On this PodOn episode, Julian and TJ talk about a feared yet common phenomenon in the podcasting community, the podfade. Every new podcaster makes the mistake of underestimating the immense amounts of work and time that it takes to really take a podcast to the next level. The podfade doesn’t discriminate, no matter if it’s an indie production or part of a corporate project, it doesn’t take much for even the best podcasts to fade away. Learn TJ and Julian’s tips and tricks to own your time back and focus on your creativity to stay ahead of the curve, not behind it.
Jump straight into:
(00:56) - What does podfading stand for? - “The average podcaster, when they get started, lasts about four to seven episodes before they fade away”.
(01:59) - Quick tactics to prevent the podfade - “What I wish I had done was start to plan and then do all my recordings then I can worry about all the post production work”.
(03:36) - How batch recording and hiring editors can help you stay focused - “When I first got started I definitely underestimated the amount of time an energy it would take to produce a podcast”.
(05:22) - The key is your content: do your research and remember your passion! - “If I was spending all my time recording then I wasn't spending time on relationships”.
(06:55) - Why your podcast won’t thrive unless you are consistent and build your rhythm - “Once you start falling behind it’s going to be harder and harder to catch up and eventually that fade is going to happen”.
