38- Virtual Event- Business Podcaster Summit – a review

In this audio episode, we deliver a review of the Business Podcaster Summit online conference — aka a Virtual Event — for podcasters who want to establish podcasting as a business or take their podcasts to the next level in monetization or profit strategies.

 As you will hear in this audio episode, this virtual event took place during the last two weeks of January, 2015. With a dozen sessions delivered by speakers chosen by two of the folks that started Podcast Movement (the conference), the topics ranged from Building Podcast Communities and Creating Mailing lists via Podcasting to Crowdfunding — and more.

I myself attended the conference online during the live presentations. I tried to get some of the materials, slides and download the audio episode and chatroom transcripts — although some of these were not readily available, even after a few days of the live session.

Overall, I feel that the summit provided great value to those who could not attend the previous Podcast Movement conference (or get the content from the virtual ticket) — as most of these selected speakers also spoke at the August, 2014, conference (many times with the same or related presentation). In fact, this review highlights what I considered the top 3 sessions.

Of course, even though there were only 12 sessions of 50 to 60 minutes each, an attendee always wishes that there had been more sessions — especially from well-known business successes and thought leaders with monetization in podcasting, such as Paul Colligan, Daniel J Lewis and others (whose absence was considerably noticed by experienced podcasters).

Indeed, for those who could not attend the live sessions, the replays have a web page for those paying customers — and as soon as they are available, they will add more value to the podcasters who want to consume the content from this virtual event.

It will be interesting to see the content and sessions from the upcoming Podcast Movement 2015 conference and the subsequent Business Podcaster Summit.

35- Podcaster Virtual Event in January 2015- with a Special rate

In this episode, we deliver to you the news of a discounted rate for attending a live virtual event for Podcasters — the Business Podcaster Summit 2015.

As you will hear in this audio episode, we review briefly the differences between a live virtual event and a virtual ticket from a live conference. Then we proceed to give some details about the upcoming Business Podcaster Summit, and the special rate of attending for only $97 US dollars — good until 20 January 2015.

As you will hear in this audio episode, this program actually delivers the best of both worlds of a live event and virtual ticket to the podcaster audience — attending a live event in an online environment, as well as getting the replays of both the audio and video recordings from the virtual event (and even transcripts) after the event.

The EventBrite site provides the discount promo code of LIST50, as well as a list of the attendees for the event, and also a list of Q-and-A.

 The link for this is:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/business-podcaster-summit-2015-online-podcast-conference-tickets-13358600935?discount=LIST50

As I mention in this audio episode, I do NOT have an affiliate link for this event. My recommendation is for podcasters who could not attend Podcast Movement Conference in August of 2014 and who did not get the virtual ticket. Because the speakers for this event are almost the same as key presenters at Podcast Movement earlier, this may bring some value to new or aspiring podcasters who want to monetize their shows.

I myself will be attending the event, and I will report on this Summit afterwards.

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.
