Things I Wished I’d Known Before I Started Podcasting

Connie Ragen Green — What to Know Before You Start Podcasting

Podcasting is both the easiest thing in the world to do, and somehow also one of the most difficult. It’s easy because you can turn on a recording and talk — most anyone can do that. But it’s also hard because if you don’t know what you’re doing, your audience will consist of you, your dog and that’s about it. I’m going to share with you the 17 things that will make a difference and what to know before you start podcasting.

Before I go any further, I’ll share that my current podcast — Praestabilis: Excellence in Marketing is available on Amazon Music and also on Audible at no cost if you’d like to have a listen. This is my third podcast series, so I know a thing or two about what I’m sharing with you here.

The very best time to know what you’re doing in terms of creating a successful, highly popular podcast is long before you make your first recording. But for most podcasters, it’s a hard slog of trial and error, experimentation and wasted time while they learn the hard way just what works and what does not.

Fortunately for you, I’ve assembled some of the very best podcasting advice here for you to use in setting up your next podcast.
