Online marketplaces and social media groups can make the experience of looking for a podcast editor frustrating.
Even the mention in a Facebook group that you are looking for help will prompt dozens of DMs, you’ll receive requests by strangers to DM them, and you could be answering random questions for hours! Who has time for all of that?
The Podcast Editor Academy can make the process much more simple – and private – with a process we’ve been using for years.
Step 1: Create an online application
*To make things easier for you, we’ve made the following Google Form template available for you: (log into your Google account, then click here to make a copy). Clicking this link will make a copy that you own and manage. Feel free to make any changes you wish, including adding or removing questions.
You may be familiar with building survey forms, like TypeForm, JotForm or SurveyMonkey. Those work too!
In the example of a Google Form, you simple copy & paste the URL from the “Send” button and email it to Steve@SteveStewart.me.
At that point, we share the link with members of our Podcast Editor Academy.
Nobody knows you are, and they provide you with the information YOU want in order to find one, two, or maybe three people to interview for the position.
Step 3: Wait, then connect
Within 48-72 hours you will have a few submissions to review.
Contact the 1, 2, or 3 individuals you think are the best fit and schedule a time to chat.
Use this process to find a Podcast Editor, Show Notes Writer, or even a Podcast Manager to do all the things!
