A highlight from Ep283: Bootstrapping Your Business And Podcast - Sarah St John
"I don't recommend going the normal route of that, where it's like the CPM model. Unless you're getting tens of thousands of downloads, the way I did it was I actually just reached out to companies directly that I thought made sense for my audience. Most hosts never achieved 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 the 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. What's up podcaster? It's your host anime Adams and I'm stoked because we've got somebody on the podcast who's got well over a hundred episodes. I think when I looked, it was like 167 episodes. So she's been really pushing hard and I know that you're probably listening and thinking, man, I want to get some more episodes out. I only have two. I only have 40. And she's got over a hundred. So we're going to learn a couple of things from her. We're going to talk a little bit about how she monetizes her podcast. And we're going to talk about some marketing. How does she grow her podcast as well? She has a company that supports podcasters that started in around 2022. And we will also find out a little bit about some of the things that she's learned along the way. Basically because she serves a lot of people like you. And so let's get started with Sarah St. John from the frugal printer. Is that what it's called? The frugal printer. Yep, frugal. And then I have a tagline building a business on a bootstrap budget. Well, let's talk about, man, there's so many places that we can go. I want to start with, let's just talk about your company. The newest company, because I know you did drop shipping and things like that before launching this that you're doing this year, helping podcasters. And let's just talk about like, how did you bootstrap it? And then we'll get more into podcasting, but I think our listener today is probably thinking, not every one of them, a lot of the listeners might be multi millionaires, who knows, but some of them need to bootstrap. So let's talk about what did you do? What do you suggest? What have you learned on your podcast? Let's just say the top three takeaways, perhaps about bootstrapping a business before we jump into podcasting. Oh, sure. So one thing is when someone's starting a business, they think that they need to go all in and spend the most money. Say, for example, they're starting a podcast. Let's just use that as an example. They'll think that they need to spend 5 grand, ten grand on the best podcast equipment that you would see in maybe a radio station. But I recommend just starting, I started mine with a hundred bucks, which was the microphone I use as an ATR 2100. There's a Samsung Q two U, these mics are like 60 bucks. USB mics. And then, you know, just having I recommend headphones, which most people have. And a computer, most people have, so really you can get started very affordably, you don't need anyway, so basically start with what you need, not what you want, I guess, maybe that's a good way to say it. Start with the basics. And then also, avoiding shiny object syndrome, I know I struggled with that and still do. I was going to call you out on that too. Yeah, oh. We should talk more about that. So what is the shiny object? What's this shiny object syndrome? And how do most entrepreneurs fall prey to it? Yeah, so that's just getting distracted with any new business idea, for example, any new type of software you could use. Some people get shiny object syndrome with equipment, new mics. For me, I tried anything and everything with business. I tried, you know, you had mentioned drop shipping. Also, affiliate marketing, blogging, a whole bunch of different things, I actually had a photography business as well. Travel agency. So I tried a bunch of different things. And it wasn't until I came across podcasting that I've basically found my niche, I guess you could say. And stuck with it for the past like three years. But I just kept anything I would hear about. Like, oh, what's the drop shipping thing? I should try that. What's this other thing I should try that? But even once you're in the niche that you're in, for me, podcasting, sometimes I'll think, oh, I could start a podcast on this. I can start one on this, or I could do this that and the other thing. But then that's just diluting my time and attention to a million different things. What I need to just focus on my one podcast and my one business, that kind of thing. Have you ever read that book?

