This course helps you avoid pitfalls that other courses don’t teach you. You’ll master how to choose your host and guests so your listeners will want to share episodes and talk about the value your company provides, determine the best venue to host your podcast, the logic to setting up systems that work for everyone, as well as how to submit to all podcast services. As a bonus, at the end of this course, you’ll be able to download checklists and a set of templates for typical podcast graphics, social media sharing, service icons and more.

Susan’s Favorite Tools

Google Drive – so many tools. This one is handy to create folders of items that need to be shared with legal professionals, family members, company board members and more.

Google Alerts – set up alerts to see who is talking about you or your company.
