63- Your END GAME goals in Podcasting and New Media

Whether you are a podcaster, screencaster, video-content-creator, blogger or ebook author,  we explore in this episode the questions that you need to ask about your current and future “END GAME” goals in New Media, as well as the importance of periodic review and possible revision of them.

With cases in point and other examples, we investigate these questions (which we suggest that you ask of your New Media assets and deliverables):

1. MONETIZATION goals;

2. EDUTAINMENT goals (that is, Entertainment and/or Education);

3. Goal to build a loyal COMMUNITY;

4. What part of YOURSELF will you put into your podcast or screencast or videocast?

5. Is your goal to help COMMUNICATE and deliver your message?

6. Camaraderie goals from a common experience;

or

7. Goal to participate in a key EVENT within your New Media or Podcast space (e.g., International Podcast Day)?

In fact, we have one case-in-point video that is only a few minutes in length, but can give you the key END-GAME goal for Screencasters who want to raise the value of their skills portfolio to increase their brand, their exposure and their opportunity for success and monetization:

In this episode, we deliver a repurposed audio episode from The Struggling Entrepreneur Podcast Show. We have an in-depth interview with an Entrepreneur who is a DISRUPTER in the monetization environment in podcasting — mainly because he is committed NOT to be a podcaster. That is, he is committed to be a GUEST of podcasting interviews and create revenue streams in his entrepreneurship.

Tom Schwab and free bookThe entrepreneur is Tom Schwab. He has a business in which he leverages the results of his being a guest on podcasts:

– he turns his listeners into LEADS;

– he turns his leads into buying CUSTOMERS;

– he nurtures the customers into loyal ADVOCATES.

As you will hear in this audio episode, Tom is a Navy veteran.  Tom is a specialist in processes and systems. This has helped him to develop the content for his:

– services;

– ebook content; and

– online course content.

As you will hear, Tom has offered a 50 per cent discount for any of his premium offerings — that is, the online course and/or consulting services. All you have to do is mention to Tom that you heard about this in this podcast episode.

40- Adam Curry discusses podcast quality and New Media

This is repurposed content from the inaugural episode of Skills in Screencasts and Podcasts, and it delivers an interview with the “Podfather,” Adam Curry, who discusses New Media importance in the areas of podcasting and screencasting.

Adam Curry on wikipedia.org

This interview was conducted at the downtown Austin Hilton Hotel, where the noise was at a high level, but we found the quietest place to be in the business office just off the lobby. We apologize for the background noise and ambient sounds.

Around 2011, there was a movement from the New Media community of content creators to try to get bloggers to add Podcasting to their skills and join the podcasting community — mainly to grow their audience and add another channel for their content.

In 2014, the current movement is to try to get the podcasters to add screencasting to their skill-set — and vice-versa, get screencasters to add podcasting to their skills portfolio. The idea is to grow their audience and increase the possibilities of monetization, generate additional revenue streams and exploit new channels for content distribution.

As you will hear in this audio episode, Adam Curry discusses the models for podcasters and screencasters, as well as quality in the production of New Media content.

About Adam Curry:

Born in 1964, he is “on the cusp” of the Baby Boomer range, and is one of the “last of the official Baby-Boomers.” He also has had a history of financial success in making millions, then spending them all, and then finally of being an Entrepreneur that found happiness by living his passion as a “Government Legislation Analyst” in his latest business of podcasting with his show of No Agenda.

After over 7 years of building a loyal audience, he  has proven that the road to his full-time Entrepreneurship is with the business model which he has proven successful — known as the VALUE-FOR-VALUE model.

But to many others in the New Media arena, Adam Curry is also known as the “Pod-Father” —  since he and Dave Winer created the ability to implement successful podcasting. It was this breakthrough that allowed him to explore audio podcasting and create a show that still has a tremendous worldwide following of loyal listeners (known by Adam as “producers” — like the ones in the Hollywood model of entertainment).

This came after a career with MTV and broadcasting. His media experience saw him as part of Mevio.com, (previously known as Podshow) with different podcasts that he also started (like the Daily Source Code).

However, almost seven years ago, he started his flagship podcast show called NO AGENDA with his co-host, columnist John C. Dvorak. As an entrepreneur, he has developed the format and content of the show.

You will notice that Adam Curry has several “firsts” in his success as a full-time podcaster-entrepreneur:

(1) He provides docoumented deconstruction, information of value and entertainment;

(2) He created his own position and title as a Government Legislation Analyst. Yes, he actually READS, analyzes and deciphers each governmental bill, proclamation, executive order, and United Nations document–and he even highlights the pertinent sections that can provide you, the listener, with critical thinking and and intelligent basis for making decisions and being well-informed. The documents and other valuable information are part of his extraordinary show notes, which are free to the listener from his podcast web site.

(3) He has proven that his business model of VALUE-FOR-VALUE can be a successful one (and so far, a sustainable one) by building a loyal audience and receiving willing donations for the value that the audience receives.
