Ahhhh time to dust of the credit card and get ready to spend a few pounds. Only kidding. Podcasting can actually be a very cheap start up venture, although if like me, you are truly dedicated and see this as something you want to do forever, maybe a larger investment upfront will save your money down the road. I am fully aware that some of the equipment I use is more expensive than most, but at the same time I want the quality to reflect my guests and I want listeners to have the best possible experience on the Find Your Voice Podcast.
Okay, I’m ready…
So you’ve got your whole plan of the podcast, structure and formats ready right?
Well maybe firstly you should ready my blog “How to start a podcast” which has 10 steps on how to start a podcast, but also gives you the software you will need to start podcasting.
Got it. Now what?
So in terms of actual physical equipment you will at some stage need the following:
1. Your Voice – it helps, honestly trust me.
2. A Computer/Laptop – same thing really. Although recently I have heard through the grape-vine you can do it via your mobile phone!
So the main thing here is a microphone, and yes I got a little excited! I currently use the Rode Nt-Usb which does not require a power adaptor and looks awesome! Plus the actual sound quality is very evident when I record my shows and stands out! So for me this investment was 100% worth it.
There are however alternatives out there for you:
