Get Ready To Take Your Podcasting Game To The Next Level
Podcasting has taken the world by storm! It’s the new tech sensation that everyone is talking-er, listening about! And you, dear friend, are about to take your podcasting game to the next level!
Are you tired of being an average Joe podcaster? Do you want to make a name for yourself in the audio world? Then pull up a chair, grab your mic, and let’s get started.
First things first, invest in a good microphone. No, that squeaky toy you use to call your dog can’t do the trick. People want to hear your voice loud and clear, not the sound of you breathing or the awkward silence. Buy a decent microphone that can capture your voice without background noise.
Secondly, choose your niche topic. You can’t just talk about everything under the sun unless your podcast is about ‘Randomness’ or you have three hours to spare. So, find your niche topic – something that you can speak about for hours without getting bored or boring people.
Thirdly, let’s get creative. Blindly following the rules will only get you so far. Do something that sets you apart – like recording your podcast while climbing Mt. Everest! If you can commit to that, your podcast will be the talk of the town. Or, you know, take inspiration from others and interview your grandma about her questionable love advice.
Next up, build your audience. You can’t simply rely on your mom and your cat to listen to your podcast. Share it everywhere, spam your friends’ inbox, knock on your neighbor’s door, and you know what? Ask random people on the street if they would want to listen to your podcast. Don’t worry if one them pepper sprays you or run away. It’s their loss, not yours.
Now, let’s talk about exciting content. The idea is not just to babble for hours but to make your audience look forward to the next episode. If your niche is food, think of your content like an appetizer, a main course, and a dessert. Or, think of a theme and design your content for it. For instance, ‘The History of Butter’ can be a great start for a lively and learning podcast.
Don’t forget – it’s crucial to keep up with the trends. For instance, everyone and their mom is talking about NFTs right now. Take advantage of that situation, and start a podcast/discussion about how people are paying millions of dollars for art that you can’t even put up in your living room.
Bonus – color coordination. You heard me right – give your podcast a unique look! Why not chose a color scheme for your podcast and make it more visually recognizable? Let’s say you have a podcast about baseball, you can go with green and white or a combination of any baseball-related colors. The possibilities are endless!
Last but not least, here’s a secret – use humor. Don’t be afraid to add a touch of humor or some jokes in your podcast. After all, laughter is the best medicine for a boring podcast. Whether it’s a well-timed pun or a funny story to break the ice, humor is always appreciated.
Well, there you have it, folks – a foolproof guide to take your podcasting game to the next level! Just remember to be yourself, have fun, and engage with your audience. Who knows – the next time you’re shopping for groceries, someone might stop you and say “Hey! Are you the guy/girl from that awesome podcast?”
