Okay on to the show…Hey Everyone! Welcome to another episode of the Digital Marketing Dive Podcast. I’m Shawn Swaim the Chief Rain Maker at Big Head Digital Media and the  self-proclaimed king of the Internet. With me as always is Seth Goldstein, the Chief Web Geek at Big Head Digital Media.We have a great episode for you today! 

Today we’re going meta. We’re talking podcasts and podcasting.

SS: First, I think we should ask the question if Podcasting is right for small businesses and at what phase should one be started?

What’s the intent of the podcast?

  • Hosts
  • Anchor
  • Libsyn
  • Blubrry
  • Podbean
  • Tools
  • Audacity
  • Anchor is a tool too
  • Fancy all in one kit like we have with a mixing board, microphones, and headphones we don’t use
  • Standalone microphones like Blue Snowball, or Blue Yeti, etc.
  • Your phone… No seriously… your phone.
  • Tips
    • Quality of content matters more than quality of production value
    • Remember we’re not going for NPR here. This is podcasting not radio
    • If you drop the F-Bomb you should really use the Explicit tag for that show. It doesn’t mean you need to use it from now on, just the shows where curses and sensitive content is used or talked about.

This week we’re doing our favorite podcast picks.

Shawn: How I Built This | Ed Mylett Show

Seth: The Morning Stream | Startup by Gimlet
