Make Money Blogging - 10 Steps To Repurpose Your Existing Posts Into Podcasts





Profits From Podcasts


Multiply The Effectiveness And Profits
From Old Posts By Using The Distribution
Channels Available To Quality Podcasts


One of the main overall objectives is to diversify your income base and increase your authority status.

More profit channels should mean more financial stability.

Instead of relying solely on your blog with some social media marketing thrown in the mix, you should widen your distribution networks through podcasts and videos.

Today's post is a simple and direct strategy to take your old posts and convert them to podcasts in 10 steps.

The basic steps are meant for WordPress blogs, so you may have to modify them for other blogging platforms.

The basic strategy is to take one category of your posts and create a series of separate podcasts focused on that narrow topic.

  1. On your WordPress dashboard click "All Posts".
  2. From the top menu click "View all categories" and select the category you want to focus on for podcasts. Then, click the "Filter" link.
  3. Enter your primary keyword in the "Search Posts" box at the top right. The number of posts found will appear right below the search box.
  4. Review the content of each post with the "View" function. You want to make a list of the urls of each post that is suitable for repurposing to a podcast. Make the list hyperlinked.

    You may want to combine two or more posts into one podcast.
  5. Download the free software Audacity in order to record your podcast.
  6. Review my previous post Make Money Online – Start A Regular Schedule Of Podcasting
  7. Have a custom logo designed for your podcast/blog at Fiverr
  8. Review video 3, Exporting and Tagging Your MP3 File. Very important to get those procedures correct.
  9. Sign-up with Blog Talk Radio
    Once you log in you will see "Show Marketing Tips" such as Using social media to market your show (very good info).

    Blog Talk Radio is a very good place to practice your podcasting skills and everything you have learned from Pat Flynn's podcasting tutorial.

    You can only upload 3 audio files with the free version, but you should perfect your descriptions, tags, and use of the Blubrry PowerPress Plugin.
  10. Review your hyperlinked list of posts to establish the best logical and productive sequence for your podcasts.
  11. GET STARTED NOW!

The Power Of Podcasts


You Must Expand Your Reach
Beyond Your Normal Blogging
Audience And Include The Large
Segment That Tunes Into Podcasts


In order to make money online it is best to reach as wide an audience as possible.

While it is routine to blog, tweet, and use other social media, podcasting remains a largely neglected area which can be extremely profitable.

I plead guilty to neglect in this area. I've intended to do some podcasts, but . . . .
(I've run out of excuses).

Anyway, I viewed and evaluated a 6-part video tutorial on podcasting by Internet marketing guru, Pat Flynn.

The link to the free tutorial is below, but first take note of some insights I provide on each individual video tutorial:

  • Video 1: Podcasting Equipment and Software
    Do not be discouraged by the equipment requirements listed. Free resources like Audacity can be a completely cost-free alternative.

    In addition, many newer laptops have sufficient installed microphones so no external microphone is needed for adequate podcasts.
  • Video 2: My Top 10 Recording Tips
    Very solid tips. Simple but valuable. Note especially the call to action tip.
  • Video 3: Exporting and Tagging Your MP3 File
    Technical info. Essential info but easy to understand.

    I did download the Levelator but it is not always necessary to use it.
  • Video 4: Web and Media Hosting
    I gained valuable info on web hosting of podcasts, but I do not agree at all with the dismissal of free resources like Blog Talk Radio

    If you save all your Mp3 files of your podcasts on your hard-drive, problems with free resources disappearing are minimal.

    Also, I recommended GoGVO for web hosting of your blog. (my affiliate link).
  • Video 5: Setting Up Your Feed and Publishing Your 1st Episode
    I did download the Blubrry PowerPress Podcasting plugin 5.0.4.

    The explanation of configuring this complex plugin is strikingly clear and easy to follow.
  • Video 6: Submitting Your Feed to iTunes and Other Directories
    Later this week I will publish a list of podcast directories for future reference.


    The fact that these directories will update with your latest podcasts through your feed is an extremely powerful feature to help you make money blogging.

Depth Of Knowledge And Authority
Status Should Go Hand In Hand If Your
Internet Marketing Skills Are Acute



Depth Of Knowledge And Authority Status Should Go Hand In Hand If Your Internet Marketing Skills Are Acute





Magnify Your
Authority Status


Attending Conferences That Are
Focused On The Central Themes
Of Your Blog Or Web Site Is An
Excellent Method To Increase Your
Knowledge Base & Authority Status


I have not posted on a regular basis this past month due to my absorption with the presidential race in the United States.

The weekend after the election I indulged in a poker marathon at the Venetian casino, here in Las Vegas.

I started play Saturday night at about 10:00 P.M. and finished playing at about 4:00 P.M. Monday afternoon.

I was stuck big time for most of the session, but came back to score a modest win.

Anyway, back to the subject at hand. This is a short post about quality blog content, an endless source for such content, and growing your stature as an authority figure in your area of focus.

A prime source of quality, up-to-the-minute information are conferences centered around specific thematic subjects.

Of course, there are usually cost considerations involved when choosing to attend most conferences.

However, if you can gain recognition as a member of the blogging social media, attendance is possible at zero cost.

If you write reviews or feature new or valuable products or services in your area of focus, you are likely to be granted press status, as a blogger.

This is one strong reason why it is important to maintain a regular posting schedule for your blog, whatever its focus.

Here's a short list of content benefits available at conferences:

  1. Interviews
  2. Live streaming
  3. Podcasts
  4. Pictures
  5. Press releases


Build Your Marketing Arsenal


Below is a link to two valuable free resources.

First, Lanyrd keeps track of past and upcoming conferences on an infinite variety of subjects.

You can join free, sign-up to track or attend conferences of interest. There is even a method of communicating with others who are tracking or intend to attend the same conference as you. Highly recommended!

The Social Conference Directory

Livestream is a free resource that you can use to stream live events (interviews, etc.) at the conferences you attend.

However, don't limit your use of this valuable resource.

You can use it for interviews of local businessmen or persons in the news:

Stream YOUR Live Event

Finally, turn your interviews into permanent podcasts and use Twitter and other social media resources to link to these podcasts and build your authority status.

You should make repeated tweets and such over a course of months linking to the best quality podcasts.

Also, be sure to refer to my previous post:

Interviews As A source Of Backlinks



Link Popularity Secret - Interviews As A source Of Backlinks




Podcast Directories Are
A Neglected Source Of
Long-Term Backlinks


Back on
August 5, 2010 I did a post recommending attending trade shows in order to mine a rich vein of valuable info in areas related to your blog's topics.

Content Is King With Blogs And You Will Be Emperor Of The Blog Universe If You Take Advantage Of This Secret

One technique that is a must at these trade shows is to record audio interviews that will serve as podcasts.

These podcast interviews can in turn be uploaded to podcast directories, and the listing guidelines allow you to have a backlink to your site.

Below is a link to a list of podcast directories:

Podcast Directory List

If no relevant trade shows are relevant, then contact an authority in your blog's area of concern and record an interview that will be suitable for podcast directories.

Establish yourself as an authority figure and
get those backlinks!
