Updated: Sep 25, 2019
So you have a great idea for your first podcast, but you have no idea how to make that happen so everyone can listen to your work? Well this is a common problem and at Beat Tank Studio based in Melbourne's Eastern suburbs, we have set up a dedicated podcast recording room with all the latest tools to make your dream come true. Simply have your ideas written down on paper or laptop, come in for a few hours and let our in-house engineer take you through the recording process and give you tips on how to make your podcast sound professional.
Here are some helpful tips to making sure your first podcast will be will received once you release it.
1 - Make sure your idea is original and not copied from someone else's.
2- Create a slogan / theme and use original music so people recognise the start of the podcast just by the music or sting.
3- Invite interesting guests and record interviews with relevant experts in the field
4 - Make sure you talk clearly and vary your tone. If people have to listen to your voice for 45 minutes at a time it needs to hold their interest.
5- Get the podcast professionally mixes and mastered - this will ensure the edit points are clean, your voice sounds smooth and it gets outputted to the right loudness specification for iTunes.
6- Promote and advertise your podcast to get it heard. Write a blog post to support the podcast and put aside a budget for paid advertising to ensure your podcast doesn't slip through the gaps.
So if you are ready to go with your podcast, give us a call or email us today to get started and book in a time to get your first episode recorded and the theme music ready.
