Hands down one of the most complete and thorough podcast creation courses currently online.
Hi! We're the Portland Pod, Maine's first commercial podcasting studio. In our course Creating a Podcast: Concept to Launch you will be taken through every step of the launch process from the very beginning to the second you go live. But it won't stop there, this course will also provide you with a clearly explained strategy for marketing your podcast after launch so that you can grow your audience and monetize your podcast. In addition, throughout the course, you will be introduced to a number of money-saving tools and time-saving resources that will help to greatly reduce the learning curve required to get into podcasting.
I have no doubts that podcast would ever have had near a successful start without the help and guidance this course provided. It was an incredible tool and I am sure that it will be an amazing resource as I work through the next few months of my new podcast.
This class was awesome. I started with VERY little information about podcasts and left feeling like I could actually pull something together.
I have reviewed a couple other "beginner" podcast courses online - (Skillshare, CreativeLive, free NPR/NYT training articles) and this course content is unique because of its very business-forward approach. It's a great course, I learned a lot, and I highly recommend it.
So what do we go over in the course?
Planning, writing, scripting, designing, branding, hosting, editing, facilitating, submitting, launching, tracking, marketing, promoting, and audience growth. And, if you can believe it, even more than that. Check out the curriculum below.
Yes. This is an online course attended entirely online. No need to travel anywhere in order to enroll or attend.
Why is the price so low?
Because being fancy is what makes these courses expensive. We shot all videos from one angle on an iPhone and captured all screen activity using TechSmith's SnagIt software. We did this because the less time and money we put into being fancy the more time we could put into the actual content. This is important as we want newbies to be able to actually afford the course so more first time podcasters can come out swinging.
I've been podcasting for a while, should I enroll in this course?
That's up to you. I will say that if you struggle with marketing and social, there is definitely value here for you, but this is truly for beginners and so the course is presented in a beginner style.
Will the course be released all at once or over time?
The course is released, in its entirety, on February 18th, 2019. You are then free to work through it at your own pace. You also have lifetime access to the course in the event that podcasting technology evolves and updates to the course are necessary.
When does the course launch?
The course goes live Monday, February 18th, 2019 at 8am.
