Ep. 61 | Actionable Tips to Improve Your Pitch

Dec 7, 2021 | 0 comments

As we barrel headlong towards the holidays, it’s time for us to reflect on how the pitches we send have changed in 2021. These changes are a strategic shift, brought about by two key things we’ve noticed:

  1. There are more people out there who are pitching themselves for podcast guesting opportunities
  2. There are more people out there sending BAD pitches to podcast hosts

So what I try to do, both on this episode and in the podwize co-op, is to provide you with actionable, strategic advice to improve your pitch in the best way possible. And by the same token, make it easier for podcast hosts to see that you’re going to bring value to their audience.

In this episode, I share with you the ways in which the pitches we send have changed, the rationale behind these changes, and point you towards a valuable free resource that will immediately improve your pitch and sharpen up your pitching game!

Actionable Tips to Improve Your Pitch

Topics covered include:

  • If you’re getting value from the podcast, leaving a rating and review is so helpful to us. Visit the show’s profile on Apple Podcasts, Podchaser, Castbox, or Podcast Addict
  • How the way we pitch our clients has changed in 2021
  • Why you’re unlikely to get an email from a host to clarify why you are the ideal guest for their show – so do your homework, be personal, and relevant!
  • Lead with value and place the listener first – what can they expect to take away from your guest spot?
  • How to show your commitment to sharing the appearance with your audience, and why that matters
  • Why you should grab a copy of my free download, Podcast Pitches That Convert

I hope that there are some actionable takeaways that you can apply to improve your own pitch – in all of this, we’re trying to make it as easy as possible for the host to understand what you’re about and why you will bring value to their audience.
