How To Build Know, Like & Trust – PTC 358

To grow your audience and monetize your podcast, you need to build relationships. People do business with those they know, like and trust. That is the definition of relationship. Today, I want to show you how stories help you build those relationships. BOOTCAMP Before we jump into it, I want to invite you to a powerful event that will help you build your podcast monetization strategy. So many times, we go to webinars hoping to learn something only to find out it is a big sales pitch. We might walk away with one or two ideas after an hour. But we are really only there for the sale. You have a chance to join me for a 6-hour Podcast Profits Bootcamp where I will put you through the entire process to build your podcast monetization strategy. During this event, we will build a few ways to monetize your show that are perfect for you. This isn't one size fits all. It is specific to your show. You will get a workbook that will help you stay on track as we develop your strategy. During the bootcamp, we walk through the workbook step-by-step. We will start with your foundation to ensure you are building on solid ground. Then, we will develop your purpose. I'll show you why most podcasts don't make money, so you can avoid those pitfalls. Many people think ads and sponsorships are the way to make money with your show. That is a myth. It is the worst way. Sponsorships require a very large audience and a lot of sales time. Ads also have a revenue ceiling. I'll show you a better way during the Podcast Profits Bootcamp. I won't just show you, we will build it together. We will discuss the various ways you can monetize your show, so you can pick the strategy that is right for you. Finally, you will have plenty of time to ask me questions to refine your strategy. This is so much more than a webinar or workshop. It is a bootcamp where we will actually get things done. Where most webinars last an hour, this is a 6-hour, all day event. REGISTER Registration for the Podcast Profits Bootcamp will be $197 for the 6-hour bootcamp, your workbook and your monetization strategy for your show. Right now, you can enroll for $97 if you act fast. This fast action deal is good until Tuesday, October 19th at Midnight. Enroll now at a great deal and secure your spot. After Tuesday, the price goes to $197 and I'll start promoting it heavily. You can enroll at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/bootcamp. If you are ready to build your podcast monetization strategy, the Podcast Profits Bootcamp is for you. You've spent enough time attending empty webinars and trying to find sponsors. Now is the time to build a real strategy. Let's sweeten the deal for you a little more. If you enroll in the Podcast Profits Bootcamp, I will give you my Powerful Podcast Interviews course as my gift. Powerful interviews are a great way to grow your audience and monetize your show. This course shows you how to leverage your interviews to engage your audience. In this course, we talk about why we interview, the essential elements of creating unique interviews, the powerful interview questions and how to ask those questions in a way that will engage both your guest and audience. You get it as my gift with your enrollment. Let's get you registered for the Podcast Profits Bootcamp. Jump in right now at www.PodcastTalentCoach.com/bootcamp. Save when you register by Tuesday. FRIENDSHIPS Now, let's talk about how you build trust and use it to grow your show and business. People do business with those they know, like and trust. That is the definition of relationship. This is where friendship begins. Think about your best friend. How much do you know about that person? Do you know where they grew up? How about where they went to school? Do you know what they like to eat or something about their unique interests? There are things they haven't told anyone but you. That's how friendships are formed. You probably weren't there when they were growing up in their gradeschool neighborhood. But, they told you all about it. Their embarrasing high school stories may not have included you. But, they told you all about it. The stories go on and on. Your best friend tells you everything. You weren't there to experience all of the events, but you heard about them. That is the power of story. Friends share with friends. Friendships are built by revealing things about yourself. The more you share stories with your listener, the more you build relationships. ELEMENTS OF STORY Powerful stories have 4 elements. The first is your Provocative Point. My radio coach would always ask, "What do you want the audience to laugh at, marvel at or better understand?" That is your Provocative Point. This is the goal of your story. Make your audience feel something. Next, you need an Intriguing introduction. This should include your Provocative Point. Tell people where we are going. Nobody wants to get on a bus when they don't know where it is headed. When you start with your Provocative Point, your listeners can enjoy the journey. They can enjoy the details. That is the third element … your Vivid details. When you include vivid details, your story become more believable. Your story stirs emotion. You transport your listener to your specific time and place. The details create images in the theater of the mind. Finally, end your story with a Powerful Conclusion. Put a period at the end of your story. This should be a quick restatement of your Intriguing