What's holding your podcast back? We're here to help you find out!
A Podcast Critique is for someone who is looking for feedback on their podcast from a person who is experienced in the field of podcasting. The goal of this critique is to help your podcast sound better, fill any holes in your online presence, and give you ideas for improvement!
We all know how asking friends and family for feedback works... If you want critical advice with actionable steps for improvement, then our Podcast Critique is for you! You already spend so much time creating your show, before making another episode, let's look at where you can improve!
A podcast is a lot of work, and it's not just about the actual podcast itself. Growing a podcast isn't just about having a good idea, it's about the implementation. Things like sound quality, social media presence, being published to the right platforms, and strategic show notes, just to name a few. If you want your show to grow, you need to make sure you take care of everything. Sometimes podcasters are missing just one of those pieces and the show lacks growth because of it. Our Podcast Critique will identify anything that's lacking so your podcast isn't held back.
After working with podcasters for the last 5 years, as well as over 10 years of audio engineering experience, you can say we have a good ear for what makes a podcast sound good. But podcasting doesn’t end at good sounding audio. It's all the back end pieces like show notes, audiograms, and graphics that we do regularly for our clients. You wouldn’t believe how many podcasts don’t utilize their show notes to include a call to action link for interested listeners. Not including a call to action leaves your listener lost when they want to find out more about you and your brand.
Think of us as your personal podcast coach who comes in and evaluates everything about your podcast so that we can suggest improvements that will help your show to grow. If there’s something missing, confusing, or some room for improvement, you can bet we will bring it to light. We will go through your podcast episodes and comb the internet for all the places you exist. We will consume your show just like a new listener and provide all ideas and insights we come up with!
The entire Podcast Critique, written report, and 1:1 Zoom call are a one time cost of $397.
If you are unhappy for whatever reason, let us know why and you won’t have to pay. There’s zero risk for you. Let us show you what we can do to improve your podcast!
You might be putting out more episodes with the same issues, missing out by losing listeners and growth opportunities. Let's take care of these issues now, help you improve, and fill any missing holes! Let’s get started!
“We cannot speak more highly of how happy we were in working with Pleasant Podcasts! Gino was thorough and detail-oriented when reviewing our show. He provided a clear strategy for us to make the necessary changes for our podcast to reach and impact listeners in more powerful ways. Gino’s approach is far from broad, and uniquely offered feedback that was tailored to our show, and for our audience. If you are looking for high level podcast critique, from a first class person, look no further than Gino at Pleasant Podcasts.”
-Justin Bentivegna from The Built to Last Podcast
“Gino was amazing! The feedback I received was helpful, thoughtful, insightful and will definitely help grow my podcast. He was very detailed with his critique and made sure that he gave suggestions for every aspect of the podcast. I could tell that he really took the time to listen with intention and give honest feedback. Any podcaster new or old needs Gino's services. It has been a game changer for my podcast and I will be implementing all his suggestions for a better listener experience.”
-Danielle Turner from The Purple Butterfly Podcast
"My brother and I had a podcast for three years and were confused on why we couldn't gain a viewership. We added and subtracted segments, brought in guests, etc. It became really frustrating. We were doing our best but couldn't figure out how to grow. That's when we realized we needed some official feedback. When we found Podcast Critique, we were desperate. We had been looking for help for a while and couldn't find anything for less than $800. Podcast critique was totally affordable compared to other services. I signed up and crossed my fingers. Thankfully, Gino came through. Not only was he thorough in his examination and critique of our work, but he provided a lot of solutions that we could implement. It was such a relief to receive a typed up breakdown of his analysis and then get to talk about it with him for an hour. After the meeting, we began to see clearly. We learned a lot and are now in the planning phase of a whole new show. We're excited but more importantly, we feel like we're moving in this new direction with confidence and clarity. Thanks Gino!"
