- plug and play USB microphone
- pop filter
- Audacity (Free) for edit software https://www.audacityteam.org/
- Launch when 5 episodes already published, 5 in the lineup
- Google spreadsheet to plan them out. I keep it simple. I have columns for the date to publish, the URL of the blog post for the transcript, the iTunes title, and the iTunes description of the episode.
- Once you have your list of blog posts, then try to sort them into mini-themes.
5 episodes to start with
- There is no “best” trading strategy – there’s only what’s best for you https://bullmarkets.co/no-one-size-fits-all-approach-to-trading-and-investing/
- the take profits close position post
- create a very clickable title in the front end, while including your target keyword phrase in the tail end. In iTunes, you have around 108 characters to work with
For example, if the keyword phrase you are targeting is “best dog food for puppies” then you could lead with a clickbait title like:
Your Puppy Needs This to Be Healthy – The Best Dog Food for Puppies
- Since the iTunes ranking algorithm is pretty basic, it makes sense to get as much out of your titles as you can.
- In iTunes SEO, you will focus your efforts on the phrases with the highest volume of monthly searches, regardless of competition.
So, you are better off creating an episode going after the keyword phrase, “internet marketing,” as opposed to going after “internet marketing tactics for real estate companies.”
- Don’t lead episode title with episode #
- Must be minimum 1400 x 1400 pixels and a maximum size of 3000 x 3000 pixels, 72 dpi, in JPEG or PNG format with appropriate file extensions (.jpg, .png), and in the RGB colorspace. To optimize images for mobile devices, Apple recommends compressing your image files.”

Tips when reading blog post into podcast episode
- Print out a simple phrase to start off your episode to transition into your blog post transcript. Most of your blog posts will need an extra intro to transition into the content of the post. It is best just to type this down and print it out also.
- Start by doing a test recording of ten seconds to make sure everything is working right. About once every ten episodes, my test audio is all messed up. Usually, it is because a connection is loose. Other times it is because my computer chooses the wrong microphone. This ten-second test is a must for every episode.
- HAVE LOTS OF ENERGY!

Hire someone to do this
- I grab my optimized title from the Google spreadsheet and drop it in. Then I write a short description. Your description should be one to two sentences long, which teases what is in the episode. Besides the tease, you will want to include a link to the blog post you used as the transcript, which will serve as your show notes.
