What happened in Vegas is definitely not staying in Vegas! Brian is back with an all new episode of Profitcast, laying down the experiences he had at New Media Expo, sharing some stories (the highs AND the lows), and what in the world #overheardatnmx is referring to.
A major theme that came out of New Media Expo is this idea of going beyond just the money. But what does that exactly mean? As a means to give everything its due time, Brian has split his talking points into three categories and three podcasts.
THIS WEEK: The Good and the Bad of New Media Expo
NEXT WEEK: “The Resonance Factor”
THE WEEK AFTER: Networking and Community Building
Despite the challenges of competing with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) for space at the convention center, Brian was able to spend a lot of time listening, asking questions, and observing other podcasters. The challenge is never finding quality content or finding interesting people to talk to, it always seems to be logistics! Sometimes the logistics can bring everything down, other times it quickly is extinguished from the mind once resolved, but the point is to never let it impact the potential for knowledge acquisition. Absorb. Observe. Chat. Socialize. Network.
The lows of NMX were pretty low, and Brian goes into detail about the awful performance by the hosts of the Podcast Awards. While we can acknowledge that there are some podcast award themes that might warrant a bit coarser language or invite a little more colorful lifestyle, the awards themselves are meant to be a celebration of outstanding work by podcasters and those who supported them. We do not think this award ceremony was a reflection of that.
Tune in for more highs and lows! And be sure to come back next week when Brian talks about “The Resonance Factor”!
