The Podcast Report – Devoted to the Podcasting Track of BlogWorld & New Media Expo
Earlier this month, I accepted an offer to join the BlogWorld & New Media Expo team in building an amazing Podcasting Track for their conference. Over the past few weeks, I have been on the phone with no less than 60 individual podcasters. I am delighted to say that we have filled all 24 sessions of the Podcasting Track for the June NYC event!
I made the decision that the best way to promote a podcasting track for the conference would be to have a podcast devoted to it. I am happy to share, in this episode of Podcast Answer Man, the first, full, episode of The Podcast Report, a podcast that is 100% devoted to the Podcasting Track of BlogWorld & New Media Expo.
I'm still working on getting the new podcast setup with media hosting, rss feed, and submission to the various podcast directories. However, that should all be taken care of by the end of today and the new show should be available for subscription within the next few days.
I'll update this post when I get everything secured. If you see this message after April 15th, please leave me a comment below and tell me that I forgot to come back and update the post. ;)
Consistency Vs Can't Live Without Content
Robert Duff from the Voices Among Us Podcast called in to ask about what seems to be conflicting advice that I've provided here on Podcast Answer Man.
In episode 254, I mentioned that we should be producing “Can't Live Without” content. In the past, however, I have recommended that it's important to “just get something out there” and how important it is to be consistent with the release of your podcast.
In this episode, I do my best to explain why and how we should strive to achieve both consistency AND that “Can't Live Without” content.
A Podcasting Success Story From Kickstarter
Special thanks to Elsie Escobar, a Podcast Mastermind member, for telling me about the amazing success that the Idle Thumbs Video Game Podcast had on Kickstarter.
There were looking to raise $30,000 to relaunch their podcast and ended up raising a total of $136,924. I encourage to take a look at their Kickstarter project page for a heavy dose of inspiration!
Random Plug of The Week
This week's random plug of the week goes out to the Man Cave Radio Podcast from Jesse & J.J. Lahey. If you check out their show and like it, please be sure to let them know you heard about it from The Podcast Answer Man!
