Social media is a powerful tool. We, as podcasters and as listeners, use social media quite a lot. I often find myself turning to social when I want more information about the people who produce or voice the shows I’m interested in.
I’m not alone in this. So what I would like for you to do -- today, if you can, and if not, by the weekend, so set yourself a to-do item if necessary -- is to clean it/them up.
Recently I went on a big following hunt, adding lots of accounts by people from the podosphere. And I was largely disappointed.
I get that social media is 100% a personal choice. Just like with your podcast, you can do whatever you want.
But dammit, if you’re going to have a public social presence for yourself and/or your show, you should make it a little easier on the people who might wish to follow you there.
I’m eating my own dogfood and, right after this posts, will get on my own. I tend to (or at least I think I tend to) keep mine pretty clean always, but it never hurts to double-check. I hope you will join me and do the same.
Now, as you know, this is my final episode of Podcast Pontifications for 2019. I’m taking a long winter's break from the program over November and December. But that doesn't mean episodes of the show will stop.
I have a few special guests and other material lined up for people who follow/subscribe to the podcast. I won’t write extensive articles like this for those bonus episodes. They will be podcast-only exclusives until I return in January 2020. But if you’re reading this now, that means you’re already subscribed. You’ll still get them. Yay!
While I rest my vocal cords, I hope you’ll also join me an ~100 others in our private Flick group. On your mobile device, go to Flick.group/PodcastPontifications and sign up. It’s free to join and I may have some special goodies from me that go out to only this small community.
I'll be doubling down on client work while I’m off. If you are a business and you would like some strategic guidance on your podcasting efforts, get in touch with me: email@example.com or go to PodcastLaunch.pro to see how my team can help ease your burden when it comes to podcasting so you can stay focused on your business.
