E63 - Audio vs Video Podcasting - The Podcast Owner's Manual Mini Series Audio vs Video Podcasting - or both? There are a few key differences between audio and video podcasts: Production time: Video podcasts typically take longer to produce than audio podcasts because they involve creating and editing video content in addition to the audio. Equipment: Audio podcasts generally require less equipment than video podcasts. Audio podcasts can often be recorded using just a microphone and a computer, while video podcasts typically require a camera and lighting equipment in addition to audio recording equipment. Distribution: Audio podcasts are typically distributed through podcast directories like Apple Podcasts or Spotify, while video podcasts may also be distributed through platforms like YouTube or Vimeo. Engagement: Some people find it easier to engage with audio podcasts while doing other activities, such as driving or exercising, while video podcasts may require more attention and may be more suitable for watching at home or on a device with a larger screen. Monetization: There are many different ways to monetize podcasts, but video podcasts may have more opportunities for revenue through ads or sponsorships. Overall, the decision to produce an audio or video podcast will depend on your goals and resources. Both types of podcasts have their own unique benefits and can be effective ways to reach an audience. ___ ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ Podcasting Tips, How To Podcast, Start A Podcast, School, Podcast, Podcaster, Podcast Review
Shout Out Your Listener, They Just Might Respond - Daily Dave Briefing - Podcast Tips So, I host a podcast called The Podcast Editing and Support Show - this is my newest podcast where I help podcasters find a podcast editor and help podcast editors take their skills and turn it into a viable side hustle/career. When looking at my stats recently I noticed that there was a particular listener in a German city that was listening to every episode so I did what I hae encouraged you to do in the past here on the podcast - to call them out, thank them for listening and invite them to reach out to my show via my Speak Pipe link - and you can probably figure out what happened... My challenge for you on your next episode is to do the very same thing - identify a listener in a Country, State, Province and City - look for a pattern of listenership and mention them on your next episode. Let me know what happens (again) via my Speak Pipe link on my website! Excited to see this work for you and your show! Talk soon! Dave ___
Episode 263 - CO-HOST - Richard Wilmore - Make Your Day Richer by Podcasting Thrive In The SpotlightWelcome to the ultimate destination for creating top-tier podcasts and shows. With my extensive experience in producing,  curating guest appearances, video editing, and marketing, I can help you stand out in the crowded  landscape.  Personalized coaching for hosts and guests is also available, ensuring every episode or interview shines.  Let's amplify your voice and captivate your audience together! I was always a creative kid. I lived most of my childhood in an imaginary world where I played the adult role. I would spend hours by myself creating a curriculum for a classroom I made up in my head and had regular hours I kept as the grocery store owner in the abandoned building behind our house. For far too long I used my bed as a news desk and was a 13-year-old news reporter, solo anchoring the 10 pm news. I’ve always been in awe of creative people. Of people with “talent” because I never thought I had any. I was kicked out of band class in 4th grade and that’s when I stopped trying. It wasn’t until the Summer of 1997 that I realized what my superpower was. That summer changed my life. I was between 7th and 8th grade and it was when I figured out what I would do with the rest of my life. I saw a rerun of The Rosie O’Donnell Show and I could feel the energy through the tv screen. I wanted to do that. I needed to do that. That is what I must do with my life. Provide an entertaining, fun, judgment-free zone where creative people are celebrated. I wanted to make the world feel how Rosie made me and millions of others feel every day: seen, heard, and loved. I created a talk show set in my bedroom and got to work. Every day I hung a sign I made on printer paper that read “ON AIR” and for 60 minutes I pretended to talk to the biggest stars in the world. I’ve been hosting that show in one version or another (guess who had a show on TV from 2016-2022) but it wasn’t until I started working for the arts-in-health nonprofit, Hearts Need Art, that I realized my ability to connect with strangers and comfort even the most nervous person is an art form. I always say most of my paintings are hung on the inside of a garbage can and that is fine by me. I love the process of pushing shiny paint around a canvas. I love how smoothly it glides, the way the light hits it and it glistens. I love the way I don’t know anything about combining colors so there’s always a surprise at some point. What I’ve learned so far: art, in any form, isn’t about the outcome. It’s about the process. It’s about the distraction and the way it calms your mind. It’s about expression and vision and uncertainty and hope and faith and fear and grief and everything in between. Art can be loud and it can be silent. Take a breath and just be still. Be silent or let all the thoughts and feelings fly through your head and then use anything from pencils to pianos to release it. ___

