Podcasting is a great medium. I’m a big fan of podcasts and appreciate the time and effort that goes into not only producing a quality show, but doing it consistently over a period of time.
Many podcasters sell themselves short. They don’t realize all the details that are involved with producing a show. The topic or subject matter of your show may be one of the easiest decisions to make. While the show’s content reigns supreme, other details to consider include…
- domain name
- web host
- audio file/mp3 hosting
- gear and equipment
- marketing via
- social media
- online/print ads
- listener engagement/community
- album art/logo
- podcast directories
- google play music
- audio – bumpers, intros and outros
The above doesn’t encompass everything, but the list is certainly a starting point to achieving a well-produced podcast. To someone that simply wants to hit record and convey their message, it can be a bit overwhelming. Litter Box Studio is not only setup to showcase the shows I produce, but to help others with theirs.
There are plenty of resources for an aspiring podcaster, and with those resources there will be differing opinions on how some of the listed details should be addressed. Here at LitterBoxStudio.com we will outline how we do our shows and why. We want you to learn from your mistakes!
My name is Sean Kelley and Litter Box Studio is a venture of mine. I have produced 3 shows, each with varying degrees of success. I live in Madison, Wisconsin, with my wife, dog and four cats.
