10/30/2018

Effective sound treatment doesn’t have to be pricey. You can do it simply for almost nothing if you already have your basic podcasting equipment with you (software, microphone, etc.). My family has started a new lifestyle - traveling full time - and until we get our RV I’ve had to make do with some pretty unusual and less-than-ideal recording conditions. So I’ve had to get creative - because as they say, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” For this episode I’m demonstrating my...

For a VERY long time Android users have not had a native podcasting app - and Google Podcasts is trying to make that problem a thing of the past. I just hope these first steps that I’m going to tell you about in this episode/video are something they follow up on diligently. My hopes for this episode and its accompanying video (embedded in the show notes post below) is that people who use Android devices and have never listened to podcasts before will begin to make use of Google...

115: How to know your audience, find them, and speak to them effectively - Tommy Walker

9/11/2018
More
Every podcaster on the planet wants a bigger audience. Unquestioned. But most of us start out with a great idea for a podcast (at least we think so), grab a mic, plug it in, hit the record button, and we start talking. We don’t start where we SHOULD start - with knowledge of the audience we want to speak to. Why is that so important? To answer the question I’ve asked Tommy Walker to be my guest on this episode. Tommy has vast experience in Content Marketing (which is what podasting is) and...

114: You Just May Go Viral By Repurposing Your Podcast

9/4/2018

We’ve seen things go viral - a stupid ice cream pooping unicorn and such. And while fad-ish attention would be a boost to your show, it’s longer-lasting and more powerful if you do something intentionally to make your show go viral. In my view, one of the best things you can do to point your podcast in that direction is to learn effective ways to repurpose the great content you’re already creating. This episode is about that - repurposing your podcast - and covers ideas I’ve come up with...

8/28/2018

You hear the term “monetization” all the time in reference to podcasting - and the translation is usually “get a podcast sponsorship.” That’s a great option for shows that get thousands of downloads, right? But what about the little guys? What about those of us who have a very passionate but smaller audience? Is there a possibility that we could find an ideal sponsor for OUR show? Trevr Smithlin from Advertisecast says “Yes, it’s possible” and on this episode of Podcastification he’s going...

112: For Better Podcast Interviews Apply These Question-Asking Hacks

8/21/2018

You know - it really seems that for the average podcaster, interviews are the format of choice. It IS relatively simple to get somebody to agree to come on your show and just ask them questions. But that's not really how interviews work, is it? At least not the really GOOD ones. They're actually very difficult to pull off, especially in a way that makes them engaging for your listeners. And that really is the goal that we're shooting for. So in this episode of Podcastificatsion, I want to...

All right. Alright. In the world of podcasting, as most of you know, Apple has been the big player for a long, long, long time. One of the things that points that out to us is that worldwide, more people by a long shot own and use Android phones than Apple phones however, it's almost exactly opposite when it comes to podcast consumption through smartphones. The vast majority of podcast listeners consume their podcasts on Apple devices. Now, why is that? I believe there's one simple...

GDPR (the global data protection regulation) is now in effect. What does it mean for your podcast? That’s a very interesting question - and as with many things in podcasting, the answer is going to be “it depends.” On this episode I break down the GDPR as it relates to podcasting from MY perspective - and keep in mind, I’m not an attorney, European Union official, or compliance officer of any kind. I just read the thing and listened to a lot of people who sounded like they understood it...

103: Virtual Services Make Perfect Sense For Podcasting - Take The Plunge, with Nathan Hirsch

6/5/2018

For as long as I’ve been playing around and working on the internet, I’ve heard people touting the benefits of paying for virtual services - you know, VAs and that kind of stuff. From the first time I heard it said, I got the logic of it. Sure, it makes sense to hire someone to do the things I either don’t want to do, am not good at doing, or shouldn’t be doing from a time VS value perspective. But until this conversation, I’ve never been able to bring myself to take the leap and actually...
