Are you a huge comic book fan? Do you love talking about your opinions on comic books?
Then I am sure you would love to have a comic book podcast. It is a great way to discuss your favorite comic books. And there are so many comic book fans who I bet would love to hear them.
So, today we’re going to talk about what you’ll need to do in order to start your podcast.
Choose Your Focus
You’ll need to decide what the focus of your podcast is. It could be about comic books in general. It could get more specific, like Marvel or DC comics. Or you could get even more specific like about a character like Batman, Spiderman, or Superman, or about a group of characters like the X-Men or Guardians of the Galaxy. It could be about specific themes in comic books, like women in comic books, LGBTQ+ representation in comics, or comparisons of comic book movies with the actual comic books. You could also make reviews of new comic books. You could highlight independent, lesser-known comic books. Or you could interview comic book artists. The possibilities are endless.
Decide If You Want To Make Money From Your Podcast
Another thing you need to do before you get started is you need to decide if you want to make money from your podcast. Because even if you are thinking about doing it as a hobby, this is something you should consider. You could make a lot of money from your podcast.
Yes, you read that right. You could get sponsors that make sense for your podcast, like comic books or comic cons. Or you could make money from affiliate sales. We go over that and other ways to earn money from your podcast here.
So if you do decide you want to make money from your podcast, you’ll need to protect yourself legally. I suggest getting an LLC. That is why I have done whenever I have started a business. We go over the advantages of starting an LLC here.
