Publisher's Summary

The word is out: content marketing is king. But when nearly every business has a blog, it's tough to stand out. The real secret is that there's a much better tool for spreading influence and generating revenue - one with far less competition....

Podcasting offers rich opportunities, especially if you get in early and do it right. Based on the author's experience building a $2 million venture from scratch, Profitable Podcasting lays out the precise formula for creating, launching, marketing, and monetizing podcasts in any industry.

This indispensable guide explains exactly how to:

  • Book a lineup of dream guests
  • Master the art of interviewing and hosting
  • Automate scheduling, reminders, invitations, airing tables, and more
  • Manage the creative side, including making intros and outros, designing artwork, and editing episodes
  • Handle technical details, such as setting up a podcast website, hosting services, and iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play
  • Promote your show and guests using smart social media tactics
  • Dominate iTunes rankings and attract sponsorships
  • Analyze vital metrics, including lead-generation success
  • Perfect the process and dramatically lower time commitments
  • Build lasting relationships with guests that blossom into business

It's true that podcasting may take more technical knowledge than other marketing and sales efforts, but lucrative rewards await once you conquer the learning curve. Profitable Podcasting provides you with everything you need to make it happen. Checklists, production schedules, templates, spreadsheets, recommended third-party tools, visual examples of social media strategies, access to online video tutorials, and other tools simplify the process and get you from zero to launch in just eight weeks. Profitable Podcasting gets you to the payoff quickly and painlessly.

A perfect administrative guide

I’ve been freelance podcast producer for a number of years, however I stepped into a studio manager role and decided to listen to this to ensure I had all my bases covered.

Stephen lists all the administrative details that many might brush over when trying to go for podcast gold. Many people think all you need to do is record your voice and put it on the internet, but there’s so much more, and it’s all listed here.

Little details like keeping your social media logins together, and bigger issues such as steps to inviting guests and making them feel prepared.

Listening to the book, I realized I was missing some important visual assets, however I emailed Stephen and he posted links on his website where I was able to download the templates and build assets of my own. Within a few days I have streamlined my productivity and within a few weeks I will have a solid foundation that will not have to be altered.

A solid piece of information here.

Good information but...

Good information but it seemed to be like an advertisement session. I will be able to take some good ideas away...

I wish I’d had this book before I began podcasting!

I’ve been podcasting for over two years and have achieved many accomplishments and successes through my show. Still, Stephen presents so many things I never thought of and could have helped me short cut my learning curve had I found this book sooner! I’m thrilled to have it now as I build my re-launch strategy!

Listen Intently, But Read the Book Too

I bought this book first as through Audible, then bought the hardcopy. It's fantastic, but the level of detail and multitude of instructional lists cannot properly be memorized and applied through listening alone. What makes it a great listen is that beyond the depth of detail and instruction, there's an entrepreneurial story, and the narrator tells it well. I've probably downloaded six books narrated by Sean Pratt and this guy could read the phone book and make it sound interesting.

Stephen Woessner has meticulously, and very generously laid out the steps to planning and launching a podcast. Thousands of hours of work by him and his team are captured in these pages and/or on his website.

Decent advice

There was some good advice, but there was also a lot of rehashed information as well.
