Zoom Dive Recordings | Getting started with podcasts

Thinking about starting a podcast for your creative business? It’s a brilliant idea – podcasting can act as a valuable promotional tool, helping you build authority in your niche, increase visibility and grow your audience. It can also provide another business income stream and give you a creative outlet to express your thinking and knowledge.

Getting your show up and running, however, can seem a bit daunting, especially if you’re not a ‘techy’ person. How exactly do you start one? What equipment do you need? Do you need to invest much money and time to make your podcast successful?

David Pérez knows the answers to these questions – and so many more. He’s a full-time podcast producer and the founder of Talking Silkworm, a business that supports Health and Wellness Coaches, and Business Coaches, to start and publish their own podcasts. He’s also the host of Audience Coach, a podcast produced by Talking Silkworm.
