What’s the value of a new podcast subscriber? Would you trade 20, 50, 100 dollars an episode for a new subscriber? Two new subscribers?

Social-Sponsorship-graphicA podcast sponsorship can be a hard deal to negotiate and for many smaller shows it’s not likely worth the tradeoff; having to put ads in your content for a small monetary return. But what if the exchange was not money but instead something likely more important to a podcast… new listeners.

Word of mouth is still the best form of marketing for any podcast. Trading ad space on your show for an introduction to a targeted, relevant, interested group of potential new subscribers may have bigger returns and is almost certainly a much easier form of sponsorship to obtain.

I’m back in The Studio after spending a week in Las Vegas attending and speaking at New Media Expo 2014 (NMX). It was, as you could probably guess, a great time. If you’re a podcaster who enjoys meeting other podcasters and learning how to better your show, it’s hard not to have fun at NMX. Lots of great content and endless amounts of great people and conversations.NMX_2014_panel_RayDaveDaniel-1sml2

While at the conference, I spent the majority of my time talking with people I previously only knew from online interactions (twitter, G+, podcasts, etc) and meeting people I had never spoken to before. While the content at NMX (sessions) are great, you’re probably going to have the most fun  meeting people who spend most of their time in a world much like your own (they “get” you;)).

I had some other duties while at NMX, I was co-presenting a panel on How To Grow Your Podcasts From 100s to 1000s along with Dave Jackson and Daniel J. Lewis as well as recording a live Round of Podcasters’ Roundtable. [Read more…]

Adding a mixer to your podcast studio will allow your productions to grow along with your show.

As you get further along in your podcasting venture, you’ll likely want to add in more capabilities such asdesktop rack mount Skype hosts and guests, more in-studio microphones, and built in capabilities for backing up recordings to avoid loss of your audio. Having a mixer in your studio allows you to easily add in these and many more features as your skills and productions progress over time.

On this episode I explain the many ways a mixer allows you to easily expand your studio’s capabilities and what features you might want to look for when choosing your first mixer or upgrading your old one.
