snqualitycontrolTen Common Mistakes That New Podcasters Make
In this episode, of Podcast Answer Man, I share ten of the most common mistakes that I have seen thousands of brand new podcasters make.

I not only share my thoughts on why these are mistakes, I also give suggestions of what you can do if you have made any of these mistakes yourself.

  • A lot of knowledge but little passion for the topic
  • No clear purpose/reason for doing the show / No Specific Goals
  • Having the “Show Me The Money” attitude
  • Expecting massive success at the launch of the podcast
  • Focusing on stats instead of existing audience
  • Not having a mailing list from the beginning
  • Wanting to launch several shows at once
  • Really bad audio quality
  • Waiting to launch until everything is perfect!
  • Not releasing your podcast as a .mp3 file.

    Two Cool Web Apps For Podcasters
    I recently received an email from Regan STarr about a web app that he created that easily shows you the top 400 ranked podcasts in iTunes by Category and Subcategory. You can check that out by clicking here.

    While looking at Regan's site, I noticed he also had a cool web app for easily finding the rss feed for any podcast in iTunes. Check it out by clicking here.

     
     
    Interview with Steve Lankford
    It was a huge honor to connect with Steve Lankford to talk about how things are going with his Health Quest Podcast. Steve was a student of my Podcasting A to Z course back in 2011 and he recently emailed me about reaching his 100th podcast episode milestone. I invited Steve to come and share some thoughts on his experience with podcasting over the past two years.

    Upcoming Event Schedule
    220calOne of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.

    Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.
