do you guys want to take a break right now? And we would basically facilitate that break and then go quickly record what we needed to record. Eventually the landlord agreed to move the bands to the back of the building and House of pod, got some quiet and more space. Along with figuring out the noise problem, there was another not cat needed to untie. The money not. She needed money for the lease for equipment, for furniture, for staff. One way to pay for those things was to charge a fee for memberships. Hundred bucks a month. Members would receive access to professional studios and the coworking space. But remember, cat hadn't really produced anything before. My thought was no one's going to come to a podcast production community that I make unless I can prove that I am a podcaster. And I don't have the money to just make my own show at this time, and cover all of these things. So I'm going to make a show for someone else.
A highlight from Ep113: How To Support Your Podcasts Growth - Kenneth Kinney
"My job is really to make things understandable to people, whether it's something super technical, or even simplistic, but make it in a way that resonates with people so that they understand I'm talking about often a lot of times the fear and anxiety that people go through and how to overcome a lot of them. Most hosts never achieve the results they hoped for. They're falling short on listenership and monetization, meaning their message isn't being heard, and their show ends up costing them money. This podcast was created to help you grow your listenership and make money while you're at it. Get ready to take notes. Here's your host, Adam Adams. And we're back with another episode of pop the podcast on podcasting. And today we're swimming with sharks, we're swimming with the Kenneth shark Kinney in the house. I should have like, yeah, here we go. Kenneth in the house. Thank you. How you doing, man? Doing well, how about stuff a long time, no talk to. Long time, no talk. Yeah, we met on Clubhouse. I've avoided Clubhouse, not because I wanted to, but because clients, we have a lot of clients and we have just been needing to serve them at a high level. And you've been swimming with the sharks. Wait, literally. Work Trump's social media? I don't know how to answer that. Social media is super duper important. But when you're busy and you're training new staff just to keep up with the workload, you can't maybe do both. And so my goal is within the next 6 weeks, I want to be able to be 5 hours a week on Clubhouse. So we brought on so many different clients, excuse me, yes, that is true too. But we've brought on so many different teammates. And so we've grown the team huge, more than doubled the team. And that's going to be able to support me to be able to do it. But applause again. Yeah. button. So Kenneth shark as they call you. You've got a podcast and you've been swimming with sharks for a while and you're a speaker. You speak all over. And I loved something that you mentioned to me just while we were kind of shooting the breeze before we started recording. You mentioned that one of the things that you do is when you're speaking and going around and doing your job, you try to create it to be fun as well. So anytime you can speak in Florida, you can go and swim with the sharks. So I want you to start out here. Why did you start your podcast? That's the main question I want to have. What's the why behind the why for you starting a podcast? And if you wouldn't mind adding on top of that, just your process for starting that first show. Sure. So about 75 years ago when I was young. I started on the radio, and I was doing sports talk in a small market, a hundred years ago. What feels like a hundred years ago anyway. And so I did that for years, got out of it and then had a normal working career. And in between a couple of stints in that working career, I was a public speaker. I spoke at college's universities all over the country for several years, kind of got out of it back into some family duties with a father that ended up passing away. Then got back into media again was on TV and radio here in the local market and also produced a show that was seen all over the world years ago. And I took that radio show, this is about a decade ago. And I took the radio show and I repurposed it as a podcast. And so it was fun. You started playing around with what bumper music you could use on the radio and all the fun music you couldn't and you're still interviewing guests, and it was just it was a fun way to repurpose content a decade ago. So I did that for quite a while. And then it took another pause when another parent, my mom got sick and passed away. So as I was itching after by got through that period of my life, as when she was gone and settled, I was itching to get back into radio and had the opportunity to go back into it. But I really wanted to figure out a way to grow specifically what I wanted to do without necessarily be holding to a lot of advertisers or focused only on the money aspect of the new I had a message that I wanted to try to get out there with better forms of marketing, advertising, customer experience, that kind of business acumen that I had learned and been able to fail at many times before and recites and better ways of doing it.

