How To Start A Podcast In Kenya: Podcasts also play great roles in terms of entertainment and education. An example of a podcast is a radio program aired on the internet.
This is how to start a podcast in Kenya:
Step 1: Identify Your Topic
Your podcast should be focused on a certain topic or niche. Try to limit it down to something you can talk about for a long time (at least 100 episodes), but not so wide that it won’t appeal to your target audience.
Step 2: Choose Your Co-Host (Optional)
Do you wish to co-host with a friend, a business partner, or a coworker?
If you have a co-host, it might be a lot easier to get started with podcasting. Besides, if you both have opposing viewpoints on a topic, your discussion will automatically become more engaged.
Having someone to keep things on track might also be beneficial.
Step 3: Choose Your Podcast Name
Choose a name that encompasses the entire topic. Choose a name that will allow you to expand if you wish to do so later.
Step 4: Identify Your Show Format
a. Length Of Show
Because the typical driving duration is 28 minutes, you don’t need a 28-minute podcast. Or less than an hour, because people can’t focus for more than that.
There are podcasts that are 5 minutes long and some that are 6 hours long. Find something that works for you and go with it
b. Style Of Show
Although interview programs are popular, you are not obligated to participate in one. You can split your time between solo (or co-hosted) shows and interview shows.
c. Show Format
The format of your episode can either be a piece of intro music, interview, call to action, outro music, welcome, teaser, etc. Be creative to make interesting small clips that are shareable across social media.
Step 5: Make Attractive Cover Art.
As they navigate through Apple Podcasts or their favorite podcast app, most listeners will see your cover image as the first thing they see. It may also be the image that appears when you post about your show on social media.
Step 6: Get An Introduction to Music
There is good music that is copyrighted and free. One or two popular songs can be used to give a great introduction.
Step 7: Get Your Microphone
Audio quality is crucial, but getting a decent-quality microphone for podcasting does not have to be expensive. Make sure your audio output is clean and devoid of noise so that your listeners are drawn in.
Step 8: Get Your Podcast Guest
If you’re planning an interview program, now is the time to start making a list of persons you’d like to have on your podcast. Then begin making contact with them.
Step 9: Record And Edit Your Podcast
Alitu is a ‘podcasting’ program that automates a lot of the technical aspects of the process and essentially produces your episode for you.
It’s all done directly in your browser, so there’s no software to install, and it works on any computer with an internet connection. It has a 7-day free trial.
Another free software you can use is GarageBand. It’s completely free and you can use it to create your podcast at no cost.
Step 10: Create A Template
It will be much easier if you develop a template that you can use every time you record a podcast episode before you begin.
This means you’ll already have your opening and outro music, as well as space for ads and tracks for your voice or an interviewee, in place.
Keep in mind that the appearance of this may vary based on the style of your episode – come up with a podcast design that works for you.
Step 11: Record Your First Episode
This can either be a solo host, multiple hosts, or a remote interview.
Step 11: Edit Your Episode
Editing helps remove unwanted parts and offers a good transition between events.
Step 12: Launch Your Podcast
Congratulations. At this time, your podcast is ready to go live with your audience. There are many podcast hosts you can use to upload your podcast such as Buzzsprout. You can also submit your podcast to Apple podcast.
