When I was getting ready to launch I was planning on doing my own editing for a while before outsourcing. One afternoon of swearing at the software later and I realised I needed to outsource NOW, and that there wasn't much time left pre-launch! The service has always been great, they are ever-helpful, and give me feedback that helps make the show better too.
I can always rely on Music Radio Creative for Radio jingles. I’ve been using them for years and find them more professional than the big more expensive jingle companies. I ordered a Radio jingle Friday Morning (Expected it a week later) and amazingly it was in my email that night and sounded perfect! Fantastic service and i honestly can’t recommend them enough.
I’ve been really impressed with everything from pricing to production quality, voice artist options and extremely fast delivery times (I never expected the recording process to start so soon after order confirmation!). However, the most pleasing thing for me is the excellent customer service. Friendly and professional attitude, as well as ability to understand exactly what I’m looking for, has made the ordering process extremely easy. No matter where you are in the world (I'm based in Sydney) and whether you’re a large professional organisation or a one person operation, Music Radio Creative seem to cater for all requirements and I would recommend anyone to give these guys a try. My podcast is still a work in progress at the moment but the DJ drops are certainly making it sound more professional.

Podcast Intro - Where To Start?
It's THE most important audio branding element in your podcast. It's important to get it right. Start with a written script for a voice over. Include podcast name, host name and a killer reason on why this podcast is so good over others. Include details on who it's for so that your listeners immediately identify with the target audience. Once your script is ready, send it over to our team. We can take a look it, suggest some adjustments and help you choose the right voice and music for it.
How Long Does It Take To Create a Podcast Intro?
Well, it can be as fast as 24h if you are in a hurry! Typically our work takes approx 1-3 working days. Voice over will record your script, we quality control it, send it to our producer to add music and sound effects if you have selected those. We then quality control once again and then send over to you to enjoy.
What Is a Podcast?
A podcast is essentially an audio programme, similar to a standard radio show. But rather than tuning in, listeners download or stream episodes on a computer or smartphone, and listen at a time and in a place to suit them. Podcasters offer listeners a broad range of content, from popular subjects to something rather more niche, and these broadcasts are easier to create and distribute than a radio show. It’s a highly accessible way of reaching new audiences.
Do I Need To Edit My Podcast?
Ideally yes, you certainly should. Indeed, editing is a vital part of the podcasting process if you’re keen on giving your listeners a top-quality broadcast. And we’ve written about this previously. So it’s definitely worth learning about the relevant software and having a few practice edits.
How To Get Guests On Your Podcast?
It’s definitely great if you can get a guest podcaster. Doing so enriches your content, draws new subscribers in and provides expert information, while also promotes networking. As for how you can get them involved, search traditional media (newspapers, radio and TV) as well as the web (YouTube is a good source) and social media. Who has done research or recently written a book in your specialist area? Equally, don’t be shy when it comes to being a guest on someone else’s podcast to boost your industry credibility and reputation. Either accept an invitation to speak – or invite yourself!
Downloading vs Streaming a Podcast
When you download a podcast episode, the audio file is stored on your device, so if your Wi-Fi or 4G signal is interrupted, you’ll still be able to listen. Downloading podcasts clearly uses up storage room on your device. Streaming means the content is broadcast to your device in real time, and for this you’ll need an uninterrupted internet connection.
How To Come Up With Ideas For Your Podcast?
It’s always good to have a process for coming up with ideas for fresh content. Brainstorming can help, as can doing your research so that you understand your audience and what they need and want to listen to. Grab a pen and paper or open a blank computer document and give yourself up to two minutes to write down everything that comes to mind. Don’t hesitate or cross out – just keep writing. And have your audience firmly in mind throughout. You can also use external tools such as Ahrefs to learn what people may be searching for in your niche. It's an expert tool, so may not be for you if you are just starting out!
Podcast Intro Music vs Podcast Introductions With a Voice Actor
There are two schools of thought. You can either start your podcast with a catchy tune or use a voice over to enhance on your podcast brand identity. Both are absolutely fine and the choice does depend on your preference. It is worth to take into account your target demographic too. Start a podcast with a well chosen piece of music and you can transform your listener in time and space without a single word. Good podcast intro plays on emotions, links entire brand identity together and sets the tone for the episode ahead.
How To Come Up With a Great Podcast Name?
People often ask us this! Essentially, you want to keep names short and sweet (ideally four words or fewer), and easy to pronounce. Think here of your podcast brand identity that will work great in an audio podcast as well as youtube videos. Equally, make sure they haven’t been already used and are not copyrighted or trademarked. There are online tools such as the Podcast Name Generator, which may be helpful. But whatever you go for, keep it succinct and intriguing.

Music And Sound Effects In Your Podcast Intro
You can enhance your podcast intro by adding sound and vocal effects to your brand identity. Sound effects could be very niche specific (hammer for lawyers, ambience of a specific environment (such as traffic, market, forest etc). OR they can be whooshes, electric snaps etc. The choice is yours! Vocal effects can add depth to the voice and help keep engagement in longer scripts read by a voice actor. If in doubt - ask our team of audio specialists - we are here to help you make the right choice!
