        According to research in 2014, there are over 150,000 podcasts in the world. Podcasting is a medium that grows around 30% year on year, with podcast directory Stitcher hosting 40,000+ podcasts alone. That seems like an awful lot, but the subject matter is extremely diverse and anyone with a specific enough niche has an equal chance to stand out.

        Back in 2013, iTunes announced it had hit 1 billion podcast subscribers and way back in 2011, Libsyn hosted over 10,000 shows, with over 1.6 billion downloads from 18 million monthly audience members.

        The growth seen by podcast hosting services since Apple popularized the podcast in 2005 is nba吧very significant for businessesnba吧.

        By now you probably get the idea: podcasting is a very big deal, and if you're not tapping into it you're missing out on a big chunk of your potential audience. Let's get underway and take a closer look.

        The more consistent information and marketing material about your business is out there for people to see, the more solid your brand will be. This includes your website, your email campaigns, your advertisements, your logo, your slogan and now, your podcast. 

        The more exposure your target audience has to your brand, the more successful you're going to be, so don't overlook the importance of adding an extra layer of branding to the mix in the form of a podcast. A podcast is your chance to tell people what you're all about and connect with them on a personal level, building trust, giving information, maybe making them laugh. 

        Having something to listen to on a regular basis creates loyalty, where the customer will keep coming back and listening intently to what you have to say. If you're starting out with just a podcast then you can leverage your initial audience to create something bigger in the future.

        Gaming podcast The Angry Chicken gets all of its funding via Patreon, a site that allows listeners to pledge money monthly, creating a monthly wage for the podcasters. When the milestone of $5,000 per month is met, the podcast promises to branch out and run its own events; when $20,000 is met, the podcasters will be able to quit their jobs and work full time podcasting, meaning daily content for the fans.

        Preparing talking points and notes for your podcast should be just as simple as reading about things you love.

        nba吧

        You can nba吧find similar podcastsnba吧 to yours by searching by genre through iTunes or the categories on Stitcher. This can really help for some inspiration; think about how your favorite podcasts are nba吧structurednba吧, the tone and the style of content delivery are probably part of the reason you like the podcast in the first place. What's good about it?

        It's because they need time to nba吧validatenba吧 their nba吧factsnba吧 andnba吧 write an episode worth listening tonba吧. While some podcasters get a huge amount of listeners just rambling on their way to work, your target audience probably listens to you for information on a particular niche, not just thoughts off the top of your head.

        Don't disappoint them; nba吧learn and share your knowledge with othersnba吧.

        nba吧

        If you're using a nba吧USBnba吧 microphone, the process is simple. nba吧Check the mic is feeding a signalnba吧 into your software and you're good to go.

        If you're using a traditional nba吧XLR / audio interfacenba吧 nba吧setupnba吧, you will have far more to check before you can get to work. Check the nba吧interface is powered onnba吧 and it has an nba吧input and outputnba吧. Check nba吧phantom powernba吧 is on if you need it.

        There's no point in recording anything if thenba吧 levels in your headphonesnba吧 are not set up correctly, so you now need to nba吧checknba吧 them.

        Make sure you can nba吧hear yourself (and your guests) clearlynba吧. If you're picking up any nba吧unwanted soundsnba吧 in your headphones, know that itnba吧 will also be audible in the final cutnba吧.

        Giving a nba吧recordingnba吧 nba吧headroomnba吧 is the practice of nba吧recording at a lower level than intended playback volumenba吧. Keeping all recordings at a safe nba吧-8db on the input channelnba吧 should be a foolproof way of ending up with an undistorted podcast.

        Combining headroom and compression should result in a consistent recording that comes across loud and clear.

        After the recording process is done, it's good practice to nba吧save everything to Google Drive or nba吧nba吧Dropboxnba吧 so you have access to it on any computer you use, or to make a copy of the files on an external hard drive/USB stick.

        Audacity makes this incredibly easy, as shown in this video tutorial.

        nba吧

        To make things uniform and professional it is a good idea to nba吧set up a template for your intro and outronba吧. An Audacity project with the faded in sections of audio at the start and end is very useful for this; all you have to do after you've finished recording is put the spoken segment in between.
