Lesson 92 of 158

09-22-20 – Elsie


Elsie 0:08
Hello, hello.


Yeah, I see questions.

I see your questions.

My friends.

I am currently

homeless one second. You know what? I’m going to switch connection.

Hello, hello.

I see that I might have come back on. Yes, here we go. I think I am.


You see me? Let me see I’m not sure what went on there was like some kind of weird hiccup Okay, great. Awesome. I don’t know. I’m not sure what happened. That was very strange. I just I was just off so I got a double check. I mean I am connected I should be okay. I mean, you know, I got my new supposedly awesome internet now. The only thing is that my daughter is currently playing with her friend and online and I’m gonna see if I can send her a message.

Sorry to keep you guys here. This is like I’m sorry to be double trouble shooting as we speak here, but it seems like it maybe have to do with her playing but I don’t know.

Okay, I just sent her a message. Hopefully she gets it. But alas, still nothing here. I can hear you all the way to Sweden. You are not in sync. Great that I’m so bummed that my internet is no not working as I thought. Which is so dumb and not fun at all.

Unknown Speaker 2:51

Elsie 2:59
hopefully it will catch me up.

Let’s see.

Elsie 3:11
Okay, I’m much better now. All right, here we go. So I’m going to go ahead and answer some of the questions that we started before. So I stopped wasting time because it’s been 10 minutes, y’all. It’s been 10 minutes. Okay, so Landrieu asks, Is it okay to submit to Apple podcasts with just one episode? I know everyone says three to four. But I want our new brand. To have a kickstart more to come a trailer perhaps, but it’s 35 minutes. Thoughts?

Unknown Speaker 3:41

Elsie 3:43
Okay. I kind of fight a little bit when it comes to the launch in terms of traction. So there are two there’s a couple of things here that I feel are really important. And part of making sure that you are launching, I guess appropriately. For me, it’s really about as much exposure as you can get for what you are doing. Right meaning you need to get as much exposure as much eyes in your content that you have launched in as many people as you possibly can to subscribe to the show and to be interested in your show. And it comes from a variety of different ways. This is the way that the larger shows out there, right are doing this thing. And what they’re doing is they do this huge sort of outreach to PR companies. They do blanket emails to influencers. They buy subscription things, not subscriptions thing advertising campaigns on podcasts. They get as much coverage as they can from media that this podcast is launching and so they are actually focused on the outreach in marketing a show to everybody versus how many episodes are on your feet. Okay, I hope that that makes sense. So when it comes to how many episodes are on your feed? Yeah, I mean, if you have one person who really loves um, let me see not working on Chrome either. What’s going on? and refresh a couple times weird. Weird. I did a refresh and had to sign in again, as in the chat. I’m in Chrome. What weird I’m still getting it hasn’t started yet. and refresh a couple times is so bizarre. Jenny, if you I guess you can’t really hear me. Jenny, press play. Ah, okay. Bonnie is here. Good. Okay, so I did a shift refresh second time and finally got it to work. Okay. So it seems to me that there are some refreshing issues, there wasn’t a play button. Oh, interesting. It was just not getting started. Mm hmm. Shift refresh. Very interesting. I actually had to do some of that myself. So check your connection, or encoder is what I got. So give me a moment here to do this. I am going to scream at my daughter here really quickly because I need her to get off and I’m just going to take her off. Either. Can you please come here? Because she is refusing and she they are playing a game and I think it’s affecting what I’m doing here. And she refused to listen. Thank you. You can keep it. But I’m just gonna take your sister offline because she’s not listening to me. And I already asked her to do it. And I’m just gonna say goodbye. Okay. Okay. All right. Go ahead and take it. Alright, so Bonnie is here in the house. I’m so sorry. I deleted all my attempts closed out of all the apps I refresh three times I’m in now I had to press play and unmute the player. There you are. Okay, holy crap. This is not a fun experience for y’all. So sorry about that. But let me get back to what was going on. It’s been awful that putting it mildly ever since you stopped doing it on Facebook, Bonnie, we’re gonna have to, we’re gonna have to figure out what we do here. And we’re gonna truck through to make sure that everybody’s experience is all right. And if we have to cross posted to other places, we’re gonna maybe have to do that. But uh, last Oh, my gosh, here we go. Um, so obviously, there is some kind of issue happening when you all log in. And the more we can do some of these things, I think the better it’s going to be for all of us to figure it out. Maybe I’m sorry, me. See that I need to go. Well, I’m sorry. Confused? Well, you’re you’re done. Honey, you did not finish when I wanted you to? I don’t have the thing your sister does.

