Show 068 Quick-Guide

  • Elsie’s new obsession - Downton Abbey - and so of course we go off an a tangent!

  • Advertising, sponsors and media kits people! That’s our next webinar!!!

  • Elsie was doing some testing people - and Jessica wonders - hmmmm.

  • Give us some feedback on the quality of our audio! We’re doing something awesome :)

  • Skype alternatives begin!

    • Zoom

      • There is a free account

      • It provides a recording - nice quality

      • You can take the video off and only use audio

      • They have a smartphone app

      • You download the client software

    • Fuze

      • It supports and amazing amount of people in a room with video!

      • There is a free account BUT does not provide a recording through Fuze

      • You can choose to do the conversation audio only

      • You need to record on your own, but a great way to connect with your people

      • They have a smartphone app

      • You download the client software

    • Go To Meeting

      • It is paid, no free account

      • You get the recording

      • You can just do audio if you want

      • They have a smartphone app

      • You download the client software

    • Uberconference

      • There is a free account

      • Surprising good quality from Uberconference

      • If both people are using a microphone, it sounds awesome, if your guest is on the telephone the levels are drastically off

      • It is browser based - no downloaded

    • Blab/Podclear

      • The conversation will not be private - it is a public conversation

      • There is no way to do audio only

      • They provide the recording for you, which is decent

      • It’s free!

    • Google Hangouts

      • You can do a private hangout

      • You do have the option of doing audio (I was wrong)

    • Other free conferencing services

      • not the best - use Uberconference

    • Double-enders

      • Work best when you are dealing with another podcaster or someone that has a microphone and knows how to record themselves.

    • Ringr

      • Both guests NEED to have the app downloaded

      • Both people need to be on the phone

      • Post uploading to the Ringr service might be an issue

    • RECAP

      • NOT software - this is a hardware solution

      • There might be a learning curve and workflow to make this work

  • Blue Microphones and their controversial giant poster with woman + fallic Yeti

  • Responses from the community about the Blue Microphones marketing at TwitchCon

  • Where does the marketing responsibility lie?

  • What it takes to get a marketing campaign out - a play by play by Jessica

  • Elsie wants to talk to the CEO of Blue Microphones

Feedback request!
