Our Professional Podcast Launch Service
By One of the top Podcast Consulting Companies in the Industry
Our launch package was created to help you design a podcast with the best possible chance of success, to record and publish it at a professional standard, and to set you up to make it regular, sustainable and profitable in the long term.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The launch package is a 4 week programme of training and support, and includes editing and production for your first 4 episodes. It also includes a year long subscription to our Podcast Host Academy to help you grow long term.
The training and support includes one personal coaching call per week, for the four weeks, and live support through a Slack channel throughout. The coaching call is for the big discussions, the big questions, and Slack is used for the small queries and barriers that crop up through the month.
WHAT DOES THE PERSONAL COACHING INCLUDE?
Firstly, the package includes a series of personally coached online sessions that cover the following topics:
HOW DO THE COACHING SESSIONS WORK?
We’ll meet online, using Zoom.us, and we can answer all of the questions you have there, screen sharing to demonstrate techniques if needed. We have a standard syllabus we tend to go through, but it’ll be tailored to your own context, of course. You’ll meet with various members of our team, depending on areas of expertise.
At the start of the 4 weeks, you can book in your 4 coaching calls right away, or you can leave it open to book in a session each week.
HOW DOES THE SLACK SUPPORT WORK?
We use Slack to offer support in between your calls, incase problems or barriers crop up. We’ll commit to popping into Slack once per day and we’ll answer any questions you’ve posted since we last visited.
If you have any big questions, that need a fair bit of discussion, best to save these until your call for that week, if possible, but Slack can help us get past the little bumps in the road, so you’re never stuck for too long.
HOW DOES THE PODCAST PRODUCTION SERVICE WORK?
Included in the package is editing and production of your first 4 episodes, provided they fit into the ‘standard episode’ category (have a look below for a definition). We can add more episodes if needed (costs below).
Our aim is for you to record at least one episode during the 4 weeks, before your final call. This means we can give you some feedback on the episode itself during that last call.
But, the production service can extend out to 3 months if needed, because we know it can take a bit longer to record those first 4 episodes.
Once you’ve recorded all 4 episodes, then you’ll send the files through to us, and we’ll do the production. We’ll edit to your requirements, and send you back the final episode files.
WHAT DOES THE PODCAST LAUNCH PACKAGE COST?
- Solopreneur - $1560 / £1250
- Small Business - $3100 / £2500
- Corporate Team - $6200 / £5000
This pricing reflects the features offered in each package, as larger teams often need more training, group resources, etc. But, Solopreneurs are welcome to upgrade to higher packages if relevant, eg. train up their VA team.
To recap, here’s what’s included in standard The Podcast Launch Package, for all groups:
- 4 Week Personal Coaching Programme
- Design your show with us, and learn everything you need to know
- 4 Weeks of live-chat support in Slack
- Full shopping list and setup guide for your equipment
- Full shopping list and guides for hosting and software
- FREE access to the Podcast Host Academy for 1 year
- Production of 4 ‘standard’ episodes
Other bespoke features and services added, as required, for higher tiers.
WHAT IF I NEED MORE THAN 4 WEEKS TO LAUNCH?
Our standard package is 4 weeks long, for a few reasons.
1st, it’s totally possible to get it done in that time, even if you’re doing this beside a full time job.
2nd, to do it right, you need to commit to your show, and a tight deadline does this!
3rd, launching is prone to all sorts of fear & procrastination. Again, a deadline solves this.
But…. if you have good reason – and we’ll ask you for one – we can run this over 8 weeks.
The only thing that changes is the frequency of the calls – once every fortnight – and the amount of Slack support you receive (twice as much time with us – 8 weeks of Slack support).
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
The Podcast Host were a tremendous help when helping us create our podcast. From the concept, naming it, through to hosting options, different strategies to launch it and how to grow it. Their knowledge and ideas were invaluable at the start of the process (as someone who knew NOTHING about podcasts they educated me very quickly!). Thank You The Podcast Host!
I worked with The Podcast Host in the framework of their launch programme. And, after two weeks I had the first 5-star rating on iTunes already. With their support, I could avoid beginners’ mistakes that would have cost me time and credibility. Instead, they provided me targeted advice in all fields: How to position myself, find a name and design for the show, script the teaser and intro so that the audience will listen. And, of course they guided me through the confusion regarding tools, gear and editing skills. Today, 9 months after the launch, I count over 11,000 plays and a growing group of loyal listeners. First impressions make a difference and The Podcast Host made sure that I landed the best possible first impression with my podcast.

When we set out to produce the Living Well with MS podcast, we were fuelled by passion but recognized a big gap in knowledge. We needed to learn about how to make a podcast come together. I’m a huge fan of podcasts personally, but I had no clue how to create one from scratch. Turning to The Podcast Host was the best decision we could have made. They guided us through the process methodically, and step by step our vision for the podcast became a reality. We just completed our first season of 14 episodes, and it’s been a big hit with our audience. The fact that we are still working with The Podcast Host on the production front is a testament to the big part they played - and continue to play - in making this vital effort to inform the MS community about positive lifestyle changes a big success!
