Daily podcasts are a lot more common than they used to be. You might find the thought of running one appealing, but also think to yourself “there’s no way I’d have time to podcast every single day”. Well, the good news is that you don’t have to.
You can actually create a short sharp 1-2min episode a day podcast in only a few hours a week. We’ve found that the scripting, recording, production, and publishing take us approximately 3 hours for a week of content (a week being Monday-Friday). As these tasks are “batched” we’re not tending to this podcast every single day, even though new episodes are always dropping.
There are a lot of benefits of doing short daily episodes. If you teach something then it’ll give you the ability to deliver your lessons in bite-sized (or pocket-sized!) chunks. You can take a real deep dive over a period of time, rather than trying to pack together one huge lesson or talk. You might even turn your daily podcast into an Alexa Flash Brief.
Short episodes are also great for repurposing. This works well if you’re active on YouTube, social media, or taking a Content Stacking approach to your show.
On this episode of Podcraft, we talk more about the benefits and workflows of running a daily podcast. We’ll also help you answer the question of whether you should make one yourself.
And as for our own case study, it’s something you’ll hopefully be interested in checking out, too…