A highlight from The 5 Questions You Should Ask Before Starting a Podcast (and maybe a sixth)
"Podcasts are a lot like lay's potato chips. It's hard to have just one and thanks to Matt rafferty from the author inside you dot com. It's time for the question of the month. And that's the question, which is if you were to start another podcast, are you thinking about starting another podcast? What is it going to be? And since we're talking about starting new podcasts, I'm going to tack on because I have a new podcast that I'm starting. And it's actually not about podcasting, which is hard to believe. But I'm going to give you the 5 questions you should ask before starting another podcast. And I actually just thought of a 6th one you should ask. Hit it, ladies. With Dave Jackson podcasting since 2005, I am your award winning Hall of Fame podcast coach Dave Jackson thanking you so much for tuning in if you're new to the show. This is why I help you plan launch and grow your podcast and today, if you are new to the show, it's the last episode of the month. And so we'll be doing the question of the month, which is talking about, hey, are you thinking of starting a second show, and so on that, I'm also going to talk about 5 questions you should ask yourself before starting any show first, second, third, 15th, whatever it is, my website is school of podcasting dot com. I do have a little bit of housekeeping right now. If you go to school with podcasting dot com slash listener, that will apply a coupon so you can sign up for either a monthly or yearly subscription and of course that comes with a 30 day money back guarantee, but that coupon has gone up by 5% and will be available for the next as I look at my website two days, 19 hours, 48 minutes and 29, 28, 27, seconds. So you can, again, go to school of podcasting dot com slash listener to get a little extra savings. And if you're wondering, hey, Dave, why don't you do one of those like 60% off things? I've done that twice. I did 50% off. And in my travels, I want to work with people who really want to podcast who are ready to do it and do it well. And people that only join because it was cheap didn't actually do anything. And I like to work with people I work one on one with people. I do a lot of coaching. We have our community, and I want people that really want to podcast. So I don't do that anymore. I do. Decent size. Kind of discounts, but not giant ones. And the other thing I wanted to answer, which is Dave, that's kind of cool, how did you do that? It is a thing called wiser notification. I will have a link to this particular tool if you go out to school with podcasting dot com slash 8 5 5. That is something I picked up on Black Friday. I also picked up a tool called reverberate, and I talked about this on ask the podcast coach. So if you listen to that show, I apologize for the rerun, but I'm going to play you a two quick clips. One with and one without. And if you're wondering, no, this does not have an affiliate program. I'm not talking about it because I have a potential to make money here. I just heard this was like, um. So this is what it sounds like. And to me, it reminds me of somebody who's using either the built in laptop microphone or something like a blue Yeti, and they haven't learned how to use it right. So Melanie, as a mom of two kids that go into this school. What are some of the big changes you've seen in your case since they started? And you basically run the plugin, so you could run this into audacity or Hindenburg or whatever you're using. And you go, hey, listen to this. And then it basically he says, this is what I recommend. You do to get rid of that reverb sound and it sounds like this. Oh, Melanie, as a mom of two kids that go to the school. What are some of the big changes you've seen in your case since they started? So obviously that sounds better. And it's never going to sound as good as if somebody had actually recorded it correctly, but it definitely makes it more listenable. And what I have found is when you have audio like that for me, where really notice it is when I'm in the car and a car makes noise and here in Ohio as I recorded it, it was raining today and so the tires were making more noise and I was really surprised not only did I have to trimp the volume because the tires were louder, but because there was more background noise, it's the difference of sounding like you're in the room with somebody talking and having someone in your head, it's just that different. And so when you're in the room with them and there's more noise, it reminds me when I go to these different conferences and a lot of times I'll be working a libs and booth in the vendor area and they'll have a stage in there and I never quite get that because all of a sudden I'm trying to talk to someone and there's already background noise because it's a giant room full of vendors that are talking about their products. So you've already got a general murmur and then they add a stage where somebody is talking and you're just like, ah it wasn't hard enough to talk to somebody. Now I've got to talk over somebody with a microphone and it's kind of that same thing. Okay, now I have to hear your podcast over the sound of the car and outside and then it starts raining and you're like, I'm really having a hard time hearing that. So it is normally a $100 for that particular plugin and I got it for 70. I will have to go back and find the coupon code I used and I will put that out at school of podcasting dot com slash 8 5 5. Now why you might want to use that versus descript studio sound which right now is still the miracle worker of all kind of plugins is descriptive a monthly fee. Speaking of description they did come out of beta with their new version so I am going to start working on making a course on descript, it'll take me a while to get the ins and outs and everything like that, but that was other good news that we had. So that's just a quick peek at what I did on Black Friday this year. Growing up, did you feel like nobody would listen to you? I mean, was this you and your dad growing up? But daddy is not there. What's the matter with you? You're not there. You asked the high school guidance counselor about going to Harvard. No, no, no, no. And he suggested clown college and then you got married. And of course children. Kevin, if you're not in bed by the time I count to ten, I'm gonna it's easy to see how all of life's experiences have impacted your thoughts about starting a podcast. And the school of podcasting community will help you plan launch and

