are you ready to start a podcast?

 

 

Starting a podcast can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but it can also be a daunting task. There are many things to consider when starting a podcast, from choosing a topic to deciding on the right technology. In this episode of the Delaware Blogger Podcast, I will share the top 3-T’s of starting a podcast: topic, time, and technology.  

 

Most of you know that I authored Podcasting Your Purpose Resource Guide which covers everything from Choosing Your Topic to Monetizing Your Podcast, here is the link so you can purchase a copy.

 

 

 

However, in today’s episode of the Delaware Blogger Podcast, episode # 344, I wanted to focus on the 3 T’s of Starting a Podcast.

 

Topic

 

Choosing a topic for your podcast is one of the most important steps in the process. Your topic should be something that you’re passionate about one that you can talk about for hours, every week, every month for years to come.

 

It should also be something that your audience will be interested in. Think about what topics you’re knowledgeable about and what topics your audience might be interested in. You can also look at other podcast topics to see if there’s a gap in the market that you can fill.

 

Time

 

Once you’ve chosen a topic, it’s time to decide how often you’ll be recording and releasing episodes. This will depend on how much time you have available and how often you want to release new content. You can choose to record and release episodes weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly which I don’t recommend because “out of sight out of mind” also works with audio. 

 

If you make your listeners wait for new episodes monthly, they tend to forget about you and aren’t as loyal as weekly listeners are.  To avoid the time constraints of life, you can and should choose to record multiple episodes at once and release them over a period of time.  Remember, this is what was discussed in Episode # 342, 10 Reasons Why Pre-Planning Your Podcast is Essential for Success

 

Technology

 

The technology you use to record and distribute your podcast is also important. You’ll need a microphone, a computer, and recording software. You’ll also need to decide how you’ll be distributing your podcast. You can use a podcast hosting service such as Buzzsprout, EC Podcast Media, Libsyn or Podbean, or you can host your podcast on your own website. 

 

You’ll also need to decide how you’ll be promoting your podcast. You can use social media, email, and other marketing tactics to get the word out about your podcast. Newsletters are also great for podcast distribution.
