Twitter for Podcasters – #21

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

Service of the Week

We’re talking about the hot new kid on the block, blab. We have given the service a try and share our experience. We also talk about how this service could be used by podcasters.

Podcast Movement Preview – #18

Podcast Movement is coming up soon – July 31st through August 2nd and that’s what we’re talking about on this episode of Podcasters Group Therapy.

News

  • Glenn Beck turned out to be a huge (yet polarizing) “get” for the Podcast Movement fellows and unfortunately, Beck had to cancel for health reasons.
  • Upon hearing the news of Beck canceling, you might have been thinking “ANOTHER major speaker cancellation for a podcasting conference? WTF?!”  Well, that’s exactly what Podcast Movement’s response to the development was…WTF! Marc Maron!  Maron is one of the biggest names in podcasting and the dude just interviewed President Obama on his podcast and he is now scheduled to speak at Podcast Movement, 2015.

 

Podcast Movement

The three of us will be heading to Fort Worth, Texas for Podcast Movement and we dedicate almost this entire episode on the conference. We talk about which sessions and speakers we’re looking forward to the most, we share our opinions on the apparent quality of the sessions and we share some tips for first-timer podcast conference attendees.