A highlight from Writing An Audio Essay
"Hello and welcome to the sound school podcast from PRX and transom. I'm rob Rosenthal with the backstory to great audio storytelling. Earlier this year, Stephanie foo published an incredibly honest book about the trauma she suffered as a child from her abusive parents. The book details the complex PTSD she's lived with for many, many years. She named the book, what my bones know, a memoir of healing with complex trauma. I read it. I got to page 12, put the book down and I said to my wife, I'm not sure I'm up for this. The story is brutal in parts. And I was only reading it. I did finish the book, and what's not brutal, what's inspiring, actually, is the story of how Stephanie steadfastly worked to overcome the disorder. I wrote her afterwards and told her by the end of the book, I pictured her as one of those Olympic weightlifters, holding a zillion pounds over their head, sweating, grimacing, but also triumphant. There's a section of what my bones know that had me thinking, wait, where have I heard this before? And then I remembered Stephanie produced an essay for this American life about her family when she was a reporter on the show. The essay is called the favorite, and just like the book, it's incredibly powerful and direct. In fact, when I first heard the story, I thought, wow, she's really laying it out there. I added a lot of anxiety about it, sure. Definitely. And I questioned a lot if it was the right thing to do. That's what Stephanie told me when I interviewed her for sound school, which was called how sound back in 2016. It's been a few months since her book was published, but I thought, oh, why not? Let's feature this archive episode of sound school with Stephanie to let you know about the book. And because what Stephanie has to say about writing personal essays is especially insightful. Even though she hadn't written very many when she was working at this American life. And before that snap judgment. I just don't think I just don't think of myself as an essayist on the radio. That said, when she worked at snap judgment, she wrote and produced three essays, including one about her dad. About me trying to burn a book that he had gotten, which was how to curb your out of control teenage daughter. She's thinking of parenting your out of control teenager, but either way, she took a match to it. As for the favorite, she initially pitched the idea while she was at snap. But as I was pitching it in the story meeting, I started breaking down in tears and just like losing it. And so Glenn told me, you know what? Maybe this is a story that you can do eventually, but you're way too close to it now and you shouldn't do it right now. Why do you need distance? I think that you just don't often know what your story is while you're living your story. Because you're in the middle of it and you don't see what the real takeaway of this experience is going to be. Basically whenever anybody starts crying when they pitch me something, which is more often than you would think, I'm always like, you know what? Wait, write down everything, record everything you're going through. But tackle this when you can get a bird's eye view of what this story really means to you in your life. Time passed, Stephanie got a bird's eye view of the story. And one day, she was sitting in a story meeting at this American life talking about an episode in production called need to know basis. And I was like, oh right, that whole time that my that time that my whole family lied about why they spoiled me growing up. And so I just brought it up at this pitch meeting and Ira actually. I didn't think you would be anything. I just blurted it out, just word vomit. But he actually glommed onto it, and wanted to know more. And then when I mentioned that, you know, there was actually a tape of this moment happening of me interviewing my great aunt about this. He was like, come on, this is me to be a radio story. And it is. I talked to Stephanie more about the favorite after we listen. When I was in the 7th grade, I got an assignment to write a one page essay about my favorite place in the world. I wrote ten pages single spaced about Malaysia. I moved to America from Malaysia when I was three years old, but the rest of my family still lives there. We went back a lot when I was little. And so I remember crawling under ferns and hibiscus in the yard, catching mods the size of my head, playing hide and seek during monsoon storms. But in that essay, I didn't write about the main reason why I loved Malaysia. I loved Malaysia most because Malaysia loved me. I was the favorite child. And not even the extra serving of cake kind of favorite. The kind of favorite where everyone would straight up say at family gatherings. Oh, Stephanie's the best. My aunt would tell their children, why can't you be more like her? Then, they'd buy me all the toys I wanted. And the person leading this campaign was the matriarch of our family. My dad's aunt. We all called her auntie. Every time I walked into a room, auntie would reach for me and coup hoi hoi, she's a well behaved, she's so nice. She saved me all the best pieces of the chicken, taught me mahjong, asked only me to sit on her lap on the big papa San as she taught me songs in Chinese. The other adults fell in line to say something nice about my eyes, my dimples, I remember I had this cousin who wanted to be an artist when she grew up. She filled up an entire bookshelf with her sketches. I showed up and started doodling and everyone flocked around me telling me I had natural talent. My cousin stormed off and didn't talk to me for days. I was proud to be auntie's favorite. Because even though she was under 5 feet tall, with Coke bottle glasses,

