As we move out of the studio we’ve been in for the past 2 years, we thought we’d give a quick tour of our technical setup as well as all of the decorations and other stuff you don’t get to see in our usual videos. This space has served us well but the next studio will be bigger, better, and hopefully more professional.
It’s that time of the year again, the time just before our tax deadline where we open all the books (mostly because our accountant demands it). Join us for an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of the Bald Move as it stands in 2018.
In light of our recent visit to Podcast Movement as well as some stats measurement changes, we feel it’s time to revisit the topic of advertising in this week’s Empire Business. We cover everything from an update on our success / failures with advertising, the overall podcast advertising metrics, and even our opinions on the way podcast advertising is handled.
Jim and A.Ron talk about the panels, technology and connections made at Podcast Movement 2018.
This week’s Empire Business is an interview with Jason Cabassi of Walking Dead ‘Cast fame. He now owns and operates Podcastica, a podcasting network that exclusively covers television shows. We chat about how the network started, his management, coordination and monetization strategies, as well as the Bald Move network that never came to fruition.
This is the first episode of the 2018 season of Empire Business, where we take a look behind the scenes and at the bottom line here at Bald Move. In the weeks ahead, we’ll be talking about our financials, advertising, networking, our future plans, and much more. Today we’ll be looking at The Club, which is both the backbone and lifeblood to Bald Move. If your interested in a deep dive on growth, subscriber retention, and serialized Club content, this is the podcast / video for you!
Welcome to our latest effort to give Bald Move Club Members a transparent look into the day to day decisions and inner workings of the Bald Move empire. Today, we take a long awaited look into our 2017 financial situation. We discuss the impact the “Save Bald Move” campaign had (spoiler: it saved Bald Move), the immense amount of Game of Thrones traffic we got in July and the attending performance of the GoT club membership sale, the advertising bonanza we had, how we make projections, and how things are looking for 2018. For you nervous nellies out there, relax, the news is all good! Finally, we discuss plans for the future. And give thanks, because without you, we wouldn’t be here today. THANK YOU!
On this episode of Empire Business we introduce Sandra Barry, the woman who is holding down our Bald Move’s social media fort. Chances are, if you’ve followed our Twitter, Facebook or Instagram accounts, you’ve seen her work. She’s sitting in today to present her analysis of our last few months of social media interactions and discuss the social challenges and opportunities facing a small company like ours.
This time on Empire Business, we are interviewed by David Chen of /Filmcast fame. This is a good primer for anyone who’s new to the club or Bald Move and hasn’t heard our story already; how we got started, where our success comes from, what advice we have for people new to podcasting.
We’re starting a new feature designed to give you a more transparent look into the day to day decisions and inner workings of the Bald Move empire, exclusively for our club members. In honor of one of the all-time great series and the one that gave us our start, we’re calling it Empire Business. It isn’t meant to be a regular weekly feature, it’s more of a “whenever we have something interesting to talk about and remember to turn the mics on” kind of thing. This episode covers podcast advertising. How it works, what are the unique challenges that Bald Move faces when securing advertising, and our plans for the future. We hope you enjoy it.
