The Heidi Thorne Show Podcast to Broadcast on Facebook Live


The Heidi Thorne Show will broadcast live on Facebook Live, on Heidi Thorne’s Facebook Page (@HeidiThorneCommunications), on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m. Central Time (US), beginning Tuesday, September 25, 2018. The podcast is currently broadcast on iTunes, Stitcher and Podbean for audio, and on YouTube for video. It is hosted by business author, Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, who discusses self publishing and small business topics.

The new Facebook Live broadcast will allow users to interact with Heidi before, during and after the broadcast. An announcement about the show’s topic will be posted the day prior, giving viewers the opportunity to post questions they would like answered. During the the show, viewers will be able to post comments or additional questions for Heidi.

After the show, the rebroadcast will be available on Heidi Thorne’s Facebook Page, where viewers can post additional comments or questions. It will also be posted to YouTube, and the audio will be available on iTunes, Stitcher and Podbean.

“My main goal in doing the podcast via Facebook Live is to expand the reach of the podcast to more authors who are self publishing their books. As well, one of the downsides of podcasting is that it can be very one-sided, with hosts merely talking to the audience. This Live broadcast will give viewers the opportunity to ask questions and get the information they need,” says Heidi.

Dr. Heidi Thorne, MBA/DBA, is a nonfiction book editor and business author of several self published books, eBooks and audio books on business. She has over 25 years experience is sales, advertising and publishing, including over 15 years as a trade newspaper editor. Heidi holds masters and doctorate degrees in business, and taught at the college level for 5 years.

The video podcast will be available on YouTube on her Heidi Thorne video channel. Both the video and audio versions of the podcast will contain the same material for each episode.

“Even though audio content is becoming more popular, YouTube is still one of the world’s most visited sites and premier search engines. So the decision to add a video component was to reach more people with important updates and information on self publishing and small business,” says Heidi.

Have you ever met anyone who has made over $1 million over the years from a self publishing empire? Hydronic heating expert, Dan Holohan, of HeatingHelp.com, is living proof that it’s possible.

Marketing and self publishing coach, Heidi Thorne of Thorne Communications LLC, hosted a podcast with Dan to discuss some of his success strategies with self publishing.

Of course, Dan’s results are not typical and his strategies may not work for everyone. But they do illustrate the power of knowing one’s market and building a self publishing platform.

In the podcast, Heidi and Dan discuss:

  • Building community to support self publishing efforts.
  • “Recycling” and “repurposing” self published works to serve and sell both new and existing customers.
  • Expanding reach by creating “products” versus “services.”
  • How self publishing has changed over the years.
  • Using email marketing to build community and buyers.

Dan is a recognized heating expert on topics such as boilers, radiators, solar heating and energy issues. He has been self publishing on these topics for decades and has a loyal online community of 50,000+ registered users who are heating and plumbing professionals, but include homeowners and other interested groups, too. His website, HeatingHelp.com launched in 1997. His “Wall” industry discussion forum, with over 91,000 conversations on these topics, began long before Facebook even made the scene. His most popular book, the Lost Art of Steam Heating, which he first published in 1992, is STILL selling today. Plus, Dan’s weekly e-newsletter, which has over 6,200 subscribers, is a no-nonsense and often humorous insight on developments in energy and heating topics. In January 2016, Dan’s business was the subject of a feature article in The New Yorker.
