One of the great things about podcasting is that it’s just as dynamic as writing a blog or or producing a video. You can do anything you like to stand out, build an audience, and engage your listeners. You can mix and match the different format styles and create a unique format that works for you. Once you select a format for your concept, you can begin writing your treatment for your first episode. You can script the entire first episode but you can also just outline it and ultimately freestyle during the show.
Things to include in your podcast budget:
- Equipment set-up
- Podcast hosting site
- The space to conduct your podcast
Podcasting has never been easier. You can create a podcast on your phone or computer using a free podcasting hosting site. Most podcasters are the producer, host, director and editor of their podcasting enterprise. Over time, however, you will want to pay to fulfill these positions.
