Here are some of the top tips I loved from the presentation:
- Scott and Seth outline their journey to success using podcasting full length novels for free online – inspirational guys!
- Story-telling is an ancient form of communication and still just as effective. Podcasting is just serialising audiobooks with a subscription feed over the internet. You can reach more people this way!
- This is not a get rich quick scheme, this is a long term platform building and audience building technique that will eventually pay off with fans and sales if you persist. But then, writing is a lifelong adventure so why not start now!
- Reasons why podcasting your own books is so powerful, and why you don't need a professional to read your books. Your amateur voice brings the story to life in the best way possible.
- How to integrate your podcast into your blog, social networking and other platform building activities so you are not over-stretched
- Tips and Q&A on how to podcast including equipment
