I recently started The Paid Search Podcast with my friend Chris. And after deciding to start the podcast, we actually had to figure out how to start the podcast and get it up and running. If you Google “how to start a podcast” you’ll find a handful of really detailed and knowledgable blog articles about how you can go about starting a podcast. But what I noticed is that a lot of those article were from a few years ago, and while those articles were helpful and super detailed, their instructions were pretty long and there were a lot of technical stuff you had to know like using WordPress plugins, creating podcast feeds, and on and on. I know that technology is always changing and seems to get easier and more convent, and since these podcast guides were a few years old, I kept thinking there has to be a better way!
Well, there is a better way, and it’s called Buzzsprout.
Basically Buzzsprout makes podcasting easy to set up and manage and you don’t have to have any technical knowledge of the podcasting space to make it work.
I was so impressed by Buzzsprout that I figured I’d make this super simple how to start a podcast guide for my clients who are considering starting a podcast and for anyone else out there who wants a simple guide on how to start a podcast.
Here’s the podcast I started, you can listen to some of the episodes below courtesy of this free player that Buzzsprout provides to their customers. The podcast guide is below this player, enjoy!
