67A- Clarification on episode about Leveraging New apps

CLARIFICATION and CORRECTION

NOTE: This episode delivers a clarification from the preceding episode on Leveraging New Apps like meerkat, periscope and blab.

My apologies for the misunderstanding that was caused by my statements about Dave Jackson and his production of Ask the Podcast Coach podcast show. I want to thank Dave for sending me the correction, and this episode delivers it.

Also, in this episode, we give a brief summary of Gary Leland’s explanation given in a 55-minute video delivered in his subscription-based electronic magazine called Podertainment. The explanation given by Gary is in the October, 2015, issue of the Podertainment magazine.

The corrections have been included in this audio episode, and we recommend that you listen to the entire content.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

67- In support of the NEW MEDIA CONTENT CREATION model from Paul Colligan

Colligan Podcast ReportIn this episode, we attempt to address the buzz and popularity of such live-streaming tools with multiple purposes (like Meerkat, Periscope and blab.im) from the point of view of the Podcaster and a strategy for both content creation and distribution.

We have included some proof-points with some audio clips taken from episode 62 of Paul Colligan’s podcast show called The Podcast Report.

As you will hear in this audio episode, Paul describes a strategy that he delivered since 2009 when he coined the descriptor phrase of The New Media Content Creation Model.  And we support that strategy as  Podcasters who are trying to integrate these new apps and tools into both:

– content creation

and

– content distribution.

Some of us in the podosphere call these new apps “toys” or “shiny new objects” with which we can become obsessed and enamored (even though some of them may still be in beta). We feel that it is important that your strategy for podcasting can integrate these apps so that they are part of your New Media toolbox, and where you can leverage them best by using their strengths to ENHANCE your strategy and your business model — and NOT to replace your podcasting execution by losing time and using other resources you need so you can march to your planned success.

And you will also hear in this audio episode about a possible hidden drawback by focusing on some of these tools too directly — e.g., you may have to commit to do MORE WORK to add the right assets (music, audio intro, outro, sponsorship clips, voice-over, additional encoding, posting and publication, etc.) to create a good podcast episode from the content of these apps.

We encourage you to go to The Podcast Report show and listen to episode 62, in which Paul Colligan discusses his model and this situation with these apps in more detail.

Paul Colligan - public speaker

We thank Paul Colligan for his ideas and his sharing of his New Media Content Creation model, so that we can help ourselves to become better podcasters without having to be distracted and cry “Squirrel!” when new technology appears — however attractive it may be.

66- Daniel J Lewis discusses the value delivered to podcasters from PODCASTERS SOCIETY

podcasters-society-tall

We deliver an interview with Daniel J Lewis., the podcaster and founder of the NoodleMix Network at www.noodle.mx, as well as The Audacity to Podcast show, along with other podcasts.

During this interview, we discuss the VALUE to podcasters that is delivered by PODCASTERS’ SOCIETY, as well as the future directions and other features available in this membersship site.

As you will hear in this audio episode, this membership site that was announced and open since August, 2015, actually had its beginnings in 2014, when Daniel J Lewis wanted to deliver value to the podcasters who wanted to IMPROVE or ENHANCE their podcast by taking the level from just “average to AMAZING”. This idea sprung from the value delivered from a previous course that Daniel created and taught earlier called Podcast Master Class.

In addition, Daniel shares with us how his early objectives are being met, as well as his monetization strategies with this program — especially with all the features, forum, conversations and community aspects of the Podcasters’ Society Experience.

One feature to note for all podcasters is that a monthly guest will be spotlighted in a live webinar (with replay available for 36 hours after). This webinar will be open for the 2 days to everyone (but after that, it will only be available for replay to the members of Podcasters’ Society).

Daniel J Lewis-squareDaniel J. Lewis, creator of the Podcasters’ Society Program

As an Entrepreneur, Daniel has gone from a web designer and graphic designer to full-time podcaster, to a podcast-network-manager, and now to creating a “COLLABORATION MENTORSHIP” (that is the descriptive phrase that I coined for this membership site after I had joined it in late August) — of course, with Daniel J Lewis as the key “mentor.”

Some final differentiators of this site from most of the other membership sites in podcasting are:

(1) The Program does NOT focus on teaching others HOW TO PODCAST — that is, there is no mention of what hardware, software, plug-ins and other resources to acquire and how to use them to plan, produce, launch and promote a new podcast show.

In fact, Daniel vets his potential members by requiring them to have a podcast already launched and available in iTunes. Clearly, this program is not for aspiring podcasters, but for those who have some experience in podcasting already.

(2) Daniel’s program does not focus on Monetization of a podcast show. The road to making money with a podcast is an additional path that can be taken, but this site focuses on helping those who want to create a better podcast show, even if they are non-profit, or public service, or public sector or even HOBBY PODCASTERS. In other words, monetization is fine, but the program does not obsess over making money with podcasting — although discussions are welcome and community conversations are active in the member site forum.

Instead, the real focus of the program rotates around what Daniel considers the 4 Cornerstones of Podcasting — and he mentions and describes them in the audio episode.
