Pitching your podcast to guests today

There are a lot of podcasters that want to create the hype behind a show that far surpasses the actual show. And, instead of giving off a better impression, they end up putting up red flags as well as keeping the show in a low rating with low listenership. While it is not always as cool to state a true listening count, it comes off a great deal better than claiming to have a potential audience of millions.

Do not use the iHeartRadio vague numbers when pitching your podcast to guests

An example of the above is when people claim they have a listenership of the iHeartRadio reach. And a lot of podcasters do. They claim that since iHeart can reach millions, they have that in listenership. This is similar to the radio shows that claim the listenership during a nationally syndicated show is what they get in a local drive time or local and small market morning show.

Point being, when you pitch from numbers to the type of show it is, stop with the excess hype and start with the sense of the show, how you interview, where the show is shared and how the show works. Even if the show is not a major player and doesn’t have top-level listenership, it can serve as a great tool for others to want to promote because you bring something better to the table.

Promoting and pitching your podcast to guests should invite the right types to your show.

If you will have any and every guest with any and every topic on your show, then how is it special and how will it draw? Apply the authenticity to your interviews, your messaging and your pitch. Talk about how you run a show, what you like, what you don’t like and how you put your own creative spin on a medium that is losing some speed and interest.

Make shows that compound and grow your theme over trying to make every show some kind of viral sensation and lastly, have fun. Take it seriously but not too seriously. Let the show showcase you, your brand and your personality as it highlights and showcases the personalities and professions of others.
