Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this course for?

This course is for entrepreneurs who are considering creating a podcast.

We focus on small businesses, startups, and solopreneurs in the first few years of business.

For this course, in particular, we assume you don’t have a big budget, aren’t a sound editor/engineer, and don’t already have a podcast.

Why should I listen to you?

Jen McFarland not only has the staying power of 25 years of marketing industry experience, she also delivers results.

She’s been a podcaster since 2018, and it’s yielded:

  • Over $10,000/year in passive income after select episodes were picked up by an audio course platform
  • 1-2 high-paying new clients each year, all by sharing largely educational marketing content for small businesses
  • New friendships and business connections which led to amazing new business growth opportunities

I am not a sound engineer. I don’t claim to be one. I do what it takes to create great content and find the easiest tools for non-technical entrepreneurs.

Are you trying to sell me a consulting package?

No.

All of our courses are stand-alone products.

We are not selling a consulting package.

We are not holding anything back so you’ll buy the next course.

These are short courses based on decisions we see business leaders facing all the time. We are giving you guidance so you can best answer the questions (and make decisions) for yourself.

What will I learn in this course?

  • What you offer your audience
  • Why you want to have a show
  • How to create a podcast budget you can afford
  • Best podcasting software (editing, hosting, music, social media, and more) for a variety of budgets
  • Hot tips for the best microphones to get you started
  • 27-key things you MUST DO before your podcast launch
  • How to find the BEST AppSumo deals to create and promote your new show
  • Our podcast setup (sneak peek behind the curtain)

Will you tell me which podcast microphone and software to buy?

We give you a range of podcast software options to choose from — including how to have a completely free show.

Most podcast courses are $799, or $40 for a planning journal! And... So. Much. Longer. What's the deal?

At Epiphany Courses, we don’t believe longer = better.

For our business leader courses, we create high-impact courses that are about an hour or less that guide you through making the best decisions you can.

As for the price… you DO NOT have a podcast yet.

This course will give you a chance to really consider what it’s going to take to do it (and whether it’s worth it). It’s CRAZY to spend $799 at this stage IMHO.
