An exciting announcement about my PodcastGuests.com service.
Over a year ago I created PodcastGuests.com, which is billed as “The HARO for podcasts”. This month I added new features to make it easier for podcasters to find new guests and for experts to get booked on podcasts.
PodcastGuests.com sends a weekly email to over 3,000 podcasters and experts to facilitate booking guests on podcasts. Each newsletter includes a list of podcasts that are seeking guests as well as their guest qualifications. Qualified experts click a button and fill out a pitch form that is sent directly to the podcaster.
The service has already facilitated thousands of guest booking introductions. It’s not uncommon for a featured podcast to receive over 30 guest inquiries when featured in the newsletter.
The rapid growth of the service led to a problem: podcasts had to wait a long time to be featured in the newsletter.
The new PodcastGuests.com expert directory solves this problem while also giving guest experts the ability to get booked on more shows. Now, podcasters can search the directory to find ideal guests for their shows. They can review the expert’s credentials and prior media appearances and then click a button to invite him or her on their podcast.
It’s also a way for experts to have podcasters come to them rather than waiting for the right opportunity to appear in the newsletter.
Guest experts can create a mobile-friendly “one sheet” in the directory. A one sheet is a short overview that experts use to pitch themselves to podcasts. Many experts have created one sheets in a cumbersome .pdf format. PodcastGuests.com offers a mobile-friendly online one sheet with links to prior guest appearances and social media.
While the core PodcastGuests.com service remains free, there’s a small fee for experts to create their one sheet in the directory. Fees start at $9 per month with an option for improved promotion for $29 per month.
