Better Than Ever Tools To Keep Up To Speed

This podcast has actually been around for quite some time and unfortunately it seems to have lost its momentum as both the hosts are working different projects now.  However, ever now and then there is a new episode published and they tend to all be worth the wait.

This podcast is a great tutorial on the process of finding a partner to co-host a show with.  As well as some great tips on how to maintain a consistent theme of your shows to keep the listeners coming back.

Another great topic of the show is everything that goes into actually promoting your podcast all over the net in an effective way.

Like the Ben Settle Show’s podcast on “Podcast’s” this one at least gives you a great starting point when conducting the planning to get your show on the air quickly while learning from the issues others have been able to navigate at this point.

And if your not already considering running a show in the near future, listening to these two converse live at one of Schramko’s events should be enough to get at least to the starting point.

Antipreneur | The Ben Settle Show
Sun, 23 November 2014

Today’s exciting new “Ben Settle Show” podcast is for people who want to start or how to run a podcast successfully.cute horses ass

We rap about:

* What a “governor” is… and how it can make or break your podcast. (Even if you have a ton of natural podcasting talent, if you don’t know this, you’re dead in the water.)

* Why you should make it a goal to hurt at least one person’s feelings in each podcast.

* How to give someone unsolicited advice without sounding like a douche bag.

* What never to say in your first podcast episode. (Doing this will make you sound like a rank amateur—how do I know? Because I made this mistake. But you won’t after listening to this episode.)

* The one thing the world’s most popular podcasts do that will put you head and shoulders over everyone else in your category. (Not 1 in 100 podcasters know this, but you can start doing this right away, as soon as you finish listening.)

* A secret way to use Audible to make your podcast quality far better than any of your competition’s.

* How to make sure you don’t sound like a complete horse’s ass on your podcast.

* How to use an ordinary bath towel to make your voice sound sexier.

* And lots more…

The Inbound Marketing Process

Have you ever had that feeling when you talking to someone that they could have shortened the answer just a little bit? I have, and I have to admit I tend to be a really “Get to the point already” kind of guy. And during the years that I have been marketing online I have seen tons of video’s, blog posts, and products that really don’t do that. So with this post I wanted to break that trend and define inbound marketing and the process on how to apply it in the simplest terms possible. Trust me you’ll love it!
