3 Podcast Tasks to Outsource Now

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.

Editing

Suppose you edit your podcast, you know some of the pitfalls that come along with it. Editing is the most time-consuming task when it comes to podcasting. It takes 3-4 times as long to edit than record your podcast. It can be difficult to edit a podcast when you haven’t developed the editing skills needed to make your podcast sound great. You can develop these skills overtime but it can be time consuming and a lot of people get frustrated. This can lead to not being able to make deadlines for podcast releases and can discourage someone from continuing to podcast. If this is something, you have in addition to a business or a full-time job, it can make editing a tedious task. If you have the resources to hire someone to take care of this task, it will make you more likely to continue podcasting on a regular schedule.

Transcripts

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

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!
