InnovaBuzz Newsletter 28 November 2018
Welcome to your weekly InnovaBuzz Newsletter — a roundup of what’s new in Website Development, Internet Marketing, Content Marketing, and Innovation.
In this episode, I’m really excited to welcome on the InnovaBuzz podcast as my guest, Dave Jackson, founder of the School of Podcasting, and host of the podcast with the same name. He is also the author of the book “More Podcast Money”, and an expert on all things podcasting. He has helped hundreds of podcasters launch, grow and monetize their podcasts.
I’ve been following Dave for several years now and am a regular listener of the School of Podcasting podcast, where I’ve learnt quite a lot and gotten many tips that we use in our podcast. I’m excited to share today’s interview with you.
In our discussion, Dave talked to me about:
- Starting out on the podcasting journey by getting clear on who your audience is, where they are and making friends with them;
- The importance of engaging with your audience and building community;
- and how you can use a podcast to gain access to your favourite sporting team

To start planning your content so that you can meet your publishing deadlines without getting overwhelmed, start with the simple, small task of selecting one content idea.
Learning how to write a series so that you can take a break also helps you evolve as a content creator, because you’ll practice shifting from merely publishing content to building anticipation for your next installment.
In this article, learn how to break one content idea into a fascinating four-part blog series. If you produce one piece of content a week, these installments will give you four weeks of content, but they could also publish four consecutive days in a row or every other day. See what works for you.

Podcasts are an extraordinary way to build a connection with your audience.
But unlike blog posts and YouTube videos, podcasts live in sort of a vacuum, and more effort is required to get them in front of their target audience. That’s why podcast marketing might require a different approach than blog or website promotion.
This makes a strategic podcast promotion plan even more valuable.
Read on and find out how you can get the most mileage out of your podcast episodes, and increase your podcast’s presence on social media and in highly relevant communities.

The average attention span of a goldfish is about 9 seconds. Humans in this day and age, on the other hand, hold attention spans of 8.25 seconds. Quite an astounding and disturbing fact.
Holding concentration in the digital world has grown increasingly difficult. If you’re having a hard time keeping your audience engaged in your site, you’re not alone. Users leave web pages in a span of 10 to 20 seconds. This calls for you to clearly communicate your value proposition within or under 10 seconds.
As a content marketer, how will you hold your audience’s attention long enough for you to convince them? Read on for some tips to optimize your content for the eight-second attention-span problem everybody’s having.

Every now and then we find ourselves engrossed in useless activities and missing out on the important things on our to-do lists. We keep telling ourselves that there will be enough time to do it LATER.
Procrastination is what keeps us from focusing on our priorities. It is the intended but counterproductive postponement of a planned task, despite knowing the benefits associated with its completion. While delaying tasks, we feel that a psychological force is keeping us from pursuing what we had planned to achieve. Nevertheless, it is very important to beat this force before it beats us!
In this article, we will be going through some tips and tricks to beat our irrational thinking and counter procrastination like a pro!
