286 How My Production Quality Has Evolved Over 3000 Episodes And Why I Don’t Like Anything On Facebook
Summary: How My Production Quality Has Evolved Over 3000 Episodes I received a question from Matt on the voicemail feedback hotline. He said that he'd love to have a link to my first episode and possibly have me put together a montage of my production quality evolution over the years. In this episode I actually do share some of the audio from my very first episode EVER which you can find at http://gspn.tv/firstepisode. I also include several other first episodes from many other shows that I've produced. It was a lot of fun to actually go back and hear these things again myself, and I hope that it encourages all of you that you have to start somewhere. You'll never come out sounding just like the Podcast Answer Man does in episode #286. In fact, if you listen to this episode, you'll find out that even I didn't start out sounding like I do today. In case you don't know, I have a lot of other podcasts in addition to Podcast Answer Man, so be sure to check out my episode guide to see a list of more than 3,000 podcast episodes that I've produced. Personal Plug of The Week This weekís personal plug of the week is for James Dering's Better Piano Podcast. I love the way that James took his gifts, talents and passions and created a podcast around that. He's done a wonderful job of bringing high-quality content both in terms of of audio quality as well as the type of content he's producing. I encourage you to listen to episode 003 of his show and if you like it, be sure to let him know that you heard about him from Podcast Answer Man. Get Notifications From All Posts to Fan Pages You Like! This week's Social Media Segment was inspired by this blog post by Mark Cuban. In this episode I share this favorite quote from the article: But this over-complication via algorithm...creates a financial problem for brands. By trying to be an incredibly efficient information delivery source, they confine our ability to organically reach most of our followers to using Sponsored Posts. They also significantly increase our costs because if we create a post that doesnít engage our followers to the level the algorithm expects it to, it can impact our ability to be seen in the future. Talk about pressure. Put up a post , but be sure that Edgerank doesnít think it sucks. Erik and I also talk about an article that one of our listeners, Sarah, shared about how you can now be notified whenever posts are made to fan pages you like. All you have to do is hover over the "like" button on the page, and then select "get notifications." Special thanks to Sarah for sending us this story! I also share some of my obsessive-compulsive decisions that I've recently made regarding my Facebook personal profile and I also explain why at this time, I no longer like any brands on Facebook.
