This is of value to those who wish to pursue podcasting, as it is a virtual event — that is an online conference via the Internet. There was no travel involved. And there were 6 evenings of 2 presentations each by speakers who delivered their content online — as well as a promise to have materials, slides, audio mp3 files, video replay and chatroom transcripts.
In this audio episode, we deliver a review of the Business Podcaster Summit online conference — aka a Virtual Event — for podcasters who want to establish podcasting as a business or take their podcasts to the next level in monetization or profit strategies.
As you will hear in this audio episode, this virtual event took place during the last two weeks of January, 2015. With a dozen sessions delivered by speakers chosen by two of the folks that started Podcast Movement (the conference), the topics ranged from Building Podcast Communities and Creating Mailing lists via Podcasting to Crowdfunding — and more.
I myself attended the conference online during the live presentations. I tried to get some of the materials, slides and download the audio episode and chatroom transcripts — although some of these were not readily available, even after a few days of the live session. The promise is that they will be available for download in the upcoming weeks.
Overall, I feel that the summit provided great value to those who could not attend the previous Podcast Movement conference (or get the content from the virtual ticket) — as most of these selected speakers also spoke at the August, 2014, conference (many times with the same or related presentation). In fact, this review highlights what I considered the top 3 sessions.
Of course, even though there were only 12 sessions of 50 to 60 minutes each, an attendee always wishes that there had been more sessions — especially from well-known business successes and thought leaders with monetization in podcasting, such as Paul Colligan, Daniel J Lewis and others (whose absence was considerably noticed by experienced podcasters).
Indeed, for those who could not attend the live sessions, the replays have a web page for those paying customers — and as soon as they are available, they will add more value to the podcasters who want to consume the content from this virtual event.
It will be interesting to see the content and sessions from the upcoming Podcast Movement 2015 conference and the subsequent Business Podcaster Summit. In addition to New Media Expo (or NMX 2015), these can provide podcasters with conferences targeted to podcasting.
