In early 2014, we were approached to create an online podcasting course. Podfly was about 6 months old at the time, and any new opportunity to develop our brand was welcomed. We at Podfly also identified a need to help new podcasters lay a foundation of basic knowledge for many unfamiliar with the medium. So, the notion of creating an online program in concert with planning lessons that could lay the groundwork for our clients seemed like a natural win-win.
With that, we embarked on recording a 10 lesson series of foundational videos and specializations that we are happy to offer you, free of charge.
Each series’ syllabus leads to live sessions, deep dives into advanced aspects of podcasting, and best practices from experienced podcasters. We hope you are able to gather some base knowledge of podcasting and we would love to hear back from you!
Podfly Academy - Lesson 1 of 10
Podcasting is fun. It’s also hard work. Not surprising that since the dawn of this medium, podcasters have been crafting ways to make the fun pay off. Traditional advertising methods work for a select few - an estimated 0.05% of podcasters monetize their show via direct sponsorship - and finding vertical opportunities by leveraging your own business works for others. But what about those who neither have a large online listenership nor a business directly tied to their podcast?
Podfly’s Corey Coates takes you through the first of a series of tutorials on anything you might want to know about setting up a podcast. These specialization videos will focus primarily on Adobe’s Audition software, but this particular one is all about the basics and how to get started. Learn how to position your introduction, remove annoying ‘ums’, turn a few stumbling sentences into a natural conversation and much more.
With over 45 minutes of step-by-step teaching, complete with pre-recorded audio clips and examples, you should hopefully come away with a lot of questions answered. That said, the Podfly Academy Team hope it’ll also leave you itching to find out more and really get to grips with this sophisticated piece of programming which could just change your life.
Once you’ve worked through all the tutorials, you’ll be the one answering everybody else’s questions!
