I'm super stoked to release my first Professional Content Creation Podcast episode!
In this episode I talk about:
The Big WHY -- Why did I bother starting a podcast?
- I talk about how I fell in love with podcasting as a result of helping one of my clients start a podcast.
- I deal with the issue of hypocrites -- you know, those people who tell you that you should create content -- or more precisely, hire them to create content -- and yet don't bother to update their own blogs. If they're so convinced that content is king, they why do they treat it like a pauper on their own site?
As I launched my own podcast production services, I felt it only right to have a podcast of my own.
- I also discuss 10 good reasons for starting a podcast including the following:
- Podcasts are easier to produce than other types of content such as videos. -- Set up can be tough, but once the initial set up is done, it's much easier than video!
- Podcasting helps you build a personal connection with your listeners.
- People can listen to podcasts while they are busy doing something else such as driving or exercising.
- Podcasts help to build authority and establish yourself as an expert.
- It's easy to involve others in your podcast
- Podcasts appeal to auditory learners; not everyone learns well by reading.
- Podcasts help you to build an entirely new audience.
- A podcast adds variety to your blog.
- People have good reasons to promote your podcast.
- Podcasts are a great way to answer your audience's questions
