3 Things We Learned From This Episode
- Being invited as a guest on a big podcast isn’t always as beneficial to our business as we would like. Because the audience is so wide, they all have different problems to solve.
- When we focus on podcasts that are very niche, everyone in the audience has a problem that we can solve. That’s where we get the traction we need.
- The best way make sure we actually get featured on a podcast is to find the right show. Finding the right niche makes it easier for us to come up with a story and have useful experiences to share on the podcast.
The process of discovering new podcasts and pitching takes time. This is why it’s so important for us to have someone do the pitching for us so we can spend our time on higher value activities. Another shortcut to successful pitching is using pitching templates that are proven to work.