She’s, the other one is coming. I know, I know. You’re trying just saying Facebook course. I totally understand Bonnie. And I think it’s not necessarily about the fact that Facebook works. Because obviously it does work. It’s about the fact that we are an almost no control when it comes to Facebook and having you know, I don’t know, it is just a very big challenge to be able to break people out of some of the things that they’re using, and also being able to create an experience that we wanted to create. And I know it’s going to take a little bit of time for us to be able to do what we got to do. But at this at this point in time, this is what we’re going to have to we have to test it you can’t do it without testing it. And I completely understand that Facebook totally works. Yes. So I’m going to start over again answering a question from Leanne, and then I’m going to go ahead and continue talking about what is going on here. Oh my gosh, do I have pesto on my face? And nobody told me I made fresh pesto. Okay. Going back to Leanne. So she says Is it okay to submit to Apple podcasts with just one episode. I know everyone says three to four. But I want our brand new to have a kickstart. So what I was talking about before is the fact that the majority of the of the other sort of bigger type strategies out there all have to do with the fact that they are really promoting the show itself and getting people to subscribe. And there are different ways to do that you the point here, though, is that if you have the capacity to have the marketing side of things set up for you to be able to do what you do, right, that marketing side of things is the thing that really needs to be the most important thing. How much outreach are you going to do for your show? How many, you know, podcast? guesting positions? Are you going to have how many people? Are you going to reach out to telling them that you’re going to be launching this new show? How are you going to get the word out for your show? How many connections are you going to be making in maybe reaching out to app developers like from Castro or maybe overcast? Or maybe other places like castbox to possibly feature your show? Like there’s all of these other ways to get the word out about your show? Because if it’s about Should I launch with one should I launch with 10? It actually, I don’t think it really matters as much as it does that you get people to subscribe to the show. Right? And that comes from really good content. So there’s times when it benefits you if you have a really good promo. That is a shortish type episode, or intro episode of some kind that actually maybe is just evocative like a like, like a trailer, like a real trailer that is less than a minute or maybe a little, maybe a minute and a half or something like that. It can get people to subscribe so that when you really drop your really killer content, people are going to get it right away. What we want, again, is people to listen to the darn show to subscribe to the show. So when it comes to one to four, we launched She Podcasts with four episodes, I launched the feed with just an intro like an episode zero. Obviously LCS yoga class I never launched with I have people lunch with anything other than just I started. I always see it like as an ongoing process. So if you’re thinking that you just want to have the best experience that you possibly can like meaning you want to have a kickstart, then the kickstart comes from the marketing and the PR versus the content. Because you still have to promote that content. Meaning you still have to get people to listen to episode one and Episode One, we cover this, this and this and this and that. And that’s going to require its own marketing campaign to do that. Episode Two, Episode Three, you also are going to have to, you know, have your email newsletters describe what these episodes are like. So there’s like still a lot of the marketing that’s involved. And I find that marketing each episode becomes a little tedious versus marketing the show. And then what ends up happening is then all of a sudden, you have a next episode, you have Episode Four drop, and what happened to episodes one through three. So

