Everywhere you turn there's a new podcasting guroob pooping up.
Their filthy mouths full of stinking lies hoping you'll fall for their antics and give them your hard earned cashola.
I don't want that for you,
That's why I'm bringing you this new series on “The lies about podcasting” and dispelling some of the most popular myths out there.
In my first note I told you how you don't need to be techy to have a podcast show, you just need to keep things simple.
In my second note you found out why everyone should NOT be podcasting.
And today you're going to see what causes most podcasts to fail before they even start.
Myth #3: You can record as you go
There’s this weird phenomenon in podcasting where the average podcast show will die a long and lonely death after around 10 shows.
Here’s how it works:
You get started and you’re gung-ho about your show. You don’t want to waste any time so you record one show, do all the work to get it into iTunes and once you go live you’re off to the races. You record a show this week and it airs next week. You do that for a while, then you hit a snag and you’re behind.
You record a last minute show today that airs tomorrow. Phew, that was close. But now you’re behind.
Something else comes up and you say, “Screw it, I’ll just skip this week’s show.” Then you’ve fallen into the trap, you’re behind, you’re missing shows, and before you know it you miss another and another.
Then you’re listeners begin to wonder what happened to you as they replace your show with someone else's. When you finally get around to posting a new show you get zero downloads and no one is listening – your podcast has faded out.
This is the main reason we won't launch a show until you have at least 2 months worth in your vault.
It's also the reason our clients say we make things so easy for them
When we first start with a new client we put them on a production schedule so they only have to record once every 4 weeks.
Combine this with their vault of eight show and they're usually 6-8 weeks ahead of schedule.
This takes a ton of pressure off them and keeps podcasting fun.
That’s why you need to have a set production schedule and at least 2 months of shows in your vault before you launch.
Speaking of launching a show,
Me and my team have two spots opening up next week to help you launch your show.

In my next note I'll show you why most podcast shows miss the mark when they launch and end up with no one listening.
See you then,
