How to start your own Podcast
Do you want to start a podcast and don’t know where to begin? I’m an active Podcaster and I asked the very same question when I wanted to start. I’ve been in the Internet marketing space since 1995. Setting up a Podcast is one of the most easiest things I have done. First thing I would do would be to buy a high-quality recording device. The one I got was a bit of an overkill, but still very affordable. My recommendation is the ‘*ZOOM H6 Handy Recorder*‘ they range from NZ$500-$700 as it all depends on where you shop, make sure you get a genuine one from one of their approved suppliers. Six interchangeable input capsules make the ZOOM H6 the ultimate recorder for film, video, podcast and music. Its advanced preamps make it the best-sounding one, too. Unmatched abilities. Award-winning quality. You may not need any additional microphones with the ZOOM H6, however if you do an ideal studio microphone would be the *Audio-Technica BP40* broadcast vocal microphone offers a rich, natural, condenser-like sound from a large-diaphragm dynamic design. I also use the *Blue Yeti Pro USB Microphone* because I wanted a mike where I can record multiple people in a room at the same time, the Yeti Pro provides three custom condenser capsules with four distinct recording patterns and you need that to record multiple people. Not a necessity, however it’s good to have some audio editing software, As I like to bookend my podcast with an intro and outro. I have been using *Camtasia* you can use it to get the best sound out of your recordings. Next, you need a podcast hosting service. I joined a Podcasting Facebook group that had over 26,000 members, and I asked the person who ran the group what one he would recommend, and he gave me a link to *Buzzsprout*. The real exciting thing for me was that I wanted my podcast to appear in Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more. *Buzzsprout* provides this service and you can start free and you can upgrade at anytime as your podcast grows. Basically you pay as your podcast hours increase. *Buzzsprout* The best way to launch a professional podcast. Today is a great day to start your own podcast. Whether you’re looking for a new marketing channel, have a message you want to share with the world, or just think it would be fun to have your own talk show… podcasting is an easy, inexpensive, and fun way to expand your reach online. *Buzzsprout* is hands down the easiest and best way to launch, promote, and track your podcast. Your show can be online and listed in all the major podcast directories (like Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and more) within minutes of finishing your recording. Podcasting isn’t hard when you have the right partners, and the team at *Buzzsprout* is passionate about helping you succeed. Join over a hundred thousand podcasters already using *Buzzsprout* to get their message out to the world. You’ll get a great looking podcast website, audio players that you can drop into other websites, detailed analytics to see how people are listening, tools to promote your episodes, and more. Podcasting isn’t hard when you have the right partners.

Beginner's Guide to SEO [Search Engine Optimisation)
This is a series of *Podcast* by Danny de Hek with the goal to give you more insight and control of your own Internet marketing without being exploited by Website Design & Development + SEO companies. Over the next few weeks, I will be publishing a set of Podcast on #WebArchitecture #DomainNames #Email #WebHosting #Content #Maintenance #SEO #SearchEngineOptimisation and #PaidAdvertising What’s my background, how long have you got? My claim to fame – I started the first Internet cafe in Christchurch with a friend back in 1995 it was called The Email Centre on Worcester Boulevard. People who used to come and use our cyber services taught me how the Internet worked, looking back it was enough to make me dangerous. At that time my expertise was getting people with computers onto the Internet and teaching them how to surf the World Wide Web. After 12 months I gained enough knowledge simply by looking over peoples shoulders, asking questions and seeing what others were using the Internet for. I learnt to be able to set up a basic website. One day I decided to sell everything I owned to buy a laptop and shortly after I maxed out my credit card with one of the first digital cameras that came to the market. I was equipped and ready to rock and roll as a mobile internet consultant. I used to travel around New Zealand claiming to be New Zealand’s leading Internet consultant. For a one time setup cost of $300 and monthly hosting, promotion and maintenance for $30 a month, businesses could have a web presence within *New Zealand’s Information Network*. At one point I represented 45 different rental car brands, tourism companies and many accommodation providers throughout New Zealand. I was self appointed but I certainly made a big impact on the travel and tourism industry in New Zealand which earned me a six-figure income along the way. Being dyslexic and not being able to read and write, I kind of stood out like a sore thumb. I received a lot of criticism in an industry that wasn’t regulated by so-called peers, known these days as keyboard warriors. However it made me stronger and more determined to succeed, the old saying “no such thing as bad press” was certainly true in my case, the fact is it put me on the map! A few years later as the internet became more prominent and competitive, web development companies would approach my clients with flashy website designs which I couldn’t compete with. Understandably many of my clients wanted to take control of their own Internet services in house. This was my turning point, I re-strategised and invested time in myself and started doing a lot of affiliate marketing and commission based work. With a little luck one of my affiliate sites started generating $40,000 worth of profit each month. That site used to get 25,000 IP visits per day, the knowledge I learnt at that time was the real value. These days I own and run *ELITE : SIX* Business Networking and continue to look after a handful of loyal website clients, and I run a few drop shipping websites of my own. A lot of the knowledge I’ve learnt from marketing other people‘s businesses and having my own sites, has kept me in the know and a leader in the industry of Internet marketing.

