Make Your Own Podcast

Make Your Own Podcast


Hi. Today, I’m going to teach you how to make
your own podcast and not only that but also how to crush it with your podcast so your
business and online success all increases. Hey, this is Luis Congdon, creator of The
Ultimate Launch Podcast Guide, Podcaster’s Secret Weapon and a host of two different
podcasts so I know a lot about podcasting and I’m excited to teach you how to create
a podcast. Now, the first that thing you’re going need
when it comes to creating a podcast is a laptop. There’s a lot of debate about what you can
use and shouldn’t use for recording your podcast. Some friends of mine use their phone. Some use handhelds. But when it comes to me and my own personal
preference and my number one recommendation is do it on a computer. It’s going to make things a lot simpler. You’re going to have a bigger screen and a
lot more control over everything that you’re doing. So one, have a computer. Don’t get too crazy with it. You don’t need to go out and buy some new
laptop. When I first started with my show, I had an
old laptop. It was 7 or 8 years old, but it worked. It did the job. So you’re going to need a laptop. Make sure to have that. Now, recording software is the second thing
you’re going to need to create a podcast. Again, you don’t have to get too crazy with
it. People get all excited. They go out and buy all this expensive stuff,
but you don’t need to do that. Use recording software. If you have a MacBook, GarageBand will do
it. If you don’t like GarageBand, check out Audacity. It works on PC, and it works on MacBook. It’s great, and I know a lot of people that
make professional music that is using Audacity. Have recording software like GarageBand or
Audacity, and if you want, you can go out, and you can buy some other software, but these
are the two that I recommend. Third, you’re going to need a decent microphone. Again, don’t get too crazy with it. You can use something like a headset that
has a little mic in it, and that will work. When I first started, that’s what I used. I know a lot of people are still using that,
and it’ll work just fine. And if you want to step it up, feel free to
click in the description, and I have a few microphones that I’ve recommended for you
like the ATR2100 or the Blue Yeti and there’s a variety of other microphones. If you’re just getting started, use something
simple. The ATR or the Blue Yeti is all under a $150. I highly recommend just use one of those. Fourth, you’re going to need podcast hosting. You’re going to need somewhere to host your
podcast. A lot of people don’t get when they go into
iTunes or other places is they’re streaming the podcast from anywhere else. What podcast hosting should I use? It’s a big debate. There’s a lot of discussion around it. I highly recommend you use PodBean. It’s my preferred resource for podcast hosting,
and from there, you’ll be all set-up, and they’ll simplify everything for you. The fifth one is something a lot of podcasters
miss out. If you don’t have it, you’re missing out big
time. What is that number five thing? It’s a website. It seems like in this day and age everybody
has a website but if you don’t have one, make sure that you have a website. Don’t podcast without it. That isn’t to say that you can’t record and
do your recordings without a website but don’t release your podcast until you have a website. So now, we’ve got into my five things you
need to create a podcast. They’re all under the description. I’ve created links for you. But I want to dive in deeper with you on how
to crush it with your podcast, how to make money and how to drive sales and drive people
to your website. I’ve been around for a while, and I’ve created
a course. I’ve created everything for you, and I’ve
created some stuff that’s pretty much free for you. Make sure to click on the description and
head on over where I’ve got some free guides, tools, and resources for you.
