New beginnings: What is Jet Streamer?

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

Welcome aboard!

Welcome to the brand new website, and the brand new brand- welcome to Jet Streamer!

Before we get too far into anything I thought I'd take a moment to run you through a few things about what's been going, on, catch you up if you're new to Jet Streamer, and answer a few questions about who we are and what we're doing here... and maybe because there's no blog posts on the website yet, and it's looking a little bare. The experts tell me this is bad for SEO. So I'd better get writing then, hadn't I?! Grab a cup of tea, and let's chat about what's coming up next.

What is Jet Streamer?

Excellent question. The long and the short of it is that Jet Streamer is a direct result of me sitting and watching while a number of really good entrepreneurs, business people and experts get more and more frustrated with all the effort they put into podcasting for no reward. Meanwhile, the big podcast houses park two standup comedians in front of the microphone and it gets hundreds of downloads. Doesn't seem fair, does it? You can read more about the story of Jet Streamer (and myself- I am qualified to do this, I promise!) here, but it all comes back to this philosophy: that professional people deserve professional podcasts.

Who's behind Jet Streamer?

Me! I'm Chris Plumridge, and in my career I've worked in radio, in PR, in audio... I guess you could say that my career in media has very much taken the "scenic route". Again, you can read more here about what led me to this point, but for even more about what I do, check out my website.

What does Jet Streamer do?

Well, keeping in line with the philosophy that professional people deserve professional podcasts, Jet Streamer is here to give podcasters the tools they need to create podcasts that fit their brand. After all, many entrepreneurs and business owners are exacting about their visual brand, but don't extend the same treatment to their audio. We're here to help them change that. After all, where else do you get the opportunity to hold your audience's attention on your brand for an hour (or more)? In a podcast, that's where! So it makes sense that your brand is represented in the best possible way.

To that end, we're currently offering packages to help improve the audio quality of your podcast. Of course, this is one of the easiest things you can do to make your podcast easier to listen to and sounding more professional. We've got month-by-month editing packages for regular podcasters, plus a podcast rescue package for those who've run into problems in recording. In future, we'll be expanding to offer even more services for podcasters. And of course, if you don't see anything that fits your needs, I'm happy to find a way to help.

I mean, you've got to have dreams, don't you?

What does the future look like for Jet Streamer?

I'm skiing, in Colorado... or on a beach in the Bahamas, or eating Gelato in Cinque Terre...

Whilst I'm only half kidding, what I would really like is to elevate the podcast industry past where it is now- it's such a powerful medium, but I truly believe that to do this we need more experts and interesting people doing more podcasts. I think Jet Streamer can help with that.

After talking to many current podcasters, future podcasters, and lapsed podcasters, I've found out that there's plenty Jet Streamer can offer to help. More training about presentation and interviewing. More help with equipment and location recording. More help with publishing and marketing. Plenty of those services will be added over the coming months until we're a complete solution to help podcasters shine.

What's next?

There will be plenty more tips and tricks coming up on the blog over the next little while, and of course to keep up to date you can follow us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Only one thing's left to do- it's time to go. Let's get started on our journey!
