Frequently Asked Questions By Speakers Cont.

I'm sorry, but we're a Christian non-denominational podcast service, and our platform is dedicated to sharing stories that reflect a person's relationship with God through Jesus Christ. As such, we prioritize content that aligns with Christian beliefs and values.

If you're interested in learning more about our beliefs, we invite you to take some time to read about what we believe. Additionally, through our content, you'll find an invitation to accept Jesus as your personal savior. While we appreciate stories related to faith from various perspectives, our platform is specifically designed to promote the Christian faith. Thank you for your understanding.

Our process for creating ministry podcasts involves four phases:

Phase 1: Pre-Production Phase
In this phase, we begin by having a short 5-minute introductory phone call to get acquainted. Following this, we send you a few emails and provide you with a DataForm to complete. This form is crucial for preparing for the podcast interview. Once the DataForm is completed, we send you an email containing a special scheduling link that takes you to a calendar where you can schedule your interview. After scheduling, you'll receive an immediate email with instructions on how to connect for the interview. Our website features testimonials from our speakers, giving insight into the quality of our podcast creation system.

Phase 2: Production Phase
During this phase, you connect to our system either by computer using a special ID or by calling in using a landline. If these options aren't available, you can also use a cell phone, although the quality may be slightly lower.

Phase 3: Post-Production
This phase involves our work to polish up the interview through editing. We also build you a customized podcast page, complete with a podcast player and a description of your ministry.

Phase 4: Promotion Phase
In the final phase, you have the opportunity to announce your new podcast to the world. We provide you with an official link that directs visitors to your podcast webpage, which we've created to host your podcast.

If you have any questions about these phases or our podcast creation process, feel free to contact Dr. Oliver at 972-641-8242. We're here to assist you every step of the way in creating an excellent quality podcast for your ministry.

We're truly grateful and blessed to have the opportunity to build a podcast for your ministry. As a small request, we kindly ask that you include the official link we send you of your podcast page on your main website.

Most individuals find it beneficial to share this link on their Facebook page, various social media platforms, and include it in their newsletters. By doing so, you'll help to maximize the visibility of your podcast and reach a wider audience with your ministry's message.

Your cooperation in sharing the official link is greatly appreciated and will contribute to the success of your podcast and the impact of your ministry. Thank you for considering this request.

The Mini-Cast Directory is a feature on our website designed to provide visitors with a convenient way to preview short, 2-minute videos of a speaker's podcast. Each mini-cast video is accompanied by a description below and a direct link to the full podcast episode. This allows website visitors to quickly scan through several mini-casts before selecting a 30-minute podcast to enjoy.

For speakers interested in maximizing views and listens to their podcast, the Mini-Cast Directory offers a valuable opportunity. It eliminates the need for additional interviews or scripting, as speakers typically provide us with the necessary content to create these videos. Comparable custom 2-minute videos can be costly if sourced independently online, but we provide this service to our speakers at no extra charge.

Speakers can utilize these mini-cast videos across various platforms, including social media and their own websites, to promote their podcast with us. Additionally, inclusion in our directory helps speakers attract more traffic to their podcast.

To learn more about how your podcast can benefit from the Mini-Cast Directory, feel free to view a few real mini-cast videos on our website. Then, give Dr. Oliver a call at 972-641-8242 to express your interest and get further details. He'll be happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have.
