Many people have dreamed of starting their own podcast – but many do not have the courage or the knowledge to get everything started. However, the process is quite smooth and intuitive – and as long as you have a structure for it, you should be able to guide yourself through it.
That being said, starting your own podcast does not have to be a difficult process – which is why we decided to help you out with this guide. Regardless of the show that you are planning to launch, from the idea to the publishing part, having a detailed plan at hand should be able to keep you motivated.

Planning Your Podcast
Planning your podcast comes with a few steps – but not at all difficult to follow. In most cases, if you decided that you wish to create this podcast, you already know the answers to the main questions. That being said, here are the main things that you should ask yourself – and one cannot be asked without the other.
1. What Is the Podcast For?
The first thing you should probably ask yourself is “what exactly is your podcast for”? Why do you want to make it? Are you a businessman, or are you a freelancer? Or maybe you are a marketing manager? Regardless of your reasons, you have probably found the podcast to be a good way of creating some authority. It is safe to assume that a podcast is a great method to offer your target audience some valuable content.
At the same time, you might be considering podcasting from the perspective of a client. So, you will be creating a show simply in your spare time – the subject being one that you are passionate about. In this case, the purpose of the podcast is quite clear. Regardless of the situation, planning the idea from the very beginning is what will bring you to your success.
In the end, quality podcasting is only done with a careful plan. If you don’t know exactly where you are starting and why you are doing it – i.e. where you want to get – it will be very difficult to reach success.
2. Who Is Your Podcast For?
You determined the “what.” Now, what you will have to think about is exactly who that podcast is for. Who do you see as the ideal viewer of your show? You won’t know what content you will deliver on that podcast unless you determine who your audience is. You need to paint a clear picture of who will be viewing your show – and from what angle you wish to approach them.
Your approach might be from a business-related point of view. For instance, you might be a trainer looking to make a fitness and health podcast. In this case, your target viewers might be those that are interested in a healthy lifestyle or weight loss.
On the other hand, let’s say that that you wish to create a hobby show – let’s say around your love for fantasy literature. In this case, your audience will be people that have the same interests as you do. They might be fans of movies such as Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, TV series like Game of Thrones, and so on.
This is why you should create the listener’s avatar or persona. Use that persona to put yourself into your listener’s shoes. Whenever you plan out an episode for your podcast, put the problem this way: “Would Mike, our listener avatar, like this? Is it focused on his interests, on what he likes?”
These questions might not seem like a big deal, but they’ll help keep you on track – allowing you to create even more engaging content.
3. Do They Have a Reason to Listen to You?
Now that you know who you are trying to reach, you need to figure out how you are going to make them listen to you. This means creating content that they’ll be able to actually use. You need to give them something of value, something that will keep them listening to you. It doesn’t matter what your content is, as long as you are providing them with something they can use.
Brand speaker and messaging strategist Loren Weisman also has some strong thoughts in regard to this:
“Everybody and their mother has a book and a podcast these days. Instead of telling people to check it out, (like everyone else already does)… Give them reasons to check it out. Tell them what your content is about, why you are sharing it and who would like it. Engage!”
Plus, not only will you have given them a reason to stay for the remainder of the episode, but you’ll also offer them the incentive to come back for more. You need to think about the success of your podcast in the long run – which is why you need to convince them that the next episodes will have the same kind of content. This is why you need to think of content for 10-15 episodes that you believe your audience would love listening to.
Choose the Podcast Name
The name of a podcast is very important, as it will tell your viewer exactly who you are, from the moment they come across your show. Think about it this way: when changing through channels, most people look at the name of the show – and based on it, they decide whether it’s worth staying there or not. If the podcast name is attractive enough, you may have gotten yourself a new viewer for the time being. If it’s not, then the viewer will simply hit “next,” considering that you have nothing of value to offer them.
Louie Ortiz from Monbi.com establishes the importance of creating a good name for the podcast.
“The name represents the identity of the podcast. It’s the stepping stone to becoming a brand – the main thing that will make the viewer keep coming to you. It needs to be revealing – but not enough so that the viewer can determine the full result of your podcast. Some would say that it’s something of a ‘clear mystery’ – one that will tell the viewer what they will find out, without actually going into the specifics. Your audience will know what they are getting into; they just need to see the road to that result. Curiosity is something that each viewer has – so, if you manage to pick your audience’s with just the name, then you have successfully established close contact with them.”
