Need to Move Your Podcast? Slow down so you don’t botch up your good work.

Need to Move Your Podcast? Slow down so you don’t botch up your good work.

To Do list before you move your podcast

You created this great podcast, or so you thought, and you liked how it was set up, but not really. And you have new team members and they say, "I hate that software, I hate that platform, let's do something better." Or maybe even that platform went away or stopped being as effective, whatever the reason there's a need for a move. But there are some different types of moves. This episode is going to cover what you need to be aware of, how you can prep, and how you can avoid getting missed listeners and losing all your subscribers.

If you do need to move your show and this list is too daunting, reach out to [email protected] - The team at Funnel Media Group can help you with this transition so nothing is missed.

Behind the Mic - Be part of our supportive family

Let's talk about television families.

The good:
The Brady, the Flintstone, Huxtable, Barone, Evans, Drummond & Jackson, Addams, Munster, Cleaver, Duke, Clampett, Arnolds, Jetsons, Partidge, Carwright, Bradford, Cunningham, Ingals, and Kyle Families

Then the not so good but lovable
Bluth, Simpson, Griffin, Bunker, Bundy, Belcher

And the bad.
Soprano, Ewing, Roy, Dutton, Carrington, House of Lannister, and Fisher Families

When we talk about the Lone Ranger, yes, he had one support team member, surly as he could be from time to time. I'm sure he also shook his head at the guy he worked with at how ridiculous and helpless he could be.

How to be a Great podcast Host People Will Want to Listen To

How to be a Great podcast Host People Will Want to Listen To

Susan Finch on Funnel Radio's Behind the Mic

 

It's as much about the content as it is your voice. Many times I hear hosts that think they can just randomly start talking. Sometimes it's difficult to follow as they dart around taking tangents without ever completing a point or thought. They may have a fabulous voice, but what am I gaining by listening? I almost need a whiteboard to draw pictures and take notes to track them.

Other hosts don't even realize how organized their thoughts are and naturally speak in a logical order providing a ton of helpful information, but their speech patterns, ambient noises, poor equipment make it difficult to hear their wisdom and insights.

Both of these issues can be hedged off with a few simple tips.
