There are many great podcast production companies out there, but how do you know which one is right for your show?

The first question you should ask yourself is "Do I need a full-service podcast production company or a podcast editing service"? There are substantial price differences when determining if you need either a podcast audio editing service or a full-service podcast production company.

Full-Service Podcast Services

Full-service podcast production companies are essentially a one-stop shop to build, maintain, market and promote high-quality podcasts. This will typically include a range of more-involved work such as the following:

  • Strategic direction,
  • equipment and lighting consultation,
  • guest coordination,
  • podcast artwork,
  • transcriptions and show notes,
  • advertising placements,
  • growth and marketing.

The cost involved in full-service podcast production will typically range in the thousands of dollars.

Here are some other things to consider when choosing a full-service podcast production company:

- What is their experience? Make sure they have produced shows similar to yours in terms of content and style.

- How well do they understand your vision for the show? They must be able to translate your ideas into audio form.

Audio Production Agency or Service

Alternatively, there are much cheaper and more efficient ways to get your podcast professionally prepared for release. Audio production services will typically concentrate on audio production and engineering and leave the actual recording, strategy and growth to you. This would typically include the following:

  • Audio production and editing,
  • outros and intros,
  • music effects.

The cost involved in this type of podcast production will typically range from around $100-$200 per episode.

Here are some other things to consider when choosing a audio editing service:

- What is their turnaround time? You don't want to be waiting weeks or even months for your episodes to be released.

- What is their price point? Make sure it's within your budget.

Once you've considered all of these factors, you should be able to narrow down your choices and find the best podcast production company for your show!
