Endorsements

Hi Friends,

There are a number of products and services I use that I'd like to recommend to the people who follow my page and podcast. Some of these are affiliate links, which means that I make money when you purchase through my page. It's important to know that I only affiliate with products and services that I use personally, and they are ones I find dependable and reliable all around. Some of the links are not affiliate links. I just like the products. Many, if not all of these services do offer free trials or free levels of engagement. I'd encourage you to give them a try and see for yourself if they will work for you.

To your continued success!

I offer a workshop on getting started in podcasting. Many people ask me for advice on buying equipment for their podcast. I've made a list on Amazon of the basic equipment you'll need besides your computer.

I recently heard about a new microphone from Samson that is taking the podcasting world by storm. The Samson Q2U microphone is a USB dynamic microphone that is being used by a whole lot of podcasters. I first heard about it on The Feed podcast when Elsie Escobar was talking about it. The price is right and it sounds good while blocking a large amount of background noise. The feature I like best is that when you hold the mic in your hand to talk it doesn't pick up any noise from your hand. Definitely take a look. The price is great, too!


I've also had several questions about the equipment I use for making simple videos for teaching, webinars, and marketing. Here are the tools I use and recommend:
