I laughed a lot while watching #SNL40 thinking back about all the laughs and skits that I enjoyed.... Then cause I can never turn my social media & personal branding mind off, I thought... What makes them so special why have they lasted so long??“Saturday Night Live 40″ now holds the record for the largest Twitter attention #SNL40…On this episode of iSocialTalks I talk about what struck me while watching, as much as I love comedy and tv shows the...

Podcasting is a great outlet for brands and leaders but it's not easy and like +Mallie Hart stated... Not only is there time involved but also its something you have to be dedicated too as consistency is huge! 
 
Anyone who actually regularly puts out a #podcast  is snorting out loud when they read #3. 

It's not that easy to put out a podcast. You've got to schedule guests, put together the sound and content files, etc. And that's just part of it!

When you consider the amount of time put into the effort, it certainly isn't all that inexpensive, either.

This leads me to disagree with the title and premise of the article. There's no way that EVERY entrepreneur needs to podcast. 

I'm guessing many of my fellow #podcasting  peeps would agree, right +Jeff Sieh, +Brooke Ballard, +Brian Fanzo, etc.?
Ultimately, it's a can't-lose proposition: You need to gain the attention of your market, and podcasting helps you generate a buzz like no other technology out there. So go get what's yours by attracting a steady stream of prequalified clients and cu...

Employment
  • Broadsuite
    Chief Digital Officer & Partner, 2014 - present
    At Broadsuite I will be focusing on initiatives that connect paid, owned and earned digital channels through maximizing community involvement and content utilizing social and technology. What exactly does that mean? I’ll be teaching and leading change helping B2B’s, small businesses and technology companies connect, communicate and become active members of their communities both internal with employee advocacy and personal branding and externally utilizing community events such as weekly Google+ hangouts, Twitter Chats and video podcasts. I’ll be helping brands orchestrate content marketing tactics that situate their brands at the moments that matter to their audiences by focusing on creating content and social engagement that provides value while helping customers solve problems where often times earned and owned will trump paid. I’m excited to help brands embrace this change and I know change is scary and slow for many I believe by joining Broadsuite I will have the team and tools necessary to make this happen.
