For those of you who may not know, Podcast Movement conferences are the premier events for podcasters and industry professionals. Podcast Movement: Evolutions focused on some of the main pain points that podcasters are facing today: discoverability, growth, and monetization.
Filled with experts from every aspect of the industry, the conference offered attendees access to an endless supply of content and knowledge, covering all facets of creating and marketing a podcast.
Many themes seemed to resurface throughout the conference. Talk of short audio was all around, making it clear that short-form is quickly becoming the way to get to people’s hearts and minds.
As such, the Audioburst booth was hardly ever without a crowd.
The Audioburst team demoed our Creators platform a hundred times a day, and the response was breath-taking: Users were excited about the robust capabilities rolled up into one single application, as well as amazed by the platform’s sleek user interface and ease of use.
Every podcaster who visited our booth discussed the challenges of podcast marketing and the difficulty in spreading the word. The relief on their faces when they saw how Creators could help simplify the process was pure delight.
The best part of the entire experience, by far, was having the chance to hear the podcasters’ ideas and feedback first hand. The next few months of the Creators roadmap is now full of new capabilities, all responding to the unique challenges we heard from PM attendees – we can’t wait to dive in!
Now that the dust has settled and we’re able to take a beat to reflect on the Podcast Movement experience, we can’t help but feel excited about the future of Audioburst Creators.
Creating audio “bursts,” video as a means of opening additional distribution channels, a streamlined sharing process, and our easy to use editor all proved to be extremely valuable for the podcasters in attendance. The features were especially appreciated by those who found themselves short on time but are still in need of a way to boost their podcast’s signal effectively.
When you add in Audioburst’s unique distribution channels and our user-friendly mobile app as means of further exposure and discoverability, we feel like we’re offering something to the community that is really special.
Now it’s time to get back to work, implementing all of the amazing features inspired by Podcast Movement. But before we sign off, we just wanted to raise our glasses to all of the wonderful members of the podcasting community we got to connect with.
Until next time!
