If you're a podcast editor who struggles to find clients OR the right clients, read on.
I'm in an interesting position and it's all my fault.
I've been sharing my podcast editing learning experiences online (here and in my newsletter) while I've been improving my own technical skills at the same time as I've been doing client work.
Then I started to share the business pain points I had. And then created some live events online and a nice, cozy LinkedIn group for us to share our podcast editing questions, ideas, etc.
And I love all this. But I guess my sharing has its consequences, lol. Daily now I'm getting emails asking how to get podcast editing clients. To be clear, I am NOT an expert at this. But I have reached my own goal of how many clients I wanted. Podcast editing is not my entire business, but it's a large part of it. And I do get editing inquiries weekly now.
I don't think that we can all do the same things to get the clients we need, the clients that we want. I think we have to tailor our client seeking efforts to our personalities, schedules and energy levels. I'm loud and write and talk to think, so posting a lot online works for me, both as an organizational tool and as a promotional tool. But if you're more introverted, than you'll need a different approach. A plan that fits you.
I taught language outside of the formal educational system for years and loved it. And then I hit a very real burn out point. So the last thing I want to do is teach again. Anything. BUT I want to share the things I've learned and have seen others do to successfully get podcast editing clients.
So I'm going to give this a go. If I don't hate it, I'll turn it into a longer course OR a self paced course OR something else someone more skilled at this will inevitably suggest along the way.
Please don't take my hesitance at doing this as a lack of enthusiasm. I am passionate about connecting podcast editors to both other editors as well as people looking for editors. Very passionate about it. So let's channel that energy into something tangible for YOU, the skilled podcast editor who is struggling with finding clients.
If you're a brave soul, here's the interest form. This will be a paid course, $99 for the first group. More details after you complete the below form.
