Today we talk about creating great content that people will share, and take a slightly deeper dive into the topic by looking at WTF by Marc Maron.
When I reverse engineered the content I consumed, I noticed that no matter if its a book, magazine, TV show, or movie, whatever I'm consuming:
Made me laugh
Made me cry
Made me think
Entertained me.Ingredients in a Good Podcast
When I look at other elements that make a good podcast they:
Allow you to see the vulnerable side of the host or guest.
Have a host with great listening skills.
Include "Behind the Scenes" information that you can get anyplace else.
Include great follow up questions that reflect what the listener would ask.
Know your audience.
Create a focus group of listeners who will provide honest feedback.
The courage to say things that will draw them closer to their target while separating them from some.
Make me wonder what is going to happen next?Table of Contents for Episode 705
