YouTube Thoughts For Podcasters
I can't believe that I have barely had any coverage of YouTube here on Podcast Answer Man. In this episode, I have Erik Fisher join me for an extended Social Media Segment to spend a great deal of time talking about YouTube and how podcasters can make use of this wonderful distribution channel.
Personal Plug of The Week
Back of February 16th, I received an email from LouAnn Clark. Here's what she wrote….
Hi, Cliff. We didn't officially meet at Michael Hyatt's Platform Conference, but I was in the audience, and I was wowed by your presentation. I came home and started looking for a place to put a recording studio; it turns out I have a closet that looks close to perfect! I'll be ordering equipment from you soon.
I said on social media that the podcast went from tenth to first on my list. I am beyond excited about this. As a former broadcaster, I still yearn for my first love, radio. It looks like podcasting is a way to use my best gifts, have the most fun, and communicate my message about healthy thinking. I am a depression survivor who has learned to thrive; I am ten years into recovery after more than twenty years of depression, and I want to share my “hows” with others who are suffering.
Thanks again for sharing your expertise at Platform. You were already on my list (I'm a huge fan of Dan Miller's) and it was a real pleasure to learn from you firsthand. Thanks for the free resources on your website. I'm on lesson 7 and raring to go! I have a goal of putting my podcast online by March 18.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We exchanged some emails back and forth and she, soon after, purchased the Podcast Answer Man equipment package found at http://PodcastAnswerMan.com/equipment.
On March 17th, one day before the deadline set for achieving her goal, LouAnn sent me the following email.
Cliff, I wanted to let you know that my Decided Difference podcast was launched today! It is still “under review” in iTunes, but it's up on my blog if you want to check it out.
The initial feedback I am getting is from people saying they want to hear more. WIN!
I love my equipment, and your podcasting 101 got me up and running.
Here is a photo of me in my tiny studio. I love it!
I listened to her first episode and it is AWESOME!
Oh… And BTW, she is now listed in iTunes. I just posted a review with a 5 star rating!

Upcoming Event Schedule
One of my favorite things about traveling to, and speaking at conferences, is meeting members of my community. I always make it a point to host a community meetup wherever I travel.
Below is a list of events that you might be interested in. If you can make it to any of these events, I'd love to have the opportunity to meet you. If you are not able to attend the event, but are in that area, I'd still love for you to come to the personal community meetup that I will host in that town.

The Podcast Mastermind
One of the reasons that I love working with podcasters so much is due to the fact that they are influencing someone every single time they produce a podcast episode. The world needs great leaders! I believe that podcasters who take their leadership position seriously can make a positive difference in the lives of others. The world needs you and your message! They need you to be a leader!
Many people ask me how to grow the audience of their podcast. I believe that one of the best things you can do is to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! To take yourself seriously! To consider yourself to be a professional!
Are you willing to invest in your future success?
Are you willing to be the greatest leader you can be?
Are you willing to commit to your personal and professional growth?
If so, please consider joining The Podcast Mastermind!
