Feedback: Note-taking platform for podcasts

David Kennedy @Spdydve

Hi Everyone,

I created Podcastmarks to scratch an itch for taking notes on my favorite podcasts. So Podcastmarks was born. It is in its infancy, and looking for feedback.

I would love for you to create an account and check it out. It's free to start using.

Hope you enjoy!

    Hey David. Been pondering about the same problem. What are your thoughts on monetisation of this technology?

    1. 1

      Hey Dima - For monetization I thought through a couple strategies and landed on a subscription model. A simple free/pro tier model.

      What thoughts do you have around the monetization of Podcastmarks?

  2. 1

    Don't know if this helps, but here goes.

    I regularly listened to podcasts when I was driving to work. At a 1.5-hour drive each way, this gave me enough time to listen to 2-3 of my favorite shows. But as I was driving, there wasn't much I could do by way of taking notes. In fact, I didn't even consider taking notes at all.

    For my persona, it wouldn't make sense to use Podcastmarks - as I'm driving! It's not really about the "can't take notes as I'm driving" thing, but that hour-plus drive was more for me to listen and focus on the entirety of the podcast. And I'm already taking mental notes as I listen along.

    What I'm getting at, is perhaps there's a very specific set of people that you'll need to target, rather than just the entire domain of podcast listeners.

    Best of luck with the product!

      Thanks for the feedback! I do agree it would be difficult to use while driving. I use to listen to a lot of podcasts while driving. What I found was I would then save the entire episode, but in the future forget what piece of information I wanted from it.

      I don't listen to as many driving now, so I would have the opportunity take a note if needed.

      I am thinking Podcastmarks as more of a tool as you said for a smaller niche of podcast listeners.

      Again I really appreciate the feedback!
