So take a read through and enjoy the journey of how Podcasters Platform came to be, and see the vision and mission behind all that our team has been working so hard to build.
Podcasters Platform – From Dream to Reality
Why have we created the Podcasters Platform? Over the past two years or so, we’ve identified a particular need in the podcasting space. The need for podcast hosts to connect with other podcasters in a thriving podcast community.
And so to tackle this need, we began dreaming. And we dreamed of creating a place that empowers the podcaster. A place where podcast creators can build a supportive community around their show and hone their craft with the help of their peers.
The dream morphed into a mission to create a space that lends itself to consistent conversations, contributions, and support between podcasters.
That dream has since become a reality in the shape of the Podcasters Platform. Through the Platform, our focus is on providing an expert-driven learning environment that allows podcasters to hone in on their skills, while bridging this together with community engagement of like-minded individuals.
It is our hope that through the Platform, podcasters will be able to engage with friends and peers who will spur them on and encourage them on your journey.
But how do we plan on fulfilling this mission? We start by focusing on the concept of community…
A Focus On Community
Community building is a pillar upon which the Platform was built. Because another common issue we saw podcasters facing was how incredibly hard it can be to build a community around a podcast.
And from our years in the industry, we know how important community is when it comes to the longevity of a podcast.
Which is why we’re so excited about the idea of fostering this amazing podcasting community on the Podcasters Platform. Because that’s really the heart behind the Platform. To create this great space where podcasters can learn and grow together, and get support and encouragement from others who really understand what you’re going through.
The Podcaster’s Platform has certainly been built around community.
But that’s definitely not all it is…
A Learning Platform
The Podcasters Platform is not just a place where you can interact with other podcasters! There’s a learning element and skill-empowerment factor to the Platform, too.
Our team is focused on providing an expert-driven learning environment that allows podcasters to learn and hone their skills. To accomplish this goal, we’ll be releasing a new course for you to work through every month.
These courses will cover everything from the podcast launch process to how to successfully monetize your podcast. And everything in between that you could encounter on your podcasting journey. So whether you’re looking to hack productivity, tighten up your podcasting process, or further develop your brand, our courses will have you covered.
Weekly Hangouts with the Community
Community is built on connections. And to foster these connections, we’ve set aside space within the Platform to meet-up on a weekly basis.
Every week we’ll hang out as a community for an hour or two to talk about podcasting, marketing, growth, and anything else that might show up in the process. We refer to our hangouts as, “Gaggles.” These are going to be a chance to meet fellow podcasters, ask questions, discuss course material, but most importantly, it’s the way to build a community around you and your show.
Podcasters Platform – The Podcaster2Podcaster Connection
At its core, we want Podcasters Platform to be a place where you not only learn the necessary skills to host a successful podcast, but it’s meant to be a place where you can ask questions, share insights, and lean on the wisdom of those on the same journey as you. That is the vision driving all we do behind the scenes at Podcasters Platform.
And to fully express that vision, we’ve coined the term P2P, meaning Podcaster to Podcaster. Because the lifeblood of this platform is the podcaster.
It’s all about supporting and equipping the podcaster on their podcasting journey, and providing the space to engage and interact with those who know exactly what you’re going through.
It is our mission to make Podcasters Platform a space that keeps you successfully moving forward on your podcasting journey.
And we’re so excited to be on this journey with you! So set those reminders and mark your calendars for February 1st! We don’t want you to miss out on all that the Podcasters Platform can offer you!