unless you are spreading it out, meaning you launch with three episodes, and then you go to, I don’t know, a month out. And then you drop the next episode and you say on, you know, whatever what’s now on October 15. We will drop episode number four that I can kind of see at something that really works. But for me, the marketing is the most the most important part. I’m going to go to Karen Jackson, what’s the advantage to using lips ins WordPress plugin versus just embedding a player in each episode? There is no advantage, Karen. In fact, in my humble opinion, and this is just you and I behind this paywall at this moment, I don’t really like the Lipson player, I think it’s more problem than it’s worth stick to like I do copy, paste, copy, paste, and I’m fine with that. There is no issue. The End, that’s just the way it goes. I don’t really care. So in that respect, I would say stick to what you are doing right now if it’s copy pasting, I wouldn’t mess with a plugin. I cannot stand plugins. They are so much of a pain in the butt in there. So unstable. Okay. Here we go. Then it says All right, and then it’s been awful. Yes, I know. I know. I get it, tweet, test and tweak. still love you What Bonnie said. So Karen, I know that this has been a lot of challenge. I know. I know. And we are totally trying to do as much as we can here too, to be able to to get some kind of workflow where we make it work. And so let’s talk about that. Let’s talk about that. Let’s talk a little bit about the fact that it is challenging, I completely understand that it would be easier to just be able to x right and I get that and Do we have to make it over to the site? And this is where all of that stuff goes, goes down. And it’s already incorporated. You know, Facebook is already incorporated in so many different places, we might have to rethink doing the maybe the QA, I’m not sure about our, our recording? I’m not sure you know, because that let me think about that, because part of the reason that we’re moving away from there is because and I think I taught I’m not sure if I spoke about this with you, the amount of inboxes that are happening, it’s just too much. And in order for us to really cultivate something, we need to make sure that we already know where those boxes are. And Facebook becomes incredibly unwieldly with everything that you have. And it’s yet another inbox. And it’s another channel to have to manage. And particularly with the way that they handle things and the way that they are just changing things constantly. And you never know what’s happening. And you actually do remember, Bonnie specifically talking about the the What do you call that? The change to Creator Studio, I still don’t understand Creator Studio, I don’t even know why it’s there, it kind of takes me outside of a lot of different things that I’m doing. I haven’t really like streamed using Facebook in such a long time that I’m not quite sure how that is all working out. But obviously they’re streamlining it so that people can stream live inside of Facebook. And I understand the power of the reach. But we’re trying to figure out a way that we can do it behind a paywall. And even like, if we do stream it inside of Facebook, and we do get the engagement on Facebook, the challenge is being able to manage the chat, where we’ll be able to answer the questions when they’re showing up there and what’s happening there and all of that stuff because we would have to be in so many different places. So again, maybe we should do this, maybe I should do we should do a week, maybe we should do a week of trying to do Q and A’s and see when people are like having more problems when people can’t really understand what’s happening when people don’t you know, like all of those things. We need to really be aware of how to solve the problems, right? Like what happens like I don’t even know what I know you were talking about Jenny, when you said I did a shift refresh a second time and it finally got it to work. I’m not quite understanding what shift refresh means. But I’m assuming that that’s something fancy. Or maybe just just you were in the refresh and you press shifted and it kind of like turned around. I’m not quite sure. And Danielle, you said you refresh three times. And I am in now I had to press play and unmute the player. And then so yeah, all of those things and then copy paste the embed code. You mean? What does that mean? copy paste the embed code?