A highlight from Ep281: This Could Happen If You Dont Bring Value - Liam Leonard
"Liam Leonard from lions cove. You know, the lines cove should have had a double L also. Liam Leonard from lions, I don't, I can't think of it. But it's good to have you on the podcast as we record this. You've published nearly a hundred episodes, which is pretty remarkable. So where I want to start out is what you wanted the podcast to do for you and if it's done that yet through almost a hundred episodes. Yeah, that has definitely changed over time as we've gone through our process with the podcast, but I appreciate you having me on the show Adam. I wish I had more double and triple L to be up just up to par with the triple-A, not quite there, but we can aspire to be like you. You are a triple L, Liam Leonard lions. There you go. All right, well, yeah, so what did you think that the podcast would do for you? And has it done it? Yeah, so originally when I started the podcast, the premise was that it was going to be all about customer acquisition for us we work with high net worth individuals. And the idea is that we would talk to people who had a sphere of influence within high net worth individuals, they would hear the show, they'd be interested, and they would essentially come to us as the business. Great in theory made sense. We came up with a topic that was in the financial space that we obviously offer our services in. But didn't have any clients that ever came from the podcast in the first 30, 60, 90, 180 days. And so eventually there was a decision point that came. That said, hey, do you continue the podcast? Because it's not meeting your initial objective, or do you pivot? Do you think about it differently? So what I did is I started to think about the podcast instead of as a customer acquisition. And as more as a building my network and exploring my natural inquisition into learning more about what people are doing in their space and what they're great at and how it ties into the financial space. And so it became much more a personal objective for me. Where it was, how do I meet really awesome people? How do I approach it? Be present and try to learn as much as possible from these people who have been very successful, like yourself. We recorded a show together for our show, right? And so those are the elements that we've transitioned to. As time has gone on, we're in a phase now where we're looking to potentially reposition it again to bring essentially tie it into the business sense in order to do that. There's a lot of work that I needed to do personally to figure out, okay, what's my articulated as zone of genius? Where's that area that I can have had value to others? Because when I started the podcast, I wasn't thinking about that. It was all about selling my own product or services. It wasn't about adding value to people. And I think when you start with adding value to people, that customer journey that you can put together is a lot more organic is a lot more meaningful to the listenership to the guests to everyone and so we're in the process of doing that now. That is we could be done with a whole interview today. That was like drop your mic. Start with adding value. So you're probably going through your second change into the third formation of what you want the podcast to be all about. In the very beginning, I want to interview people so I can get some customers. So you wanted to interview the right people that either could be your customers or more likely they know a lot of your perfect customer. And after 60, 90, a 180 days later, you kind of decided, hey, let's pivot this and enjoy it. Let's just be there, have these good conversations, learn from it, have good connections, networking, meeting with people, and right now you're saying, you know what? Let's figure out how to add value and you said something and it was awesome. If you start with that adding value, if you go there first, everything else happens. And I always think of what's that guy's name. It's funny. I forget his name every time. I'm going to put a sticky note on my computer. Zig Ziglar, I think, said, if you'll have everything in this life that you want, if you help enough other people get what they want. And this is you rethinking and saying, how can I just be of service? How can I just serve the other people in this world that need me that need my message, give and give and give? And you understand that it'll come back to you as well. And I think that's awesome. That's what I try to do on my show. That's what the listener should do on their show. So that was really, really big. In your hundred ish episodes that you have published as we record this. What have you learned about interviewing, finding guests asking the right questions, what have you learned? And maybe share a story about a mistake that you made along the lines of finding guests or interviewing guests. Yeah, so at the beginning, I was very scripted in terms of my approach and how I went about things, right? Because there was a clear outcome that I was trying to drive and I was trying to force everyone into this box. Here's you, but I want you to talk about a, B, C, D, and then E is the plus up or the sale into my ecosystem. And it felt a force, right? It didn't feel organic. It didn't feel like we were getting the true insights. I didn't feel like I was learning. And so the approach was all wrong.

