How Do You Define Value?

In today's show we talk about a new  Podcast Award, some weird stuff at Fiverr.com, and I answer what I feel is value, the big question how do YOU define value. What value do you get from the podcasts you listen to?

Daniel J. Lewis Has His Artwork and Copy Stolen on Fiverr.com

I wrote about this on a previous post, on a post on how Daniel J. Lewis from podcastcoverart.com had his artwork AND ADVERTISING COPY being used (illegally) by a person on fiverr.com so I talk about what I would use Fiverr for at THIS POST. I do mention Music Radio Creative on the show today and play a clip

How Do YOU Define Value?

On the Feed podcast a called had called in stated he was tired of Podcasting Gurus telling other people how to podcast. I agree. There is no one size fits all. I use the anology of Football. There are: Teams that run the ball well Teams that pass the ball well Teams with tremendous defense Teams with great special teams In the end, it doesn't matter how you get there as long as you end up in the end zone for a touchdown.

How I define Value

I looked at what I consume and found that most of the content I watch, listen, or read: Makes me laugh Makes me cry Makes me Think Makes me Groan Or it entertains and educates me.

Social Value

If you want people to talk about your show, it needs to provide social value. When I reviewed the Sci-Fi Movie podcast I was amazed at the level of trivia they had discovered about the movie they were talking about. If I was at a party full of people talking about Sci-fi, I would be armed with some seriously cool information. I would look good, and when people ask how I know so much I would say, "I listen to the Sc-fi Movie Podcast." This according to the book contagious, by Jonah Berger.
