Blogwarts Academy Podcast Resources

Have you thinking about starting a podcast? 

Already have one but thinking of changing providers? 

Podcasts are fairly new but on the rise!

There are benefits to podcasting. They reach more markets that cannot always access a computer, are able to be listened to when driving and also reach the special market of the visually impaired. 

Yesss!!!! 

Podcasts are fairly new but on the rise! They are gaining popularity and are a go-to for many bloggers turned podcasters to create audio content for their followers.

Understanding Podcasting

You may be wondering what exactly is podcasting and how it differs from other media. 

Many of guys have seen webinars and webcasts where we get to visually view the host(s), brand, products or events being presented. 

Podcasting is similar to that except there is no visual. They are just audio files and usually aired initially live. 

Very similar to a radio show but the great thing is you can go to the podcaster’s website or channel anytime to listen at your convenience. 

When you find podcasts you like, you can subscribe to that podcaster on their channels to get updates and access anytime. 

Podcasting is fairly easy to get into and many start with no upfront costs. Yes-FREE! 

Podcasting is a new and exciting medium poised to take off exponentially, but podcasts themselves are great for producing or even reproducing content. Especially if you already have created audio or video files or courses, those files can simply be converted into podcast episodes.

Just like with a blog, a podcast is a way for you to build an audience. As your podcast grows in popularity, the size of your audience increases.

Podcast Equipment

Starter equipment can be of minimal costs. As your show grows, you can invest more if you start on a shoestring. Bootstrapped podcasts can still be done cost effectively. 

Your microphone will be the critical investment for your shows. Audio quality is crucial for being crisp and clear. 

Some podcasters actually do solo casts as well as have partners. It’s best to have a variety of different types of casts such h as having guest speakers. Your guest can help keep your show jovial and energized. 

You will want to know your target market when creating your audio file. It’s key to remember that podcasting is different from blogging. With the audio version of your content, your audience will hear you and the delivery makes it more personal and allows your audience to connect directly to you. 

Selecting a podcast provider can be challenging as more enter the market. But it is not just about hosting, pricing, bandwidth and quality. There is much to know.
