Not sure who should be the “voice” of your company?
Here are 5 tips that might help:
✅ Social media presence
After receiving a guest pitch, the hosts will always search the guest on social media.
Having a solid social media presence helps the speaker get picked.
✅ Time capacity
Although speaking on podcasts doesn’t take so much time, it’s still a commitment.
Make sure the speaker has enough capacity to prepare and show up on time.
✅ Unique point of view
Hosts don’t want guests that are speaking about the same things as everyone else.
They want to talk to people with original thoughts and ideas.
✅ Content experience
If the speaker has experience creating some type content, it’s a huge advantage.
Publishing content requires you to sharpen your message and keep it engaging.
✅ They stay with you
Podcast episodes are evergreen. Once they’re published, they stay online.
For that reason, prioritize a speaker who’s most likely to stay at your company for a while.
In a nutshell:
Choosing the wrong speaker might make your podcast guesting efforts unnecessarily more difficult.
Save this post to make the right decision once you decide to start appearing on podcasts.
