The Dynamics Of A Podcast

March 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 129

Do you know how to make a podcast? If not, then you should know that making a podcast is as simple as pie. To make a podcast, you will find that you don't need a lot of materials or technical know-how to produce your very first podcast. It's very simple and easy to do, and it's what I want to show you how to do in today's lesson.

Now honestly, to get started with your own podcast, you will need a microphone. This can either be inherently built into your computer or laptop, or you can go to a tech store and buy yourself a microphone. No matter what option you do, you will want to make sure that you have a recording medium in place that will allow you to record clearly for your podcast.

Now honestly, sometimes when you want to create a podcast, you don't even need a microphone. With some programs (like Camstudio), you can set it up to record the audio as it plays out on the computer. So if you have a text-to-speech program, you can use this text-to-speech program to create an MP3 file for you that you can upload to the podcast directories.

There are a lot of these "text-to-speech" programs out there so you will want to do your best to find the best one for you. If I was creating a podcast, I would go with the microphone route. That way people know that I am real, and that they can relate to me or ask me any question that they may have about my recording.

Now with some programs, after you have recorded your podcast, it will turn it into a large WAV audio file. This is an uncompressed, HUGE file that is high in quality, but much too large to continue to market it as a podcast. Because of this, you will want to find a program that can convert it into MP3 format (which is much smaller in comparison), and then upload it to the podcast directories.

Now MP3 files are compressed, but sometimes it gives you good output. While with some programs, the resulting MP3 audio file is low in quality, and makes it hard to hear what you are saying due to the static or noise that you hear... or the low voice that has occurred due to the compression of the large WAV file.

This is very important to know because if you stick with the WAV file, your marketing efforts will be incredibly slow. You could literally wait hours before your WAV file makes it onto the podcast directory that you're uploading for. So turn your podcast into an MP3 file so that it can be uploaded very simply and easily onto multiple podcast sites.

Podcasts are a great way to market your products or services online, and it's something that you will want to use in your business if you want to have the most success as possible. This is a social marketing strategy that you can use to get tons of people back to your website. So be sure to do them right away.

Good luck with using these tips to earn the kind of money that you're looking for using podcasts.
