The Podcast Host

About The Company

“We’re podcast geeks, and if you’re not already, then we’ll turn you into one! We speak, we teach and we build, all to help you create an amazing show, and get your voice out in the world.
Our core area of work is in helping anyone to launch, grow and monetise their own successful podcast.

We earn our living in three main ways:

1. Running a Software as a Service (SAAS) web application, Alitu, which is a tool to help people create a podcast. The user can upload an audio file, and our system can clean it up, add their branding and publish it, all automatically. SAAS growth & marketing is a really interesting and growing area, and you’ll help us create our strategy around that.

2. Supporting a close community of all-in media creators within our paid course library: The Podcast Host Academy. The community contains courses, resources and live-taught events to help anyone learn how to run a better show.

3. Affiliate and Sponsorship related to our free content. This means researching customer problems and needs, and creating content that really helps them. This is then monetised through product recommendations, sponsorship and other methods.”
