At the big Ed Dale “Coming Home 3” event this weekend, we got a chance to record a very special live version of Internet Marketing This Week as well as talk over some changes and ideas we have for future versions of the show. A plan for season 2, if you will. More on the specifics of that later.
One of the big questions we asked … Does the show actually need a website anymore? The Facebook Fan Page for the site does pretty much everything we do at the site – and it always feels pretty silly duplicating our content efforts.
We could easily make www.internetmarketingthisweek.com forward to the Facebook page and lose very little – while gaining back some time in the process.
Obviously, if we were an entity that sold ads at the site, we wouldn’t be asking this question. Since the monetization of the Podcast comes from building an audience that knows, likes and trusts us, what point is there in having the site?
And, if needed, we could always put ads and the like into the copy of the content at Facebook – disclosing accordingly of course.
I thought I’d pass this question on to you and see what you have to say.
When does a Podcast no longer need her own Website?
