Can I hire you to help me start my podcast even if I plan on doing post-production myself?
Yes. We are more than happy to help you start your podcast with our zero-to-launch JumpStart Package. You will be well equipped to handle post-production. However, we offer $300 off the JumpStart price if you commit to using our post-production services for at least 6 months.
Can I request changes after an episode has been completed?
Once we’ve begun post-production on an episode there is an additional charge for requested changes.
What if I only publish one or two episodes per month?
After working with hundreds of Podcasters across every iTunes category we’ve found that releasing episodes at LEAST once per week is critical to growing a podcast. For this reason, we don’t offer plans for Podcasters that publish less than once per week. Check out what Mimi Solmssen from Anchor.fm has to say on the topic.
What if I publish twice a week or more?
We’d love to work with you. Schedule a free no-obligation consultation call to discuss pricing.
Do I need custom artwork for each episode?
Custom Episode Artwork is optional, but it’s a great opportunity to show your listeners a pic of your guest (if it’s an interview) and display the Title, Episode number Etc. in an eye-catching way.
Do I need show notes with each episode?
We highly recommend that you include show notes with each episode. Think of your show notes as a sales pitch for the episode. If all your listeners have to go on is a short title, many will skip an episode if they don’t understand the topic or don’t know the guest. Show notes are an opportunity to summarize the episode, build the credibility of the guest as well as list resources mentioned in the episode. Show notes are also crucial for SEO and can be re-purposed for other projects.