A highlight from How Gary Arndt Adopted The Audience Growth Strategy From the Movie Industry - And It's Working
"Again will potentially increase your Google traffic. It's just one of those things that I think people think, oh, I have to use the website from my media host. And I'm here to tell you, no, that's there for places like schools that don't have a website and misses Smith just needs it for a third grade because she's teaching podcasting. So if you have a website, go into whoever your media host is, make sure that under your information for your podcast, you're appointed at your website and the episodes in my opinion should be pointing back to your website where you have the same information. Likewise, those words on your page are going to also attract Google. So it's just a quick tip that I start to see more people just pointing at the media host and I'm like, that's you're kind of missing the boat. When you have your own website. Now, if you need a domain name, you can get those from cooler websites dot com or namecheap. If you need a website for your podcast, I actually teach people how to build one, go to learn pod page dot com and you can actually build a website using a tool called pod page. But you're missing out some traffic, you're hindering your Google juice and I just wanted to pass that along. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Before Gary was a podcaster in North America, Gary was voted travel photographer of the year three times. You can check out all his photography at everything everywhere dot com. He spent a decade on the road, just going round and round and round to all different parts on the globe. And the number of followers he had on social media was in the 6 figure range and then the pandemic hit, the travel industry was obliviate and Gary lost everything. What did he do? He decided to double down on his podcast. And Gary was willing to come on the show and share his insights. You said, well, I'm going to double down on this whole podcast thing. And I think the first myth I want to bust here is, okay, so you got a really successful website and you had all sorts of followers on social media. So it was just a piece of cake to start a podcast because they all just followed you over, right? No, they did not. We're going to hear how Gary creates a show and how he grew his audience right after this. All you know how I like to throw a curve ball and look, you know the drill, school of podcasting dot com slash listener. It's a coupon. It's the 30 day money back guarantee. It's Dave in your pocket. You know the drill. But what I want to do here in November is try something different. I want to talk to the person who's been listening to me for a while. You're probably that person that comes up to me at events and goes, I just want to say thank you for everything you've done in the space. And now that you stop to think about it, you go, you know, he has helped me grow my network. He's helped me grow my downloads. He helped me actually start my show. I probably wouldn't have started the show except for Dave and he's helped me grow my downloads and for whatever reason. You never joined the school of podcasting community. While I'm here to say that here's a way that you can say thank you for all the value I've delivered to you. You can give some of that back. By simply pointing your phone or your computer at school of podcasting dot com slash thanks. That school of podcasting dot com slash thanks. And in case you're trying to write this down in the first pen didn't have any ink, school of podcasting dot com slash thanks. It's easier than ever to follow the show. Simply text the word follow to 833-204-4045. That's follow to 8 three three two zero four four zero four 5. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So it was just a piece of cake to start a podcast because they all just followed you over, right? No, they did not. That's not how it worked. Because for starters, a lot of those people were not following me for podcast reasons. They're following me to look at pretty pictures. And that's why they were there. And the other thing is, social media doesn't convert that well for podcasting. Which is kind of just a fact that I've heard other people say other big podcasters like Jordan harbinger. And I kind of figured this out myself. I eventually I was posting every show to Twitter and Facebook and then I just stopped doing it and it did nothing. To my downloads. And the reason I believe this is true is because when you're launching a show by all means talk about it on social media because you're letting the people who follow you know that you have the show. But once they know about it, they know about it and they have made their decision whether they are going to follow and listen to your show or not. And then all you're doing is annoying them by mentioning every single episode. The only place I have found any traction on social media is TikTok. And the reason is because TikTok will show your videos to people who don't follow you. So it allows you to expand it. But even then, conversion on TikTok is not great. I had a video the other day, like two days ago, so far it's gotten over 30,000 views, which is pretty good for me. And that converted to maybe 30 clicks, I was gonna say, 'cause that's the thing is their algorithm will kind of pooh pooh you if you put a link to something else, at least that's what I've been told. So the hardest part is how do I get people off of TikTok over to check out my podcast? How are you approaching that? I just have a link in my bio and I use a charitable link so I can track how many people click on it. So I have a separate charitable link for Twitter, Facebook, even Pinterest, everything. But TikTok by far gets more clicks, but it's still not a lot. Because I