Before the Mic: Unveiling the Best Tips to Kickstart Your Business Podcast

Ready to kickstart your business podcast and rock the mic? You bet you are! Before you hit that record button and make waves in the podcasting world, let Octane serve you some hot tips that’ll leave your audience begging for more.


  1. Find Your Flair: First things first, hone in on your podcast’s unique flair. What makes your show stand out in a sea of podcasts? Embrace your quirkiness, humor, or expertise, and sprinkle that magic all over your episodes.
  2. Know Thy Audience: It’s time to get cozy with your audience. Figure out who they are, what they want, and how you can cater to their podcast cravings. The better you know your audience, the better you’ll serve up those juicy content slices.
  3. Brainstorm Like a Boss: Get those creative juices flowing, honey! Sit down and brainstorm a list of compelling topics that’ll have your listeners lining up like it’s a sample sale.
  4. Audio Awesomeness: Let’s face it, nobody likes fuzzy, muffled audio. Invest in a decent microphone and headphones, so you sound like the confident, sassy superstar you are.
  5. Kill the Clutter: A cluttered intro can be as annoying as slow internet. Keep it concise, snappy, and introduce yourself like the rockstar host you are.
  6. Batch Those Babies: No, I’m not talking about baking cookies (even though that’s tempting!). Record a bunch of episodes in advance to keep your podcasting mojo going strong.
  7. Banish the Boring: Spice up your podcast with engaging stories, personal anecdotes, and maybe even a dash of celebrity gossip (wink).
  8. Call to Action: Want your listeners to do something after each episode? Give them a clear call-to-action! Whether it’s subscribing, leaving a review, or sending you their favorite cat memes, make it known.
  9. Title Tango: Your podcast title is like the perfect pair of stilettos – it’s got to be eye-catching and easy to remember. Strut your stuff with a clever, catchy title that’ll have people hitting that play button pronto.
  10. Promo Galore: Promote your podcast like you’re dropping the hottest album of the year. Flaunt it on social media, shout it from the rooftops, and let the world know you’re here to slay.
  11. Be a Tease: Tease your upcoming episodes like you’re dropping sneak peeks of your favorite TV show. Leave ’em hanging with a teaser trailer that has your listeners begging for more.
  12. Embrace Mistakes: Nobody’s perfect – not even Beyoncé! Embrace those slip-ups and giggle at yourself. Authenticity is the name of the game.
  13. Shout It from the Rooftops: Don’t be shy! Share your podcast with friends, family, and anyone who’ll listen. Yes social posts help but videos work FASTER for this industry. Keep in mind that word of mouth is the OG social media.
  14. Show Notes Charm: Rock out your show notes like you’re dressing up for a red-carpet event. Include bios, episode descriptions, time stamps, resource links and summary bullet points. Your listeners will love you for it!
  15. Have Fun Y’all: Last but not least, have a blast with your podcasting journey! Enthusiasm is contagious, and when you’re having fun, your listeners will feel it too.

Alright, you fierce podcast mavens, go forth and conquer the podcasting world! Happy podcasting from your friends at Octane! mic drop
