[ Who is this for? ]
If you’re in podcasting, Creator Collective is for you. Here’s how we might be able to help you, depending on where you are:
I run a podcast with a small-to-medium size listenership, and loyal audience: Congrats! We’re here to help you build on that success and make engaging and monetizing your listener base seamless. In addition to putting you in touch with other podcasters who you ask questions, hit up for editing help, and cross-promote with, our tools make it easy to put a simple link in your show notes that you can use to paywall premium content on a subscription or one-time basis. You can use your own branding and terms (no more worrying about directing people to Patreon). We can also run and analyze your listener survey, automatically send out an email to your listeners when you post a new show, and set up live shows and your merchandise shop for you once you get to that point.
I’m an indie podcaster, looking to build a career in the industry: Exciting! We’re here to help you showcase your best work, learn from industry veterans, and get discovered by people looking for talented folks like you who want someone young and scrappy to help them with everything from editing to doing a tape sync. You’ll also get access to all the latest industry data, so you can stay up on what’s going on.
I run a podcasting network or studio, and I hate dealing with all the operational nitty gritty: Oh, we’re here for you. Use us to figure out the latest advertising and freelancing rates, find last-minute talent for tape syncs and transcriptions, get discovered by advertisers and draft up IOs/invoices (stop wasting time on outbound cold emails), and manage your merchandise store and live shows. Heck, we’ll even make you an app if that’s what you want.
