Becoming a VA sounded like a great work-from-home option, until you realized that finding clients isn't easy.
Do any of these sound familiar?
- You apply for dozens of jobs for every one you get hired for.
- You're feel like you're in a race to lower your prices just to get hired.
- You don't know how to stand out from the other VAs in the market.

Why Admin for Podcasts?
Podcasting is big business!
There are currently over 2 million podcasts in existence, with more being added every day (via @podcastinsights). That means over 2 million possible shows for you to get hired on, if you have the skills to get your foot in the door.
And that's where most VAs fall short. Podcasters value experience and excellence, and they don't want to hire a VA who can't hit the ground running. They are looking for team members who already have the skills needed to support them on their journey.
The Podcast VA Association offers the only podcaster-designed training virtual assistants. That means that we train our VAs in the exact skills we're looking to hire for ourselves.

What does a Podcast VA do?
You're not responsible for any of the fancy tech that a podcast requires. You don't need to know how to record, how to run a mixer board, or how to edit audio. Typically, those are the job of the podcast creator or editor.
As a podcast VA, you'll help with the behind-the-scenes tasks that keep the show running smoothly, from welcoming guests via email to making sure the episode gets uploaded & published on-time.
In the Podcast VA Certification program you'll learn everything you need to know to successfully manage a show.
Preparation: manage emails, walk guests through the interview process, organize files, create systems & workflows, and manage calendars
Publishing: upload & schedule episodes, write show notes, create transcripts, and upload episodes to the show's website
Publicity: create social media graphics & content, find collaboration opportunities, develop partnerships, and send emails
When you finish this program, you'll be confident that you know exactly what to do to get an episode out into the world, and you'll be ready to hit the ground running.

We're Jenn and Kelly, the founders of the Podcast VA Association.
We are podcasters.
Like so many other podcasters, we started our shows out of a passion for sharing our gift and message with the world.
Jenn (right) is a mompreneur with a passion for systems, workflows, and simplifying. She launched her podcast This Mom Knows in 2020 with a mission to help moms get more done in less time so they don't have to choose between their family or their business.
By the time Kelly (left) launched her podcast The Social-Savvy Introvert in 2021, Jenn was already feeling the pressure of juggling a growing business, a growing family, AND a growing podcast, and she knew she needed help. Here's the thing we love about Jenn - she knows the value in bringing in help as soon as you need it.
But, finding an experienced virtual assistant, one that she didn't have to train from the ground up, was an impossible task for Jenn. And she was finding out from others in her podcasting groups and forums that podcasters all over struggled to find qualified VAs. Here’s the other thing we love about Jenn - she’s an amazing networker, and she doesn’t hesitate to talk to her connections about the real-life struggles she’s facing.
In chatting with other podcasters, she realized that podcasters everywhere struggle to find qualified VAs. In fact, most podcasters she knew were desperate to hire help but couldn’t find someone qualified! Being the visionary that she is, Jenn saw a need in the market - a way to connect trained virtual assistants with the podcasters who need their help. At the end of 2021, she presented Kelly with the idea of creating a directory of virtual assistants whom we have trained in everything podcasting, and helping them get hired by the podcasters we know who need help.
Knowing firsthand how belonging to a directory changed the trajectory of her VA business, Kelly jumped at the opportunity to help other VAs experience the same amazing transformation. We know that having a directory podcasters could search to find their perfect VA would be an invaluable tool in helping our certified VAs get hired by their dream clients AND in helping podcasters find the perfect VA to help them with their needs.
The training course and the directory combine to make the Podcast VA Association the best certifying organization for virtual assistants looking to up-level their skills so they can get hired more quickly and increase their income.
We're so excited that you're considering becoming a podcast VA. If you have any questions about our training, the certifications process, or the directory, send us an email. We can't wait to see you inside the course.
