First things first

The first but most overlooked step is to make a list of names that you would like to name your podcast. Once your list is made, search your podcast name on Google and podcast platforms. If there’s even one other show with that name, think seriously about changing it. Not only will duplicating another show’s name make it difficult to find your show, but it could get you into hot water legally. 

How to Start a Podcast: 9 Steps to Follow

Starting a podcast can be an exciting and rewarding endeavor. Here's a comprehensive podcast launch checklist to help you start on the right foot. Follow these steps to ensure a smooth and successful podcast launch. You can also use a workbook that has all this information and more included and workbook sheets to organize everything for you.

Step 1: Define Podcast Concept and Audience

Before diving into the technical aspects of podcasting, it's important to clearly understand your podcast concept and target audience. Determine your podcast's topic or theme and identify your ideal listeners.

Step 4: Record and Edit Your Episodes

Start recording your podcast episodes using your chosen recording software. Edit your recordings to remove any mistakes, pauses, or background noise. Add intro and outro music, and consider enhancing your episodes with sound effects or interviews.

Step 7: Submit Your Podcast to Directories

Submit your podcast to popular directories such as Apple, Spotify, Google, and Stitcher. Follow the submission guidelines for each platform and optimize your podcast metadata to improve discoverability.

Step 2: Plan Your Episodes

Create a content plan for your podcast episodes. Outline the topics you want to cover and decide on the format and length of each episode. Consider creating a bank of episodes to have a buffer before launching.


Step 5: Choose a Podcast Hosting Platform

Select a podcast hosting platform to store and distribute your podcast episodes. Popular hosting platforms include Libsyn, Buzzsprout, and Podbean. Ensure your hosting platform generates an RSS feed for your podcast.

Step 8: Launch and Promote Your Podcast

Once your podcast is live, announce the launch on your website, social media platforms, and email newsletters. Encourage your friends, family, and fans to listen and share your podcast. Consider collaborating with other podcasters or running promotional campaigns to increase exposure.

Step 3: Set Up Your Recording Equipment

Invest in quality recording equipment to ensure professional-sounding audio. This typically includes a microphone, headphones, and a pop filter. Set up your recording space in a quiet environment to minimize background noise.

Step 6: Create Podcast Artwork and Description

Design eye-catching artwork for your podcast cover image. It should visually represent your podcast and attract potential listeners. Craft a compelling podcast description that accurately describes your show and entices people to listen.

Step 9: Engage with Your Audience

Engage with your listeners by encouraging feedback and responding to comments and messages. Consider creating a website or social media accounts dedicated to your podcast to foster a community and keep your audience updated.
