82- The PODCAST REPAIRMAN enters the podosphere

In this episode, we deliver an interview with Gary Leland about his new offering of THE PODCAST REPAIRMAN — both from the point of view of the Entrepreneur (i.e., why and how he entered the market of Podcast services), as well as that of the Podcaster.

PodcastRepairmanAs you will hear in this audio episode, Entrepreneur Gary Leland has multiple businesses for which he had built up infrastructure to handle sales via eCommerce, tangible goods, wallpaper, etc.

However, as a podcaster for over 10 years, Gary has also built the infrastructure for creating web sites, creating content, and publishing podcasts and videos for the sports niche and for podcasting itself.

Now Gary has entered into the world of Podcast Services with his services offering of THE PODCAST REPAIRMAN— as well as a related field, that of web site services in development and maintenance.

But Gary is not having the typical large launch of internet marketers. He is delivering the PERSONAL TOUCH and one-on-one service to his customers. He is planning organic growth. How? Mainly referrals and word-of-mouth marketing. In fact, he is not promoting or advertising his Podcast Repairman offering to the masses, as he will deliver excellent quality to his customers.

Although this may defy some conventional wisdom for Entrepreneurs, as well as podcasters and internet marketers, Gary has already started the beginnings of a growing business for those aspiring podcasters who do not want to spend the time and effort to learn or perform the labor-intensive tasks of creating, publishing and delivering podcast shows and podcast episodes.

Gary LelandAnd Gary’s price-point is very competitive for the market he is serving. He can produce a podcast episode per week. So, for an average of 4 episodes per month, he charges to what amounts to $150 per episode — which extremely aggressive, especially with the quality that he will deliver.

Also, Gary is offering to waive the $295 set-up fee for each show if you mention to him the word “Fred.” You can hear this near the end of the interview.

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.

41- Update- Hall of Fame for Podcasters — and Bumpers

After having to go on a business trip that took over a week, I apologize to my listeners for my forced absence, and thus not publishing an episode before episode 40 (which was repurposed from an interview I did with Adam Curry).

In this episode, we discuss and bring you up to date with 4 key topics:

(1) The Academy of Podcaster Awards (and point you to an earlier episode where we interviewed Gary Leland, who gave us the details of this and the Hall of Fame);

(2) The first 2 inductees to the Hall of Fame for Podcasters — i.e., ADAM CURRY and Leo LaPorte;

(3) The availability of PODCAST ALLEY at New Media Expo in April, 2015 (i.e., what it is and where to go to sign up for free);

NOTE:

What we had planned to bring to you as an additional report was the topic of Twitter Bombing. However, this topic was completely and very well covered by both Dave Jackson in his School of Podcasting podcast episode, as well as Rob Walch in the podcast called The Feed. Thus, we will not re-invent the wheel, and we will cover bumpers for podcasts instead.

And lastly,

(4) The importance of Bumpers for your podcast episode, including:

– a Bumper for one of my podcasts, the Struggling Entrepreneur, by Leo LaPorte; and

– a discussion on bumpers from Tee Morris, from his Podcast show episodes of  Podcasting for Dummies — the Companion Podcast– with written permission from Tee Morris and Evo Terra, the authors of the original paperback book..

The reason why this podcast show is important is that Wiley Publishing, Inc., who owns the intellectual property for the DUMMIES series, saw success in this free companion podcast (which is still in iTunes(R) today) that they had another printing of the original 2006 book, originally titled as Podcasting for Dummies, as well as a follow-on book called Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies. The original artwork is well known, and the companion podcast image in iTunes uses the same logo, but with the subtitle as “The Companion Podcast.” We thank Wiley Publishing, Inc., for their foresight and vision in fostering the creation of this companion podcast show and the publishing of these 2 books for the Podcasting Community, as well as their success for these published content pieces.Podcasting For Dummies bookCopyright (c) 2006-2015, Wiley Publishing, Inc.

11D- Overall review- Podcast Movement Conference- this Reporter’s perspective

This episode gives a brief review of the Podcast Movement conference, held in Dallas, Texas, on August 15-18, 2014.

In summary, the conference seemed to be a success. The objectives that Gary Leland had described to us earlier were:

(1) the attendees and participants should have a great time and lots of fun; and

(2) everyone should leave with the value of having learned a great deal about podcasting to make themselves successful.

In short, the fun, excitement, euphoria and passion of the earlier Expos finally came alive in a different manner with this community of the Podosphere.

As you will hear in this episode, there were three things that stood out during this conference:

(1) The energy, passion and excitement of the event and the community feeling that it caused;

(2) The vendors that shared their information in a good manner within the layout; and

(3) The speakers and the level of topics..

During the last day of the event, there was an offer of a discount to any attendees that wanted to purchase the ticket to the 2015 Podcast Movement conference (next year) in Fort Worth, Texas.

So, congratulations to Gary Leland for having put on a successful conference and event. We look forward to seeing another great event, where podcasters can come, network, share, learn and have a great time doing so as they go on their path for their success.

Bonus Episode 3- Nine things you will miss out by not attending Podcast Movement Conference in Person

The Podcast Movement Conference in the Dallas, Texas, area is the 2014 event for podcasters, and put on by podcasters.

PodcastMovement2014As you will hear in this audio episode, we describe and discuss nine (9) things or situations of which you will miss out if you –as a podcaster — do not attend this event in person. And they are:

1. The MINDS —

2. The PLAYERS–

3.  The “GROOVE”–

4.  The MINDSET —

5.  The TECH–

6.  The “HALLWAYS”–

7.  The BUZZ–

8. MORE CONTENT CREATION–

9. (This is actually a BENEFIT for the attendee–>)   NO DELAY to get the Virtual Ticket recordings.

NOTE: The idea for this was episode was taken from episode 33 of a previous Podcast from Paul Colligan in 2006 called Podcast Tools Weekly update. He had described several things you would not get if you did not attend the original Podcast-specific event back then in 2006. Well, we have enhanced this, so that current podcasters can think twice about the value they can get by attending the event in person, instead of just waiting for the virtual ticket and consuming the recorded sessions via the web in video and audio at a later date.

Gary Leland, who was one of the original organizers of this conference (which was created via a crowdfunding project in Kickstarter), has two main objectives for claiming success to this event:

1. The attendee would have a load of FUN at this event; and

2. The attendee would learn a great deal and receive value from the education and networking.

The end result for Gary would be that the podcaster attendee would want to return eagerly for the next Podcast Movement event during the following year and await with great anticipation.

Knowing Gary as I do, I am confident that these objectives will not only be met, but also exceeded, in providing value for the attendee podcasters. Thus, we hope to see you there in person at this event in August of 2014.
