Audio Tips For Online Marketers


audio tipsHi everyone,

Last week I had intended to record a video containing a few audio tips for online Marketers. However, I’d completely forgotten that my latest podcast was due so I had to put the audio tips video on hold and swiftly get to work on recording the podcast.

So, better late than never, this week’s post features the planned audio tips video.

The reason I decided to record this is that I’ve noticed a lot of Marketers, despite trying their best, still struggle with getting a good sound on their videos, in their podcasts, in their mp3s and so on.

Through no fault of their own, even with a good microphone many Marketers find their audio to be below par.

So here’s a video that outlines a few important tips that you can implement if you want to use audio in your online marketing.

It’s by no means comprehensive, but I tried to cover some simple basic tips that will hopefully help you if you find that your audio needs a little tweaking.



So, hopefully that was useful to you and you’ll be able to implement some of those tips when recording your audio.

As I mentioned in the video, if there’s anything else that you’d like me to cover in a video then please feel free to suggest it in the comments below.

  1. Hi Glenn,

    Thank you so much for the helpful tips for me to use with audio marketing, most importantly podcasts.

    I still need to purchase a microphone and would like your help to find the right one. Can you suggest a good one?

    I am not ready to do podcasts yet but will be in the near future. I’m going to save this blog post as I have with many of your other blog posts so I can pull them up when I need to use them or I could go to your categories search bar on your blog. and search for them there. Just in case, I save them.

    Thank you again Glenn, awesome video!

    You have a wonderful weekend,

    1. Hi Linda,

      A lot will depend on your budget. Some of the best microphones for doing things like podcasting come from Blue, for example: Snowball, Snowball iCE, Yeti or Nessie. If you want just a basic, cheap, but good mic, then you can’t go wrong with the Snowball iCE. If you can afford to spend a bit more then the Nessie is an an excellent, versatile mic than comes with a lot of clever, built-in features that will automatically adapt to and enhance your sound.

      On a non-audio related note, if you have a lot of pages, posts, articles, etc that you come across online and want to save, Evernote is perfect for that. You can get it for free and you then simply tell it to ‘clip’ what you want it to save and it will save it for you, even syncing your info across devices if necessary. I have a whole ream of resources saved in Evernote by doing this. 🙂

      Thanks for your visit and comment, Linda. I hope you have a great weekend too. 🙂

  2. Hi Glenn,

    It’s very useful information to me and many others, I believe..
    Do you know what? I did a big mistake but basic thing until watch your video..
    After watched your video, I just go and check out the external mic properties. Over there my external mic level was in 79%. Soon I brought that to 100%

    Thanks for shared this particular article Glenn.
    Have a blessed days ahead.

    1. Hi Thyrone,

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 🙂

      I’m glad I helped you find out about your mic level, hopefully it was an improvement. Obviously, because of the differences in hardware, it’s a not a ‘one size fits all’ scenario and what might be a good setting for one person might not be for another. But the main thing is knowing where the settings are and how to adjust them. Then, you can tweak things accordingly. But usually, if things are too quiet then this is usually the reason.

      Have a great weekend and please stop by again. 🙂

  3. Hi Glenn,

    Thank you so much for putting together these tips. I was having some trouble using my microphone .. It’ a snowball for mac and supposed to delete background noise…hmm

    I do a lot of video and what I want to do in the future is podcasts. I know people learn many ways….reading, seeing, hearing. I do want to start applying that hearing part on my blog.

    I dabbled a while back and had this problem, but you sure helped working out the kinks when podcasting.

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Donna,

      I’m glad you found the video useful.

      Unfortunately I don’t know a thing about Macs so I can’t offer any advice regarding the sound in that environment. As for the Snowball, is it a full Snowball or the Snowball iCE? Neither will cut out background noise as such, but the advantage the Snowball has over the iCE is that it comes with a switch so that you can change how it picks up the sound. One gives you a more open sound and the other a more narrow, focused sound, which will reduce the chances of the mic picking up background sounds.

      If you’re thinking about podcasting then I highly recommend you check out Pat Flynn’s page at I view him as the go-to podcasting guy.

      I definitely look forward to hearing you start podcasting. Keep us posted! 🙂
