Most people get in to podcasting because they have something to say. They have a message, and they want to share it with the world.
And, though there’s more to podcasting than just getting behind the mic and hitting record, all of these other tasks are often seen as necessary rather than enjoyable.
Of all the jobs involved, there are two that seem to cause the most grief among podcasters of all levels of experience.
Whether you call it editing, mixing, or post-production, there are a few reasons why you might dread this stage of making an episode.
Some find it difficult, time consuming, or just flat-out boring.
There’s also the question of how much editing do I actually need to do in my podcast anyway?
Even taking a minimum effective editing approach involves opening up the DAW, and just the thought of that can lead some podcasters to procrastination and even podfading.
You probably didn’t get into an audio medium like podcasting for the thought of sitting knocking out 400-500 word blog posts every other week.
And whilst some podcasters love to write, others could really do without it.
But whether you’re writing bullet points or something more akin to a small ebook, they’re still going to require your time and attention.
You might be tempted to quote the immortal words of Homer Simpson – “Can’t someone else do it?”
The good news is that there’s a plethora of business and freelancers out there who’ll edit, write shownotes, and offer a whole range of other podcasting services on top of that.
Sometimes having too much choice is hard work in itself though, so if you’re in the mood to delegate everything, let us pick out some options for you.
