Hey savvies! Welcome back to another episode of Savvy Podcasting for Entrepreneurs. In today’s episode, we’re chatting about how I recorded an entire year’s worth of guest episodes in 7 days.
2021 is quickly approaching and it’s not too late to start planning your podcast launch for early 2021.

- I found out I was pregnant back in October 2019 and knew I needed to get my booty in gear and get my podcast episodes recorded for the entire year so that come June when I had my son, I didn’t have to worry about recording new episodes until the very end of the year in preparation for 2021.
- I am a huge proponent of batch recording episodes and this kind of took things to the next level.
- So first, you are building that trust with your audience by sharing free content that is just as good as your paid content.
- Batch recording is where you block off time whether that’s a full day each week or even do like I did a full week and record a ton of episodes at once instead of randomly taking podcast interviews throughout each week.
- So preparing for this batch week was definitely a bit of a process. I first made an outreach list of everyone I wanted to interview and started sending out emails about a month out from the batch week so they’d have time to pick a day that best fit their schedule that week.
- The week before recording, I sat down and made a list of the questions for each person and then scheduled them to be sent out the day before we were set to record our episode.
- Make sure to allow a break between calls. I usually do about 10 minutes before and 10 minutes after just in case the interview goes over by a little I’m not rushing them to make it onto the next interview.
- I also think it’s important to block off time for lunch. I usually block off 11 am to 12 pm for lunch so that I don’t have to cram a meal in between interviews.
- Make sure to set a cap on the number of interviews you conduct each day.
- While batch recording your guest episodes in just one week for the entire year may not work for everyone, you should definitely give batch recording a try at least by batching your recordings one day a week or even taking it a step further for one day a month.
