What’s coming in 2013 – TAP109


2013 will be a big year of change for The Audacity to Podcast! I hope my sharing of my plans will inspire your podcasting.

How will you podcast differently in 2013?

Many people like to make New Year’s resolutions. I like to consider these goals, and they should be reasonable.

But beyond special goals or resolutions, how are you planning to podcast differently in the coming year? Will you be changing your branding, enhancing your marketing, redesigning your website, jumping into video, starting a new podcast, or anything else different from how you podcasted in 2012?

I would love to include your thoughts in an upcoming episode of The Audacity to Podcast!

Mobile-friendly website

Mobile devices now account for a large percentage of web traffic. Because of this, I’ve been working to “responsivize” all of the Noodle.mx Network podcast websites. The Audacity to Podcast will be first and launching in the first week of January, 2013.

CES 2013 coverage

The 2013 Consumer Electronic Show is in Las Vegas January 8–11 and I’ll be there with the TechPodcasts Network to cover it. I’ll record video interviews, participate in live CES coverage at tpn.tv, and share what I think will be most interesting to podcasters and other media producers.

More videos

I recently purchased a Canon T4i digital SLR camera ($859 on B&H, $999 on Amazon.com). It records gorgeous HD video! This wasn’t just a toy, but a business tool and it’s time to put it to use.

My new videos will cover:

  • quick podcasting answers,
  • screencast tutorials,
  • podcasting gear reviews,
  • audio and video equipment how-tos,
  • and more!

WordPress plugins

I’m currently developing WordPress plugins to simplify some of the things I do on my podcast websites, and I’ll eventually release these as either a free, “freemium,” or premium plugins to WordPress. Hint: one of them does some beautiful things with PowerPress.

Digital products

Having my DSLR camera and better video-editing software, I plan to product some training products and an ebook or two. These will come in at various price points, but I’ll give early testers a discount.

Training and consulting

To help you learn how to podcast, launch your podcast website, or optimize your current podcast and workflow, I’ll refine my one-on-one and group training offerings.

Tip jar

I will always keep the regular episodes of The Audacity to Podcast free. But many listeners have also asked for a simple way to leave monetary tips

Tweaked shownotes titles

As you may have noticed, I’ve already tweaked my episode titles for how they show up in iTunes and on the website. Instead of starting episode titles with the abbreviation and episode number (“TAP109: What’s coming in 2013″), I’m moving the “code” to the end (“What’s coming in 2013 – TAP109″).

This won’t affect my SEO because I always write a different title that Google and search-engine users will see.

Podcasting news and deals

Podcasters often need upgraded equipment, software, or want to know about the industry and tools that are coming out. In 2013, I’ll blog about more of these here on the website to help you get the stuff you need and save.

I can help you launch or improve your podcast

I'm available for one-on-one consulting to help you launch or improve your podcast.

    I am so looking forward to the video version of the show.

  • Jim Caso

    Can you recommend a video editing software? I use Audition to edit my audio. Thanks

      I use Adobe Premiere Pro. Final Cut (OS X) and Sony Vegas Video (Windows) are also really good.

    Hi Daniel

    Thanks for an extremely informative podcast. I’ve been ‘casting for almost exactly 5 years, but I’m still picking things up from your tips!

    One thing I wanted to respond to is your tweaking of the show title. I download all podcasts onto my Android phone with BeyondPod (and, before any suggestions that it’s a BeyondPod issue, it’s not!) and because there is limited screen real estate on a mobile device, I find the abbreviation at the beginning of the show title a really good way of identifying the show from which a particular podcast came… particularly if I’m looking at the full list of all downloaded episodes of all podcasts. As it happens, we put the full showname and episode number at the beginning of our show titles, but that’s because the number is the identifying factor of our show… the phrase that accompanies the title is more for entertainment than information. Regardless, given the choice, I would vote to put TAP109 (e.g.) back to the beginning of the show notes title.

    All the best,

      That’s certainly another valid perspective. But I also consider the screen real estate issue and think that “TAP109″ takes up too much space and communicates nothing about the episode contents.

      But I can see the point for our clean-comedy podcast, where the episode titles are just something witty.

    Recently I was REALLY low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – cdes
