What Podcast Creation and the “À La Carte Menu” Have In Common

The importance of flexibility when choosing the right services to create and promote your podcast

When I’m at a cafe or restaurant for the first time, I like to order a lot of different things from the menu. Some restaurants call it “à la carte.” I call it the sides menu. Same. Same. This way of ordering is beneficial in a few ways for me;

  • It allows me to sample items on the menu to get a feel for the overall style of the restaurant.
  • I only pay for what I want to eat.
  • It’s usually the most cost and resource-effective.

À la carte means “referring to food that can be ordered as separate items, rather than part of a set meal.” This gives the foodie a choice and again, they only pay for what they want. If you’ve ever ordered a main course meal and didn’t want something in there like the veggies or the white rice you know what I’m talking about. The ability to assemble your meal is a great thing.

Similar to a restaurant, we feel with podcasting there should be a choice. The choice to make it as dynamic or as simple as you want. Podcasting is still new for most brands, and a lot of people are trying to figure out how to make it their own. Because of how unique it is, we think you should be able to do it how you want. That’s why we’ve created a very extensive services menu to hopefully give you the exact service you need to create the best podcast.

For example, if you don’t want to think about anything outside of sitting down and talking with your guests, you can choose the “Recording – Editing – Management Plan” aka “The Big Breakfast” of our service menu. Or, if you can start from a base podcast and add/subtract what you want to craft an original and unique sounding podcast, you can put together a “Chapters” style podcast. It’s a segmented, slick and highly polished sounding podcast format aka “A signature podcast sandwich” with specific ingredients from our Pod Paste kitchen.

Maybe you just want choice and would rather we help get you into the right package or plan to suit your business needs. Hit us up here we’ll assist you right away.

Three different ways to approach our “Service Menu”

  1. Subscription monthly option – Most significant savings but a small monthly commitment
  2. Standard podcast packages – A set number of episodes bundled together 
  3. A La Carte – Pick and choose whatever parts you want to make your podcast unique

Starting at $299 per episode (down from $499), we are sure we have something for everyone. Feel free to see our new services and rates here to find out what we can do to help grow, market, produce and make your podcast.

Speaking of make… I think I have a meal that I need to pick up from the cafe downstairs.
