4 Things To Do To Start A Company Podcast

0

“Video killed the radio star,” sang The Buggles in 1979. For almost 40 years they were so right that some people might have thought that they were soothsayers.

Recently, something’s changed and the radio stars — or the podcast stars, to be precise — are finally having their revenge! Podcasts are becoming increasingly popular, and some of them are so well-followed that even companies are using this medium as a way to conquer new audiences and drive the product they’re selling.

Babbel, the world’s leading language learning app, started an Italian podcast called 4 Verticale in February 2016. The two hosts, Stefano and Giulia, are storytellers who share their experiences with listeners: living abroad, being expats, making fools of themselves in foreign languages, and also sharing Venetian words that are used all over the world and Italian vintage insults. It’s all about being interesting, funny and engaging their audience.

Planning Your Podcast Script

0

The big question is whether you should or shouldn’t plan your podcast script and there are people who sit in both camps. Some believe that scripted podcasts make speech feel stiff and rehearsed, others believe it’s the key to being confident, concise and keeping the content flowing.

The answer is to plan, but to plan right, as it is nigh on impossible to create great content without some sort of planning, even the podcasts which sound ad-libbed are scripted and rehearsed to some level. However, don’t think that you need to produce a rigid script which you follow word for word, you can create a guide which gives you pointers and leads you through your topics. The power of planning is that it ensures captivating content which hooks listeners and keeps you focused.
