If it were not for podcasts, people such as Joe Rogan or Dan Carlin, might not be as notable as they are today. Podcasts are really easy to make, and if you have a story to tell, its guaranteed someone will listen to you. iTunes makes debuting a podcast as simple as uploading a sound file.
Make an Business Apple ID
Here is the first link you will need to visit. Make a account, separate from your main Apple Id, just to keep a professional appearance. Once you fill that information out, and confirm your email, you are well on your way.
Make A Sound Cloud Account
Once you have recorded your podcast, your going to need to store it somewhere. Make a Sound Cloud account here. Once that’s done, upload your files, and the necessary artwork. Artwork is mandatory to be published on iTunes, so make sure their policies are followed. After you upload your files to Sound Cloud, your going to need the RSS feed that Sound Cloud generates for you, automatically, and free. To reach that RSS feed, while on Sound Cloud, hit the three dots and then settings.
Once in settings, there are four tabs at the top of the screen. The RSS feed is located under the “Content” tab. Once the Content Tab is clicked, a field will appear with the URL to your RSS feed. Take that link, and copy it to your clipboard.
Upload RSS Feed to iTunes
Now, you have everything needed in order to submit a podcast to iTunes. Your last step is to paste the RSS URL into iTunes. With your new fancy Apple Id created in step one, visit this link and log into the podcast dashboard. Now take your RSS url and put it in the field labeled RSS feed.
Once you successfully submit your podcast will be reviewed and a “Submitted for Review” message will appear underneath the podcast. And once the Podcast is approved, you will see a green “Active” message underneath the podcast.
As shown above, publishing a Podcast is really quite easy. That being said, this is just for publishing the document. Creating the podcast isnt that easy, but can be easy as hitting record, and uploading to Sound Cloud. This route is most likely the best route for those who are new to podcasts, and are looking for a easy method to test the waters. Although this method is suitable for enterprise set ups.
