I want to be a good fit for you. You may not be sure how much this will cost. Let me do your first episode for free, and I’ll let you know what it would’ve cost you. This way you can make an informed decision.
Why Should A Short Show Cost the Same as the Long Show?
While other charge you a monthly fee for a certain amount of episodes, what if you skip an episode?
I prefer to use the pay for what you need format.
Below is a list of editing process that are available both to the audio and your website.
Audio Clean Up
This is the removal of “ums,” “ya knows” and other stammers. These will be the “low hanging fruit.” For example an “um” that has space on each side. An um that leads into a word is harder to cut out. We can do this if you’d like, but realize with precision comes an increase in time.
For an hour long episode, plan on audio clean up to take 90 minutes.
Sound leveling is ensuring the volume level does not require the listener to turn up or down the episode. It also includes the removal of hiss.
For an hour long episode, it takes around 20 minutes.
“Show notes” is the term used to describe the post about the episode. This includes a synopsis of the episode with links to any resources.
For an hour long episode, it takes approximately 90 minutes
This is where we take your intro and outro files and stitch them together with your content, add meta (ID3) tags and upload the file to your host. This takes around 10 minutes for an hour long episode.
You record the content (we can help you get setup with the proper equipment, plugging it in, etc). Then you upload the wav file into a shared folder on Dropbox.com (tutorials are available if you’ve never used dropbox.com). It’s much like attaching a file in e-mail or upload a photo to facebook). From there we take the file and do the following scenarios:
Audio Editing $60/hr
Scenario 1: “Assemble and Levalate”
If you just want us to stitch everything together and make it sound great (and you write a quick post) the following prices would apply
10 Minutes: $5
30 Minutes: $15
60 Minutes: $30
Scenario 2: “Clean Up, Levelate, Assemble:”
Everything in Scenario 1, with edition of editing out “ums.”
10 Minutes: $20
30 Minutes: $60
60 Minutes: $120
Scenarios 3: “The Works”:
All of the above. You record it, and we do everything else.
10 Minute Show $44
30 Minute Weekly Show $105/ episode
60 Minute Episode $205
The prices here show per episode pricing. In some cases it may be less (less “ums” = less time editing). We do not bill monthly. We only bill for work we perform. We can bill you per episode, or if you’d like to set up a retainer that is possible as well.
