We’re big on data around here, and when we polled our students before they started the course, this is what we learned:

They struggled with confidence, time management and self-discipline. You know, before they came to us, that is! 😉

They...

A Quick Message From Gina, Hailey & Mel:

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 Podcast Producer is someone who offers technical, administrative or marketing support to podcast owners remotely.

There are already over 1,000,000 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.

Here's what it looks like:

Days 0-30: Complete the Podcast Production School course work

  • This course is designed to take you from absolute n00b 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 right 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 land at 100 pitches.
  • [Corresponding Community Exercise]: *First 100 Pitches Challenge!

Day 61-90: Practical Production Experience

  • At this point, you should be onboarding your first client (yay!). But even if you aren’t, we’ll spend these 30 days helping you launch your own audio series so you 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Great question!

Podcast Production School is designed for both those who want to start and build out a podcast production business and offer podcast specific skills to small business owners  AND for small business owners looking to launch and grow podcasts for their businesses.

To start getting clients, all you’ll need is:

–> Podcast Production School course enrollment – $598
–> Community membership – $1 for first 30 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 $600, INCLUDING your course 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 Podcast Producer services you want to offer. You should also like podcasts 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 it 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 or more per month. Some students decide to take it much further than that!

It depends on the individual and how much time they have to devote to learning, but, yes, most students make their way through the course in a month or less.

Nope! You’ll learn all of the skills needed to take over or help create a client’s podcast 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!

> Self-paced material that is available 24/7

At the beginning of 2019, I (Melanie) received an email from a Hailey Thomas asking about help with podcast production. Soon after the email, we set up a call and chatted for about an hour on Hailey’s vision for her podcast. Just like that, the One Year Later podcast was born!

Hailey and I have been working together on her podcast and other projects that have come along ever since. We get along eerily well and I feel so fortunate to have run into such an amazing human that walks alongside me in what often feels like a crazy, self-employed life.

Gina and I (Hailey) had already worked together on another digital course (Project Management for Virtual Assistants), so when she mentioned another course about being a Podcast Producer – I jumped at the chance to work with her again.

Our goal is for you to make your investment back within 90 days. That means landing one, $500/month client. If for any reason you don’t land a client 90 days after you begin (complete 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!

"I just completed the Podcast Production School course and I loved it! The course covered all aspects of starting, editing, and producing a successful podcast. I’m excited to start helping people with their podcasts and learning even more, while serving my clients in this growing medium."
Christine Wlazlowski

"I've been looking into offering services online for a long time. I'm so glad I signed up for this course and the community! In fact I just signed my first client from a lead that was provided in the community. Supporting other podcasts with the skills I have now is perfect for me. Super stoked to continue on this journey!"
