PODCASTING 101

For most folks, the biggest hurdle to creating a podcast is knowing where to start. What equipment do I need? How do I record the audio? How do I edit it? How do I share it? There are a million questions that need answering, and doing the research needed to start a high-quality podcast can be very time consuming. I offer a one-on-one consult to help you answer those questions quickly, so you can start podcasting right away, and spend your time focusing on the content.

In just a few hours, we’ll cover:

  • Finding the right equipment

  • Recording your podcast

  • Basic audio editing

  • Podcast distribution

  • Podcast stats & marketing tips

  • & Any other questions you have

PRODUCTION

You know you want to make a podcast because you have a great idea for a show that will grow your brand, engage your audience, and position you as an expert in your field. But the production of the podcast takes too much time that you don’t have. I can help. I’m available for hire at an hourly rate to help you produce your podcast.

AUDIO ENGINEERING

I will take care of setting up the equipment, recording the episode, and monitoring volumes to ensure you end up with a professional-sounding podcast episode. All you need to worry about is the content.

Looking for a space to record? Record with me at Fool Proof Podcast Studio.

(Twin Cities area only)

Editing

Hand me your raw audio file and I’ll will turn it into a finalized episode. I can add in music, cut out awkward silences, and adjust any parts that are too loud or too soft, so you end up with a polished episode ready to share with the world.

publishing & distribution

Your podcast is ready to go. Now what? I can help you set up your podcast distribution, or even take the task of publishing off your hands entirely.

Our consultations with BKG Podcasting were essential for helping us get Peace Meal off the ground. As a business, we understood the value of breaking into the podcast market, but we didn’t have the experience necessary to get started. BKG Podcasting bridged that gap. Beth provided a hands-on demonstration (with a lot of useful tips along the way!), made recommendations for equipment to suit our needs, answered all of our technical questions, and even offered some thoughtful advice on podcast marketing. As a result, we gained the skills and confidence necessary to successfully produce a regular podcast.
