WEBINAR: Podcasting Essentials – 2 July 2020

Danny Chifley, 22nd June 2020
Podcasting continues to be a buzz word in 2020. Audiences are increasingly turning to downloadable content that interests them, and that they can listen to in their own time. So, what are some of the things you need to consider before you start a podcast?

In this session you’ll find out how, when, why and if you should get into podcasting. It will look at the different genres, what’s most popular out there at the moment, and how to make your podcast sustainable. 

Join us as we explore:

  • What to ask yourself before you begin
  • What gear you will need
  • The importance of the audience. Who is your podcast for?
  • Why audio fundamentals are essential
  • Once you have made it, how people can hear it
  • How to promote your podcast and grow an audience
