Podcasting - A Simple Truth

If you want to start a podcast but don’t know where to start, then start here.

There are many steps to starting a podcast and getting it right.

Did you know according to Buzzsprout’s own audit, 50% of podcast episodes get less than 26 listens per episodes (Buzzsprout is one of many commercial podcast hosting services).

Numbers like these see many podcasters quitting before they even get started.

But guess what, most fail to plan their podcast and have no strategy, so the number of those who quit should be no surprise.

But the good news is, you can achieve better results starting out with the right strategy.

Here is a simple checklist to help you start a podcast

These are the basic components you need to consider before starting a podcast:

  1. Consider your niche
  2. Consider your audience
  3. Consider show format
  4. Come up with a show title
  5. Plan topics and episode titles
  6. Create show graphic
  7. Purchase/organize equipment
  8. Build resources (guests, scripts, software etc.)
  9. Schedule and Record Episodes
  10. Edit Episodes and Clean Up Audio
  11. Sign-up for a Hosting Service
  12. Publish and promote your podcast
