Mixer BoardIn an earlier three part series, I talked about how ReadyTalk can make your content creation a snap. I also addressed distribution and promotion of your podcast in the series as well.

Today, in this post, I wanted to talk about some advanced techniques that will really make your podcast shine. While ReadyTalk makes content creation as easy as a click of a box, we are not a editing studio for professional podcasts. However, there are several tricks you can do in your office or home that will give your podcast a professional polish.

A consistent feel for your podcast is critical if you wish to retain your listeners and build your brand recognition. A great way to do this is to add an open and close track. For example, I frequently interview speakers for our Web Seminar Series before their event as a promotional teaser.
Background music is played while a short introduction about the Interview Speaker series is read at the beginning of each interview. The closing track features the same music and thanks the listener and gives a short promotion for our Web Seminar Series

While we had our opening and closing tracks professionally produced, you may choose to do it yourself. Either way, we make it easy to download the mp3 of your recording and edit it. A simple Google search for mp3 editor turned up these results. Some editors are better than others, I would suggest you trial a couple to find the one that works best for you.

Mouse over the recording you wish to download and choose download audio from the menu. When the download is complete, you will have the mp3 file on your computer.You may load this mp3 file into your editor of choice and edit until your heart is content.

The final step, after editing, is to re-publish the podcast. Remember that once you download the recording from our service and edit the recording, we no longer host it. You will need to host it on your website or use another hosting service like Switchpod. Finally, don't forget to read my blog posts on distribution and promotion, if you have not already. They will give you some great tips on how to get your podcast out to your audience.
