This is an exciting day for me.
Today is the debut of my new video podcast: Jay Today.
- Each episode is just 3 minutes long
- New episodes almost every business day
- Each episode includes a social media, content marketing, business or entrepreneurship tip or commentary
- Each episode includes a shout out to someone in business YOU should be following
Here’s a Slideshare presentation that describes the show, and includes several episodes embedded:
Why I’m Doing This
I have a lot of irons in the fire, but I’ve discovered that I have so many things that I want to teach, and so many quick tips and ideas and comments, but I don’t have a great way to share short-form content. I have the weekly Social Pros podcast, but that show is devoted to showcasing the incredible social media professionals who join us as guest. I have the Baer Facts interviews I do with Kyle Lacy from ExactTarget, but they are once a week or so. I of course have this blog, Convince & Convert, but our amazing cast of guest contributors are doing such a great job of producing top-flight content that I only write here once a week or so.
Plus, with my travel schedule, I needed a way to create short-form content on-the-fly. Thus, Jay Today!
The show is sponsored by Sprout Social – a fantastic social media management platform for business that we use to manage our social media at Convince & Convert, and I use personally. Thanks to them for being the charter sponsor of this venture. The Jay Today show is also sponsored by my friends at Candidio.
Candidio is an amazing video editing service. I just shoot the Jay Today episodes on my iPhone, upload them to Candidio, and they make them look and sound excellent. Very reasonable pricing, and incredibly responsive. If you’re making video (and you should be), talk to them about helping you do it better and faster.

What Do You Think?
This new Jay Today show is a total leap of faith for my sponsors, for me and for you. I do sincerely hope you’ll give it a try, and I’d love your feedback on the concept, the format, the topics or anything at all.
