3 Instant Takeaways

  1. Edit your podcast. Edit out the music, the announcements, altar calls, and even parts of the message if it’s long. You want to optimize your podcast for the medium so add intros and outros, church promos, contact information and subtract any places in the message that drag. One thing to avoid is time-sensitive information that will outdate quickly if people listen to your podcast long after it is recorded.
  2. Enhance your podcast. People are accustomed to effects on audio media (such as the radio) that aren’t commonly used during a live sermon. So why not utilize the media to its fullest and add extras to it. Music, interviews, sounds, and voice enhancement are all possibilities on the podcast template that you can find in the show notes.
  3. Share your podcast. Submit your podcast to ITunes so that people can subscribe to it and become regular listeners. Get a backlog of a few sermons, navigate to the podcast section of ITunes, submit your podcast feed, which is a URL created by your audio program, and ITunes will let you know when it’s been processed and is ready for your audience.
