Podcasts are a great way to build a genuine connection with your audience. Instead of the fractured connections created through social media, podcasts allow you to engage your audience with your unique voice and content. In addition, podcasts are more convenient than blog posts; many people listen to podcasts while driving, working out, or doing chores around the house.
Do You Have to Spend Much Money to Create a Podcast with Your iPhone?
Many of my clients believe that you have to purchase expensive equipment and have a sound booth to podcast professionally. However, that is simply not the case.
While you can buy professional equipment such as microphones, software, and other podcast production software and hardware, you can easily record a podcast using your iPhone, an audio app, and a simple microphone.
Which Microphone Should I Use for Podcasting on my Apple iPhone?
You’ll want to check manufacturer specs when looking for a mic for your Apple iPhone to see if it’s compatible with your phone. Brands popular with podcasters because of their sound quality, durability, and ease of use are Rode, Audio-Technica, and Shure brand microphones.
Steps to Recording Your Podcast on Your Apple iPhone
First, you want to make sure you have an audio application to record when using your iPhone for recording your podcasts. Apple iPhones come with Voice Memos, which you can use to record your podcasts. With Voice Memos, you can record your audio, download the audio to your Google Drive, email the audio or send the audio via text message.
However, before you record your first episode, you’ll want to do a sound check with your new mic, play around recording, and find out how it works. When you perform your soundcheck, you’ll want to know how far away to position your phone and how loudly to speak to record in good audio quality.