Yes, copy paste the embed code? Karen? Yes. That’s what I mean. That’s what I do. I copy paste the embed code. And to me, it feels like I can manage that. And I do all of my work outside of the website. So yes, going back to looking that back at that. And then Karen says, I’m totally on board with moving here. And they’re just and the challenges I’m willing to hang in there with you. So you know, we might change things out, we might go back to some of the stuff that we want to do, eventually, we might have to figure out a way to do it on Facebook. In fact, another test would be using Vimeo to post into Facebook and see what happens then, one of the advantages of using stream yard with a lot of these things is that it incorporates like a chat throughout the entire thing. So the process of the person who is broadcasting becomes very inclusive. I’m not sure that that’s what happens here. And that would be very interesting for me to be able to see what that look like and seeing what the end user is expecting. So Jenny says sometimes when you hit refresh, it doesn’t always go back to the original server to get the content. But when you hold the shift key and hit refresh, it goes back to the server to get the newest information. That is something I did not know Jenny water. So thank you for teaching me today because that is kind of cool. So I did understand there was something very weird going on with what I had going on here. I don’t understand. In terms of the internet, it feels like I should have been pretty solid and it wasn’t so I’m not sure what’s going on with that, and it has a very crazy stream. That doesn’t seem like it’s doing very good. Um, and I can see like the codec and the video codec and the AVC profile, and I don’t even know all of these other things of stuff that I have going on in here. And it seems like the entire time I have, I have had the thing that says, my stream is unstable. Lena says I have seen quite a few people using crowdcast. io lately. I haven’t tested it. So I don’t know if that tool is that a tool to test. And then Jenny says I learned it with our website design where the designer would tell me they updated something and I couldn’t see it, even after I hit refresh. So I heat so so they told me about the ship, refresh. Okay, that’s really good. So that’s a note for us to have. And Lynette, we use crowdcast io for Lipson and again, crackcast. io is a incredibly solid piece of software. I think one of the reasons that we and you can have private events, you can have private events, as far as I know, you can definitely do that, because we often test the webinars whenever we have a new guest coming on, and we do test them and whatnot, but I actually don’t know if you can keep them behind a paywall. Like I’m not sure if they show up on on all the things. I know Jessica has invested in Vimeo for the entire year. And I don’t know it, I think that the hard part is that sometimes when it comes to the workflow, it works really well meaning. Now when I finish, this is immediately going to be uploaded to Vimeo because that’s where Jessica has all of our videos for everything. They’re all on video. I mean, excuse me on Vimeo. So we don’t have to go through the process of downloading it from stream yard or downloading it from crowdcast or downloading it from YouTube and uploading it to Vimeo so that we have it there so that we can get that link and then share it out like everything is in like one place. And that’s one of the wonderful things about it. So anyway, so when are you getting the upgraded? So Karen, this is a funny thing. This is my upgraded internet connection, which is why I’m very surprised by what’s happening right now with the way that this is being handled by Vimeo. Because I’ve been, I mean, it’s been great. It’s been great with the majority

of the things I’m actually going to check my speed test right now. And I’m going to see what’s going on in terms of the speed test. I don’t know if there’s something going off, but it’s like, No, I have really great speeds right now I am downloading my speed right now at about 50 megabytes down. So we’re going to check the like 50 megabytes down is what my speed is right now. Let’s see what the speed test says when it goes up. I am at about 1516 megabytes up. And that is by far by far, much better than I had before. So I am wondering why streaming here, it seems like even on Vimeo, there is a problem. There is a problem. So that’s an interesting, that’s just another note, Note to self. This is what’s happening. We’ve tried to do all the things, we try to change all the stuff. Could it be a Vimeo problem, Karen, it might be a Vimeo problem. Unless there is some kind of setting where I have to in the back end in some way. Adjust for something and I’m not quite sure what that would be. Because it’s looking to me like this stream health. Um, excuse me stream metrics, I can see that they’re going up and down up and down. Like a nut like I wish that I could show you guys what that looks like. And I know every time like people show their screen when they’re doing this live stuff. It kind of shows something very different. But it really is interesting to see that I am going at like 16 frames per minute between 21 frames per minute. And I’m I’m on fiber and it’s supposed to be a stable connection here. I haven’t had a problem at all with almost anything that I have done and it just keeps telling me that I need to check my video codec which is Something I don’t even know what I would do with so anywho does anybody else? I’m noticing more people using it. Maybe their bandwidth is slowing down, Karen, possibly. Maybe there’s something to do with the back end of Vimeo. And that it would be a question that we can send to the team. Lina says, with other online tools I have, I have got the advice to not to start on the hour, because everyone else is also starting on the hour. advice to start a quarter past. That’s a very interesting bit of feedback, Miss Lina. But even then, though, wouldn’t it have fixed itself if I started right now? And then I’m doing my thing? And I’m, you know, communicating with y’all and it’s it would seem that everything should be working out correctly, but it is not. What a pain in my behind also, did you see the painting? Do you see the painting in the back? Who can see the painting in the back, it looks so nice. Over on my that side. outside my door, it is the painting that I got at She Podcasts Live last year, I should probably put it around somewhere so that it could see so that y’all can can see it closer, but it’s a really cute, it’s on that side. Anyway, just wanted to say anybody else have any other questions? For me, I’m happy to answer any more questions. But I have to say it is incredibly frustrating to see that those things are Oh my god, it is I wish that it was a better experience. I hope that we can fix it. Oh my gosh, look, I got all weird and squiggly, and you’re right, it probably has to do with something to do with the with Vimeo. So who knows, maybe we’re going to have to do a little fixing. Maybe we’re going to have to do a little polishing, maybe we’re going to have to have another conversation, maybe we’re going to have to have some folks that are

