Keeping your social media audience engaged is increasingly challenging in line with the growing level of noise online. One way to get the conversation started and continuing is to ask questions that intrigue and excite your followers. In this episode, I'm sharing five basic question starters that, with a bit of imagination and research, can generate an endless supply of engagement starters.
When you’re creating challenging podcast episodes, you rarely push on because you think they will ultimately become your most fulfilling. But a funny thing happens with hindsight. As you look back on the moments that could have derailed the journey, you realise just how much you gained in those difficult episodes. And sometimes it takes a reminder from someone who listens to nudge you towards that conclusion. In the latest episode, I’m answering a question shared by Sixteen Ramos, who asked me what the most challenging yet ultimately fulfilling episode was of The Content Fix to date. In the end, I couldn’t choose just one, so I’m counting them down and sharing the lessons learned instead.
Have you ever wondered if it is worth starting a podcast? On the one year anniversary of my first 'solo' podcasting journey, I've got a few answers for you. One year of podcasting. 58 episodes. 20 hours of content. Over 400 hours production, from concept through promotion of each episode. Starting a podcast was a natural next step for me. I’d worked on one before. I had plenty to say, and plenty of people I wanted to interview. But doing it on my own was a clear case of biting off more than I could chew. But I chewed. And chewed. And I keep on chewing. I always knew it would be a lot of hard work. Now I’m sharing whether or not it was worth it.
Freedom is one of the biggest appeals when it comes to starting an online business. But if the set up time and costs aren’t for you, here’s how to buy an existing one instead. Jaryd Krause is the host of the podcast Buying Online Businesses and in this episode, he shares his years of experience by answering the important questions like why you would buy an online business, what sort of businesses you can buy, how much it costs, where to go and the important processes you need to know to avoid expensive mistakes. Buying an existing online business is unlikely to be a bargain, but if you want to hit the ground running as the boss of your own virtual enterprise from day one, it’s an option well worth exploring.
