Podcast partnerships can start out easy-breezy when two like-minded creative types enter into a project together. After all, your on-air BFF-vibe is what keeps your audience coming back, right? But what happens to when your podcast becomes a real business? How do you know whether this has the makings of a formal partnership, or is better left as a friendship-with-podcasting-perks? And what are best practices for keeping lines of communication open, avoiding misunderstandings, optimizing each other’s strengths, and staying friends through it all?
This session will offer practical tips for making the most of a podcasting business partnership or creative collaboration, including discussions on the following:
- How to know whether a formal partnership is right for you and your podcasting BFF.
- Working remotely with a partner: finding the most efficient ways to divvy up responsibilities and stay in communication–even when you’re in different time zones.
- Avoiding misunderstandings by talking openly about money, goals, and potential exit strategies from the very beginning.
- Using each partner’s strengths to achieve your podcast business goals.
- The importance of retreats: making time for planning, brainstorming, and discovery.
- Keeping the love alive when things get stressful.
