When you dream about hosting your own podcast, you think about how much fun you’ll have sharing your message, connecting with your audience, and interviewing guests. What you usually don’t think about is all the time it takes to actually produce a podcast.
Several podcast hosts choose to produce their own podcasts to save money; however, the time and stress involved with producing cancel out the perks of doing it yourself.
Is it time for you to hire a podcast producer? Keep reading to find out!
What Do Podcast Producers Do?
There’s much more to podcasting than meets the eye. Thankfully, you can outsource most of your behind-the-scenes tasks to a producer and enjoy the hosting process. A producer can handle:
- Editing your episodes
- Writing podcast show notes for every episode
- Creating graphics for your show and each episode
- Transcribing your episodes
- Promoting your show
- Communicating with guests and scheduling interviews
- And way more!
A podcast producer takes all of the logistics off your plate so that you can focus on the creative side of podcasting. If you’re tired of being bogged down by all the tasks involved in hosting your own podcast and want to simply show up and hit record, it’s time to hire a podcast producer.
What to Look For in a Podcast Producer
Most podcast producers are independent contractors, which means they can offer various services. Some may only provide editing services, while others include marketing services, communication services, and more.
Finding the right podcast producer for you depends on your podcast and which services you want them to take off your plate. You should also look for someone with experience and a proven track record of happy clients with their own successful podcasts.
Lastly, think about your production timeline. Do you plan on batch recording your podcast episodes and sending them all to your producer for editing at once? Or do you want to record your episodes weekly and send them over one at a time?
Determining how you want to work and the type of relationship you want to have with your podcast producer will impact which producer is right for you.
