7 Tips To Start A Podcast
HOW WILL YOUR PODCAST WORK?
Will it be an interview style podcast?
Will you host and narrate it?
How long do you want each episode to run for?
How many episodes in a season?
How often are you releasing episodes (weekly, 3 times a week, daily?)
Once you know these things, you can start a content planning calendar. Work out how long it takes to research, write, record, edit, produce and upload each episode and allocate enough time to make this work. Can you batch any of this? Work out what is really achievable and go from there.⠀
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO CALL IT?
BRAINSTORM CONTENT IDEAS FIRST.
WHAT RECORDING EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?
EDITING YOUR PODCAST.
SOUND AND GRAPHIC DESIGN.
Nailing the tone and brand identity of you podcast is important. Too often I’ve heard podcast intros that are so different from the actual podcast it’s like you’re listening to two seperate things! Make sure everything is aligned. If you are having a recorded intro and outro you need to source some licence free music to use for this, and invest in a voice over artist and sound producer to do this for you. As for graphics, make sure it’s readable on a small screen. Keep it simple, and visually appealing. Make sure it’s on brand for your business and recognisable.
