Podcast has been a consistent major media platform for producing contents & building brands because it’s accessible and really easy to set up.
However, if you don’t plan ahead of time and conduct a workflow before you start your own show, your podcast may not come out as you imagined.
Here are some key points on How to Start a Podcast:
Podcast is an episodic broadcast medium that will require your time and effort – it’s not something you do on day one and quit on day two because you want your audience to stay engaged and loyal because they see that you are very serious about your contents.
Think about what your show is about. What is the format for your show?
Recording is the fun part of making a Podcast and you don’t want to be bothered by trying to figure out how to make it happen. Anchor is a very useful app which provides a shortcut to start a podcast. You can use it to record & share your episodes on your phone in a very collaborative way. There is even a new feature in the app that now your listeners can send voice messages in to your show any time to give you useful tips or feedbacks.
Editing is very important because it creates/provides the style and the atmosphere of your content. A good editing software will elevate and define what you are going for in your Podcast and to make sure your listeners get your point across.
There are different audio recording & editing apps out there that you can choose from. For example, Audacity app and Adobe Audition are both good options for you to start with because they are very affordable and easy to navigate within their softwares.
In order to attract more listeners to your Podcast, it’s always a good idea to record 3-5 episodes ahead of time and publish at ones. So your audience can get a bigger picture on the format and the theme of your contents.
