In September I was interviewed by Srini from BlogCastFM. It was a lot of fun to do and I learnt a lot from the experience. Well, this week sees the launch of their new project – BlogCastFM Premium.
What is BlogCastFM Premium?
For a while now Srini and Sid have been interviewing a range of bloggers and internet marketers on their podcast. They usually release one or two interviews a week which are freely available via their blog or iTunes.
With BlogCastFM Premium they’ve dramatically improved the quality and content.
Every week, they’ll add three interviews to the members area – that’s 12 interviews a month.
In addition to the interviews, you’ll also be able to download an action worksheet and a mindmap. The mindmap will give a summary of the main points of the interview and the action worksheet will give you some action steps to actually do something.
As well as the interview material they are also giving you access to their BlogCastFM Green Room – an online forum where you can interact with other like-minded people.
I’ve been having a look at the website and already they’ve got great content featuring Yaro Starak, Michael Martine from Remarkablogger, Adam Baker from ManVsDebt and Dave Navarro as well as a few others. I’ve been listening to the Yaro interview and using the mind map and I’ve generated a few good ideas for my blogs already.
You can see from the screenshot on the left some of the page featuring the Yaro interview.
You can see the summary of the topics they cover, and the links to download the interview and worksheet.
I’ve cropped the photo – you can’t see the additional links to the mindmap.
Also, below each download section they include a bunch of links to people, blogs or products mentioned in the interview.
What I Like About BlogCastFM Premium
I can see some great uses for the Premium material.
Firstly, I listen to their podcasts usually when I’m in the car driving to or from work. I learn a lot from hearing the different interviews, but I find that sometimes I forget things because I can’t take notes. Being able to download mindmaps and action sheets for each interview makes it a bit easier to get more value from the interviews and to make sure I don’t forget some of the important bits.
Also, there’s a lot of detail in the notes on each interview. I find this really useful for when I’m trying to find information or learn about something new. If you don’t have time to listed (or re-listen) to an interview, just look at the mind-map instead. If you’ve forgotten something, the was said, refer to the action worksheet or the mindmap to jolt your memory.
I’ve felt for a while that Srini and Sid were giving away a lot of valuable content through the free podcasts. BlogCastFM Premium takes it to a new level. Instead of just charging for the interviews they’re also including tools that will help you implement some of the concepts and strategies that you learn.
