Sourcing Theme Music

Transparent Square Frame

Based on your requirements, we'll pull from our paid-for library to present you with options for music for your podcast's intros and outros.

Guest Scheduling System

Transparent Square Frame

You'll get a custom setup of the same guest booking system used by top-performing podcasters.

Discounts on Other Services

To ensure that your podcast starts with a bang, we'll give you discounts on access to our podcast recording studio, as well as on our audio  and video production services to ensure that your first episodes match in quality.

Intro & Outro Scripting

Transparent Square Frame

First impressions matter, and what you say at the beginning of an episode is no exception.


Similarly, the end of the episode is where you get to speak directly to your most die-hard listeners.


Based on your requirements and our experience with top-performing podcasters, we'll script the content for your show's episodes' two most critical points: their beginning and end.

Intro & Outro Voiceovers

Transparent Square Frame

For podcasts looking to stand-out from the moment listeners hit 'play', we'll arrange a professional voice-over artist to give your show that premium feel.

Knowing the language that your target audience is using can give you a competitive advantage over other podcasts.


We'll prepare a report that'll give you insight into opportunities for your podcast: both in its branding, and in the content that it covers.

Custom Music Composition

Transparent Square Frame

When library music just isn't enough, and you can't afford to pay for usage of that top-10 hit, there's no better option than getting custom music made.


Based on the style you're going for, we'll prepare boutique music for your podcast, to give it a unique identity.

A once-off fee covers exclusive use - it's all yours!

Our standard package suits most shows’ needs, but if you’re uncertain we’re happy to help you decide. Send us a message or schedule a discovery call.

The Initial Strategy Call is where we discuss your podcast’s direction, target audience, and goals, as well as how Zapods will help your podcast meet them.

It’s the first step in crafting your podcasting roadmap.

Yes! Our Standard Package includes sourcing theme music for your podcast. All the music we provide comes from our paid-for library, so you don’t have to worry about copyright claims, having the same royalty-free music as everyone else out there, or paying for your own music.

In the Custom Package you have the option of boutique music produced to your specifications.

Absolutely, you can upgrade your package at any time. We’re here to accommodate your podcast’s growth and your changing needs.

Theoretically, 72 hours. But each podcast platform has their own processing times, and it’s not unheard of for technical errors to come up.

Because of this, we prefer to work with a two-week window, so that we can handle any problems with different platforms (if they come up) without affecting launch dates.

We provide support via email, ensuring you have a direct line to our team for any questions or assistance you need through starting your podcasting journey.

For the Standard and Custom packages, you also get access to follow-up strategy calls, to deep-dive into those topics which need more attention.

Sure! We’re always happy to meet podcasters and talk through things to see how we can help. You can hop on a call with us, or just send us a message.
