How to Start a Podcast

Launching Your Podcast Journey

You’ve been entertaining the thought of starting a podcast, knowing that your unique perspective and voice should be shared with the world.

You’re not alone. Millions of people across the globe have embarked on their podcasting adventures. The good news is that podcast listenership continues to rise at an amazing pace. So, you might ask yourself, “how do I begin my podcast journey?” Here are some easy-to-follow steps to help you launch your authentic podcast in no time.

Step 1: Equip Yourself with the Right Podcast Tools

Podcasters who opt for Blubrry Podcast Hosting enjoy the longest-lasting shows in the industry. Our suite of tools, services and knowledge work in unison to support the growth of your shows, brand and audience size. Our mission has always been to empower podcasters to succeed on their terms.

Step 2: Retain Ownership of Your Podcast

“Free” podcast platforms exist, but they often chip away at your ownership rights, and you end up being the product.

Invest in yourself if you value your voice as much as Blubrry does. We want you to retain full ownership of your podcast. That’s why our podcast hosting platform is designed for maximum flexibility with a laser focus on driving traffic to a podcast website that you control.

Additionally, we provide highly accurate podcast statistics, voice transcription, media mastering, built-in social sharing options and more.

Step 3: Necessary Resources to Publish Your Podcast

Blubrry provides everything you need to become a podcaster (minus a podcast microphone) whether or not you have a website. If you already have a WordPress site, use our PowerPress Plugin, the most popular podcasting plugin. Alternatively, take advantage of our free managed WordPress website, powered by PowerPress.

If your circumstances require an alternative to WordPress, such as a corporate site, you can use Blubrry’s internal publishing platform for your podcast.
