Best Ways to Invent and Plan Powerful Podcast Topics

All podcasters do it. Try to come up with the next best idea for the show. Some procrastinate until show time and hope the lightining bolt will strike. But what if you pre-planned the podcast without even knowing it? Dwight D. Eisenhower once said “Plans are nothing; planning is everything.” Every show you see on TV starts with a morning (or weekly) planning meeting. Weeding the bad ideas from the good.

How To Use the Selfie to Your Podcast’s Advantage

The Sinatra song goes: When you’re smiling, when you’re smiling. Then the whole world smiles at you… Selfies are big business because you can capture the moment by pointing a camera at yourself. Watching social media I see a lot of people are doing the “Ellen Show selfie” hoping to break a record on Twitter.

You WILL get noticed, though. A...

Podcast from Mobile device 1

Podcast or Interview from your iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Device

The best part about podcasting is how mobile it has become. Even back in 2007, you could get a digital recorder which allowed you to record audio.

Every week we connect up and record with minimal issue. Especially nowadays when there are multiple ways to connect and communicate. Here are some...
