Steps To Starting Your Own Podcast

Podcasting is a great way to get the knowledge to your audience. It’s related to a traditional radio show in some ways. Your listeners can download your podcast onto their smartphone, hear it when they’re in the car while driving, work, or listen on their computer or laptop while at home.

The bulk of your competition most probably doesn’t have a podcast and most likely has no clue how to produce one. Recording your own podcast gives you an excellent chance to be one step ahead.

What Equipment Do I Need?

At a basic level, you can use your phone to record it on apps like Ipadio, Pocket Casts and AudioBoom record audio right from your phone. You then upload it to the internet.

How Long Should Your Podcast Be?

If you’re offering a how-to podcast, it needs to be as long as as the time required to show the audience how to do something. Your podcast’s length will depend on whether you’re doing a one-person style podcast where you do all the talking or if you are interviewing someone. The length should also be relevant to your topic and market.

Use your experience with people to determine how long it should be but do understand, that a crowd’s attention span online is relatively short. It’s not easy for most individuals to sit through a long podcast unless they are incredibly interested in the topic.

Which Is The Best Place To Record? A studio?

You don’t need to record your podcast in a studio. Many online entrepreneurs film their podcasts in their home office or even spare room. The central issue is noise – do whatever you can to make sure the place stays quiet while you record so that there is little to none background noise.
