54- Podcast Movement 2015 Conference – Some reflections

podcast_reporter_albumartwork1400In this episode, there are regrets and apologies, along with reflections from this Podcast Reporter.

Regretfully, I will not be able to attend the Podcast Movement 2015 event due to major health issues, which have been caused by complications resulting from Agent Orange (the toxin used in Vietnam, and which negatively affected the combat infantrymen on the ground when they were in the jungles and rice paddies and mountains in Vietnam and Laos).

So this episode covers the following topics in the theme of REFLECTIONS:

– Having to miss the networking, personal communications and re-energizing and reinforcing the relationships I had with various podcasters that have become good acquaintances and friends. Among them is one of the co-founders and organizers of the Podcast Movement Conference, Gary Leland (he had a booth in 2014 with the old “Podcast Pickle” who is now re-branded as the “Podertainment Pickle”) — for Gary had a booth for his Podertainment Magazine in the exhibit area:

– Having to cancel my live interview scheduled on 31July2015 with Doug Foresta of the CoachZing podcast show;

– Having to miss Paul Colligan’s meetup;

– Having to miss the workshops which I had signed up for earlier;

– Having to miss the exhibits and announcements;

But most of all, HAVING TO MISS THE PODCASTING HALL-OF-FAME ceremony for the inaugural inductees, as well as the Podcaster Awards ceremonies — scheduled for 31 July 2015.

In speaking about the Hall of Fame ceremony that is scheduled for 31 July 2015, the first inductee is the “PODFATHER” himself — Adam Curry.

Adam CurryAs you will hear in this audio episode, we also cover the question of whether the Podcast Movement conference can repeat the success of 2014.

In addition, there is some feedback from other podcasters about the selection of speakers and keynote speakers for this event.

Finally, we recommend that you listen to the following podcasters and their shows AFTER the conference to get summaries of the event and their perspectives:

Paul Colligan and his The Podcast Report;

Dave Jackson and his School of Podcasting;

Todd Cochrane and his New Media Show;

Adam Curry and his No Agenda Show;

Daniel J Lewis and his Audacity to Podcast show.

46- From Podcasting Success Secrets – anatomy of a new co-host podcast Joint Venture

This episode has 3 individual entrepreneurs in a single interview, so that we can learn about the lessons learned in this live case study where we review the anatomy of a successful Joint Venture / partnership. The joint venture partners are D’Vorah Lansky and Doug Foresta, and their venture started with the 30-Day Podcasting Challenge, and their web site for the podcast is Podcasting Success Secrets.

D Lansky interviews Lon NaylorThis was a venture that targeted the authors and entrepreneurs with a non-judgmental and non-intimidating environment to get their message published.

Less than a year old, this venture has many programs within it. One such program is called The Podcast Club.

The attached pdf document will give you an overview of the features, benefits and programs of this venture for the intended audiences of authors and entrepreneurs.

Select this link to view the PDF DOCUMENT “About the PODCAST CLUB.”

As you will hear in this audio episode, we explore:

– how they met and became JV partners;

– how they began their planning and conducted their research for their target audience(s);

– how they planned the potential programs of their new venture — including podcasts, membership site, premium content, interactive calls and webinars, mastermind groups — and more;

– how their podcast became a key piece of their venture (since they were both podcasters).

We also get a quick peek at their future plans for growth and directions for this venture.

Now, in full disclosure, I have been interviewed by each of these two individuals for 2 separate podcast shows in the past. But in this episode, they are the interviewees over the Skype network.

They also deliver the lessons learned and their challenges in starting this venture less than a year ago. From what they mention in the discussion, they seemed to have discovered a strong niche that is hungry for the content and programs that they are delivering. And so far, their venture has met or exceeded its financial goals.

If you wish to become a member of their program, they are offering a special discount to any of our listeners that mention to them that they heard about their venture on this podcast episode.

30- CoachZing interview by Doug Foresta examines Podcast monetization

The CoachZing Show is a podcast series, available on iTunes(R) and other directories, which delivers interviews with entrepreneurs, coaches, therapists, authors and speakers — to discover tips and techniques for effective content creation and marketing. It is available on iTunes and other directories, and it is a free podcast show.

Doug Foresta is the interviewer and host of this podcast show.

In this episode, we have a repurposed interview — as it is originally published by CoachZing.com. The reason why we deliver it in entirety and unedited as the final mp3 file published by CoachZing is that the person being interviewed is Fred Castaneda, who is also the host of The Struggling Entrepreneur podcast and the Podcast Reporter podcast (just 2 of the current active 8 shows).

As you will hear in this audio episode, Doug discusses the potential mistakes of content creators in the world of New Media and podcasting. He also discovers some of the strategies for entrepreneurs to make podcasting a successful tool as part of their marketing. They can do this by generating revenue streams by adding podcasting to their marketing.

 

 We thank Doug for his interview and we know it will provide value to the aspiring entrepreneurs who deal with content creation.
