My Tips and Tools for Creating Your Own Podcast

Today’s episode is all about podcasting. We usually talk about blogging in this podcast, but to celebrate reaching the milestone of 50 podcast episodes, I thought I might share what’s worked and what hasn’t worked in my podcasting journey so far.

In just three months my podcast series has hit #1 in iTunes Australia, was in the top 10 international chart for the first weeks, and is hovering in top 10 for Business/Marketing categories for Australia and America.

I still have a lot to learn, but I’ve been getting asked a lot about how I create this podcast series, so I decided to share what I’ve learned so far (and am sharing my most listened to podcasts and the tools I use below).
