 269 New Social Media Strategy And My New Sony MDR-7506 Headphones | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 55:24

Sony MDR-7506 Headphones For the past several years, I had been using Bose AE2 style headphones. When I was in NYC for BlogWorld & New Media Expo, I visited the SiriusXM studios. While in the studio, I noticed that they only used Sony MDR-7506 headphones. I was so pleased with the sound quality that I decided to order myself a pair so that I could compare them, side by side, with my Bose Headphones. In this episode, I share my full thoughts on why I'm switching over to these new headphones.

Learn How Audio Podcasting Has Benefited Existing Bloggers! At this years's BlogWorld & New Media Expo's NYC event, I was thrilled to have my great friend, Pat Flynn, put together a panel titled "More Traffic, More Authority, More Customers: Why All Bloggers Should Be Podcasting." The description of the session read: Successful bloggers don’t just blog anymore – they’re everywhere. The panelists in this session will share how podcasting in particular has taken their blog and brand to the next level, helping them get more traffic, more authority and more customers with this overlooked, but powerful and untapped medium. In this week's episode, I share the audio recording from this session in hopes that it will help inspire other bloggers to consider their potential audience that would prefer to hear them speak over reading what they write on their blog. Quotes Worth Considering: - Podcasting is a chance to go deeper with my existing community and a way to reach a whole new community. Adam Baker - I feel like I have a stronger connection to the podcasters I listen to than the bloggers that I read. - Adam Baker - I wanted a platform to allow me to interview experts in my industry. #ReasonsToPodcast - Derek Halpern & Katie Davis. - 20% of those who now read my blog today say that they found me because of my audio podcast. - Pat Flynn - My traffic, to my site, shot up 69% after the launch of my audio podcast. - Derek Halpern Links for the panelists: Pat Flynn - SmartPassiveIncome.com Adam Baker - ManVsDebt.com Derek Halpern - SocialTriggers.com Katie Davis - KatieDavis.com Podcast Artwork for $175 Most podcasters do not invest enough into the artwork for their podcast.

 266 Apple Gets Podcasts App Right! Well Almost! – Take Your Community On A Cruise – And My Thoughts On The Freemium Model & More! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 50:38

It Was No Rumor! Apple Releases Official Podcasts App! In last week's episode, I shared the rumors and speculation that surrounded the idea that Apple might release a standalone Podcasts App for iOS. Earlier this week, Apple actually released such an app. Personally, I'm thinking that they may have rushed it out the door due to the amount of information that had been leaked about it. I think this because the app, while I have plenty of good things to say about it, does seem to be a bit buggy and lacks the typical Apple polish when it comes to user interface. Apple's Description of the app: Podcasts app is the easiest way to discover, subscribe to, and play your favorite podcasts on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Explore hundreds of thousands of free audio and video podcasts from the Podcasts Catalog, and play the most popular podcasts, organized for you by topic, with the all-new Top Stations feature. Features that Apple lists: Features: - Enjoy all of your audio and video podcasts in a single app - Explore hundreds of thousands of podcasts including shows in over 40 languages - Try the innovative new Top Stations feature to find new podcast series in a variety of topics, including arts, business, comedy, music, news, sports, and more. - Browse by audio or video podcasts, or see what's most popular in Top Charts - Tap Subscribe for your favorites and automatically receive new episodes for free as they become available - Stream episodes or download to listen while offline - Skip forward and back using simple playback controls - Turn on Sleep Timer to automatically stop playing a podcast while listening in bed - Share your favorite episodes with friends using Twitter, Messages, and Mail - Optionally sync your favorite episodes from iTunes on your Mac or PC - Sync your episode playback for seamless transition between devices Jesse Poteet, a member of the gspn.tv community states that, "I like the episode playback sync.... only thing missing from that is the sync doesn't work on the desktop iTunes... only on mobile devices" With the limited amount of time that I had to play with the application, I have a few slight concerns. Like the iBooks Application, I had to choose to install it and I have the ability to delete it. While the user interface is not nearly as bad as I thought it might be, it does take a bit to get used to. I notice that there is not currently a way to write a review for a podcast from the app. There is no way to add a podcast rss feed that is not listed in iTunes. Currently, there is no way to search for a podcast by Podcast Author, though, for now, you could put your name on the title line of your podcast. Regardless of the slight concerns that I have listed above, I am very excited about a few things when it comes to how Apple Approached their podcasts app. Apple is featuring this in the iTunes Desktop App Store pretty heavily. They are also featuring this app in the App Store for all iOS Devices. After only three days, the Podcasts App is already in the #3 position for Top Downloaded Apps available for free! Engadget reported, in April 2012, that there are 365 Million iOS Devices in play today! That means a lot of EXPOSURE for the Podcasting Platform. More than anything else, I am assuming that subscriptions and downloads via this app will count towards itunes Ranking! I'm moving ALL OF MY SUBSCRIPTIONS to the new Podcasts App so that I can make sure the podcasters that I subscribe to get the full benefit of the rankings that they deserve. Here's the deal, I'm sure there are more great things that could be said about the application. Also, I am certain that there are a host of other flaws and issues that I had not yet come across in the limited time I played with the App before recording this episode. In fact, I found that the app will not continue to play the audio of a video podcast in the background if the application is closed. Yes,

