Today, we see Jay Acunzo launch the Experience Spectrum—on what we get wrong with launching shows (and how to get it right). Plus, we are mastering Twitter in trying times.

Before launching your brand’s podcast, marketing master Jay Acunzo urges you to ask yourself: Can it be anyone’s favorite show?
The typical marketer-made show tries to answer very narrow questions that can likely be googled or learned more easily by scanning a bulleted list, a blog post, or a full-episode transcription as a replacement for actually listening to your show, writes Jay.
So, in another step in his journey to answer the crucial question—What does it take to create someone’s favorite podcast?—Jay released the Experience Spectrum.
And our very own content-obsessed CEO Patrick Campbell is calling it, “Some of Jay’s best work and that’s saying a lot.”
On Friday, Jay launched part one of what will be a three-part mega-series. Over the next three weeks, he will explore three crucial concepts that, when combined, can reframe how we think about our shows, such that we can create someone’s favorite show.
And this one is dense. It’s about creating proprietary experiences. It’s about fostering communities, not commodities. It’s about asking the uncommon questions, and turning transactional shows into transactional experiences.
I could dive into this one for hours, but Jay says you’ll need just one hour total across three weeks (or 0.83% of your work time, if you’re in the 40-hour work week camp) to step back from the foggy content market and rebuild your understanding of making shows from the ground up.

It’s time to reframe what we’re all doing and put aside conventional wisdom.
Twitter in trying times
We’re spying a webinar we want in on.
The social duo reports they originally had room for just 500 people for the webinar, but they're now on to even bigger Zoom plans (looking at 1,200 and counting for this one).
Here’s the deal: It’s called “How to Crush It on Twitter” and it’s essentially a forum for David and Matt to share their strategies on tweeting consistently, driving engagement, and building an online audience.
Our ears are perked, especially right now, when Twitter is a major source of communication for so many.
I will absolutely be in attendance to see what it’s all about—and I have to commend David and Matt for offering it during the evening, nonetheless. We may be working remotely, but I know many of our days are still filled to the brim with responsibility, be it Zoom meetings or childcare. So I’ll catch you all at this one tomorrow at 7 p.m. EST.
