When you’re pitching yourself for podcast appearances, you might wonder just what the Podcast Producer is looking for. Well, if that’s you, listen up!

In this conversation with podcast strategist and producer Lauren Wrighton we show you the flip-side of the podcast pitching process and her inside perspective to help make your pitches more impactful.

Lauren helps business coaches launch and grow podcasts that make an impact on their audience and their business. She also uses her expertise in podcast production to teach freelancers how to become podcast managers and develop their own clientele.

Topics covered include:

  • Why, after co-hosting a podcast, Lauren felt that her talents were behind the scenes, rather than behind the microphone
  • The need for pitches to be focused on what the audience will gain from a guest appearance
  • Why hosts can and should use their discretion in a podcast interview to focus on what their audience is interested in and how pitching well can help guests prepare for this
  • Lauren’s tips for showing up as a great guest

Hi. I'm Angie.

I founded The Podwize Group to help you make the most of your time behind the mic.

Want to learn just how we do that?

We help business owners grow their authority, network, and bank account by pitching them to be guests on relevant podcasts.

We support business owners as they strategically use podcasts to grow their business inside of The Podwize Co-Op.

And, from time to time, we share the insight we’ve gained from sending over 2000+ podcast pitches. Insight like access to actual pitches we’ve sent that have been accepted (including a DM pitch to Pat Flynn).
