How to Promote your Podcast on Social Media

Social media is a really important piece of the puzzle when you are promoting your podcast and hands down, the best and most effective way to promote your podcast on social media is with graphics with text overlay; what my team at Interview Connections likes to call ‘promo graphics.’

Promo graphics are images that have your podcast logo or artwork, maybe your headshot as well, and your guest’s headshot. It’s also important to have the guest’s name, episode title or episode number and your website URL. […]

How to Get Celebrity Guest Interviews on Your Podcast

So, you started a podcast and now you want to interview the biggest names in business, right? Of course you do! Getting big celebrities on your podcast builds your credibility, increases downloads, gives you the opportunity to talk one on one with someone you wouldn’t otherwise have had the opportunity to connect with, and it positions you as a celebrity by association.

I book guest interviews on a lot of different podcasts and have had the pleasure of connecting my clients with celebrity guest expert interviews like Jon Taffer, host of Bar Rescue, Stacey Poon-Kinney, who was a finalist on Food Network Star and starred in an episode of Restaurant Impossible, Jeff Olson, author of The Slight Edge, and Amy Porterfield, Facebook marketing expert.

Interview Connections Highlights

Melanie Benson Strick was a guest on Jim Palmer’s Stick Like Glue Radio and they talked about how to get out of overwhelm, which is often a huge problem for entrepreneurs. I learned a ton of great tips from this interview. The one nugget that has stuck with me is: Your work will expand to the hours you’re willing to work. If you find yourself working 12 hour days, then you will create enough work for yourself to take up 12 hour days! But if you commit to an 8 hour day, or less, you will force yourself to be productive enough in those 8 hours so that you can enjoy your life outside of work after 5pm!

Are your [podcast] show notes boring?

Show notes are a great way to capture the valuable information that was mentioned in your podcast. It’s a way to give your audience the ways they can connect with your guests as well.

Simply writing up a blog post with your show notes and links is great and you should do that! But I have found a way to make show notes way more exciting! By putting show notes in to an infographic, you are going to WOW your audience; you’re going to increase the number of people you can reach because it’s literally repurposing the info from your podcast into a visual graphic (not just text) that can be shared on Pinterest, and gain way more attention on Facebook.
