I had a Western Digital (WD) 4 TB drive go out on me (pretty much without wanting). I downloaded my backup from Backblaze (www.supportthisshow.com/backblaze) and unzipped it only to find half my files were missing!
It turns out I had backed up the problem. I moved my backup date back a date and P…

Fishing For Stories
You Just Need a Story...

I'd rather have an edited show that gets right to the point filled with stories that pertain to the subject of the episode delivered in a relaxed conversation that del…
Today we are looking at the Be Great and Dominate podcast (begreatanddominate.com)
Your energy is LARGE, and if that is authentic then more power to you.
You might add a bit about your show, and you (why should I listen to you)?.
I love that you got right to the point.
As you are using Anchor,…

So many people when they start a podcast are focusing on marketing, monetization and other aspects. I love the Steve Marting line, "Nobody is asking, "How do I be good?"
My advice is to spend $100 on a microphone, and 100 hours getting to understand what your audience wants and needs.
Today I play a clip from the Podcast Review Show where a client explains how he feels like he talks to us more than he talks to some of his family. Podcasting creates better educated warm leads when you deliver value.
Today I talk about one start reviews.
While there may be points made (your volume is all over the place, it's not loud enough, too much chit chat) that you may need to take a serious look at, in some cases, the people who leave a review are simply not your target audience (and they don't like your …
Most media hosts offer a "Show Player" or Jukebox of some sort that allows you to display multiple episodes. This is a great tool for those who want to binge your show. They press play, and off it goes one episode right after the other.
I'm seeing more and more people make a single page on their …

I know there are no "Shoulds" in podcasting, but for me, it seems like people are so that doing an interview show is the fastest way to build your audience (it's not - doing a GOOD show is), and we have people wanted to get paid (even though its the guest who is bringing the value - it's an even tr…
Here is a link to Apple's Marketing Tools.
I do like the QR code, just remember not everyone uses an iPhone or Apple product. A LARGE number of people outside the US use android phones.
For me, why not provide a link to YOUR website where peop…
If you need to convert an XML to CSV, or RSS to Excel, these steps will do it in Excel. I know there are tools online, but most of them didn't do the whole feed (and I have over 700+ episodes).
By keeping a list, it makes it easier to remember what you have and have not talked about. It makes it …
Disclosure: The Zoom Podtrak on P8 was on loan from Zoom. I was not compensated for this review.

After getting yet another email that my website has had an issue, I was SO HAPPY I had been using Manage WP for years. It costs $2/month for a daily backup. When I got the White Screen of Death, I went in and restored my website. I was back up and running in minutes.

I had three people forward this email to me. There are things in this pitch that make it sound like they are offering "special" things (adding you to Apple) and they don't provide enough details (who owns the show) and much of this pitch "is happening soon." In my opinion, it smells a little fishy.…

The Apple "Store" view of the Apple iTunes (or search view in the Apple Podcasts App) is always 24 hours behind and only shows the last 300 episodes.
Some people make archives every 300 episodes. This means:
1. Your subscribers are scattered across multiple archives
2. Your audience has to go to m…
