Feb 28 17
So a BIG question I get a lot is "what do I really need to start podcasting and what are the costs"? I love this because it is super simple, well I keep it super simple and I teach you to do the same. Who needs or wants difficult? NOT ME! I like to create my podcast so I can keep up with it and really enjoy the show and my guests. So let me break this down for you: "What do I really need to start podcasting" THE TOOLS: computer/laptop microphone or earbuds media host/rss feed quiet space to record zoom/skype to interview blog/website iTunes to tag a way to organize your ideas/shows/guests apple id/ working email branding for show, artwork, intro/outro/description (all done in libsyn) Editing software- Garageband, Audacity, or Adobe Audition These are the 11 main things you need to make your recordings a podcast! I know it seems like a lot but once you get going I promise you, it will all just melt together and you will have a new platform you can call your baby! Ok lets get into the costs: Microphone- $15.99 and WAAAAAY UP Computer if you don't have, buy used or a nice one for a business purpose Hosting- $15.99/month with libsyn blog/website- depends on your package and if you are hiring someone, libsyn supplies this for you branding done in CANVA or Wordswag- DIY for free editing- DIY for free or you can hire me to help you out zoom/skype- free or ecamm recorder for $29.99 software for Skype or facetime- tagging- do right in iTunes for free.
