    Top 10 Questions Most Podcasters Get Asked

    Top 10 Questions Most Podcasters Get Asked

    As full-time podcasters, we can often forget that not everyone knows all the ins and outs of what a podcast is! There are even people out there who have never heard of a podcast, or if they did, they still can’t quite put their finger on what exactly it is.

    As a result, podcasters are often sought out to answer those simple questions like, “What is a podcast? Why is it on my phone? And how is it your full-time job?” However, many times the individuals asking the questions are simply too embarrassed to even ask and are left in the dark never to discover that incredible world of podcasting!

    10. What’s the Best Thing About Podcasting?
    The best thing about podcasting is definitely dependent on you as an individual. Some people love podcasting because of who they meet. Whether this is through interviews or by attending podcasting conferences, to them it’s all about the networking!

    For others, it is more about their audience. Being able to help others on a large scale and connect with your listeners in your community can be an incredible motivator. Plus, if it is your passion to lead and help others then this will be the key to achieving that inner self-fulfilment. Then for others, it is all about getting creative, producing something of value, and having something they can look back on and be proud of.

    A podcast can be an invaluable resource, for not only your listeners but for you the host as well. With all the lessons you learn and each of the episodes you put out it adds to a complete set of works that can eventually be turned into a book. Ultimately, the sky is your limit, the benefits are plentiful, and it is completely up to you what you take away from your overall podcasting experience!

    9. How Does Podcasting Benefit You?
    There are many benefits to starting a podcast. First off, if you are someone who loves to talk about a topic that you are passionate about, a podcast is a great platform to spread your message authentically. Podcast episodes provide your listeners with on-demand content allowing them to listen at their leisure and catch up on any episodes that they may have missed.

    Having a podcast is also a great way to promote your products and services that already exists. As you continue producing podcast episodes, so too you establish your credibility as an expert in your field. In return, listeners are much more willing to turn to your products and buy from you.

    As your podcast grows, an inevitable result is an incredibly engaged audience. Listeners love to be part of the show and engage in topics and discussions. There’s nothing quite as powerful as a strong community around your podcast, and ultimately your brand. The initial investment into growing your community might be a lot, but the reward you will get from such an engaged audience will be priceless!

    8. How Long Does it Take to Make Money Podcasting?
    Again, when or how much money your podcast makes is completely depended on you as the host and how fast your podcast grows. As your audience and podcasting community grows, it opens up opportunities to gain sponsorships for the episodes.

    Companies will pay to become sponsors of your show, and in return, they can place an add in your episodes that will gain them new customers. This works especially well when it is a company that creates products or services in line with what your podcast is about and what your listeners would be interested in learning more about.

    Often times, podcasters also start crowdfunding platforms to encourage listeners to donate money towards the show. In addition to that, you can also promote and sell your own products to listeners to create another revenue stream. Ultimately, when you make money is totally up to you and how hard you are willing to work to make your podcast profitable.

    7. Can Podcasting Be a Full-Time Job?
    Yes, podcasting most certainly can be a full-time job. As your podcast grows, so does your potential for gaining sponsors for your episodes. This

    Let’s talk about Equipment

    Smartphone and mic if your on the fly one of the best things about podcasting is FLEXIBILITY

    When I started podcasting in 2009 it was a telephone line now I have simply upgraded to a computer Audio Technia Mic USB (Link in the show notes) headphones (Any will do) a quiet space and an audio recorder (Zoom and Adobe Audition will get into that a little later)

    Recording Software, ZenCastr, Zoom, Skype.

    Start simple, learn how to use the equipment test the devices in different environments do fake interviews with friends learn how to edit, and play around with the settings in the programs.

    Show notes are short conversational descriptions of your podcast that should include some keywords when you write it for SEO purposes.

Lacks Depth

Pretty basic, not much depth or effort goes into these. Wouldn’t recommend to the next listener.
