PodBubble makes starting a business podcast easy.

We help you to record audio directly into your smartphone, then upload the audio to our website for editing, audio processing and sharing. This way, you won’t need to edit any audio files before uploading them because we can do the time-consuming work for you thus making it really easy to start a business podcast.

And yes, it’s great to record your podcast audio using a smartphone because it frees you up to record anywhere that’s quiet and free of background noise.

Recording your business podcast audio at home, in the office or even in the car means that you can get your thoughts recorded when the inspiration strikes.

And recording with a smartphone makes business podcasting possible even for those of you who don’t have enough time.

You know that all you have to do is share that audio with Podbubble and we’ll upload your completed episode – fully edited, compressed and EQ’d – to Apple Podcasts, Spotify and any other platforms of your choice. There’s never been a better time to start a business podcast.

We even create original music for your intro and outro as part of our starter package.

Step 1: Choose A Topic For Your First Business Podcast

If you’re passionate about something, chances are that others will be too. So choose a topic that you’re interested in and share your knowledge with others. I was amazed at the diversity of podcasts that are available on platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify. There really is something for every single micro-niche out there. In fact, the phrase ‘micro-niche’ doesn’t even begin to describe it… think micro-micro-MICRO-niche!

And don’t listen to anybody who tells you that your idea for a podcast has already been done because it simply does not matter. When a listener is passionate about something they will consume every related podcast they can get their hands on and yours will be one of them.

Step 2: Create The Audio Files For Your Business Podcast

Once you’ve chosen a topic, you need to record yourself talking about it. You can use any recording device that you like, such as an iPhone, iPad, or computer microphone. I’m a big fan of recording with a smartphone because it allows you to make a recording as soon as inspiration strikes. There’s no ‘waiting until later’ or ‘setting up equipment’. You can just hit record and go – at home, in the office, in the car, walking the dog!

And this ease of recording has a big impact on the quality of your content. Too many people get stressed-out about having the best microphone and the best recording quality yet give very little thought to their content. But it’s content that counts!

So the next time inspiration strikes, grab your phone, hit record and start talking. If you want to know if your audio quality is good enough, upload it at podbubble.com for a free audio health check. We’ll let you down gently if it’s awful… promise!

Step 3: Send Your Audio To Podbubble

The simplest way to start a business podcast is to hand the production over to Podbubble. We’ll take your audio and edit it, removing unwanted sounds and reducing background noise. Next, we’ll improve the audio quality and warm the sound of your voice. We do this by removing any unwanted frequencies and thus improving the tone. And then we’ll compress the audio to achieve industry-standard levels of loudness before assembling it all with the original intro music that we’ll write for you.

Once we’ve done all of this, we’ll upload your finished episode to your chosen platforms. But before we do we’ll ask you to approve the episode first.

Step 4: Check Your Inbox

As soon as we’ve assembled your podcast episode we’ll message you and ask you to approve it. Don’t worry, we won’t be uploading anything that you’re not happy with!

Step 5: Share With The World

Let your customers, followers, subscribers and friends know about your latest episode!

There you have it! It really is that simple. The hardest part is the editing, audio processing and uploading but Podbubble can take care of that for you. So start recording!
