This new podcasting mind map template saves authors and content marketers time preparing podcasts and interviews.
If you use podcasts as a regular part of your content marketing, you should check out this two-part series that appeared on Mindjet’s Conspire Blog:
- Part 1 describes the importance of using mind maps to plan, produce, and track your podcasts. It includes an example of a mind map I created for a recent interview with best-selling author, Amy Morin, author of 13 Things that Mentally Strong people Don’t Do.
- Part 2, includes a sample Mindjet MindManager template you can view online or download and use for your planning upcoming podcasts. There are ideas for modifying the template or using it as a model for creating your own content marketing podcast mind map template using other mind mapping software programs.
Mindjet Dashboard Series
This two-part blog-post series is part of my ongoing Mindjet Dashboard Series which contains downloadable templates for using mind maps as an everyday content marketing and writing tool.
- Authors can use mind maps to plan their book’s contents, analyze their book’s competition, as well as prepare a marketing launch plan for their forthcoming book.
- Content marketers can use mind maps to follow the experts and experts in their field, locate appropriate #hashtags, and keep track of ideas for upcoming articles, blog posts, and white papers.
I’ve been using mind maps for over a dozen years preparing weekly podcast interviews with over 500 nonfiction authors and marketing experts. In the beginning, it was taking me 2 or 3 hours to prepare for each one-hour interview.
Working with Mindjet’s MindManager reduced the preparation time for each interview to less than an hour….and significantly improved the quality of the interviews. You can listen over a dozen of these content marketing and author interviews here.
