What is the Podcast Host Academy?
The Podcast Host Academy is our premium content and personal coaching service. It's a membership site and a community, at it's core. It includes:
- In-depth video, text & audio courses
- Live coaching, every 2 weeks
- A supportive discussion forum
- Time saving checklists & resources
- Free music and sound FX
- Full launch guides & tools
- Sponsor directory & show critiques
Who are They For? Our Ideal Customers
Both Alitu and the Academy are ideal for anyone who is happy to pay a reasonable monthly fee to get their show right, first time, to save time in running it, and to grow it long term.
This particularly suits anyone who plans to sell services or products to their podcasting audience, such as coaches, consultants, small businesses, startups, entrepreneurs or marketers. But, many hobbyists are happy to sign up in order to make the process easier too.
The Academy Audience
The Academy in particular is designed to shortcut the learning process, save time and stress, and get a full guide to every stage of the podcasting process.
For example, we have a full, step by step guide to designing, creating and launching your show, helping anyone to get their podcast out into the world. Then, once your show is up and running, we have guides to monetisation, to growth, to developing your presentation skills, and much more.
So, the Academy is suited to anyone who wants to launch and run a successful podcast.
The Alitu Audience
We've found Alitu suits two particular kinds of podcasters.
First, those who are brand new to podcasting, and don't have any interest in the technical side of things. They just want to get their voice out into the world, and do it in the quickest, easiest way possible. Alitu is ideal for this, making sure they put out good quality and branded audio.
Second, experienced podcasters who have found their groove with their content, but want to cut the time it takes to ship their show. This group don't edit much – they're comfortable recording with minimal mistakes – so they just want the cleanup done automatically, branding added, to remove a few simple mistakes, and to get their show out the door.
Alitu is NOT for anyone who does a LOT of detailed editing (like removing dozens of ums and ahs) and wants full control over every detail of how their show sounds. For that, they'll want to use a full editing package. Instead, Alitu saves you time and stress by taking control of certain aspects, and gives you simple editing tools for the big mistakes.

Frequently Asked Questions
What's the Payment Schedule for Commissions?
I'll send you commissions every month, at the end of the month. Your commissions become due 2 months after they're earned. So, if someone signs up on the 15th of June, then your commission will be due on the 15th of August, and paid with all other due commissions at the end of August.
How do you Recommend Earning More with your Scheme?
Good question! I've always found that writing great content is the best way to earn a decent affiliate commission. So, review the Academy, show how it can benefit the user. Create a blog post which teaches people how to use Alitu, and what it can do to help them. Create a video that shows one particular thing you do in Alitu, every time, that makes your show great. If you can show people how the Academy or Alitu helps them, then it attracts fans to you, and it drives sales.
Can You Help Me Sell More?
Yes, happy to. We've got a bunch of graphics and banners you can use, for example. I can provide email copy, website copy and help with any writing you need to do. We could run a joint training, if you have a big audience to deliver it to.
Can you Offer Discount Codes to Give to my Audience?
We don't do a lot of discounting on either, to be honest. I think they're already at a really good rate. But… we can do limited time deals, sometimes, such as half off your 1st month, or similar. So, if you can think of a good promotion to run, and it would benefit from a discount, get in touch.
Can I Use PPC to Attract Customers?
No, I'm afraid not. Pay per click advertising of any sort is prohibited on both of our affiliate schemes, as it is on nearly any affiliate programme. You may not bid on our brand direct, or direct to your affiliate link from any other kind of paid advert. Affiliates who violate this rule will be banned immediately.
