Podcast Hosting 

email hosting

Legal Podcast protection

virtual podcast recording

First thing's first, your podcast needs a home. I host all my podcast on Buzzsprout.  Having a reliable podcast host is EVERYTHING.  Get a $20 Buzzsprout credit  when host with Buzzsprout.

Starting a dedicated email list for my podcast has been the best thing I've done to grow downloads and stay up-to-date with my podcast community. Try ConvertKit for your email list! 

If you want to actually be able to sleep at night without the fear a guest is going to call and say they want their podcast episode taken down, you need a Podcast Guest Agreement - and while you're at it go ahead and get the Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions for your website.  Use Code: MORGAN10 at checkout for 10% off. 

Do you love this website? Thanks I made it myself! Am I a website designer? LOL no. But I probably fooled you! If you want to have a stunning website that people won't believe you made yourself you need to ditch SquareSpace and come to Showit. Get a free month of Showit here! 

Embarrassing story - my first virtual podcast I had to re-record 3 TIMES because the virtual recording program I picked was total garbage. Don't make the same mistake as me, use Riverside from the beginning. Riverside is the top of the line when it comes to video podcast recording. Try Riverside, today!

"When I started working with Morgan I had no idea what a podcast could provide for my business, network or personal growth. Now, over 250 episodes and 2 podcasts later, I can confidently say creating my podcasts has been the most impactful marketing dollars I’ve ever spent and has helped me get in front of the industry leaders and investors that are taking my business to the next level. With Morgan’s help I’ve been able to build a platform and professional network where I’m a trusted voice in my industry and I have more options to expand than ever before."

"Before we started our podcast with Morgan we constantly struggled with trying to turn followers from social media into real life customers. It was an endless cycle of posting, waiting and getting no results. As an educator and mentor I needed a way to share my message on a larger scale and not depend on social media to do all the work, because it wasn’t working. Using our podcast as our primary marketing strategy for new students we’ve been able to double our team and have new students every enrollment period that are pursuing us instead of the other way around."
