You missed out!
Get your message out to the world. On your terms. In your style. Podcasting is the perfect way to share what you know with people who will sign up, show up and be delighted to listen and connect!
Connecting with and growing an audience has never been easier.
There are only 2 required components. A message and a method.
You already have the first or the beginnings of a message that you know can make an impact. Are you looking to inspire, teach, motivate, entertain or do a bit of all those things?
If you were offered the chance to speak once a week to an audience that showed up just to hear you, would you do it?
How easy would it be to think of something to share, or teach? How exciting would it be to connect with new people and see some familiar faces at every presentation?
You’d love the opportunity to be seen as the expert, and the chance to create a real impact.
That’s what podcasting will do for you. It can be the place where your audience shows up to hear from and connect with you.
Start podcasting. Make an impact.
The SoundAdvice 60 Days to Launch Course
Make an impact with podcasting.
You haven’t started podcasting because you don’t know where to start. The technology is a mystery. You aren’t sure if anyone will listen (they will). You know there are already others podcasting on your topic so should you even try?
Yes, you should. No one has your unique perspective or voice. There’s an audience waiting to hear from you.
Show up and share what you know, as only you can.
Here’s How This Will Work
This is a Done-With-You course. We’ll be doing a combination of teaching you what you need to know and showing you how-to. We’ll handle the technical aspects that only need to be done once so you can focus on what you know best. Your message.
Each week we’ll do a live training (recorded if you can’t make it) and we’ll do a weekly Q&A call. You’ll have time to implement as we go and get immediate feedback on each step.
This is not learning in the abstract. You’ll be taking the steps to create and launch your podcast. At the end of 60 days, you’ll be a podcaster on Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, Spotify and more.
We’ll show you exactly what to do
We’ve helped over 30 businesses launch their podcasts. You’ll get the same information and guidance about what works, and the best, easiest way to get started.
You will know exactly what to do, and how to as well. We’ll share things like the best equipment to use, the easiest way to record and how to know what style of podcast is right for you.
We’re committed to your success
We’re betting on you. We want to make sure your podcast goes live at the end of the course. When you launch, we’ll share it with the world and we’ll give you $100.*
To keep you on track, you’ll have daily accountability check-ins (3 minutes or less using your phone) so even on your busiest days, you can keep your momentum.
We’re handling the Tech
In 2012 when I launched my first podcast it was overwhelming. There are 27 steps to get your podcast live on the apps and all of them do it differently. So frustrating.
The good news? We’ll do (almost) all of that for you. (We’ll need your help linking to your social media accounts so we can’t do that for you.) Don’t stress though, we’ll show you how.
ALL of the tech related set-up steps will be done for you so you can focus on the part that only you can do.
(For us to complete the tech set-up you will need to provide us with access to your host account, and be on track to launch at the end of the course)
What does done-with-you mean? Good Question.
It means we’re going to explain what you need to do, AND we’ll do some things for you.
Here’s what we’ll handle 100%:
- We’ll submit your podcast to Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts, TuneIn, Stitcher and Google
- We’ll set up your hosting account (Libsyn only w/ your log-in credentials)
- Our editors will create an evergreen intro/outro that you record
- You’ll get all of our templates and checklists that our team uses to create and launch our client podcasts
- We will give you the Trello board we use for podcast production
*We are committed to helping you launch at the end of the course. If you launch within 2 weeks after the end of week 8, we’ll pay you $100 cash (via paypal) or give you a SoundAdvice gift card of $125.

This gives you a polished, professional sound and it’s part of the SoundAdvice course
Here’s why we know this works:
We’ve helped 30 (and counting) businesses create their podcasts with amazing results. One of our podcasters had a small Facebook group (300 members) when she launched her podcast. She published weekly and asked the group what they’d find helpful.
In less than a year her Facebook group grew to over 8K members, she used the momentum to create a course based on her podcast content!
Her course launch was super successful and now 2 years into her podcast journey she’s launched a second time, her FB group is over 15K and she just released a physical product – something her audience told her they wanted to buy!
You Can Do This Too!
Our 1:1 clients pay $3000+ for us to launch their podcast for them. You’ll get the exact same process, resources and guidance in a small group format. We’re committed to your launch success so we’re going to give you $100 or a $125 SoundAdvice gift card when you launch within 2 weeks of course completion.
