Acast, the world’s leading independent podcast company, announces the launch of Aclass Essentials, a free online toolkit for creators including everything they need to know to start and build a successful podcast.

From mic-technique to marketing, this how-to guide contains the essential information for anyone taking the leap into podcasting, or podcasters seeking to up their game.

The free resource pulls together expertise from Acast’s experts worldwide, and has been designed to equip anyone who wants to start their own podcast with the knowledge they need to produce great, original audio content from home. Best of all, it also features tips and tricks from world-renowned podcasters from the Acast Creator Network — including Fearne Cotton, The Art of Decluttering, Scroobius Pip, and the team behind The Log Books.

Acast first launched its “Aclass” initiative in 2019, with a series of events empowering new creators to find their voice in podcasting — and this new toolkit underlines its commitment to supporting creators of all sizes.

Chapters in Aclass Essentials include:

  • Research & Scripting
  • Interviewing
  • Recording
  • Editing
  • Promotion & Growth
  • Monetizing

Veronika Taylor, SVP of Acast’s Creator Network, said: We honestly believe that anyone can have a great idea for a podcast — but we also appreciate that not everyone knows where to start. To help the next generation of superstar podcasters get recording we created Aclass Essentials, giving them all the information they need to bring their idea to life, and to share their stories with the world. We can’t wait to hear what they come up with.”

Acast is home to more than 35,000 podcasts, who use its world-class products, tools and services to grow and monetize their shows to their full potential. Whether you’re new to podcasting, an experienced pro, or a publisher or network, Acast helps you get heard, get ahead, and get paid.
