In order to see results from your podcast, you need to have a clear goal and a reason that you are podcasting. If you don’t, you won’t know how to track and measure your results. On this episode of Rhodes to Success, I talk with real-life podcasters about their podcast goals as hosts and featured guests.
- There is a difference between having a ‘goal’ for your podcast and having a ‘reason’ you are podcasting.
- If you don’t have a clear goal, you can feel directionless.
- When you are podcasting for your business, it is important to have specific goals around getting your listeners, as well as the person you are interviewing.

Goals for Podcast Interviews for A Business Owner
- When you podcast for your business, it is important to have specific goals around getting new listeners, people on your list, and the relationship with the person you are interviewing.
- Contact host for a free session.
- Be informative, put the interviewee at ease, and ask questions.
- Bring value to the listener and enlighten them in some way.
- Promote the business and profession.
- I don’t have S.M.A.R.T. goals as mine aren’t time-bound.
Having a Podcast
- The reason is to provide answers to frequently asked questions from my clients.
- My target market is my clients, so I send specific episodes to individual clients when I think it will be of value to them.
- When clients see success with podcast interviews as a host or a guest, they stay as a client longer.
- I interview my clients instead of guests on the show.
- The stronger a relationship I have with my clients, the longer they will stay with the business.
Going on Shows as a Guest
- I go on other podcasts to build my network and have a low standard of entry.
