Create WordPress Posts for Podcast Episodes


Okay, we’re live. Alright so I wanted
to switch things up because as you know if you’ve been following me for a while
then you know that I just did some super scary things. I did my first live webinar
and then I didn’t really give myself a chance to think about it I just kind of
bear rolled into three more so then for live webinars lately and I’ve gotta tell
you I kind of fell in love with doing these videos so that’s what I’m gonna be
doing today so hi I’m crystal prophet if you don’t know who i am i’m an author
podcaster and motivational speaker and today specifically we’re gonna be
talking about podcasting and doing it on your website
like how to add a podcast episode to your website now I do teach a course
called “Rookie podcasting”. We just closed the doors so if you’re interested you
can always join our waitlist just go to KrystalProffitt.com to find out more information but yeah one thing I tell our students is that
you don’t have to have a website you don’t you don’t have to have a website
to have a podcast however I do think it’s really cool to have a way like have
a place to send people you know I think it’s great if you can send them to your
social media account or somewhere else but I like to have a place that’s
disconnected from social media for you to connect with your listeners ask them
questions like post any information or show notes about you know any of your
guests that you have and just ways to further the experience of a podcast so
today I’m actually gonna walk you through I was just going to upload my
next week’s a podcast episode for the Ricky life podcast and I decided why
don’t I just show you how I do it so I’m gonna switch the camera around and let
you see my screen so if you have any questions just leave them in the
comments send me an email and I’m just gonna kind of go with it and then we
will see what happens from here so let me share my screen okay so you should
see this is my login so I currently use Bluehost that’s my hosting site for my
website and I use WordPress so we’re gonna log in this is so if you’ve never
used WordPress or Bluehost like this is how everything works and then my website
is crystal profit com I’m gonna log in and I’m gonna show you how I create a
new post so I’m gonna go over here to post and if you’re not familiar with
WordPress I know I wasn’t when I first started messing around blogging so
if all this looks like a foreign language to you then just bear with me
because we’re just gonna go to add a new post so if you’re a blogger or your
podcaster this is how you can add a new post so for me this is episode 33 and
what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna come over here so I have a theme so this is
something you should know I hang on I feel like I need to switch and come back
around so let’s talk about this real fast so I have a theme within
WordPress that allows me to drag and drop everything and create things that
are different from other versions of WordPress if that makes sense so I
signed up for Bluehost then I connected my Bluehost in my
WordPress account but I also additionally purchased a theme for my
website so it’s kind like the pretty like the outside like
how do you want your website to look do you want it to look like a blogging
account or do you want it to look like this musician has it they give you all
the tools that are pre-formatted and then you can just include your pictures
your content all of your information into the layout that they’ve already
chosen so if this looks any different than what you’ve previously seen that’s
why because this is just part of the theme that I have so let me go back to
sharing my screen I just wanted to explain that real fast
okay so I am going to add a widget right here you don’t know what a which it is
these are all the additional things that you can do outside of text or anything
else that you can do on your website and I’m going to do some custom HTML okay
this is where I’m going to stop and I’m gonna go to my hosting site for my
podcast this is bus frotcom this is the episode that’s gonna be
published next week I already have it scheduled here so what I’m gonna do is
I’m going to embed this episode and I’m gonna embed this one and only episode I
copied that code right there and I’m gonna come over here
and I’m gonna paste it okay so I’m gonna click done I’m gonna click Save and one
other thing I want to do real fast is I always change the permalink over here
and I I’m actually not gonna do it there I’m gonna do it down here at the bottom
I this is just some of the formatting things that I do before I upload an
episode I put in my picture let’s see these are all the pictures that I’ve
shared on my website and then I set my feature image and then I come down here
and then all of this is my SEO information and within here I am
going to change my slug to be episode 33 this is how I format everything whenever
when I say hey you can go to Crystal prophet calm / episode 33 and that’s
where this episode is going to live I also in Ricky podcasting I encourage my
students to write really awesome descriptions in their buzzsprout
profiles and this is another reason why because within your SEO you can actually
just take all of this and I copy it this is the description that will show up in
iTunes and all the places people listen to my podcast I can plug that directly
into my SEO this orange line means it’s too long it’s not going to it’s not
going to show up in a Google search or anything like that so what I do is I
will delete right here and then we’ll say today’s guest is joining us all the
way it’s joining us from Germany oops I mean capital I set up so look I have an
SEO meta description that’s gonna make Google happy right there
my readability analysis is not gonna be good this is like all the SEO like we
don’t even have time for that right we’re not gonna get into that but I am
gonna talk about overcoming trauma because that’s what the episode is about
all this other SEO stuff is not gonna be happy because it’s not a blog post it is
a podcast so I would come in here and add some text and this is going to be
the additional I’m just going to type in contact information for the sake of this
because I don’t have her contact information ready to upload but I’m
gonna save it I’m gonna click preview and it’s where
okay sometimes it’s really quick sometimes it’s not so much okay so here
is my featured image here’s my sidebar with all my stuff and then there is my
podcast episode right there with all the stuff oh hang on I got a pop-up
what kind of Ricky are you but this is everything that you see within
buzzsprout you see all that like all this like y’all this is this episode is
so good that’s where it ends all this episode is so good so it’s all
right here so I just wanted to go through like real fast
and I’m going to close out of this and then I’m gonna come over here and I’m
going to schedule this so I am gonna go back and make changes because I do need
to put in her contact information because that’s what I like to share
about our guests but I’m going to schedule it for next Tuesday which is
when my podcast comes out and I will just go ahead and click schedule yes I’m
ready to schedule and then I’ll come back over here and click view post and
see what the final one looks like and that’s it everything looks good it says
turn on builder this and like this information up here that’s part of again
my theme and how everything works oh there’s that pop-up again
so but yeah I mean that’s that’s basically it and you can just play off
its gonna let me play it’s gonna let me play ya know know if y’all can hear that
my speakers are they’re not really connected but I can just play my podcast
episode right from there so I hope that that answered your questions maybe that
left you with more questions about SEO and the different things that come along
with having a website and blogging I’ll be really honest I don’t think that SEO
matters as much for content like this only because it’s not heavily text like
there’s not a ton of text right there you have a blog post it has like 2,000
words like yeah that’s gonna be very critical to SEO but for me I’m just
sending people here like hey you want to hear this one episode and you you know
you’re not connected on iTunes or you just want to find out more about Jeanine
and like that here’s where to go this is where I’m pointing people to let them
know hey you can go here so that’s just a quick video and I wanted to show
you that that’s how I do it and I hope that you learn something let me know if
you have any questions and I will chat with y’all later bye
