By Ravi Jayagopal | Audio , Digital Creators , Video

If you are digital marketer or digital products creator, then you are creating a bunch of Audio, Video, PDF and other kinds of files - like mindmaps, powerpoints, docs, zips, etc - for your content marketing, online courses, lead magnets and maybe just for SEO.

And I wrote about Why You Should NEVER Host Video or Audio On Your Own Website.

And no, Google Drive or Dropbox are not suitable for that either - they're for mostly one-off use, and not for mass-distribution, and their terms of service kinda make it a bad idea. I explain it all here.

4 tips for better Audio​

It's better to put just a little bit of thought and effort BEFORE you hit record, rather than try to fix bad audio in post-production. Remember "GIGO" - garbage in, garbage out. People will tolerate a little bit of poor lighting or slightly choppy video, but not many will tolerate bad audio.

If you showed people the video of a person using nails on a chalkboard, without the audio, they won't be too bothered by it. Then try playing the sound of nails on a chalkboard, and you'll see people cringe and go crazy. That's because audio can impact us more emotionally, than video. Which is why, podcasts are such a powerful way to build a deeper connection with your audience.
