Do you ever have problems getting enough content recorded and you always feel like you’re trying to beat the bell to get that content out on a regular basis? This is the episode for you.
Hello, I’m Ben Krueger, the Podcast Marketing Guy and welcome to Authority Engine TV. This is where I’m dedicated to helping you grow your business using the power of podcast marketing every Thursday morning. All right, let’s do it. Okay folks, if you’re here you’re probably week after week or every couple of days after every couple days, you’re up against the timer trying to get episode content ready to go live and every podcaster will have this challenge.
It really comes down to figuring out how your schedule works and how you can get episode content recorded but I’ve got a couple of little gems for you that will make this so much easier and will allow you to wipe the sweat off your back or however you want to say it.
This is a bunch of kids screaming in the background by the way, I’m pretty close to a school playground. I apologize if there’s a little bit of yelling going on.
Here’s the two things you’re going to want to do to get ahead of the curve. Number one, you want to build up a “in the tank” approach to podcasting. What this means is if I publish episodes on a weekly basis that means I want to always have three or four episodes in my Dropbox folder or on my desktop so that I can use those in case, let’s say, one week I don’t get any content recorded. That’s what we call “in the bank” or “in the can” approach.
Generally I like to keep between three and five episodes in the can that why I know that I’m always a little bit ahead of time and we won’t have any problems if, let’s say, I end up taking a week off or something happens last minute and I can’t record any content or a guest doesn’t show up. That’s one thing.
The other piece to this is to record in batch. When you do your recordings, line up multiple episodes at the same time and do those all at once. For instance with this episode, you’ll notice that my background won’t change, the background noise won’t change, my shirt might because I want to not be wearing the same shirt for every episode in every video I do but I’m going to record the next three or four episodes right here, right now, all back to back and then I’m going to publish them out over the next couple of weeks.
That’s something that you can use whether you’re doing video, audio, whether you’re doing podcast interviews that’s okay too. You can line them all up in one day and preferably back to back to back so that you don’t have to be spending all this time doing all of your content creation, you can get it all mapped out and do a really good job of it at one go. Then turn and focus on your business, focus on growing your audience, focus on some of those important things.
Again I’m Ben Krueger. This has been another episode of Authority Engine TV and I encourage you guys to check out this pre-recording checklist that we’ve created which will make it a lot easier to record your stuff when you’re doing your batch recording. It’s a very simple checklist to go through that will make sure that you get the best audio quality and make sure that you get the best version of your recording every time with no problems. You can grab it AuthorityEngine.com/prerecord, all one word.
Again I’m Ben Krueger and I appreciate you guys stopping by. We’ll see you next Thursday morning.
