About
Creative Elements talks with today’s top creators. Through narrative interviews, Jay Clouse explores how creators like Tim Urban, James Clear, Tori Dunlap, and Codie Sanchez are building their audiences today. Not what worked 2, 5, or 10 years ago, but specific strategies and tactics that are working for them today. You'll also hear the specific elements of their personality, style, or approach that have helped them succeed – elements like focus, vulnerability, revision, and constraints. By learning how these creators make a living with their art and creativity, you'll gain the tools and confidence to do the same.

BONUS: Creator Economy Predictions with John Lee Dumas

EPISODE DESCRIPTION About a week ago, I was in Boston, Massachusetts for HubSpot's annual INBOUND conference. I was blown away by the scale of this event. I was lucky to be invited to come as one of HubSpot's creators to hang out in the Creator Cafe, host a meetup, and I also hosted a conversation on stage with John Lee Dumas, the founder and host of Entrepreneurs on Fire. He has over 4,000 episodes with a 150,000,000 lifetime downloads, and that breaks down to about 2,000,000 listens per month. Earns more than $1,000,000 in annual revenue. He and I sat down to talk about where we see the Creator Economy going in 2024. So in this episode, you'll hear JLD and I talking about our predictions for the coming year for creators.

BONUS: Creator Debates – Will Podcasts FAIL Without Video? | Jay Clouse vs. Joe Casabona

WATCH ▶️ Watch this video on YouTube *** EPISODE DESCRIPTION I’m excited to share with you an episode of a new podcast that I’m really excited about – it’s called Creator Debates with Justin Moore. You may or may not know that Justin and I are pretty good friends – his business is called Creator Wizard and he helps creators find & negotiate your dream sponsorships so that you stop leaving $ on the table. And he’s really, really good at that. Justin was my guest on Episode #112 of this podcast which was our first-ever VIDEO episode of this show on YouTube. He was gracious enough to be my guinea pig and I returned the favor with his new video show, Creator Debates. Creator Debates features stupid arguments to help creators make smart decisions. In this episode you’re about to hear, I debate with Joe Casabona on whether podcasters should be focused on leveraging video or not. And as someone who recently made the switch from audio only to video, I’m arguing FOR video. These guys are good friends, both members of The Lab, and this episode is a lot of fun. So, I’m sharing this episode in full with you today here on the feed. If you enjoy it, subscribe to Creator Debates in your podcast player OR, if you’d rather watch in video, the link is in the show notes.

How to build a great community (my appearance on The Learning Culture Podcast)

Recently, I spoke with my friend Andrew Barry on The Learning Culture podcast, and we talked about all things community. If you’ve listened to this show for a while, you know that community is really important to me and also an area where I have a lot of experience – having sold a community in the past and then also working with Pat Flynn and SPI last year. This episode is super tactical and specific about building community and some of the pitfalls to avoid. If you’re interested in community-building, I think you’ll really like it. You will learn about: Uncovering the job to be done for your community. Why making it peer-to-peer instead of one way is so critical. Why making the implicit explicit is going to help you define the rules of engagement for your community. How to increase the surface area of one-on-one connections at a human level with members. What to do with rockstars and lurkers in your community. How to create spaces for people and set milestones for members. How to know when your community is coming to an end and what to do about it.

BRB – Going on my honeymoon!