more pro when it comes to using cameras and understanding codecs and understanding being able to stream and is it my computer? Is it the fact that it can’t handle the speed that it needs to transfer the data? Like that could be a thing too, particularly with some of the Vimeo stuff. Thoughts about mute, I’m an amazon music carrying podcast. Well, Karen, you know, I am quite pleased with the way that they have implemented amazon music. And I did share in today’s the feed. And and in Friday, She Podcasts, some of the data points that came out from amazon music, which were really quite mind blowing. Right. So this is what Rob said on the show. And I’m just gonna read it again here, because you asked and I’m just gonna let you know that as of he said, he mentioned that in November is going to be the first time that we’re going to actually be able to report like proper numbers for amazon music and podcasts because there’s no time in between to be able to really get a big data set. But that said the first okay. So you have to think about it in this perspective, which was a little mind blowing for me, the first full day. So the first full day after the launch amazon music on that one day had more downloads than downcast tune in radio, Castro and tetrapod Himalaya pod kicker. And luminary, not together. But separately. So plus some others that he mentioned previously. Mind you, that’s just one day worth of data. But he was able to, to see that that time many people were downloading using amazon music. So what that means is that on that one day, amazon music got more downloads than all of these other established podcast apps that actually have been around for a long time. Again, not collectively, so not added together, but each of them independently, which is actually saying a lot, because Google podcasts did definitely did not do that. Spotify also did not do that. So this is really, really, really appealing. very shocking to me. And I’m wondering, I’m wondering if this is going to be the big competitor here and I think has to do with the fact that they did have an established platform and amazon music is available with prime subscriptions. So anybody that has a prime subscription, has amazon music added to the mix and maybe already starts to listen in amazon music. I don’t know I never did. Because I don’t particularly lead with music. Like it’s not something that I, I used to a lot more particularly when I was teaching yoga and my lifestyle was different where I had music be a part of my life in such a much bigger way. But now it’s not so much. So it’s not that big of a thing. For me, it is something that it’s an extra, right. But that said, I, even though I’ve been a prime user for such a long time, I just downloaded the app. Yesterday, the amazon music app, have you guys download it? Raise your hands? Raise your hands. Maybe I should do a poll, that would be a good poll. Do you have the amazon music app? Let’s see if I can do that. Um, do you have the amazon music app? Yes.


