Presentation Description

We’ll cover a “brief” overview of the history of podcasting and show you how this is not just a “fad” given the growth in the last several years. We’ll dispel the belief that podcasting is complicated and expensive and affirm that you can have a profitable podcast that over time creates long-lasting trusted relationships and gets your brand and message out there like no other media platform can, resulting in eliminating competition. You’ll learn about the Brand Discovery Process that creates a single page foundational document that informs all other processes to create a successful podcast. We’ll show you the most important things you’ll need to know to have a successful podcast, and as a marketing tool how it supports lead generation and your sales funnel. We’ll show you how podcasting is highly interactive, collaborative, and is an ideal way for you to engage and understand your community (audience). Yes, you’ll be building a community of listeners with your podcast. We’ll show you several different options so you can choose the right equipment that fits your budget and level of technical expertise. We’ll talk about how much time is required to create and publish your episodes (do I have time?). Because podcasting is largely about storytelling and building relationships, we’ll give you several examples of ourselves and others who have had success generated from podcasting.
