52- THE PODCAST REPAIRMAN – an offering that may help screencasters

In this episode, we deliver an interview with Gary Leland about his new offering of THE PODCAST REPAIRMAN — both from the point of view of the Entrepreneur (i.e., why and how he entered the market of Podcast services), as well as that of the Podcaster.

PodcastRepairmanAs you will hear in this audio episode, Entrepreneur Gary Leland has multiple businesses for which he had built up infrastructure to handle sales via eCommerce, tangible goods, wallpaper, etc.

However, as a podcaster for over 10 years, Gary has also built the infrastructure for creating web sites, creating content, and publishing podcasts and videos for the sports niche and for podcasting itself.

Now Gary has entered into the world of Podcast Services with his services offering of THE PODCAST REPAIRMAN— as well as a related field, that of web site services in development and maintenance.

But Gary is not having the typical large launch of internet marketers. He is delivering the PERSONAL TOUCH and one-on-one service to his customers. He is planning organic growth. How? Mainly referrals and word-of-mouth marketing. In fact, he is not promoting or advertising his Podcast Repairman offering to the masses, as he will deliver excellent quality to his customers.

Although this may defy some conventional wisdom for Entrepreneurs, as well as podcasters and internet marketers, Gary has already started the beginnings of a growing business for those aspiring podcasters who do not want to spend the time and effort to learn or perform the labor-intensive tasks of creating, publishing and delivering podcast shows and podcast episodes.

Gary LelandAnd Gary’s price-point is very competitive for the market he is serving. He can produce a podcast episode per week. So, for an average of 4 episodes per month, he charges to what amounts to $150 per episode — which extremely aggressive, especially with the quality that he will deliver.

Also, Gary is offering to waive the $295 set-up fee for each show if you mention to him the word “Fred.” You can hear this near the end of the interview.

51- First glimpse at podcasts in Google Play Music directory

In this episode, this Podcaster delivers a “first looks” at the Podcast listing and directory in Google Play Music — and how the user would discover and select and consume a podcast episode from the lists of podcasts.

Since I had 5 podcast shows uploaded to this program, I took a look at several of the episodes from several of the shows — so that we can understand the interface and the results of listening to the episode with the type of quality provided. The last part is important, because of the re-encoding that google does for each episode.

Google Play Music Podcast listingAlthough this is a first-glimpse of this system, it is evident to me that the re-encoding may cause unexpected results that may be sensitive in some browsers for replay.

However, when we tested the playback using the link within the chrome browser, we found no problems at all. It played as it should have.

Perhaps there were other compatibility issues with browsers other than chrome?

The audio episode delivers a first-hand audio test of the quality (especially in speed) of the playback when the system plays the audio for the listener.

We hope that any startup problems will be fixed by google in the near future, as now podcasts will be available for all platforms, and our audience participation will grow.