And create poop in the poo. Alright, so I just added the poll. Let’s see if anybody can see it. If you want to vote, you can vote down at the bottom. So if you have downloaded the amazon music, I wanted to see if I had my iPad here with me. I do have my iPad. So I downloaded it to my iPad. And I’m going to show you toe nice it is. It is I was really, really impressed by the whole thing. Because,

Unknown Speaker 32:00

here we go. It might be doing different things. But like this is the first screen. But even if you have it just in the first screen, check it out. Right at the top. So at that top part here, it has podcasts. So it’s right on the top part of the thing. It’s very cool. They have podcast right up there. It’s very nice. That is just in the fine. So that’s the fine section. And we’re going to look at the home. And I’ll show you look at this. This is the home page. And look at the homepage. It has podcasts literally right in the middle. And it makes it so easy and nice for you to be able to see these things It is like super in your face. Did you guys see it that I have it like that? Maybe that’s better.


and the other thing that’s really cool is that it has episode artwork in there. And episode artwork is so cool. um let me see if I can show you She Palmer gonna look for She Podcasts really quick. And the other thing is that we actually come out. So when I search for She Podcasts, I’ll give you what the results were. So the results were with She Podcasts at the top, I hope that if I hold it up here, it’s actually better. Ah, you can see how it gives really nice relevant results. And then what I love the most is the episode artwork. Let me see if I can get here so you guys could see it. So that’s the page and then it has, if I move this thing up and down, you can see that it’s like every one of the episodes has a different artwork on the site there. And it’s really really nice. It looks great. The the show notes also look fantastic. So they’re very well formatted, something that Spotify did not do. So this is one of our episodes with a nice episode artwork at the top. And then it’s got like these lovely, beautifully formatted so as you guys know, I work very, very hard on all of my things. So I am very pleased with how they did this. And it looks like it’s very easy to listen, it’s very easy to download to the device. It’s also very easy to subscribe to these things in a year. I haven’t done much of that. But I am really impressed. I really like it a lot. I don’t know how well and I’m sure that it integrates very, very well with any of the smart speakers that work with Amazon specifically. So that’s cool. I don’t know, I have a feeling that this is going to be really, really nice. And and the reason that this matters is because it This isn’t taking again, it’s not taking people from, like other podcast ecosystems, right. It’s not taking people from Apple podcast and having them switch over to amazon music. It’s not taking existing podcast listeners and somehow usurping them, it’s I doubt it’s gonna take Spotify listeners to move to amazon music. That’s not really what this is, this is actually having your show into a whole other audience that may or may not listen to podcasts already. And, or, it can also add two people like maybe they that one person, like, you know how we’re at this moment, we are, let’s say at this moment where we’re trying to change places, right, so a lot of you have historically watched us on Facebook. And that is what you’re used to. And that’s where you like to be, my hope is that we get more people into the super squad, and they’ve never watched us on Facebook, this is really the only experience that they have crappy as it may be at the moment, this is the only experience that they have. So they’re really gonna just be here and consuming versus trying to drag people from one place to another. As you can see, this is a very big challenge. So I think it’s a learning experience in a variety of different ways sticking to the conversation around amazon music, I think it’s a great place to be they have shifted their TLS a little bit, I am not too concerned about having my content there. I would be a little bit more concerned if I had, how would I say it like if I had I don’t know if it was a little bit more of a company, like a very specific corporate podcast, or maybe something that had was very tied into income or an income stream, I might be a little bit more concerned with that distribution channel. But now, I don’t feel I’m not too concerned with it at all. I think that