We’ve been told that we should never judge a book by its cover – but the truth is that in fact, we do. When we read the title of a book or a movie, we decide whether it’s worth reading or watching it based on the name. If the name is enticing enough to make them want to find out more, then you succeeded in stopping them from scrolling by.
When it comes to thinking out the name of the show, there are three categories that you may go for. The name can be part of one group – or a combination of more. Here is how it can be:
1. The Clever Podcast Name
At the beginning of the podcast, you might think about some clever, catchy name for it. But bear in mind that when people are looking for information about a specific company, they need to find that information online. Podcaster Paul Potratz also gave some good advice in regards to that:
“The title of your podcast should represent your style and give listeners an idea of what kind of topics you’ll be covering in your show. The title of my podcast is Think Tank Tuesday, which gives anyone looking at my show an idea of when they can expect to hear me, as well as indicates that the content will be informative. When you’ve found a title you’re interested in, search podcast platforms for it to make sure it’s not already being used, as well as to ensure there aren’t others that sound too similar.”
Let’s say that you came up with a clever way to name your fitness podcast and decide to call it “The Path towards Perfection.” It might seem like a good idea to you, but your viewers may not exactly know what to expect from your content. This is why you should add a little bit of description in the title, such as “A Complete Guide for Daily Fitness.” This way, your audience will know that you are planning to talk about workouts – and not anything else such as diets, make-up and so on.
2. The Descriptive Podcast Name
What some people might call the “boring way” to name a podcast might be the most searchable way. In this regard, you might want to ditch the clever names and go for the ones that your audience is actually looking for. For example, if you end up calling your show “The Fitness Podcast,” then there’s likely no doubt what the audience will find in that show. Granted, it won’t be as memorable – but at least you won’t get people confused.
If you decide to go down this route, then you might want to refrain from going for names that are too wordy and long. Plus, make sure that it’s a name that can be easily pronounced. You may have to pronounce it quite a few times, so it will be rather awkward if your tongue ties up each time you want to pronounce it.
3. The Podcast Wearing Your Name
Unless you already have an audience, it might be quite difficult – and not at all recommended – to start a podcast that wears your name. Sure, if you are Tim Burton and want to start your podcast, then you might safely go for the “Tim Burton Show;” people already know what to expect is. However, if your name is John Smith and your passion lies in alpinism, then the reaction of most people would be “who in the world is John Smith?”
Granted, you may use your name if you decide to name it as the John Smith Alpinism show – but you should refrain from doing so without including some other details. If you only use your name without any other descriptive features, not only will the podcast not show up – but if it does, the viewers will just end up scrolling over it. They won’t know what your show is about, and they won’t stick around if they do not have much to go on.
Planning the Episodes of the Podcast
At this point, you have probably determined exactly what you want your podcast to be about – but you still need to determine what you want to do in each episode. You can’t make every episode the same – which is why you need to keep some factors in mind. Here is how you organize your content throughout your entire podcast length.
1. The Podcast Episode Name
Bear in mind that aside from the name of the podcast itself, you also need to figure out the name of the episodes. Each episode will have its own content, so you may want to make sure that it is searchable. Make sure that you make those names as descriptive as possible.
It might be tempting to just leave them as “episode 1,” “episode 2,” “episode 3,” and so on. However, if you do that, no one is going to know exactly what to expect in those episodes. For all they know, you might be talking about goblins you came across your alpinism expeditions – they won’t know what to expect, and as a result, it’s unlikely that they will access your content.
Give them something to go on. Instead of giving it the standard “Episode X” name, try adding some description into it as well. “X Tips for…” and “How To…” titles are very efficient because they tell people that they can learn something from your podcast. And as podcaster Ryan Hanley puts it, it allows you to hook your audience early:
“Podcast listeners are no different than website visitors. You need to hook your audience early or they will not stick around for the body of your content. What I try to do is pull out one engaging thought from the podcast. If I have a guest on the episode it will always be from the guest; that way the audience gets a feel for the conversation they are about to listen to. James Altucher, of The James Altucher Show, doesn’t even use an intro. He opens his show in the conversation. No waiting, no guessing. The worst thing you can do is make your audience wait for the content. This can take the form of long intro monologues (mistake I’ve made) or unnecessarily long intro music (mistake I’ve made).”