Hello my friend! I wanted to share a very short message today… This past Memorial Day weekend, I married my best friend! Mallory and I had a beautiful, amazing, perfect outdoor wedding here in Ohio surrounded by about 120 of our closest friends and family. We’ve been engaged since December 2020, so for this to finally all come to fruition in such a beautiful way was absolutely amazing. We got married on a 12-acre farm at a property built in 1850. There’s a pine forest in the backyard where the ceremony was held, led by one of my best friends who got his officiant license, my nieces were the perfect flower girls… Mallory was completely stunning in her dress, the weather was beautiful, it was just absolutely perfect. I’ll be posting some photos on Instagram here over the coming days and weeks. And now, we are headed out on a European honeymoon for some much-needed rest and relaxation. We’ll be headed to Dublin, Copenhagen, London, and Paris. I can’t wait to spend some time just hanging out the two of us. So, if you have any must-do recommendations for those four cities – Dublin, Copenhagen, London, and Paris, please let me know! You shoot me an email to [email protected]. Over the next three weeks, I’ll be re-airing some of this show’s most popular episodes starting tomorrow with Jordan Harbinger. So keep an eye on your feed! If you haven’t already listened to those episodes, I can’t recommend them enough.  Thanks for your patience while we’re out exploring the globe, thanks for supporting this show, and I’ll be back with some new episodes very soon.

To continue to celebrate our 100th episode this week, I’m airing a second interview with yours truly this week. This interview came from the Danny Miranda Podcast, where I appeared as a guest just last week. I thought Danny did an excellent job of interviewing and asking questions that I’m not often asked.

In this interview, I talk about how to create unique messaging, my brand new framework for creators which I call the MOAT method, what it was like to work with Pat Flynn, how his voice has actually changed over the years, and much more.

[BONUS] Creative Independence on The Accidental Creative

Last week I was featured on The Accidental Creative, a podcast hosted by Todd Henry since 2005. It’s one of the most influential and important podcasts out there for creative professionals, and I was honored to be a guest. And it’s great for the show too – I’m sure a lot of new listeners found Creative Elements by listening to that episode. In this episode we talk a lot about Creative Independence – a topic I care a lot about and think YOU will too. We all seem to strive for financial independence...but I think creative independence is an even more important goal for a lot of us, and I think you’ll see why.

[BONUS] Resonance Revisited with Jay Acunzo on Unthinkable

I recently started a mini-series of episodes on the show called Jay-Talking with my friend Jay Acunzo. Those episodes are intended to be a little more raw and really feel more like you are a fly on the wall listening to a conversation between the two of us. Well, Jay recently had me on HIS show, Unthinkable, to continue the Jay-Talking series. We are talking about one of his favorite topics, the idea of Resonance. As Jay likes to say, marketing isn't about who arrives, it’s about who stays. We chatted about Resonance and how he can talk about that topic in a way that resonates with guys like me who may NOT yet be focused as much as resonance as we are on reach or revenue. It’s a fun conversation, and so I’m going to share the episode in it’s entirety today on the feed.

BONUS: Building Community and Being Acquired (Indie Hackers)

In this bonus episode, I'm talking with Courtland Allen, the founder of Indie Hackers. As I’ve shared a couple times over the last few months, my accelerator and community Unreal Collective was acquired by Smart Passive Income in January of this year. I wrote an article about the acquisition, and it got quite a bit of attention. One of the places it got shared was on Indie Hackers, a massive online community of nearly 30,000 people trying to build profitable side projects. It was originally shared by Rosie Sherry, the then-community manager for Indie Hackers. And the founder of Indie Hackers, Courtland Allen, left a really thoughtful comment on the piece too. Indie Hackers itself was once acquired by Stripe, and now Courtland works for Stripe while building the community full time. So we had a lot of common ground. In this episode, Cortland and I talk about the acquisition, earning a living as a creator, why I don’t really like Clubhouse, and how to build a community online. Courtland is an incredibly smart creator himself, and I’m excited to interview HIM on Creative Elements here soon. *** LISTENER SUPPORT Join our community on Facebook Support this show through Buy Me A Coffee. *** SPONSORS Try Podia and save 15% for life as a Creative Elements listener Start your free trial of SavvyCal and get your first month free using promo code ELEMENTS *** ABOUT JAY CLOUSE Subscribe to my weekly newsletter Follow Jay Clouse on Twitter Follow Jay Clouse on Instagram Enroll in my course on podcasting, Podcast Like The Pros *** PODGLOMERATE NETWORK This show is a part of the Podglomerate network, a company that produces, distributes, and monetizes podcasts.
