Consistently over the last 5 years, Consistently over the last 5 years, podcasts have been growing around the world.
As at few nights ago, December 18th, 2016 precisely, while checking Google Podcast Trends, Nigeria is one of the 3 countries in Africa where interest in podcasting is really on a dramatic growth.

What does these podcast trends mean to us as experts and business builders?


* Podcasts will not be ignored in the coming year.
* If you have ever considered podcasts as a medium to share your message with the world, this is about time you got started.
* In the crowded space of written content, those who give their audience a different way to consume their stuff will outshine those who don’t. This has been my story.
* You don’t have to wait till next year before you begin. You can go right now to The Audacity2Lead Podcast Academy to start learning how to create your first podcast and launch within the next 7 days. That’s even before this year ends.
* With the surge in online marketing, brands and organizations will be on the lookout for community influencers like you and I to be their ambassadors. Deola Kayode recently shared this on John Obidi‘s Smart Business Teleseminar, and of the 9 rising trends in the podcasting space for 2017, this is one of them. Native advertising will be done through podcasts, which means more money for podcasters.

So I sat down on a Facebook live and shared with my community Nigeria Podcast Network about the 9 Podcast Trends to Look Out for in 2017, and how each applies to us.
Inspired by Ramona Rice’s article on Podcast Websites about this same topic.

Interestingly, now he talks about getting a job, and helping organizations take their human resources to the next level. But he didn’t start out that way originally.

Some of the things I discussed with Segun Akiode on this episode:

* How he narrowed down to career from chemical engineering
* How Segun started as a paid employee, even how he got a job 8 weeks after his NYSC. (NYSC means National Youth Service Corps done here in Nigeria for graduates of university and polytechnic.)
* How he was forced to have his own business – corporate consulting.
* How he took that same business to mass market – employability talk
* How he got started with podcasting, and how has it helped with his positioning in the marketplace, and the opportunities that brings his way both online and offline.

If you know just 5 steps to live anxiety-free, would you take action on them? Okay, so you’ve been battling different fears, let me ask you: Who do you think you need to be in order to be good enough, to belong, Okay, so you’ve been battling different fears, let me ask you: Who do you think you need to be in order to be good enough, to belong, and to be loved?
If you could let go of who you thought you should be to embrace who you are, what will that give you?
If you didn’t need to be anyone else, who is it that you would want to be?
In this episode of Audacity2Lead, I’m joined by Andrew Pearce from Anxiety Free Living, and he walks us, in a very deep and detailed conversation, through how to make this year an anxiety-free one.
Imagine you coming to a place where you are engaged with life in your own way. Being able to be very comfortable in your own skin, being present and happy, and experiencing the kind of joy you really want. Wouldn’t you want that?
Exactly why you must listen to this episode. This is not another episode about strategy, you will discover the psychology and the physiology you truly need to live anxiety-free.
 
 
IN THIS EPISODE ABOUT HOW TO LIVE ANXIETY-FREE, YOU WILL LEARN:

* Give positive meaning to mistakes and failures. Most of the time, it is not the doing or taking action on something we are afraid and become anxious about, it is the perceived consequences, how we think we would be judged that we worry about. Nothing has meaning except the meaning we give it. Making a mistake is an opportunity to learn, you either win or you learn. 


Nothing has meaning except the meaning we give it.

* Call out your fears: Getting really clear on what you’re actually fearful of. You will learn particularly how to handle this fear by facing it along with your friends.
* Judgment: We are judging all the time even when we are not aware of it. It creates fear of not being good enough, not belonging, not being loved, or being rejected and picked on. This could create a lot of anxiety.
* Attachments: Buddha said, “Attachment is the root of all sufferings,” and that comes from ego because we are attached to people, possession, places, identities, images, outcomes, things, how we think life should go or how it should be. And why the ego is attached is because we have this fear of not being enough. When you listen to this episode, you’ll find out exactly how to overcome the fear of loss of what you’re attached to so that you can live an anxiety-free life. 


Attachment is the root of all sufferings – Buddha

* Embracing uncertainties and vulnerability: A lot of anxiety comes from uncertainties. You overcome uncertainty by taking action, and getting the job done. You embrace femininity by being present in life, and not worrying about what’s going on.
* You will also learn how to integrate all of these pillars in your life, and how to handle the perceived consequences.
* How introverts and extroverts alike can be shy and anxious, and of course how they can overcome it altogether.

Usually, you take some time to create really great content, and then you’re ready to publish it and share your thoughts with the world, and then you pause, “How I wish I knew how to make very good visuals to attach to this post…”
Well, think no more. Now you can create visual content for your online marketing or the contents your create. That’s exactly what I will be sharing with you on this podcast episode.
 
