Tips on securing a guest spot on a podcast
These podcast hosts and more are always on the lookout for guests who have inspiring stories, news to share, or business advice that can help others in the fitness community be successful. After participating as a guest in a number of podcasts here are a few tips that will help you land a guest spot on them too:
1. Find podcasts that resonate with you and your target clientele
Podcast charts on Spotify, Apple, and Google are good indicators of which podcasts are garnering a lot of attention, listeners and subscribers. But before reaching out to each one, dig deeper and find the podcasts that really resonate with you and who you are trying to reach.
Do some research on their audiences, past episodes, and their social media and understand the message they want to convey and if that aligns with yours. This is the best way to ensure the podcasts you reach out to will accept you as a guest and have you on their show.
2. Don't be afraid to pitch yourself
Most podcast hosts and their teams welcome guests, and with so many different businesses across the industry, it can be hard for them to spot which people to reach out to. Which is why it's up to you to pitch yourself and recommend yourself for one of their speaking spots.
Don't be afraid to share your story, what makes you and your business stand out, and help these hosts make a difference in their community. They are looking for people like you, you just have to let them know you're keen and why they should have you on.
3. Listen to previous episodes and come prepared
Typically podcasts have a theme or style they prefer to follow. For example, CrossFit podcasts will often welcome box owners or athletes and they'll often discuss the CrossFit Games, WODs, new trends in CrossFit, or tips to scale up and be a successful athlete. Many yogis will often speak about what they're seeing in the yoga industry, inspirational and motivational stories about how yoga has improved someone's life.
You never want to walk into a podcast as a guest not knowing about it first or you'll run into having an awkward conversation and it won't make for a good episode. The host and their team will be doing homework on you before having you on and you should do the same.
4. Remember that it's a conversation and engagement is key
The podcast format has garnered so much popularity for its short to long-form interview and conversational style. The best podcasts are ones where the guest and host have meaningful, entertaining, and engaging conversations. The worst podcasts are ones where the host asks the guest questions and the guest gives short, unengaging replies with little to no more collaboration.
Give your host something to work with and help them be prepared by sharing things you'd like to talk about that their audience and listeners will enjoy and respond well to.
5. After being a guest, market the episode
A podcast is only successful if people listen to it. Thank your host for having you on by spreading the love and sharing the episode with your community, on your social channels, on your website, and in your newsletter. Your community will want to hear from you and celebrate this incredible opportunity so don't be afraid of sharing your podcast episodes with them to listen.
