If you are technically handy and you have the TIME to dedicate, then you may be able to edit your own podcast. The amount of time depends on your show style and length, as well as your abilities on the mic. Note that most entrepreneurs find that outsourcing is the best way to go since their time is better spent on what they do best.
There are a few place to find an editor. You can do a Google search, post your job on Upwork, or check out Fiverr. Be sure to speak to their references and to listen to shows they’ve edited. It’s okay to hire someone to do a test edit before you commit to any long-term contracts.
I have a very limited number of editing clients. At this time, I am not taking any new clients on.
If you hired a graphic designer to create your website or logo, they may be your best first-stop. Our past clients have had mixed results using services like Fiverr and 99Designs. If you go this route, be sure to select someone who you can communicate with clearly.
We use two different sources for royalty-free licensed music – Audio Jungle and Pond5. Here you will find more music than you can possibly consider so go in with an idea and some descriptive words to help you narrow down your search. You cannot use commercial music without the express consent of the artist. You can use music that is in the public domain, if you prefer not to pay.
It depends on what your podcasts goals are and if you already have a website for your business. In most cases, we recommend that the podcast finds a home on a business’ existing site. If you don’t have a website and you want to keep it simple, you can use Podpages to create a branded site in minutes (after publishing your trailer).
Even if your podcast is going to live on your website, we usually recommend grabbing the domain to protect the name of your podcast. You can simply redirect it to your podcast page on your site.
You don’t need to be on social media but most podcasters find it a useful way to promote their show and create engagement around their show. If you don’t want to be on social media, you should have a solid marketing plan to replace the attention social media would have provided.
We get it, the podcasting development process can be overwhelming and sometimes life gets in the way. We allow Concept to Casting clients to pause their program ONCE and for a maximum of 3 months. Just be sure that when you come back, you are ready to keep going all the way to launch!
