About This Training Kit

Podcasting For DJs is a step-by-step process designed to save time and money while you set up a powerful system for broadcasting music to the world. Discover the secrets of delivering a modern mixtape while building an interactive online artist showcase. Become more independent and make your beats available on a universal frequency that every computer, mobile device and internet connected car around the planet can tune into. Starting a podcast is the best outlet for you to share DJ mixes and promote events or your latest releases. It's an exciting new way to reach people and build an audience, especially if you live in a more isolated area or don't have a strong music scene.

Getting under the hood, adjusting knobs and playing with settings is almost an obsession for most DJs and music producers. But, when it comes to the way that they present the finished product online, so many have given up control and are still at the mercy of other websites’ design or policy changes. Using free platforms is a lot like mixing with the synch button instead of learning to beatmatch. It might get the job done in the most basic way, but that comes at the expense of power, versatility and creativity. Your fans and the people you work with deserve a more unique experience and they shouldn’t have to constantly keep up with whatever new audio upload site is popular at the time. Music promoters and sound creators of all kinds are jumping from cloud to cloud instead of becoming master of their own domain. If you’re ready to get a little more serious about your music projects then you need to stop sending people to other websites in order to hear them. Create your own headquarters and take control of your online activity for good.

 

This training kit is for music lovers who have realized that for less than the cost of a basic package on any of the popular cloud platforms and website builders, you can get SO much more by hosting your own site. My goal is to show you how to take the next step up from free file hosting services and isolated podcasting ecosystems, without having to learn a computer language. You’ll probably want a website for something eventually, and it’s not that hard to do it yourself. Maybe you just need somebody to demystify the process and get you past the first few hurdles by sharing their experience, showing you some tricks, and saving you a lot of time. This is one of the best investments you can make for your music, and that should be as obvious as a chef wanting to open their own restaurant, or a painter having their own art gallery instead of fighting for attention in somebody else’s. Self-hosting your website is also the most important step towards harnessing the full potential of music podcasting and being able to grow along with this new media in an affordable way.

 

By investing 5 to 10 dollars a month to host your site, and learning a combination of free services that anybody can get the hang of, you’ll be completely self-sufficient and able to adapt more easily in a constantly changing internet landscape. It works out to only about 25 cents a day to get a whole new set of powerful online tools and give yourself a huge advantage. You’ll be working with professional branded email addresses, and avoiding limits on downloads and storage space. Updating your site will be as simple as writing an email, saving you lots of money in web developer costs. You can even set it up to post on all of your social media accounts at once whenever you add new stuff. As you’ll discover, that’s also a pretty good analogy for what podcasting really is. Consolidate your efforts in one place and use your music to bring listeners to YOUR website instead of somebody else’s. Otherwise, they’re getting overloaded with distractions and recommendations for their next click, instead of finding out about your new release or next event.

 

If you’re stepping things up as a DJ, producer, band or musician, event promoter, record label, or anybody who wants to deliver and promote sound, this is for you. It’s more important than ever that you have your own website and a good understanding of how the internet really works. Podcasting For DJs lays out all of the blueprints with your musical needs in mind and tackles the challenge of hosting big mp3 files like DJ mixes in a way that’s affordable to artists. I’ve been fine tuning and experimenting with this system for over 15 years, but you’ll only need to spend a few hours with the training kit to get caught up and have everything running. All of my experience going back to the earliest days of podcasting has been boiled down and passed on to you in a presentation that’s really easy to digest. The skills you develop in these videos will serve you for years to come, save you time, money, and make you fully independent and dynamic.

 

When you register, it means that you’re ready to make a small investment towards improving your command of the internet, and already have DJ mixes or music creations that you want to share. Even if you’re using other services to host them right now, you can still incorporate a lot of those players into your own site. There’s nothing wrong with having a few samples of your work on some of these upload networks, but it’s a bad idea to rely on them completely. They are NOT the ideal podcasting solution OR a substitute for having your own website. Instead, use your existing presence on social platforms as many different roads that lead back to your home base. You can enjoy customizing and building on it for years to come, or just set it up in a very simple way and spend more time focusing on your music. Fans will love the fact that they can add your site to the home screen of their mobile devices and connect with you just like opening any other app. This internet survival kit covers the basics and fundamentals that are crucial for every artist promoting music online.

 

Let me guide you through a process that demonstrates the easy way to build and operate your own website. That will give you the power to create and update a podcast, so we can drive traffic and expand your reach, while promoting your talents and strengthening your brand. Now is the perfect time to figure this stuff out so that you can take advantage of the huge jump in new podcast listeners. People are tuning in all over the world looking for audio content on phones, tablets, TVs, watches, internet connected cars, and even new refrigerators. Other types of artists might get by using the web hosting equivalent of auto-pilot, but if you’re looking to turn your DJ mixes into a podcast, you’ll need to grab the controls and do a couple of basic maneuvers yourself. By walking you through the first few steps and giving you tools to experiment with, this training product will lay an essential foundation for your music projects. You’ll have a solid, professional base of operations for mixes, releases, events and whatever you come up with next.

     I’ve been able to use all of my different areas of experience in the making of this training product, but you don’t need any special computer skills to build websites anymore or get into podcasting.  With a bit of creativity and determination anybody can learn to do this, and I’m really excited to see what you come up with after I demystify the process and put more power in your hands.

     It was a real eye opener for me when the different pieces of this puzzle fell into place, and I know you’ll have that same eureka moment when you wrap your head around it. Step-by-step video demonstrations, a ready-made template for your podcast file, and carefully selected online resources will make this process really fun and straightforward. You can work through it at your own speed and focus on the areas that match your goals.

     Try out the free preview and take a look at the full outline. Watching the first few videos will answer a lot of questions and help to decide if this training kit is right for you.

                                                                                                                                   -Brad
