What Top Podcasters Are Looking For From a Guest
As an expert-based business owner, getting more eyes on your offers and ears to your message is a big part of client attraction. So of course, podcasts are a valuable strategy to grow your reach. But the trick is, how do you get a podcast host to book you on their show from your podcast pitch?
You might turn to a podcast booking service, which will help you free up time. But, these services aren’t always effective (and I really want you to be successful) so I turned to one of my favorite podcast booking services to find out what’s working right now.
On Amplify Your Success Podcast episode 279, Julie Fry of Your Expert Guest, joins and we take you behind the scenes to share how to get more bookings on top podcasts.
