One reason companies don't start podcasts or start them and give up shortly after is because podcasts can be a big time commitment. But they don't always have to be. Here are 5 time saving hacks that will get you podcasting more efficiently!
- Prepare Your Podcast for Launch
When deciding to start a podcast, it’s more than just picking a topic. You need to think about how you want to present it, in other words, picking a format. What’s the podcast title that will communicate your brand and message best? What themes does your podcast cover? Is it an interview-style series or another format? What kind of recording equipment are you ready to invest in? Smart companies often decide to hire a podcast production company because they realize podcasting is not their core business, and it is very hard to maintain a successful podcast without a robust internal team including a producer and podcast marketing strategist.
2. Make a Plan
Planning is very important to use your time most efficiently. Coordinating schedules for your host and guest can be stressful. We recommend setting up a recurring time slot each week dedicated to podcast production so your podcast doesn’t get lost in the shuffle with your other priorities.
3. Don’t Rush. Learn As You Experience
The important thing when creating a podcast is to take your time. It’s not something that you need to learn all at once. Podcasting takes time to get used to and with each episode, you get to figure out what your strengths and weaknesses are. If you need all the expertise at the top, consider hiring a podcast production company to help you!
