New Podcast Shows

This form serves two purposes. First for us to get the information we need to setup your podcast show. Second is for you to have a checklist of the things you need to start your show.

Leave blank if not required
Leave blank to use the one provided above

Details about your podcast

The name of your show
A short acronym for your show. For example The Wellness Pro Show = TWP, The Brave Exchange = TBE
We use this so the title of each epsiode isn't pushed off the screen by the show name
Short tag line for the show
Should include things like what the show is about, why people should listen to it, who is presenting and why they are the best people to listen to.
Three can be selected. This is the category your show will be listed under in iTunes. A listing of all categories can be found here: http://bit.ly/1fZZeNK
This category will help iTunes work out what your show is about
This category will help iTunes work out what your show is about
The by line on the iTunes page
This email address will be *publicly displayed* and is owner of the iTunes directory listing.
example: Adelaide, Australia. This does not effect which iTunes store you are listed in.
What copyright notices to display in iTunes and embedded into the MP3 files
Example:
© All rights reserved - YOUR NAME/BUSINESS NAME
Creative Commons (learn more here creativecommons.org)
Does your podcast contain explicit content
I need this form, artwork and music before I can start getting the podcast setup
Tuesday - Friday are the 'best'. Any day will work fine.
iTunes is recommending not to have episode numbers or a show code in the title. If you do want them that is OK put down what you would like in the other box

Items to be submitted via Dropbox

This section deals with files that need to be sent to me and is just a check list for you.
Once this form is filled in I will create a Dropbox folder for your show. You can then use this Dropbox folder to send me these files.
There is no way to send the files using this form as the music is often quite large.
Much like music album artwork this is the image that will be seen in podcast directories and when the episode is playing on a phone. If you want to get some artwork cheap then check out Fiverr
This is the music that will play at the start and end of your show. Other bumpers can be made to fit in between different segments of the show. It is much like the theme song played at the start of a TV show. The music should reflect the feel of your show. A good place music can be purchased is www.audiojungle.net

Bundle Addons

Podcast Hosting

In order for me to setup your website to host your podcast, i need access to your WordPress site and access to your website hosting.
The address (URL) of the website being used to display the podcast
I use the WordPress Admin account to setup your site to deliver the podcast feed. The feed is what your listeners will use to get the latest episode. I also install an online form which is how you can provide me with information on each episode, title, description etc.
I use FTP to upload the produced episodes to your website. I use FTP as there is no size limit on the recordings that can be uploaded. Often WordPress is limited to less than the size of a normal 30min episode.

Ongoing Editing Production

The tiers are per episode so you can bump up a tier if a particular episode requires something extra.

 

All tiers include:

  • Audio balance to ensure the volume of the episode is consistent across the track.
  • Top and tailing of the recording
  • Adding the intro and outro music to the start and end of the episode
  • Uploading the episode to the required hosting service and scheduling it for release.
  • Basic background noise removal for things like air conditioning

Basic: $40/episode + GST

  • Single Recording session
  • 3 edits to the recording where you can specify the time codes and I will make the edit
  • For example phone ringing, coughing, saying the wrong name of a product etc

Advanced: $55/episode + GST

  • Additional full background noise removal up to what is possible.
  • For example traffic is very hard to remove due to the shift in sound. Wind can be tricky to remove but the results are generally very good.
  • Shrinking of long pauses ‘dead air’ in the recording
  • Creation of a snippet from the audio for social media sharing or use as a preroll (before the intro) teaser.
  • 10 edits to the recording where you can specify the time codes and I will make the edit
  • Extra edits are $2.2 each
  • Advanced audio repair for things like echo/reverb, extremely quite or clipped sound.
  • Add up to 2 extra music breaks like between a pre-recorded intro and the separately recorded main content.

Advanced+: $55/episode + $2/min for the first 30min then $1/min after that  + GST

  • Includes everything in the advanced tier
  • I listen to the episode and edit out things that don’t add value to the episode.
  • For example stammers, stutters, repeated word, excessive Ums/ahhs
