Professional Podcast Editing
- Podcast editing is about more than cutting out excess “ummms” and “uhhhs.” It’s about maximizing three things: Comprehension – Quality – Enjoyment When those three are done well they make for impacting, relevant podcast episodes listeners will enjoy and benefit from.
SEO Optimized Show Notes
- We opt for creating show notes instead of producing transcripts so that we don’t give away every bit of content provided in a podcast episode. That way readers are motivated to become listeners (and podcasts are for listeners, right?) You can see examples of the SEO-optimzed show notes we create on our show notes page.
Combination of Services
- We have many of our clients who do both these main services. Many. You can click the good old button below to get a quote customized to your podcast. We can also add additional services to any of our packages, so when you receive your quote, don’t hesitate to ask about other ways we can help.
Carey Green and the team at Podcast Fast Track are awesome. Since handing over my podcast editing and show notes creation, I’ve been able to take my content to a new level. They are super responsive and easy to work with.Roger Whitney

Don't Miss Out On What A PROFESSIONAL Podcast Editing And Show Notes Service Can Do For YOUR Podcast
The audio editing and show notes creation necessary to create a professional, entertianing, and truly valuable listening experience for your audience is essential.
ESPECIALLY with somewhere around 400 new podcasts per DAY submitted to Apple Podcasts (formerly iTunes) and other directories. Why?
Because the more podcasts that show up in the directories, the more competition you’ll have for listeners who are interested in the topics you podcast about.
That means quality CONTENT (which is up to you) and quality PRODUCTION (which is OUR expertise) will set you apart from other shows.
But time is the issue… right?
How Much Time Do YOU Spend On Audio Editing, Show Notes, Promotion, And Posting For Each Episode?
That’s a lot of time.
Every episode. Week after week.
It’s painful just to THINK about it!
What if you focused on creating killer, actionable, appealing, audience-pleasing content (the things you’re good at) and leave the technical mumbo-jumbo of your podcast production to us (the things WE are good at)?
Then you’d HAVE the time to do what you REALLY want to do (family, grow your business, take a trip… whatever).
After all, it IS all about you – at least from our perspective.
We ONLY Work With Amazing People. Here's What A Few Of Them Have To Say...
Carey and his team at Podcast Fast Track are awesome! As a business owner, it’s so helpful to be able to upload my audio and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it will be taken care of and in the best and most professional way possible. I’m super happy that I made the decision to work with Carey and his team!Tony Grebmeier
We wanted an audio engineering team that were excellent at what they did and human in how they did it. We got both. We are very pleased with Carey and his team.Dane Sanders

More Of The Great People We Work With...
I was spending anywhere between 6-8 hours cleaning, editing, and producing my podcast episodes. It was OK at the start but it was keeping me from moving forward in my business! Thankfully, Carey reached out to me at the right time and I jumped on board without hesitation! Their expert level support and technical prowess has allowed me to publish higher quality podcasts more quickly, and without bogging my business down. A small price to pay for peace of mind!John Michaloudis
I learned about Podcast Fast Track from another podcaster when I was just getting started. That person was explaining the full editing process to me, then they ended the explanation with, “… or you could call Podcast Fast Track and they will do it all for you.” My schedule is busy as it is, so it just made sense to let an expert handle it. Outside of the quality product of course, what I most appreciate is that they have their process very systematized – making it much easier to be a customer.Mark Goldman
I was intimidated to start a podcast because the editing process seemed complicated. Podcast Fast Track allows me to focus on creating great content and leave the technical stuff to someone else. I often turn in recordings with problems and Podcast Fast Track makes them disappear!Andrew Alleman
Frequently Asked Questions About Our Podcast Services
What if I've never done a podcast before? Where should I start?
We LOVE working with new podcasters. Your enthusiasm and starry-eyed excitement keep us going!
But you’re smart enough to know that you don’t know what you’re doing – right?
And it’s likely not the best use of your time to watch YouTube video after YouTube Video to figure it out on your own.
That’s why we have two options for you…
#1 – Our “How To Podcast Step By Step Course” (for those of you who like to get your hands dirty but want someone who’s been there to tell you what you need to know).
#2 – Our One on One Podcast Training (for those who want a guide very step of the way)
Until you complete one of those options, or get some experience under your belt some other way – we’re not able to help with your podcast production.
So we suggest you find out more about both of those options so we can get you started right away!
So tell me how the podcast editing service works...
Our audio editing service is about more than removing “umms” and “uhhhs.”
It’s about making the incredible content you’re recording even better.
We do that by focusing on two things.
#1 – Comprehension. We want to do everything we can to make what you’re saying, understood. That means technically (removing background noise, glitches, etc.) and, we work with the very words said in your audio to make them better understood (removing or modifying things that are distracting or unneeded).
#2 – Enjoyment & Enrichment. You’re doing your podcast to help people, right? We want to make the listening experience so smooth and easy, your listeners have no trouble getting what you’re trying to communicate.
We can’t give you that kind of quality by outsourcing the audio work to places that will do it for the lowest cost. We have to keep it in-house, with our own professional team of audio editors who not only know their craft and their software at expert levels, but who also go through OUR specific training to ensure they are editing according to those two criteria.