 264 Facebook Uses Mafia Tactics And Top Ten BlogWorld & New Media Expo NYC Experiences | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:04:55

Facebook Uses Mafia Tactics Not long ago, Facebook introduced the ability for you to promote your page posts. Facebook says that "promoted posts are a simple way to reach more of the people who like your Page and their friends." In this week's episode, I invite our GSPN Social Media Correspondent, Erik J. Fisher, to join me to discuss whether or not it feels a bit sleazy to have Facebook come out and charge brands to actually get their messages to their loyal fans who have already shared that they want to receive these updates. Erik's defense of Facebook's pay to promote practice goes back to the discussion that he and I had about Facebook's Edge Rank back in episode 247. I'd be interested to hear what you think about this topic in the comments section below. Top Ten BlogWorld & New Media Expo NYC Experiences Many of you know that I didn't produce an episode last week because I was in New York City for BlogWorld & New Media Expo. Since Erik was also there, I invited him to hang out with me for the rest of the episode so that we could both share our thoughts on the conference and communicate how you can actually make yourself responsible for making memorable experiences from going to such events. For those who might be interested, I recorded a special episode of Pursuing A Balanced Life where Fr. Roderick and I actually shared our day by day experiences while sitting in an Irish Pub just off Times Square. You can listen to that episode by clicking here. I also shared some great photos on Facebook. The New Name For BlogWorld As promised, BlogWorld & New Media Expo was officially rebranded and the new name of the conference was announced in NYC. Moving forward, the conference will be named New Media Expo (NMX). If you would like to speak on the podcasting track for NMX in Las Vegas in January, please be sure to fill out this speaker submission form.

 262 Making Podcasts Cool Again? Player.fm Playa Please! – Interview With Angelo Mandato, Creator of PowerPress – And So Much More! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:10:27

Making Podcasts Cool Again? Playa Please! This past weekend, someone sent me a link to an article on Gigaom.com. The article was titled "Player FM makes podcasts look cool again." The first few works of the article stated... "Podcasts may have fallen a bit out of fashion lately, but the new cloud-based podcast playback and discovery platformPlayer FM hopes that you’ll give the medium another chance." It cracks me up up when people make statements like this about podcasting. In this episode, I share my full reaction to this article and also share my initial thoughts about the Player.fm service created by former Google employee, Michael Mahemoff. Random Plug of The Week This week's random plug of the week goes out to the The Prospecting Minute Podcast by Steve Kloyda.

In this episode, I institute a new segment that I hope to incorporate from time to time call "A Word of Wisdom." This week's Word of Wisdom is inspired by a recent Seth Godin blog post titled "You Will Be Judged, Or You Will Be Ignored." Has fear of being judged kept you from creating work that helps share your message with the world? Interview WIth Angelo Mandato I'm very delighted to share a recent interview that I did with Angelo Mandato, the creator of the PowerPress Podcasting Plugin. What's amazing is that I didn't even know that there was a video podcast devoted to the PowerPress plugin. One of my favorite things is that the PowerPress plugin was created with the best interests of the podcasting community in mind. Not only is it free, but it has an amazing support community behind it. I really hope that you enjoy the interview with Angelo.

In this episode, I talked with Michael about his new book titled Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. In the book, he shares his story about how he built the platform that he has today in the online world.

Michael shares a little insight into how he went about getting noticed in his niche market. I highly encourage you to pick up the PHYSICAL COPY of Michael's book between Monday, May 21st and Friday, May 24th from one of the retailers listed at http://MichaelHyatt.com/platform.

The first question that Tommy asked was "How many downloads is a good number for a podcast." He also asked about whether or not he should break down this podcast into a shorter version and a longer version for his podcast. I provide my thoughts on both of these questions in the episode. iTunes Ratings & Reviews I started Podcast Answer Man in December of 2006.
