There are many technical information that you need to start a podcast which is why so many aspiring podcasters give up even before creating one. They have a lot of knowledge that they want to share through a podcast and they also have the voice for it. But even though the skill and the interest are there, they say they are too busy to learn about the technicalities that they just don’t push through with the podcast idea.
Well, it doesn’t necessarily have to be too technical. There are actually many apps available that can edit podcasts for you. All you have to do is to think about your topic, make a rough outline of what you’re going to talk about (or write the full script if you want to), and record it. You can then add, using apps like Anchor, the intro, and outro music, and then you’re good. Anchor, as a podcast host, can automatically upload it to the podcast streaming app of your choices such as Apple Podcast or Spotify. It even generates an RSS feed link that you can copy and paste to multiple podcast channels so that you can be ensured your podcast is being heard by whatever streaming app there is on the Internet.
If we’re talking about equipment, you can just record using your phone or your laptop in a quiet area. If you have a big closet, you can stay inside while you record the whole podcast. You can buy a cheap diffuser on Amazon so that the sound quality is good. In the post-processing stage, you can eliminate any background noise using Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Audition, or other apps.
When you’re about to share it in your socials, you have to make a logo for your podcast and all you have to do is trim your audio to the part where you said your best lines and share the link for the world to hear the whole episode.
It might be really overwhelming but if you have the motivation to get it off the ground, it’s really not that difficult of a process. What’s holding you back is that maybe you don’t have that strong enough of a reason to start one.
Well, for starters, if you are an aspiring digital content creator but is shy to be in videos, then the podcast is the perfect platform for you. It’s only your voice that’s going to be heard and it’s not in real-time so you can edit the stutters and dead silence if you ever find yourself in that awkward position. So many people have started listening to podcasts, even more so during the pandemic, so it’s a great platform to expand your audience if again, you’re a digital content creator and/or an entrepreneur. You will also get to impart knowledge to other people having the opportunity to change their lives.
And plus, podcasts are so fun to record! You get to practice your oral speaking skills and get to share your thoughts with minimal filter. And it’s also another way to earn. You can collaborate with brands and ask them to sponsor an episode or you can record yourself doing the podcast and share the video version on YouTube where you earn money every time an ad plays.
When you’re doing your podcasts, it helps if you have the right tools in your workspace. It needs to be spacious and organized as well as ensure that you’re comfortable the whole time.
