There are some parts of the production process that we all wish we could skip. For some, it’s post-production and the long process of editing your episodes to perfection. For others, it might be transcripting or making show notes to publish up. Well, there are actually companies that you can pay to help you with getting all of this stuff done and much more, so that you can focus on recording and scripting your episodes.
Please Note: We won’t be publishing prices of these companies as for a lot of them it is based off of the individual client's needs.
Freedom Podcasting primarily offers editing and show note services. They mention that they can do transcription as well, but they cannot guarantee flawless transcriptions so they don’t actively offer them. They can also publish your episode for you with metadata to your chosen media host website. Their turnaround time is an impressive 2-3 days.
By giving consultations, ensuring that the way they handle your production is exactly the way that you want it to be.
