Podcast Production From Industry Leaders

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.

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!

Don't Miss Out On What A PROFESSIONAL Podcast Editing And Show Notes Service Can Do For YOUR Podcast

podcast production can help your show stand out (1)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.

Why Us And Not Another Company?

you are the reason we do podcast production as well as we do (1)

Though we are a podcast production service, that’s really our 2nd priority…First, we care about YOU – and YOUR message.

You’re a person to us, not a number.

From our personalized video onboarding sessions with clients to our periodic thank you notes and gifts throughout the year, we work hard to let you know that YOU are the reason we do this podcast production thing.

And while we’re talking about you… here’s a few other things…

#1 – We don’t see you with dollar signs tattooed on your forehead (though that would be quite a tattoo).

#2 – Your audio and written resources are not just a “product” to us, they are an expression of who you are and the brand you are trying to communicate to the world. We take that seriously – from the first moment we connect with you.

#3 – We make sure that ever member of our team cares about what you’re doing and adds that special little touch of love to everything we produce on your behalf.If they don’t, they won’t be on our team for long.

And we are willing to stand behind our commitment to YOU through this guarantee…

The PFT Podcast Production Guarantee

If any MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION CLIENT follows our GUIDELINES FOR CONTENT PROVISION AND COMMUNICATION – then your podcast production services will be published ON TIME, EVERY TIME at the HIGHEST QUALITY or we will REFUND YOU the cost for that episode.

 

How our commitment to YOU impacts what we do…

We do what we say. We say what we mean.

We’re committed…

Not only to helping you spread the message that’s so important to you, but helping you, period.

We don’t overprice…

to get an extra buck here and there. We charge what we have to charge in order to pay our team well and make a profit (this IS a business, after all).

We deliver on time.

You can rely on us to deliver what we say we will deliver, when we say we will deliver it.

We figure it out.

If there’s a technical problem, a system or procedure problem, or a communication problem – it’s not a problem for long.

We aim higher.

Customer satisfaction is expected. Customer delight is our aim (and we have good aim).

We used a few other producers but had poor experience and results. Podcast Fast Track changed all that. The biggest reason for going with and continuing to use Podcast Fast Track is their incredible level of service and the personable way in which they deliver that service. Our marketing, brand recognition, client acquisition, and value-add have all improved as a result of engaging with Podcast Fast Track. I would recommend Podcast Fast Track to anyone who is starting out, as well as for those who are well on their way. Their level of professionalism, service, and support is what we all look for.

Bruce Holoubek

Business Owner/Consultant, host of, The Development Exponent

When I started a podcast I didn’t know how I was going to fit everything into my busy schedule. A buddy recommended I talk to Podcast Fast Track. I contacted Carey and his team and started with him from episode 1. I do the recording and send it off to his team and they send me back a perfect product in the end. If you’re thinking about starting a podcast and are concerned about the time, contact Podcast Fast Track. They’ll do a great job for you.

​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

CFP®, CIMA®, CPWA®, AIF®, The Retirement Answer Man Podcast

​I knew show notes were important – when you refer people to the show notes you want them to be well-written, structured, and useful. I was struggling with that because I’m not a good typer or writer. I reached out to Podcast Fast Track and they do 3 shows per week for me – and they are really, really great. Instantly, I had listeners say that my show notes were better! It does make a difference, so give Podcast Fast Track a shot.

Scott Voelker

Amazon Seller and host of, The Amazing Seller

Everyone is wonderful to work with. Carey’s tips have helped improve my show and they will move the moon to make sure the show gets put together even when I’ve messed up a file. The Podcast Fast Track team DEFINITELY looks out for their clients!

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?

Uhhh… none.

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…

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.

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 72hours – 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 96 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…

  1. You hit the “stop” button on your recording
  2. You provide us your resources
  3. Our audio editor gets the audio portion done (if applicable)
  4. Our show notes writer goes into creation mode (if applicable)
  5. Your resources are scheduled where and how you want them
  6. 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’re an experienced podcaster already…

  • Check out our “Why” page
  • Decide if we’re a good company for you to work with for your podcast production
  • Set up a time to chat so we can get to know you and you can get to know us (and we’ll give you a precise quote for your show)
