Podcasting Is the New Radio
4. What are the most commonly made mistakes when it comes to starting your own podcast?
- Underestimating the power of podcasting. Virtually all the Fortune 500 companies are seeing the value of having their own podcasts.
- Making low-quality podcasts which are sometimes called backyard podcasts. In contrast: we currently use highly trained audio engineers for recording and post production.
- Underestimating the need for marketing.
- Not using professional interview techniques and formats.
5. How to analyze the effectiveness of a given episode?
By a number of downloads, the direct feedback from guests, and the desire by new contacts, companies, and individuals to be on our shows. We have featured the world’s top innovators and companies and continue to do so. Many of the shows we produce are booked months in advance. Our success with advertisers and sponsors paying us is a direct result of the above.