You may want to add some keywords in there as well – but bear in mind that you should not choose keyword stuffing in place of creativity. If you want to catch their attention, you might want to get creative – and keywords might not always be the best way for you to do so.
2. Podcast Episode Length
The next thing you should determine when creating the format of your podcast is how long should the episode be. What’s the perfect length for it to meet its goal for your audience? Does every episode need to have the same length, or can you get creative and use different lengths? This is the most common question that occurs among those that are making a podcast.
The answer to that is quite simple: no, you do not need to make every episode the same length. Granted, you may want to remain within the expected range for as much as you can – but this does not mean that you have to remove good content just because it went further than your allowed time. You may have a standard time of 40 minutes – but no one will mind that you made the episode a one-hour long one if they are reaping good value out of it.
Here is what Chris Giliberyi, chief of staff at Gimlet media has to say on that matter:
“As a unicast media form, podcasts needn’t adhere to radio’s clock, in which content must fit 15-minute increments. If an episode wants to be 53 minutes, by all means, let it! The creators of fictional podcast Limetown skillfully exercised this right, sending several one to three-minute character updates down listeners’ feeds on weeks between regular episodes.”
There is no exact answer to how long a podcast should be. Some would say it should be 20 minutes, others would say you’d need to go for at least 40. The truth is, the episode should be as long as it takes until it meets the purpose. There’s no sense in cutting an episode short when you still have good information or adding a lot of fluff just to meet the time. It can be as long as it is needed – but you should ensure that you remain as consistent as possible.
3. Publishing Times
One more question that often arises is “how often should my podcast be published?” The answer to that, while not very specific, is very easy to understand: it does not matter, as long as you are consistent with it.
Some people want to publish their podcast once a week, or at least once every other week – whereas others prefer to go once every day. Every option is good, as long as you can maintain a rhythm. This way, your audience knows what to expect – and when to expect it.
Evidently, the more frequently you let your podcast go live, the more in touch you will be with your audience. You’ll give them more opportunities to download your episodes, share them – and you’ll be appearing all the more in the searches. That being said, the more you decide to publish, the more work you will have to put into it.
You may still change the frequency now and again – no one says you have to be locked. You may publish whenever you want. However, ideally, you may want to keep a schedule – at least at the beginning – until you start making changes. Failing to do so will only frustrate and confuse your audience.
4. Seasonal Podcasting
Podcasting does not have to go from episode A to episode Z, after which it comes to an end – not if you have good content. Here, you might take a page out of the TV book and begin podcasting in seasons.
When you are podcasting in seasons, you should make sure that each season follows a theme. Take that topic, polish it, and create about 6-12 episodes based on it – after which you take a break. Once some time passes (generally a month or two), you may begin podcasting again and repeat the process – obviously, this time with a different theme.
Let’s say that you have a podcast on rock climbing. The first season could be on how to do rock climbing as a beginner, the second could be on the proper equipment for rock climbing, the third on good places to rock climb and so on. This way, not only will you be able to remain organized, but it will also be much easier for your audience to follow what it is that you are doing.
Deciding on the Podcast Format
The format of your podcast is one more thing that you should decide on. In truth, the format that you choose will determine who you are and how you’ll be doing things. It will help your audience decide whether you are worth seeing until the end or not, mainly because every viewer is used to a particular type of format. Here is the Holy Trinity that you will have to follow.
1. Solo Show vs. Interview Show
There’s no bad choice here, but it’s something you should consider. Do you plan on doing a solo show, or do you wish to hold interviews instead? Granted, you may go for a mix of both – but you need to decide what the emphasis will be on. If you are aiming to do an interview show, then you should determine firsthand who you are planning on inviting to your show.
Interviews are a great addition to every podcast, mostly because they allow you to collect great stories and relevant information that you may not be able to provide for your audience. Let’s say that your podcast is about fitness and living healthy, but you are more on the “sports” side of the camp. Here, you might want to call a nutritionist as well, for instance. They should be able to fill in the gaps that you are currently not able to.
In the end, you might not want to see the person interviewing as a simple guest – but as something else. According to podcaster James Altucher in an article written for The Mission, the guest is someone with a very high authority:
“My podcast guests are my mentors. There is no one industry they come from. I want to learn the essence of peak performance, regardless of industry or artistic endeavor. There’s something spiritual about getting better at something that fascinates you. You reach inside yourself and figure out what strings need tuning in order for you to hit closer to that perfect pitch. My guests are the way I learn. That is why I do a podcast.”
