Are you struggling with your post-production and editing time? Does it seem like you just can’t get your recordings to be “right” from the get go? Listen in to hear some of the things you should consider before you hit record and then while you’re on the mic! This is the first in a series all about best practices when it comes to various areas of your podcast!
Recording your episode SEEMS like it should be the easiest part right? I mean you’re sharing your knowledge with the world. You ALREADY HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE! So why is it so hard for you to get the recording to sound good?
Here are some of the most important things to consider:
💥 Your recording environment
💥 Mic placement
💥 Mic settings
💥 Overall, being familiar with your mic
💥 The cadence of your speech
💥 Remembering to stop and restart when you make a mistake
💥 Letting your guests know to do the same
💥 Not moving around as you speak
These are some of the most important factors to consider, but another good thing to do is to sit down and write out the talking points you want to be sure and hit when you begin recording. (I could DEFINITELY be better about doing that… 🤦♀️)
Writing things out and giving your episodes some structure will keep your podcasts engaging and help you with editing them because you won’t have as many flubs while you speak.
