How can you find more listeners for your podcast?

Whether you’ve already launched your podcast or you’re just getting started, have you done everything you can do to maximize your marketing efforts?

If you’re like most new podcasters, marketing is a totally foreign planet. Which social media channels are working? Do you need a website? And how can you really find new listeners (and customers)?!

In this self-paced online course, we’ll walk through the essentials of podcast marketing to help you find more great listeners and grow your audience and influence. If you’re a new podcaster, we’ll help you create an initial launch plan, and if you’re a current podcaster, we’ll help you create a weekly marketing plan, as well as a bigger-picture strategy.

VALUE: $600 FREE!

girl, i get it. i've been there.

I’m Melissa, a creative dork & podcast producer with an unreasonable love of Excel and problem solving. (And mint chocolate chip ice cream, books, and my icon Hermione Granger.)

And combined, my two podcasts had almost 60,000 downloads last year (2019).

I host and produce Everything is Teachable, the podcast that takes you behind-the-scenes to learn how everyday creators have transformed their skills and passions into online businesses. Within our first month, we hit the charts as the #2 Career podcast in the USA and a top 20 Business podcast in the USA.

I’m also the co-host of Book Smart, a podcast where we read and share books that have a positive influence on our daily lives. 

Outside the microphone, I’ve been an online (and in-person!) teacher since 2015, with a combined 4000+ students in my classes and workshops.

It’s my passion for teaching that brought me to start a podcast in the first place, and I later founded Wit & Wire to help more passionate creators like you expand their reach and revenue through podcasting.

14-Day Satisfaction Guarantee

I know you’ve got what it takes to produce amazing podcast episodes that your listeners will love. And I know my experience as both a podcaster and a teacher can help you get there. But you don’t even have to take my word for it!

I want to make this as risk-free as possible, and I also want to empower you to get started right away. That’s why we offer a full 14 days to explore the course, the materials, and even join a group coaching session. If you still aren’t satisfied, email us to show that you’ve done the homework and we’ll process your refund.

Who is this course for?

This is for you if...
  • You're a brand new podcaster, and you want to learn how to put your podcast’s best foot forward. You want to make sure you’re doing as much as you can do to market your show...but without going insane.
  • You already have a podcast, but you feel like your marketing could use some improvement.​ You’ve been stuck at the same download count per episode for a while, and you’re wondering what more you could be doing to grow your audience.
  • You have an online business - like coaching, freelancing, digital storefront, or Etsy shop - and you want to expand your reach to create more revenue opportunities for your business.​
  • You want to learn more about podcast marketing so that you can become a podcasting service provider and start helping clients in a new way.​
This is not for you if...
  • You aren’t willing to invest a small amount of money and time into the platforms and tools you’ll need to grow your audience. (It’s not expensive, but you’ll likely need to spend $5-15/month, depending on your preferences and goals.)
  • You aren't excited about producing a regular show. No matter if you do a weekly or monthly format, podcast success depends on consistency. So if you aren't excited, it'll be hard to keep it up.​
  • You're more of a hobby podcaster, and you don't plan to earn money or really grow an audience for your show. You're just in this for fun!​ (Downloads don’t matter too much to you.)
