Publisher's Summary

Do you want to start a popular podcast? In this guide, I'll show you how to start, grow, and monetize your podcast. 

When I started my podcast, I was 24 years old, completely clueless about audio editing, and a painfully introverted public speaker. I was very, very meek. To this day, I don’t know why I ever thought I could actually figure out this whole podcasting thing. 

I ordered a cheap microphone off of Amazon, signed up for an inexpensive hosting provider, and started producing podcast episodes out of my apartment in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I had no idea what I was doing, and it showed. They were horrible! I must have bored my early listeners to tears! My voice sounded like a robot. Sometimes, I would “shout” and talk like an infomercial salesman because I wanted to sound more confident. It was really bad… There were many starts and stops. I’d be very consistent one month, and the next month I’d get lazy. 

Sometimes I wondered if I was just simply wasting my time on podcasting. Maybe I wasn’t meant to be a public speaker. But I kept at it.I kept trying. I kept growing. Most importantly, I kept learning. Oh boy, am I glad I did. Over the next few years, I’d go on to amass more than 150,000 downloads, develop a fan base of loyal subscribers who “binge listen” to my show, and get to interview amazing entrepreneurs, authors, and award-winning podcasters. It’s been epic!

I’ve come to realize that it wasn’t really my fault that I wasn’t seeing success early on. I had the will and determination. I was even willing to invest money!

The problem was that I didn’t have the training. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know how to get started. I didn’t know how to get downloads, get people to listen to my show, or make money. The one thing that I wish I had when I got started with a guide. I wanted someone who could show me the ropes, without having to invest thousands and thousands of dollars in a personal coach.

I created this guide for you, because it’s the book that I wish I had available to me. The techniques, strategies, and resources that you’ll discover in this guide will literally supercharge your podcast.

If you follow my advice, you’ll become another breakout success and go on to develop a base of raving fans, just like I have. You just have to have that same hunger I did. You have to be willing to make this podcast a priority in your life.

Podcast 101

it feels like this was written as a high school English assignment. I am new to the podcast world and found only few minutes of useful information.

Could have watched a YouTube video for the Free

I was extremely disappointed with the book. I thought I would have more insider secrets, But it didn’t! It was nothing more than a self-promotion advertisement and one or two tips.

Good content

Salvador spends a bit too much time on the popularity of podcasts which I kind of feel is unnecessary. The last half of the book has some good content.

Perfect amount of info

This audible book was the perfect amount of info. It was very concise and to the point and got the bigger picture across that done is better than perfect sometimes. I think when we’re starting anything as an adult the new stuff is very scary and overwhelming. This author breaks it down extremely well and also gets the point across that getting material out there is the most important and then refining after that. A huge point I also like that he gets Across that it really does not cost a ton to put material out and try it out. He gives specific example of mint across that it really does not cost a ton to put material out and try it out. He gives specific example of Equipment to try depending on your expertise level and needs.Super helpful!

Overall excellent information

I'm new to podcasting and this book succinctly relayed the most important basics to put one together or choose not to. A must listen to so one doesnt get over their head and have regrets later.

Did I have the speed turned up?

Nope. This guy must talk fast. The information provided was good information and he was certainly enthusiastic. But the speed of the delivery and lack of breathing room made it uncomfortable to listen to for any length of time.

Good Guide But ..

I found it useful in a way, but I was hoping for more in depth insights on Podcasting, in terms of how to prepare for a podcast, the efforts behind creating a great show, and the process that goes behind it! The book was a bit generic to me.
