Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans

These days when it comes to podcasting milestones should be marked. My first podcast was in 2009. It’s most noteworthy that I have supported myself with a single podcast since 2013. Learn more in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Eight Hundred Podcasts

First of all after eight hundred podcasts I’ve done just about every crazy idea I can think of. I have never had a problem creating content or finding things to talk about. It is a creative challenge to come up with fresh ideas and venues for each podcast. Something I take very seriously. Here’s the Dillinger Podcast. And, here’s the Bonnie and Clyde Podcast.

Content Creators Business Challenge

Especially relevant for podcasters is the business challenge we face as independent content creators. Sure, if you’re famous there’s plenty of cash and help to put up a successful podcast.

Hardscrabble Media

In contrast the people close to my heart are the independent creators. I like to think of us as the hardscrabble farmers of the media ecosystem. Find out how it is for us in Celebrating Bob Davis Podcast 800-Lessons Learned-Future Plans.

Blog Page For Podcasts

Finally there have been a lot of changes at the Bob Davis Podcasts since the first podcast. The blog page is a full strength resource with blogs and links to my research for every podcast. Moreover I have committed myself to refusing to endorse, or fight for a point of view when it comes to politics.

No Shouting

In conclusion I find the social implications of policy far more interesting than joining the crowd shouting at listeners and subscribers about what they should believe and what they ‘should’ do. Do whatever you want. Believe what you will and more power to you!

Future Fun

2019 and 2020 will be big years for this podcast. Once I reach business goals the fun begins on the road. More about that later. Thanks to all of you for your support, subscriptions, and listening and especially sponsorships.

You will never know how much I appreciate it.

Gratitude-Moving Up-2018-2019-Year End-Bob Davis Podcast 792

First of all Happy New Year to subscribers and listeners. It has become a tradition to do a podcast thanking everyone on New Year’s Eve. This is it! Check it out Gratitude-Moving Up-2018-2019-Year End-Bob Davis Podcast 792.

These days running a creative business isn’t easy. Creative Content businesses are the most difficult. When I tell people I am a podcaster, I imagine they think it’s a hobby. Many of us podcasters are blazing new trails in an entirely new business.

Big thanks to the General Manager of the Bob Davis Podcasts, my mom! Moreover I spend a fair amount of time thanking my business networking group in Gratitude-Moving Up-2018-2019-Year End-Bob Davis Podcast 792.

Most importantly, my business networking group will remain anonymous because it is a secret weapon! If you are in business you know until you start networking in an organized group you don’t realize there are other people experiencing the same challenges.

Find out some of the best advice I have heard in Gratitude-Moving Up-2018-2019-Year End-Bob Davis Podcast 792. Similarly clients have also given me great advice over the years. I thank them one by one in this Happy New Year Podcast.

I don’t know about you but it seems like 2018 has been a tough year. Yes, I have certainly had more difficult years. However the challenges of 2018 have been pretty steep. In contrast to those challenges, gratitude has been foremost in my mind every day.

Finally my greatest thanks and gratitude is to the people who have listened and subscribed to these podcasts. Above all the people who have been on board since the beginning. Hard to believe we will hit podcast one thousand early in 2019.

In conclusion let’s not forget Mobile Podcast Command. We will be back out on the road mobile podcasting early in the year and hopefully with more to come in 2019.

Here’s to you and moving on up in 2019!

Doing Podcast Promoting Your Business-Good Idea?-Bob Davis Podcast 782

These days when you tell people you are a podcaster you always get ‘the question’. How do I do my own podcast to promote my business? Is this a good idea? The answer may surprise you. Learn more in Doing Podcast Promoting Your Business-Good Idea?-Bob Davis Podcast 782.

One Podcast Is As Good As Any Other

Furthermore many believe one podcast is as good as any other. Hence, why not do a podcast promoting your own business? Low and behold companies have popped up to ‘teach businesses’ how to do their own podcast.

I’m The Life Of The Party I Can Do This

Consequently a business owner who is the life of the party believes they can do a podcast too. Throw up a video on social media. This gets the word out for free and work wonders for their business.

Seems like a good idea! Certainly there are small business owners who are stand out communicators. Genuine people who have something serious to communicate about their business. Why shouldn’t a person like this do a podcast?

Small Business Advertising Budgets

In Doing Podcast Promoting Your Business-Good Idea?-Bob Davis Podcast 782 I focus on small businesses. Smaller businesses have tight advertising budgets and are always looking for an edge that doesn’t cost them anything.

Podcasting Is Highly Competitive

First of all with over five hundred thousand podcasts already on the Internet, podcasting is one of the most competitive advertising mediums in history. A medium for businesses to buy time just like they do on other media. Podcasts, especially regionally based podcasts, are competitively priced and effective advertising mediums.

You Can Do A Lot Of Harm To Your Business

Finally it is possible for a business can do great harm to itself if its communications aren’t professionally created. Especially when it comes to strategy. I give several examples in this podcast of what happens when a business owner becomes a communicator, and the business suffers.

Bad Shots and Shaky Video

In conclusion, from the CEO who handles the advertising to the small business person who posts poorly sized shots or shaky video on social media it’s probably a better idea to get professional advice and execution for your advertising effort.
