Ep. 103 | Updated: How to Pitch a Podcast Quickly (Do it Messy!)

Jul 18, 2023 | 0 comments

If pitching yourself for podcast visibility opportunities makes you worry that you don’t have your opt-in / landing page / social profiles etc. finalized, then pitching a podcast quickly (aka messily!) might be just what you need.

Continuing our Summer Lovin’ series, where we’re re-sharing the content from five of our most downloaded episodes, today I lay out the minimum steps needed to get a targeted pitch out to your ideal podcast.

I think this one has been so popular because it shows that your pitch doesn’t need to be perfect to be successful, as well as containing actionable steps to take.

Don’t get me wrong, the parts of a ‘messy’ pitch are similar to those of a more finessed one. But trying to send out the perfect pitch can stop you from taking any action at all.

So if you’ve ever delayed sending a pitch because you think that you need to have everything all tied up in a bow, this episode will help you to feel more energized in your marketing.

How to Pitch a Podcast Quickly (Do it Messy!)

Topics covered include:

  • What are the minimum steps needed to send a targeted pitch?
  • The different parts that go into making a ‘messy’ pitch, including clarifying what you want to achieve, and how to craft a one-topic pitch template
  • How to identify your ideal listener and the shows they are listening to
  • How ‘Pitching Messy’ can help motivate you to keep going for the long haul

If you think that doing it messy could help you to get a pitch out of the door, connect with me on LinkedIn @angietrueblood. I’d love to hear from you, especially if this method helps you to bag a podcast guest spot!
