It’s a different medium. The connection with the audience is different. The way people engage with the content is different. Even the way you promote a podcast is different. So, if you’re going to be investing time, money, energy and resources into producing a podcast, you want to make sure you have someone leading the way that knows this medium.
Karly is not someone who launched one show and now consults professionally. Karly has spent 20+ years working with audio. She cut her teeth in radio - learning all elements of broadcasting, including hosting the drive show, heading the creative department, writing and producing ads and audio branding, and even a stint in the newsroom. Then went on to run a successful voice over agency, specialising in voice overs for online learning, for over 15 years now and has worked with clients such as Coles, Lion Co, Telstra, ANZ, Uber, PWC and Ebay (amongst many others - name a big company, and it’s likely they’ve been a client).
In addition to her vast experience in audio and production, Karly has personally produced her own No.1 podcast for over 5 years and 300 episodes, and has launched 5 x top Apple iTunes shows herself.
Through Karly’s online podcasting school (Radcasters, est. 2015), she has had the pleasure of working with over 300 podcasters. Some have gone on to secure book deals, build successful businesses off the back of their show, hit major milestones: like 5 million downloads, and a few have loved podcasting so much they’ve forged their own successful careers as podcast producers. Karly has also produced and consulted on shows for major Australian brands and organisations, like Southern Cross University, Just Cuts, Rafiki Mwema and GP Training Queensland.
Karly’s available to bring all her knowledge to your next podcast in some of the following roles and capacities:
"Podcasting has truly opened amazing doors for me. I could not be happier that I decided to take this path! However, if it weren't for Radcasters, I'd still be listening to other people's podcasts, thinking 'I wish I could do that!'. "
"Karly is such a brilliant person to work with on your overall podcast strategy from top to tail. She helped me jam on - not just the tech side - but the creative ideas that really make an excellent podcast. Plus - she’s just a really cool chick. Sessions with her are fun, motivating and will make your head explode with ideas!"
"I could not have launched my podcast without Karly’s endless knowledge and tremendous patience. Karly’s a gem - whether you have a lot of technical background and experience or were a TOTAL novice like me. My fellow 'freqs' have been so generous sharing their expertise and always quick with an idea or suggestion. I can’t think of one question that was unanswered or one achievement that was not celebrated. I have been delighted and inspired by some of the achievements of the group that I’ve observed over the past 6 months. If you have a message you want to share, a desire to do something creative or simply to learn a great new skill, don’t hesitate. "
"The biggest thing I got from Frequency wasn't necessarily the fact that I went live after 5 years of thinking about podcasting, or that I feel like I've found my voice and a medium that feels so natural for me, it was the permission and support for it to be okay for me to be me. To show up and do podcasting in a way that worked for me. "
"Working with Karly was transformative to my preparation and confidence in creating our branding video! I had so much fear and self doubt before Karly’s one on one coaching session. Karly was so clear and knowledgeable with specific and actionable advice helping us with our message and the way this would translate on film. From Karly’s help with my self belief, content and our brand story I felt empowered and confident to do the video and was thrilled with the final result! I can’t thank you enough Karly, I would 100% recommend you to any business that are after direction, guidance as a bit of a kick in the butt to move forward in creating a video or a podcast with confidence and passion!"
I'm Karly Nimmo... host of 5 top of the charts iTunes podcasts: Karlosophies, Rock Your Mic Right, Keeping Good Company (retired), Make Some Noise (retired) and Humans Resourced.
I’ve been in business solely for myself for 15 years. In that time I’ve tried my hand at pretty much everything. But it all started with my voice over agency, Killer Kopy.
We work with most of Australia’s largest companies, recording voice overs for their online learning programs. This is a gig I started and have grown and systematised since 2005.
In the years that have followed I have tried my hand at many other things. With varying degrees of success and failure. I had an online magazine in 2010/11 called Think Beautiful. I’ve run personal development workshops across the country. I’ve hosted retreats and events and masterminds. In 2012 I started (and closed) a coworking space. I’ve spoken on stages across the country. I’ve worked as a coach and mentor and teacher.
Fair to say I’ve had my fair share of failure and success.
Before I entered the world of entrepreneurship at 27, I worked as a photographer, then in sales and marketing, plus did a stint in broadcasting (radio). And even through all of that there was always a side hustle going on.
But right now, my focus is podcasting. It’s one of my true loves. To be honest, using my voice is my first great love (whether on a podcast or on a stage) and my second great love is elevating others voices. Giving them the tools and the know how to produce exceptional content, while finding their voice.
In 2015, I created Radcasters: an online course to take you through step by step what it takes to create a show you, and your audience, will love.
And over the past year or two I’ve been working more and more in a podcast consultant and producer role. I’ve been working with some great corporate clients and since 2015 I’ve worked with over 250 Podcasters to help hone and craft their voice and show.
With all of this expertise, knowledge and wisdom, I have a lot to offer podcasters. I’m not only at the cutting edge of the industry, I also bring decades of experience in audio production, content creation, marketing, sales and business.
And, lucky you, I'm now available to get my eyes and ears all up in your podcast and your business.
