I recently got back from Podcast Movement in Chicago, and I would love to share a little bit about it and my biggest takeaways from the event as well as something that is going to involve you coming on the Business Rescue Road Map!
I don’t remember exactly how I found out about Podcast Movement, but when I saw that it had speakers like Pat Flynn and John Lee Dumas, my interest was definitely sparked.
The event was around $500 and the cool thing about it was it had a bunch of different rooms, maybe eight or so different presentations going on from leading industry experts. What I really liked about it was they had different tracks that you could follow. There was a marketing track, a monetization track, one for the technical side, content, and so on. I stuck with a lot of the marketing and monetization mainly because that is my strong suit and what I enjoy doing.
Overall it was a fabulous event and I will be adding this to my annual conferences. Next year it will be in Anaheim California in August. For me, The connections alone that I was able to make were so critical. Whether it was getting people on my show, or others inviting me to be a guest on theirs, was well worth the ticket.
Here’s some of what I learned:
One of the things we learned about was why it’s so important to share your story with your listeners. Listeners resonate with stories, so, in one of my future solocasts, I’m going to be sharing my story with you. Even if you have heard it before, I am going to go into detail of the ups and downs of running my own business and how I have gotten to this point in my life. (minute 2:00)
Another thing I learned about was getting my community more involved. One of my biggest struggles for me as a podcaster is there is no interaction in the moment, unlike Periscope and Facebook live. One of the suggestions I received at Podcast Movement was to get listeners to ask questions by recording themselves and they can appear on the show. When I announced this in my private facebook community, I immediately got a great question from Celeste that I will be featuring in a show in a few weeks. (minute 3:00)
I also learned about interviewing listeners. You have your own stories, and I’d love to talk to you about them. If you’re interested, please let me know via the link in the resources section. (minute 7:00)
