      What are your thoughts between podcasts and YT channels? My biggest hesitation is that it’s not easily searchable so people can’t find you when they’re looking for what you do. I love that YT is searchable, recommends you to others, and is still social.

        Tara Wagner Coaching this is a great question. Like integrating my podcast and YouTube together is something I’m looking to pursue.

        You can record a video of yourself doing the podcast then repurpose the audio for podcast platforms.

      • Rebecca March 5, 2020 at 1:49 am #

        @Massive Online Profits the main thing to keep in mind with this is that if you do this, you have to avoid doing anything visual or else it’s a bad experience for listeners. There’s nothing worse than listening to an audio and knowing that the person you’re listening to is doing something you can’t see. There’s a real disconnect when that happens.

      • Tara Wagner Coaching March 5, 2020 at 8:08 pm #

        @Massive Online Profits The issue with this is that the content that does well in a podcast doesn’t do well on YT and vice versa.

      I started my podcast and it’s GREAT!!!

      A podcast is the best way I’ve found to directly connect with people.

      Thanks so much Pat , I’ve started a podcast 3 years ago , by following some of your ideas , just need a little advice to take it to the next level , I’m not a businessman just a guy with a opinion , my podcast is really unusual (variety based ) show , would like to know the best way to make income ( passive or otherwise )

      I have only uploaded 5 podcast episodes so far. I cringe when I listen to them. But as you said I have to be bad if I am going to get good. I have started to see an upward trend in my tiny audience. Thank you for all of the information that you share that helps all of us.

        Somehow my comments keep disappearing.
        I was the same way, but then gave myself a target of 100 episodes before I stop. And I have reached my target, but now want to continue doing it, but this time with planning and strategy.
        Would love to know about your podcast.

      • Mark Lawrence March 5, 2020 at 7:12 pm #

        Nosheen Khan thanks for the encouragement. It is about macro photography. Something that I have become really interested in. I sat down and planned out the first 6 months or so of episodes. Hopefully I start to feel more comfortable while recording soon. I think that once I get more comfortable with the process my show will improve a lot.

      • Nosheen Khan March 5, 2020 at 8:06 pm #

        @Mark Lawrence I love the topic! I will search for it and subscribe 🙂
        All the best!

    8. Nosheen Khan March 5, 2020 at 12:27 am #

      Pat, you are the reason I started podcasting totally randomly! Now I have over 100 episodes. I am starting a new one, now with planning and strategy. Thank you very much for the inspiration and impact!

      Ive been sitting on releasing my first episode for weeks now because I felt that it was to cringey for myself to listen, much less anyone else.

      THANK YOU FOR THIS VIDEO & FOR CARING. I plan on dropping my first episode this week now, you’ve been a huge inspiration.

    10. Regina Pontes March 5, 2020 at 12:52 am #

      Pat’s the main man! I wouldn’t have known where to begin if it weren’t for him. I bow down to you Pat and I can’t wait till you can finally free your calendar and share your story with the Will Within Podcast family. Until then, BE BLESSED!

    11. Mere Mortals March 5, 2020 at 1:04 am #

      Best thing that happened for me. Continually deepening a bond with a 15+ year high school friend.

    12. Shaun Smit March 5, 2020 at 1:39 am #

      Pat, I want to thank you, and a few other podcasters, for being such an encouragement to me to stay with it. I immigrated to the USA in 2018 and didn’t know anyone here, but I wanted to get my message out. That’s when I found your podcast and decided I want to do this too. I faced a few challenges that year with my youngest son being diagnosed with cancer and journeying with him to health and a huge disappointment during that time. But I stayed with it. I kept listening and watching and even when I felt I couldn’t do another episode, nearly in tears, I would stay with it. I just celebrated 6000 listens. Not a big audience but every day I just hop on to inspire people all over the world. What an amazing privilege. Thank you for your message. (Sorry for the long comment.)

      We started the seed group podcast to share with other people as as entertainment educational and informational and we’re finally stretching out a little bit more but thank you so much for what you doing

      Years ago my impression was: Probably I should start a podcast. In January 2020 I did. My experiences with only 3 episodes so far: Compared to YouTube my impression is, that I am gaining followers/listeners a lot faster than with YouTube (in my beginnings).

      THIS video I will use for my corresponding “mindset-upgrade” 🙂

      Thank you for sharing! 🙂

      Your motivation was why I started my show 4 months back. My SEO has sky rocketed which is a fantastic bonus which people don’t realise. Just past 125,000 downloads and am in the top 99 percentile. But more than that, people now know I truly care about my niche. I’ve helped thousands more than I could have managed without this. Thank you from me and my listeners

    16. Chris Gorges March 5, 2020 at 2:50 pm #

      I’ve been on the fence about starting a podcast for a while now, but I think I’m finally going to just go for it. Thanks for the inspiration, Pat!

      I didn’t even come to know that 19 minutes went by… and then when you appeared back on video I realized that. lol. great content Pat.
