If you dream of launching a podcast but you don’t know what to do next, you’re in the right place. This workbook will guide you through the nine steps you need to take to plan your podcast BEFORE you start recording.
How to plan a podcast, from personal experience
I’ve lived these nine steps while creating and launching podcasts so I’m not pulling these out of thin air. Planning a podcast is exhilarating, exciting, and exhausting. At so many points on this journey I said “this is the hardest part, once we’re past this we’re good.” I’m glad I knew the steps or I may have lost heart through the process. I share them with you today so you will also be empowered the next time you wonder if you should start a podcast. You’ll know what the steps are and how to plan a podcast. You’ll also know how much work you have ahead of you so you’re mentally prepared for the roller coaster you’re about to get on. Podcasting is an amazing, amazing media and, when done right, a game changer.
First I’ll overview the steps, then break them down a bit.
