How To Start A Podcast [Free Webinar]
Americans now listen to approximately 21.1 million hours of podcasts per day, according to Edison Research. That's an 18% growth over the past year, with more and more consumers "tuning in" to this medium for content delivery. 1
As a business and brand building tool, podcasting is enjoying an incredible surge, fueled in large part by the default inclusion of a Podcast app in all new iPhones.
It's no surprise then that many of you want to start your own Podcast. You can demonstrate your expertise, and bring in guests to share their wisdom with a growing audience.
And the podcast itself is highly reusable, since you can embed it on a blog post with a description or even a full transcription of the show. And you can clip soundbites and segments and reuse them over and over for marketing and education.
So how do you get started?
Clearly, it's not by following me [grin]. While I may think Podcasting is great, my own skills and passion lie with the written word. So instead, allow me to recommend my friend and colleague, Shannon Hernandez.
Shannon is an incredibly cool cat.
He is literally a Rock Star DJ, spinning records for a rock-n-roll radio station in Arizona. When he's not playing tunes and interviewing rock stars for the station, he's working to help businesses and entrepreneurs get started with their own broadcasts and podcasts.
And that's where the webinar comes in.
On Thursday, March 12th, at 2pm Eastern, you have an opportunity to join Shannon and me on a free webinar that's going to blow your mind. You'll discover what your true passions are for creating a powerful podcast that will inspire and strengthen your brand on the "7 Simple Steps to Creating a Pro Podcast" *live* Webinar.
On this podcast training experience, you'll learn how to set up your podcast from A to Z with the unique tools that Shannon uses to launch his and his client's podcasts.
Shannon shares his most powerful exercise to get clear on your vision to create a professional podcast that truly inspires your current and brand new audiences.
After the webinar, if you're interested, you'll have an opportunity to sign up for Shannon's private academy where you can really dig deep and draw from Shannon's vast experience. I've checked it out, and this is definitely where I'd go if I wanted to start a podcast. I may even start using my existing blog content to power a podcast channel and reach a new audience...
But first things first. Join Shannon and I on Thursday and we'll explore the "7 Simple Steps to Creating a Pro Podcast." Hope to see you then.
