[1:36] Today, we’re adding complexity with a new spice – your audience.


[1:44] Knowing who you’ll be talking to before launching your podcast or recording that first episode will go a long way in helping you craft a show that serves your audience.


[2:31] There are lots of terms that have been used to describe who you’re targeting or who you want to talk to with the message of your podcast.


[2:58] No matter what you call it, identifying your particular audience will go a very long way in helping you reach more of the right people.


[3:21] Over the years, Yong’s ideal customer has changed tremendously, especially since coming into this online space just a few years ago.

Variety is the spice in your podcasting life Part 1

[0:02] Have you ever found a recipe that you loved, and then modified over time? Maybe you needed to halve or double the recipe. Perhaps you had to substitute ingredients because you didn’t have the ones required on hand. It could be that over time you added in your own personal touches. A dash more of this. A pitch less of that.


[0:29] The same is true for your podcast. The recipe you use when you start your podcast may change over time to suit the needs of your listeners as well as yours as hostess.


[0:48] We’re spicing things up today and in the upcoming three episodes of the podcast with a brand new miniseries. We’ll be diving into in many ingredients or ‘spices’ you’ll need, and you’ll get to make some choices so that you can build a strong foundation for your podcast.

[2:33] It’s been said that variety is the spice of life and the same can definitely be said about your podcasting life.

[4:02] What Yong’s reading now and how it inspired this episode on the miniseries


[5:20] As a podcaster, you are in the driver’s seat. You get to call the shots and make up your own recipes

[0:03] Live video.


[0:05] If you aren’t already part of our Super 7 live Streaming Video Challenge, what are you waiting for? We may have kicked off the challenge on Monday the seventh, but if you hop in today, you still have time to get all the help and strategies that you need to start using live video confidently and consistently. All you have to do is head to www.YongPratt.com/Super7.


[0:47] Start with what you have. It’s a simple enough statement yet one that doesn’t always provide the comfort we’re seeking, especially when it comes to launching your very own podcast.


[1:03] When it comes to doing things that push us outside our comfort zone, it’s all too easy to take a look at external circumstances and decide we don’t have the right tools or resources to get started.



[1:43] 3 examples of what starting with what you have may look like for you today



[3:11] Why Yong chose NOT to even look at any new mics at Podcast Movement



[3:50] Find out which mic Yong has been using since 2013



[4:18] The Super 7 challenge isn’t about perfection. It’s about progress. It’s about taking action, no matter how messy.


[4:50] So now what are you waiting for? Grab the tools and resources you have now and then save your seat for the challenge at www.YongPratt.com/Super7.



[5:14] How the Super 7 challenge can help lay the foundation for YOUR podcast



[5:38] Live video is here to stay. I would love to show you how you can take your live videos and transform them into all sorts of content including, drumroll please, your very own podcast. Come on over. Save your seat at www.YongPratt.com/Super7. I look forward to seeing you there. Cheers.