Jehovah's Witness Danny de Hek Disfellowshipped Twice - Documentary "The Watchtower"
This podcast was inspired by watching the documentary “The Watchtower” aired on *Oxygen.com* in February 2020 I was bought up a Jehovah’s Witness. I was disfellowshipped twice, I got reinstated after only four months, and then disfellowshipped again 6 months later. My family doesn’t speak to me and I’ve been out of the organisation since 1993. I’ve had two family members commit suicide and I believe one of the main factors was the Jehovah’s Witness organisation. I had to start over from scratch at the age of 23. All the people I looked up to, all the people that gave me leadership and my best and dearest friends, were lost and I couldn’t communicate with them. Honestly, I do not believe I have a chip on my shoulder, however the influence this organisation has on people has to be spoken about. Ironically, they believe that the world will turn on them one-day, who knows, this could be the beginning. Feel free to contact me if you would like an interview.

Talk to Strangers
Today I'm talking about the hassles I had with the insurance company with my car, also *My Trip* away and how important communities are in our lives in the modern world. *China* I travelled China Dec 2019 - I was only there for 3 days as a stop over. I went to Guangzhou and travelled to Shenzhen and back to Guangzhou again. The subway system is amazing and simple to use even for a dyslexic person who struggles to read and write. The people keep to themselves, however if you need a hand for directions they're always willing to help. The cities are amazing, unreal buildings, the street food, the culture was all very exciting for me, I loved it and I want to go back. *See Photos on Facebook** Bangladesh *I travelled Bangladesh Dec 2019 - it's very hard country to travel nightmare buses and second class trains, it was a real adventure the people make the country amazing, it was hard, never a dull moment it was always dirty, but I always felt safe and I when into some off the beaten tracks, I walked around some scody places to get some good shots. I kid you not I was there 10 days and NEVER met another tourist. *See Photos on Facebook* * India *I have travelled India twice the 1st time was back in 1999 and said I would never come back, however it was the country I wanted to visit again the most so in 2020 I came back for another go. This time with a 20MB Sony A6000 Camera, last time had the good old Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F717 with the Carl Zeiss lens. *See Photos on Facebook** *

The Queens Speech
*What a wicked couple of weeks I must’ve been naughty in a former life or this one! * As many of you know I’m planning *My Trip* and I leave on Friday the 13th, unlucky date for some, as I’m heading to China, Bangladesh and coming home via New Delhi India. This intrepid journey is to celebrate my 50th. My main goal is to travel on top of a train in Bangladesh and take some awesome street photography, as well as a whole lot of video blogs for my *TikTok* account. Shit happens and shit happened when my car was parked on the side of the road last week. A 17-year-old guy who wasn’t concentrating on his driving, was dropping off a customers vehicle after it had been serviced from *Blackwells Mazda*. He crashed into my vehicle and set off his airbags, he went on two wheels flying past the doctors surgery window. I ran out to see what had happened and if he was ok and noticed he had smashed into my car. As you can imagine this wasn’t really something I needed to deal with just bef…

Living with the gift of Dyslexia
I have something in common with the following people; Richard Branson, Pablo Picasso, Alexander Graham Bell, Einstein, Nigel Kennedy, John Lennon, Walt Disney, Tommy Hilfiger, Andy Warhol, Whoopi Goldberg, Henry Wrinkler (Fonzie!), Danny Glover. They all have the gift of dyslexia! so forgive Mr de Hek’s blogging the words get in the way of what I am trying to say. Gift Usually when people hear the word dyslexia they think only of reading, writing, spelling, and math problems a child is having in school. Some associate it only with word and letter reversals, some only with slow learners. Almost everyone considers it some form of a learning disability, but the learning disability is only one face of dyslexia. The positive side of dyslexia is once you discover that the kids at school that gave you are hard time were in fact wrong and you were not stupid and you just look at stuff differently to the “Educated”. There is always a way when there’s a will to get around obstacles do…

Tips on Battling Loneliness
Have you ever felt that if you were not on the earth that no one would miss you? Have you ever lost your ambitions, your drive, your sense of belonging? Had no real direction in life or more importantly no purpose? My wife asked for a divorce and my appendix burst… and this all happened within 24 hours. As you can imagine this was exactly how I felt - my cozy little world was tipped upside down in a flash, I was now fighting for both my health and my material assets. I would like to share some of the things with you that I did, that helped me overcome my loneliness and regain my strength, direction and my purpose in life. *TIP*: I often tell people they need to do the grind, the grind is where you do the motions even though your heart is not really in it. You just do what you gotta do, day in and day out. *Let me explain a few of the things that I did* * I started going to the local pub. It was great – there were a few people that didn’t really seem to be going anywhere ex…
