The language that people use when they describe listening to my podcast is as if I was there speaking to them in person: I’ve also since started a few other podcasts too, like Ask Pat, Food Truckr School, and The 1-Day Business Breakthrough Podcast with co-host, Chris Ducker. I get emails every single day from listeners who have taken action and are seeing results because of the podcast.
Starting a podcast has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. In this complete tutorial, you’re going to learn, step-by-step, how to start a podcast.
Thank you to the thousands of people who have emailed me and also those who have let me know in person that this is the very tutorial that helped you get started.
That’s why I do what I do, and so let’s get right to it…
Since starting The Smart Passive Income Podcast in July of 2010: Most importantly, the podcast has enabled me to build a stronger relationship with my audience – much stronger than I could ever do with just my blog alone.
The tutorial that you’re reading today was not created to “out do” any of the other podcasting tutorials out there.
Cliff’s is fantastic, and there are several others too (I actually asked Cliff permission to publish this post and he was more than supportive about it. ), but I know I have a particular style of teaching that resonates with a lot of my audience, and so here is my version of how to start a podcast. Podcasting is fun and exciting, but there is one thing you must do before you start podcasting: Commit.
You must internally commit to podcasting, as you must do with anything that is potentially beneficial but takes some time and effort to do.
You can read this announcement post and listen to a short test recording I did. I find it That was in December of 2008, but I didn’t publish my first podcast episode until July of 2010! Podcasting was brand new to me, relatively technical, and I just didn’t know where to begin.
After trying to figure it out on my own, I gave up and put it aside until I got some help a year later from two dear friends of mine: Jason Van Orden from Internet Business Mastery and Cliff Ravenscraft from Podcast Answer Man.
Both Jason and Cliff inspired and personally helped me setup my podcast. Since I became interested in podcasting, a lot of great “how-to podcast” tutorials have popped up on the Internet that I wish were around when I first started.
The best one I’ve seen, by far, is from Cliff Ravenscraft over at Learn Howto
