Do you have a message that you want to get out to a wider audience? Do you feel strongly about something that you feel a podcast could amplify and help build your brand, drive traffic to your products and boost your business?

Podcasts have become incredibly popular in the last few years with thousands of people starting podcasts and millions more consuming more and more episodes every year. You've probably been thinking about starting a podcast and even have a great idea for one. However you just haven't got it going; maybe you think its too difficult or will take too much time. Maybe you just haven't had the discipline or a clear plan that you can follow to take your idea from concept to outcome.

This course will solve all these problems for you and ensure that you achieve your goal of launching your podcast. I strongly believe that getting started is more important that trying to be too perfect or worrying about all the bells and whistles you think are important. In the course we will work together to define what you want to do and what are the steps you need to take to get there.

It's a 5-day blueprint with clear checklists that take you through the process step by step. You'll learn exactly what you need to do on each day and then you will complete those actions to move you closer to your goal. In the introduction you'll learn about how the course works and then we will dive straight in, get you set up, recording, uploading and managing your episodes to launch on day 5.

On day 1 you will jump right in, set up your Anchor FM account and design your podcast. You’ll also do some initial promotion and a bit of planning for promoting and launching your podcast

Day 2: You will script out your intro, trailer episode as well as your first two episodes. You will also start promoting your podcast with your existing audience to build up awareness and anticipation for launching your podcast.

Day 3: You will record your intro, your trailer and your first 2 episodes

Day 4: You will upload your first 3 episodes into Anchor FM and schedule them to go-live on Day 5. You will also firm up your plans for the following episodes and continue doing promotion and marketing for your new podcast

Day 5: Your first 3 episodes go live and you can use these links in your ongoing marketing and promotion.

There’s also a bonus section were I teach you some additional things to think about as you make ongoing improvements to your podcast. I would suggest you only do these lessons once you’ve successfully completed your 5 day launch plan.

Do this course and you will become a podcaster. I look forward to seeing you in class and building the confidence and progress you need in order to achieve this goal. I will be with you every step of the way.
