Oh, yes, we do. So we have a free podcast course. So freepodcastcourse.com is a completely free eight-video series on how to create and launch a podcast. And then in addition to that, we have an online course and community called Podcaster’s Paradise, where we’ll help you create, grow and monetize your podcast. We have video tutorials, resources, templates, sample documents, like literally the whole thing that you need.
And we also have a Facebook group with an incredible community of other podcasters who are on the same journey as you. John and I are in the Facebook group every single day supporting people answering questions. We do live q&a once a month. So it’s really fun. We’ve been doing it since 2013, which like I realized the other day that that community is eight years old, and I’m like, wow, that feels really awesome to have been serving the podcasting community for that long and yeah, we just love the group so much.
That is pretty awesome. Yeah. I have your Podcast Journal and The Freedom Journal, and The Mastery Journal. And I love the Podcast Journal. Can you talk a little bit about that for a second?
Kate Erickson 20:08
Thank you so much. Yeah, the Podcast Journal was such a labor of love, like had such a fun time putting that together. So what it is, is a physical journal, they’re also digital copies if you don’t want a physical copy, and its idea to launch in 50 days. So the journal walks you through day one through day 50 of starting out with your idea all the way to launching your podcast. Each day, there’s a specific exercise. So you don’t have to think about like, “Okay, what’s my next step?” Or, “What am I missing?” Or, “Am I doing this out of order?” Like we created the entire roadmap for you to go from idea to launch in 50 days.
And what I think is so great about that journal is that it kind of also starts setting you up to think, “Okay, how can I systematize everything?” Because it really forces you to think of it not just from the perspective of a hobbyist, although podcasters that are hobbyist that’s great, I love it. But if you ever have a plan to possibly monetize it, the more you can learn and the more you can actually put the effort in put the work in. What is it? Didn’t John, call it putting in the reps?
Kate Erickson 21:11
Like the more you can put in the reps. Do it! Yeah, yeah. So I love it. I think everything that you’ve shared here is perfect. And I hope that people will just really take this and take it for what it is. That it’s just a really great idea of a way that you can make your life as a podcaster easier. Like you said, bring the fun back to it.
Kate Erickson 21:31
Yeah, absolutely. And I hope that for everyone because podcasting is so I mean, everyone who’s been in the podcasting space knows what, like high energy awesome people, like you just become addicted to podcasting. It’s like such an incredible medium to reach people to create, know, like and trust with your audience to provide value to create an impact. It’s an incredible ripple effect. Like, there are just endless benefits to it and the ease of access to it for pretty much anyone in the world is unlike anything else.
Yeah. Podcasters are the coolest people on the internet. Let’s just let’s call it like it is. Okay, thank you so much for being on this with me. I really appreciate your time.
