Most of the time when we start our podcast for the first time, there can be a lot of self-doubt. A lot of “Am I really qualified to talk about this?” and some perfectionism. The same thing happens when we start a business. These mindset barriers can hold us back from enjoying the process or even stop us from actually bringing our dreams to fruition. This week, episode 16 of Listeners to Leads is about landing coaching clients, with Valerie Friedlander! 

In this episode of Listeners to Leads, Valerie is sharing the importance of mindset and actionable steps you can take right now to get over your self-doubt to show up confidently with your podcast. 

Valerie and I also chat about the following: 

  • How Valerie decided to start coaching live on her podcast, and how that’s gotten her clients
  • Her process through self doubt, and how you can turn around your own self doubt into improvement
  • Setting your own rules when it comes to your podcast and your business
  • Mindset issues many face, including “enoughness” and pushing yourself outside of “easy”, and how that can help you achieve greatness in your podcast and business

You are the expert of you – only you will know what is best for your podcast, and what is enough. This episode will encourage you to seek beyond the societal “rules” that you’ve been following and set out your own boundaries and enoughness.

Did you know that I have a degree in marketing? While a lot of the principles of basic marketing are great for bigger companies with marketing budgets and lots of team members, it can be difficult to complete all these ads and other strategies as a solopreneur or a smaller business.

  • Social Media Audiograms
  • Social Media Videograms
  • Transcript
  • Content Upgrades/Freebies
  • Discussion Questions
  • Shoutout to a guest doing something amazing

A lot of times as podcasters we talk about “growing the podcast” but I want to flip it around and instead encourage you to focus on finding high-quality value you can add to the show. By adding high value you’ll grow the show authentically while showing up for your audience and what they need from you, which will, in turn, grow your show. This week, episode 13 of Listeners to Leads is about finding quality guests for your podcast! 

In this episode of Listeners to Leads, I’m sharing the importance of high-quality guests and why you may not want to find guests based on their follower count. 

I chat about the following: 

  • Getting clear on the goals of your podcast, and why this needs to be done before finding guests
  • Where to find guests that fit your podcast goals; some of which are right under your nose!
  • Why you should keep in contact with past guests, and how they can help you long after their episode airs
  • How to utilize your communities and places you are already hanging out to find and connect with high quality podcast guests.

If you are only selecting guests based on social status or followers on Instagram, and not because of what they can offer your audience, then you’re wasting your time and their time. Picking high-quality guests is going to amplify your message, your show, and your audience authentically. 

Places to find podcast guests:

  1. Friends
  2. Authors on Amazon
  3. Search your Podcast App for similar podcasts
  4. Search blog posts, pinterest, and YouTube
  5. Check Podcast Facebook groups
  6. Search social media profiles
    • Comment on their stories
    • Check out their website
  7. Ask other Podcast Guests
  8. Some websites to check out that cost money
  9. Be a guest on other podcasts
  10. Mastermind communities
  11. Virtual Conferences / In-person Conferences

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on turning your podcast listeners into leads and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

The time and effort that you put into social media are ultimately what you’re going to get back from it, so giving a majority of your time to one social media will yield better results than giving small bits of your time to several platforms. This week, episode 8 of Listeners to Leads is about ditching the social media overwhelm! 

In this episode of Listeners to Leads, my guest Andréa Jones shares the importance of leveraging social media for your podcast and business in a way that works for you and actionable steps you can take right now to make an impact and grow your business using social media marketing. 

Andréa Jones is fiercely committed to helping businesses and podcasters build profitable online communities through simple social media solutions. She’s the host of the Savvy Social Podcast, creator of the Savvy Social School, a digital platform designed to teach its 100+ members (predominantly small business owners) how to implement organic social media strategies, and named one of Social Report’s top marketers to follow.

Andréa and I also chat about the following: 

  • Tips to get through the brutal first 20 episodes of your podcast to keep going. 
  • Deciding which posting cadence works best for you and sticking to it.  
  • Approaching social media as a podcaster and business owner without getting overwhelmed. 
  • Leveraging episode content into social media posts and repurposing content to cut your social media workload in half. 
  • Using clubhouse and other trendy social media platforms to gain exposure with other audiences and spark interest to drive potential listeners to your show. 
  • Pitching to be on other’s podcasts as well as tips to get those people you genuinely want to hear from onto your own show. 

At the end of the day, your audience should always come first to mind when it comes to every decision you make for your podcast.

The only thing I do recommend understanding first before jumping into paid advertising which is part of that impact phase. You have to understand how social media helps your business or else you’re just going to be giving Facebook your money, and they will gladly take it.
