This week on #GoalChatLive I spoke with author and podcaster Laura Michelle Powers about Pitching to Podcasts. Laura talked about what it takes to pitch a podcast, as well as offered tips for starting a podcast of your own.More than any other medium, podcasts connect you – whether you are an expert, entrepreneur, author, or all of the above – with others. And by being on podcasts, you get introduced to another’s audience and vice versa. It’s the ultimate win win.
On Sunday night’s #GoalChat and Monday’s #GoalChatLive we talked about why you should be pitching podcasts, where to find podcasts to pitch, what elements go into a pitch, and so much more. Among her other advice, Laura shared what goes into a media kit (photo, bio, contact information, social media links, and where you’ve been featured before), as well as how most important part of a pitch is your unique hook. Compose creative, relevant subject lines. You need to give the podcaster a reason to keep reading your pitch
Laura even dove into the basics of what you need to create a podcast (Zoom, headphones and mic, content host), since podcast swaps are another way to get airtime and find new audiences.

Bonus Goal: Pitching to Podcasts
Make a list of 20 ideas for pitching. This can be podcasts, pitches, or a combination of both. The idea is to think outside your comfort zone, and generate some fun and unique ideas to pitch.
The key to good collaboration is communication. Make a plan, divide the responsibilities, and have everything in writing. If there’s an issue, reach out with the best intentions and go from there.
