In this episode, I’m excited to introduce Kim Stewart to you all – another Podwize team member. We dive into the podcast pitching strategies we’ve been implementing behind the scenes to help increase pitch conversions.
As well as being a part of our team, Kim is a book marketing strategist who helps nonfiction authors reach new readers by guesting on podcasts. Since 2014, Kim has helped authors build their platforms and launch and market their books long before and long after their release date.
Although Kim approaches pitching in a way that supports authors, there are a lot of parallels in the work we both do, particularly in the way that she encourages her clients to build their visibility in general, not just during launches.
This is directly relevant to anyone in the online business world looking to use podcast guesting to promote a specific offer. No matter what podcast pitching strategies you choose to implement, remember: always lead with the value you’re bringing to the audience!
