Jersey City, New Jersey (PRWEB) February 22, 2014
In his latest podcast, Jonathan Goodman, president of Halyard Consulting and professor of The School of Internet Marketing, spoke with illustrator and graphic designer Ed Siemienkowicz. Together they explored their unique experiences at Ringling College of Art and Design, Ed’s company 9mm Studio, and how to market a successful podcast.
Although they attended Ringling at the same time, Goodman and Siemienkowicz took very different paths to reach their destinations. Ed started at Ringling seeking to become an animator, but instead turned towards illustration. He began his career as a graphic designer working for organizations such as the Golf channel and later found his niche in comics.
"Our research has shown that the smaller shows of 10 minutes or 15 minutes are getting the most hits and are actually keeping users in their seats to watch them." – Ed Siemienkowicz
Goodman talked to Ed about his company and personal brand 9mm Studio which has been the outlet for many of Ed’s projects outside of his day job. These projects include the popular comic Chrome and Dust, as well as his strip Random Play. Siemienkowicz also has a very successful Star Wars themed podcast called Voice of the Republic that has run for over 6 years with a dedicated fan base. He is currently looking at relaunching his podcast with a wider focus.
Together Goodman and Siemienkowicz discuss strategies for marketing podcasts that will pull in new users and keep current listeners tuned in. Strategies ranged from segmenting longer shows into shorter intervals, consistent publication, and branding. These are all strategies for anyone using podcasts to increase exposure to their brands.
