LightningPod

You should have a podcast. Let's make one together.

Podcasts are booming. In America, 116 million people listen to them every month, up from 57 million in 2016 (that's a 103% increase). Spoken-word audio is a powerful, flexible medium that can support and enhance your existing work and creativity.

Whether you're looking to build a bigger following, connect with customers or employees, or just get your story out there, podcasts should be part of your plan. And even if you have no experience with podcasting, LightningPod can help.

Running a successful podcast is a lot more complicated than uploading an MP3 and waiting for downloads. We'll teach you the best practices in the podcast industry, built on years of experience and encompassing every aspect of production.
Personalized service
After you fill out one of our surveys (see below), we'll schedule a one-hour virtual consultation to start addressing your podcasting goals, or your company's. After the call, we'll follow up with specific recommendations for your next steps.
Continuous support
Until your project is done, we'll be there to help. We'll work around your schedule to deliver what you need. And if you're integrating a podcast with pre-existing marketing, PR, or other operations, we'll bend over backwards to make that happen smoothly.
