Ways to Stay Connected with Others
Send them a video email – BombBomb
I LOVE this service. I’ve been using BombBomb to send video emails to people I meet at networking events and conferences. I also really like sending emails to contacts and friends that I’ve lost touch with. They love seeing my face in the emails instead of just text. BombBomb allows you to record a video (either on your desktop computer or the app on your phone) and send it as an email. Recording your message and showing your face in a video makes your message so much more powerful.
Send regular newsletters – Mailchimp
I use Mailchimp to send all of my email newsletters. They’re easy to use and free if you’re just starting off. Of course as your email list grows, you can upgrade to a paid package.
Schedule appointments/meetings better – Calendly
I’ve been using Calendly for almost 3 years now. It has cut down on the back-and-forth of setting up all of my podcasting interviews. It’s easy to use and it integrates with your calendars so all you have to do is create some rules (setting your availability boundaries) and send a link to your intended person. Then they can see your availability and pick a date/time of their choosing. Simple!
Starting a Podcast?
You’ll need a microphone
Here’s what I started off with and still use to this day. It’s a great mic at an affordable price. It’s the ATR-2100
Adjustable boom arm to mount on your desk
Media Host – Libsyn
You’ll need a media host to hold all of your media files since hosting them directly on your site is definitely not recommended. It will certainly slow your website down. Libsyn is a wonderful media host. They’re affordable (with plans started at $5/mo), helpful when you have questions, and make the entire process of uploading and posting an episode simple.
Editing platform – Audacity
This is a free platform for recording and editing your podcasts. It’s fairly easy to use. I learned how to edit my podcasts using Audacity and if I can pick it up, so can you!
