For the last few months now the blogosphere has been hot with the word "podcast". As podcasting is not as ubiquitous as video, it seems that small businesses can utilize this medium more effectively as there is less competition.

If you want to start a podcast you could do no worse that to go to the podcasting expert, Pat Flynn at SmartPassiveIncome.com.

Here's Pat's Complete Step-By-Step Podcasting Tutorial. It contains 6 videos and over an hours' worth of video. http://www.smartpassiveincome.com/how...

However, I thought I'd do my own podcasting set-up guide and try to include only the most essential points for beginners. Another reason why I created the above video was that I have started a second podcast at GenuineHypnosis.com. So I show the whole podcast publishing process from beginning to end.

What you need to start a podcast

I could go on for hours and hours about equipment, passion, speaking talent (of which I have none), etc. But, basically, I think you need three things in order to start a podcast:

An idea. Just like when you start a blog or a new website, you need to have a reason for doing it. Ask yourself, how can I help the podcast's audience? The Design and Marketing Podcast seeks to help designers with business and business with design and the Genuine Hypnosis Happiness Podcast seeks to make the audience happy.

Audio. Ah, yes, in order to start a podcast you're going to need some audio! Here's some words on podcasting equipment. Personally, my favorite tools are Call Recorder for Skype, Audacity, GarageBand (Mac only, I'm afraid), Blue Snowflake USB Microphone and, er, that's it!

A brand. Your podcast is a brand just like your site is a brand and you are a brand. It needs a title and a logo. The logo has to be square and you need to save two versions. One 300 x 300 pixels; the other 1400 x 1400 pixels in size. There's a real art to designing icons that work at both very big and very small sizes. I chose the easy way out and kept them simple.
