With more and more people staying at home and working from home the Podcast community has grown exponentially.
📈In 2017, 40% of Americans 12 or older had listened to a podcast, compared to 55% in 2020, and that number is expected to grow!
🎙So, how do you tap into that market? Start a Podcast of your own, or become a leader in your niche and secure guest speaker and interview spots on already established Podcasts?🎙
If you said 'be interviewed/guest speaker' then I have a treat for you! Here are 7 steps that will get you on air:
🔎Step 1: Find the right podcasts to pitch.
🕵️Step 2: Research the podcast before you contact the host.
📲Step 3: Contact the host to request an interview.
📆Step 4: Schedule the interview.
👩💼Step 5: Prepare for your interview.
🦸♀️Step 6: Give a great interview.
📣Step 7: End the interview with a specific call-to-action.
🔗Bonus Step: Make friends with the host!
After the interview, be sure to ask the host if there is anything you can do to support them, leave a rating and review for their podcast and share your interview with your audience!
