Hey savvies! Welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I’m so happy you’re here. In today’s episode, we’re chatting all about spring cleaning your podcast process.
Now, I know we’re well into spring and almost to summer, but hey, sometimes we do things a little unconventional around here.
So let’s dive into this episode.
- Streamline any processes that aren’t currently the most efficient – Over here at SPA, we are all about efficiency. I like to take a look at my own and my client’s podcast processes 1-2 times a year and do an audit to make sure that the process still works and works well. If there’s a better way to do something, I want to be doing it that way so this helps me make improvements and tighten up our process so that we’re not wasting a bunch of time.
- Figure out a batching schedule for recording, editing, shownotes, etc. – In my opinion, batching is key to success with your podcast and not getting completely burnt out by the process. Batching is meant to make you feel less overwhelmed but sometimes it does the exact opposite at first since most people try to batch all the things instead of taking it one step at a time. So first start batching your recordings and then once you’re doing that consistently, then select another podcast task to batch, and so on and so on. This makes everything much more manageable especially when you don’t have a team to help you.
- Go back and optimize your episodes for SEO – both within your host and on your website – Now this one may take a while but it’s so worth it since I know most of us haven’t been doing this from the very beginning. Optimizing one old episode per week is super doable and will benefit you so much in the long run, I promise.
- Write outlines for your next few episodes – If you haven’t mastered batching all parts of the podcast process yet, then I highly recommend writing your outlines in advance at the very least so that when you’re ready to record you can just get on the mic and go for it instead of having to stop and write your outline which usually results in loss of momentum and sometimes complete loss of interest to where you don’t even feel like recording anymore.
Okay, that is it for today’s episode. I’d love to hear from you about your podcast processes. What is next on your list to spring clean your podcast processes – let me know over on Instagram @podcastingforentrepreneurs in the DMs.
