A Guide to the Top Content from Resonate
March 2, 2020 | Colby Schemm
Resonate has been writing blogs about podcasting since October 2016. We’ve covered topics from pre-production and recording to editing and mixing, marketing, and monetization. Whether you’re brand new to podcasting or have been in the game for years now, we hope these blogs can be helpful to you!
In this post, I wanted to break down the best blogs our team has written, and highlight the ones we think are most important for you as you start on your podcasting journey. These blogs cover a lot of content, but they are not comprehensive. We are constantly learning and working to share what we learn with you. Please let us know if there are any topics you’d like to read more about on the Resonate blog!
Every podcast starts as an idea, a topic, a message, or a mission. Bring your idea to reality by taking the necessary steps to plan, storyboard, and write out your episode idea. Here are some blogs we’ve written on the pre-production process of podcasting!
Once you’ve worked through the pre-production process for your podcast, the next step is to buy the right equipment for your specific needs. This can be a really daunting process, especially for new podcasters, but it’s crucial to getting started. We are always developing new equipment recommendations to try to make this part of the podcasting process as simple, cost-efficient, and stress-free as possible.
Once you purchase your podcast equipment, it’s time to optimize your setup and hit record! Below are some tips on how to do just that.
Remote interviews are a wonderful way to connect with experts and influencers in your niche from all over the world. One of the most frequently asked questions we get asked at Resonate is how to remotely record a podcast, so we’ve created several guides to simplify the process.
If you want to create a successful podcast, you have to take audio quality seriously. Low-quality audio is one of the fastest ways to lose listeners. Learn how to step up the sonic quality of your show in these blogs.
These posts give you the tools to take the final master episode files of your podcast and publicly distribute them to the right channels. The process of launching a podcast requires submitting your show through a hosting platform that distributes it to most of the podcast directories. There are also some directories that require you to directly submit your podcast to go through their manual approval process. Get a heads start on distributing your podcast in these blogs.
So you’ve come up with a vision, bought the equipment, recorded your first episode(s), and published your podcast to the directories. Now it’s time to promote your podcast! There are many channels for marketing your podcast, and seemingly hundreds of strategies for each individual channel. Learn about the best strategies we’ve discovered so far for promoting your podcast in these marketing blogs.
Once you’ve planned, recorded, distributed, and promoted your podcast, you’re not done. As every creative knows it’s a lot easier to start a new project than to follow through in the long run. Keep producing your podcast, even if you don’t see an immediate ROI. Podcasting is more like a long-term investment than a lottery ticket. You have to put in a lot of work and be patient, but over the lifetime of your podcast you have the potential to impact tons of people and develop as a host.
Resonate strives to serve the larger podcast community by creating relevant lists of podcast recommendations. This also gives us the opportunity to promote podcasters who work with us if their shows are a good fit for one of our favorite lists. Find your next favorite podcast in one of these lists today!
I hope this blog has been helpful! If you follow these blogs, you should be able to understand how to make a podcast, from the big-picture concepts to the nitty-gritty technical details. But this list of content is not dead. We are constantly writing new content, learning about new developments in the industry, and trying to listen to our audience.
