Transcripts

Martin:

Welcome to Tea Party media.

Martin:

I am Martin Lindiscog and today I will talk

Martin:

about how your newsletter could be a gold mine and what's going on in today's media world.

Martin:

So today on January 18 Review will probably shut down close its doors due to decision by

Martin:

the new owner Twitter.

Martin:

So I have been now merging letters for issues

Martin:

25 of them on Review.

Martin:

I started how many years?

Martin:

Seven years ago or even when I started back in midday got in contact with Martin Yi from

Martin:

Holland and saw the start up there review and the new way of doing a newsletter.

Martin:

You could say it like building blocks easy to use, you could integrate and take like an

Martin:

image from your Instagram account for example a tweet, embedded tweet and so on.

Martin:

It was very neat and nice to use.

Martin:

Of course it's what I've been struggling with

Martin:

to do publishing episodes of my first podcast eagle net Cost on a regular basis.

Martin:

Same thing with the newsletter.

Martin:

Newsletter should be in a way and use items

Martin:

and when it's the thing how often you could be able to publish I will come back to what it

Martin:

will circle around and coming back to what I like were thinking on paper and note cards and

Martin:

index cards, especially ones that I use.

Martin:

Model 90 27 write things down and according to

Martin:

my perfect week, I have an interesting flow.

Martin:

Where that's?

Martin:

Ending the week with the newsletter on the Sunday, the day before.

Martin:

Saturday is one thing like podcasting.

Martin:

Friday is tweet twitter like follow Friday.

Martin:

Thursday is Fallback thursday you can do that on Facebook.

Martin:

Wednesday LinkedIn wrap up post middle of the week tuesday blog post.

Martin:

Monday open Fred Instagram so how you could do it.

Martin:

So I will talk more and more about this.

Martin:

Your hub began blog your blog, your newsletter

Martin:

and your podcast.

Martin:

So it will be interesting to see if they will

Martin:

keep revenue like a placeholder or if they really will shut it down.

Martin:

Now I've been migrated and moved my small amount of subscribers and it was easy to do

Martin:

that thanks to a tweet there.

Martin:

But I saw by an employee at Beehive and that's

Martin:

Beeh IV beehive like it sounds like a beehive with bees and a honey pot.

Martin:

So I managed to do that subscribers and then also the content for 25th newsletters I also

Martin:

got incorporated there and I'm thankful for that because otherwise they could be gone.

Martin:

And I have learned that lesson regarding podcast that I have hosting companies that

Martin:

I've had material on and then if you merge or move your podcast to another hosting provider

Martin:

I haven't fought it through or maybe you stop paying the hosting or something else comes

Martin:

around or maybe they close down.

Martin:

But I'm using a service that was a free

Martin:

hosting service called it was a start up in Stockholm, and now we are working with Search

Martin:

All Ears.

Martin:

It's called you could search keywords in

Martin:

podcast in YouTube.

Martin:

But made.

Martin:

By now.

Martin:

I don't remember the name, but it was a host

Martin:

free hosting company that shut down.

Martin:

And we'll probably see here during this year

Martin:

mergers of podcast players out where things are going around and coming around and it's

Martin:

interesting to follow here and again I'm using them now.

Martin:

All it do is call recorder and they have also hosting including as a bit of him and I have

Martin:

an idea of a podcast that I've talked about there in the future but this Tea Party Media

Martin:

Podcast will be about my services, talks with individuals in the industry regarding new

Martin:

podcast apps and Value for Value model and the Podcasting 20 Initiative and other things

Martin:

related to Podcasting.

Martin:

So I have conversation with Mitch of podverse

Martin:

FM in the works in the pipeline recorded and also streamed live that I will upload and

Martin:

publish in the near future but I wanted to get this thing about newsletter in up running and

Martin:

then I will do another one on podcasting so it will be BNP blog newsletter, podcasting.

Martin:

So what's the gold mine? If you have I have some examples with friends

Martin:

and business contacts.

Martin:

For example, Stefan of Detective Marketing and

Martin:

Dovid that is a structural so they have I think they have great newsletters and they

Martin:

have worked with it for a long time.

Martin:

So that could be your gold mine with contacts,

Martin:

with replies, with leads and what it could lead to.

Martin:

But for me, it has been this thing how to use newsletter and set it up and it could be easy

Martin:

way of doing it.

Martin:

And I was a bit afraid that after review

Martin:

shutting down will I be able to find a new one?

Martin:

And now pound this in beehive and I will talk more about that in future.

Martin:

We have interesting different plans and packages and premium features that you could

Martin:

use.

Martin:

And I have booked a meeting with one of our

Martin:

representatives regarding the merging and also develop a newsletter.

Martin:

So it would be interesting to talk to him.

Martin:

And I must say that I enjoy the onboarding and

Martin:

when I published my newsletter here issue number 26 the first year powered by Beehive.

Martin:

I got email with Confetti and GIF congratulations with congratulations and said

Martin:

don't you want to spread the good word on social media?

Martin:

So I did that also I did a tweet, I did a Facebook post and shared on LinkedIn also.

Martin:

So with that said I will now take a sip of T here and that could be a symbol of this as I

Martin:

said the note card and T is a black T.

Martin:

Blandwater took what I left off some black tea

Martin:

blends but good for breakfast and other times.

Martin:

Next episode will be about podcasting and then

Martin:

I will publish the one with my conversation with Mitch Downey of Podvers FM.

Martin:

So ending here.

Martin:

Do you read newsletters?

Martin:

How many do you subscribe to? Do you have plans to start your own

Martin:

newsletter? Thinking about that.

Martin:

The call to action is to download a new podcast app like Pod Verse or others like

Martin:

Fountain FM.

Martin:

So with that said, cheerio and talk to you

Martin:

soon again.
