I am so thrilled to announce that in June I will be launching a brand new podcast, Hustle & Grace with Hilary Sutton. While I can't give eeeeverything away right now, I did want to give you a sneak peak at the artwork and give you a little behind the scenes look at how the podcast is shaping up and what it's about!
To settle on the design my team went through over 25 different mockup designs. We finally landed on this one because it both reflects my existing branding and is easy to read on a teeny tiny iPhone podcast app. :)
Next steps included finding music for the intro and outro, recording interviews, and getting the podcast episodes in the editing phase. I'll be launching three episodes right away when the podcast launches, because users can't subscribe to a podcast until there are at least three episodes already published. (Who knew?) Subscribing is critical because subscribers, reviews, and downloads are monitored. If a podcast gets good traction in the first eight weeks then it may get the coveted opportunity to be highlighted on the "New and Noteworthy" page. This can make a huge difference in terms of exposure and success for the podcast.
And that's why I'm putting together a launch team for Hustle & Grace! The launch team will be providing support to the podcast launch. They'll be among the first to listen, subscribe, rate and review, and share the podcast on social media. Without an intentional launch team, a podcast (or any other kind of big launch) can fall through the cracks. Are you willing to join the launch team? It's a low time commitment and would be a huge help to me! Just fill out this form here to get on board.
I'm so excited about this podcast and I can't wait to hear what you think about it. Stay tuned for the official launch in just a few weeks!
