WHAT'S IN A NAME? EVERYTHING
When making the decision on what to call your podcast show, please take your time. Choosing a name or show title is very important and should not be rushed.
Once you have something that looks and feels right, do yourself a favor and do multiple searches on the internet and Apple Podcasts.
You would be amazed at how many times people pick the exact same name as someone else. While you may think that the name you've chosen is original and is perfect for you, chances are someone else has claimed it already.
If you do not do a proper and thorough search, trust me, you will regret it later. Imagine how you will feel after you've invested all this time and money setting up your podcast, just to discover that someone else has the exact same name.
And what if it's really really bad and it's getting horrific reviews? Your show will be virtually tied to something that is not so positive, but you could also be infringing on someone else's trademarked name. It's just not worth it!
So please do your research.
And if you need assistance on developing the name for the show, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be happy to work with you on that.
The other thing you want to do, and I tell every single client that I work with, is you want to register your domain name of the podcast.
Yes, you want to have a website associated with it.
Personally I use Google Domains. It's only a few dollars to register it and requires a low cost annual payment to keep it active. Once you have your domain there are several affordable options to host your website. But you definitely want a companion website for your Podcast.
My companion website is http://www.OutOfTheBoxWithChristine.com and it's a place where people can find past episodes and easily subscribe to their preferred podcast delivery platform.
Hope you enjoy this episode of The Micro Podcast on Podcasting - if you'd like to work with me on creating your own Podcast visit http://www.ChristineBlosdale.com and drop me an email.
