This one hour FREE Introduction to Podcasting will be delivered online by Roger Gowdy. It will cover why your organisation needs podcast and how to get started.

If you have a message to tell the world, and an audience that needs to hear it, there is no better vehicle to make that happen right now than a podcast. It seems in 2023 that podcasts are everywhere... the number of people listening to podcasts in the UK has doubled in the last 4 years.

And that trend is only going one direction with the powerhouses of Spotify, Google, Apple and Amazon now fully invested in the growth of this medium. So, one thing is clear... podcasting is here to stay! This offers a huge opportunity for charities to share the brilliant work that they do while growing an audience of highly engaged and extremely loyal listeners.

But how on earth do you get started? What equipment do you need? How much does it cost? How much time does it take? How do you reach your audience?

While podcasting, at its core, is very straightforward, it can be daunting getting started, with plenty of potential pitfalls along the way.

Content of session

In this short FREE introductory webinar, we will cover all the things you need to think about in preparing to launch a podcast, including:

  • Deciding whether to start a podcast
  • Choosing a podcast format

  • Growing your audience

It is designed for those who are thinking of starting a podcast for their organisation and would like to find out more.
