  1. After moving hosts around a few times, settled in on a host I've used in the past, Transistor.fm. I've never had an issue with their service and that's not to say Captivate was any lesser, both Transistor and Captivate are on equal footing in my opinion. There are a few features one has over the other but, in my use case, I don't need them. Trying out Castopod was a good experience hampered only by a limit on how many episodes or file size is possible to be stored depending on the account type you pay for. It's true in that I could self-host it, as it is possible to do so and is FOSS but, I'm trying to minimize the amount of things and systems I need to keep up on, while also creating content and a 9-5 as well. Going back to a podcast hoster that allows multiple shows for a reasonable price was the smart choice for me. Nothing has changed on your end as I simply redirected the RSS feed to Transistor and your subscription via whichever podcast player of choice won't change. You'll still receive The Independent Creator Podcast every other week like normal, the only difference is the sharing site. Which is going to be at the following address https://indiecreator.transistor.fm/ It is a nicely designed place for people to see all the episodes, read the transcripts, find handy links to wherever they would like to listen as well as listen right within the site itself. All in all, I'm continuing to try to make my workflow as streamlined as I can, while also providing the best production value to you all.
  2. Been watching the evolution of the podcast industry over many years and, the takeaway I've been seeing is that fewer people are consuming the content. There have been layoffs from several networks and even the podcasts themselves ending their runs. I believe that perhaps Spotify had a hand in some way when they overpaid in bringing Joe Rogan into their ecosystem as an exclusive. This created a knock-on effect as other shows were trying to showcase themselves as similar, to garner the attention of buyers. There's also the fact that many of us are no longer making those long commutes to work. Working from home is a great thing for many people but the captured audience of people trapped in their cars, stuck in traffic listening to the latest episodes is essentially dead. Add in the fact advertisers are leaving the podcast space as they see that for their ROI, there isn't much to exploit as there once was. Many shows that had relied on advertisers in the past are moving towards a membership model. Calling on their audience to keep the episodes going. In my opinion, this is probably the best way to monetize. It frees you from constantly having to go through ad reads from sponsors that you probably didn't truly feel comfortable having to advertise on your show. Moving the model to the audience brings in a more engaged community. There's also the fact that there's a lower number of ads or even no ads within the episodes. What have you seen if you've been in the podcast ecosystem?

  4. In this episode of Independent Creator Podcast, I dive deep into chatbots - what they are, why streamers use them, and the different types available.

  5. In this episode of the Independent Creator Podcast, I dive into some alternative monetization options beyond just Twitch subscriptions. We'll explore platforms like StreamLoots, Ko-Fi, and FourthWall that offer streamers a bigger cut of earnings. I'll outline how each one works, including the percentage you get to keep compared to Twitch's 50% sub-cut. I also share tips for integrating these services into your streams through alerts and promotions. But is there such a thing as too much monetization? As your host, I give my perspective on how to promote alternatives without being annoying. Overall, my goal with this discussion is to provide genuinely helpful information for any content creator looking to expand their business. Be sure to check out future episodes where I explore additional topics to help support your success as an independent streamer or creator.

  13. As an independent creator, it's crucial to take control of your content rather than relying solely on platforms like YouTube and Twitter. In this episode, we discuss the importance of owning your creative work by building your own website, diversifying your content distribution, and monetizing directly with fans. Learn why you should centralize your videos, posts, music, and more on your own site to escape algorithms and potential censorship. Discover how to leverage social media to drive traffic while retaining control of your content. We talk about various options for building your creative hub from WordPress to Ghost and beyond. Don't cede power as a creator - own your distribution, audience, and destiny by taking charge of your content ownership.
  14. This week I explore Owncast, an open source self-hosting solution for live streaming. Owncast gives creators like me complete control by allowing us to set up and run our streaming server. I walk through the simple setup process - from signing up for a VPS provider like Hetzner to completing the one-click Owncast install in under 10 minutes. Then we dive into customizing every aspect of the platform from the admin panel. Options include setting your instance name and description, uploading a custom logo, tweaking video quality presets, and more. I also cover social features and how to interact with followers, as well as accessing advanced customization through CSS and scripts. By the end, I've transformed a default Owncast server into a fully customized live-streaming platform tailored to my needs and style. For any independent creators looking for alternatives to centralized services, Owncast provides a powerful open-source option worth checking out. Tune in to hear my full review!
  15. In this episode, we dive into the power of online communities for independent creators. We start by exploring the influence of forums as platforms for gathering and sharing information, highlighting how they shaped audiences and provided easily searchable resources. Next, we delve into Discord, a popular modern community platform, and its effects on information sharing and collaboration among creators and their audiences. While Discord offers great features, we also discuss its limitations, such as the inability to be searched from the outside web. We then introduce Guilded as an alternative platform to Discord, discussing its advantages for content creators and their communities. Guilded provides a solution for those looking to move away from the Discord silo, offering unique features and benefits. But we don't stop there! We also explore the Matrix protocol as another alternative to Discord and Guilded. We discuss its decentralized nature and how it provides greater control and privacy for content creators. We analyze the benefits of using the Matrix protocol for building communities and how it addresses the limitations of other platforms. In conclusion, we emphasize the importance of online communities for independent creators and encourage listeners to explore different platforms. Whether it's forums, Discord, Guilded, or the Matrix protocol, finding the right community platform can help creators thrive and connect with their audience on a deeper level.
