The Communicate Influence Podcast

Communicate Influence is a podcast and online magazine for people in communications, marketing, and writing. It features podcast and online in-depth interviews with thought leaders in PR, communications, marketing, leadership, and more. Thought leaders share their insights, best practices, ideas, and predictions on emerging trends.

I'm Sheelagh Caygill, founder of Communicate Influence, a side-project about which I'm passionate. I'm a writer, avid reader, poet, and journalist based in Toronto, Canada.

What is Patreon?

I'm really excited to be a creator on Patreon! And I'm honoured that you are reading my page and considering supporting my writing.

Patreon allows people to make monthly pledges through the tiers on the right-hand side. Please consider supporting me a dollar or more per month. I promise I will provide the best quality work always. If you do decide to support my work, know that you can cancel at any time.

It's a Win-Win - Invest In Yourself By Supporting Me!

Becoming my patron means you invest in yourself! By supporting me, you'll be gaining knowledge from experienced professionals in our fields. This will contribute to your professional growth. And you'll help me produce more quality content for readers of This includes podcasts, Q&A interviews, and articles.

You'll also be supporting me towards my longer-term goal of producing a non-fiction work for people in communications and marketing. I'll write more about this in coming months.

Introductory offer!

Signing up to support a Patreon creator may feel risky to some. Of course, you can cancel at any time. But I hope you won't. So I've implemented an introductory offer. There are 200 $1-a-month tier options available that give you access to all the locked content on Communicate Influence and here. Check out my tiers to read about the benefits you will receive as a thank you for your support. 

What Will I do With Your Support?

The biggest cost of Communicate Influence cannot be calculated in financial terms. It's generously donated in the form of knowledge and time by the people I interview.

For me, there is time spent researching topics, selecting interviewees, editing podcasts, paying for equipment and sometimes special editing, selecting interviewees, developing content, site maintenance, and social media sharing. I pay for a decent hosting package to ensure site speed. Occasionally a bit of coding and design skill is required, along with premium Wordpress plugins. I intend to cover most of these costs with donor support.

Thanks to my patrons to-date, who have helped me invest in a decent podcast set up, which includes two mics, a Zoom H4n pro recorder, SquadCast for remote interviews, and a soundshield.

In the longer term, I intend to write some non-fiction books. The first book is in the early research stages. It's for professionals working in PR/comms and marketing and I'll write more about this in coming months. 

Want to Make a One-Off Donation?

Please look at the tiers on the right side of this page. The different tiers of monthly support offer different benefits. Or, instead of selecting a tier, you might want to make a one-off donation with Paypal, and you don't need a Paypal account to do so! Simply go to my link.

Get in Touch!

If you have an idea for an interview or podcast episode, please send it. If you'd like to tell me more about you or know more about me, or just say "Hi", it'd be great to hear from you!

Reaching $500 a month will allow me to spend more time on the website, as well as investing in slick podcast editing software. I aim to reach this goal by spring, 2020.
