You aren't willing to put in the time and effort to make it work. Here are some red flags for things that might not make you a good fit:

- if you aren't willing to take the time or do the work to plan properly

- if you aren't willing to discuss, reflect, adapt, test, learn and fail
- if you are looking for the 'secret' to podcast growth
- if you are looking for a get-rich-quick scheme
- if you are looking for a guaranteed path to a download target  

I’ve made 100+ episodes already, is this course for me?

The bootcamp is aimed at all abilities. Having 100 episodes published provides you with a really solid foundation to grow, monetise and scale your published and we hope we can help you do that through the lessons on the bootcamp.

What sort of podcast is the course suitable for?

The bootcamp is not tailored to any specific genre/style of podcast.

That being said, 'interview' shows are particularly ideal for this course and make the basis for the material as this is where most people start.

The thinking in the bootcamp can be applied to any genre of show and we'll be on hand ensure you feel able to apply these methods to your podcast.

How long does the bootcamp last?

The bootcamp lasts 5 weeks.

Do I need to attend all the sessions?

Definitely not. This is a part-time course and therefore it's designed in a way that you can fit it in your already busy calendar.

We encourage you to pick the sessions that resonate with you and feel most relevant to your needs

You can always watch the rest using your lifetime access to session recordings.

How many downloads do I need to join?

This bootcamp helps everyone move their podcast forward regardless of what stage of the journey they're at.

Do I need to have a podcast to join the course?

No, it's not compulsory but the bootcamp does presume that you are already comfortable with the basics of the podcasting flywheel.

Do I need to know how to edit?

In short, no! The technicalities of editing is not covered in the bootcamp at all. We're aware that the majority of creators outsource this part of the process so we've built a curriculum in line with this.
