Ask Me Anything About Launching A Podcast (Webinar Replay)

by Cliff Ravenscraft on March 12, 2016

I recently hosted a free webinar, “Ask Me Anything About Launching A Podcast.” The purpose was to give people a taste of what my weekly group coaching calls are like during my, four week, Podcasting A to Z online coaching program.

The video below is an edited replay of the webinar featuring the most relevant questions for those who are seeking to launch their podcast.

There was no “hard sell” during the webinar. The goal was simply to showcase the level of information and value that I bring to the who might be be thinking about signing up for Podcasting A to Z.

    Hey Cliff, some questions on podcasting. I’ve just started podcasting, well, around 2 months I’ve doing it. How do i get better behind the mic, how do i stop the umms and taking breaths in-between talking especially when you can hear them and how do i become more confident and talk as if I’m talking to someone on the street. Do you have any advice on how to overcome these problems and are they normal for stating podcaster. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