Should You Wear Headphones or Not?
"One of my clients reached out to me and they said, is it absolutely necessary, she said, for me to wear my headphones? Why do I need to wear my headphones? I don't want to wear headphones. They don't look very good. They look clunky and there is two main reasons why it's a non negotiable that you wear headphones or earbuds at a minimum earbuds or air buds or whatever. And there's two reasons in the first main reason is that your guests sound quality or your co hosts sound or even your computers sound. Like if your computer makes a sound and it comes out of your speakers, whether it's your guest, your co host or just a notification. That sound can actually go into the microphone, which will result in poor audio quality. A bad recording. You'll get feedback, you'll get loops. You'll get echoing. And you'll just get unwanted sounds. That's the first main reason, especially if you have a co host or if you're having guests on your show. Yes, you have to wear headphones. You've got to get the sound directly to your ears so that their sound doesn't come out of your speakers and back into your microphone echoing back to them. The second reason why it's important to have headphones or earbuds is that you're not going to be able to hear what you sound like on the

Megan Tan: Walking Away From a Successful Podcast
"Back in two thousand fifteen megatonne picked up a microphone and she launched a podcast a career. Really megan had never produced an audio story before but that didn't matter she had a story. She felt compelled to tell a memoir recorded as it happened. You're listening to millennial a podcast series about something that no one ever teaches you how to maneuver your twenties captured in real recently. I'm millennial. I graduated from college without a plan. Then i came home but things had changed. Megan stories were honest and intimate listeners. Loved millennial did podcast reviewers. The show took off. I made my first crucial decision as a postgraduate millennial and decided to move on with my boyfriend eventually though millennial wore her down since millennial was about megan the mike she picked up was always pointed at her. Everything in her life was fodder for the program. Her relationship with her parents. Her boyfriend work friends taxes. She felt like she couldn't put the mic down until she did. Megan closed up shop about two and a half years and forty seven episodes later. She had to. She couldn't take it any longer. I interviewed megan about that decision in two thousand eighteen. So here's this thing that you built with a lot of your own sweat and you become part of radio topi a- at the best month you have your four hundred thousand downloads and you walk away Do you know how many people out there who are making their own podcast. Right now would die for that. I wonder if they would though like when the thing that you love is grinding you into the ground mentally emotionally.
Using Dynamic Content to Sell Products and Services on a Podcast
"So my favorite way to sell on the podcast and this is only been made available recently, like in the last year, it hasn't even been a full year yet is dynamic content. If you're a buzz sprout user, you have this feature already in your dashboard. You can actually just upload a audio file to the very beginning or the very end of your podcast and that could be your own self sponsored ad. I'm gonna link to a few of my favorite resources. I have about dynamic content. If you're crystal, I don't know what that is. Don't worry, I got you covered. I have lots of YouTube videos. I have some podcast episodes for you to check out. But the reason why I like this so much is because it's not difficult to do and it can be applied immediately to all of your episodes. So when I sit down to create a piece of dynamic content, I'll record it, and it's usually less than a minute and a half because of the way I technical things on the back end. I just like to have my music playing in the background and I know that the music that I have in order to make it to where it's not too much editing on my part, I have to make it a certain length. So I will record the audio clip, put some music behind it, upload it into buzz brow and then I can click a button and apply it to all of my podcast episodes. It's just my favorite. It works so stinking well, and I think that if there's one place that you can really experiment and try new things, if you're like, I just don't know. If I want to say that in every episode, that's fine. Put it in your dynamic content, and then you can swap it out and change
How to Ask for Listener Support (Without Sounding Desperate)
"Are the steps or strategies or even a script to us support whether it's in the beginning the middle or even at the end to ask for support without signing two desperate when any monetize ation links. That you pride guys. Thanks for your question jez. Now asking for monetary support whether. That's a one time donation becoming a member of your patriot. Community or buying emerged conceal. Feel really hard but the thing is you'd be surprised at how much our listeners want to support you and once you make that call to action that they're going to rally round you and your show. It's really no different than asking for someone to subscribe to your podcast or even leaving a review in a podcast directory like apple podcasts. Tip number one is a very clear and compelling reason why you're asking for monetary support is it so that you can pay your editor you're looking to be compensated for your time or you're trying to create in-person event and you need some money to be able to do so the more clear of a reason you give to your listeners. The more likely there to understand why you need monetary support and then donate to your cause. Remember two is. What's in it for the listener as in. What are they going to get from providing monetary support. Are they going to get a bonus episode on their monthly patron feed. Are they going to get a shoutout or a. Thank you on your podcast for supporting you or are they going to get merged like stickers or postcard for donating a certain amount to your show. Tim number three is to make it super easy for your listeners to support you now. They have a clear and compelling message including what's in it for the listener. There's no place for them to click on a link or figure out where to support you. How are you going to get that money now. There are places like super casts may get super easy to deliver things like bonus episodes and there's different pricing tiers of your listeners can pick or if you have a pay pal link or other you want to point your listeners to make sure to have those links everywhere that includes your show notes your website. Your social media handles and even your episode description
Dana Che: The Recipe for a Successful Podcast Launch
"If you could just give us the recipe that you heard people are supposed to use when they launch a podcast. And then maybe we could talk a little bit more later about your specifically what you did in your pre launch. You said I didn't do 6 weeks. But what's kind of like this plan that you've heard in the past? Well, I've heard that you first of all need to really drill down on your avatar. So you need to know who your demographic is, and you need to be able to name this person and you need to be able to feel this person's pain. And you need to be so in touch with your avatar that when you do a podcast, that person is who you are broadcasting to. Didn't do that. And then I also heard that, of course, you're supposed to have several episodes in the bank. So you should have, I've heard anywhere from 6 to 35 episodes just stored so that you can constantly produce content. We see a lot of podcasts, ghosting that happens where people will launch a show and then you don't hear from them for like 6 weeks, and you're like, that's kind of hard, especially for a new podcast to follow. And so I didn't have anything in the bank. Like I said, I literally made the decision on Friday and did the first episode on Saturday. So I feel like all of the traditional rules, all the equipment, I was literally getting equipment in as I was recording the show. My husband would be like, hey, Amazon just delivered something and I hit pause and I ran downstairs to see what it was. I mean, it was so janky. I don't recommend anybody start the way that I started.

