Podcasting has become an increasingly popular way for you to share your stories and ideas with others. It’s also a great way to build a following and earn money online. Here are some tips to help you start your podcast.
Choose a Topic That Interests You
If you’re going to start a podcast, make sure you choose a topic that interests you. That interest will help keep you motivated and focused throughout the process and give you a starting point.
Determine Your Focus and Tone
Will your podcast be comical, analytical, or even academic? That focus and tone will inform how you approach your topic as well as allow you to better engage with your audience. Your tone and focus will give you a better understanding of the audience who might be interested in your podcast.
Find an Audience
Once you’ve chosen a topic, find an audience of those individuals who share your interest and passion. Ask them what they think about the topic. Listen to their feedback and incorporate it into your show.
Write a Great Intro
An intro is one of the first things people hear when they listen to your podcast. Make sure you consider the tone of your show so you can fully engage with your audience. Studies show that you could lose 20-35% of your listeners in the first 5 minutes of your podcast.
Create a Show Schedule
A good podcast schedule will help you plan out when you’ll record for each episode. It’s also helpful to set aside some time every week to record an episode. If you’re recording multiple episodes per week, take breaks between recordings so you can focus on other aspects of your business.
