About Us

Our mission

Too many businesses are still stuck in the Dark Ages, trying unsuccessfully to close leads who don’t trust them and wondering why their conversion rates are so low.

We believe there’s a more effective way to grow your business. One where you can create thought leadership, grow reach and influence, and nurture credible client relationships before and after the sale.

That’s why we’ve created PodUp, an ecosystem of software, services and education that help entrepreneurs and podcasters create, grow and monetize their businesses with next-level podcasts.

Brands our team has worked with:

Our story

In January 2021, Nathan Gwilliam had just sold Adoption.com and was looking for his next venture. He saw podcasts as the next tectonic shift that would transform the business landscape, so he created a podcast with a blog, YouTube channel and social channels and published every day for a year. 

After a few months, Nathan realized he needed 30+ technologies that cost almost $2,000 per month. Most of these technologies didn't integrate well and were missing key functionalities he needed to run his show.

Although the show amassed more than 300,000 combined podcast downloads and video views in the first year, it kicked his butt.

There are millions of podcasters and other aspiring show hosts facing the same challenges. Nathan realized the opportunity to develop an all-in-one platform that would help entrepreneurs and podcasters create, grow and monetize next-level podcasts. He envisioned a cost-efficient, full-feature platform with dozens of integrated technologies.

PodUp's international team has invested years and millions of dollars to develop the ultimate podcasting platform to help grow your business.
