ZEBULON THOMAS:

Welcome back to another exciting episode. I'm your host, Zebulon Thomas, and this is Episode 139. Today, I’m answering questions that you, our amazing Podcast Community Mastermind Facebook Group, have sent in. So let’s jump in.

[SWOOSH SOUND EFFECT]

ZEBULON THOMAS:

Question 1 from a Facebook Group member. Asks, "What are efficient ways to record and edit video for my YouTube channel while still supporting my podcast?"

[SWOOSH SOUND EFFECT]

ZEBULON THOMAS:

Great question, Video content is king these days. To efficiently record and edit videos, consider using free tools like OBS Studio or Shotcut for recording and editing. They offer robust features without breaking the bank. Additionally, create a consistent workflow for your podcast and video content. This will streamline the editing process and maintain a cohesive brand image. Now, let's transition to the next question.

ZEBULON THOMAS:

Question 2 from a Facebook Group member asks, "What's a good way to bring guests onto my podcast? Do I work out a deal, pay them, or promote them?"

[SWOOSH SOUND EFFECT]

ZEBULON THOMAS:

Excellent question. Bringing guests onto your podcast can be a game-changer. The trick is to create a win-win situation. Networking is key. Reach out to potential guests with a compelling pitch highlighting the mutual benefits. Offer to cross-promote their work and consider creating affiliate deals if applicable. It's all about building relationships in the podcasting community. I highly recommend going back to episode 136 where I dive deeper into guest-related podcasts. And now, let's transition to our final question.

ZEBULON THOMAS:

Our last question from a Facebook Group member, who is looking to transition from an audio/photo podcast to a video podcast in 2024. They wonder about the easiest setup for remote recording and seek free but customizable options. Also, needs help with tools for creating properly sized reusable frames for micro content.

ZEBULON THOMAS:

Thanks for your question, For remote recording, consider platforms like Zoom or StreamYard. They are user-friendly and provide great video quality. If you are looking for a good camera, I have pulled off a video podcast using my iPhone set to 4k when I was in a crunch on the go, or I recommend a nice webcam like a Logitech C922x connected to a laptop. You will shoot in a nice wide shot and zoom in when needed in your editing software. That is why I suggest 4k to keep the quality from distorting when digitally zooming in. You will just have to sync up your audio from the microphones later. If you can budget for it, a two-camera setup recording independently is ideal. For free and customizable options, DaVinci Resolve is an excellent video editing tool. As for creating reusable frames, Canva is your go-to tool if. It's user-friendly and offers various templates for social media content. Now If you have Photoshop, you can get my “Podcast Audiogram Frames” by going to BuyMeACoffee.com/InTheRough and find that in the Featured section. Now, let's wrap it up with a reminder.
