Hey there! 👋
We’re Hailey, Mel & Gina – together we created and run Podcast Production School.
🤓 We're also big #DataNerds – when we polled our students before they started, this is what we learned:
They struggled with confidence, time management and self-discipline. You know, before they came to us, that is!
They were also...
No problem! We get that these seem like big mountains to climb. 🧗
But once our students figured it out? They were THRIVING!
Still not convinced?

A quick message from Gina, Mel & Hailey:
Podcast Production School helps you master the skills + strategies needed to launch, manage and grow podcasts for small businesses.
"This sounds cool, but what is a Podcast Producer and who needs one?"
A freelance Podcast Producer is someone who offers technical, administrative and/or marketing support to podcast owners remotely.
There are already over 2,000,000 live podcasts to-date. Because of the many benefits businesses and brands get from podcasting, those numbers keep rising! 📈
Folks that already have shows often need someone else to manage things. And there are tons more businesses and brands that aren’t currently using audio but really want to be. In either scenario a Podcast Producer can help – they can step in and take over, improve a client’s existing show or help them to start a new one from scratch.
And we’re here to show you EVERYTHING you need to know to produce podcasts for those business owners.
So what’s the plan? 🤔
From our experience, it takes about 90 days to ramp up your podcast production business, even if you’re starting from scratch!
And our 90-day blueprint will help you to systematically land new clients and deliver quality work so that you can earn a dependable income.
What the 90-Day Blueprint looks like...
➡️ Days 0-30: Complete the Podcast Production School Coursework
- This program is designed to take you from an absolute beginner to running a fully operational podcast production business. If you do one section a day, it will take about 30 days to complete.
- We’ll cover everything from how to set up all the essential podcast tech and equipment, the different roles and responsibilities involved in podcast production, the pre and post services freelancers can offer, tips and tricks for growing podcasts, finding and vetting new clients, getting your business off the ground and so much more!
- Corresponding Community Exercise: Quickstart Live!
➡️ Days 31-60: Make 100 Offers to Prospects (i.e. send 100 pitches)
- This might sound daunting but by the time you get to this stage, you’ll have every single thing you need (including templates that tell you exactly how to pitch and what to say) to send your first 100 pitches. This is a rite of passage for successful freelance businesses and we support you all the way through! If you send 5 pitches a day (Monday-Friday) you’ll complete those 100 pitches within 30 days.
- Corresponding Community Exercise: First 100 Pitches Challenge!
➡️ Days 61-90: Gain Practical Production Experience
- At this point, you should be onboarding your first client (yay!). Regardless, we’ll spend these 30 days helping you launch your own audio series so you can get practical experience and real-time feedback on your skills (and a few great pieces to add to your portfolio!).
- Corresponding Community Exercise: Launch your own podcast!
When you become a Podcast Producer, you’ll…

What could this look like in your business? You could offer...
- Audio editing and show note creation to your clients at $500/month. You’d only need 5 clients to earn $2,500 a month. Land 10 to create $5,000 in income each month!
- Provide 3 clients with audio editing and guest management at $350/month for their bi-monthly shows, and make a total monthly revenue $1,050/month.
- Or offer full-service podcast production for 4 clients at $750/month, making your total monthly revenue $3,000!
It's your business and you can design it however you
want to based on your personal and professional goals. 😎
Podcast Production School is designed for both those who want to start and build out a podcast production business, offering podcast-specific skills to small business owners and for small business owners looking to launch and grow a podcast for their own businesses.
To start getting clients, all you’ll need is:
–> Your Podcast Production School course enrollment – $500
–> Community membership – $0 for first 90 days ($49/m thereafter)
–> Audacity (editing software) – $0 (it’s FREE open-source software!)
–> Over-the-ear headphones – $15+ (you can get a decent pair for cheap!)
–> PayPal biz account (to get paid) – $0 (FREE!)
You’re looking at an “all-in” cost of just over $500, INCLUDING your program investment.
In Podcast Production School, we’ll walk you through all of the possible tools and platforms you can use in your business (including suggestions for those headphones!).
But to be clear, most of them are free (or have a free trial). All other purchases are 100% up to you and your client. Your clients will either have a lot of these tools already in place or look to you to set them up with their credit card (not yours!).
Well, you have to learn how to do the actual podcast production services you want to offer. You should also like the podcasting medium and be growth-minded.
Operating a podcast production biz also means you’re self-employed, so finding and pitching clients should be high on your priority list.
Great question – Podcast Producers can help with a ton! From audio engineering to content repurposing and marketing to guest management, there are a lot of different services to offer in this space.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to master or offer them all – you can cherry-pick what services you enjoy doing and offer only those to your clients if you want. 🍒
As far as how much money producers typically make, you have to consider factors like, amount of experience, level of expertise, services offered, the level of client they’re looking to work with, etc.
Most Podcast Producers easily average $30 to $50 per hour (or more!) over time.
Our goal is to help students develop a side hustle that earns them an additional $1,000+ per month at the bare minimum. Some students decide to take it much further than that – earning six-figures as a full-time Producer isn’t out of the realm of possibility!
You bet! Of course, it depends on the individual – how much time they have to devote to learning, etc.
Most students make their way through the material in a month or less. Our 90-day blueprint is designed so that you not only learn, but land at least your first client and hone your skills in the first 3 months of your journey!
Nope! You’ll learn all of the skills needed to take over an existing show or help create a client’s brand new podcast from scratch, regardless if you have a podcast of your own or not.
Of course! All it really takes to do work as a Podcast Producer is to have access to a computer, over-the-ear headphones and a reliable internet connection.
Our students can work with clients in their local community, home country or worldwide. We’ve entered into a global economy and the internet has made it possible for Producers and clients to work together regardless of their location!

A few years ago, Hailey emailed Mel asking for help with podcast production. They set up a call and chatted for about an hour on Hailey’s vision for her new show. And just like that, the One Year Later podcast was born!
They continued working together on her podcast and other projects that came along over the years.
Gina and Hailey had already worked together on another digital course (Project Management for Virtual Assistants), so when the topic of another program about becoming a Podcast Producer came up, Hailey jumped at the chance to work together again.
Hailey mentioned what an amazing addition/asset Mel would be to the budding opportunity and in late 2019, Podcast Production School was born! The rest as they say, is herstory!
Kind of… it’s less of a refund policy and more of a money-back guarantee!
Why? Our baseline goal is for you to make 2x your investment back (or at least $1,000) within 90 days. That means landing at least one, $500/month client and booking just 2 months worth of work with them. If for any reason you don’t land a client 90 days after you’ve completed the course material and the 100 Pitch Challenge as prescribed, we’re happy to issue a 100% refund.
Investing in yourself is an important decision – if you’re ready to make a commitment to yourself, change your current circumstances and put in the work, you’ll get results! 2x
