Podcast Show Concept and Strategy

The first process you go through when creating a podcast is to decide what the podcast will be about. What are you going to talk about? Who do you want to reach?

When we first sit down with a podcast launch client, we take you through a process to determine what you are passionate about, what moves you, and what are the real problems you are trying to solve. We look at your existing content, your blog posts, youtube videos, and your social media channels. We talk to you and we ask you about your existing business, audience, community, and any other stakeholders. We want to help you figure out who your ideal audience members are and how best to reach them.

We then take this information and help create the best title and description of your show. We help you figure out what type of podcast episodes to create for this ideal audience. What podcast content should you have? Is this primarily an interview podcast? Should you start out with a batch of solo episodes before adding in some interview episodes? Would your audience enjoy shorter episodes or longer episodes? Short segments or long segments? What is your interview format? How does this information guide your marketing strategy? What type of online podcast community could you build? What should your first podcast episode be about?

And finally, we’re going to take all of that data and use it to inform your podcast launch strategy.

Podcast Cover Design

Your podcast cover art is a required element. To be able to create an RSS feed to distribute your episodes, you need to provide the podcast cover image to the podcast directories like Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and more.

Our designers work with you to create artwork that fits your current branding, represents you well, and helps your listener connect with you. If you don’t have a current visual branding guide, we can help create a basic brand guide that will work with your cover design and will have those conversations with you as we start the launch process.

Podcast Trailer Creation

Your podcast trailer episode is podcast episode you must have to be able to create required things like your RSS feed and connect you to podcast directories such as Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, and more.

A good podcast trailer is simple and provides crucial information. It is a 2 – 4 minute episode that answers questions like who, what, when, where, why, and how. Sometimes podcast trailers can also offer a sneak preview into the type of content you will share, giving new listeners the opportunity to decide if they want to listen. What should the listener expect?

We take the guesswork out of this process by providing you a script to fill in and get moving as quickly as possible.

If doing it yourself, you can launch a podcast for less than $200.

But there is a steep learning curve. While our launch packages start around $2500 and can go much higher if you want to add more episodes or have us build a website for you, we handle all of the steps listed above and much more. You don't need the headache of trying to figure all of that out while also learning how to be a podcast editor, graphic designer, and web developer. Let us be your podcast production team.
