Podcasting for Authors

So you want to write and publish a book?  Here at the Author Academy we want to make a difference by guiding you step by step through the whole process of your writing journey, making sure that it's fun all the way!

We hear so many horror stories of how people have been treated by different publishing companies. Unfortunately, they get burned in so many ways that they end up very disheartened and want to give up on their dream of becoming a published author!

That is such a shame because their story is a gift for the rest of us. We want to make sure that your story reaches the hearts and minds of the readers just waiting to read your story. That is why we want to make a difference!

Here at the Author Academy, we work with you and guide you through the whole process of getting your book written, published, printed and in your hands! At this stage of the process the heavy lifting is done by us, so you can relax and take a breath after all your hard work of writing the story.

We don’t take you on as a client and forget about you as many of these companies do. We are always available to discuss any concerns you may have and explain everything that is required to get your book finished.

Once your book has been written, proofread/edited, formatted, designed and a beautiful cover created we help you with the printing quote so that you get the best possible outcome.

Once you have your books in your hands we also have ways of helping you promote and sell your books. We have an online bookstore that gives a higher return on investment compared to other bookstores. We believe the author deserves the money for all their hard work. We also have training courses available to help you with marketing your book further afield.

If you are look for a company that will look after you every step of the way then you have found us. Please let us know how we can help you achieve your dream.

We are looking forward to bringing your book to life!

Podcasts have exploded in popularity in recent years. They offer a great way for business owners and experts to build a loyal fan base and share their expertise with a wider audience. It’s a fun and easy marketing strategy that only requires a microphone, some editing software, and a topic you love to talk about. So, why do listeners love podcasts so much?

Content for Busy People

For busy people, podcasts are the perfect way to consume content. You can listen to them while you’re working, commuting, waiting somewhere, doing housework, working out, and so on. You can take this content with you anywhere you go throughout the day. Some podcasts release video versions or text resources to go with episodes for listeners who want to focus more closely.

Informative and Entertaining

Podcasts are fun and they offer a great way to learn while you listen. They’re usually quite casual and not overly produced. A podcaster doesn’t need a “radio voice” or any kind of slick production. People love the relaxed nature of this form of content. It’s like having the TV on while you do other things.

You can build your expert status through podcast guesting. Your host’s invitation is an important endorsement of your work and they’ll highlight your message by promoting it to their audience.

Are you ready to get started?

There’s a Podcast For That

No matter what topic you’re interested in, there’s a podcast about that topic. Type any keywords into a podcast search engine and you’ll see just how wide a variety of topics are available. Podcasters are passionate about their interests and this enthusiasm comes through. It’s often a deep dive on a topic that you don’t get in a blog post or other type of content.

A Personal Connection

Listeners develop a personal connection with the podcasts they enjoy. It’s like having a conversation with a friend or being read a story. Since we hear the podcaster’s actual voice, we feel a human connection. This is why it’s such a great way to build an enthusiastic fan base.

An Easy Way to Learn

Compared to other types of content, audio offers a very easy way to learn something. All you need to do is listen. People who don’t like to read can get the same information through listening. Many podcasters release videos of their podcasts as well for those who prefer watching video content.

Getting Started with Podcasting

Podcasting offers an extremely easy way to connect personally with your audience and give them the help they need.

Thinking you might want to try it? A good place to start is by appearing as a guest on podcasts. Reach out to podcasters and offer to appear on their show to share your expertise with their audience. This will help you expand your audience, but also get a feel for what it takes to produce this type of content.
