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.

Organic Farming Builds Community-Gentleman Farmer-Podcast 743

These days people of all ages dream of traveling the country in an RV or having their own little farm. A trip to Western Wisconsin ended up in a great podcast with a good friend. Check it out in Organic Farming Builds Community-Gentleman Farmer-Podcast 743.

Everyone Loves Super Fresh Produce

Moreover my gentleman farmer friend showed me how growing better food on a small plot helps build a community. Seems like everyone loves to help because everyone loves super fresh organic produce. Broccoli so soft you only need to heat it. Tomatoes that locals refer to as ‘crack’. Basil so fresh if you take it home and put it in a glass of water it will grow roots.

It Takes Work

It isn’t easy though. Most noteworthy is the amount of physical work that my gentleman farmer friend has to put in. Any help from locals is always welcome and locals seem most interested and eager to be part of it.

Friends and Neighbors Put Together An Organic Farm

After years in the corporate world and as a business owner my gentleman farmer collaborated with some associates and friends, and bought a plot of land with some buildings. The plan for the farm slowly emerged after consulting with friends and neighbors. Hear the whole story in Organic Farming Builds Community-Gentleman Farmer-Podcast 743.

Business of Farming Is Changing

When it comes to the business of farming these days, there is a lot of controversy. Tariffs. Trade Wars. Farm subsidies. Farmers working thousands of acres have different challenges in feeding the world than gentleman farmers. Rather than criticize what some like to call ‘real farmers’, the Gentleman Farmer says the challenges are probably different.

Sometimes You Have To Change

While bigger farms feed the world, in contrast locally grown organic produce and other products can be a cash crop. As the old marketing sage says, “Sometimes it’s necessary to change the way you do things to compete.” In addition my friend’s vision includes components of more community and opportunity.

A beautiful day in mid summer in Western Wisconsin, on the farm. People coming to visit. Coffee and conversation. And napping.