 
Imagine being able to create these Visual Content:

* Images for your Podcast episodes
* Blog posts
* Conference materials
* Powerpoint slides
* Webinar presentations
* Adverts,
* And, it could be as simple as just your regular social media updates.

 
Image Resource Tools:

* Pexels.com: you don’t have to give any attributions or credit to use their images.
* Unsplash.com (you subscribe and every 10 days you receive 10 new images in your inbox),
* Morguefile.com
* Compfight.com (you use keywords to search what concept you’re looking for)
* Pixabay.com (I just recently discovered this after I purchased a new app for my Android phone, and then I notice the app pulls images from a particular site, that site was Pixabay. And interestingly, Pixabay releases photos to unplsash, and so far, they have sent 8,839 images

Colour Resource Tools:

* Adobe Color CC – Allows you create colour schemes that fit your branding. What makes it easy is the colour pallete generator which simply allows you see the codes and hex numbers of your colour selection and compare them as well.
* Colorzilla.com – It is a colour picker. And it works with virtually the colour on your screen. Somehow I think it is more a gradient generator. Now what’s a gradient colour? Gradient is when you have a hue and a shade of same colour on an object. Yellow to a slight darker yellow inside the same area of colure is a gradient. Colorzilla has Chrome and Firefox extensions.

Icons:

* Elegant Fonts I have on my system that I use for icons. It contains 360 icons that are flat out usable any time. 
* Flaticon.com where you can get icons, avatars, cartoons. This is particularly useful when you’re trying to come up with an illustration of something. Some of what you’ll find include: shopping cart icons, social media logos,

Fonts:

* Dafont.com
* Compare font combinations

Putting them together:

* As a picture – Canva.com, PicMonkey.com, Google Drawings, RelayThat, Pixlr.


* As a Video: Adobe Spark Post has iPhone app as well.

You’re about to discover it anyway.   So, what’s the concept of an invisible audience?     Okay, say you see that you have a lot of views on your videos,  
So, what’s the concept of an invisible audience?
 
 
Okay, say you see that you have a lot of views on your videos, tons of downloads for your podcast, a lot of traffic to your site, large email list subscribers… But then, no comment, no emails, no sales, no money made…nothing. Everything is just as silent as hell on a gloomy day (that’s if its even as silent as grave, anyway)
 
The thing is this…
 
Your audience is broken into 2

* The visible
* The invisible

 
Most of the time, the invisible group are the highest.
 
In fact, it is said that only about 20% of your audience will be visible and active.
 

Only about 20% of your audience will be visible and active. Others are invsible
Click To Tweet

 
Majority, 80%, will be onlookers – completely invisible.A major reason why we seem to overlook them.
 
I’m not surprised when I enter a Facebook group of 2000 members and only about 100 of them are really engaging with the group
 
That’s even more reasons I don’t delete emails of subscribers when I deliberately ask for a feedback and no one is responding
 
Its all the factor why I don’t discard people on my BBM contacts – the over 1500 of them. Even with all of the noise going on…
 
I’m well aware of the existence of my invisible audience.
 
This is also different from what is called an imaginary audience, where you imagine and believe that multitudes of people are enthusiastically listening to or watching you. According to Wikipedia, this state is often exhibited in young adolescence, people of any age may harbor a fantasy of an imaginary audience.
 
In 2014, Buffer App wrote a post, Why Your Social Media Posts Are More Popular Than You Think: Inside the Invisible Audience… and that was how I got introduced to this idea of the invisible audience.
 
Imagine a few days back, I advertised something and one of the first few persons to jump at it was someone in the invisible audience.
 
I was like, “Oh, you still dey here?”
 
Her response was, “What you said just now really hit me, and I will like to step forward.”
 
When 213 people listen to your show, and maybe just 2 send you a message about what you did or said, how does that make you feel?
 
Being aware of my invisible audience has helped so far. I actually discover this way back like 2014 or so.
 
Then my podcast used to be about 200 to 300 downloads per week.
 
Then maybe 3 or 4 persons would send me a feedback.
 
I used to ask myself then, where are the others?
 
Now, I don’t do that anymore because I’m aware.
 
Somehow I even see waiting on comments and likes as vain metrics.
 
You may want to be more careful with what you do on social and what you say on your podcast after reading this
 
When I was at paid employment, one day I was in the cubicle, and an email came in.
 
