Milestones – whether or not small business, group or personalized are obtained and celebrated all the time. They’re also recognized in a wide range of distinct ways. Having said that, if you truly appear at quite a few of these celebrations, I considered, they’re frequently backward searching – i.e., going again to where by factors started off to where they are now.
Then, I experienced an epiphany. What if you commemorated by purposefully celebrating ahead? What if you applied that milestone as a way of encouraging a long run activity?
This was the circumstance with Toastmasters Podcast as it approached its 200th milestone. To commemorate or celebrate the occasion, as a substitute of on the lookout back again at the initial 200 episodes as would be envisioned, we, the hosts Greg Gazin and Ryan Levesque, decided to generate a contest, especially, a Pitch Us Your Podcast Strategy! contest.
The notion would be to develop far more buzz around podcasting and stimulate associates to give it a test. Customers could submit their most resourceful notion – a pitch and an audio sample and they did not have to have an existing podcast. The winner would be declared and the grand prize, aside from some truly interesting bragging legal rights would to be a visitor on Episode #200 where by they could introduce by themselves to the planet and pitch their thought us.
When the dust settled, we experienced a winner, Rashmi Ketha from Ledgewood NJ, USA with her notion referred to as, “The Encounter Passport.” Particular enhancement as a result of pastime sampling.
You can capture the 200th episode – demonstrated appropriate at ToastmastersPodcast.com, and Apple & Google Podcasts.
