There are so many steps in podcasting that it is best to use a project and task management tool to make sure you complete each step.
Asana is my favorite tool for managing podcasts.
Asana is vital when it comes to episode management. For example, if you release episodes each week, you’ll get into a routine, but with several steps, you create a task for each, so you don’t miss anything. You can track everything from planning each episode to recording, editing, and promotion.
As you develop your podcast, write down each task you need to complete. Not only will it help you as you launch, release episodes, or manage gusts, but it will help a podcast manager if you eventually outsource.
