Questions discussed:

Q1 Stacie, how did you get into web marketing? What’s your background and story?

In 2007 I almost died due to my liver not removing toxins. My MD told me that I had to stay in bed until I recovered. I was bedridden for seven months. I had to find a way to keep my family from being homeless

My life was forever changed. I built a successful online business consulting firm from the ground up from my bed in less than a year.

Q2 I am an absolute podcasting newbie… Could you explain to me how to start a podcast… Tools + WP plugins I’d need?

It’s pretty simple to start. You don’t need all of the fancy bells and whistles to get started. You can invest in the “bells and whistles” when you know for sure if it’s something you want to continue.

First – You need a USB microphone – Never use the microphone that comes with your computer. They range from $30.00 – $250.00 USD Audio-Technica USB microphones are of great quality… More specifically the Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB

Second:

  • Pamela call recorder – to record the conversation between me and my guest (The Pamela call recorder is used only if you want to record Skype to Skype calls with your co-host or guest. )
  • Audacity – Free Audio Editor and Recorder

Libsyn is a podcast host (The fee for using Libsyn ranges from $7)…. The best WP Plug in is PowerPress. You would publicize your podcast by using Libsyn podcast host and PowerPress 3.0.

I would never recommend you uploading your mp3 directly to your blog

Q3 I’ve noticed you are using leadpages… They seem to have an interesting concept… How does it work?

Leadpages is an business owners dream. They provide awesome professional landing pages to build your email list. You can customize your landing page to your liking.

Also you can integrate your Leadpages with your email marketing serviced provider. You can also integrate your social media profiles – Google, Twitter, Facebook. You can even embed your own videos into your Leadpage

Leadpages cost a pretty penny but it’s worth the investment.

Leadpages is really user friendly and they are constantly testing out their templates. The top online marketers are using Leadpages and it’s because conversion rates are higher using their templates.

Q4 Do you have some kind of an editorial calendar for your podcast episodes? How do you get consistent and organized?

Oh yes. I can’t live without an editorial calendar. My life would be a wreck if I didn’t. I have guests on my podcast show, so it’s essential.

My team and I use Google Calendar to coordinate podcast production and the guests.

My assistant will send you a guest info packet and a link to vCita to schedule your best three dates to produce the episode
