To excel as a world class show, consistent, excellent audio quality is a requirement. We coach you in getting great equipment and adhere to strict processes (noise reduction, equalization, leveling, file structure, etc.) to transform your source recordings into excellent end results for your audience to cherish.
Podcast Art Design
People judge books by their cover. We work with you to create great cover art as well as images to help promote the show. Podcast art should be beautiful and legible when displayed as an icon or on a fullscreen.
When launching, it is important to get to the New and Noteworthy section of iTunes. Success is based on downloads and reviews on the iTunes platform. We help you cultivate a powerful launch.
Each show is an opportunity to enhance and design your message. Repetition is integral in memory cognition. Branding each show with unique, eye-catching design will enhance brand awareness.
Writing well organized index information into each podcast will send a message that you are a serious, organized content producer. While other shows will be in 100 different iTunes folders, we ensure a well indexed show.
Search Engine Optimization
The world is full of people searching for what you are providing. You might be the answer to their prayers… but first you need to appear where they are looking. We use only white-hat SEO strategies to improve your chances of being found where you are sought.
This means submitting to: iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, BlackBerry, SoundCloud, DoubleTwist, Zune, Player.FM, iHeartRadio, Podbay and Spreaker. Each new episode will automatically appear everywhere. No extra publishing work included.
Show Ideation and Execution
How do we make a show that crosses boundaries? What is remarkable and how do we get there? We work with those seeking to poke the box and make something world class.
When we set up podcasts, we construct a publication system that is easy to operate. After the initial setup, we work with you to go out on your own. To produce you can follow our process: upload, link, publish. You will not need us forever, but we will be here if you do.

We debuted at #2 in the Business Category of iTunes and in the Top 30 of ALL podcasts in iTunes, and it was no accident thanks to his advice. My team and I were blown away by his dedication and knowledge regarding podcasts, and we recommend him to anyone who wants to take their podcast seriously."− Ali Brown, creator and host of Glambition™ Radio
"Being a podcast host is more than a way to drive traffic to my website. I love that podcasting is a way to dive deep into the worlds of industry leaders and add value to them. As a host, it builds my authority and expertise, while in turn building by brand. It is also really really fun meandering through a conversation and learning new things from inspiring people."− Nick Onken, Host of SHOPTALK Radio

"I wanted to launch a podcast to broaden my audience and provide a new content stream to my followers. But how to get it set up and really do it right, without driving myself crazy?
Working with Ian and the Freedom Podcasting team is one of the best business decisions I've made.
Not only did Ian help me refine the vision for the show, his launch strategy helped my Crave Cast premier at #1 on iTunes in it's first two weeks! Six months later, I have paid sponsors, incredible access to experts that I'm excited to interview and a fun audience that I love creating new episodes for. "− Alexandra Jamieson, Author, Podcast host, Cravings Whisperer, The Crave Cast
"I have been working with Ian, V and the team at Freedom Podcasting for over a year as they produce my Inventor's Mind Podcast. They are a pleasure to work with: always on top of things, ready to brainstorm ideas to improve and promote the podcast, and exuding warmth and kindness. The process couldn't be simpler either. All I have to do is record the show and put the file in Dropbox. They do all the rest. Truly their name says it all. I give Freedom my highest recommendation. "− Christopher Hawker, IDSA -President, Trident Design, Inventors Mind