Introduction, just like a great speech. STORY EXAMPLES Let's review an example of how story works in your podcast. Mike Van Pelt is one of my clients. He gave me permission to share these examples from his True Man Podcast. You can find his amazing show at www.TrueManPodcast.com. His podcast is designed for men who feel stuck in some aspect of their life. Do you feel you've lost control of your goals or the ability to move in a new direction? Do you feel like you are navigating life's journey on your own when you could really use a guide and a roadmap? That is what the True Man Podcast is all about. These stories come from Episode 16 The Comeback. This episode is all about writing your comeback story. When you tell stories, put your listener in the moment. Stir emotions and make them feel something. STORY ONE In the first story, Mike talks about his story. He talks about discovering what it means to be a parent. However, he doesn't put me in the moment. This story is not very specific. There are not many details. Give it a listen. (first story) There are a lot of generalities in this story. He didn't put me in the moment. Mike needs to tell me when he decided it was time to go back to school. Put me in that conversation. Mike tells me he was talking to his kids about the importance of school. He comes to the realization that he was being hipocritical. Put me in that moment. Where were you? What were you doing? Mike stirs some great emotions. He tells me about being embarrassed. When does the pivot happen? I want Mike to get to the point where he says, "Then one day I discovered ..." or "That's when … happened." Where is the pivot in the story where we see the transformation happen? Put me in that one place and time. STORY TWO The second story gets a little closer. Mike talks with his co-host Paul about the starting a men's group. Here is story two. (second story) This story gets a little closer. They meet Friday mornings. The meetings are in Paul's office. It is 7a. It is Mike and group of guys. In this story, I am starting to be present in the room. Use those vivid details. What does the office look like? Where is the pivot point in that story? The story is a little closer to a great story, but not quite where we need to be. STORY THREE The third story is much better. This is a story about a specific retreat. In this story, we are very specific with the details. As you listen to this story, notice how vivid the details become. As Mike tells the story, you are put right there in the moment. You can see the surroundings. You can feel the emotion of what he is going through. Take a listen to the specific details in this story. (third story) I love the specifics in this story. Mike uses all of the senses. And, check out the details. They go up to Virginia a couple years ago. It was very powerful to be around 300-400 guys and spend the weekend in the mountains. They got to enjoy a focus on God. It was Saturday morning. Michael Thompson walked in on Saturday morning. He was going to play 3 songs. The second song was by Josh Groban. These details are very specific. It is one specific point in time. The first story was very generic. It could have been anywhere at any time. In this third story, we are talking about one specific Saturday morning, up in the mountains, when he experiences one specific song. This is what I'm talking about when I talk about putting me in one moment in time. That's what brings the stories to life and makes them powerful. Details and senses make the story real and believable. It also builds that relationship with your audience by revealing things about yourself. PROVOCATIVE POINT At the end Mike says, "That song took me out. I was almost on my knees. Because I didn't know that God loved me that intimately. And I didn't know I could love him back that intimately." This statement is the provocative point. It is what Mike wants the listener to better understand. This is where the story should start. He could have started the story with, "There was one day when I finally realized that I could love God so intimately." With this intriguing introduction, we know where we are going. The intriguing introduction could be followed by the story of being at a retreat one Saturday morning. We were up in the mountains with 327 other men. This is like seeing the trailer for the movie. We know the premise of the story. Now, we get to enjoy the details. Use stories in your podcast, and you will begin building powerful friendships with your listeners. This is how you build know, like and trust to monetize your podcast. JOIN US If you are ready to build your podcast monetization strategy, come join us for the Podcast Profits Bootcamp.

After Season 3, I did a lot of reflection and took in a lot of feedback about how to approach Season 4 of the Meet Mediocrity podcast. The result is a ‘mini-season' entitled “Career Learnings”. I expect this season to be 8-10 episodes in length. In Episode 6 of Season 4 I share my thoughts about business writing. Admittedly, I am a rare combination of a college English major and a business person. That makes me incredibly focused on making my business writing clear and articulate - and I'm quite picky about those who are less clear. I'm even more of a stickler for people who use poor grammar or punctuation! In this episode I explore tips and tricks for writing effective emails, memos and presentation materials. I also share some tips and tricks left for us by Steve Jobs... that I still use today.

