PNME 2007: Videoblogging in 5 Steps

GarfieldSteve.gifPNME 2007 #45 Videoblogging in 5 Steps

It’s easy to capture and share fleeting moments with video. Don’t be intimidated by all the technical aspects of capturing and posting video to the web. It’s very easy to get started. Using a regular digital still camera or a cell phone, you can capture and share video and easily post it to the web. In this session Steve will show you how you can shoot, edit and upload video to a blog in five easy steps.
1. Capture video with a camera
2. Load it onto your computer
3. Edit the video (optional)
4. Upload it to the web
5. Post it to a blog
Once you get these steps down, you can start thinking about the quality of your audio and video. What type of camera you want to use. Where to post your videos for the most exposure. Steve will show you how easy it is to get started with video blogging and then open the session up for a discussion of how to move from capturing and sharing fleeting moments to producing more advanced types of productions.

PNME 2007: Growing Your Audience in a Podfaded World

LawrenceDavid.gifPNME 2007 #44 Growing Your Audience in a Podfaded World

We’re a few years in on the whole podcast/netcast thing, and everyone’s getting testy. Podcasters are getting testy because listener growth is flatlining, and increasing the numbers in their audience is getting harder to do. Why? Because podcast listeners, who are also getting testy, are feeling that way for a very good reason: they feel abandoned by testy podcasters who up and quit doing their podcast, because they can’t grow their audience. Which leaves more listeners with more time to listen to the podcasts you make, and we’ll show you the steps that you need to take to make them part of your audience – permanently. It’s not just about asking for a vote at the beginning of each month, and it doesn’t end with an amorphous “viral marketing campaign” – the gaps are filled in with what the pros use to promote themselves and gain ratings.

Do you Like Transcripts?

About a week ago we tried an experiment here on our Podcast Academy site. We posted an entire transcript of one of the hour long presentations from the New Media Expo. No particular reason we picked the one we did, in fact we had already posted it once before, it was just a quick and easy one for the transcriber to pull a copy of. Although we’re all podcast fans, it’s important to keep in mind that making the content available in a variety of formats helps us all reach a broader audience.

I’m curious if anyone has any feedback. Is this a helpful tool if we continued to provide them?

I saw the advantages as:

  • You can link to specific quotes on the transcript pages.
  • It increases the relevance of content rich presentations for search.
  • Allows presenters one more way to provide their presentations.
  • All around good resource.

Obviously there is some cost involved (actually a significant cost) if we continue to do this. No big secret, if you see the pages, we deployed some ads. So we’ll continue to monitor our test to see if it is economically viable on a mass scale for all 153 hours of audio.

Meanwhile, if you like the transcript idea I’d appreciate you thoughts.  Here’s the link to the transcript post.

Thanks to Paul Colligan for the nudge to test this.
