Get ready for a wonderful podcasting experience! You have something that people need to hear. We want to help you with all the little details. Background music, intros and outros, audio cleanup, hosting, iTunes, and on and on. Think of us as your very technically proficient friends who just want to help you however we can, no matter how much or how little you need. We are hands-on, guaranteed 100% human beings, not internet robots. We don’t automate the work or stay out of the way. We involve ourselves in your podcast and make it our own. Your podcast is our podcast, and we already love it!
We’ve discovered that many people are interested in the idea of podcasting, but either don’t know how to get a podcast together, or don’t know how to do it well. They want to make something great, but often times come up a bit short due to lack of knowledge. There are plenty of automated podcast hosting systems out on the internet, but finding a professional, dependable, and cheap podcasting service to help with production is hard to find. Congratulations! You found it!
We can’t do everything, but we can do quite a lot. Most services start and stop at hosting. We are pretty much everything else, plus hosting; whatever you need. ”Managed podcasting” means we take care of all the details. You provide the basic content, and we take care of the rest. Sound expensive? You’ll be completely shocked and how cheap this is. Don’t like monthly fees? Neither do we! We can work with you to make sure there are no monthly fees. You’ll pay some ridiculously low, one-time costs for on-demand work we can provide, and after that you pay nothing. Ever.
Having a microphone is the beginning of podcasting, but we can help you with music selection, voice overs, intros/outros, and even audio editing. If you don’t have a good mic and you end up with some background noise in your audio we can remove it. If your audio sounds good, people are more willing to listen to what you have to say. We have a range of audio help options that we can deploy for you, and we customize to fit every customer. We provide just as much help as you need, but not more than you want.
Hear the difference
Here is a short clip of some audio from one of our clients. This is how it sounded before any editing was done. For maximum “enjoyment” pop on some headphones and turn it up.
Hear it without editing
Yeah… Did you hear the background hiss and other people talking? Did you notice the long pauses and some stumbling to get the right words going? Now, with some editing…
All better! We can do this sort of editing on every episode of your podcast, if you need it. But we can make this audio even better with a nice musical intro, like this:
And with an intro
That’s a definite improvement!
If you are interested in having a custom intro made for your podcast, or even custom voice overs for particular episodes, we can help. We have various vocal talent that we can provide, or you can use someone you know. We can help you select music for your podcast, from a variety of sources. We’ll find the perfect music to reflect the content of your podcast.
One thing that we feel strongly about is that you shouldn’t have to pay monthly fees for a podcast. We are very flexible in how we setup hosting for you, and with certain limitations we can make your podcast have no monthly fees for hosting costs. This is something you won’t find anywhere else.
Our free hosting option works through a partnership with archive.org, and has no limitations on size or bandwidth. However, there is little in the way of features, or guarantees. We understand that this may not be sufficient for everyone, so we also have hosting options using Amazon.com’s servers, and we even work with other podcast hosting services like PodBean and LibSyn. We will find the right set of features for you, but most people are served perfectly well with free hosting. You can’t argue with that price.
When we say “hands free” that means we manage your podcast details for you. Whatever you decide is the right price and feature mix for you, you don’t have to worry about all the technical details. We’ll make sure your episodes end up on the internet, in the right place and sounding good. The only thing you have to do is get your audio to us. We take it from there. Truly hands free.
Our pricing is one of our strongest assets. Most podcasting services will charge a monthly fee. We try to make it so that you have none. Your bill will typically be for services rendered, not for hosting or applications you don’t use. You may pay as low as a one-time $15 charge for the life time of an episode. Once your episode is live you may never pay another dime. Compare that to other services where you face a monthly fee even if you aren’t adding any content to your podcast. Plus, we provide services that hardly anyone else will provide at our one-stop podcasting shop. An exact cost for you depends on exactly what you want, but we’re sure we won’t be stretching your budget.
