You wouldn't believe how many people would like to start a podcast but absolutely don't know how. Of those people, the ones who actually get to the point of hitting 'Publish' have no idea how they got there.
Me, for example. I started podcasting in 2010 after discovering The Nerdist Podcast, the Giant Bombcast, and the Gamers with Jobs Podcast. I was in grad school at the time, and I suddenly decided I wanted to do it.
I had no idea what I was doing, so I made A LOT of mistakes. Lots and lots and lots of mistakes.
I think that's why I'm qualified to talk about how to launch a successful podcast. Listen to this podcast episode, and you will be guaranteed to avoid the major pitfalls people fall into when trying to start their own show.
If you want to start a successful, rewarding, and ultimately enjoyable podcast, give this episode a listen. We have five kick-ass tips for the beginner podcaster -- or those looking to refine your podcasting process.
I'm joined this week by Jeremy, the host of one of my very favorite shows, Lopez Radio. He's a great guy, and he actually was the person to give me a swift kick in the ass about getting the right equipment for podcasting.
For this episode, I leaned heavily on the work of John Lee Dumas, who is the host of the DAILY Entrepreneur on Fire Podcast, as well as the author of several books on the subject, including Podcast Launch: How to Create, Grow, & Monetize Your Podcast. Visit him online at @JohnLeeDumas on Twitter.
