Today, I would love to share my observation of getting featured on Podcasts for the first time. Since it is my first podcast interview, I am a bit excited to share the learnings with you all.
Audio and video format of the content is doing well on the web. That is the reason many of these social media platforms have come up with going live and video options. Many Facebook and Instagram users have understood the importance of the video option (going live) available on these channels. Marketers are using them wisely for Q&A, training, talk about their product, etc. to increase their visibility and get some branding.
Recently, I joined an amazing Facebook group ‘influencer inc’ where we have some brilliant minds in the industry of journalism, social media, and writers from all over the world. In a discussion, someone had asked about what help you need and in return how will you help others in this (Influencer Inc) community, since I am a growth hacker, I replied saying I will help anybody with their marketing and promotional problems through my growth hacking tactics. Then, a guy by the name Keith noticed my response and immediately replied to my comment saying why not involve in a podcast and help the wold know who you are and what you do. I was thrilled and started talking to him over Facebook, and we soon became good buddies.
Keith runs a Radio podcast show ‘Pensacola Business Radio’ in Florida. He invited me to be a part of his show as a guest, and I accepted it.
On June 1st, we had a chat on growth hacking and here is the link to the audio: Pensacola Business Radio
I shared this on all my social channels, and the response I received was fantastic. Many of my buddies liked it.
My tips for getting noticed and a podcast deal,
- Talk more about your passion and spread out the word on social media
- Showcase who you are and the things you have achieved so far through your social media cover pages and bio section.
- Have your website and start writing about your passion
- Make a lot of connections with like-minded people
- Connect with podcast hosts on social media and get their attention
- Join different groups on Facebook and start sharing your expert opinion
Do all the things that help you get noticed on social media and one day you will be invited to podcasts and other shows as well.
