OPENING & WELCOME: Introductions, Checking-In, Reflection on Module 6, Progress Update, and Statistics on Individual Shows Podcasts from Podcast.Co
CONDUCT 17 - PROJECTION: Remember that you are the eyes and ears of the listeners. Let them experience the show a if they are in the studio with you. If you must express dismay, anxiety, do so on behalf of the listeners. That is, project the show to the listeners. If you talk too much and not be observant, you will not be able to represent the emotions of the listeners. That is what facilitating is all about, i.e. listen, observe, notice, relay the experience to the listeners, and bring back the experience to the participants in the show. It is like role playing a movie.
CONDUCT 18 - RESPECT: Do not interrupt when one of the guests is still talking. If you find out that you have interrupted someone, apologize before occupying that unfairly gained space. Refer to our LEKGOTLA Conversation Methodology. Once you are known as a host who respect guests you will be sought after. Don’t forget that our radio has a global reach. Who knows, your talent might be identified by other reputable global broadcasters. This might be a launching pad of a career in internet broadcasting and podcasting.
CONDUCT 19 - PROMOTION: Think through how you are going to promote your show among your own networks. The radio system is automatically going to generate listenership statistics for your show. You will be able to observe the growth or decline in your listenership. We can tell how many people listened to your show from which countries in the world, and how long they stayed on your show. Think about how you are going to augment the efforts of COMETSA Office in promoting and marketing your show. Think of Digital Marketing, using your own social media platforms.
CONDUCT 20 - MAKE YOUR SHOW GO VIRAL: Each show will be converted into a Podcast at COMETSA Radio Podcast with you, the DJ/Broadcaster, as an Author of your episode. The podcast gets published at iTunes (Apple Podcasts), Google Podcasts, Spotify, Deezer, TuneIn, Stitcher, etc. Our platform, Podcast.Co, will produce daily download statistics of your podcast and report on which of our podcasts are leading on downloads. You will receive the link of your podcast and you can aggressively distribute it on your own social media platforms for it to go further viral. That is what digital marketing is all about. You are welcome to request statistics on your podcast at any point in time we will be able to give it to you.