hear a lot of podcasting gurus that they social media social media got to have the clips and everything. And that really is of limited use. It really is not the way you grow a show. And if you look at what the big networks do. The 1°, the iHeart podcast, all them. That's not what they're relying on for building audiences. They're relying on promoting their shows through other podcasts. And I have seen many large independent podcasters say the same thing and having done it myself. I can confirm that is really what works. Do you remember how many downloads you were getting when you first started out? The first month, so I started my show July 1st, 2020, and I picked that date just to make the accounting easy because it was the beginning of the third quarter. I got 6200 downloads my first month. I am now getting a little under 30,000 downloads a day. Wow. I'm getting close to a million downloads a month. And total I've had over 8 million downloads, I think. How come the show been going? Under two and a half years. Wow, that's impressive. A lot of work. It's a daily show. That's the other thing we should point out. But it's a 7 day a week show, not a 5 day a week show, and it's a scripted show. So I'm basically writing a 2000 word term paper every

A highlight from 381 Jess is Viral Again
"Hello, everyone. Welcome to episode. Three 81. I am Jessica come from and with me is always my bestest friend in the whole world, Elise Escobar. What? Don't you even? Okay, I deserve that from the last you did. I did. I messed up your name last time. I did. I did. Please refer back to episode three 80 for the inside joke. Yeah. Apparently, she said, what a great friend I was and then called me Jennifer. 'cause that was I know. That was the guest. That was but we're happy to see you check it out. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Now we're doing a we were in the midst of a quiz for LC and old radio. Because every time we record, she says, say hello, Jessica and I say, hello, Jessica. But there was a very famous duo that used to do that on their radio show and the first the first radio show. So I'm guessing by your sarcastic comment like where was I when I was a kid that you did not in fact listen to old radio shows like whatever there was Paul Harvey or I have zero idea who that is. I was in El Salvador. I was until I was 9, and then after I came to this country, I didn't speak English. Yes. I didn't speak English. I mean, I spoke some English, but not to the point where I'm going to be listening to talk radio. So we lived about an hour from my grandparents and every Sunday morning we would go 40 minutes down the road to have brunch with my one grandmother and then we would stay there and then go have dinner with my other grandmother and then drive 40 minutes home and on the 40 minutes home my father would play talk radio. Normally parole Harvey, but the famous couple that said that did that trick was George and Gracie, George Burns and Gracie Allen. That's right. And he would go say hello, Gracie, and she would go, hello. Hello, Gracie. I know. They were so cute. I miss Paul Harvey too. Paul Harvey, corte. Okay, anyway, today we have a bunch of things to discuss. Since we already went down one tangent, what's next on the list? Thanksgiving? No, you wanted to talk about something at the beginning here. Oh, the first tangent is that my son's home today from school because I just couldn't make him go. He said he was sick, but he's not. I know he's not. Listen, I did everything other than yell and scream at him because, first of all, I just don't have it in me to yell and scream. Before school, it just creates a terrible school day. And it means he'll go there and feel like a piece of shit in the misbehave all day because he feels bad about himself. So nobody needs that. I could just tell he didn't want to go. He said he had a headache. He said he was nauseous. He's clearly fine. I tried bribing him. I tried telling him what a great time he was going to have and what a great job he's doing and how smart he is. I tried the Jewish guilt thing where I was just like, all the other kids have to go to school and you don't have to go and how would you feel if your Friends were staying home and you had to go? And then I tried looking him dead in his face and said, you know, are you doing the right thing? Is this what a good person would do? Nothing worked. He still here. I'm either going to get arrested for truancy because I'm keeping my kid out of school or he's going to have to repeat or I don't even know. I don't even know. It's November. I don't think the kid has had a full week of school yet. I mean, for various, most of those reasons are for Jewish holidays. But if anyone has some ideas as to how I can get this kid to school, he's 8, he's in second grade. He is very smart. I doubt he's falling behind, but also he doesn't belong here. So like he belongs in school, and it's private school, so I'm freaking paying for it. So, you know, I'd like him to go. He's just going through stuff. Because this weekend, he did some stuff where he keeps in a phase right now where he saves everything. At first it was because of the iPod. I think I told you about that where he cracked an iPod. We went and replaced it and then he had like a memorial service for the old one because it was his friend. Now everything is his friend and he's saving food trash and sticks from the playground and I don't even know what to do with him. He was sleeping in the bed by himself. He's regressed there too, where he comes in at like 11 league. It's a time for me to come in yet. He's having separation anxiety and, I don't know, I think he's cracking. I think he's like, I don't know if he's having a nervous breakdown, but like I've never seen a kid crack, but if I were, it would be this when I'm watching right now. I do not have any advice I go. Great, thank you for playing. Sorry. I have, yeah, I do not know what to say to you because yeah. It's very frustrating. I don't know, yeah. Today's nail polish color is kiss my asteroid by mooncat. I've done a terrible job as you can see. But that's typical. That's typical. It'll come off in the shower. Anyway, nice. All right, so send your feedback to how to get my kid to school to feedback as she podcast. Yes, please. Dot com. Help Jess with
