PM14 – Promoting Your Podcast Panel

heather_bayer_podcastHeather Bayer – Post-Production Promotion Power Pack

How do you get your interviewees to market their episode for you?

They are busy people like we are so unless you have a power list and it really makes sense for them to promote their interview to their list, they just may not think it is worth the time.

Sorry, but even if you did the best job ever, their time is precious.

So, you need to make it easy for them to promote by creating a social media pack that includes links to every place you’ve posted the Show.

First of all you need to have presence on the main social media channels. I’ve included links to the best in the business at training each of these so if you are unsure, you can at least check out a tutorial.

As part of post production have a checklist that includes all social media channels and promote the episode on each.

  1. Create a great visual – not just a head shot. This has to be used on every channel so make sure it is sized well. Use Canva or Picmonkey to create superb visuals