Is Podcasting Good for Promoting a Course?
"Podcasting. Good for promoting course now. I did a full episode on this And there's also i believe there's an accompanying accompanying blog posts. But yes i think that creating podcasts. Podcast your course i. I'm not gonna go so far as to say it's essential. But i think it is one of the best marketing and promotion tools that you can have for promoting your course and here's why people need to know like entrust you when they're buying a course from you. I learned this the hard way i thought. I'll just put out a course that people wanna learn about and they'll buy it right very field of dreams approach if i build it. They will come. I have a big audience in the wordpress base. My first course was how to build a blog and that was a failure for several reasons. First of all it was fully text based course when especially something like that lends itself to screen casts right. I'm where i'm talking about how to build a blog wordpress. There should be a video tutorials for step by step instructions how to do something not just texting screen shots second of all. There's too much free content on exactly how to do that but third of all people didn't know me for starting a blog. People knew me as a wordpress developer and so when people saw this offering they thought sure joe has a blog. But what is joe know about starting and growing and more importantly monetize ing a blog. I see no proof that he really knows how to do that. So people didn't. They knew me. They liked me but they didn't trust me in this subject matter area. So if you start a podcast to promote your course and we talked about this last week. Right with alister. Mcdermott on our live coaching. Call if you start a podcast to promote your course you can establish that trust with your target

Pros & Cons of the Rode NTG-3 Shotgun Microphone
"The road in tj. Three a shock. I'm mark not a traditional choice for a podcast is still my favorite mark. My voice when. I'm speaking completely in awe selection if it's just going to be may on the recording like maybe on the bubble podcast for example which is a tv podcast that. I don't like a hubby cher. That mock works. Great for that when i think about what. I'd like to san locked recorded. That mike doesn't fill me. It gets me there but there are a few issues with the mark being a super cardio. Patent mania has a very taught pickup patent in front of the microphone. Basically when those patents start to become more narrow it does open up a window at the back of the marker fine for whatever reason physics that you will sell a some re noise problems. So if you've got a holly reflective surface directly behind the mic or annoy souls like a small feign or an air conditioner on the wall directly behind the mock you will mice lockley pick up more of that san than you're expecting to and the other thing is and this is something that ryo tiger actually mentioned to me that ryo tiger from the podcast. Roundtable shukan mocks. Ken behave little bit strangely in very small rooms and i mean a very small room at the moment. This is a small bedroom. That i mean now so i don't use it in. He because when tested adding this is the smallest of ever obtaining podcasting was basically just the studio and that it does and very booming here. And i'm not sure why is just the way does marks wick. It does tend to send muddy if it's not in exactly the right place in the room. Like i could find a spot in this room but i had to three lodge catches in so unless i'm going to record standing up talking to that mike where can move around a little bit. I'm kind of limited. As to where i can actually position myself. Sorry i would bar. I shock on mike and try in your space. I if at all possible because in my opinion you're either gonna get close to the best vocal sant that you're gonna be able to get or it could be really hard to deal with