Our editors are among the best in the world. And it’s not bragging if it’s true.
Now THAT is professional podcast production. The kind you deserve.
Find out more about our incredible audio editing services.
How long of a commitment do you require?
We do sign a service agreement with clients just so we all understand what podcast production services we’ll be doing for you – but there’s no term clients are locked into.
With a two-week notice either we or you can cancel services at any time for any reason.
Would I have an assigned member of your team, or just whoever is available?
You get your own personal editor or writer.
In fact, we HATE it that some podcasting services bounce their clients from team member to team member in order to cut costs.
Where’s the world-class service in that?
After a 2-ish week period just after our clients come onboard, we hand-select the team member we feel best suits your needs as a client, then we make a personal introduction so you know exactly who is working on your podcast production week to week.
You’ll be able to connect with that person anytime you want – work out details – refine things as you go – even change stuff as you like.
Our team of professionals can handle it. Guaranteed.
Can you help me promote my show?
Yes. Yes we can. Sort of… 😉
You’re about to learn THE formula for a successful podcast… ready?
Great content + Consistency + Time = Success
The consistency piece is where promotional efforts come in. You want to be letting people KNOW ABOUT your great content or else… well, they won’t know about it. 😉
We have a handful of monthly subscription services aimed at helping your podcast get the attention it needs in order to help the people you’re trying to help.
Currently, here’s the main thing we do to help get your show noticed…
- SEO Optimized show notes (yes, they help your show get noticed)
And coming soon…
- Motion Clips for Social Media (They are called “Audiograms” – you’ve seen them… find out how you can get them for your episodes)
- Podcast consulting (get professional feedback to incrementally improve what you’re already doing well)
- Podcast Launch Strategy (how to make the most of your podcast’s debut. No guarantees, because effectiveness depends on your efforts – but you’ll have the tools you need to make it happen)
Show notes too, huh? What makes yours so special?
Show notes are a pain. We know. But they are an extremely vital part of your podcast production.
Sure, you don’t have to have show notes in order to publish a good quality podcast. But show notes do some amazing things for you that honestly, most podcasters don’t give enough thought to.
#1 – Show notes serve your listeners as a great resource (think: episode descriptions on the podcast player they are able to access immediately)
#2 – Show notes work WITH the way the internet works – presenting SEO-vital keywords and phrases for people who are looking for exactly what you broadcast.
And we continually work to keep up with the latest SEO and web copywriting techniques so our client’s show notes are always improving, always iterating to make the most of how the internet works.
That means our client’s show notes are continually attracting new potential listeners and converting them into listeners, and hopefully subscribers.
Isn’t that the GOAL of all your podcast production efforts?
Find out more about the benefits of great show notes.
What does your podcast production service cost?
We don’t do cookie cutter podcast production services.
In fact, we hate that kind of pricing. OK – hate is a strong word.
Let’s just say we very much dislike it. 🙂
Why do we very much dislike it?
Because YOU are not cookie cutter. Neither is your podcast.
So… we set up our podcast production in monthly subscription pricing based on what you actually need, not a bunch of things we ASSUME you need.
If you’d like a show-specific quote, we’re happy to give you one.
How quickly do you turn around work for your clients?
That’s a smart question. And the answer is: IT DEPENDS. 😉
If you are one of our great “audio editing only” clients, or one of our “show notes only” clients, the turnaround time is 48 hours – from the time we receive your content to the time you can expect it to be scheduled or provided to you.
If you are what we refer to as a COMBO client (doing both audio production and show notes with us) then your turn around time is 72 hours – from the time we receive your content to the time you can expect it to be scheduled or provided to you.
And you need to know this too:
Those time frames DO NOT include weekends (we never ask our team to work over the weekend).
And one more thing – if you add additional services to any of those services (episode images, promotional motion videos, lead magnets, etc.) then you can expect a tad more time will be required.
How does the workflow work?
Systems, systems, systems! We LOVE systems!
That’s how we ensure we can give you quality podcast production services every single episode.
All of our services hinge on the efficient use of Dropbox and Google Docs – primarily.
Clients will need accounts with both of those service providers – and the free accounts they offer may be enough.
In a nutshell, here’s what happens…
- You hit the “stop” button on your recording
- You provide us your resources
- Our audio editor gets the audio portion done (if applicable)
- Our show notes writer goes into creation mode (if applicable)
- Your resources are scheduled where and how you want them
- We do it all again for the next episode
We’ve thought it through and figured it out, and experience it running smoothly for clients week after week, episode after episode.
We are NOT one of those “figure it out as we go” podcast production services.
We’ve got this thing wired so you don’t have any reason to worry.
I'm ready to hire you for my podcast production. What are the next steps?
If you’ve never published a podcast before…
…we would love to work with you to get your audio editing and show notes done – but not yet.
We require that you first understand the basics of podcasting so that when we work with you on various things, you understand what we’re talking about.
Yes, there’s a financial investment (at least $99 for our DIY course, more for one on one training) but it shows you and us that you’re serious.
And the value you’ll get is worth far more than that. Find out about both options here.