Louie Ortiz, CEO of Monbi, also finds interview formats to be quite convenient – not only for those watching the show but for those hosting it as well.
“Hosting an interview-based podcast is indeed good for business, as it allows you to provide first-hand information to your audience. However, I might say that one of the most amazing benefits is that it actually helps us build relationships through a simple call. When you are talking to the host, you might end up talking just a few minutes – or you might end up in conversations going past one hour. Each time I’ve been involved in such a podcast, I ended up talking privately with the host again in order to conduct more business together. Some of those people I talked over the phone with actually became my friends.”
That being said, a solo show can also be quite beneficial. Here, you are the only one recording – and the only one presenting authority. It allows you to connect with your audience more, to build trust with them – particularly if you can directly help them. Sure, it may feel weird to sit alone in your room, talking into a microphone by yourself – but eventually, you will get used to it. It will just take some practice.
However, the good part of a solo show is that you do not need to rely on anyone else for recording the episode. Everything is exclusively yours, and you do not need to split any profits either. You hold full authority over everything that is going on during the podcast.
2. The Co-Hosted Show
With an interview show, you are borrowing someone else’s expertise – but technically speaking, the podcast is still yours. On the other hand, a co-hosted show will have you presenting alongside a colleague or a friend. Many people see this as a good way to prevent “mic fright” – similar to when you go to karaoke and pull another friend with you.
Knowing that you have someone else there with you can be great to calm your nerves. You can bounce off ideas, debate things, or even drop some friendly mockery in there (don’t be mean, the purpose is for entertainment). This can be particularly convenient if there is good chemistry between the hosts.
That being said, a co-hosted show might require you to set some extra time aside to record it – a time on which your co-host needs to agree. There is also the question of ownership: who will be the one to podcast it, will the future revenue be split completely in half? Also, what will happen if one of the hosts becomes unavailable and loses interest in the podcast? These are some aspects that you might want to consider before you begin broadcasting.
3. Other Formats
Podcasts can have more formats, depending on how creative you are willing to get. Some are less popular than others but depending on the content that you are trying to publish, you might want to determine whether they are a good fit for you or not. Here is what you may go for:
· Roundtable: Here, you have one host that is regular on the show, and a certain number of guests on each episode, with which you talk through a specific topic.
· Documentary: The narrator will walk you through a variety of conversations, interviews, along with on-location videos to paint a bigger picture for you.
· DocuDramas: This one is, as the name suggests, a mix between a documentary and a drama. This will provide all the info that you need but will do so in a more entertaining way.
Choose the format that you are most comfortable with and start recording. The process can be quite simple if you do some research on it. You may also opt for professional help from companies such as Monbi.com if you are not completely certain what you should do.
Recording the Podcast
Okay, so at this point, you have done all the groundwork necessary to launch your podcast. You have all the knowledge necessary to get started, you have the people, you have the format and structure – all you need to do is to begin recording. Here is what you must do to record your podcast like a pro:
1. Gather Your Recording Equipment
When it comes to recording equipment, you don’t need a lot. As a bare minimum, you must have a computer with a USB microphone, along with an Internet connection. Bear in mind that the lower cost your equipment will be, the lower your sound quality will be.
It’s possible to get great results with a simple USB setup for your microphone – but you need to get a good mic for that. Plus, if you purchase quality equipment straight from the beginning, you will not have to spend much money later on for upgrades.
That being said, you should try to refrain from going overboard with the equipment. There’s use in keeping things simple, in the sense that it will make it very easy to record. Choose a light digital recorder, and make sure not to go for anything too complex, as it might only slow down your recording process.
2. Choose Your Recording and Editing Software
Once you connect your microphone to your computer, you can’t just start into it – you’ll need some actual software to record things and edit the parts of the audio that require retouching. The good part here is that there are several useful tools for you here, and none of them will cost you a dime.
· Audacity: Audacity is a simple tool that even a beginner in the field should be able to use. You can cut audio files in there, apply effects, and edit the recordings in a variety of ways. Plus, it’s free of charge, and it should cater to all of your basic needs as a podcaster.
· Alitu: The Podcast Maker: Many people describe this as the easiest experience for a podcaster. This app can automate your audio cleanups with it, add the music, and publish it to the host. Plus, it offers quite efficient editing tools, as well as those you may use to build episodes.
