    The great thing about the podcast production industry is that for the most part, we're all friends (or at least friendly). But that doesn't mean that we should share EVERYTHING with our peers. After all, sometimes we are also competing with each other for the same jobs. What things can we talk about? What things should we talk about? What things might get us into legal or ethical hot water? Listen to hear our thoughts and feel free to share your own in the comments. We stream live to https://www.facebook.com/podcasteditorsmastermind (Facebook Page) every other week. This episode edited by Alejandro Ramirez.

    Being a podcast editor can seem like it's all fun and games until you mess up on someone else's show. Then it can be scary. But let's face it: no matter how much time and care we take, and how much we invest in quality control, it's inevitable that there will be mistakes. Maybe even major mistakes. Join us as we talk about some of our mistakes and the strategies we've developed to make things right (or as right as possible) so that we can create the best possible outcome for everyone. If you spend a little time creating strategies for how to handle mistakes, it can save you a LOT of headaches later.

    You’d be wrong to think that prices are based on a simple equation. You’d also be wrong if you think podcasters want the packages you’re selling right now. The joy of a new, dynamic industry like ours is also it’s curse: We are constantly having to adapt creative minds and their new ideas.   So what strategies do you use to determine what to provide clients and what that service is worth?    Mailbag: Do you have a system for creating packages and prices? We’d love to hear from you. (because Carrie really wants to do a mailbag/AMA episode)   We learned a few things throughout this episode, but one of them was how much strategies vary from editor to editor.  That editors are constantly re-evaluating and refining offerings and rates. And that packages rarely seem to suit podcasters (which is something to explore on its own in a future episode).    When you quoted your first client, did you pull a number out of the air?    If you did it’s normal. We aren’t MBAs. We’re editors– part artists, part techies– who had this wild idea to invent a job that is challenging, flexible and rewarding. That’s why we started this show: to work through these sorts of things with our community… to mastermind with you. We asked our live audience what models they used and shared our own. Here were the answers...  Hourly  Per Episode  Day Rates  Project-based Value-based   We also covered the pros and cons of various billing cycles. Surprisingly, some of are moving away from monthly billing.    Scope Creep and a la carte packages   It was pretty well agreed that no one package is right for the majority of podcasters. There’s always something that’s not quite right. Or a podcaster wants more than agreed to without, ahem, wanting to pay for it. A la carte and a clear contract may be your best bet for staving off scope creep. If you're like us, you have things to say about what we talked about in this episode. If you're a member of our community, https://www.facebook.com/groups/podcasteditorsmastermind (you most certainly can do that). You might even see a live editing session or product demo!
