Last night was the first episode of a new radio show I host on webmasterradio.fm called “Net Income”. (click here to download)
This was a REALLY new experience for me. I had been on “Seo RockStars” and “That’s A Wrap” as a guest but I had never been THE host of a show. I was super nervous right before the show. It was a live show and I was just going for it. The pressure kept building on me as we got closer to show-time. I thought about doing a DaveN and downing a few beers before the show but I am not much of a drinker so I thought that was a bad idea.
It was about 5 mins to show-time and I got a message from Eddie (aka mrintern) saying that my phone was not picking up… I was like WTF then I picked up my phone and MY WIFE WAS TALKING ON IT yaaaaaaaaa nice start…
So I asked her nicely to get off the phone and called eddie with about 1 min to go live then it hit me. WTF am I doing lol, for a second I was kind of scared and then I channeled Jack from LOST and how you count to five and then your cool (from season 1) and then I was good to go.
So the show started and I was sucking it hardcore.. I think I dropped a few umms and ahhhs. I am not comfortable just talking about myself and whatnot so I introduced the show and what it was about and what I wanted to do. I went into the first break and started to feel more comfortable.
As we came out of break I introduced Patrick gavin and asked him to tell everyone how he got started making money online leading up to where he is now. He gave a nice quick overview then we got to taking questions from the chat room members. There was a lot of people in the chat room. I have got some emails from people saying they can’t get into the chat because it was full. I am not sure if the web-chat is limited to 100 people at a time but it seemed to hover around that mark.
We took questions for a while then took another commercial break. It was about halfway through the show. After break we took phone calls. I really started to feel more comfortable with doing the radio thing. I think it was a ok show for my first show. I have some big ideas and really hope to do more interaction with users as webmaster radios capacity for that increases via chat and phone.
I am keeping a eye out for a co-host/topic for next week. Last week we covered making money from text link ads so this week I was thinking about subscription or donation as a base topic. For a host I think Lee Dodd might be a good choice. He owns several HUGE forums and knows how to make money from them.
Anyone have any other suggestions? Questions for the show? Also please feel free to drop critiques. I have a lot to learn and as I said before I never learned anything from a compliment.
Thanks again to webmasterradio.fm for this oppourtunity.
