Do you want to start a podcast? I say go for it! I will tell you that it’s more work than you think, but it’s a lot of fun too. I have met several other podcasters that have different reasons for doing a podcast. Some do it as a fun hobby, it’s a side gig, and for some, it can also be an additional aspect of a business. If you can outsource, I would say do it, it will make your life easier and give you access to podcast professionals. These are a few of the top things you can outsource to save you time and money.
Podcast transcripts can be tedious, some AI programs can help you with these, but you do have to go back through the transcript and correct words that the AI software may have incorrectly transcribed. Creating transcripts can be a time-consuming task, so outsourcing this is a good idea. Some people skip out on the transcripts, but they may soon be required due to ADA compliance, so it’s best to start doing them now. Transcripts also help with SEO for your website and your podcast, so save yourself time and enhance your podcasts ability to rank in the search engines by getting someone to help you with these.
Show notes are another time-consuming and tedious task that most podcasters would prefer to outsource. These are great for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) used to help find your podcast using keywords. It’s also a great tool to entice people to listen to your podcast and understand what to expect when they decide to listen to an episode.
These three tasks can be time-consuming, taking you away from creating good content, and they can also impact your ability to release episodes on time and on a consistent bases. If you are looking for someone to help you with your production needs, reach out to us, we’d love to help!
