2 Actionable Podcast Brand Experience Tips
What do people say about your podcast when you're not in the room? What do they tell friends about your podcast and how, if you aren't in that proverbial room, can you have any influence over what they say?
Effective vs Efficient Podcasting
If you're not progressing in your podcasting as fast you think you should be, but feel busier than ever, maybe you're focussing on the wrong thing - you should focus on being effective, not just efficient.
If you’re putting together a podcast (like myself), I recommend that you check out this show. It has some really helpful information.
The Key to Success
Podcasting successfully is hard. There are a lot of steps and a lot of moving parts and a lot of things to know, not to mention whatever personal hurdles you may have. Mark breaks it all down and encourages you to do it. He makes it easy to understand without being condescending, and he sells a great product while genuinely having your best interest at heart.
The advice you get from this show and from the newsletter and blog are actually useful and cover the whole spectrum of what it means to be a podcaster.
I love seeing a new episode on my feed in the morning because I know that it’s going to be the shot I need to get motivated to work on my podcast. And it pairs great with an egg and cheese sandwich and a coffee.
I use Captivate for my show and will be adding more as my network grows. If you want to get serious about your podcast, I highly recommend doing the same.
Podcasting Mini Morsels
I have been a podcaster for about six months. I found The Podcast Accelerator around the fourth month into my journey. I love, love, love each episode and the gold nuggets I take away from each one. Mark is fun, fast paced and dynamic. I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone who really wants to rock their podcast journey. Thanks Mark for shining your light and love for podcasting the way you do.🚀👍🏼😎
