How to Overcome the Fear of Starting a Podcast
Starting a podcast is scary when you don’t know what to do or how to start. You may have misconceptions about the podcast industry and you aren’t sure if it’s for you. It’s common for people to freeze up and allow fear to prevent them from pursuing the ideas they have. Truth be told, starting a podcast is easier than you think. Here are some tips to overcome your fear of starting a podcast!
If you have trouble coming up with an idea for a podcast
It’s important to come up with a marketable idea. Search within the topic you’re interested in to see if there's a gap. You want to bridge the gap in the topic area so you can leverage your show to stand out.
If you think a podcast is too technical
Now you may think otherwise but you don’t have to be a tech wizard to start a podcast. There is editing software such as audacity, adobe, and audition that’s easy to use to edit your podcast episode. If you don’t want to deal with technical parts, you can outsource it to us or a freelancer.
If you think starting a podcast is expensive
There’s no upfront cost when you start a podcast. It’s audio so you don’t have to create visual content. The only item you have to purchase is a mic. Invest in a quality mic that lasts long. When you purchase the mic make sure you hear the audio the mic produces. In the long run, you’ll make money from ads, sponsors, and customers.
If you dislike the sound of your voice
Your voice is a gift! Don’t allow your insecurity to keep you from sharing your message with the masses. People will be able to recognize you because of your unique voice! Also, speak clearly and enunciate so your audience can understand you.
