Here’s how you can start your poadcast series
With the success of shows like Serial, TED Radio Hour, etc., podcasts have become more popular than ever. It has taken on new steam in recent times. Many individuals, businesses, well-known people and common people like us have also achieved immense success with podcasting.
Digiwale is a digital media agency in Pune who also work with digital media agencies in Mumbai, has achieved great success with podcasting. Their in-house project, Checkinstory, dedicated to travel enthusiasts has got colossal success with podcasting. They interview travel bugs and publish it on various social platforms. They have gathered many likes, shares and comments. Moreover, Digiwale’s co-founder Soham Sabnis also shared tips and his experiences with podcasting at Anchor, listen to it at: bit.ly/23L8Rc4. Apart from those spoken words, there are few more suggestions on how to create, record and publish your own basic podcast and get people to listen.
Podcast is not just recordings of people talking, but it is much beyond that. It takes up a lot of time to put together, especially at first. They do best when they’re released persistently. If you are intransigent in developing any kind of listener base, you have to be ready to release episodes on a regular basis. You can’t start a podcast without equipments like: microphone, a computer, audio recording software, and audio editing software.
There are dozens of podcasts available, that doesn’t mean you cannot add one more to the list. You just have to find your spin on things to make an old idea something new. E.g., the podcasts on Check-in Story are only about travellers and under such circumstance, ask yourself the question, if there’s an audience out there for what you want to talk about. Depending on the profile of the interviewee, you can frame questions like: Melvin Bocherthe CEO of “traveldudes” and the COO at iamabassador was asked the question How was “Traveldudes” formed? Tell us something about the venture ‘Iambassador’ that you are connected with? What exactly is your role there? Apart from these which other travel projects have you worked on? etc. Listen to the podcast at: bit.ly/1q5cJmg.
Or for that matter, a recent travel blogger, Siddhart Joshi, whose podcast went really well, has also been asked questions relevant to his wander ways and his experiences. Hear to out at: bit.ly/1T8mRVl. To listen to all the podcasts so far, click at: bit.ly/1rOHk8d. Following this step your coverage now is specific and once you narrow down the topic, it helps to add a spin to it. Find a point that’s personally interesting and you’ll be better off.
After sharing your details with the influencers, not necessary that all of them will revert to you. Few will and few won’t. Acknowledge the once who reply you back and ask them for their suitable time where we can contact them and finalise the podcast date and time. Once that is decided, set a reminder for yourself and also send a mail to the interviewee as a reminder. A day before the podcast, send one more mail to remain again for the podcast and ensure that the schedule is fixed and both of you are ready to take off with the podcast.
If your interviewee isn’t nearby and you want to use Skype, or other internet calling services, you need to install call recording software like Amolto, Skype Recorder, etc and import the audio call into Audacity the same way you would bring in music or other audio files. Once you import it on Audacity, you can adjust levels, assure everything sounds okay, add some theme music and once you are done with the editing, you can easily export your podcast into an MP3 file.
Last but not the least, when it comes to people finding your podcast, you should pick a name that communicates exactly what your podcast will be about, e.g., ‘Road Trips and more with Aparna’ reveals that it is all about road journey with an image that justifies the text. An image is essential in order to list your podcast in directions like iTunes, Stitcher and Blubrry as well as podcast managers like Pocket Casts and DoggCatcher.
Now it’s time to host the MP3 file as getting it hosted is essential so you can start distributing your show to podcast directories and the best option to begin with is SoundCloud, Podbean, etc. And finally your podcast is out there for everyone to hear and grow your audience.
