What I Learned After Podcasting for One Year

Podcast Microphone

 

Last week I finished up my last podcast for the month of May.  I completed my first year podcasting and it was a big success.  Thanks for all your help and support.  I recorded 56 episodes this past year and by the end I was finally getting the hang of it. I thought it would be helpful to share with you some of the big takeaways I learned after podcasting for one year.

  1. The Magic of Doing.  The more you do, the better you get but you have to start first.
  2. Don’t quit.  Even when it looks grim you have to stick with it because positive results only happen when you stay at it.  Persistence is such an underrated value nowadays.
  3. People Will Surprise You.  In an amazing way, so many people are willing to help and share their story, their secrets and help other people.
  4. Sound quality and excellent editing are the key ingredients of a successful podcast.
  5. When doing interviews it’s best to listen to your guests and ask questions based on the conversation rather than reading prepared questions.
  6. There is no one way to be successful.  Many paths to success.
  7. What do top Real Estate Agents have in common?  What can we learn from them?  Top Agents develop early on a competitive advantage and set themselves apart from the competition based on their previous work experience and/or life experience.
  8. What kind of Agent are you?  Hustle Agent?  Sphere Agent?  Internet Agent?  Farming Agent?
  9. What is the best way for individual Realtors to increase their annual gross commissions?  Figure out a way to increase their average sales price.
  10. Buy vs. Rent on the web?  Do you own your presence on the web?  Or are you renting through Facebook?  LinkedIn?  Twitter?  Buying Leads from a 3rd party?    Advertising on other websites?
  11. Are you building your own email list of potential customers?  Do you own your community?
  12. Proper Training and Mentoring for New Agents is the biggest value a Managing Broker and Trainer can provide to new Agents.
  13. I created a Top 20 List Guaranteed for Success for new Realtors.  Click for Podcast.
  14. My Passion is what I do.  I am not searching for it.  Look within, not without.
  15. Podcasting is a great way to build your brand—a great low cost marketing tool.
  16. Give me feedback on my podcast here:  The Honest Real Estate Agent Podcast Survey.

I enjoy podcasting.  My first year has been a huge success.  I have connected with many amazing people who have been guests on my show.  I have received a lot of great feedback from the listeners and I have created many new relationships with listeners who have emailed me.

Thanks for all your support.  I appreciate it.  Make sure to spread the word to other people in the real estate industry about my podcast—post a rating and review on iTunes as well.  I feel it’s the best podcast out there for new and aspiring Realtors.  “Yeah, well, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.”  (Movie?)
