I just found the coolest podcasting tool … it is ? love at first sight.
I had a podcast a few years back… we went to number one on New and Notable for iTunes… it was fun – but a TON of work…
Besides lining up guests, making sure they had a good mic set up, promoting the podcast, etc. – there was all the set up (getting your feed to work, recording your episode, posting it to iTunes, Pocket Cast, etc. )
It was a TON of work – and eventually, even though we were getting 1000 downloads a week – we decided it wasn’t worth it to continue.
And, when we decided to cancel our podcast hosting service which was costing us a lot of money, they didn’t have a way to give us the feed, so the podcast ended up being taken off of iTunes.
Recently tho, I found a free smartphone app called anchor.fm which completely simplifies the process.
✔ It takes about 15 minutes to set up your show… they take care of setting up all your feeds to iTunes, etc.
Once you are all set up, you just record by talking into your phone (the sound quality is awesome). Push done – you can add a background track and publish. The podcast magically goes where it needs to.
✔You can even interview guests through the app, have people leave messages, etc.
And… it is all free. Such a timesaver.
I’m using it for a quick 4 day per week podcast with a 2-minute business tip – here’s a link if you want to see what that looks like – https://anchor.fm/meredith-eisenberg
