Accounting Apps Podcast| formerly Cloud Stories | Accounting Technology


“Cloud Stories is the world’s coolest accounting podcast” A guy on the Internet told me this once, and I choose to believe him!

The Cloud Stories podcast explores how business solutions integrate with online accounting software (Xero, MYOB and or QBO), and can, in turn, automate processes and improve productivity and profitability. By sharing Cloud Stories from the community listeners gain insights into how small businesses and advisory services can thrive in a brave new world of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robots.

Over the years, Heather Smith has interviewed Accountants • Bookkeepers • Business Consultants • Cloud Advisors • Cloud Integrators • Developers • Small Business Owners • and Solution Providers • who have generously shared their own Cloud Story on the popular podcast.

In this episode, I’m sharing a talk I gave on Content Creation for Building your Brand at the Tropical Innovation Festival in Cairns on May 23.

I talk about:

  • Robot vs human-led content.

  • How to leverage ChatGPT and other tools in your content creation process.

  • Questions are a gift, how to leverage them in your content.

  • Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose content

  • Being clear on the brand and image you want to present to the world.

  • It’s also brimming with practical examples.

Tools mentioned in the talk included

- Canva for creating visual content

- Otter AI for transcribing audio recordings

- Google Docs and Microsoft Word for voice transcription features

- Grammarly and Hemingway app for proofreading

- ChatGPT for generating content ideas and outlines

- Loom for recording videos and conversations

- MailChimp for newsletters
