Possible Podcast

I’m considering producing a podcast.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you probably know I am all about helping people develop a biblical worldview. I have taught a few times and done a few Bible studies related to this. So, I was thinking about how to get that information out, and fell into the idea of a podcast.

Podcasting is popular, and there are ways to get them set up for free or very little money. And I was surprised to find there weren’t any easily found podcasts about developing a biblical worldview.

I sat down and lined out a series of episodes. Ive written 4 of them out, and begun gathering content for 3 or 4 others episodes. I may just do a short series, or if I’m inspired and it goes well I may do more. Definitely on a seasonal basis.

To make it easier, I would record several episodes at a time, and then release them every week or few days.

More info to come on this as I consider whether to do it or not.

Advertising in Australia

While Amazon Prime in the US and UK pay royalties about like Youtube (which is minimal), for some reason in Australia they pay $.25 per hour of streaming. That means one viewing of my film pays almost the same a someone renting it for $1.

But I live in the US, so how can I get people to watch Down Under? There is a thriving homeschool community in Australia. So, I gave advertising a shot.

I reset my geo location for Facebook ads to Australia. I targeted people who like homeschooling and speech. And I floated a $5 experimental brand awareness ad.

In 2 days I saw 2,279 impressions with a reach of 1,616. FB says 80 people had ad recall lift. 5 clicks.

Of course, this isn’t a true funnel, and it just the tip of any excursion into that market. I’ve asked Filmhub if I can get a direct link tot he film on Amazon, so I can use it in future ads.

And, since Filmhub reports monthly, I have to wait to see if any of those clicks actually watched the movie. But, if they did it could be an interesting venue.
