A Step-By-Set Guide to Hiring a Podcast Manager

Navigating the Process of Bringing a Podcast Manager on Board

Whether you’re a seasoned podcaster or just getting started, outsourcing some podcast magic to a Podcast Manager can make your life a whole lot easier.

Why consider a Podcast Manager?

There comes a time when juggling everything on your own gets a bit overwhelming. That’s where a Podcast Manager steps in – to sprinkle some organisational fairy dust and let you focus on what you do best – creating content!

Meeting your potential Podcast Manager

So, you’re thinking of taking the plunge and hiring a podcast manager? Awesome! Here’s a quick rundown of what to expect.

  1. Discovery call: Once you’ve identified a potential match, book a discovery call. Ask questions, share your dreams, and see if the vibes click.
  2. Money talk: Don’t be shy about asking for pricing details upfront. You don’t want any surprises!
  3. The proposal and contract: If the discovery call feels right, your potential Podcast Manager will send over a proposal and a contract. Take your time to digest it all, ask questions, and when you’re ready, seal the deal!

Onboarding: Let the podcasting adventure begin!

So, you’ve signed on the dotted line, and it’s time to get cozy with your new Podcast Manager. Here’s a sneak peek into what to expect during the onboarding process:

  1. Expectations & boundaries: Like any relationship, communication is key. Understand the timelines, how and when to submit episodes, and what happens if life throws a curveball.
  2. Credentials & handshakes: Share the necessary info – website access, podcast host logins, the whole shebang. It’s a trust exercise, but we’re in this together!
  3. Smooth sailing ahead: Once the onboarding dust settles, you’ll find your groove. Episodes will flow seamlessly, and you’ll have more time to bask in the joy of creating.

Remember, a Podcast Manager isn’t a mind reader. If something doesn’t quite jive with your vision, speak up! We’re here to make your podcasting journey as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
