///// THE PODCAST MARKET
Did you know that more than 10 million people in the UK listen to a podcast every week? That number has grown rapidly over the last few years and is set to continue doing so over the next decade. And because listeners actively choose to listen, coupled with the fact that they can do so while they work, travel, exercise or walk the dog, recent data shows they're much more engaged than they are with other media.
///// WHY START A PODCAST?
ENHANCE YOUR BRAND
A well-crafted, engaging podcast can greatly enhance your reputation within your area of expertise.
BUILD A COMMUNITY
Podcasting is a community-driven medium. The very best create a network of like-minded people who interact with each other and become more than listeners, they become fans.
Podcasts rank highly on Google so can significantly boost your appearance rate in customer searches.
REPURPOSE ACROSS MULTIPLE CHANNELS
Excerpts from each podcast episode can be sliced up into blog posts, videos and more for all of your social media channels.
///// HOW WE WORK
We'll spend time talking through your values, objectives and target audience. Once we understand all of those we'll work out the best podcast strategy for you.
Together we'll decide on the nuts and bolts of your podcast from the name, format and personnel, to the length of each episode, publication frequency and how and where you'll record.
Whether you're going to record remotely, in a studio or up a mountain, we can make sure you've got the right tools for the job and ensure every recording goes smoothly. We'll also handle mixing, editing and mastering each episode so your listeners get the highest quality audio experience on a consistent basis.
We can take care of hosting your podcast and distributing it to all the major platforms where it can reach millions of potential listeners, including Spotify, Apple and Amazon.
There are loads of specialised ways to effectively promote your podcast and we can guide you through them.
We can assess your current output, help you build your own in-house production set-up, or take on your whole project for you.
///// EXAMPLES OF OUR WORK
The ii Family Money Show, from the fund supermarket Interactive Investor, is hosted by Gabby Logan and features interviews with big-name guest like the screenwriter of films like Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, and founder of Comic Relief, Richard Curtis, about their relationship with money and how they've learned to save for their family's financial future. Dap Dip helped Interactive Investor develop the concept and show format, record high-quality audio and video for each of the episodes remotely and edit each interview into the finished product.
Dap Dip were instrumental in helping get The ii Family Money Show off the ground. Their knowledge, guidance, production wizardry and patience kept us on the right path from the concept development and script-writing stages, right through to the recording and editing. I wouldn’t hesitate in working with them again or recommending them to others.
