There's a ton of bad advice and B.S. surrounding podcasting.
That's why I thought it would be fun to ring in the new year by tearing apart the lies guroobs keep telling you about podcasting so you can decide if this is the year for you to jump in.
Over the next few days I'm going to bust some popular podcasting myths.
Today we'll bust the nerdiest myth of them all.
And I'm prolly going to make some enemies in the podcasting space when I share this with you.
Myth #1: You need to be “techy” to have a podcast
When most people think about starting their podcast they worry about things like:
- How long should my show be?
- What equipment should I use?
- What is a good format?
- How do I get the best sound?
Then they turn to podcasting courses to find the answers. They end up neck deep in training videos that are more about audio engineering than sharing their ideas with the world. All of a sudden podcasting begins to look like a whole lot of work that you don't want to do.
So you decide to put it off until you have more time to learn everything you need to know.
Meanwhile more of your competitors keep jumping into podcasting and collecting the leads and sales that should be yours.
You’re better off keeping things simple so you can focus on connecting with your listeners without worrying about all the tech stuff.
Would you believe that one of my clients who has racked up 109,133 downloads over the last year records his show from the white headphones that came with his iPhone?
The simpler you make it, the easier it is to get going and start connecting with people who want what you have.
That's one of our clients favorite things about working with me and the gang at The Podcast Factory.
We call it our “EZ Podcast Promise” – we make podcasting easy so you can come in, do what you do, and get out without any headaches or worries.
Next week I'm opening up applications to our “Done For You” podcasting service that takes all the heavy lifting of having your own podcast show off your back and places it squarely on the back of my exepreinced team.
But I only have two spots available.
To be the first to know when these spots open up, get on our early notice list at https://thepodcastfactory.com/difm
In my next note I'll share Myth #2 which will definitely get me banned from the “Podcaster's Table” at the next marketing event because it's the biggest universal lie every podcasting coach and teacher need you to believe in order to make their living.
See you then,
