Captivate Your Audience with a Podcast, with Mark Asquith, Ep. 71

Yes, I Work From Home

Mark Asquith is a public speaker and the CEO and co-founder of Captivate FM, a podcast hosting, analytics, and monetization platform based out of the UK. He's built several businesses since he started working for himself and with partners in 2005, and some might dub him a serial entrepreneur. Although Captivate FM is a newer podcast hosting option on the market, Mark and some of his colleagues have actually been hosting podcasts on their platform almost since the beginning of the podcast era when they started a tech startup called Poductivity for podcast interaction as well as Podcast Websites, another global success as the No. 1 managed WordPress solution for podcasters. They've made their way up the ranks as podcast hosting platform and were recently ranked in the top ten, among some of the oldest and largest hosting services. In this episode, Mark shares about some of the renovation projects in their new home, how they're currently using a kitchenette that's part of his above-garage office space while redoing their main kitchen. He and Sam are preparing to expand their family soon so found a home that would have enough bedrooms and still allow them to maintain separate offices as their roles in their company are very different. Mark has gone back and forth from working from his home office and a more formal office setting as well as a hybrid for much of his working career, even more recently; but he's currently exploring the pros and cons of keeping his office and podcast studio space versus having his team meet up in other locations as needed for collaboration as they all primarily work remotely for the time being. Mark and Sam have traveled quite a bit, especially right before the pandemic, networking and collaborating with other podcast experts in the States and other places around the globe. He has personally recorded over 1200 podcast episodes and was recording out and about as he traveled, and he talked about some of the gear he has used for years and has access to in his recording studio. He's currently recording a podcast about Star Wars as well as The Podcast Accelerator, where he talks about all things relating to growing and monetizing your podcast.

Success Using a Freemium Model with Mark Asquith

Behind The Membership with Callie Willows

Mark Asquith, founder of Podcast Success Academy, is my guest on this week’s episode of Behind The Membership. Mark’s membership story is a little different to most, not only because of its position as part of a wider ecosystem of businesses, but also because it has a whole tier that members can access for free! In this episode Mark shares how Podcast Success Academy came to be and what inspired him to build it using the freemium model. He also shares how he’s building a community with two very definitive segments who share an interest in all of his products and the challenges he’s faced in getting his audience to take action. Plus he explains how he’s going the extra mile to give his audience the best learning experience by plugging a gap of knowledge in the podcast industry, without the hard sell… And much more. About Mark:  Mark Asquith is a serial entrepreneur who has built several globally successful businesses since he quit his real job in 2005.Billed as the U.K. podcast expert, Mark is CEO & co-founder of Rebel Base Media, a podcast tech and strategy company that owns Captivate.fm, Poductivity, Podcast Websites, Podcast Success Academy & Rebel Base Studios and is well known as an insightful, thought-provoking and actionable podcast industry keynote speaker.He's a wildly approachable Brit, Star Wars/DC Comics geek and believes that good business starts with being good to people.Key Quotes:“It's a fascinating model. People like it. I think people like that transparency of "all right, you're a host, but this other thing exists, and if I want that, it's extra, but you're not pushing it down my throat." Whereas a lot of people would have to upsell something”“The ecosystem, this idea of growing a business or a set of businesses horizontally, not just vertically, was fascinating to us. It took a lot of patience.” “Our goal is to be a place that everyone can come to learn. If they end up buying, all well and good” Connect with Mark:RebelBaseMedia.ioMarkAsquith.comTwitterFacebookInstagram

(EP1): Mark Asquith Captivate.fm Founder, The Podcast Industry For Startups, How To Focus On Multiple Projects

Vested Capital

Mark Asquith, otherwise known as the 'British Podcast Guy' is the founder of several podcast related companies, including Captivate.fm, a web hosting, analytics and distribution SAAS for podcasters. Mark, like many entrepreneurs, got his start with an agency doing general web and media development services. Eventually this led to a spinoff podcast specific web design company, which Mark and his Co-Founder left the agency to focus on. After entering the world of podcasting Mark never looked back, launching his own shows, attending conferences and building more support services for podcasters. He also has plans for a team engagement tool, which he recently patented and will be launching soon. I wanted to speak to Mark because there is a difference between running an agency and building websites, to then diving into the world of SAAS and now also physical products.  It's not easy to make all these different types of business models work, but as you will hear in the interview, Mark had a method and a plan for moving from one focus to the next, allowing a business to grow, adding a team, then moving on to the next step. Enjoy the interview. Yaro Podcast: https://www.yaro.blog/pod/Blog: https://www.yaro.blog/

Dirty Dancing (ft Mark Asquith from Captivate)

Verbal Diorama

On the surface, a fan-favourite coming-of-age movie told through the eyes of young, innocent, naïve Baby Houseman as she has the time of her life meeting sexy, "bad boy" dance instructor Johnny Castle on her family holiday to the Catskill Mountains in the summer of 1963. She learns to dance, he learns to love. It's all very romantic. It's a feeling, a heartbeat. But, underneath it's more than that. Class divides, prejudice, discrimination, illegal abortion, sex - all the things that flew over my head when I first saw it aged 11-12. Dirty Dancing took big risks to come to the big screen, and it's those risks that make it an endearing classic, adored by millions, over 30 years later. Joining me in my kinda dancing, is a brilliant partner. Mark Asquith only saw this movie for the first time last year - and loved it! He brings a unique perspective to the chat, and bizarrely, some watermelons.... Massive thanks to Mark for taking the time to guest on this podcast and make sure you check out his work! He's the CEO of Rebel Base Media, and I can attest that Captivate is a brilliant podcast host, so if you're looking for a new podcast host, you can sign up to Captivate. He also hosts Star Wars podcast Spark of Rebellion, as well as The Podcast Accelerator; a great show with loads of helpful hints and tips on podcasting. There's no spaghetti arms on this chap....
