This is a long game. That’s old news. Online. Podcasting. Social Media. It’s something I’ve been playing, participating in, and communicating with for over 10 years.
For the majority of that time, we’ve been fortunate enough to be creating content, sharing stories, and talking with people in those spaces (pro wrestling, technology, music, etc). For many, we refer to them as “friends of the show”. And we follow those people, and celebrate them as we’ve watched them excel into large businesses, or find them on my television on Monday night.
It seems that the work we did, the discussions we had in the name of something we just loved to do have been resonating back at me and my colleagues. John Thorne of the wildly popular Absolute Intense Wrestling in Cleveland and the new “Card is Going to Change” Podcast was just back on one of our shows. He joined us in 2009. He reminded us that was his first ever Podcast appearance, and pronounced after this was going to be likely his last outside of his show appearance for a while.
Others have messaged me about an interview 5 years ago they relistened to and how much of what they discussed is absolutely happening in current projects, or how much fun another interviewee had in an early interview we did with him on the show.
What you do. Whatever it is. No matter how big it is. It has influence. Whether one of the 10 listeners latches on to your topic and how you talk about it, or a guest opens up to other opportunities thanks to an appearance on your production. Every time you hit that publish button on the Podcast site (or whatever that function is for you) you send ripples through the internet if you’re doing your community and promotions right. And you never know what can swing back to you years down the line.
