PLUS: How to Start a Podcast with LibSyn!

Liberated Syndication (libsyn) pioneered the system to host and publish podcasts in 2004. And since then has grown to the largest leading  network with over 2.6 billion downloads in 2014. Libsyn hosts over 25,000 shows with 44 million monthly audience members.


Discover how to make a Podcast - Fast, Easy and FUN! Join over 32,000 students using Power Podcasting to position themselves as THE Expert, build relationships, grow their influence, increase sales, and change the world. 

What is a Podcast? It is audio or video shows, that when you subscribe to them, are automatically updated on your Computer, Smartphones, iPads, Tablets, and/or iPods. Think of them as free radio or TV shows which you deliver Spam-Free! directly to your audience every time you produce one.

Podcasting is bigger than you think. When we survey people who listen to free, commercial-free audio Podcasts at least once a month: we discover an interesting fact: Online Radio beats AM/FM Radio, streaming audio, CD's, TV Music channels, & Sirius

"Power Podcasting Rocks!" 

"Scott is friendly and easy to follow. He clearly knows his stuff. All the tools are here, and laid out in easy way. I think it is a great course! I was shocked at how popular this is. Great marketing tool that I overlooked. Great education." ~ Dan Kobelt 

If you look at the number of people listening to these free shows monthly, they are as popular as Twitter with 39 mIllion listeners, even if it doesn't get the same 'Love'. 

But instead of communicating in impersonal 150 character Tweets, with Power Podcasting, you get right into the head of your target market for as long as they let  you. 

They are portable — and because of this, they are more personal.   

Imagine whispering into the ears of your ideal customers every week... building strong relationships, trust and connections. But instead of One-to-One, Power Podcasting is One-to-Many! Our students know that Podcasting is relationship building in the sales process, and not the time to go for the hard close. 

These listeners are higher income earners. They listen daily to an hour and forty minutes more audio than the average American consumer. They are dedicated to continual learning, so just imagine what happens when your show is available on new cars all over the world... 

Power Podcasting "allows you to convey your personality in a much stronger way than is possible through the written word. That clarity in your message is seen and felt through your actions (on video) and the tone of your voice..." according to Chris Ducker, Author of #1 Bestseller 'Virtual Freedom'. 

When you claim your seat in this course, you'll have permanent online access to watch the course 24/7, and there's a Q&A discussion section in each lecture, where you can post questions - and I'll answer them personally! 

By following the short, simple, easy-to-follow lectures, you will be able to work through the process of setting up your show and publishing your first episode quickly. 

The course was designed to accomplish one goal: Start a  Podcast as fast as possible. I recommend watching the first 6 sections in their entirety. There are PDF workbooks included for you to use to clarify your topic, title, descriptions, intro and extros. 

For 'Type A' personalities, there is a "Fast Track" Lecture (Section One, Lecture #6), in which if you already have a finished MP3 or MP4 file, reveals which lectures to watch so that after following only 33 minutes of video, you will have your show live and into iTunes. In other words, you can be up and running in under an hour. 

The technical processes of  are only one aspect of successful Podcasting. Walk through real life examples of producing a live show, discover how to use your voice effectively to move your audience, uncover how to repurpose content for your podcast that you may already be doing, and how to do it FAST!   

Power Podcasting "will grow your email list, your audience, your influence and your bank account." Amy Porterfield of "Tweet This" and former Social Media Maven for social media for the likes of Harley Davidson & Tony Robbins. 

Podcasts are growing rapidly, and thanks to CarPlay, Google Play and Apps, continue strong growth for years to come. It is just past the 'Early Adopter' stage and has huge potential moving forward. Don't miss out on the low-competition, high-demand opportunities that your fellow Power Podcasters are enjoying. 

"Great content that kept my attention" 

"Scott is obviously very knowledgeable, experienced and shares great content. I am a beginner and he has inspired me to believe that even I can do this. Also, I find some of the other courses very boring and they lose me. This one doesn't. Scott makes it entertaining, easy and fun to learn." ~ Marion Baker

Brent3 October 2020

Very informative in explaining the basic moving parts of podcasting. A little bit more general introduction in the first three or four clips than I needed. the step by step instructions in the process of registering with a podcast host such as Libsyn and setting up the podcast program and creating the first actually podcast was helpful but then lost me in the details which seemed to merge multiple steps into one compound step. Also move quickly for a beginner. Lastly, we started learning about registering and podcasting with Libsyn but suddenly, with out comment, changed to "My Podcast World". I am still hanging on and moving forward but a bit overwhelmed.

Shelley21 September 2020

Clearly somewhat outdated in main content, but nice that he's added on an ultra-quick look at Anchor! Also seems quite responsive to questions which can get you more up-to-date info. Lots of good basic info at least.

Don9 September 2020

This course is frustratingly overly and underly specific. He focuses on nonsense and trivial details that you could gather yourself from websites (I mean the guy literally spends way too much time reading websites) and spends too little time (or none at all) on the things that matter. He assumes a sophisticated level of technical background and, at the same time, treats his listeners like idiots. Run from this class. Beyond worthless.

Margaret27 August 2020

Very informative and engaging. The tutor has a excellent knowledge of the topics and gives in-depth explanations.

Biswajit18 August 2020

Excellent information. This course does touch upon production, but it focuses more on marketing and other issues related to podcasting. The information about various podcast hosting platforms is handy.

Munira26 February 2020

I have completed Sections 1 and 2 of the course and am incredibly impressed. Scott is engaging and passionate about the topic and I have learnt a lot. Now onto the technical part of podcast hosting......

Darren23 January 2020

I love the passion Scott has for podcasting d how he is encouraging others to make the most of this wonderful medium. Thanks Scott ?

Hilary21 January 2020

The intro was fabulous, I really appreciate Scott's commitment to authenticity and being open to feedback in-the-moment! I also feel very encouraged in my quest to learn how to produce a podcast.

Teresa16 January 2020

I am not a techie person and I am now confused. The course started out great and I made a trailer in Anchor. Then it seemed the instructor changed course and said not to use Anchor. He said Power Podcasting was free but then went on to describe how to use Libsyn - huh? This class needs to be reformatted and updated for 2020 - also for people who are not very tech savvy.

Mischa10 January 2020

This course was invaluable. I took the teacher's advice and watched the whole class, and now will do so again.

Andrew18 November 2019

Excellent information for beginners and intermediate users. I've learned a lot from this course and every time I had a question, it's been answered quickly. Highly recommend it.

Muhammed22 October 2019

It was really helpful to understand some basics of podcasting. At least it gave that motivation "why not". However, it might be given more time for technical issues. Overall, I can highly recommend for those who want to have a good start

Fiona13 October 2019

I am very impressed with the quality and information in this course. Scott really knows his stuff and he makes me feel confident that I can produce and benefit from building my own podcasts. Great Course!

Bob22 September 2019

I think it could be more succinct and to the point. I’m listening at 1.5. So far, I’ve not learned anything of value.

Amanda16 September 2019

This course is exactly what I was looking for - it was referred to me by a marketing company's presentation I went to a couple weeks ago.
