    Unmissable Events

    Every quarter, Sounds Profitable holds the Podcast Business Leaders Summit for all partners, in conjunction with major events such as SXSW, Advertising Week NYC, Podcast Show London, and more.

    These events are included as a thank you for our partners, and offer a live premiere of our latest research, small panel discussions on critical topics, and ample networking opportunities over food and drink.

    In addition, we hold monthly webinars for all of our partners’ employees called Unplugged, that delve into the most pressing topics at hand.

    Peerless Advisory Services

    Each partner receives 30 minutes of consulting time with Bryan Barletta every month. Speaking to over 150 companies per month, and actively being a user of most products in podcasting, Bryan focuses on sharing all public insight available, providing advertising, technical, and product insight, and making key introductions to help partners solve their problems or win new business.

    Within reason, partners can use this time however they like.