Episode 256 - The Truth About Video Podcasts on YouTube, Overwhelming Expectations, Blogging and all the extras The Truth About ‘Video Podcasts’ on YouTube All the hype around video has created a situation where podcasters feel we have to do video or we’ll fall behind. That creating video is an absolute requirement for growing a podcast. All the hype around video has created a situation where podcasters feel we have to do video or we’ll fall behind. That creating video is an absolute requirement for growing a podcast. We know video is a topic that tends to divide the podcasting community – which makes it even more important that we keep talking about it. With this in mind, we surveyed podcasters to learn more about how they’re using YouTube (if at all) in their podcast strategy. Our survey sample included readers of the site and newsletter subscribers, who are largely independent podcasters, with a mixture of aspiring, early-stage, and established creators. The results were pretty interesting, to say the least. Here’s what the survey told us, what the results mean, and why you absolutely shouldn’t cave to the video pressure if it’s not something you actually want to do with your show.

Episode 255 - CO-HOSTS - Jason and John from the I Shower After Work Podcast - Podcasting As a Tool of the Trade Welcome to the I Shower After Work Podcast. Jason and John are happy you decided to join them for this wild ride! They have a deep respect for all the trades and for all of the men and women that are in this with them. The ISAW Podcast dives into every trade in the construction area. This isn’t for the office workers but for everyone in the field busting their asses, backs, and brains on the job. So come and have a laugh along the way. Hello all, I’m Jason (AKA “Canada”). I've been an electrician since 2009 and have been working in the field and in service ever since. I have been lucky enough to have seen the full scope from residential to commercial to industrial during my career with Local 292 in Minnesota and around the midwest. This has given me a broad insight of what can be seen and expected in the trades day to day. I was transferred around as an apprentice getting experience with a number of different shops and have been with my current employer since I became a Journeyman. This is a second career for me coming from the financial industry in my home country of Canada, hence the nickname, and couldn't be happier with the opportunities the trade has provided me. Not to mention the opportunities I have had since immigrating to the United States in 2006. John and I hope to bring you some insight and experience from all our years in the field and mostly a few laughs, but hope to be able to share your stories and experience as well. Tune in, shout out and let's talk about this wild career choice we all second guess on a weekly basis. Hey everyone, I’m John. I have been an Electrician for the majority of my adult life. 2023 has given me 20 years of experience in the trades. I’ve worked in a lot of the industries involved in the electrical sector. As an apprentice I spent my time doing service, light commercial, and residential wiring in the non-union area of South Dakota. As a Journeyman, I was fortunate to spend a very short time in the oil field area of North Dakota. I then spent several years as a Service Tech in South Dakota. The experience gained from being a Service tech has been unmatched by anything else I’ve done. I moved from South Dakota to Minnesota in 2013 and joined the IBEW 292 union. I have had the ability to see and do things that I would have never done in South Dakota just based on the scale of buildings. Fast forward to now and Jason and I have decided to pool our 30+ of experience to bring you an honest view of the Trades that maybe you don’t know or just bring you a laugh on one of those garbage days you’re having. Thanks again for joining us!! Slainte!! Follow ISAW Podcast on Facebook and Instagram, then send a DM to let Jason and John know what’s going on in your field, on your site, or give them some heat for being Sparkies. ___
