Should I Start a Podcast?
So you’re looking to start a podcast. Congratulations, you have come to the right place.
You might be feeling a little overwhelmed.
What equipment do I buy? How do I get guests for my show?
How do I record a phone call or skype call? How do I get my show into places like Apple iTunes/Podcasts and Spotify?
What about Amazon Alexa? Are people going to listen to me? How will they find me?
There is so much noise on the Internet and if you ask a question in a Facebook group you leave even more confused.
There are YouTube videos from years ago filled with bad advice.
I started the School of Podcasting to ensure you are not wasting your time, money, and sanity. Podcasting can change the lives of you and your audience but not if it never gets recorded and published. Don’t die with your message in you.
Avoid These Mistakes
Your Podcast Sounds Awful
Buying the Wrong Equipment
Paying Too Much for the Equipment
Using a Free Media Host (sounds good right? Wrong!)
Failure to list your show in all the directories
Exporting your show in the wrong format
Not defining your “why” or target audience
and many more…

Who is Dave Jackson?
I am a Hall of Fame podcaster who has started over 20 podcasts starting in 2005.
I test systems, tools, and I know what works and what doesn’t.
I’ve been an educator for over 20 years.
Before that, I was an award-winning customer service manager.
Education, customer service, and podcasting are my biggest passions.
In 2005 I took a blog for musicians and turned it into my first podcast. I fell in love with podcasting and launched the School of Podcasting.
Over the years I’ve added over 30 shows and appeared on over 3000 episodes with more than 3 million downloads.
The School of Podcasting has over 2 Million downloads and was the 2017 winner of the People Podcast Award in the technology category.
Because of my podcast I’ve been a featured and keynote speaker. I’ve been on television and authored books, and I’ve contributed monthly columns to magazines.
I’ve received job offers, free samples, and am I’m now seen as a leader in my field. I want to help you do the same.
In 2016 I started a job at Libsyn.com the oldest and largest Podcast Media Hosting company. This gives me a view of podcasting ( and what people are tripping over) that no other podcast consultant has.
I can with a clear conscience say I’ve helped more people with their podcast than any other person on the planet.
In 2018, I was inducted into the Academy of Podcasters Hall of Fame.

What if I have more questions?
There is a special “members only” email address that is the hotline to my inbox. You’re never alone. We also have two live webinars each month.
Do I Have To Join The Facebook Group?
No. Not everyone is a fan of Facebook. While it is a great community, if you’re not interested any major announcements are done via email.
Start Your Podcast Today
I started in 2005 in the basement next to the water heater. I wasn’t sure if anyone would ever listen to me. I’ve been hired for different jobs, and I’ve been blessed with many, many other opportunities in my 14 years of podcasting. None of them compare to getting the email from a listener who thought he had cancer, just been fired from his job, and his best friend had suddenly passed away. His message said he had decided to take his life until he heard me say that podcasting can give your life purpose. He decided to wait and start a podcast, and now he no longer wants to end his life.
Podcasting has changed my life in so many ways. Join today and see how much a podcast can transform your life, your relationships, and your business.