Hello to you listening in Goeteborg, Sweden!Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday with questions carefully chosen to help you collect stories in the oral tradition or spark your own writing. Either way, you'll say, "Thanks for the memories."Perhaps like me you've been surprised about when and how your personal knowing shows up.I remember a 6th grade grammar school homework assignment: write a story for English class. I did. Here's my story: “Once upon a time long ago and far away they all lived happily every after. The end.”Problem was my teacher didn't see it that way. “Miss Wyzga, you didn't understand the assignment.” And from out of my very deep knowing came this reply: “Yes. I did. You didn't understand my answer.”Needless to say I ended up where all the back-talking girls find themselves more often than not: in the principal's office. But something had shifted. I realized that they didn't know everything and, more importantly, I did know something -  about me!Story Prompt: When has your bold, daring, unexpected Self surprised you?  Write that story!Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something.   All that matters is you have a story.This is the place to thrive together. Come for the stories - stay for the magic.

This is a bonus episode of What Was That Like. If this were a regular episode, you'd be hearing someone telling a story of how they survived a mass shooting, or when they got attacked by a grizzly bear, or that time they won $100,000 on Wheel of Fortune. We have guests on with all kinds of crazy stories, and they tell exactly what happened, first hand. But this episode is different. A while back, I asked my listeners to send in their stories about a specific topic: childbirth. What happened, what went right, and in some cases, what went wrong. This is real life, and not every story has a happy ending. I really enjoyed hearing these stories, and to those who sent one in, thank you.  And if you have a story about something unusual that's happened to you, not necessarily related to childbirth, but anything unusual or interesting, hang around and at the end I'll tell you how we might be able to use that here on the podcast in a future episode. This episode is sponsored by A Life's Story podcast – life stories of incredible people. Listen to it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts. Here is Sylvia's story about her experience with Postpartum Psychosis: My story starts after the birth of our first child. I developed a rare condition called Postpartum Psychosis which distorted my mind. This illness affects one to two women out of every 1000 births. After a very long day and night I gave birth to a healthy very big baby. Soon (maybe 5 days later), the only thing on my mind was finding the Wizard of Oz. I convinced myself that I was Dorothy. My new-born son was Toto. Every day, my mission was to cast all the colourful characters that lived in Kansas and Oz. The cast changed daily, determined by my visitor's personality and the colours they were wearing.  My overdriven mind was constantly re-arranging characters and scenes which led to many sleepless nights. I'd finally cast most of my main players like the Scarecrow, the Brave Lion, the Tin Man. I was going to rest now. But I still had to go to Oz. I also needed to find the red sparkly slippers to get Toto and me home. Finally, I arrived home with my new-born son. While my husband and seven-day old baby slept, I tried to rest and switch my brain off but every sound from a microwave oven, cell phone, creaky floors, barking dogs were all cues that would lead me closer to the Wizard of Oz and my red slippers. My husband realised something wasn't quite right with me. The Community Nurse did a home visit to check on our new baby. The nurse confirmed that something wasn't right with me. I was too elevated.  It was suggested I should see my doctor to arrange a visit to a psychiatrist.  Soon after, I found myself sitting in this psychiatrist bleak, ugly stale office. To diagnose me, he quizzed on mathematics. The psychiatrist prescribed medication for 5 days to help my mind switch off and whatever I was experiencing would disappear.  These drugs REALLY knocked me out. I was now officially a mum zombie.  After 5 days, I truly thought I was cured!! To celebrate, my husband was going to drive me to see my friend, but in reality we were driving to the public hospital. I ran away when we arrived. My husband chased me down and dragged me into the emergency department which made the Triage Nurse get the security guards.  I remember my husband screaming at the Triage Nurse: “She's not a drug addict, she's just had a baby - someone help her!”  I tried to convince nurses and doctors, I was having a great time searching for the Wizard of Oz and I didn't need to be locked up. In reality, I needed to be heavily medicated again and it was then admitted to the psych ward of this hospital, without Toto.  