Podcast editing is a growing industry that still has opportunities for a lot of people. But the question still remains: "How can I differentiate myself as an editor and be irreplaceable for my clients?"

Dava Visaya from joined us to talk about that question.

Dave is a podcast editor from the Philippines who has an interesting career trajectory. He owns a small podcast production agency with all in-house producers and editors (at least in-house when they're not under COVID-19 restrictions). 

He had the goal of building a large agency with a deep portfolio of clients but has recently decided to shift his business.

Listen to discover:

  • How many times the cats joined us :)
  • How Dave didn't think of himself as a professional early on, even though he was working on a very popular show
  • Challenges and strategies for pricing services, especially when working with international clients
  • What often stops editors from hiring people to help them
  • What you need to have in place before you start hiring
  • The benefits of having your team in-house, operating on a single platform and suite of software and plugins
  • Ideas for how you can differentiate yourself from your competitors to the point that you might be the only option your clients ever consider
  • Why many strategies to "add value" often fail (hint: consider who actually DEFINES what's valuable)
  • Working within boundaries - even across time zones
  • Ideas for what you can have in place before you ever talk to prospective clients so that you can get them what they want - right out of the gate.
  • And a LOT more.

This was an incredible conversation and you're going to LOVE it!
