Should I Charge Extra For Podcast Editing Clients Who Provide Files Late? – PEM0055

Should I Charge Extra For Podcast Editing Clients Who Provide Files Late? – PEM0055
Editing podcasts can be a lot of work, and when clients provide files late or make last-minute changes, it can be frustrating. As you already know, getting late files can be a HUGE disruption to your business and your life. But what should you do about it? Should you charge a punitive fee? Should you push back due dates? Should you just fire the client? Yeah, there are options, but navigating them isn't necessarily easy and, ultimately, it's up to you to decide what's best for your business. If you find that late files are becoming a regular problem, it may be worth instituting a policy that charges extra for them. This will help to offset the extra work that you have to put in, and it will also send a message to your clients that such behavior is not acceptable. So what do you think? Should editors charge extra for late podcast files? Listen and share your thoughts.

How to Promote Your Podcast Editing Business Without Spamming Everyone – PEM0054
Starting a podcast editing business is hard. It's a service-based business, with a ton of technical skills to pick up. But don't forget that as a business owner, you also win the job of business owner (which also means business promoter). That's part of what makes it so hard to get started.  You have to balance all the things. You have to spin all the plates. And at the end of a 14-hour day, when you realize that you don't have any new business in the pipeline, it's YOUR job to go out and get some new business. That's when it's so tempting to just hop on Facebook or Reddit and start spamming all the groups with, "Want editing? I can help." And then the group admin's ban hammer strikes hard, you get booted from all the groups, and even your closest childhood friends won't talk to you anymore, either. Okay. Maybe not that extreme.  But there has to be a better way. And that's what we're going to talk about - some ideas for how you can get the word out about what you're doing without opening up that can of potted meat byproduct. We may not have your specific answer, but we'll share our thoughts, brainstorm together, and maybe we'll all come out a little stronger.

How to Rebrand As a Podcast Editor – PEM0053
Do you feel like you're stuck in a rut as a podcast editor? Does it seem like you're never able to land a new client? Or worse, that you're attracting the wrong clients? Maybe you feel like you're spinning your wheels, or you know you're getting some traction on social media or traffic to your website, but it never seems to convert. It doesn't turn into anything. If that's the case, it's possible that you need to look at your branding - to make sure that it's speaking directly to that ideal client you want to meet. Sure, it can be scary (and humbling) to think about blowing up the brand you spent months or years building. But if that's what's keeping you from getting some traction, it might be time to take a look at that. Listen to discover what's leading a couple of our beloved Yetis to step into the process of rebranding, hear what they're thinking about (and afraid of), and discover some keys that might help you avoid the same mistakes we've made. What we discussedWhat is branding, really? What are some indications that it might be time to rebrand? What should we watch out for? How important is a mission statement in branding? How can you know if your branding is on point? We stream live to (Facebook Page) every other week.  This episode was edited by Alejandro Ramirez.

How to Use Survivor Bias to Your Advantage – PEM0052
How do you make decisions about what's possible or the right thing to do? Do you look for examples of success to the exclusion of contrary information? That's Survivor Bias. And it's all over in the podcasting space. I mean, if we didn't think we could be Joe Rogan, would we even try?  Hopefully. But the downside of Survivor Bias is that it's possible we might toil for years on the faulty assumption that something's possible. Or that the way it's always been done is the right way to do it. But that if that's not the case? What if we guide our clients based on faulty information? Listen as we explore the concept of Survivor Bias and how it can affect us, our businesses, and our clients. We don't claim to know the answers, but we want to ask the questions because we want to see you, ourselves, and our collective clients succeed.

What to do when you mess up as a podcast editor – PEM0050
Being a podcast editor can seem like it's all fun and games until you mess up on someone else's show. Then it can be scary. But let's face it: no matter how much time and care we take, and how much we invest in quality control, it's inevitable that there will be mistakes. Maybe even major mistakes. Join us as we talk about some of our mistakes and the strategies we've developed to make things right (or as right as possible) so that we can create the best possible outcome for everyone.

Crafting Packages and Prices for Podcasters: A Mastermind Session –PEM0049
You’d be wrong to think that prices are based on a simple equation. You’d also be wrong if you think podcasters want the packages you’re selling right now. The joy of a new, dynamic industry like ours is also it’s curse: We are constantly having to adapt creative minds and their new ideas. So what strategies do you use to determine what to provide clients and what that service is worth? Mailbag: Do you have a system for creating packages and prices? We’d love to hear from you. (because Carrie really wants to do a mailbag/AMA episode)   We learned a few things throughout this episode, but one of them was how much strategies vary from editor to editor.  That editors are constantly re-evaluating and refining offerings and rates. And that packages rarely seem to suit podcasters (which is something to explore on its own in a future episode). When you quoted your first client, did you pull a number out of the air?  If you did it’s normal. We aren’t MBAs. We’re editors– part artists, part techies– who had this wild idea to invent a job that is challenging, flexible and rewarding. That’s why we started this show: to work through these sorts of things with our community… to mastermind with you. We asked our live audience what models they used and shared our own. Here were the answers...  Hourly  Per Episode  Day Rates  Project-based Value-based We also covered the pros and cons of various billing cycles. Surprisingly, some of are moving away from monthly billing. Scope Creep and a la carte packages It was pretty well agreed that no one package is right for the majority of podcasters. There’s always something that’s not quite right. Or a podcaster wants more than agreed to without, ahem, wanting to pay for it. A la carte and a clear contract may be your best bet for staving off scope creep.If you're like us, you have things to say about what we talked about in this episode. If you're a member of our community, (you most certainly can do that). You might even see a live editing session or product demo!

Podcast Editor Websites – PEM0048
Podcast editors: Do you have a website? Do you know whether your website is working for or against your business? Most of us are incredibly good at podcast production and might even have some basic web design skills. But that doesn't mean that we're all experts on branding, user experience, accessibility, and more. We know that a great website can be an incredible asset for our businesses. But how can we make the most of our websites? How can we know for sure what we should include and what we should leave out? How can we know when we should just do it ourselves and when it's time to bring in a pro to help us? We don't know either... But Tara Kelly of Tansy Aster Creative does. She's a brand strategist, web developer, video and music producer, copywriter, and so much more. And she's going to be joining us to share what we need to know. We don't plan for this to be just another one of those "why you need a website" episodes. We're planning to talk about what's important to make sure you include, what you might want to leave out, common mistakes, some show-and-tell examples, and more. And, of course, if you're joining us live in the chat, you'll have your chance to share your questions so that we can do our best to make sure we're getting you exactly what you need right now. Make sure you don't miss this :) Links And Resources (See the website teardowns (starts at about 33 minutes in)) (Tansy Aster) (Tansy Aster Audio) (Termageddon) (get a 10% discount, qualifying purchases benefit Tara) (WCAG Guidelines) (Web Accessibility) (Elegant Themes (makers of Divi)) (Google Lighthouse) About Tara Kelly (in her own words) Storytelling is my life, and I’m always working to get to the next level.

How to Optimize Your Podcast Editing Workflow, Fire Clients, and Launch New Businesses - PEM0046
Producing a podcast is a LOT of work, and it can be confusing. Fortunately, there are editors like us who not only take on some of the workload, but also bring our expertise and structure to the process. And as an added benefit, we are always looking for ways to improve what we do, for our benefit and our clients. We focus on improving our processes, get better at identifying issues, improving client relationships, and more. However, that doesn't mean that every client is a fit for us and sometimes we have to make the tough call - to decide that it's time to part ways with a client. Of course, even in parting, how we do it matters.
