PQT – Naming Your Podcast with Dave Jackson

Naming your podcast is kind of a big deal. Yet some people might just jump into it without ever asking anyone if the name is any good or more importantly, makes any sense? I know I did, oops.

Podcast Quick Tips

Yes, some podcasters will start a podcast with a name that tells you nothing about the content and do quite well but wouldn’t you rather have a show with a name that told everyone who heard it, in just a few words, knew exactly what that podcast was all about? Hint: your answer should be yes;) [Read more…]

TPS Ep. 051 – Back to Podcasting Basics (Part 2 of 2)

[See Part 1 First] Continuing where I left off in part one of this two part series, I wrap things up with a discussion about the remaining basic pieces you’ll need to start a successful podcast. I’m defining a successful podcast here as a podcast that starts off with all the core elements in place so that you don’t have to go back and fix the foundation of your show in the future. Often times, mistakes are made when setting up a podcast (understandably due to excitement and the rush to get started) that will often require an entire rework of the core elements of your podcast.

PQT – Promote Your Podcast by Notifying the People and Products You Mention

Promote your podcast by contacting the people and or companies you mention in your show. Many times those people will respond by passing on your content to their community.

Whether it’s through a simple tweet or facebook post, your content gets exposed to infinite amounts of new listeners when it’s passed on by someone else. And typically when you are mentioning someone or something on your podcast, it’s something you are a fan of, use, or plan to buy. Therefore the person who you are most likely speaking kindly about or the product which you use and love is great promotion for them or their company.

In most cases when you let someone know that you are talking highly about them or their product, they have every motivation to pass that on to their community. You see it on the backs of books and website testimonials, people like it when you talk about them and their products.

So let them pay you back with a retweet, a facebook wall post, or maybe even a mention on their own show. Market your show and get your podcast in front of hundreds of new listeners just by making someone else aware that you talked about them.

PQT – Provide Feedback to Podcasts

Today I’m asking the listeners of Podcast Quick Tips to submit their very own Podcast Quick Tip that I can play on the show. If you have a 2 to 4 minute tip about how to podcast that you would like to share on this show, please submit that tip by calling 925-567-3335 or better yet, send in your audio tip via email at Ray@ThePodcastersStudio.com.

This is not only a request for content and a way for me to promote your show, creating valuable content for my own show but also a great tip to podcasters who want to get the word out about their own show. If you have some helpful feedback that you can provide to another podcast that you listen to, whether that podcast is in your niche or not, send in your audio or written feedback and likely you will get the chance to be exposed to that show’s audience.

Not only will the podcaster appreciate your insight and feedback but you could reap the benefits of having another show promote and market your own show.

TPS Ep. 025 – Learn How to Podcast Like a Pro – A Presentation Given at Podcamp Philly 3

A presentation I gave at Podcamp Philly 2009 about how to get the skills of a professional podcaster.

I talk about everything from audio to video. How to learn the skills needed to produce high quality podcasts on the level of a professional such as better audio, proper compression rates, better video, lighting and many other tools that some of the today’s best podcasters are using to produce successful shows, including the kind that make money.

Since many of the people who come to podcasting don’t have a background in audio and video production (including myself) there has to be a place to learn all of the skills without spending too much money or attending years of schooling.

This episode is an overview of all the elements needed to produce top quality podcasts without having a “studio” budget. Learn where and how I learned to podcast and why producing quality content is just as important as engaging content.
