Outsource podcast editing and focus on what you do best

The difference between a well edited podcast and a poorly edited one is huge.

It's not just about the length of your episodes — though that's important to consider. There’s a lot more to it than simply taking out the 'ums, 'ya knows, and awkward pauses. It's about delivering content to your listeners in the most engaging, entertaining, or informative way possible.

Editing an episode into a concise end product is both difficult and time consuming; time you don't have.

Your best solution? leave it to the pros. The team at Lower Street will save you time and give your podcast the competitive edge it needs to stand out from the crowd!

Pre-production

What's a great way to improve the quality of your podcast? Optimize everything that happens before you hit record. Research and planning has a massive impact on the end product. Did you know we can help here too?

Recording

Interview your guest, record your round-table, gather your narration audio, and share it with us.

Post-production

We edit all the material you provide us with into a well structured and polished episode complete with music, sound effects, whatever you need. You receive an mp3 file ready for Apple and Spotify.

Distribution

We deliver your podcast episode as a polished end product. You can distribute it yourself, or we can handle that for you. We’ll take care of everything from streamlining your show notes to uploading to your media host, website or social media.

What our clients have to say

Don't take our word for it

You’re going to want to put out good content from day one. I would describe Lower Street as the go-to place to get your podcast made and get out there

Rich Martell, Co-Founder, Secret Leaders (the U.K.’s #1 business podcast) Secret Leaders Podcast Cover Image

We had really been searching for that partner who could take us to the next level. We don't currently have that kind of expertise in house.

We hired Harry to be the expert in sound quality and engineering. He gave us a whole list of equipment to buy, helped us by giving instructions to guests, gave us scripts to string everything together, and even told us we needed a ‘sonic identity’. I said, ‘Whatever that is, I want one.’

Hannah Doksansky, Head of Marketing, Crisp Video

Life’s good. I upload the audio, somebody in my team fills in the bio section… and now the whole thing is like clockwork. I’ve had probably 5 of the guests I’ve interviewed say, ‘Man, that felt really easy… who does that for you and can they do that for me?’

Dominic Monkhouse, Founder, The Melting Pot Podcast The Melting Pot with Dominic Monkhouse Podcast Cover

I haven't launched a podcast before and needed a partner who could help us along every step of the journey. Lower Street have coached us through recording a great interview and produced a show that sounds professional right out of the gate. Maintaining the high standards we have for our brand in this new medium was very important to us, and we're super happy with what Lower Street has helped us to communicate through the podcast. I can't recommend Harry and his team enough!

Zach DeWitt, partner at Wing.vc and host of InnovAitors

it didn't sound like I was recording from my home office, and that it sounded like a Fortune 500 podcast. Lower Street made us sound very professional. They ended up being a great partner and guiding me from what equipment I needed, to answering my stupid questions, and helping me through the process.

Bridget Bell, Marketing at Leidos MindSET by Leidos Cover Image

The support that Lower Street have provided has been first rate. For me the real benefit has been what the team have been able to achieve on production - which far exceeds what we would have been able to achieve on our own. We're delighted with how the episodes have turned out so far and would recommend Lower Street without hesitation.

It doesn't stop at audio editing

Your podcast is more than just an mp3 file. In order to be discovered in podcatcher apps and Google searches you’ll need high-quality show notes.

There’s more; you’re going to require content for social media to share your podcast with the world. You'll also need a solid distribution and promotion strategy that’ll help you grow your audience.

Don’t worry though, our packages can be tailored to your specific needs.

Average cost for podcast editing services

The short answer is it depends. Editing rates can change depending on:

How much of the process do you want to manage yourself?

Are you willing to recruit and manage a freelance editor or would you rather let an agency handle that?

How detailed do you want the edit to be? How much involvement will you have in that process?

There are editors out there who can do a reasonable job on a simple clean up for under $50 per episode. But that means filtering through a lot of freelancer profiles on Upwork to find the right person (which inevitably requires a lot of trial and error), coordinating the edit with them each week, and a ton of back-and-forth.

And if you want anything any more advanced in terms of editing for content and narrative, the rate will increase dramatically and will need a lot more work from you to get the result you're looking for.

You can expect a professional editor with NPR, BBC, or equivalent experience to take a day to do a full edit of your podcast with day rates starting at $350+.

The general rule of thumb: you get what you pay for.
