Harnessing the power of your podcast guests network

Do You Want to Build A Podcast?

Building a successful podcast requires a lot more work than just sitting down and pressing the record button. Kelsey gave a lot of great suggestions on how to build a successful following.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Make it easy for guests and audience to share your podcast by tagging them on social.
  • Link to resources and tools to create a truly useful piece of content.
  • Use a platform that makes it easy to share your podcast. (Don’t make them think!)

It Doesn’t Have to Be (Just) A Podcast

One of the most important pieces of advice Kelsey gave in the webinar was to repurpose your podcast content. This is true in every medium, but I think it gets overlooked in podcasting. Kelsey suggests transcribing part of your podcast, fleshing the topic out into a long form post, writing a recap post, and/or creating a webinar on the topic.

However you choose to repurpose your content, just remember it doesn’t have to be just a podcast. Different people consume content differently, so creating multiple formats makes it easier for your audience to choose the format they prefer.

Tools & Resources

Kelsey mentioned several great tools during the webinar. Here are links to those resources:

  • Click To Tweet – For easy sharing on Twitter
  • Rev.com – For transcribing your podcasts
  • Blubrry – WordPress plugin to host your podcast, share, and get stats (This is what SEJ uses)
  • libsyn – Website to host your podcast
  • Podbean – Podcast hosting
