7 Key Tips for Successful Podcasts:

If you’ve always dreamt of hosting your own podcast, or you’re just looking to be featured, these tried and true tips could be the key to success that you’ve been searching for.

  1. STAND OUT – Sending emails to podcast producers or potential guests should be a customized experience.
  2. BE IMPRESSIVE – It’s all about how you position your achievements.
  3. BE PASSIONATE – Be persistent, but not annoying when it comes to reaching out to your dream guests or podcast producers.
  4. STUDY UP – Study famous reporters to learn how to initiate great interviews
  5. BE FLEXIBLE – Sometimes people are busy. For some guests it’s important to be flexible in order to land the interview.
  6. BE CREDIBLE – Find your small “ponds” that care about you and build a portfolio of press. Find out what’s newsworthy about what you’re doing and pitch it to these media outlets.
  7. BE INVESTED – Be invested in what you’re creating. Go above and beyond and put in the work! When you’re so invested and wanting to make it happen, you’ll find a way.

How to know what podcasts are right for you:

When it comes to sharing your message and seeking out podcasts to apply for or interviews to accept, it’s important to have clear boundaries of which ones will help you reach your audience. Here are three key indicators of a podcast that is a good fit for you and your business.

  1. Make sure it’s in your market – you can only make an impact when you’re speaking to the right people.
  2. Where are they ranked in their category on iTunes? Strive to be on podcasts that are in the top 200in their category.
  3. Look at their review numbers. Do they have 100 reviews or more? What is their rating?

Podcast Storytelling Outline:

The most important thing when interviewing or being interviewed is how you tell your story. Here is Jeremy’s proven storytelling outline that will satisfy listeners. Whether you’re guesting or interviewing, jot down this outline to prepare for an epic interview.

  • Tell a personal story – How did you get to where you are?
  • Share 3-5 key teachable points – What are you an expert on? It’s important to establish authority and trust.
  • Encourage the listeners to take action at the end – Give something away that relates to the topic you just taught about. Maybe it’s a discount code, a freebie, or something else that serves them in some way and also invites them to continue engaging with you.
