Today’s Killer Startup: Irresistible Podcasting
Irresistible Podcasting is “a step-by-step guide to launching and growing a podcast that can’t be ignored.”
Why It’s A Killer Startup:
2014 was the year of the podcast. The unexpected explosive success of the This American Life spinoff Serial was perhaps the most explicit example of how a media format that previously belonged to only nerds and tech geeks is fast becoming mainstream. For those of us in the startup world, the formation of Gimlet Media and the accompanying Startup Podcast by TAL’s Alex Blumberg is another sign – podcasts are here to stay.
All of that means that more and more of us are considering what it takes to create a successful podcast. What technology do you need? How do you reach your audience? What should the content be? While it may seem like all you have to do is start recording and put it out there, the reality is much more complicated.
Irresistible Podcasting was created by Adam Clark, a serial podcaster (not to be confused with a Serial podcaster, of course) and professional geek who has launched multiple successful podcasts and helped found a podcast network. He’s offering all of his expertise in an 11-week course on how to follow in his footsteps. He’ll help you define your goal and your audience, figure out how to create great content and a clear brand, set up a home studio for recording, learn audio production, and every other step right up until the final, “bonus” week: make money.
When Irresistible Podcasting launches on February 24, 2015, it will cost $299 for the entire course. However, Adam is offering a tiered price deal until then. The first person to purchase the course paid $1. The second paid $2. That number will keep going up as more and more people jump on board to learn from Adam’s impressive experience as a podcaster.
If you think 2015 is going to blow 2014 out of the water when it comes to podcasting and you’re ready to start one of your own – whether to further your position as a thought leader, to promote your startup, or just to entertain – consider starting the process by purchasing Adam Clark’s Irresistible Podcasting course.