I opened this little box and read, and zap! it became an inspiration because of the particular condition surrounding me then
 
I copied out a line (just one line) from that email and posted it on my Facebook timeline as usual a q...]]>

Snapshots from 9 Lessons I Learnt from 24 Months of Podcasting:


A good start is far better than perfect procrastination. #GetStarted

* Good start is far better than perfect procrastination.
* Podcasting gives you a practice platform, hones your knowledge, creates a track record, and expand your network just as it has done for me.
* Podcasting has helped me become a spokesperson for myself and my business. I used to think people will buy because you produce content. No! Wrong! You’ll find why they will get to buy.
* I share even a character flaw I have.
* Podcasting has taught me what I do go a long way. You’ll hear a story.
* People love to learn from people who talk like regular people. You’ll hear how my impostor syndrome gave way for me to be free to be me.
* Podcasting, because it involves speaking, it has built my confidence and increased my understanding of how to tailor your content to your audience needs.
* Everybody can talk. Only a thoughtful person can help someone learn well through proper, meaningful communication.

A business archetype is how the business owner operates. Diapers.com, setup as an ecommerce store, that only sells baby diapers. It will be normal to say it won’t sell, Diapers.com, setup as an ecommerce store, that only sells baby diapers. It will be normal to say it won’t sell, but the advantage the company had was linked to birthrate, which increase at a steady rate.
Over the first 2 years of a child’s life, he or she will need to use lots of diapers. Right?
That then means that once they get a new customer to buy, the customer stays with them for at least 2 years.
“Steady revenue.”

Gidicakes – I got to meet the co-founder last week. They’re basically into cake making. The office is in a building somewhere around Surulere.
Gidicakes makes cakes. Their uniqueness is in having different cake templates which can be customized to fit customer’s themes – wedding, birthday, anniversaries, etc.
Gidicakes uses instagram as the major avenue to reaching their customer. Once the customer likes the picture, and makes an order, they hand-deliver to them at home or a chosen location.
 

 
9 Business Archetypes: How to Choose a Business Model to Jumpstart Your Online Business
Below are some of the top 9 business archetypes found around, listen to know which one you fit in, and how to build something off that.

* The Eduprenuer — the Edupreneur researches specific topics, tactics, and strategies to help her customers solve specific problems. Rather than delivering them through freelancing or traditional books, the teacher uses digital products like ebooks, online courses, and membership sites. Examples of Edupreneurs include myself, Steph Obi.
* The Mediapreneur — the mediapreneur can take many forms, including podcaster, newsletter curator, or food blogger. What ties them all together is their source of income from affiliate marketing, advertising, donations and sponsorships. In other words, they make money from their content. Linda Ikeji, Bella Naija, Ofilli is a typical example. The audience is the product they’re selling.
* The Freelancer — the freelancer uses her skills to help others build their businesses. Common freelancing skills include web design, web development, social media marketing or management, photography, copywriting, and business consulting. Capeworx.com
* The Coach — the coach unlocks the potential of individuals. She uses the tools of listening, questioning, and guiding to help her clients reach their goals. This differs from the freelancer in that she exclusively works with individual clients. Examples of coaches include…
* The Merchant – buys and sells goods from other makers through storytelling and ecommerce. Konga. Jumia.
* The Retailer — the retailer is an entrepreneur who has been around the block and sees an opportunity to lead his industry into the digital age. He is a real estate agent, coffee shop owner, or insurance broker who sees the power of the web to grow his business. Lamudi.com.ng could be a good example here.
* The Nerd — The nerdy engineer uses her technical skills to build tools for others. She focuses on solving problems through technology. PayPal, Simplepay, Voguepay are examples of this.
* The Artist — the artist sells his paintings, photography, comics, apparel or sculptures directly to his customers. These “products” don’t systematically teach things, but, rather, represent creativity, beauty and/or emotional power. Examples of artists include O’Tobi Arts, Yvonne.
* The Maker — the maker is a craftswoman/man. She makes jewelry in her workshop. He makes furniture in his wood shop. She creates monogrammed linens in her spare bedroom. They use ecommerce platforms to sell their wares directly to customers. The maker differs from the artist in that he makes functional products rather than art.]]>

ON THIS EPISODE, YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO RUN YOUR CALLING PROFITABLY:

* About when I first started #Audacity2Lead, and for a couple of months I kept teaching, training and all that, and I was wondering, how I will ever be paid for any of these things I’m doing and the key lesson I learnt
* Understand what positioning is.
* Positioning is how you solve specific problem for your market, or your audience. In my case, the problem I solve for people really is not that of potential to productive performance like I used to say when I started, it was more of helping people who already have identified what they want to do with their lives, or the direction they want their businesses to head and push them to step out and lead with more influence. And to do that requires they get on stage, step on a platform.
* When you get your positioning right, you will be better able to magnetize the right kind of audience. Yes, you story will attract a lot to your tribe, but those who will open their wallets to you will be those who connect to your positioning.
* Once people are attracted to your positioning, having a product to offer is the next thing.
* How having a product is a way to build credibility fast.
* How I wrote my first book 47 common mistakes Nigerian bloggers make in 2014 and turned it into a product.
* How Blog with Excellence came to be.

