Do You Want To Start Your Own Podcast?
Have you ever thought about starting your own podcast or online radio show, but didn’t know where to begin? If so, I’m getting ready to launch a new eBook that can help. It’s called the DIY Podcast Guide and it will available in mid-July 2015 ; you can order it from this page when it’s ready/live, so please check back.
Before the guide goes public, I wanted to share few exclusive offers with my community, including 1-on-1 podcast coaching and building a customized website for your new podcast if that’s something you potentially need as you start your podcasting journey. See below for more information/pricing or email me via here if you’re ready to start.
About The DIY Podcast Guide:
In this detailed, yet easy-to-use guide, veteran radio host and podcaster Gregory Berg (Life on Purpose, Radio Enso, KPNT-FM) guides you through the various steps needed to create your own podcast, including
-Choosing a topic, scope, name, and frequency;
-Evaluating, then determining which format works best for you;
-Assembling all the tools you’ll need to get started;
-Setting up and recording your first interview;
-Getting your show launched and connecting to iTunes; and
-Promoting your show.
In addition to my extensive background in broadcasting, I’ve created successful podcasts on both a network (BlogTalkRadio) and a self-hosted platform (WordPress using Libsyn and Powerpress). This step-by-step guide will help you determine the best option for you, then create and launch your own show!
The content in the DIY Podcast Guide was originally created for an online course, so it’s set up with five major “Milestones”, each of which contain individual steps that must be completed before you move on the next Milestone. I’ve included a checklist for you to print out and use as you track your progress. The Milestones are:
- Milestone 1: Establish your Show’s Parameters
- Milestone 2: Choose the Best Format for You
- Milestone 3: Schedule a Guest and Connect Your Show
- Milestone 4: Prep for and Record Your Show
- Milestone 5: Promote Your Show
To assist you throughout the process, there are quite a few links to various products I recommend (most of which I use or have used myself) and other resources that will help you on your podcasting journey. Since some links/information will change over time, I’ll be offering periodic updates here that will be free to anyone to purchases this product.
My current show Life on Purpose was featured in iTunes’ New & Noteworthy listings upon its launch in January/February 2015, reaching #2 in its category at one point. Prior to this venture, I was the producer/host of the acclaimed Radio Enso, which aired nearly 150 in-depth conversations from 2011-2014 and also has a five-star rating on iTunes.
Through the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to interview an amazing array of inspirational people from around the world — creatives, academics, and visionaries like Brene Brown, Dr. Bernie Siegel, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jennifer Louden, Jonathan Fields, Danielle LaPorte, Chris Guillebeau, Susan Piver, Chris Brogan and MANY more.
