“... Podcast Editors, stop delivering the same message of ‘I can save you time’... everyone says that.” - Coach Chris Hines
If you’re not helping your clients increase their business, improve their downloads and solidify the loyalty of their customers, you’re leaving huge money on the table. Editors who want to make more money -- without working a crazy number of hours -- need to learn the art of podcast marketing. Just producing quality audio isn’t enough anymore. You need to make services indispensable to clients that’s visible in their bottom line. After all, when your clients make more money, so do you.
Coach Chris Hines has been hosting, producing and managing podcasts since 2015. He’s now the owner of Elite Podcast Marketing Agency, where he guides podcasters into how to grow their podcasts and generate profit from their efforts. He’s moved multiple podcasts into impressive download numbers over 50,000 with north of $20,000 in sponsorship revenue.
In addition to coaching podcasters and editors, Chris is a sought-after industry speaker, author, the host of his own podcast, Business Podcast Playbook, and creator of both the Podcast To Profit System and the Milestone System. Bottom line is, if you want to start making serious money with your editing business and take it to another level, Chris can guide you there. That wealth of knowledge and high-level coaching is precisely why we’ve been itching to have Chris as a guest on the show since we started our podcast.