I go on to provide what will be required if you’ll generate any income online and quick steps to take when you need to begin.
 

 

 
ON THIS EPISODE, YOU WILL LEARN:

* MINDSET:

All of these won’t work if you don’t take care of the mind game. Really when it comes to making money online, your mindset can be your biggest obstacle.

* SKILL SET:

You have something someone has need of, marketing is how the person gets it. What can you do? What skills or expertise do you have? What do you already know to do that can be transacted

* TOOL SET:

Here I don’t recommend you start something new. In one of the articles I wrote on Audacity2lead, I actually said: “With what you already have or know, find an existing system or model that’s working and jump in.”
 
3 QUICK SYSTEM IDEAS YOU CAN START WITH RIGHT NOW…

* Freelancing – Fiverr, Elance, Odesk, Guru, Tutor.com
* Monetizing your content – blog, podcast, youtube videos, shutterstock, sell digital content through itunes,
* Online shop or store – importation business, konga, jumia, dealdey, shopify…

 
TIP SHARED:
Take action! Stop consuming too much information product. Like a student of mine once told me, “she is now a professional student.”

What I am today is a reflection of deposits made from all of them and personal inputs from people. Last year, 2014, around this same time, What I am today is a reflection of deposits made from all of them and personal inputs from people.

Last year, 2014, around this same time, I met with Victor Bassey, and we talked which eventually led to me hiring him to help me redesign my business system.
Last week at excellence in leadership conference at Daystar, the same place we met a year ago, we got together, and one of the things he said was, “See what you have become in one year.”
Now this year is my third time of being at ELC, my first being 2012, then 2014, 2015.
Today on Audacity2Lead, I want to share with you 4 key things I learnt from this last conference, and recommend a conference to you.
 
 
ON THIS EPISODE, YOU WILL LEARN:
4 key things I learnt at the excellence in leadership conference as taught by each speaker:

* Ownership (Poju Oyemade)

Take ownership of what you have.

* The power of stories (Kunle Afolayan)

Everything he taught were embedded in the stories he shared. He didn’t say point one, point two. He simply told stories un-end.

* Media as a catalyst (Victor Oladokun)

He shared something amazing and as a podcaster you will hear how you you have better advantage.

* Leadership (Victor Adeyemi)

Excellence… a better way to do what you do. In his presentation, he made a statement that caught my attention, “if you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way.”

As he taught, he used an analogy of Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs.
Originally, they are 5 motivational needs: Biological and physiological; Safety and protection; Social; Esteem; and then, Self-actualization, which is where realizing personal potential is found.

Want to build influence and authority in your field? You need to answer these three questions. Read on to find out, and listen for details.
Today I want to take you behind the scenes of Audacity2Lead, and let you in on my secret formula to building influence and authority.
If you carefully follow and apply what I’m about to teach you on this episode, you will practically become the go-to resource on matters you handle from your platform.

As you know my goal here is to help you get focused, get started and be impactful. I believe if you have to succeed in today’s world, you’ve gotta have a magnetic message, a marketable product and a meaningful platform.
The reason why influence is important in this conversation today is because if you’re going to be building authority, influence serves a very important part of the equation. 
 

Authority is built through influence. Influence results in authority.

ON THIS EPISODE, YOU WILL LEARN:

* How Audacity2Lead was born
* How the word authority is from a root word that’s also having author, which means to author something, to found something, to master something, to be a leader at something. It is also the root of what it means to publish information, to be a dispenser of some sort.
* How Saying has to do with what I’m doing right now; Showing has to do with visuals, videos and image; Scribing has to do with writing, articles, poems, prose or text content.
* The word influence itself comes from Latin word influere |in-flu-ere| which translates to mean your power to cause change. Originally influere means for something to flow into another thing. So when you hear that leadership is influence, and if influence is your power to cause change, that means leadership really is your power to cause change. It means you’re influencing something in someone’s life.
* The concept of Repeated Exposure in building influence and authority.
* How I have been able to rise to the top in just over a year, and got on the radar of over 12,400 people

TIPS SHARE ON THIS EPISODE:
Want to build your influence and authority? You need to answer three questions:

* Understand what positioning is.
* Positioning is how you solve specific problem for your market, or your audience. In my case, the problem I solve for people really is not that of potential to productive performance like I used to say when I started, it was more of helping people who already have identified what they want to do with their lives, or the firection they want their businesses to head and push them to step out and lead with more influence. And to do that requires they get on stage, step on a platform.
* When you get your positioning right, you will be better able to magnetize the right kind of audience. Yes, you story will attract a lot to your tribe, but those who will open their wallets to you will be those who connect to your positioning.
* Once people are attracted to your positioning, having a product to offer is the next thing.
