How to Start a Podcast About Technology
Tips on Making Your Technology Podcast a Success
Whether you want to start a podcast about technology to promote your own tech business or whether you want to do it just to have some fun, there are a variety of things that you need to be doing to get your show up and running, and then to attract an audience to listen. If you don’t, your podcast will never be the success you have long envisaged it being, and you’ll never be able to share your thoughts on the technology of today as a result.
To see what you should be doing to start your podcast about technology in the best, most fruitful way possible, check out the points below.
Be correct and consistent in all aspects of your show
The chances are that, because it’s such a niche subject, the audience that your podcast will attract will know a thing or two about technology themselves even before they listen to you. For this reason, you have to be correct with everything that you say and do on your show, as that is the only way you are going to harness any credibility for yourself. Without credibility, you will have no chance of running a show, so make sure you are only ever speaking about pieces of tech that you know about or have done extensive research on.
You also need to be consistent as a podcast host, whether you have prior experience at doing so or not. To do this, you should make sure you are issuing a show that is uploaded and made available at regular intervals, for example, once monthly.
Provide information about the latest devices
Technology is very much about now, and, therefore, unless you are hosting a specific show about the vintage tech of the past, you need to be providing information about all the latest devices. To find out what tech you should be talking about on any given show, why not put that question to your listeners and find out what it is they want to be hearing from you?
Of course, this could mean you have to talk about a device that you know nothing about, but, as you have to adhere to what your audience wants, it means you’ll have to do some research. If you were asked to open up a discussion about IoT devices in the medical profession, for instance, then you’d have to set about finding out everything there is to know about the Internet of Things healthcare devices from IoTS Solutions World Congress. Whether you want to or not, this type of research is something you will have to be doing if you want to be successful with your show.
Talk about upcoming technology events
Specific technological devices shouldn’t be your only topic of discussion, as your audience will want to hear about upcoming events in the field of it just as much. To again use the Internet of Things as an example, you should be taking it upon yourself to provide all the information you can about the leading IoT blockchain event that is currently upcoming. By endorsing such an event in such a way, you never know, you might bag yourself a free-of-charge invite! Of course, networking is essential at such events, so you can find out more information to provide your listeners with, which is why you should not only talk about the events, but attend them too.
To be a successful podcast host is tough enough, but to be one that only discusses a niche subject like technology is something else entirely. If you think you’ve got what it takes, then set that microphone up and go ahead and do it!
