What Podcast Creation and the “À La Carte Menu” Have In Common

The importance of flexibility when choosing the right services to create and promote your podcast

When I’m at a cafe or restaurant for the first time, I like to order a lot of different things from the menu. Some restaurants call it “à la carte.” I call it the sides menu. Same. Same. This way of ordering is beneficial in a few ways for me;

  • It allows me to sample items on the menu to get a feel for the overall style of the restaurant.
  • I only pay for what I want to eat.
  • It’s usually the most cost and resource-effective.

À la carte means “referring to food that can be ordered as separate items, rather than part of a set meal.” This gives the foodie a choice and again, they only pay for what they want. If you’ve ever ordered a main course meal and didn’t want something in there like the veggies or the white rice you know what I’m talking about. The ability to assemble your meal is a great thing.

Similar to a restaurant, we feel with podcasting there should be a choice. The choice to make it as dynamic or as simple as you want. Podcasting is still new for most brands, and a lot of people are trying to figure out how to make it their own. Because of how unique it is, we think you should be able to do it how you want. That’s why we’ve created a very extensive services menu to hopefully give you the exact service you need to create the best podcast.

The Pod Paste Process Overview

If you are thinking about creating a podcast, congratulations! Why congratulations? Well, besides the fact that podcasting is pretty damn cool, you have taken the first step into being a creator. Creators are cool because they are okay with failure. Failure is the only way to success. It’s like a scientist seeking data points to prove or disprove their hypothesis.

Outside of the creator/failure/success philosophical loop that we love to talk about here at Pod Paste, there is another element to creating. That element is the process. Most things that we like to do have a process whether you know it or not.

Within that process, there is usually consistency, habits, systems, templates, and routines. This process can be different for different people but we like to follow a tried and true process when we help people create their podcasts.

The Process

A super quick overview of each part is below and if you are interested we go into depth on each part in separate posts located at the end of this. Obviously, like most things in the world that we offer, you can go sequentially or bounce around a la carte style to whatever interests you.
