How To Start a Video or Audio Podcast
This course is really 2 courses in 1:
- Part 1 shows you how to quickly and easily create a video podcast and submit it to iTunes for sharing globally.
- Part 2 takes you behind the scenes of my popular video podcast and reveals all the simple tech I use, the strategy I chose when setting it up, the process I used to gain free media exposure and the various ways I make money from my show.
Hi, my name's James Burchill and in December 2017 (after noting the increasing reach of podcasting and the rise of online video,) I decided to launch my own video podcast and committed to a weekly schedule - a new episode published every Friday at 9 am Eastern. To date I've produced 40+ video (10-15 minute) episodes of my Smartcar Coffee Confidential Show (the name of my video podcast.)
During the first year I also secured local news media coverage (and a weekly syndication deal on their social media and main website channels.) I also published a branded domain: http://SmartcarCoffeeConfidential.com and launched a YouTube series, and now have the show airing weekly on our local Cogeco Cable TV network (with an ongoing syndication deal through to the summer of 2019.)
If you'd like to launch your own successful video (or audio) podcast, enrol right away because I explain how I did it and how you can too. After all, creating a video podcast is one thing (and I teach you how to do it quickly and efficiently,) but if no one watches your show, what's the point? We will cover that too, and how you can monetize your show if you wish.
Finally, I take you behind the scenes and show you my entire podcasting setup and framework, the tools I use to make publishing my video podcast a breeze, the website tech I use to host my video podcast, how I got my video podcast listed on Apple iTunes and more.
I look forward to sharing all this with you, and once you've secured your entrance in to this course, you are assured free updates and life-time access too.
