April Ockerman began podcasting about 9 months ago. She had spent about a year doing research into how to start her podcast.
While she worked through figuring out her budget for podcasting, deciding what pieces of podcasting equipment to get, which software to use for recording and editing, April also had to face her fears of getting started by realizing that she can really impact people through her podcast.
Some lessons she learned as she got started:
Do you research - find out what makes a good audience, what length your audience likes
Ask people to listen to the podcast
Be open to receive feedback
Set the time aside (it takes her about 3 hours to do two 15 minute episodes)
