Q: What is Pro Podcast Solutions?
Q: How does the process work?
If you’re looking for ongoing podcast production, we’ll set up a Dropbox folder for you to upload your raw-audio files. We’ll edit that episode for you at no charge so that you get a full understanding of the quality of our work.
Once you sign up for our services, we get to work! If you’re a brand-new podcaster, we set up a punch list tailored specifically for you and your podcast goals. We identify the items needed to launch your podcast and establish a launch plan.
If you’re an existing podcaster, we set up a schedule and checklist for each podcast episode. We set up a Dropbox folder on our server so that you can send us raw-audio files. Once the raw-audio files have been edited by our team, we send them to you or prepare them for publishing on your media host (e.g. Libsyn) or website. If you prefer, we can even publish the episodes for you.
Quite simply, once we establish your publishing plan, all you have to do is send us your raw-audio files. We can take care of the rest!
Q: Why not just do it myself?
You can spend your time learning all the technical details of editing your podcast and then spend time each week sitting at your computer being a part-time audio engineer, or you can focus on what you do best, and let us do what we do best.
When you let us do what we do best, you’re entrusting your podcast to a team that has produced thousands of podcast episodes and helped launch well over 100 different podcasts.