Episode 254 - Why Podcasters Quit Podcasting - Why You Might be Close to Giving Up Why Podcasters Quit PodcastingHere is an expanded outline for a podcast episode on why podcasters quit podcasting Lack of Audience Engagement Podcasters become discouraged when they don't see meaningful engagement from their audience (e.g. comments, shares, reviews) Lack of listener feedback and interaction can make podcasters feel like they're talking into the void Without that sense of connection with their audience, the motivation to keep producing new episodes wanes Lack of Meaningful Audience Growth Many podcasters start out with high hopes of rapidly growing a large, loyal audience When audience growth stagnates or is slower than expected, podcasters can become disillusioned The constant struggle to attract new listeners and grow the show's reach takes a toll over time Struggle with Accountability Podcasting requires self-discipline to consistently produce new content on a schedule Without external accountability, some podcasters struggle to hold themselves responsible to their show The lack of structure and deadlines that come with a solo creative project like a podcast can lead to procrastination and burnout Overwhelming Time Commitment Podcasting takes a significant time investment - from planning, to recording, to editing, to promotion For some podcasters, the amount of work required becomes too much to manage alongside other commitments Feeling overwhelmed and unable to keep up with the demands of the show causes them to quit Lack of Organization Disorganized podcasters can quickly become bogged down in the logistical details of running a show Poor planning, inefficient workflows, and a general lack of structure lead to frustration and burnout Without systems and processes in place, the workload of podcasting becomes unsustainable By addressing these common pain points, podcasters can better prepare themselves for the challenges of long-term podcasting and increase their chances of sticking with it. ____
The Daily Dave - Podcasting Tips - 3 Reasons Dave Joined PodMatch So, I am trying out PodMatch - there is 3 reasons why I am giving this a solid try. Reason #1 - No Shows - I interview 20 to 30 people a week for my combined 8 podcasts. A very small percentage of these potential guests never show up for our pre-interview chat. As a full-time night shift worker, I create time in my calendar when I should be sleeping, so even if just a few people skip out on their appointments in my calendar - I am out a few hours a week, it is inconvient to my planning and a waste of time. Reason #2 - Guests can rate and review my show, but I can't do the same for my guests - I want the world to know about the amazing guests on my show - by giving out positive reviews for my guests it helps them get onto more podcasts Reason #3 - I am already considering spending some money on advertising - so instead of giving money to services that "might" gain me new listeners, I can practically guarantee that a guest will be a listener of my show - truly a guest isn't just a guest - they are a new listener - so investing in a platform like PodMatch gets me new listeners! That is a smart spend! If you want to check out PodMatch (and) you want to help support this podcast - please feel free to use the following link which may result in a small thank you payment from PodMatch to come back to this show! ___

Through the use of trending (and traditional) marketing principles, methods, and strategies, Social Jargn helps time-crunched, action-taking entrepreneurs and business owners increase lead generation and sales revenue by removing the tech intimidation and overwhelm the wild wild web often brings.It’s one thing to post on social media and have a sales funnel built; it’s a completely different customer experience when everything in your digital presence is aligned with synergy, which helps build your business to the next level. Social media marketing is an essential part of today’s world and an imperative survival tool for your overall business – it doesn’t matter if you run a small, family-owned store in Small Town USA or oversee an international company. You. Need. A. Social. Media. Presence.Industry authority, credibility, customer loyalty, new patients, continued growth, improved customer experiences, more accurate customer insight, better search engine rankings… and a lot of other “techy” and marketing components like brand recognition, website traffic, door swings, peer-to-peer reviews, etc. all translates into dollars and cents. ____
Episode 251 - Writing For Your Podcast - Blogs, Show Notes, Episode Titles, Articles - Can I Just Podcast, Do I Have To Write While maintaining a blog can be beneficial for SEO and written content, it is not mandatory to have a blog post for every podcast episode release. The focus should be on creating high-quality, engaging podcast content that resonates with your target audience. By embracing podcasting, you can tap into a growing medium with less competition and a potentially more valuable audience. However, it's important to approach podcasting with a strategic mindset, investing in quality equipment, developing a consistent content schedule, and promoting your podcast effectively across various platforms. Remember, the key to success in any content creation endeavor is providing value to your audience and building a loyal following. Whether through a podcast, a blog, or a combination of both, the goal should be to create compelling content that resonates with your target audience and helps you achieve your desired outcomes.
