Now more than ever before, we, you and me, have access to numerous venues where we can share our message as a broadcaster. Yes! Live Streaming via Periscope, Facebook Live, YouTube Live, just to name a few, and easy to use Public Radio and Podcasting apps such as Anchor. FM, have eliminated the barriers to entry for even the novice broadcaster. There has just been one challenge for many — getting noticed and grabbing listeners. Because of the number of interested broadcasters vying for the attention of time starved listeners, and truly a lack of a comprehensive index for folks to easily be found, it has been and continues to be an effort to gain exposure.
There is great value for young and old to participate in this growing medium. Because of my involvement over the years in training new broadcasters and live streamers on the technical aspects of things, I wanted to provide a way to not only educate, but to promote and create a supportive organization that could bring both experienced and novice broadcasters together in a Collaborative setting. Recently, I had a brain storm. Have you ever had an idea that gave birth to something that you just couldn’t stop thinking about? Well, occasionally, I let my imagination run wild when such ideas hit me. To address this challenge, I’ve started an organization called Broadcasters United™.
I wanted to build a global resource for the broadcasting community. Broadcasters United™ offers members the opportunity to explore, share, and learn from the diverse backgrounds, interests, and experience of others in the group. As an incubator for ideas, a source of Masterminds for current and future projects, a global directory for members, and the possibility for potential collaborative options, the value of this organization is expansive. Organizations seeking access to specific types of broadcasters will also find a diverse pool of experienced individuals who may wish to participate in this arena.
This is for users of existing broadcasting platforms and individuals with an interest in learning how to participate in these mediums. Media Hosts, Vendors, Educational Resources, Supporters and Sponsors are all welcome to contribute to the effort. The nature of this organization spans many demographics from young participants to mature and seasoned broadcasters. Language, Income, National Origin and Current Location is no barrier to entry. Podcasters, Live Streamers, You Tubers, Traditional Broadcasters (i.e.. Radio, Television), and others engaged in similar mediums that share an interest in modern mass communication are all welcome.
Broadcasters United™ objective is to be a consortium of unique voices who utilize the latest in digital Streaming, Podcasting, Radio, TV and yet to be discovered mediums to share their message Worldwide. Our objective is to provide a venue where contributors can collaborate, train, learn, and share their wisdom with other members.
I believe that “One Voice Can Change the World.” Collaborative efforts can amplify that voice. United, through clear communication and the combined efforts and support of members, each voice can and will be heard.
We’ll be formally launching this group soon and our Membership Directory is currently accepting new accounts. Membership is currently free and will be supported via Patreon donations. All interested members will initially meet in a Closed Facebook Group via www.BroadcastersUnited.com If you know someone who might be a good candidate for membership, please share this with them.
I invite you to reach out so that we may continue the conversation together. As always, I’ll be offering up my tech talk tips and Av-servations as I do daily on my station at anchor.fm/aSKaVIE. For an archive of all my previous Tech Talk Tips please visit www.techtalktips.com
