Unland Media Consulting

Need help planning your podcast?

I listen to a lot of podcasts, and I’ve thought a lot about what it takes to make a podcast engaging and relevant to the people you want to serve, in a way that helps you achieve your goals. Visit podcastcanvas.com to download a free one-page planner.

If you’d like more help, I have a few spots available to help you take your podcast from notion to reality:

  • Let’s Get Started package: I will work with your organization to go from concept to first podcast episode. We’ll make sure we have a solid concept that draws on the passion you share with present and future customers, and we’ll create a plan that encompasses format, length, frequency, distribution and technology.
  • Let’s Get Started Lite package: A stripped-down coaching series that gets you from zero to Episode 1 in a shorter time
  • Let’s Keep Going package: I will act as an ongoing resource as you continue to produce your podcast, keeping the production cycle on track, learning from the metrics to increase listenership and refine the message, and advising on how to use social media and other channels to reach more people.

I can help.

Let me make it easier for you to do two important things:

  • Demonstrate your expertise in a way that puts your audience’s needs first;
  • Build and serve a community that will spread your message for you.

How can I do that? By applying the lessons drawn from my experience:

  • As a reporter and editor for 15 years in mainstream journalism;
  • As co-founder of the Capital Ideas community of business owners helping business owners;
  • As founder of Seen and Heard in Edmonton, an engine for paying attention to Edmonton’s bloggers and podcasters.

The same lessons I’ve learned in those venues can help you succeed.

Interested? Let’s talk.
