snqualitycontrolTen Common Mistakes That New Podcasters Make
In this episode, of Podcast Answer Man, I share ten of the most common mistakes that I have seen thousands of brand new podcasters make.

I not only share my thoughts on why these are mistakes, I also give suggestions of what you can do if you have made any of these mistakes yourself.

  • A lot of knowledge but little passion for the topic
  • No clear purpose/reason for doing the show / No Specific Goals
  • Having the “Show Me The Money” attitude
  • Expecting massive success at the launch of the podcast
  • Focusing on stats instead of existing audience
  • Not having a mailing list from the beginning
  • Wanting to launch several shows at once
  • Really bad audio quality
  • Waiting to launch until everything is perfect!
  • Not releasing your podcast as a .mp3 file.

I invited Steve to come and share some thoughts on his experience with podcasting over the past two years.
