We didn’t intend to start a podcast service!
It started with our own podcast, “S’More By FIRESIDE”, where we interview small business owners about the experiences and share lessons for other business owners and entrepreneurs to learn from.
We tried to do all the editing, social media graphics, and strategy ourselves and realized that there is so much more to it than we ever thought! We then tried what you’re trying, to look for someone to do this for us. After having bad experiences with contractors and being over-charged by podcast companies and agencies, we decided to make it part of our mission to provide the highest quality, most affordable podcast production service!
Clients love that all they need to do is record their episode, and we do all the rest. Our team downloads the files and reviews them for edits, before our editing staff produce professional audio and video versions. Our content team then writes the best show notes you’ve ever read and we complete it all with promotional social media graphics!
All of this is packaged into a flat fee service of just $500 per month with NO setup fees and NO long term contracts.
Everything you need to be successful is included….
Audio, or Audio + Video
Choose from either 4 audio versions per month or 2 audio + video versions per month.
Detailed Show Notes
Engage your potential audience with exciting show notes and improve your SEO with a Google-friendly structure.
You can’t grow a podcast without great promo graphics. Every episode comes with promos and sound clips.
Need help deciding on your podcast strategy? Our team can you get you going with a custom strategy session.

An expert team makes getting started super smooth. Be guided through the entire process from end to end.

Stand out from the crowd in iTunes & Google Play, with eye-catching podcast art, professionally designed for you and your show.

There’s something else I want to share with you…
There are many services promising to make your podcast famous. They say they will make you the #1 podcast in your category and that you will have thousands of engaged subscribers. They say this because they think that’s what you want to hear to work with them.
I can tell you, having talked to many customers about such services, it can take a long time and a lot of hard work to get to that point, and many quit along the way because the wrong expectations have been set.
Our S’Mores podcast is not about how many people download and listen, it is about the impact it has on our business.
As a great example, one recent episode generated only 11 downloads in the first few days. If I was measuring based on pure statistics, I would have said that was a failure!
However, we chose that guest because of the influence and reach they had over an audience that we as FIRESIDE want as customers. We closed $4,000 worth of subscription revenue because of how easy our service made it for him to share our episode with his followers!!
I would love one day to have the #1 business podcast on iTunes, but if that never happens I will continue to be delighted by what my podcast is doing for us along the way.
To help you on your way, every new podcast Client gets a 1:1 with myself or a qualified team member to discuss your goals and work out the best possible way for you to exceed them. Doing a podcast is fun…. making it work for your business is even more fun :)

Why should I always use my own podcasting service account?
Whether you choose FIRESIDE or not, you should always use your own account for any podcasting service. If you allow a podcasting production company to use their own, you may find yourself stuck with them!
We like to use Podbean for podcast management, but can usually work with any platform you already have setup.
What if I already have a podcast, can you take it over?
Unfortunately, many people tell us horror stories from working with other production companies. Our team is experienced at migration and can help you get back on the right footing.
Why do business owners love working with FIRESIDE?
FIRESIDE is more than a podcast production company. We actually offer a full suite of marketing services for small and medium-sized businesses, each one only $500 per month.
- Paid social advertising
- Podcast production
- Content marketing
- Social media management
- All other services, visit our homepage
The FIRESIDE partners each have more than 20 years of experience managing over $2 Billion in marketing spend for many of the global mega-brands.
However, from building 7 successful companies they realized that smaller businesses often get over-charged by agencies or let down by freelancers.
FIRESIDE offers a very high quality of service for a fair, fixed price, with no long term contracts.
Marketing Services That Work, From Just $500 Per Month.
As a business owner, it can be hard to find a marketing agency that is reliable & affordable, or a contractor that isn’t going to let you down.
We passionately believe in small businesses, yet we saw many fail to thrive, not because the owner wasn’t prepared to work hard, but because they just couldn’t get their marketing to work.
FIRESIDE solves this problem by following three fundamental principles.
1. A low monthly, fixed price with no hidden fees.
2. No long term contracts, cancel any time without penalty.
3. You own your data, your campaigns, and your accounts.
