Getting On Air!

Awesound Logo
When you press play… Podcast Hosting is what puts an episode in your earballs. I use Awesound and love them because they’re built around a few awesome business principles. Affordability, ease of use, and the best customer service imaginable. Plus, Awesound plans start at… Free!

Libsyn logoLibSyn stands for Liberated Syndication. These guys are the juggernaut of podcast hosting, but it’s sometimes difficult for the big guys to give the little guys the attention they need. Besides their customer service not coming close to Awesound, LibSyn is the only other hosting provider I’d recommend to anyone. They’ve got good plans, are reliable, and have been in the podcast hosting game since 2004.

Editing & Recording Software

Some people don’t edit. I do. Interview shows require dramatically less editing, but I’m not perfect… So, I edit my solo shows more…

Audacity is the free editing and recording software I recommend to everyone. This is the software I use to record all my shows… And of course I use the Roland for my fail-safe backup as described in the video above.

Check out and download Audacity

Rosa does the editing for The Creative Success Show on her Mac… On a recommendation, I purchased a recording and editing software called Amadeus Pro.

It’s the Best purchase I made for my podcast under $100

You’ll learn how to use the noise reduction, leveling sound, mixing in or fading out music, and a lot more very quickly… Just like Rosa did… And neither of us are techy 🙂

Podcast Launch & Growth Strategy

Yes, I was ranked #1 in iTunes New & Noteworthy when I launched back in March 2016.

And as I’m writing this in August 2016, I’m still there… That’s the whole Noteworthy side of N&N.

While 90% of all podcasts average less than 250 downloads per episode, within 6 months of launching, I was getting nearly 1000 downloads in a day! What would 1000 people listening to you do for your business?

Just like your website… Launching a successful podcast requires the right strategy… And this strategy is repeatable. No tricks… No celebrity… No gimmicks… Just a step by step formula that you can repeat on your own podcast…

If you’re launching, already launched, or just want more downloads…
