In October 2005, almost 10 years ago, I produced my first podcast. Well, at least it was the first one I actually released to the public. Over an 8 month period, I would produce 17 episodes of the SMB Strategy Cast, which would get a bulk of the listeners through iTunes. The podcast revolved around business plan writing, but also touched on podcasting as a business. There is still value in how I broke up the main sections of a business plan for the podcast and I believe that the shorter business plan that I recommended at the time is even more relevant today.
The podcasts are no longer available on iTunes, but at their peek, a couple years after the last episode, they were getting over 3,000 listeners a week… or at least downloads. There is a link to the first podcast at the end of the show notes, and all the episodes can be found here – SMB Strategy Podcast
