http://www.smartpassiveincome.com – This is the 4th of a series of videos I created to help you get your podcast up and running.

In this particular video, we talk about web hosting and media hosting, and I help you understand why it’s important to host your .mp3s for your podcast on a server other than your website’s server.

  1. At 4:18 you say there will be a video teaching how to set up a blog in wordpress and host it at bluehost, but I can't find it.

  2. Brother silly question but what software do I use to produce a video like you're doing right now? Presentation video to go with voice only Podcast? Speak slowly I'm a stroke survivor! lol Hopefully launching my Podcast "I'm Injured Not Stupid" in around 4 months. I think the worlds first?

  3. I "joined" your video tutorials at this point, Pat, as this is the stuff that I don't know about and need to know. Congratulations and thanks for such a clear, concise and helpful video – it has helped me a LOT!.

  4. #moviethisguy I find it really interesting that I've yet to find any videos on youtube that simply, literally shows how to upload a podcast. This video was educational enough but why is nobody ever making a video of them uploading a podcast? Is it some sort of secret or is it just a common knowledge that everyone should understand? @Pascal Stifani

  5. Question: you said "at the end of the month it clears out and I get a new 250" does that mean there is no archiving?

  6. You can't host a podcast with wordpress for free. You have to have at least the premium plan.

  7. THANK YOU Pat. Great instructional series and it didn't cost me a dollar. Immense value!!

  8. I find it very interesting that I have yet to find a video that shows me exactly how to listen to a podcast. is this something I should already know or what?

  9. Libsyn no longer offers the full range of stats in the video for the $15/mo option…..you have to go with the 400MB service.
    250MB just cuts it too thin…Soundcloud has unlimited upload for $15 and includes full range of stats.

  10. Thanks for the video Pat, I was wondering, when hosting with Libsyn monetization is optional right? I want to put my own audio and visual advertising on my podcast but they dont allow that with Monetisation. Many thanks in advance…

  11. I find it really interesting that I've yet to find any videos on youtube that simply, literally shows how to upload a podcast.

  12. are there any free media host? I just need one that lets me embed so I can add it to my WordPress blog post. I just want to try I really do not have the money to pay for anything. Thanks.

  13. Hi Pat,
    Great stuff as always!
    What software are you using to be able to write on the screen as a whiteboard?
    And what camera do you use, they are great quality, do you have extra lighting?
    Cheers
    Chuck

  14. I am regaining my composure in podcasting endeavors this year, and I cannot currently subscribe to Libsyn because of budget size, although I think if you are going to go with an inexpensive podcast server, Libsyn is the ONE.  I am currently using Pod-O-matic because I can get started right away, which also allows you to link your account to iTunes through your account (Pod-O-Matic) RSS feed.  Once my budget allows it, I will definitely go back to Libsyn, I love their player (you can embed in your post), the ease of using their website, everything about it! I did my first podcast today after a year or so, and I sound absolutely horrible, but I think the more I do the better I will sound. Thanks Pat for the encouragement!

  15. If you already have a domain with "Hover" would this be the exact same as using "Blue Host" or is their specific perks you get by podcasting using Blue Host rather than any other for your Host? Or is a Host just a Host.?  

  16. Enjoying your videos a lot. Great job. I host a podcast and blog called AvA Live Radio about new music artists and entrepreneurs. This is super helpful.

  17. THANK YOU for such a comprehensive, clear explanation of how the various hosts, feeds, etc., relate to each other.  I jumped in at #4, but I'll def be watching ALL the others!  What app were you using for your whiteboard?  

  18. To do a podcast do I have to have a personal website??? Can I just upload my podcast to a host site like libsyn and just let people download it from there???

  19. I used your SPI coupon without even knowing it existed haha i was just like hmmm I wonder if there's a discount and now I've found it on this video lol
