When you make the decision to launch a podcast, it's easy to get overwhelmed with questions:
1. What should I name the show?
2. How do I develop a format?
3. How do I get an open/close produced?
4. How do I find a co-host?
5. How can I be different in my space?
6. How much money should I spend?
7. What do I do about a logo?
8. What podcast hosting service should I use?
There are plenty of blogs, podcasts and videos available to answer some of these questions. However, it can be challenging to sort out which advice is best for you, and it can all get overwhelming. You may think about hiring someone to help, but finding the right person could also be challenging. This is especially true if you're concerned about budget.
I've helped new podcasters answer all of these questions and launch their shows. I've also helped people improve their existing podcasts. Sometimes clients want something as simple as getting a few questions answered. Other times, they need concept consulting and production assistance.
So, I currently charge $50.00 an hour for my podcasting services. Many times, I'm able to answer several questions in an hour or less, and I make sure that I provide a lot of value in that time frame. So, it adequately allows me to provide my clients with meaningful assistance, and it allows me to make something reasonable in the process.
There are household appliances that don't do enough to justify a $50 price tag, and my clients tell me that my work is money well spent.

Aspiring podcasters know they need to put their show on iTunes. So, a common question becomes - How do I get my podcast on iTunes? It's probably easier than you think, but there's another step you have to take first:
Get podcast hosting.
iTunes is going to ask you for your podcast feed. When you sign up with a hosting service, they'll provide you with one. There are several services to choose from, like Libsyn, Buzzsprout and Blubrry.
