    Creating your podcast website

    Creating your podcast website

    Should you have a website up and running when your podcast launches?
    Well, I have two different opinions on this.
    Yes, it's great to have a website up and running when you podcast launches. Even if it's just a simple landing page, that's OK! You can always improve your website over time. No, it's not absolutely necessary, so if launching a website alongside your podcast is holding you back from getting started, then push it to the back burner and focus on getting your podcast live! Your website can follow. Here are some examples of different types of podcast website options. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect!
    LinkTree: https://linktr.ee/katelerickson
    Leverage tools your hosting site offers (like Libsyn): https://katestake.libsyn.com/
    Nicole and Kate Can Relate website (built on Transistor): https://www.canrelatepodcast.com/
    Entrepreneurs On Fire website: https://www.eofire.com
    Finally, I cover the 5 things I believe every podcast website needs once it's up and firing on all cylinders.
