Pick your topic
You’ll need to know your topic and how you will be able to expand that topic into something more than just a podcast. Podcasts are great, but they will need to be marketable. That’s just the hard truth. Also, know how you will stand out from the other shows. Little things do matter, from marketing to production to your on-air delivery. It’s that little bit of `different’ that will attract the listener into coming back.
Don’t be cheap
After you get an idea of what you’re going to do and who you are aiming the show towards, get digging for good equipment. You might have the best content in the world, but if it sounds cheap and the production is off, people will turn you off. You can get really good requirement on Amazon for less than $100.00.
It helps if you have some type of idea of how to prepare a show. I can help you with this, if needed. I’m lucky as my background in broadcasting and working with a podcast since 2014 has given me enough knowledge that I was able to pass the kiddie pool and jump right into the deep end. Take an online course on radio. You don’t need to know much. Just how to really put together a show and mic techniques.
All about the eyeballs
Create a webpage and update it often.This’ll be part of building a brand.. The eyeballs will come to your site to read your articles then stay to listen to your show. . Don’t forget that everything should lead to wanting to listen to your show.
Not about the duckets..yet
