Do you ever wish you could tell someone on television that they were doing it wrong? It’s not that you are mean or that you are trying to hurt them, but you see something that they don’t or can’t.
What about radio?
Do you ever hear something that would sound better or if it was said differently?
It’s not something that I try to do intentionally, but if I am listening or watching and I hear something that sounds wrong, my mind immediately pictures what it would sound like if it was better.
Then I wonder if there is some way that someone could have told them. Maybe I could have told them. But how?
When I post things I know that there is always a chance that I am doing it wrong. There is a mistake that I will miss or not catch. At some point, I know that I will hear or see or read the mistake and then I will hopefully fix it.
But, what if it wasn’t just up to me to catch the mistakes. What if other people could let me know too?
I think I could catch more errors.
I think it would help me improve the quality of each new post.
Would I be aware of my mistakes earlier if someone let me know that I had made a mistake?
I would try to remember each reminder before I made a new post so that I could improve the quality and the content.
I hope not. Don’t get me wrong, the value of someone pointing out what I did wrong is invaluable, but so is the idea of someone giving me support when I get it right.
Criticism or support can reveal how to turn a topic into a theme or series by changing my approach.
That’s one of the main reasons why I am glad that there is a message feature available through the Anchor platform.
Not only can you leave me your feedback, but you can do it in your voice.
Not sure how to spell the thing that you want to say?
Need to put some emphasis on a few words that will make all the difference in what you are trying to say?
The voice message service is one way that you can give me feedback on my podcasts. It’s also a great way for you and me to connect, and for me to hear how I can provide you with the content that you want.
To help you see how this works, I have included a series of screenshots and two short videos.
If you did not feel like reading everything above you can watch this short video about why I want to hear from you.
Anchor recently released an update for its app. The changes are cosmetic, but this short video shows you how to quickly navigate to the voice messages feature.
Thanks for watching.
