So, the Take a Mulligan Podcast is all about learning from mistakes from business owners, entrepreneurs and growing from it really came way, way, way back in 2014. It did not have the same name or really business at all, but I had a little bit of a podcast start because I wanted to try to get into the game of content before I even did video at all. It went nowhere, I had no confidence doing it, hated doing it, and now it’s kind of resurrected six years later in 2020 in the form of the Take a Mulligan Podcast.
So, I started it really this year because as a content creator I’m all always searching for new and innovative and exciting content. Podcasting, especially video podcasting, over the past few years has just been crazy. There are so many podcasts, people love to tune into podcasts, watch them on YouTube, and I watch them on YouTube as well as listening to them audio form as well. But it is a huge, huge source of content for me as a creator. My Podcasts episodes for the most part is between a half an hour to an hour and a half. Pretty big gap, but depending on the guests I have on, it can be shorter or longer. That for me is one video that I post to my Take a Mulligan Podcast YouTube channel. The audio from that is the podcast obviously and the video is the video, but now I have a half and hour to an hour and a half long content piece that I can chop up into a bunch of small pieces.
I’ve been saying this forever. Having one piece of content does not mean that’s the only form of content you get. I can literally take, if its an hour and a half, I can get ten or more little nuggets of info I can pull out that are thirty seconds, a minute, minute and a half long, and post on my social media account. I can use that for my Take A Mulligan Podcast. I can pull that out for Hawk Visuals. I’m getting this endless stream of content, so the more Podcasts I film, the more content that I’m getting for my social media. The more stuff I can get out there, for people to latch onto and grab. My net is becoming a lot wider with my podcast. And for me its just super important to have this. And not only am I doing this to just generate more content, and get my awareness out there more, but I also want to talk to more professionals who are in my industry or kind of in the periphery of where my business is going so I can learn from their mistakes, get in front of the person, and inevitably, I’m kind of pitching my business to them.
So, if its someone who I’m trying to get after, invite them on the podcast, have a you know, conversation, casual conversation, and at the end of it hopefully we can kind of come up with some deal where you know, we can maybe do some business in the future. So, for me, it’s kind of getting people in front of me, literally in front of me. Warming them up to the podcast, getting the content, but possibly getting some business also. And just learning from other people who’ve made mistakes and who know more about this than I do.
It’s just such a great way of like I said, making your net a lot bigger in capturing more people to know who you are. It’s all about brand awareness, and what you do here in 2020. There are so many people doing this stuff, so to set yourself apart, do a podcast, do a video podcast if you possibly can. I know it might seem daunting for a lot of you out there. I’ll do a video eventually as to how I started it, and the details of it, but it really does not take that much effort to start a pretty minimal podcast. You don’t have to do a video one just yet even though I think that’s kind of a homerun. But having a podcast in 2020, is going to dramatically increase that net that you toss out there and grab your followers, so they know who you are, what you do, and what your all about. So that is why I started my podcast. Shameless plug, if you want to listen to my podcast or watch it. It is Take a Mulligan Podcast across all platforms you should listen to podcasts on. We’re on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and all that.
So, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact us. We’ll do our best to kind of explain the process more if you think you need it, but for now, thank you and I will catch you guys on the next one.
