What Will You Be Learning?
By the end of this series, delivered in 3 distinct parts, you'll be a published podcaster and ready, plan in hand, to smash out your first 10 episodes.
We'll cover every one of the basics, including:
- Defining your Podcast
- Setting targets to ensure your time is well spent
- Planning episodes
- Getting Your Equipment together
- Setting Up Your Recording Environment
- Publishing your Episode
- Getting Listed on the Web
- Your first two months of promotion
How Does this Work?
There are 15 Lessons in this series, all of which take a short time to complete. You're free to go through it as slowly or as quickly as you like, but I'd recommend 1 lesson per day.
Keeping to that schedule means that it's achievable, it's structured and it's effective. Everyone can find half an hour per day, somehow, and it you commit to doing it every day then you'll make fast progress. After 15 days you'll find you're suddenly a published podcaster!
What's the Format?
We'll be using a variety of formats, including text content like this, video tutorials and quizzes.
We offer all of the videos in text format, too, because we know that people like to learn in different ways. So, no need to always consume everything. If you like the videos, then watch them. If you prefer reading, then follow the transcripts and the quizzes. It's up to you.
Ok, enough admin, let's get going!
