Our Podcast Launch Accelerator Course is Now Live!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes on something extremely useful for podcasters yet again! Today, we’ve opened the doors on our brand new, free and totally badass podcast launch course, the Podcast Launch Accelerator!

If you’re a new podcaster hoping to finally launch that podcast this year, we’re really excited for you to start your podcast with free tools, tutorials, coaching and support from us. Heck, if you’re already a podcaster, there’ll be something for you to learn about podcast launch marketing strategy, audience growth and listener engagement from this course! 

What is the Podcast Launch Accelerator?

The Podcast Launch Accelerator is a free, 5-hour “how to start a podcast” course created and curated by me, Mark Asquith, and the team here at Rebel Base Media. It’s designed to help you start podcasting, keep podcasting and have fun doing it!

Those of you who’ve been around for a while will know that I retired our previous podcast launch course last year. It wasn’t serving new podcasters in the way I wanted it to, so I changed it up! 

The new course has been designed to tackle the four challenges that are shared with every new podcaster hoping to launch and grow an audience. We see these obstacles popping up every day, causing podcasters to stop before they’ve even started! So, throughout the course, you’ll find concrete, actionable ways to:

  • Overcome the overwhelm that comes with a new podcast
  • Decimate your feelings of imposter syndrome
  • Understand podcast technology and feel confident using it
  • Decide what to talk about and how to make quality content

The hours of content in this course all comes from my experience of 8 years in podcasting. It’s based on mistakes I’ve made (or seen other podcasters make), and the workflows, lessons and techniques I’ve learnt over the course of 1300+ podcast episodes and working with hundreds of podcasters.

It’s what I wish I’d had when I first started, and I hope you’ll find it motivating, useful and – most importantly – actionable. 

What can I expect from the Podcast Launch Accelerator?

The new Podcast Launch Accelerator course is made up of manageable, jargon-free and bite-sized video tutorials broken into four distinct podcast launch phases:

  1. Designing your podcast
  2. Understanding the tech
  3. Building your podcast
  4. Launching your podcast
  5. Plus a bonus “What to do after launching” mini-course

We’ve also put together the most comprehensive, 30-page podcast launch crib sheet to give you a way to follow along with the course and come out of it with a detailed, considered launch plan to put into practice. 

Every new member will also be able to join the Podcast Launch Accelerator Facebook group for weekly live ‘office hours’ style coaching, plus get unlimited access to our pre-built templates, recording checklists and dedicated launch processes. 

This course will take you from zero to full, oven-ready podcast launch in a clear, supportive and proven way. It’s easy to understand, accessible, simple to follow and includes concepts that you won’t find anywhere else! And it’s totally free!
