In this episode I share some more thoughts on my blog post about where I was invited to speak at BlogWorld & New Media Expo NYC. If you live in the NYC area, I hope that you will consider joining me for a special meetup I’m planning for Monday, May 23rd. For more details of the meetup, please click here

The Podcasting Formula For Success:
I probably should have edited the part where I tried to read the bio of one of my Podcasting A to Z students in this episode. However, I hope that the value found in the formula that I share from those who I have seen experience similar success to what I’ve experience through podcasting.

The formula was:

  • Introduce yourself to your audience. Be Authentic and relateable.
  • Share what you know with your audience for the purpose of improving their lives.
  • Share what you are learning as you continue your journey.
  • Become the “can’t live without” source of information and inspiration in your niche field.
  • Become a sought after consultant, coach, speaker, etc.
  • Create passive income through informational products that are far more valuable than what you charge.
  • Prepare to be amazed at the opportunities that follow.

Things I mentioned that fuel the success of the formula above:

  • Passion
  • Talent
  • Determination
  • Self Discipline
  • Faith
  • Support of spouse if married.

Questions covered in this episode:

  • Mark asked if it is normal for the gain to be turned up so high when using a Heil PR-40 microphone.
  • Kirk asked which sample rate and recording settings he should use on his recorder.
  • Shawn Roberts asked if I had some thoughts on an issue he’s having with Feedburner.
  • Link to blog post mentioned by Shawn J. Roberts – http://goo.gl/KFhTe
  • Santos asked about using the LAME encoder in Audacity and how I recommend using iTunes.
  • Link to post on tagging – http://PodcastAnswerMan.com/tagging
  • Mark asked why I don’t record into multiple tracks and simply use digital recorder as a backup.
  • Danny asked about editing a .wav file imported multiple times in Adobe Audition CS5.5.

Podcasting A to Z Update
I am very delighted to tell you that the Podcasting A to Z podcasting class did get fully booked. To be sure that I have plenty of time to promote the next course, I’ll be doing the Podcasting A to Z course again in July. It will be a five week course which will begin on Monday, July 11tth.

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.