Strategic Podcast Partners: Why You Need One
"I love doing the educational pieces of podcasting. Because this is all the stuff that i wish. I would've known. Whenever i first got started in a strategic podcast partnership was not even on my radar not at all because i never heard anybody talking about it and having had many strategic partners over the last few years i thought. Why don't more people talk about this. It's like it happens and you see it happening to maybe other people in your sphere. But you're like whoa. How did that person get connected to that person. And then all of a sudden they have this cool relationship or they have this new partnership that you see like on social media or maybe you see it in different communities. Whatever but you're like but how. How did that actually happen. How did this work now after today. You're not gonna have like this magic formula for how to make you know someone your best friend. Amy porterfield like i'm not going to give you like the magic sauce the magic recipe to all of a sudden. Make it to where you have someone that who has a huge platform now that you're you're besties with them. But i am going to give you some practical advice like i said earlier. Lots of examples. And i want you to walk away from this episode knowing that when you show up and you serve and you give tons of value. I'm a firm believer that it comes back tenfold. It's what happened with me. Creating my podcast me creating my youtube channel me just really continuing to provide value. It's something that people come to me. That i don't even know right. Maybe we've never met in person. Maybe we've never talked. Maybe you've put a comment on social media. And that's the only interaction that we've ever actually had but i will have people tell me you deliver so much value because that's one of my principals in. It's something that i stick by. And i just love showing up and serving this way and it's what i'm doing here today because like i said. I wish somebody would have told me about this. This was something that could really really helped me get further in my podcasting journey. Because it's something i didn't even think about. It's just something that happened naturally and organically and now that i have several partners strategic people in my life that helped me whenever i felt stuck or they introduced me to other people. Like y'all the power of an introduction especially when you're looking at a you know someone you're like oh my gosh so cool to just meet them being in their sphere to know that you're actually connected with the people that can help you go further faster. It's just it's it's game changing. It's game

Just the number of people who know who you are on the internet and then also growing your podcast but i know for a lot of people. Instagram can be really confusing to like you post things.

I think oftentimes people are utilizing these schedulers and all these other tools that have been created to help with the content creation process and social media management but in actuality. They're hurting you in the past. You cut schedule something and let it post automatically they could add the hashtags for you and all of those things and it would be no problem but now there's a whole process where the expectation is that you need to like engage at least two hours before you post something and two hours after and so that means like this is how the algorithm shows that.

The fixture put a comment and then captured than you're done like actually go through your previous posts. Interact with people answer direct messages. Then post then keep interacting with people to show that you're actually looking usually the platform and instagram's going to reward that
Something's Wrong With Apple Podcasts

Sometimes as long as seventy two hours we wondered how widespread the problem was of apple. Podcasts simply not noticing new episodes so yesterday we asked you to let us know if you to have seen this issue. We don't many emails in response. So here's some of what we learned one podcast host reports around five customer complaints day. Where it's been more than twenty four hours. Their feet is valid. And then you episode is everywhere but apple podcasts and it does take some convincing customers that it isn't the podcast host fault and other publishers says episodes of taken a full forty eight hours to appear in apple podcasts. For another their record is seventy two hours now. Few have told us that. If you log into apple podcasts connect and change the frequency of your podcast in the interface that appears to get apple to rescan your feed although they do say that sometimes new episodes appear and disappear a few times before being there permanently a few hours later. And we've seen that happening to in our testing podcast which is called pulled clock now apple is seemingly aware their support team has responded to one publisher saying this was an issue on our end with our service. There's nothing your end you can do to prevent it from happening again. It shouldn't happen again but if you do notice. An episode not live on apple podcasts. After twenty four hours please reply back. Longer and more pained feedback includes one person contacting us saying i have a daily podcast and at least once a week. My episode won't release on apple podcasts. It appears everywhere else. I've written to support about it and they refresh my feed but also say allow up to twenty four hours episodes to appear. This is a daily show. A why does this only happen on apple podcasts. They can't answer this but the following day both the episode that didn't appear and the new one show up apple had better start taking podcasting seriously. They can lose their once seemingly insurmountable lead.

It's really how to win over leeds so a lot of you ask kirk said by leads from lead generation companies and what happens is that lead is sold to anywhere from two to five advisers and then you have to be the first person to call and a lot of you.
