I got quite of bit of you that reached out after watching the replay about how to start your own show or you have a show and it’s not doing what you want it to do for your business, so I decided to keep the conversation going and really dive into what I would tell a client that is thinking about getting started and why I think you should add podcasting to your content strategy.

How do you get started?
You need hosting for your show
Podcasts are syndicated across popular platforms like Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify, Amazon Music, Pandora, iHeart Radio etc… in order to show up to these places you need a hosting provider. I like to host my shows directly on my WordPress website using a tool called Bluburry (you can get access to your own Blubrry podcasting account here or if you visit the site use the code “kaewshow” to get your first month free) because it allows me to publish my show and my blog all in one spot and handles my heavy lifting for me. With a little preparation, I can have my show up and out to the world within a matter of minutes and will have fulfilled a couple of content creation objectives in one swoop.
I’ll be demonstrating how to get this done in more detail in the Kae Club, don’t forget you can sign up here —>>> https://learn.kaewhitaker.com/products/communities/the-kae-club
