Learn to podcast the smart way – with Pat Flynn
So you’d like to start a podcast? Awesome. Starting a podcast is one of the best ways to build an audience and grow your business (even from scratch), but the process for getting started can feel daunting. What equipment and software should you use? How do you land interviews with big-name guests? How do you get your show loaded into Apple Podcasts? And even after your show goes live, how are you going to make sure people find it?
I’m going to help you cut through the confusion—to not only learn how to properly plan and launch your podcast, but make sure it gets found, too.
In Power-Up Podcasting®, I’ll walk you step-by-step through the entire process of launching a great podcast. With high-quality videos (that aren’t too long) and examples along the way, you’ll have your new podcast up and running in no time, so you can start growing and delighting your audience.
Your audience is waiting to hear from you.
Hi, I’m Pat Flynn. I’ve started a lot of podcasts. Here’s how I can help you.
I’ve been podcasting since 2010, beginning with the Smart Passive Income Podcast, my flagship show that’s consistently ranked in iTunes as a top business podcast.
But I didn’t stop there! I’ve also created four other podcasts, including the AskPat Podcast, All of Your Beeswax (which I create with my son), and the legacy shows the FoodTruckr Podcast and 1-Day Business Breakthrough (with my friend Chris Ducker).”
Throughout the course of creating, launching, and marketing these podcasts, I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t, how to grow a show, and which successes can and can’t be replicated.
And over the past few years, I’ve applied a lot of what I’ve learned to help thousands of podcasters get up and running on the technical side of things through my free Podcasting Tutorial.
But in the process, I’ve also heard from many of those podcasters that they need more than just technical help. They need guidance launching and marketing their show. They need a way to ask questions of other podcasters. They need someone who’s been there and done it to help guide them through the whole process.
That’s why I created Power-Up Podcasting®, to help aspiring podcasters learn from my successes—and failures—getting my own podcasts off the ground.
Power-Up Podcasting® gives you everything you need to start your podcast successfully, including technical help, a marketing plan that works, and access to a community of other podcasters ready and willing to share their advice with you.
What students say
“Even in my 60s, I went for it, because Pat showed me it’s doable…”
“Even in my 60s, I went for it, because Pat showed me it’s doable, and I don’t believe that there’s anything that you can pay for that will give you the feeling that I’m experiencing myself doing my show. Nothing. There’s no amount of money, because this feeling comes from what I’m already getting back, and I’ve only just gotten started.”
