How to start your own podcast

Starting your podcast can be overwhelming at first, but Whooshkaa makes it easy!

How to start your own podcast

Launching a Podcast Show is similar to creating a website or blog; it requires three steps
  • Prelaunch
  • Launch
  • Post Launch

Prelaunch

Planning

  • Content - Are you talking about specific topics and issues, or something broader. What will be your theme, you do you want to reach?
  • Format -  Are you making a talk show, something educational or comedy skits? How long will your show be? 
  • Goals - Are you just building a following, doing it for fun, or are you using your podcast to convert visitors to paying ones? Have a clear objective on why you want to create a podcast before you start.
  • Branding - You'll need the following:
    • A snappy, memorable, and unique name
    • Cover art/logo - Sites like canva.com can be a great place to get this done
    • Intro/ outro music - Using real music can get you into legal trouble, so consider using royalty free-music or get a jingle made
    • Website - will you need one? Sites like Squarespace can be a great and easy place to get a site up and running