to SRT OS, and my only I’m going to pull the switch would be if they somehow started to repurpose my content, use my content without my permission, all of those things. So you see it as a great discovery tool. Yes, Karen, this is what I see. Again, though, here’s the problem is that the shows that are as I’m looking at it right, the shows that I see that are being featured are the same shows that are always being featured. And that is just something that people do. Right. It’s like that. I don’t know how to fix that problem. But I think that that’s a problem from for the entire media industry versus just podcasts. Because as we know, there’s you know, the top 40 hits, there are the best sellers, The New York Times bestsellers list, and especially the top 10. Right, those are, by far get the most PR everywhere across the board, regardless of what that is. And this is what it looks like when it comes to podcasts. So whenever somebody is constructing a directory where they are showcasing shows, then they are going to go with the ones that get the most downloads. They’re the ones the most popular. They’re the ones that are possibly and I’m saying I’m not saying this to disparage our work, but they are the best in terms of a of being exposed to a podcast. So this is where I understand why they need to possibly have these types of lists is that if they’re going to somebody’s going to listen to some of these shows are going to get the best experience of listening to a show Great audio, very highly produced really killer hosts, like the content is going to be spot on. So the experience as a whole is going to be top notch. And with a lot of us in terms of being indie podcasters, as you can see, even with us streaming in this fashion, we have a lot of fails, we don’t have the, the option sometimes to clean up our audio as best as we would want to, we don’t have the resources to create a type of product that might possibly be like, on par with some of the core part core caught podcasters. nor would we want to be, so maybe there’s a time like, you know, maybe we don’t want that type of a show. But for a lot of people when they’re just stepping into podcasting, this might be a better choice. I’m not sure because it’s kind of like one of those things where you have to really get a sense of the type of show a person might want. And so they are really marketing to the largest denominator thinking of like what can appeal to the largest audience with the best highest quality without pushing too many boundaries. So I do see that they’ve got all of that stuff. And they do have their own podcasts that they launched with, they have one with DJ Khaled, and they have this other one called in la sala. And with Becky G. And then they have another one called that scene with Dan Patrick. So they do start with these really Amazon focused shows that are featured right at the top. So that’s what I think about that. Let’s see, do we have any other question? And actually, I’m really I’m I am impressed? Do we have any other questions other than how annoying it is to come in here for the Super Squad and has questions in this place. And I am super thankful for you that have come in here and put up with this yet again. Because I don’t understand why the stream is so unstable, even though now I have like really good. So he knows. So let’s show. I’m just going to put that up there. Because I think that that’s really cool to be able to see what the results are for the stream. And to be able to see the the poll, right. And part of it is that maybe our job is for us to download some of these other places where we may or may not be listening to podcasts so that you can kind of see what’s going on. And it doesn’t have the percentages, which is kind of dumb. It was 75 to 25%. Just to let you know,

because that’s what that was. So I’m gonna go ahead and undo it. But polls appear on a copper channel. Okay. Yes. All right. Anyway, Does anybody else have any problems? Or any questions for me to try to help you with? As I moved through, I should definitely have this like this logo down there should probably be the She Podcasts Super Squad logo, that would be great. To be able to shift that out a little bit. Anyway. Anywho anywho. Anybody else? Anybody else? What are we doing? What are we doing? How should we do this? I’m gonna if y’all don’t have any questions, I will not keep you here any longer, because I know that folks get very, very frustrated with me for being able to do this. And then maybe I can do a couple tests, doing some over on Facebook. And if anybody has any other results or any other suggestions of how we can keep things behind a paywall here or behind to have the option should be just simply have the option of having it on Facebook, but at the same time in some way, giving those that come into the space. brownie points of some kind to incentivize engaging behind this because I do feel that I’m going to be doing a little bit more teachings. I have all kinds of things that I’d love to play with behind the paywall. So you know, I would really love it. If I can have the option of just coming in here and streaming live. That would be amazing. And we also have other tools too, so I might consider Yeah, it’s stream yard work, I would have stuck with stream yard but alas, too many different things to do with that. So we have to figure that out. All right, my friends, I’m going to give you one more minute to see if we have any other questions come up. And my bed is totally unmade behind me because I did not make my bed today, which is sucky. And I have what do I have here what I have here, I wanted to see if I had any other questions and that might have come in while I was streaming, but alas, it doesn’t look like it. So thank you, everybody. I think I’m going to go ahead and stop now. Stop it now. Make it go away. Because we don’t see any more questions. Thank you so much, Jenny and Karen for sticking around y’all are superstars. I so appreciate you very, very much. And I hope that we can continue. I’m going to continue to be testing some tools out here and once again, talk with our team to see what’s up and we will take it from there. Again. Big, big love to you all and I will see you guys in a in two weeks in two weeks.
