7 tips for those looking to start a podcast…

1. Choose a Topic You’re Passionate About

Before you hit record, it’s a good idea to give serious thought to why you’re starting this podcast in the first place. And don’t take this step lightly! Starting a podcast takes a lot of hard work (maybe more than you think). Not everybody is cut out for it. But we’ll assume that you are.

A good starting point is to figure out which topic you can talk about naturally and endlessly. Your true passion. We all have one. What’s yours? A good measure is to do a test show with no notes or preparation whatsoever. Can you fill 30 to 60 minutes just talking about your topic off the top of your head and make it interesting? Good! You found your topic.

Now, search iTunes for other podcasts in your niche. Did you choose a crowded niche with many existing podcasts? Try to think of ways to differentiate your show from theirs. For example, you can choose a sub-niche with a more targeted audience.

2. Brand Your Podcast

Now that you’ve chosen your topic, it’s time to start crafting your podcast. Just like creating products or services, your podcast is its own brand. Branding your podcast starts with choosing a good name.

Pick something that is both memorable and speaks to your topic/audience. It’s my opinion that direct, descriptive names work better than abstract or overly creative names. Before you can hook your audience with your killer smile and groundbreaking content, you’ll need them to tune in. That’s why your podcast name needs to jump out and grab them. Remember that much of your audience will be discovering your podcast via iTunes or Google search. So it’s a good idea to include a keyword or two within your show’s name.

Next, you’ll need a logo. For a podcast, it’s important to come up with an attention grabbing logo and a show image for your iTunes listing. Again, it’s about crafting your brand to stand out in iTunes podcast search results.

3. Format and Structure

Will this be an audio or video podcast? It’s my belief that video podcasts have an easier time gaining traction with an audience simply because they are more personal. Aside from offering valuable content, you’re selling your personality, and video is the most effective and authentic way to do that. It’s a good idea to offer an audio-only version of the podcast for those who prefer to listen and don’t want to download bulky video files.

Now we need to structure the show. Let’s start with your schedule. Once a week? Once a month? Whatever schedule you choose, be sure to keep it consistent. A quick way to lose audience members is to release a show four weeks in a row, then go on hiatus for several months. People appreciate a regular schedule, and even a regular day of the week.

Finally, you need to choose your show length. Break it down into segments and allot a certain amount of time to each segment. I believe 30 to 50 minutes is a good length for an episode as it’s long enough to pack in quality, in-depth conversation, and short enough to fit within the typical work commute. Some prefer quick episodes of under 20 minutes each. Again, consistency is key. You don’t want to set your audience’s expectation for 45 minute episodes, then do a 15 minute episode.

4. Plan Your Content

Now it’s time to map out the most important aspect of your podcast, the content. Podcasts are no exception to the adage “content is king.” Your topics, conversation flow, personality, and overall engagement are what will ultimately determine the success of your podcast.

It’s a good idea to keep a running list of show topics. As soon as an idea strikes, note it down and plan it for an upcoming show. One way my co-host Dave and I come up with topics is to simply recognise when we stumble upon a great topic for a show. We’ll be having a spontaneous chat, talking shop about freelancing and web design, when suddenly it’s apparent we’ve hit on something interesting and relevant for the show. Write it down.

Some podcasts break each episode into segments. If your niche is somehow tied to current events, it may be a good idea to cover news topics as part of your show. Perhaps a guest interview is a main component in your format. Plan for each of these segments and keep in mind the timing and flow of each.

Finally, it’s beneficial to think about some kind of script for your show. This will be different for everyone. My preference is to have a few sentences written out beforehand to use as the introduction to the show; something to get it off to a strong start and introduce the topic and guest properly. The rest of the show’s topics are planned using short bullet lists indicating which points I want to hit on.

The idea is to make sure I’m covering what I want to cover, while keeping the delivery natural and somewhat improvised. Again, it’s up to you to find the right balance.

5. Record, Broadcast, and Edit Your Podcast

Now on to some of the technical aspects for creating a video podcast. Surprisingly, there are quite a few tools needed to piece together a working podcast. Here are the ones we use:

Blue Yeti USB Condensor Microphone— I strongly recommend investing in a quality microphone. It will drastically improve the audio quality of your show. The Yeti USB mic is reasonably priced and it delivers great sound.

Skype — All of our shows start with a Skype video chat. Now that Skype 5 includes the ability to have video conference calls, it’s a perfect choice for having a three-way conversation. Plus, the sheer popularity of Skype makes it easy on our guests who are already comfortable using the platform for online conversation.

