Anybody Have Any Success with Podcasting?721

Just got a phone call from our largest local radio station here in the Bay Area.

They want me to buy 90 minutes of studio time monthly to pro-produce 4 15-minute podcasts that they will in turn promote to their network here in the Bay Area.

Podcasting ... I always thought I had a face for radio and a voice that is too nasally for radio ... so I write.

What do you think of podcasting?

Does anybody have war stories to share?

I know lots of people wanting to make money from podcasting but very few that actually are...

I used to subscribe to some podcasts but now I don't ...

Buy 90 mins and we will help promote them ... sounds like a sales tactic designed to appeal to people ego ...

I like content repurposed as podcasts ...

Focus (someone mentioned that to me) ... is this were you want to be?

@Steve

I can make the podcast and pay you to promote it and get more miles out of it.

@Belew someone made me a similar offer ... except they wanted to sell sponsorship and split the profits ... isn't that always the way...

And I have no issue, pushing anything for people I know (note that word, know) ... here, if its a simple tweet just tweet me @fx_digital and I will hit the retweet button, no cost ... more, we talk ..

@Steve

Do you have an automatic retweet function.

I have added @fx_digital to all my automatic tweets. Does that mean that all my automatic updates will get retweeted to your list as well?

Nope... no automatic retweeter here ... they kill audience engagement as people take advantage of them, I have an endless stream of messages coming at me via @ ... and I manually go through ... answer what needs answering, retweet as I see fit, etc.

@Steve @Belew maybe we should have a Hangout for this group on how everyone uses / don't use social media?

I'd love to hear Steve's strategies on how he uses Twitter.

Is podcasting suitable for my own recording for my story? Such as soundcloud.

@tienny

Podcasting is suitable if/only when you have listeners.

There are lots of ways to reach people, and people want to be reached in different ways.

I have a face for radio...but not the voice.
