Today, I spent sometime updating the iTunes description of the Podcast Answer Man podcast.
The old description used to start off with “This is THE PODCAST about Podcasting! Helping you take your show to the “next level.” However, this no longer accurately describes what each podcast episode is focused on. For this reason, I’ve changed the description to the following…
Thanks for checking out the Podcast Answer Man podcast. My name is Cliff Ravenscraft (aka The Podcast Answer Man). I started podcasting, as a hobby, back in December 2005. Since that time, I've created more than 30 different shows and have produced over 3,200 podcast episodes of my very own.
In December 2006, I launched this Podcast Answer Man podcast and my podcast coaching/consulting business at PodcastAnswerMan.com. I have personally helped thousands of people launch extremely successful podcasts through one-on-one coaching and consulting and through my Podcasting A to Z online training course.
My free podcasting tutorial at LearnHowToPodcast.com has been used by tens of thousands of people. Thousands of these folks were able to use what they learned there to launch a podcast without needing to purchase a single product or service from me, which was my goal.
I believe that podcasting has the power to change the world, one person at a time. I've experienced this firsthand and I left my eleven year career in insurance, in January 2008, to pursue my passion for podcasting, full-time, and helping others launch their own podcasting journey.
This show started out as a podcast all about the technical details and procedures related to podcasting. However, after a few hundred weekly episodes (I'm nearing episode 400 as I am writing this updated description), I had got to the place where pretty much every question that had ever come in had been answered at some point in the archives.
I have found that an overwhelming majority of my audience already have a podcast and no longer need all the basic technical information related to podcasting. Instead, they tune in each week to hear me share my thoughts and insights on personal branding, building relationships with your audience, growing a business around your podcast, as well as personal and professional development.
Just to be clear, this show has a good amount of focus on my own personal journey through podcasting and building my own personal brand. Many episodes are made up of me sharing what I am facing in my own business/brand and what I'm learning through the process.
It is my mission share these experiences in hope that they will be a source of entertainment, education, encouragement and inspiration to those who are on a similar journey. My goal, for this show, is to help you take your message, your business and your life to the next level.
If you are looking for the basics on the technical details of Podcasting. I suggest that you start out with my free tutorial at http://LearnHowToPodcast.com. From there, check out the sidebar of my website at http://PodcastAnswerMan.com. You will find it very easy to find all the information that you are looking for. I've spent well over 10,000 hours building all the technical content, related to podcasting, that you'll find on my website.
