CS 6: How To Setup And Launch A Podcast

Today an update on the steps that I'm taking to setup and launch the Cloud Secrets Show.
How To Setup And Launch A Podcast
Hey. Hello. Marcel Martens here and welcome back to the Cloud Secrets blog. I promised you guys an updates on today. I didn’t choose the winning logo yet because I’m having a few doubts between two options so I’ll wait for a couple of days or maybe even a weekend and ask some more people for advice on what they think and then I’ll maybe pick one in the weekend or early next week.

I also finished up the intro for this podcast today. My audio guy, which I found on Fiverr, made the intro jingle on the back vocal. I don’t know what you call it. Background intro music? The intro is almost ready for the podcast and today I started with setting up our podcast stream. I use Libsyn. L-I-B-S-Y-N. You can start for five bucks and you can publish, I don’t know, 50 Mbs a month or I don’t know. It’s very cheap and you can distribute to all platforms. I use a little bit more advanced subscription there because I like to have some insights and since I’m producing content almost everyday, I also need a lot more storage to be able to upload all my episodes. That’s where we started.

Podcast Insights and statistics


The next steps would be to announce it to iTunes, the podcasts for Apple. The only thing that you need is at least three or five episodes, I believe, so I’m going to finish up the outro this weekend and then I can mix all the intros, all the episodes and the outros together and then I can upload them to Libsyn and from there we can publish them and then add them to iTunes or Apple podcasts. I also use SoundCloud for the android users and of course here in Europe, maybe even around the globe, I don’t know, Spotify is very popular, so I’m going to also apply to Spotify to allow or accept my podcast and take it in into their database so they can distribute it to all our Spotify users.

Podcast Publishing

And last but not least for today.
I started with the YouTube channel. Well, I’m going to put the videos inside my current channel so it’ll sticks together, but made the preparations there so we can make a Cloud Secrets playlists of some sort that you can all find all episodes chronologically there as well. Pretty busy day. Pretty enthusiastic big night ahead as well. 

The soccer season is started here today with the first match. We sponsor a local soccer team so tonight I’m going to go with a business relation and they’re going to take some people as well. I’m going to have a lovely night so picking up the kids now from daycare and then we’ll have a quick meal, quick shower, and then back off to football and a little bit of networking tonight. Have a nice weekend and I’ll see you next time.

Bye Bye. Marcel Martens.

  3. I just couldn’t go away your site prior to suggesting that I actually enjoyed the standard
    info an individual provide on your visitors? Is gonna be back continuously to
    check out new posts

  4. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a
    lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods
    to help stop content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

    • Hi, I hate people who copy, steal or use other peoples work. It’s not ethical, lame and dumb.
      I’m no legal adviser but I suggest to talk about copyright violations with your lawyer and see what you can do about it.
      I assume this is hurting your business? If not what is the problem of other people using bits and peaces to make more noise…
      That for you to decide. Good luck!

  5. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?

    A number of my blog audience have complained about my blog
    not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    • Hi and thank you very much!
      I hire freelancers all the time on and/or
      on those kind of sites you can easily find an expert who can make your site user friendly for “all” browsers and devices.
      I tent to start with mobile and then optimize for desktop.
      Good luck!

  6. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after
    browsing through many of the articles I realized it’s new
    to me. Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I stumbled upon it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!

    • Hi Marty,

      Thank you for tanking the time to respond 🙏 and I hope it helps you towards your next level!


  7. Please let me know if you’re looking for
    a writer for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I feel I would be a
    good asset. If you ever want to take some
    of the load off, I’d really like to write some articles for
    your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
    Please blast me an email if interested. Cheers!
