4 Tips on Making a Great Podcast

Podcasting is simple, but it’s easy to have some doubts when you’re approaching the microphone. Here are some tips regarding questions you guys have been asking us:

-Pick a good name It doesn’t have to be the snappiest title, but it does have to be memorable, and easily searchable on Google.

-Set up a time limit It all depends on what your objectives are, but 30-50 minutes is a safe bet. It’s long enough to allow the conversation to flow, but if we consider when our listeners are actually tuning in, it’s just about the right time for a commute to work, the typical drive, etc. Once you pick your time range, try your best to commit to it.

-Create a place for your fans to go when you’re not broadcasting Set up a solid network around your podcast where listeners can interact. Like to talk about movies? Get a site up, and include links to other reviews, show times, and more. Set up a Facebook page and Twitter account so fans can follow your updates. It’s what the pros do, and you have the same resources they do.

-Be flexible Don’t be afraid to make changes and develop the podcast as you go. If you need to scrap it and start new, that’s ok too. Sometimes a blank slate is just the thing to get the creative juices going.

So take these tips and go forth broadcasting away!
