How to Create a Website for Your Podcast
Hey, I'm Colin Gray, founder of The Podcast Host & 10-year podcast host and teacher.
In this course, I'll show you how to create a WordPress website for your Podcast. A site that promotes your show, helps it get found, converts visitors to listeners, and listeners to huge fans.
What's the Aim of the Course?
This course is primed to help you with one thing: creating the best possible home for your podcast on the web.
In the course we cover the full gamut, from basics to advanced. That means setting up the site itself and then turning it into a podcast delivery machine, encouraging subscriptions, conversions and engagement.
By the end of this course you'll have an excellent website that turns casual visitors into fanatic fans.

About Our Links
I'll be talking about a lot of different resources in this course, from hosting providers to WordPress plugins. In many cases, I'll be using Affiliate links, which means that, if you buy, we get a small commission on the purchase. As you know we're always open and transparent about this, and on this course, you can generally assume that any link to a paid product is an affiliate link.
I want to say, though, that I only recommend things that I really know and trust. In nearly all cases, I'm a loyal user of that tool, having bought it myself. And if I don't use it, then I either have in the past, or have had a really strong recommendation from someone I trust. Either way, you can rest assured that I'm recommending things that I would recommend anyway, whether we get a comission or not.
If you choose to buy through our affiliate links, I really appreciate it. You're supporting the free content we put out there, like this course. That means we can create more of it, and help you much further in the future.