I don't remember how many nights I stayed at this hospital, but I knew that I missed my son and husband. I just wanted to go home. I wanted to start our lives together. I convinced myself, I could make my way home, if I do things properly in the right order, like floss my teeth, exercise daily, make the bed, talk, and save people and eat well. This hospital didn't offer healthy choices and it had a semi outdoor exercise, caged area, you could barely see the outside world – it was so prison like. I was trapped and felt like I never going to go home.  My brilliant, big sister found a baby and mother hospital which was located about 1.5 hours away from where we lived. It housed 8 mums and their babies. It was the only one in our state. I was admitted and this is where I was first diagnosed Post Natal Psychosis. I'd convinced myself that it would be okay because I was closer to Oz and I could take Toto with me. I wanted to party when I first arrived at this new hospital. New mums were not as euphoric, and I couldn't relate to them at all. I met mothers who were struggling after childbirth. One was on suicide watch, one played a jingle over and over in her head, one had to have ECT and one who couldn't bring herself to hold her baby.  I befriended them all because I could to fix them all. I spoke my mind, became irreverent and spent money without a care. I bought them all a pizza, each! To fix them! Doctors experimented with various medications to dampen my elevated state. Some drugs did nothing, some drugs made me feel so sick and some were so strong that I couldn't sit up or speak. Doctors settled on a medication that heavily sedated me. I slept a lot while the nurses looked after my baby.  I found a wonderful Psychiatrist. She wore my colours and enjoyed listening to my plan to visit the Wizard of Oz. I decided she could be cast as Good Witch Glenda. She seemed to appreciate this. She was quirky. I spent a lot of time talking about losing my dad, not grieving properly, not saying a proper good-bye. She really understood me. I was in good hands. I was beginning to accept holistic therapy. I practised mindfulness, which I loathed then (I love now) as well as healthy eating, cognitive therapy, resting, art therapy, proper medication and being kind to each other and ourselves. This is was the way forward for me. My new mission now was to run for Government to change women's health. I wrote hundreds of letters to government and prepared many speeches for I when I going to be elected. I was going to win for sure! My son and I stayed on at the hospital for over four months. I had put my amazing husband, our families, and our friends through a type of hell that I was totally oblivious to. We were given a 50% chance of Postpartum Psychosis reoccurring with another pregnancy. We took the gamble and decided to try again for a baby. My beautiful baby was born six weeks early, after a long, horrific pregnancy. My baby was very tiny and had to learn how to thrive, breathe and eat at the same time and was placed in ICU. I felt helpless and useless, so I was going to predict all the winning lottery tickets, while the nurses helped my baby thrive.  I played lotto over and over; not because I wanted to be rich, but because I wanted all my friends and family to be debt free. Five days later, I was getting sick again. My husband knew. I was in denial as I thought I just needed sunshine and a healthy baby to take home. We fought about it a lot. I lost the fight. When my baby was well and thriving, our bags were packed as the private hospital and my psychiatrist were ready. My hospital bed was pre booked.  Credit cards were put away. I was back at the mum and baby hospital with my beautiful daughter. My wonderful family looked after my son. My job was to rest. I was angry a lot. How could I have gotten sick again when everything was in place? I wanted to be home with my beautiful husband and my pigeon pair children.  It took a long time to accept my diagnosis. I slowly recovered again. We survived again. Thanks to my wonderful supportive husband and amazing family including my friends that are just like family. My big sister was incredible, and my little sister who kept me going when I was “locked up”, by phoning every day, telling me how much she missed and loved me. My beautiful, healthy daughter and I were in hospital for over 3 months. It took almost 2 years, from the birth of my daughter, to become medication free and I've made a full recovery. I enjoy healthy eating, plenty of exercise and being kind to myself. At times I get emotional when I think about what we went through.  Sometimes we can laugh, about trying to save people with pizza, wanting to run for government, lotto winning tickets, outlandish and useless on-line shopping purchases, and how many red slippers I own. I have enormous appreciation for proper post-natal care and The Wizard of Oz. That's our story. Yours Truly,  Dorothy/Sylvia from Oz/Australia.
