Podcasting is a way to create and transmit audio or video information on the Internet. The word podcasting itself (English “podcasting”) comes from the fusion of the words “iPod” (portable MP3 player) and “broadcasting” - extensive, widespread broadcasting.

Creating, promoting and distributing your podcast among millions of Internet users is a relatively simple task. You can send your podcast to the network in just 5-10 minutes! Podcasting is becoming increasingly popular since most bloggers choose this format to distribute their music or their message.

1. Determine the purpose of your podcast. What will your material be about? Write it down so as not to forget. Think of a plan or list of what you will talk about and what to discuss.

2. Select the tools for recording the podcast. This will require a microphone (analog or USB), a mixer (for an analog microphone), or even a new computer.

3. Decide on the software. If you have a Mac, you can use GarageBand (when you buy a Mac, it is free, along with the iLife package). There are also other free (for example, Audacity) and expensive programs (Adobe Audition).

These are the three main steps, without which nowhere. But there are many other ways to promote and popularize your show: invite celebrities to visit, improve the overall quality of production, attend various events, where you can record a podcast, make friends with potential audiences on like-minded forums and so on and so forth. Developing marketing skills can be a pleasant side effect from launching your podcast. In addition to all the other bonuses - from acquaintance with the technology of audio to the institution of useful dating. And we will finish our series of materials on this. Have a great podcast!
