How to start a podcast fast
Hey my name is Ryan Mclane from Podcastfast.com and welcome to start a podcast fast. The series
where I show you how to get your podcast started really quickly. I’m really excited to share
this series with you. In this episode I will go through exactly what you are going to learn
from this series and I’ll also talk a little bit about how you can easily get access to
this series if you want to go through from lesson 1 all the way through to lesson 9.
So there are 8 different lessons in this series that will take you from the beginning all
the way through to getting your podcast up and running. In the first lesson you will
learn how to record your very first podcast episode. So go through different equipment
options for you or go through different software for recording and show you exactly how to
use that so you will learn how to record your first podcast episode.
In the second lesson you will learn how to edit your podcast quickly and easily. So once
you’ve recorded your podcast, how can you add music how can you add voice overs how
can you edit out mistakes and all of that sort of stuff. That’s what you’re going to
learn in lesson number 2. In lasson number 3 you’ll learn how to get
cheap album mark for your podcast. So when you go into iTunes and you see people’s podcast
and they all have that artwork, I’ll show you how to get that for really cheap.
In the 4th lesson you will learn how to set up your podcast with soundcloud. I recommend
everybody sets up their podcast with soundcloud because it gives you access to the soundcloud
platform and the audience that they have on soundcloud which is growing every single day.
No other media host offers that so I’m going to share with you exactly how to set up your
podcast with soundcloud and make it really easy for you.
In lesson number 5 you will learn how to create a website for you podcast. Most podcasts have
their own website, this allows you to build an asset to drive traffic, get peoples email
addresses and make money if that’s what you want to do from your podcasts. So I’m going
to show you step by step how you can create a website and it’s actually not as hard as
you might think. In lesson number 6 I will show you how to
publish podcasts episodes using wordpress. So once your website is set up I’ll show you
the work flow of publishing podcast episodes so you can do it every single time and really
easily. In lesson number 7 I’ll show you how to set
up the blubrry power press plugin correctly. This is a plugin that you addon to wordpress
that turns it into a podcasting platform. It is the number 1 plugin for podcasting and
all the major podcasters use it and so I’ll show you exactly how to set that up correctly
so when you do submit your podcast to iTunes and stitch and people are downloading it,
it looks great and works perfectly. And in lesson number 8 that last lesson I
will show you how to submit your podcast to iTunes and stitcher radio. iTunes is by far
the number 1 place people listen to podcasts and I will show you how to get your podcasts
in that directory as well as stitcher radio which is very popular podcasting directory.
So that’s what you’re going to learn from the start a podcast fast series. Now how can
you consume this series as easily as possible. Well if you’re watching this series on youtube
then below every video in the description I will have links to every other episode in

So there are clickable links that will take you to the next video in the series.
