Making a Podcast Website is Hard!
On top of doing everything you need to do to get your podcast ready, now you need to figure out how to build a website. That includes buying a domain, choosing hosting, actually building the website, and then launching your podcast. This can get overwhelming if you don’t know what you’re doing. Luckily, this course will guide you from start to finish, with no steps skipped. At the end, you’ll have your very own podcast website.
Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone who needs a good, flexible, fully customizable podcast website. If you’re just starting out and want a strong website for you show, transcripts, and blog, you’ll learn how to do all of that.
