    Subscribe Is Gone (Apple only, so far)

    Subscribe Is Gone (on Apple only, so far)Podcast tech is changing all the time, so we shouldn't be surprised when Apple makes a change (unannounced, as is often the case).
    What's the latest change?
    Apple's newest version of the iOS app (14.5 update) is now MISSING the "Subscribe" button. It also has no "Follow" button (which we've previously thought was coming).
    What users will see now when they click into a podcast they are considering is a button that says "Latest Episode."
    When they click that button......what happens? It plays the LAST 60 SECONDS of your most recent episode.
    Did you get that?
    Your MOST RECENT episode is going to be the Costco Sample for potential listeners. That's a big deal.
    It's easier for listeners to check out your show than ever before... but Apple is DICTATING how they do that... through the most recent episode.
    So you should consider if what you're doing during that first 60 seconds is...
    compelling
    intriguing
    entertaining
    interesting
    provocative
    alluring
    helpful
    If it's not, this is a good time to make a change.
    What kind of change might you make?
    START WITH A TEASER
    My episode this time started with what I'd call a "teaser." It's a creative way of introducing the topic.
    You can do this like I did, with unique or interesting music underneath.
    You could add a quote or clip from your guest that highlights the most interesting or compelling aspects of what they had to share.
    You could tell a story from your experience that illustrates the topic of your episode in an engaging way.
    There are so many ways to do it.
    What should NOT be in the first 60 seconds?ADS GO SOMEPLACE ELSEAdvertisements or sponsor spots should NOT be in the first 60 seconds of your episodes from now on.
    Think about it...
    If YOU were a new-podcast-searcher and found a show you thought might be interesting... and you clicked that "Latest Podcast" button... and you hear an...
    ADVERTISEMENT for the first 60 seconds...
    what would YOU think?
    What would you do?
    What would you wonder about that podcast and its creator?
    Long, boring, canned intros should be movedYou may feel you still need the canned intro you've been using. You know, the radio-announcer-gal who says the same blah-blah-blah at the beginning of every one of your episodes.
    That's OK... but don't put it within that first 60 seconds.
    You want to use that 60 seconds of audio real estate to its fullest potential.
    Give value.
    Hook your listeners.
    Build interest.
    Promise something.
    Make them WANT to keep listening.
    I don't think I've ever heard a canned intro that has made me WANT to keep listening.
    Have you?
    Stay tuned... this is likely not over!Apple is well-known for making unannounced changes like this, and then tweaking the change for weeks, months, sometimes years.
    So keep your eyes open. This feature is likely not going to stay exactly like it is.
    I'll do my best to keep you informed.

    152: Niche power, Professional Help, And Paying The Price, with Mark Goldman

    152: Niche power, Professional Help, And Paying The Price, with Mark Goldman

    Podcasting success comes in all shapes and sizes... and in any niche area you can think of.
    This episode is a case-study of sorts and focuses on a very specific niche podcast and the impact its had on it's creator — Mark Goldman.
    Mark is an accountant, and a recruiter for the accounting industry. His businesses help others succeed in the accounting field and help companies in need of a good accountant, find one.
    So why did Mark think it was a good idea to start a podcast for the recruitment side of his business? Because he was looking for a way to make his voice heard in the industry and serve his audience of incoming accountants and business clients.
    But here's the funny part, Mark barely knew that podcasts even existed when he was introduced to the idea. When he found out about it, did some homework, and realized it might be a good content creation option for his company, he dove in.
    In this conversation, Mark shares his mistakes, his frustrations, his dashed expectations, and what he's learned along the way. And as powerfully as any guest I've had on the show, Mark drops some gold nuggets about mindset, financing your podcast, revenue generation, and more.
    You're going to love Mark's unassuming manner and humble demeanor. But more than that, you're going to love the powerful concepts and mindsets he has to share about making your podcast a success, even if it's in a very small niche.
    Take the time to listen. You can thank me later.

    Monetize Your Podcast in 100s of Ways, with Dave Jackson

    Monetize Your Podcast in 100s of Ways, with Dave Jackson

    It's not every day you get to have a "Podcast Hall of Fame" inductee on your podcast. But it's fun when it happens! In this case, it's because Dave Jackson is such a fun guy.
    He's known as "The Podcast Coach" and has earned the title since he's been podcasting since way back in 2005 and has published more podcasts of his own than most people have lived. OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but not much of one.
    Podcast Monetization Is THE TopicThis episode, Dave and I are talking about how to monetize a podcast — and we're not primarily referring to ad revenue when we say that. There are many, many, many ways to create a revenue channel accompanying your podcast and the limits are only as small as your level of creativity.
    Join us as we chat about the many examples included in his new book, "Profit from Your Podcast: Proven Strategies to Turn Listeners into a Livelihood." It's exactly what it sounds like.
    This episode introduces a series of episodes I'll be producing off and on over the next couple of months talking with podcasters who have approached the monetization issue from a variety of different standpoints. Some of them are in Dave's book. Others are not.
