Help for Podcasters

Podcasting is a fun job until it overwhelms you...and it almost always overwhelms you. There's a lot to do to get a podcast to your listeners. The weekly tasks can start to feel like a real burden and the joy you had at the beginning may have faded. Don't give in to podcast fade! There's help. I specialize in all the administrative tasks of getting a podcast developed, scheduled, and promoted on social media.

Help with guests

Having guests on your podcast is a great way to help your podcast stand out. Once you decide to do an interview, the number of tasks you need to accomplish necessarily goes up. You want to handle your guests courteously and efficiently, but that takes time. You will need to collect bio information, images that you can use in promotion, and you need to prep them for the process and you need to follow up after the podcast drops.

  • Research to find appropriate and interesting guests
  • Communication to set expectations and gather information
  • Followup so they can promote to their audience

Help with social media

Your podcast is perfect. But what’s a great podcast without listeners? You need to get the word out. Posting on all the socials takes time and effort.

  • Create graphics and posts for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube
  • Interact and engage with your audience

Help with episodes

Creating a system and workflow for all the tasks needed to drop a podcast is essential. It's easy to forget something important when there are so many tasks to do.

  • Creating show notes
  • Creating audiograms
  • Creating and editing transcripts of your show
  • Keeping websites up to date by uploading podcast links

Free up your schedule for the creativity that makes your podcast go.

About Me

I guess my name is obvious since you found the website. I've lived in Fort Worth, TX since graduating from Texas A&M with a degree in Computer Science. My first job was with Tandy/Radio Shack as a software developer using a new operating system called Windows. I've had a varied career as a C, C++, PHP programmer, tennis coach, Microsoft Access database developer, website developer...and the best part, wife, mom, and grandma.

I decided I wanted to try something new, so I took the certification training to be a Podcast VA from Podcast VA Association. I love listening to podcasts, so I thought it might be fun to be on the production side of getting podcasts out. I've also discovered that I like to help people, so it was a great fit.

When I'm not glued to my computer, I'm enjoying the outdoors by playing tennis, pickleball, camping, walking my crazy golden doodle, Marnie, or I'm sitting reading a book with a cup of dark roast.
