Guerrilla Podcasting, Soup to Nuts: Using WordPress and Awesome!

Want to do a podcast but have no idea where to begin? This talk is for the podcast newbie who needs help figuring out just how to get started. We will start from the begining, because it’s a very good place to start, and many of your decisions about your podcast will determine what you need to do to make it a success. How will you record your podcast? What will your podcast be about? Who will appear on your podcast? Which plugins should you use? How will you promote your podcast?

Along with options for plugins, we will discuss pros and cons of hosting options such as Libsyn, Buzzsprout, and Blubrry and how they integrate (or not) with your WordPress installation.

  1. Plan your podcast
  2. Record your podcast
  3. Choose your podcast hosting solution
  4. Add the right Plugins
  5. Publish your podcast
  6. Create blog post
  7. Submit to iTunes
  8. Use social tools to promote