ScreenFlow — This is a great app for recording and editing screencasts. It’s easy to use and packs in powerful editing features.

Blip.tv — With the finished recording edited and exported, it’s time to put it up on the web and submit it to the iTunes podcast directory. Luckily, Blip.tv makes all of this very easy. Plus it’s got great reporting tools to check the popularity and reach of your podcast.

BoinxTV — BoinxTV serves as our virtual control room, allowing us to produce a live web broadcast for our show. It has features to allow for quick switching between cameras and screens and other visual effects like captions and transitions.

Justin.tv or UStream — Both are viable options for when you want to broadcast live on the web. We feed our output from BoinxTV into one of these services to fire up the live show. We then embed the video and chat room right on our website for the audience to participate live.

CamTwist — This little utility allows us to route the video feed between BoinxTV and Justin.tv or UStream.

Audio Hijack Pro — This fun little app is used to route the audio from Skype into BoinxTV. Be sure to check out the psychedelic sound effects you can apply in the process!

Skype Call Recorder — This plugin for Skype adds functionality to let you record a Skype call. This can be useful if you’re only interested in making a recorded podcast (not broadcasting live). Plus, it comes packaged with handy utilities for splitting a conversation into individual movie files, and stripping an MP3 audio file from your movie file.

6. Grow Your Audience

With your podcast created and released to the world, now comes the hard part: promoting your podcast and growing your audience.

I’m a believer that if you focus your efforts on creating the most interesting and engaging content possible, you will naturally attract an audience and grow a community around your work. But there are a few things you can do to help move things forward:

  • Have a solid website. Something professional, clean and simple. The focus is your podcast, so let the design of your site support that. I recommend going with a quality, premium WordPress theme to get up and running quickly.

  • Build community around your podcast. Encourage your audience to participate in your live chat (if you have one). Ask for feedback, conduct surveys and polls, keep a close eye on your podcast’s analytics (via blip.tv). Know which topics garner the most interest from your audience and let your audience help shape the direction of your podcast.

  • Sharing is great. Ratings are better. As with any web content, social media integration is a must for your podcast to help your audience spread the word faster. If your podcast is largely distributed via iTunes, you’ll want to encourage subscribers to rate and review your podcast to help boost its standing within the iTunes directory. This is one of the best ways for your audience to help you get discovered.

7. Monetise Your Podcast

Just like starting a blog, starting a podcast should be about quality, authentic content first and monetization second. You can’t have the latter without the former. That said, there are several methods to monetize your podcast which are worth considering:

  • Try to sell advertising placements on your show. Just like advertising on a blog, this requires a significant audience in order to bring in real revenue. It also runs the risk of turning off your audience who may not want to hear plugs in between quality content.

  • A more viable approach, and one that may be more lucrative, is to simply build your personal brand using your podcast as the medium. Hosting a podcast — particularly a video podcast — is a great way share your personality and let your ideas shine. Today’s wisdom dictates that promoting your personal brand can translate into building a prosperous business. Just watch any video by Gary Vaynerchuk and I think you’ll agree.

Have Fun!

I hope you find this guide helpful as you plan your video podcast. No matter what niche you’re in — live or recorded, video or audio — the key is to have fun with it and let your passion for the topic shine through. Now press record and start podcasting!

7 Poems in 7 Days – #Coronavirus #Lockdown – #CoronavirusPoems | #MikeArmstrongPoems

Hello Readers,

Please find my #7PoemsIn7Days #Coronavirus #Lockdown #Poetry Collection. I haven’t written any poetry since I was a kid (now 42) but I was inspired to write a Coronavirus Poem on Sunday 12/4/20 and decided to write one a day for the next 7 days.

#MikeArmstrongPoems – Number 1 – 12/4/20

Coronavirus Poem – Kick Corona’s Ass #KickCoronasAss

So Coronavirus is here, it’s made us all Lockdown.

Lots of us are unhappy, it’s even made us frown!

But as the storm clouds linger, a new dawn is awaiting.

A time for fun and laughter and no more self isolating.

Let’s cheer on all the NHS and others on the front line.

Lets clap and cheer on Thursday evenings and show them all a good time.

When Entrepreneurs pull together they can get a lot achieved.

Making Ventilators, Facemasks and lots of PPE.

So now’s a time to stay positive, and don’t let Covid Win,

Let’s stop the virus spreading, it’s time to all stay in.

Don’t get down for too long, as storms will always pass.

Keep motivated and positive and let’s kick Corona’s Ass.

