Happy New Year!!! Are you ready to start a podcast? If so, today's show, "New Year New You Podcast Topic Tips" is for you. In this episode #238 of the Delaware Blogger Podcast, I give you some tips on choosing a topic for your show.
Go for the Goal
You need to be clear on why you want to make a Podcast. What is the goal of your podcast, Think about whether you need a Podcast for your main life (brand) or business objectives. Health, fitness, family, finances, retirement, education, college, vocational training, new business start up…and you need to know the pain points of your target market audience.
Caring is Sharing
Choose an idea for a podcast that you are genuinely interested or passionate about. You don’t need to be an expert in this field right now, but you need to be interested enough to spend the next few years learning more about a topic and creating content on this topic. So choose wisely. Passion will keep you motivated in moments of a slowdown.
Note: There are more than 1 million Podcasts, but over 650 million blogs. There may be less competition in podcasting, but you must consistently create high-quality content, otherwise you won’t get noticed and if you are not posting new content regularly, you will lose your relevance.
Future Monetization for Your Podcast
With the rising popularity of podcasts there is an opportunity to make money online. If you are planning to work hard on your podcasts, so think about a monetization strategy in advance which includes: Affiliate marketing / Patreon / Selling your product
What Problem Will Your Podcast Solve?
You must know your audience well. Are they male or female? What do they do? Are they college students, working professionals, or senior citizens? Are they single moms, bloggers, or entrepreneurs? Know the demographics of podcast listeners. Knowing this will help you choose a topic for a podcast that will talk about something that is a specific pain-point solution for people. Use your podcast to give answers to your audience’s questions.
Select a Niche and a Format for Your Podcast
Even if you are creating podcasts as a hobby or a business, it is not advisable to talk about too many different types of topics, for example, don’t talk about weight loss in one episode and then politics in the next. Try to have a theme or be specific with your genre or issues so that your audience is likely to come back for more. If you want to make Podcasts to spread awareness, choose a theme instead of working on a bunch of random topics every week.
Along with a niche, you should also choose a format. A Podcast is an audio media where you can experiment with several formats; it can be scripted with a solo host or an interview between two individuals, or even a free-flowing conversation within a small group of people.
Include Keywords for SEO
Your podcast will rank higher in search if the topics include keywords that users commonly search. Search Engine Optimization Strategies so that people find your podcast through search engines like Google. There are many tools where you can find highly searched keywords on your subject and use it in your topic. Try to have the main keyword for your podcast episode in the title or description.
