Are you thinking about attending a live event in 2021?
Today on the show, I’m talking to Steve Stewart about LIVE and VIRTUAL events – and if podcast managers should be attending. Steve has a ton of experience going to in-person and virtual events, all while being in the podcasting industry. 95% of the people I’ve recently talked to said they are interested in attending a live event. If that’s you, Steve shares some great ideas and things to consider to help you get the biggest impact out of going to a live event.
Steve Stewart launched his own podcast in 2010 to help market the financial coaching business he was growing, but gave it all up in 2015 when a couple personal finance bloggers wanted help producing their own podcasts.
Today, Steve produces 20+ shows weekly, including (pronounced Ploo-tuss) Plutus Award Winning podcasts such as the Stacking Benjamins Show and Afford Anything.
He also created the Podcast Editors Club in 2017, which has more than 6,000 members, and co-created the Podcast Editor Academy – a membership site with tons of resources for other podcast editors.
