Twitter for Podcasters
[powerpess] On episode #20, we talked about about how podcasters can use Facebook. On this episode, we’re sticking with the social networking theme and talking about Twitter for podcasters.

News

  • Nick talks about a podcasting conference coming up, Podcast Mid-Atlantic. We share some details about the conference and discuss some of the unique and creative things they have planned.
  • International Podcast Day is September 30th and on our episodes of PGT between now and then, we will share a tip on how to celebrate IPD and share the “good news” of podcasts.  This week, we suggest sharing this Ira Glass video on Facebook or Twitter.

Twitter for Podcasters

Trying to tackle Twitter in one sitting is a challenge, but it’s one we’re ready to take. Since we talked about Facebook last week, we talk about how our Twitter strategy is different than our Facebook. We cover several topics: Personal accounts vs. brand accounts, marketing vs. personal, promotion vs. conversation, use of hashtags, negativity on Twitter, etc.

We’d love to hear about your Twitter strategy. What works? What doesn’t work? What do you like and dislike about Twitter. Have you discovered unique or creative ways to engage your audience or grow your audience through Twitter. Record an audio clip and email it to feedback@podcastersgrouptherapy.com

Facebook for Podcasters – #20

Facebook for Podcasters

Facebook is a great way for podcasters to promote their podcast and to connect with their listeners. So on this episode, we’re talking about Facebook.

News

  • Nick attended Podcamp Pittsburgh and gives us a recap of the two-day event. The organizers have put many videos of the sessions on YouTube. Nick mentioned Chris Brogan’s presentation and you can watch it here.
  • International Podcast Day is just over a month away and we’re already gearing up for the event.  International Podcast Day is a great opportunity to share podcasts with the people around you.  We haven’t figured it out exactly, but PGT will be celebrating IPD.  Stay tuned for information.
  • Midroll has announced a premium podcasting plan, Howl Premium.  We discuss this model and the podcasts that will make their back catalogs available for $5/month.

Facebook for Podcasters

Using Facebook to promote your podcast and engage with your listeners can be a very exciting and productive thing, or it can be very frustrating. Each of the three of us have different experiences and results with Facebook and we share how we use the platform.

Tawny talks about using Facebook groups, Corey shares what has worked for him and why Ivy Envy has more engagement on Facebook, even though there’s more followers on Twitter and Nick expresses the frustration a lot of page owners feel, the lack of “reach”.

We share a few tips and tricks and we’d love to hear your what has and hasn’t worked for you. Record an audio clip and send it to feedback@podcastersgrouptherapy.com