· Adobe Audition: If you are a fan of Adobe software, then this one might also be quite an efficient tool. Granted, you will have to pay a certain sum for it to get the pro package, but the results are worth it. The learning curve might be a bit steep, but it’s rich in features, and it also provides a great workflow.
Each app is generally very easy to use – and in most cases, you also have an “About” section that tells you exactly what you have to do. That being said, even if those sections don’t help you much, there are quite a few tutorials around that might help you out.
3. Script Your Show
As a beginner, some would say that writing a script from the very start and following it precisely should be able to get you through the show. However, that is not always the case. Not only does it take a lot to come up with such a script, but it might also sound slightly robotic.
For starters, you can make an outline of the script – one that will contain all the points that you wish to cover during that podcast. Podcasting has an intimate nature by itself – so you don’t want to make it sound like it’s a sermon. Follow the bullet points and the outline that you set in front of you, and then try to set the entire thing in a conversation matter.
Once you become better at it – maybe hone your script-reading skills – you might write a full one that is packed with all the lines that you have to say. Still, no one says that you can’t go off-script. As long as it sounds natural, every manner of speaking is ideal. Only write a full script if you feel the need for it.
4. Talk Into the Microphone
Now, this is where things might get rather tricky. The planning part might sound easy – but when it comes to talking into the microphone, that’s where things may begin to get weird. Some people may feel silly because it just appears that they are talking to themselves, whereas others get nervous because they are talking into a microphone.
Instead of seeing the object or focusing on your environment, try imagining that you are simply talking to one person – your avatar or persona, so to speak. See it like you are talking to your ideal customer; someone who shares the same interests as you do. Try to think about the likes and dislikes of that persona, their day to day life, the details that surround them – the more you know, the more you should be able to communicate. The idea here is to imagine that your conversation is with them, and not the microphone – because after all, they are the ones that you are trying to reach.
Practice also makes perfect here. Becoming a better speaker has quite a long learning curve, and it might take a bit of time until you find your voice. You should do plenty of vocal warmups, improve your microphone technique like singers do, and overall get used to handling the microphone.
To kick things up a notch, you may want to hire someone to offer you some professional voice skills.
5. Set Up for Remote Co-Hosts and Guests
Sometimes, you might not have your guest or co-host in the same room as you. They may be in the middle of nowhere, but that does not mean you should not try your best to get them on the show. The good news is that we live in a time of technology – so, it’s easier than ever to get your people on the show with you.
Think about what platforms you have. Most people just use Skype to record their calls, as it’s a simpler option of getting both audio and video footage. Zoom.us is also quite popular to use, and it’s completely free to use for two people. For bigger groups of people, it’s only the first 40 minutes that are free. There are other quality podcasts there as well, so you might want to do as much research as you can.
The Podcast Production
You’ve recorded all the data, and now you have everything you need to put everything in motion. It is time to take that data and put it in motion. Edit all the mistakes that you may have made, add in some effects or music, and make sure that everything sounds great. Here are the steps to producing great podcasts.
1. Edit Your Podcast
You might be using Audacity to record your podcasts – or you might be using any other program. In that case, the chances are that you are already well ahead into editing your podcast, depending on what you wish to achieve with it. Choose a program that allows you enough freedom in the edits, one that gives you the effects that you need along with the precision to make the right cut. Monbi CEO Louie Ortiz also emphasizes on the way you make the video cut.
“Average audio editing skills are what make people access your podcast. Superior editing skills, however, make them stay. If the audio has not been edited properly, the viewer will consider your podcast of poor quality. On the other hand, if the audio is clear and edited up to par, it will appear of a more professional level – and it’s more likely that the listeners will stay until the podcast is finished.”
In some cases, you might want to get someone else to edit the text for you. Granted, it might cost you extra – but outsourcing might help you save some time. This applies particularly when you do not know how to operate a program, and it takes you hours only to go through a simple task. Podcasting should not be a difficult task – and the sooner the podcast goes on air, the better.
For this reason, if you see that it takes you too long to edit everything, you might want to contact someone to offer you some backup. That being said, if you feel that your budget is not as healthy as you might want it to be, then you might want to go for those editing programs that are more on the affordable side.