A highlight from Ep280: Direct Your Business Clients To Your Show - Mark Willis
"Want you to be able to make income with your podcast. It should not be taking money out of your pocket. Today, we are going to be talking about a little bit of things. Actually, it's interesting because Mark Willis is a financial guy. So he's got his book. You've got some cool books behind him. That you might not be able to see like talking about banking on yourself. He helps other people try to do those things. He's had a podcast for a while and I don't know 246 episodes ish as we're recording. And well over a hundred ratings and reviews, that puts him higher than the top point 6%. That means higher than the top 1%. So because he's at that hundred plus, he's learned a few things and I want you to gain anything that he has and he's promised to deliver for you the new podcaster to make sure you get some value. His bios in the show notes. The link to his podcast, which is called not your average financial podcast, is also in the show notes would be grateful if you checked it out and even gave him a rating and review that he deserves. And let's get started. What's up, Mark? How are you? Hey, I'm glad to be on, man. It's good to have you. And I'm looking forward to getting your experience and extracting everything that you've learned over let me just pull this up as we're recording 261 episodes. Oh my gosh. I will tell you, I think that's more than I have today. Might either be persistence or insanity, I'm not sure which, maybe a little of both. So I want to start here, Mark, why did you even start a podcast? I'm curious, who told you to do it? How long have you been thinking about it? Why you did it? What you thought you'd get out of it? These are kind of like my thoughts. And I think that the listener would probably want to hear, why did you start it? What were you thinking? And then later, maybe we could talk about if you're getting the value that you wanted to get from having the podcast. So why'd you start it? Sure. It was a moment of laziness to be quite candid with you. I was getting the same questions asked of me. We worked with clients all over the country all over the world, and we deal in very not so average financial strategies as the title of the podcast reveals. And to be honest, that brings a lot of unique questions and objections and just the typical exploration phase of most potential clients and existing clients. They're having regular and reasonable questions as they engage their financial plan that we implement for them and set up for them all across the country. And so it was those regular questions we were having that brought up the questions of, hey, how do we make this financial plan work? And so every episode for the first ten, 20, 30 episodes, was how do you overcome a particular objection? And yeah, so my idea of laziness was how do I just answer this question this repeating recurring question one time in a really thoughtful thought provoking way that brings value to the listener and then when my client or potential client asked me the same question again, I'm ready to go. I've got that episode ready to rock. Awesome. I'm going to share something. I'm going to basically talk to you, Mark, but I really want the listener to hear this also. I'm taking notes in the chat box of the zoom. And it has distracted mark once or twice. I wouldn't say you could tell, but I could tell that he was looking at it and being like, is and I'm trying to tell me something. Well, this is how I take my notes and what I like about using the note area, like the chat area, is that it gets saved. And so my team that does the editing and post production, they see everything that I was thinking along the way. And I think it helps them to be able to pick and choose. So your episodes, everybody give Adam a 5 star review just for that because that and you're incredible episode about getting your best number one top number one rated guest by reaching out to their Facebook friends that you did a few episodes ago in the feed. You have such great creative ideas. People need to be putting you up on their 5 star review. Leave a big comment. Leave a big review for Adam because he puts a lot of energy into his solo episodes. So anyway, I'm not just blowing sunshine here, man. You do a great job on your show. I really grateful for you saying that. It makes me feel really good inside. Now we like each other better. And our banter is gonna be even more perfect. That's good language. I'm supposed to say more perfecter. That's right. That's right. So I'm gonna repeat a couple of things that Mark said. Unique questions objections. He had laziness. So he's thinking to himself all of my clients want to know a few different things. They're always curious about a couple of things. They're asking me a couple of things. I'm kind of getting tired of saying the same stuff. Why don't I perfect the response? Put it in an episode and I could say to answer your question, go to episode ten. To answer your question, go to episode 30. I did that as well for my real estate podcast that I ended up selling almost three years ago. And I had this podcast and I wanted to kind

"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.

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.
