Here’s the thing – MOST PEOPLE do not know how to get to a podcast, how to access it or how to listen to it. MANY do not know what a podcast is. So if you have arrived here, you should know that you are not alone. Now that we have launched our podcast, I want to provide this simple How To page for the hundreds of people that have seen our announcements about the show but then privately sent a message to say “I’m dumb, I don’t know how to get your podcast” ….. Hundreds. feel better? And you’re not dumb.
WHAT IS A PODCAST?
It is an audio recording that you can listen to using a variety of apps, including just listening using the internet.
Think of it as a radio show that is not on a regular radio station. It is, instead, on the internet or available using a variety of apps that are designed to deliver music, video and podcasts to the people.
WHAT IS AN APP?
I know, you didn’t want to ask, but…
APP is short for Application. That just means a program, a piece of software. And in most cases when someone refers to an app, they mean a stand-alone piece of software that works on a cell phone. Most apps are created to work on an iPhone, a Windows device or on an Android phone. That’s why you always see these symbols but maybe never really paid attention to them.
SO WHAT ABOUT THE PODCAST???
Right, so you want to listen to a podcast. Most podcasters are loading their shows onto several websites and systems that are popular and each has their own APP that you can download onto your phone (or go to their website) to find our podcast and others on all kinds of topics. Here are some examples:
iTunes – This APP is owned by Apple and is most often used by people with iPhones. To get it, you go to the APP Store and download it. Once you have set up your account, you can find a lot of great podcasts. Ours is available on iTunes by searching for it (just search “Julie Niehoff” or search for “The Easy Marketing Guide”)
