What is a micro podcast, you ask?

A micro podcast is a limited edition, 6-episode, promotional series pop-up podcast that is a great solution for authors looking to launch a podcast without the hassle, stress or time or financial commitment that comes with a long-term podcast. It can serve as an effective tool in many ways.

  • It can build a loyal following as it gives people a chance to hear you and learn more about you, the author behind the book and the business.
  • When utilized with an internal launch team, a capsule podcast can rallying your supporters together by sharing behind-the-scenes insights along your book writing, publishing and launching journey.
  • Integrate it into an external book launch and add a unique and creative tool to help you reach people who may just become your next super fans.
  • Include as a tool in your authorpreneur toolkit, giving you an innovate way to engage your readers as well as inspire potential organizations, media outlets and even podcasts to invite you to come speak to their audiences.
“I absolutely loved working with the emPower PR Group to create the first season of my podcast. What I appreciated the most was the encouragement I received from the team along the way. I has some reservations about doing it but because of their encouraging words, I finished Season 1! The best part was listening to the finished product. It’s so well done! I couldn’t have been more pleased with the final outcome!”

Frequently Asked Questions

The execution of a micro podcast requires a collaboration with the author and the production team. Our goal is to help you strategize, produce and package a meaningful capsule podcast in 3-4 weeks, however there are other deciding factors that could impact the timeline. Prior to moving forward with the development of a micro podcast, a strategy session is held to ensure everyone has clarity on expectations, timelines and requirements needed to make a beautiful end product.

We have found that 6 episodes gives authors and authorpreneurs enough bite-sized space for sharing meaningful content in a way that consumers want. It’s just enough—not too much, not too little!

What happens if you love the 6-episode podcast experience and want more! Great, we are happy and ready to help you. We record micro podcasts in 6-episode seasons, but should you find the experience one that would be great for an ongoing podcast or another tactic in your overarching marketing strategy, let us know! We love helping you meet and achieve your goals!

The development of a micro podcast is a collaboration between you—the author or authorpreneur—and our team. At the start of our collaboration, we begin with a strategy call which will help determine the format of the podcast to ensure it aligns with your needs. As the author, you will want to set aside time to craft your messages for each podcast, although you will be given some templated direction on how to do so. When you are ready to record your podcast, we suggest that you set aside a few hours to record all 6 episodes in one sitting if possible. You will also want to plan time for content creation for show notes as well. In all, plan for at least 8 hours of your time to strategize, outline, record, review and create associated content for your capsule podcast.

Yes! After the podcast layout and recordings are complete and agreed upon, one podcast episode will be formatted for you to review, make suggestions on, and approve. That podcast episode will be used as a template for the rest of the 6 episodes.

We love that micro podcasts help eliminate the need for most ongoing costs of creating a podcast, however, you will want to be prepared to pay a podcast hosting fee should you choose to put your podcast up on the typical podcast platforms. It’s a nominal fee, and we are happy to make some recommendations for podcast hosting that we love!

Phil is a musician by trade and leverages his skillset to create unique, custom music for authors’ micro podcasts. The package includes a round of music edits however since music choice is subjective, additional fees could incur if edit requests extend scope.
