Hello ,

If you are a consistent reader of our newsletter you’ve probably noticed that today’s email looks different than usual. We’ve been evaluating our software subscriptions and eliminating the monthly charges by replacing subscriptions with purchased apps that do the same functions. This email newsletter is brought to you from SendFox, an application created by AppSumo. 

We’ll be sharing our experiences with apps that we use at AGK Media Studio in the coming weeks on our show. 

Shelley will be traveling to visit her mom in Arizona starting Thursday night. She’ll be live with Toby on Wednesday and Jen on Thursday, but Toby will be alone on Saturday night. Don’t worry though, Shelley will be back for our live shows on Wednesday of next week.

Messages and Methods: 5 pm MDT Wednesday

Let's Talk Proposals! Why they're necessary, and available online resources

One of the best methods for increasing your revenue is to make more offers. Each offer made to prospective clients is better received and more likely to be accepted when it is sent as a clear and professional proposal. We found a great app to create beautiful digital proposals and it helped us gain a new client this week. 

This show is specifically for you, the consultant, coach, or entrepreneur who wants to quickly reach out to prospective clients with a simply splendid proposal to offer the exact solution they desire. Join us live at 5 pm MDT Wednesday, May 11.

It's basically a heads up that if you're going to spew hate, your comment will be deleted and you may be sent to time out or banned. To find this go to Studio - Settings - Community - Channel Guidelines.

Q&A: Why YouTube focuses on the creator economy to drive viewership

Creators have fueled YouTube’s growth in recent years because no one really makes the distinction between “Am I watching broadcast, online video, or streaming video?” Instead, viewers watch what they care about in whatever format, says Brian Albert, Google’s managing director. 


"Marketing is not a real thing in podcasting." A mind-bending conversation with Magnificent Noise's Eric Nuzum

"Audience building is a real thing." The Magnificent Noise co-founder tells Lauren Passell that when revenue is the goal, too many creators have it backward. ‘Grow the audience’ > ‘increase revenue’ > ‘invest to improve the show’ simply doesn’t work.

"The wheel works by creating something that's more sticky and attractive to a larger group of people," Nuzum explains. "And then you grow that audience, then you're able to advertise somewhere and then you can reinvest." Publishers can’t market their way to a podcast people want to share.

This interview is in Passell’s excellent newsletter Podcast Marketing Magic. In her work and at her company Tink Media, marketing means the ‘real thing.’ Nuzum gives podcasters golden advice for meaningful engagement on social media and beyond: "You are creating a feedback loop with an audience."
