This Is How Much Money You Can Make With a $10,000 Self-Media Kit
I’ve seen self-publishing on Craigslist and the like, but the idea of spending thousands of dollars on a self-styled “self-publisher” (which I’d argue is a better description of the kind of guy who creates a podcast) seems a bit ridiculous to me.
So why would I go through the trouble of going to the trouble and expense of actually making a podcast?
And what is the point of it?
Well, to answer those questions, we’ve put together a few quick, easy-to-understand tips for making a really awesome podcast that you can listen to without having to hire a podcaster.
So, without further ado, here’s how to make a really cool podcast that actually works: 1.
Make a Podcast Template This is a super basic template for your podcast.
It’s a list of topics, tags, and a few other basic details.
You can pick this template if you want to, but I prefer to do this step to make it super easy to work with and keep it up to date.
Once you have your podcast template, it’s time to go ahead and create your podcast’s content.
If you’re using SoundCloud, you can use this template instead.
The only downside of using Soundcloud templates is that it’s hard to edit or delete your podcasts later on.
So if you’re doing podcasts that you want your listeners to listen to in their native language, you may want to pick up a SoundCloud template instead of the template below.
Choose a Format The first thing you’ll want to do is choose your podcast format.
If your podcast is hosted on a website, that’s the easiest way to go with this one.
If it’s a podcast hosted on SoundCloud or other platform, then you’ll need to go a step further and create a podcast template from scratch.
You’ll need this template to create your podcasts, but you can also use any format you like, as long as it’s at least 8-by-16 inches (20-by 22 centimeters) and includes audio and video files.
Create Your Podcast Template Once you’ve done all that, you’re ready to begin making your podcast!
In this case, I chose to make my podcast templates for the following platforms: iTunes, SoundCloud and Facebook.
The idea here is to be able to upload your podcast, edit it, and then play it back to your listeners in any format they want.
If there are audio and/or video files you want the listener to listen in, you’ll probably want to include those in the template, too.

Download the Podcast You’ll want your podcast to be hosted on these platforms, so download them to your computer or other device and play them in the format you choose.
I like to use YouTube as my podcast template.

Once your podcast has been uploaded, you should see a little “Download Now” button in the top right corner.
If the button doesn’t go away immediately, you might need to click on the “Play” button to start playing your podcast now.
After you’ve started playing, click on “Done” in the bottom right corner to get the download link for your pod.
After downloading the podcast, you want it to start automatically on your device when you’re finished listening to it.
So open up your iTunes or SoundCloud client and head to the Podcasts tab.
Once there, click the “Add Podcast” button.
This will bring up a list that contains the audio and content files you’ve downloaded.
You may have to click “Play now” on the first few files if they’re already on your hard drive.
Once the podcast is installed, it should start playing automatically whenever you want.
Now that you’ve got your podcast running automatically, go ahead, listen to it and let me know what you think.
