A conference that was started by 4 podcasters and crowd-funded via Kickstarter took place from August 15-17, 2014, in Dallas, Texas. This was a conference specifically designed for podcasters as an audience, and sponsored by podcasters. The conference was called Podcast Movement.
We had talked about this venture in an earlier episode of this podcast series, and now we report to you about the results of this new conference series.
As you will hear in this audio episode, we analyze this conference as one that had a large community of Entrepreneurs as the majority of attendees — many veteran successful small business owners, as well as aspiring Entrepreneurs whose passion is podcasting, and who sought to learn more about monetizing their podcasts.
Because this was the first conference of this type since 2008, it did get off to a slow start, as far as aggressive networking and self-community-building were concerned. But the passion and excitement of the community finally came about. And, like a fire-storm, it enveloped the entire audience to deliver a worthwhile experience that provided the following value (which were the objectives of a co-founder, Gary Leland):
- It was a great time where the attendee had a lot of fun; and
- It was an event that provided a lot of education where the attendee learned a lot about podcasting.
Also, you will see that this conference is already scheduled for August of 2015 for the second annual Podcast Movement.
