Podcast Your Way to Success Online

Podcasting and Marketing

Do you use podcasting as one of your strategies for reaching your audience with your original content?

Do you create podcasts on a regular basis?

Do you have the equipment, hardware and software, that is necessary for creating a podcast? Do you even know where to start?

If not, then I've got good news.

Andy Gray, of blackcrater.com and acongruentlife.net, is graciously going to give of his time and expertise, and show us how to create podcasts.

More details are yet to come, but if you want to do what few people are doing, if you want to execute and not just plan, and leave the planners and thinkers behind while you do, then join us. 

This will be about podcasting fundamentals and how to get started right away.

    GREAT primer on this trending topic. Really appreciate Andy spending the time to put together a simple but in-depth session. I learned everything I think I need to know.

      Awesome, Merry Ann! Hopefully your main takeaway was breaking down any barriers to getting starting, should that be something you want to pursue. Please feel free to let me know if there's any way I can support you!

    I felt like a preschooler in a class of college freshmen, with 3-4 professors who spoke Greek - and fast. But I'm glad I went. Thank you.

      Guenter, sorry that you felt like you were in the middle of a Greek-fest! But I'm glad that you joined the conversation! If there's anything I can help with, please let me know...

    Great presentation after being away from podcast production for a few years to jump back in and see and hear where podcasts are today in the landscape of content creation. In my inbox this morning from was an article in Inc. on them that wasn't nearly as comprehensive!

    Did follow a link in the article however to a "Podcast Hangout" invite from these guys : http://www.entrepreneuronfire.com/. They do daily podcasts with entrepreneurs, and make an income that they actually publish in detail. They made $225K in August for a 2 person team, starting with the launch of a single podcast.

    Great presentation by Andy last night and insightful contributions from the attendees as well. Don't forget, the deadline for taking advantage of the Web Marketing discount for the Bend WebCAM Conference is TODAY at 5:00 pm. Basically, if you're a member of this group, you should be going to this insightful conference on October 13-14. If you don't, you'll have a lot of catching up to do until the next one. Check out the speakers and topics, and register at www.bendwebcam.com. And use the code "MEETUP" to save an extra $70 off the current rate. See you there!

    Hi Group! Great talk last night. I asked about music for podcasting that Andy might know of and I also have a great source for free music if you need it. You have to be a Podcaster but it is worth it. Tons of music. http://www.musicalley.com/

    Andy made some great points and has a solid skill set to create a nice podcast. Thanks Andy.

    In terms of the overall strategy behind this type of content and getting a bit deeper into your audience, affiliate distribution, revenue models, expanding your show with guest/international producers and themed, multi-segment content that Google and search loves, let me know if there is an interest. I would be glad to share what I know and have experienced at a meetup. LarryB

      Bonny There is room. Please come and learn from Andy.

    • Bonny T.

      I would love to be there, but I made other plans when I saw the wait list. If the September one is going to be cancelled I will try to rearrange my schedule for tomorrow.

      September 17

  • Mike D.

    Andy, can you please make sure to cover some of the basics as far as equipment? What do we need to get started? Where do we go to get this? Best Buy?

    Some fundamentals would be great in addition to what you have planned.

    Thanks so much for doing this.

  • Andy G.

    I'm looking forward to the September meeting about podcasting! If you have specific questions or topics that you'd like to explore, please let me know either here or via email, and I'll do my best to fold those into the conversation.

      Hi Andy, this is great! Thanks for discussing podcasts. I recently started one so I have a number of questions. I'm interested in ways to grow my audience, examples of how people prep for an episode (outline, pre-show conversation, script, etc), when to start thinking about monetization, reasons for starting a podcast, finding underserved markets (with the intention of monetizing the show) and whether some industries are better suited for podcasting than others.

      1 · August 16, 2014

    • Andy G.

      Great list, thanks Keith!
