In this episode of Podcasting Answer Man, I covered the following topics…

Educating Your Audience About Podcasting
Danielle from the Netherlands asked about how to train your audience to subscribe and download your podcast episodes. I believe it is important for us, as podcasters, to educate our audience about the benefits of subscribing to podcasts. However, it’s important that we do this without annoying those who are content with simply listening to our show right from the website.

I encouraged Danielle to look at these two links:

Why No Pay Per Episode Model?
John Wilkerson called in a question a long time ago about why I had not offered a pay per episode model when I was still pursuing premium content via podcast episodes. I shared that I had changed my approach to premium content in January of 2011. You can read about this change at http://gspn.tv/plus

Now I did share, in this episode, that I did test the option of the Pay Per Episode Model and even mentioned that you can still see the page I used for this at gspn.tv/single (MISSING LINK INTENTIONAL!). You can type in that url and see the page that I used to sell individual episodes back in the day.

To Blog Or Not To Blog
Chris called in and said that he had been thinking about my advice to blog in between podcast episodes. However, he said that every time he went to blog about something, he felt that it should be something that he felt should be included in the podcast. I share my thoughts on doing both!

New YouTube Channel
I mentioned my new YouTube channel that you can find at http://YouTube.com/PodcastAnswerMan. I would love it if you would take a moment of your time and subscribe to my channel.

Enrollment For Podcasting A To Z Course Now Open!
In March, I devoted my entire month to walking 20 participants of my Podcasting A to Z course through every aspect of audio podcasting. I had full confidence that the class would be well accepted and that everyone who participated would benefit greatly. However, I had never dreamed that I would enjoy group coaching as much as I did.

Never before have I felt more efficient with my consulting/coaching time. I loved the experience of helping the greatest number of people for the lowest cost during the month of March. The only thing that has come close to this has been my digital tutorial products which continue to do extremely well. However, I really love having the ability to offer an avenue where I can answer specific questions for my clients.

I’m very happy to announce that I am offering this five week Podcasting A to Z Course again during the month of May. FOR MORE DETAILS, PLEASE VISIT http://PodcastAnswerMan.com/atoz.

The Benefits of Podcasting As A Family
I ended this episode with the talk that my wife, Stephanie, did at Podcamp Nashville 2011. In the talk, she shared the wonderful ways that podcasting as a family has had a positive impact on our lives.

PODCAST CONSULTING: I'm available for one on one podcast consulting and coaching. Whether you want someone to get everything set up for you or you just need a little help along the way, I'd love to work with you. I'm able to demonstrate using screen sharing technology during our call which makes it just like I was there sitting next to you at the computer. If you are interested, email me at Cliff@Ravenscraft.org or call me at 859-757-1399.
