Starting a podcast and want your own custom domain name?
Or maybe you don’t want your podcast’s website to be at thebestpodcast.libsyn.com but instead be at thebestpodcast.com.
That second version is much easier to remember or share, and you’re not promoting another company (that you’re already paying, by the way) in the process.
Cool, we decided to want to register a domain name, how do we do it?

You’ll typically get your RSS feed from your podcast hosting company. This is by far the easiest way to create a podcast RSS feed. Details below.
Or you can get (or create) your feed from your own website if you use something like Squarespace or the PowerPress plugin for WordPress.
Make sure you don’t upload your audio files directly to website host (with Squarespace being the one exception) as that will cause major issues. You will need to host your .mp3’s with a dedicated podcast host.

Thinking of starting a podcast and want to know how podcasters make money?
Or do you already have a podcast and are looking for ways to increase your earnings?
Good news, there are many different ways to monetize a podcast…
Some work well when you are just getting started, and others work best once you’re more established and have a larger audience.
Either way, you’ll find at least one way to make money podcasting no matter what stage you’re at.
Whether you’re shooting video or recording a new podcast episode, you need to make sure you have great audio quality.
The good news is that for the last couple years, video quality included with your Android smartphone is probably top-notch.
But the built-in microphone in your Galaxy or Pixel phone just won’t cut it.
There are several excellent external microphones that will work with your Android phone – and there are different styles depending on your needs.
The most popular option that works well in a variety of situations is a lavalier mic (they clip to your shirt, allowing hands-free use) but there are a few shotgun-style mics that plug into the headphone jack (if you have one) as well.
This post will just focus on microphones that don’t need adapters to keep things simple, but I wanted to point out that there are many options to improve your audio quality.
We also have a separate article specifically for iPhone mics (with many options that use the Lightning connector) if you find yourself needing one of those too. [Read more…] about Best External Android Microphones For Video & Podcasting 2018
