Getting through my email the other day I came across James Altucher’s post from March 16 “How My Podcast Downloads Doubled Overnight.”
He discusses various topics including the growth of podcasting, ways to increase downloads, and if podcasts make money.
What interested me the most is his advice to “Have a Unique Vision.” On this front, I believe, my brother and I are on the right track.
Our premise is simple: we’re two brothers with kids. The unique vision comes from the younger brother being the more experienced parent and the elder serving as the newbie. We believe it’s an automatically interesting perspective unseen in the #parenting space.
Why is it called Amateur Dads? Well, quite honestly, because we are indeed amateurs. We have no prior experience in this lifelong role as a parent. It’s on the job training 24 hours a day 365/6 days a year. We’re constantly learning in this ever evolving space and the more information we can share with each other the better.
I’ll link to the podcast once we are up and running. We have logistical issues to work out, but we’re both excited to get going. Until then, I’ve started vlogging. I may touch upon some Amateur Dads-like subjects there as well.
