QOTD - What's Your Cost? I had a very interesting conversation the other day about podcasting. We talked about the sensitive issue in cost and budgeting your show. The average podcaster pays almost nothing for their gear, software, and website. In the end, those people podfade pretty fast.

Not all frugal shows fade. Some see success. But in those issues, they turn around and start feeding the ad beast to grow. It's what's called "turning your podcast into a sustainable business."

Any successful TV or radio show has an advertising budget. They buy ad time even in old-school media.

Facebook advertising is a very important part in online advertising. In some cases, it can have a very low cost to it. You simply have to know what to boost and when to boost it.

In 2016, I put over $500 in advertising on my show. In return, I built my... more »

QOTD - Podcasting Live in front of an Audience There are some podcasters that actually embrace the live audience for their shows. I know the +Downtown Podcast (now called Vegas Talk Show) records live weekly. Lat week, +Chris Hardwick was one of many podcasters that took the stage for a live show at +SXSW.

I have done a couple live podcasts myself. I also record shows where bloggers-reporters are involved as the audience.

When doing it live, what tips do you have to bring an audience or keep them engaged?

Re-Inventing the Podcast I know - this is not the first time you've heard this. But I was in a good conversation the other day and we were talking about this.

First of all, does the podcast need to be re-invented?

Secondly, how would that be done? There are ways a podcast can grow - 3rd party RSS inclusion like <itunes:> tags.

If you were tasked to change podcasting, what would you focus on?

QOTD - iTunes Upgrade Wishlist So I've been looking at itunes podcasts as of late. In all reality, it hasn't had too many upgrades since it's inclusion. The app also isn't really doing much more than giving you a portal to shows.

I spent the last month figuring out ways to actually promote my iTunes channels. The reality was the best thing to do was simply promote the website and make sure everyone could get to the iTunes subscribe button.

So my upgrade wish is for something that I can use to promote my sites better.

What would you like to see iTunes do better?

QOTD - What's Your Cost? I had a very interesting conversation the other day about podcasting. We talked about the sensitive issue in cost and budgeting your show. The average podcaster pays almost nothing for their gear, software, and website. In the end, those people podfade pretty fast.

Not all frugal shows fade. Some see success. But in those issues, they turn around and start feeding the ad beast to grow. It's what's called "turning your podcast into a sustainable business."

Any successful TV or radio show has an advertising budget. They buy ad time even in old-school media.

Facebook advertising is a very important part in online advertising. In some cases, it can have a very low cost to it. You simply have to know what to boost and when to boost it.

In 2016, I put over $500 in advertising on my show. In return, I built my channels and sponsors felt more confident in using my services.

I also bought a new mixing console, which improved sound quality and ease of use. The mobile rig also got a new mixer, which I have used in some higher-profile shows.

So with that said, what have you spent so far and what is your planned budget for 2017?___

Is Facebook Gonna Change Podcasting? Some of you already read that Facebook is looking to get into live audio. But if video is any indication of what the audio side is going to be like, you might just lose out if you do it.

Why?

First of all, if you've read the rules of Facebook Live Video, you know you cannot call out a sponsor. That could get your channel taken down.

Then there is Freebooting - stealing video content and posting on your channels. Video is not easy to spot when someone steals it. Imagine them stealing your audio files and pubishing on FB...

You start to lose control of your content. And there won't be a way to publish to iTunes, so you'll still have to find a 3rd party hosting service.

Finally, will people actually listen? After all, they say 85% of people who watch the videos never turn on the sound. What will... more »

Finally, will people actually listen? After all, they say 85% of people who watch the videos never turn on the sound. What will happen with audio-only?

I've seen many other outlets try this. YouTube also tried audio for a little while in 2008.

Facebook may be able to say you had a lot of listeners to your show, but in the end - will you gain any fans from doing FB Live Audio?

Let's hope I'm wrong...

QOTD - Countering January Drop-off For some podcasters, the holidays mean a spike in views/listens, but then in January they get a drop-off. As the year goes by for any podcaster, you see peaks and valleys in your show. Especially if you produce a weekly podcast.

Running a contest can help in those valleys. Talk to vendors to see if you can get some good prizes, then set it all up with promos and ads.

Another way is to produce different content. For me this year, it's CES, NAIAS and NAMM videos. If you don't go to conferences, maybe work on getting a special guest on the show or listener-run content.

If you know your valleys, then producing less shows during that time to build up your Facebook, Twitter, G+ or other presence is just as good as making a show. Then when you are back on your peak, you might have brought in a new group of people.

Do you have any tips or tricks that can help others bring audience at lull times?___

QOTD - Emoji So did you know that adding an Emoji into your podcast post can help with engagement? Bing and Google both allow contents from an emoji search. While you don't want to overdo it, an occasional 😊or a 🎤 can really spice up the post.

Do you add any Emojis and if so, what has worked well for you?

QOTD - Shared Podcast A few years ago I participated in a shared podcast - people would sign up and record a podcast episode which A: promoted their show and B: gave podcasters something different to talk about.

I am wondering if a shared podcast is something you would be interested in doing? You would record a 10-15 minute show that could then be put out on the web. It would be audio based, but you can also make a video version for your YouTube, Vimeo or whatever.

Keep in mind we would want to tie this in with a specific genre. I haven't come up with one, but let's say movie reviews for example.

Would you like to participate in this?

The season premiere of Walking Dead brought a violent episode. More violent than any Game of Thrones, Dexter and most movies. Now the Parent's Television Council has deemed it the most graphically violent show they've seen on TV. How will that shape the future of Walking Dead? Did this episode bring more viewers, or shy away fans?