2. Add Music
While there is no rule saying that the podcast needs to have music, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t use it. For example, some podcasters choose to add music at the beginning and the end of the podcast, all so that they may add an extra layer of professionalism.
That being said, you may see a lot of TV series or films that have more than one minute of intro music – but it’s best advised that you do not go for lengthy ones. 15 seconds, in most cases, is more than enough to catch the attention of your viewer and build your brand.
You can use a variety of music types, as long as it fits the message that you are trying to deliver. However, make sure that you either hold credits for the music or you have the permission to use it. If you have the means of creating the song for your podcast, by all means, you are free to do so.
On the other hand, if you do not have the skills for creating that song yourself, then you might want to go for stock music you can freely use on your content. If it’s not from any free stock library, make sure that you ask for permission to use that song – and that you give credits by the end of it.
3. Include Cover Art
First impressions tend to have quite a big effect, which is why you may want to include cover art as well. Your podcast may show up on thousands of iTunes stores, so you may want to choose something that seems appealing to your potential listeners.
However, just like with the music, make sure that the art can be legally used. There are various platforms that offer you stock images – and if you are a creative person, you might want to draw it yourself. If you have the budget, outsourcing might also be a good way of coming up with a good image.
Finalizing and Publishing Your Podcast
Your podcast has been successfully edited and is ready to go “on air.” Still, how do you publish it? Where should you go? What should your next steps be? Well, that action is quite simple. Here is what you will have to do:
1. Find a Good Podcasting Host
If you want to get your podcast online, free for everyone to hear, you will first need a hosting account for the podcast – sometimes also referred to as a “media host.” Podcast/Media hosts are the services that will store your content so that your potential viewers can stream or download it.
There are numerous submission locations that you may go for – but one common misconception people tend to have is that you have to upload it directly to places such as iTunes or Spotify. The truth is a bit more complex than that.
First, you will have to sign up to a media hosting website such as Buzzsprout, Transistor, or Captivate, after which your content will be delivered to the other streaming platforms, submitted into their directory. Once the approval time has passé, your podcast will be up and running – free for anyone to listen.
You may also use Google Podcast, although that one runs slightly different. The show will be slower to appear on the search engine – after it has been uploaded for quite some time. This is why you may also want to build a website where you can host your podcast and give it some support.
Bear in mind that various directories take a lot of time to get approved. One of the most important ones (the ones that will get you the viewers) is Apple Podcasts – which is why you may want to submit early there. Ideally, the submissions should be made about one week before your official launch, to be sure that everything is up and ready to go.
2. Make Your Podcast Visible
Getting the podcast on the hosting account is the easy part; the most difficult part is getting the people to find it. This might take quite a few days (and a decent amount of patience), but once you focus on the right things, the process will be quite smooth. Here are a few tips that you might want to consider:
· Launch it as if it’s an event. Make it seem like it’s a big deal – as if it’s something that should grab the attention of as many people as possible.
· Make use of your network. At this point, you might want to ask anyone you know (family, friends, community, etc.) to help you out. Do not be afraid of asking for their support, because this is a big deal for you.
· If you have access to a significantly larger group of people (for example, your social media friends), you may want to advertise it as early as possible. This way, when the podcast goes online, it won’t feel like it simply came out of nowhere.
· Use the right tools. For example, if you are launching on social media, you may use tools such as wavve.co or repurpose.io to make small audio snippets. This will make the content more viewable and more enjoyable for your potential listeners. You may also use a tool to add words to your content, such as SplashEO; it will make your content more clickable.
· During the week of the launch, take the time to thank every single person that comments on your podcast. Ask them if they can leave a review and if they wish to share it with anyone who might be interested in your content. The audience may be small at first, but this valuable feedback will allow your podcast to grow in the long run.
It might take some time until you get enough visibility, and you might want to do a lot of marketing. Once you find the place to host your podcast and launch it, it might take a couple of weeks until you get the feedback that you want. That being said, you need a little patience and you should be successful.
Creating your own podcast might imply a few steps, but it is by no means difficult. All it should take is a bit of attention to detail – otherwise, everything is rather instinctive. Even if you do not have any prior experience in podcasting, it can still be easily done with just a little bit of research.
Make sure that you invest in the right quality gear and software when creating your podcast. This will end up saving you money in the long run – and will ensure that the listeners are staying until the end of the podcast. That being said, bring your skills forward and start recording!
