The Benefits Of Transcribing Your Podcast

0

If you’re wondering why you should transcribe your podcast, start by considering that the easiest way to find something on the internet (any kind of media – audio, video, images) is through text. By providing a text version, or a transcript, of your podcast’s episodes you can improve its accessibility, shareability, and be able to repurpose that valuable content later on.  It also improves your listeners’ experience, giving them an alternative way to consume your content when tuning in isn’t possible.

“Text is the secret. Converting podcast recordings into a transcript makes it possible for podcast producers to give listeners a better experience.” (Observer.com)

Moreover, as mentioned before, since web searches are text based, a transcript will open up new opportunities; you’ll be able to easily redact your content into blog posts, articles, presentations, and even books. Even your listeners will be able to quickly quote and share what they find valuable from your episode. Let’s take a deeper look at how transcriptions can benefit your podcast:

3 Social Media Strategies for FaithCasters

“If you build it, they will come.” The only person that ever worked out for was Kevin Costner. If you’re a podcaster and the only thing you’re doing to build your audience is publishing your podcast, then you may be living in your own “Field of Dreams.”

There are upwards of 180,000 podcasts currently circulating, clamoring for listeners in 2015. This means that the odds of your ideal listener finding you, without some “New and Noteworthy” push from i-Tunes can be quite slim. If you’re a faith-caster, the odds become even slimmer since the most popular podcasts tend to fall into the comedy, business, sports, or lifestyle categories.

In short, you have to work a little harder to drive your audience to your podcast. Since launching Branding for Believers, I’ve use three social media strategies that have really provided a boost in downloads and listenership.

How A Social Media Campaign Will Boost Podcast Subscriptions

0

 

According to “The Infinite Dial 2015,”a study produced by Edison Research and Triton Digital, researchers found that 49% of the public are familiar with the term podcasting and 33% have listened to podcasts. Moreover, Facebook is the most used social media channel with nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of people using the service.

With podcasting growing in popularity, social media can be used as a catalyst to increase your podcast’s growth. Running a social media campaign is much more than gaining organic reach.

As part of your digital marketing strategy, social media campaigns can yield results beyond the normal constraints. Gains like brand awareness, website traffic, and podcast subscriptions are just a few additional by-products.

A social media campaign doesn’t begin when you send out a tweet. Like Spreaker podcasters understand, trends drive the efforts of the most successful brands. Depending on the scale of your campaign, you should spend days, even weeks just planning.

Social media is a powerful marketing tool. It opens doors to gaining personal connections with your podcast subscribers. To benefit the most, develop a strategy that will increase your reach and save yourself time.
