You don’t need “fancy pants” gears to get started with a podcast.
Focus on various podcast platforms. iTunes is just 8 out of 20 people. What about the 12?
His keys to success:
- Work on getting your small army – family and friends
- Get them to get those ratings and downloads to be able to raise rankings and people find you.
- Build your army with them.
- Open up a real conversation.
- Be a real human being.
- He created a show that wasn’t yet out there.
HIs podcast has a precise goal. Not just a rambling interview.
Understand who you’re talking to understand how you can help them. Otherwise, you only create a generic product.
There are enough generic products out there. You have to stand out!
He has huge passions for teaching, entrepreneurship, and technology. He knew podcasting bootcamp was the next best step.
The podcasting bootcamp started with seeing:
- Who is my avatar?
- What do they need?
- Why is it not answered better?
As a podcaster, you need to figure out:
- who you’re gonna talk to
- what type of podcast you should or can create
- then you can dive into the technological part
“A great show comes from resonating with your audience.”
Just before you turn on that mic and start speaking:
- remember who you’re talking to
- talk WITH them and not AT them
Habits every entrepreneur should have:
- the habit of shipping
- the habit of doing what scares you
- the habit of focus
Focus has revolutionized his life.
What keeps him from giving up:
- surrounding yourself with like-minded people
His present challenges: Segueing into a paid model that helps fund the effort of putting it out there
- How to start profiting
- How to market beyond the new & noteworthy
- How to build a brand
He hopes to be remembered as someone who helped people bring more freedom into their lives.
His final thoughts:
“Be happy for those doubts… use that as a signal telling you that you’re in the right way, instead
of a signal telling you’re in the wrong one.”
