I’m thinking of starting a podcast, can you help?
Yes! You can read our blog post on starting a show, buy our course with some more details on how to do it or let us do all the work for you with our starter plan.
What can I expect when I purchase?
When you purchase a plan from our site, your dedicated podcast manager will reach out to you to discuss your needs. If you’d prefer just to get the edits straight back to you, there is also a self-service option where you can send your files instantly.
Is it expensive to run a podcast?
Once you’ve got your gear, which can be surprisingly cheap (>$300), it’s just the editing costs. Our plans start from $250 for a single edit, to $1,500 a month to have your own dedicated podcast producer.
What’s the difference between a podcast editor and podcast producer?
An editor will take your recorded files, turn them into a beautifully crafted finished episode and send the file back to you to post. A producer will help you find guests, do the recording with you, edit, write show notes, publish and help with marketing - all you need to do is show up for the recording.
When will I start seeing results from my podcast?
Podcasting is a long-term bet. If you want quick and easy results, podcasting isn’t going to be for you. But if you want to build a deep relationship with your customers over time, it’s perfect for you. Then you’ll start to see “results” when people choose your product/service over your competitors because they trust you. It’s hard for other content mediums to do that.
Who is edits the podcast?
Currently, your show will be edited by *ahem* me, James McKinven, a UK-based podcast producer who runs the Indie Bites podcast. Sometimes I’ll get some of my audio engineer colleagues to help out with edits, but nothing gets past a high-standard review from me.
Do you do video podcasts?
Not right now. Currently, we focus on making the best possible audio podcasts. The nature of editing audio with adding segments, removing ums/ahs and disruptions would mean a very choppy and jarring video to watch. If we were to start doing video, it would compromise the quality of the audio show - which is still the main way people consume podcasts.
