How to Pitch Yourself for a Podcast


Hi I’m Lucy Griffiths and I’m going to
share a few ways to pitch yourself like a pro for a podcast. Hi, I’m Lucy Griffiths and I’m going to share how to pitch yourself as a podcast guest and be
seen as an expert. If you like this video, I would love you to subscribe. I share
lots of tricks and tips about mindset, about marketing and really standing out,
so that your voice is seen and heard. Being on a podcast is really about
setting yourself up as an expert and being a figure of authority and if you
want to know more about being a figure of authority, being an expert I have a
video just on that just here. But for now, let’s talk podcasting. So, when you are on
a podcast you want to really be seen with credibility, so make sure that or
your facebook posts or your social media posts are seen as an authority figure,
someone who has credibility and wants to be seen. So, that’s number one, be really
key about that. Number two, to set yourself up for success make sure that
you are establishing relationships with the people who run podcast, so you know
like their post, like their social media, so they remember you, so you stand out.
Then, when you pitch yourself as a guest, it’s exactly the same way as you would
be for a professional magazine or newspaper. You want to share an idea that
is in line with their audience. So, you want to really focus in on who their
podcast audience is, who are their listeners and what do they need to hear
and then make sure that your message and what you say is in line with what they
need to hear. So, if you are a marketing expert and it’s a marketing podcast make
sure that you are sharing something that is
unique and different. So, it’s really about the synergy between you and what
you talk about and once you’re able to do that, Then, it is so much better
because you’re much more effective because you’re in line with what the
podcaster needs to hear. So, think about the podcaster, what do they need to hear
from you, what experiences, what lessons, what learnings can you share and when
you’re able to express that in an email but without going on and on, keep it
short, keep it tight, that will really help. When you send your email
keep it short because people are busy they don’t have time to read masses. Also,
one sentence or two about you. Don’t talk about yourself too much because actually
they’ll go and do some research on you and so keep it tight because people
are busy. And also make sure you say that you’ve got some experience on
podcasts, that you’ve got a microphone, you’ve got the right kit. So, you will
actually make their podcast sound good because there’s nothing worse than a
podcast where the audio quality isn’t good. So really think about that and say
I’ve bought this microphone, I hope that’s compatible with your system and
be open to their tips and suggestions so if they say oh that was no great
microphone, be open to that and say oh, I’m so sorry, I’ll look at something
different. So, think about that in the way that you can really improve your audio
quality and make sure it stands out. I hope you found this video useful. If you

    Who are they talking to? You need to think who you’re pitching to, and what their audience and motivation are. Who's the podcast you want to be a guest podcaster? Let me know in the comments.
