[…] Building A Successful Podcasting Business
The Essential Planning Stage
This section is going to go over all the basics of coming up with a
great podcast idea, how to create it and a ton of simple things you
can do to produce your first podcast.
Don’t worry, this whole course was created around the premise that
you aren’t a computer programmer or “techno geek” and will be
very easy to understand.
In a moment you’ll get a chance to do your very first podcast. It’s
easy. It’s free. And it should take less than 10 minutes (although
your actual podcast will only take about five minutes).
As you read through this book you will discover that content is a
vital to finding and keeping subscribers. So before you began your
first podcast, start out on the right foot by creating good content.
While some podcasts have fancy sounds and a witty host and
guests, your initial podcast will just be you but it will still be posted
on the Internet, so you want to make a good quality podcast,
especially if you fall in love with podcasting and want to continue.
1. Spend 1 to 2 minutes and brainstorm some topics you are
interested in. He doesn’t have to be new and brilliant content
for your first podcast, it should simply be something you
have a passion for.
2. Select one or two of those topics that catch your eye.
3. Spend 1 or 2 minutes and brainstorm interesting facts that
you know about those topics
4. Group those facts together under one or two headings.
5. By now, you probably see the one you want to podcast the
most. If not, you’ll need to choose one now.\
6. Go online and find a web site that talks about that topic as
well that you can review in your podcast.
7. Write down an upcoming event that is related to your area of
interest. For example, if the area you’re going to podcast on
his genealogy, you might be able to find a local genealogical
society which has a genealogy fare coming up. If you can’t
find anything, think of a past event that you can review.
8. Develop a brief script on your own, or from the example in
the Example box that follows this exercise.
Here is an example script for your very first podcast:
EXAMPLE “Hello and welcome to our very first podcast at [your
web address, which you will get shortly… in the next exercise]. My
name is [your name] and today we’re going to be talking about
[your topic]. In this podcast we’ll be talking about [heading #1]
and [heading #2]. Later, we’ll review a website and talk about an
First, we’re talking about [heading #1]. Did you know that… [talk
about the interesting facts you wrote down].
Second, we’re talking about [heading #2]. Did you know that…
[talk about the interesting facts you wrote down].
Now is the time in our show where we review a website. Today’s
website is [say the web address and the name, if it’s different].
[Briefly describe the website and rate it on how helpful or
informative it was as well as how easy it was designed to navigate
Finally, we’ve got to mention the [upcoming event]. [Mention who,
what, where, when, cost, what to bring, what to expect].
We’ve had a great time on the show today and look forward to
having you tune in next time!”
That was easy, wasn’t it? Sure! There’s nothing to it. You probably
don’t even need the script, but in cast you do, you have one
available. It’s a good idea to work from a script, even if you don’t
read it directly, to help you stay focused.
Now you have heard other podcasts and you’ve created your own
script. Are you ready? Let’s podcast!
How To Become A Podcaster
Becoming a podcaster is so easy! Why not try it out right now for
free, and see if it’s something you’re interested in doing on a
There are two excellent methods available for podcasters and we
recommend you use them both.
The first is a free way that you can use to try out podcasting and
see if it’s for you. It lets you create simple 5 minute podcasts for
free! All you need to do is sign-up at their site.
First you’ll be creating a blog, which is like a personal web page but
designed to let you voice your opinion. Remember, they were the
forerunners of podcasts.
EXAMPLE: A blog is like your very own personal journal or diary,
but one that you leave open for others to read. It can be about
personal things, about your job, about your favorite hobbies, about
a pet. Anything of interest to you that you might write in a diary
can go in a blog.
You don’t have to have a blog in order to podcast, you just have to
have a web page. However, if you want to podcast for free,
creating a blog (as we will shortly) is a quick and painless way to
get a place to put your podcast.
Please note, this is just for beginning podcasters. The other
program (described later) is more appropriate for the serious
podcaster who wants to either supplement their current income or
even earn a living from podcasting. This following instruction is
mainly for the hobby podcaster with opinions to share with the
world, and for people who want to see what it’s like before they
invest in more serious podcasting. […]
