Tips for Pitching Yourself On A Podcast with My Producer, Kristi Smith

If you’re listening to this episode, there’s a good chance you love listening to podcasts as much as I do.

Podcasts have been the best thing to bless my ears since Rhianna and Beyonce’s fierce music. *And both of them are Irreplaceable…get it?!*

I listen to podcasts in the car, while I work out, while I get ready for the day… sometimes I even listen to them while I’m just chilling out at home.

If you love listening to podcasts, chances are you’ve heard an episode or two with a guest contributor. It’s a very popular format for podcasts nowadays!

This is because podcast guests provide value not only for the podcast host by sharing their unique insights, but also for themselves as free advertising.

>>Podcasts are a great way to get your name out into the world, even if it’s only through a listener’s headphones.<<

So if you’re a lover of podcasts and have the desire to pitch yourself to be a guest on a podcast, listen up!

This episode is broken up into two parts:

  • First, I’m going to give you the Top 5 Things you should do that will help you nail down your spot as a podcast guest.
  • Then, I’m going to be bringing on my podcast producer for the Jasmine Star Show, Kristi, for her to share some of her insights with you too!
