① MORE CASH IN YOUR POCKET
No one can deny that DIY can be a bit easier on the wallet. You can nab some decent gear without busting your budget and turn any quiet corner into your podcast paradise.
② FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY
Want to record in your PJs at 2am? No problem. DIY means you set the rules.
① DODGY SOUND
While you can snag some good gear for less, it's not going to measure up to the pros. And believe us, listeners notice. Dodgy audio can be a fast track to losing an audience.
② JACK OF ALL TRADES, MASTER OF NONE
Doing it all sounds great, until you realise "it all" includes recording, editing, sound engineering, promoting, and everything else in between. It's a lot of hats to wear and can take away from your main goal: creating killer content.
③ FLYING SOLO
Unless you're a hidden audio genius, you might find yourself struggling to nail the technical bits without a bit of expert guidance.
Now, let's take a look at the other side - renting a professional podcast studio, like the ones we've got at Producey over in Richmond.
① TOP-NOTCH AUDIO QUALITY
At Producey, we've got all the high-end gear you need, from Rodecaster Pro 2s to Shure SM7B mics, and even soundproof walls. Your podcast will sound so good, listeners might think you've kidnapped David Attenborough.
② A HELPING HAND
Not only do you get a cracking studio, but you also get a team of experts ready to have your back. Technical difficulties? They've got it sorted. Need editing help? Done. Want a coffee? Well, you might have to get that one yourself.
③ MAKE IT YOUR OWN
We've got studios for every occasion, and you can dress them up how you like. Bring your own props, graphics, even your nan’s old armchair if you fancy.
① GOTTA SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY
Hiring a professional studio is an investment, but remember, you get what you pay for - top gear, expert help, professional output and support.
You may not be able to jump straight into recording when inspiration calls, however booking an intentional space will allow you have a distraction free space that let’s you focus on creating content that your listeners love.
When it comes down to it, you've got to ask yourself what matters most. If you want to save a few bucks and fancy the challenge, then maybe DIY is the way to go.
But if you want your podcast to sound slick and professional right off the bat, and you value having some top-notch support, renting a studio like Producey could be just the ticket.
Whichever route you take, remember the end goal: creating epic content that your listeners can't get enough of.
