50 and Feeling Fine: 10 Lessons Learned While Podcasting


It’s so hard to believe that we’ve managed to record and publish 50 WHOLE EPISODES of the Businessese Influencer Marketing Podcast. In that time we’ve become very familiar with our verbal tics, learned so much about the process of podcasting and interviewing, been lucky enough to talk to an array of amazing and inspirational guests, and received a ton of new book recommendations to add to our to-read pile.

It’s also been a fast moving year in the influencer space, with changes in privacy regulations, disclosure policies, SEO best practices and attitudes around follower counts vs authentic engagement.

In this episode, we’re celebrating 50 and feeling fine! Listen in as we discuss our ten favorite episodes and take a look back at the lessons we learned from each:

    1. 1% Infinity: Next Level Food Blogging with Bjork Ostrom
    2. Word of the Year: Reflecting on 2017, Ready for 2018
    3. Hiring and Growing Your Team with Shelli Warren
    4. The Financial Side of Your Online Business with Cathy Derus
    5. Invest in Your Self: Mindset Matters with Queirra Fenderson
    6. Monetizing with Affiliate Marketing with Angel Djambazov
    7. Selling or Acquiring a Business with Eric Nagel
    8. Monetization Tips for Influencers with Jenny Guy
    9. Creating Authentic Sponsored Content with Patrick Quinn
    10. Growing and Leveraging Facebook Groups with Brandi Riley

Hot tip: don’t miss the end, we have a special treat for you with a delightful blooper reel.

11: Let’s Talk About Podcasting

We interrupt your regular podcasting topic schedule…

We know, you were waiting with bated breath and barely-concealed glee for the last segment in our series on 4 Marketing Tools Every Influencer Needs, and we’re so very sad to disappoint you.

However, since our podcasts drop on Thursday mornings and this particular Thursday is Thanksgiving, we decided to interrupt our planned podcasting schedule and release a quick, fun episode first. (Good things come to those who wait, we promise! Get excited about case studies!)

Now that we’re 10 episodes in, we’re starting to get the hang of this podcasting thing! So for our special holiday Episode 11, our producer interviews us about how the podcast is going so far: our general insights on getting a podcast up and running, what’s been intimidating or hard to nail down, and where we hope to take the Business Influencer Marketing Podcast in the future.

We hope you find it equal parts interesting and informative (and perhaps an inspiration to take the plunge yourself).

As an added bonus— and because we’re so thankful for you for coming along for the ride— we’ve included a very special discount code in this week’s podcast. Listen carefully for your chance to save 40% on an unlimited number of forms, contracts or courses from the Businessese store!
