How To Start a Podcast

It’s been circling around in your brain, this idea that you need to start a podcast. You have a unique voice and view of the world, and you want to share it. You’re not alone. Millions of people across the world have decided to start a podcast. Even better? Podcast audiences are growing . But, you might be wondering… “how exactly do I start my own podcast?” Below, we’ll outline some easy steps you can take to start a podcast that is uniquely you in just a few minutes.

Step 1: Having The Right Podcast Tools

Podcasters who choose Blubrry podcast hosting have the longest-living shows in podcasting. Our tools, services and methodology work together to help you grow your show, brand and audience size. Our goal has always been to ensure podcasters are set up for their own success.

Step 2: Maintaining Ownership Of Your Podcast

There are podcast platforms available that are “free.” But these “free” platforms are actually taking away your ownership rights. Yep. You pour your blood, sweat and tears into starting and growing your podcast… and they own it!

But, if you know — as Blubrry does — that your voice is valuable, invest in yourself. We want you to own your podcast. That’s why our podcast hosting platform is the most flexible available and laser-focused on helping you build traffic to a podcasting website you own, with crazy-accurate podcast statistics, and even voice transcription and social sharing options built right in.

Step 3: What You Need To Publish Your Podcast

Blubrry has everything you need to become a podcaster — whether you have a website or not. You can use PowerPress, the No. 1 podcasting plugin with your existing WordPress website, or use our free managed WordPress website powered by PowerPress.

Do you have a corporate site or maybe you just don’t want to use WordPress? No problem, use our internal publishing platform for your podcast