An Entrepreneur Poem – How to make a Diamond #HowtomakeaDiamond

#Howtomakeadiamond

Diamonds are shaped in the Earth’s mantle, they take billions of years to form,

They start off as basic carbon, but under pressure they learn to perform,


Alone they would stay as Carbon, but by bonding they crystalise…

They take a transformation right before our very eyes.


So if you want to stay as Carbon, keep pressure far away,

Stay comfortable and relaxed, don’t try changing every day!


But if you want to sparkle, be coveted or desired!

Get busy all day building, work hard until your tired!


When you learn to adapt and change and handle all the pressure!

You’ll learn to bond with others and life will become much better.


So don’t delay but start today and build your pressure fund,

It won’t be long until your strong, a high class, solid diamond 💎

The Upside of Coronavirus- #CoronavirusUpside

After weeks in total Lockdown, we’ve had plenty of time to reflect…

On all our real values, and what we can affect.


Lots of things in life are outside of our control!

But staying connected with loved ones, has to be our goal.


When the going gets tough, the tough get going,

we need to thank our front line staff, by ways that keep on showing.


We can get through any crisis when we stand strong together,

It not just now that we’ve proved that, it’s been like that forever!


So use this time to reconnect with all the people you did forget.

Learn lots of new things and have some fun, take your hours exercise and get out in the sun.


It won’t be long until Lockdown’s over and normal will return.

But hopefully much better now, with what we did all learn!

Coronavirus Business Poem #CoronavirusBusinessPoem

As a business forced to isolate, being under Lockdown isn’t great.


We’ve been forced to furlough staff and close down the shutter.

“This isn’t fair”, we quite rightly mutter.


However we have to stop the spread of this disease,

Or it will rip through our population with so much ease!


How long we’re shut for, no one does know,

So we keep preparing until it’s time to grow!


If we can adapt to home delivery and the Internet,

we can keep on trading and that’s a safe bet.


But if not, we’ll keep on Marketing & building friends,

Preparing our business for when this all ends!


So whatever the case we’ll continue to stay strong,

and get through this Lockdown – no matter how long!

The Lockdown Choice – A Coronavirus Poem #LockdownChoice

When in Lockdown over Coronavirus,

we need to search down deep inside us.


We need to decide to live in so much fear,

Or learn to let that fear disappear!


Those in fear will panic and moan,

over eat, stay unhealthy and stay stuck all alone.


Whilst those that are optimistic, happy & positive,

will learn new things, stay healthy and choose to still live.


You can’t manage things beyond your control,

But you can choose your response, so make positive your goal!


Avoid negative people and negative press,

And anything else that will add to your stress.


Be thankful for the extra time and leisure,

And for doing more things that gives you some pleasure.


The Lockdown won’t last for too long,

Then life will continue, the show will go on.


Hopefully you will heed my advice,

Decide to enjoy Lockdown and make it quite nice.

How to Navigate the Wall! #HowToNavigateTheWall

If you can’t get around the wall, don’t get upset and quit,

Stay Strong and in Control.

Work on a way that will fit!


If you can’t get around the Wall, try to get over the Wall,

Don’t let nothing stop you,

not even if you were to fall.


If you can‘t get over the Wall, don’t quit because of your fall,

Just pick yourself up and stand tall.

You will learn to get over the Wall!


When trying to learn how to get over the Wall.

Gain new tricks, you can do it, don’t stall.


Use your skills, don’t give up, try them all!

Be determined to defeat that Wall,


Go under the wall if you can,

Just don’t give up, be a Man!

If that doesn’t work, then don’t be a jerk, drive through that Wall in a Van!

The papers are full of negative news,

there’s nothing in them to keep us amused!


The media show us daily the infection rates getting higher,

But there not a lot said to give us that fire.


So choose an alternative whilst Lockdown days are so long,

give yourself lessons, and exercise yourself strong,


Do all the things you usually don’t have time to complete,

Contact family & friend but don’t over eat.


Take you hour a day exercise and take in all the views,

Get your mind motivated read #PositiveCoronavirusNews

Fight The Negativity

Everyday under Lockdown we hear about death and destruction,

But not about joy, success or construction!


The papers are full of negative news,

there’s nothing in them to keep us amused!


The media show us daily the infection rates getting higher,

But there not a lot said to give us that fire.


So choose an alternative whilst Lockdown days are so long,

give yourself lessons, and exercise yourself strong,


Do all the things you usually don’t have time to complete,

Contact family & friend but don’t over eat.


Take you hour a day exercise and take in all the views,
