Ask Me Anything About Launching A Podcast (Webinar Replay)

by Cliff Ravenscraft on March 12, 2016

I recently hosted a free webinar, “Ask Me Anything About Launching A Podcast.” The purpose was to give people a taste of what my weekly group coaching calls are like during my, four week, Podcasting A to Z online coaching program.

The video below is an edited replay of the webinar featuring the most relevant questions for those who are seeking to launch their podcast.

There was no “hard sell” during the webinar. The goal was simply to showcase the level of information and value that I bring to the who might be be thinking about signing up for Podcasting A to Z.

In this episode of Podcast Answer Man, I share an amazing new resource for securing a custom theme song made just for your podcast. I first heard of Todd & Emily Marriott, from Gifty Song, after they had created a custom theme song for my friend Dan Miller. After hearing it a few times, I fell in love with that song and I actually look forward to hearing it at the end of Dan’s podcast each week.

I had been thinking about contacting Todd & Emily about creating a song for my Pursuing A Balanced Life podcast. Recently Todd and Emily actually reached out to me and wanted to know if I would would be interested in a theme song for my own podcast and was wondering if it worked out, would I be interested in promoting their custom song writing service to my community.

I was so happy with the process of working with them and beyond thrilled with the new custom theme song that they created, that I knew that I had to have them come on the show so that I could introduce them to you.

One of the top five things that I am most often asked about is whether or not you can play music in your podcast.

I created this extended edition of Podcast Answer Man to serve as a resource that I can point folks to as questions related to music in a podcast continue to come in.

Topic starts at 10 minutes and 30 seconds.
