More and more people are starting their first podcast, whether it’s a platform to share a personal passion, have conversations and interviews with others in their field, or simply to build their brand. Podcasting can benefit your business, service, or product in many ways, including: - Building authority through association and social proof - Allowing you access to new audiences - Helping you learn more about your target audience - Becoming a source of principal income It may seem daunting to start and run a podcast. Fortunately, it’s more doable than you think. You can start your own personal or professional podcast with the right plan, equipment, tools and resources. So let’s take a look at some of the podcasting basics. Step 1: Create a Podcast Plan Define Your Goal Define the goal of your podcast. Are you trying to learn about a specific industry? Do you want to share your expertise on a specific topic? Your goal should be the guiding light of all the decisions you make regarding your podcast. Pick Your Topic Make sure you enjoy your topic. You’ll be producing hundreds of episodes if it’s successful and you should like creating it. While also making sure your topic will attract the right kind of listeners. For example, if you want to cater to business owners about web design, be careful not to produce a podcast that’s so technical, pushing users to your competition. Name it Choose a name that reflects the main essence and point of your show. Think about how people will search for it or how you will say it out loud on the show. When in doubt, pick something clear instead of something clever. Podcast Format You have three basic podcast formats to consider in your planning: Monologue – This format features a single person discussing a topic. It’s the easiest kind to produce and can be entertaining and/or informational if you have the right personality. Interview – Interview formats usually feature a consistent host interviewing different experts on a particular topic. Production difficulty can vary with this type. Narrative – This format takes the above styles and adds the element of a story. This style of podcast can be wonderful, but it takes the most amount of effort to produce. Step 2: Purchase the right podcasting equipment Equipment can make or break your podcast. You want to get the right equipment to ensure the best possible sound quality for your needs and wallet. These three questions will help you determine what pieces of equipment you should buy: What’s your budget? Where will you be recording? How many people will be on your podcast? Setups range from as simple as an iPhone recorder or a computer mic and Skype recording software to as detailed as a microphone, mixer and digital recording studio. Step 3: Podcast recording and editing The recording will vary depending on your setup. Whichever method you decide on to record, you need an MP3 file to use for the podcast itself. You have two choices once the podcast is recorded to an MP3 file: Use the file “as is” or edit the file. Step 4: Submit your podcast feed Last, you’ll want to submit it to a podcast hosting company to store your MP3s and create your podcast library. When you start a website or blog, you need a web host Similarly, when you start a podcast, you need a media host. Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts are the “big 3” services you should start with, but there are plenty of others to choose from. Your podcast success is now up to you. Podcasting does take some work and technical know-how but it’s completely worth the effort. If you think podcasting would be a good move, go for it!
