There are hundreds of little details to think about when pitching yourself as a podcast guest. But for now, focus on these basic elements:
- Listen to a few episodes of a podcast before pitching. If a podcast isn’t a good match for what you do, don’t pitch it. If a podcast doesn’t have guests, don’t pitch it.
- Check for a “guest submission” process before pitching. If there is one, follow it.
- Focus your podcast guest pitch on a specific solution for the audience. What can you do for this audience?
- Be detailed in your guest pitch. Mention specific episodes and elements of the podcast. Talk about what like about the podcast.
- Be patient. Give the host enough time to followup with you.
Podcasting is a MARATHON, not a sprint. Be patient, take action and apply yourself.
