Timestamped summary of this episode:


[00:00:02] – Should I Host or Guest a Podcast?
The answer is both. Hosting and guesting on podcasts can create opportunities for guests to expand their audience and make connections with other professionals.

[00:02:16] – The Challenges of Social Media Connections
Sending copy-paste messages and using the free strategy session model can create uncomfortable conversations and make people feel like they are being sold to. Using personal connections to invite people onto a podcast can be a better way to build relationships and create opportunities.

[00:05:16] – Creating Opportunities with the Reach System
The Reach system stands for represent, reinvent, and reverberate, engage, achieve greater presence, close more deals, and harmonize. Launching a podcast creates a platform and opportunities to be a featured guest on virtual summits and traditional media.

[00:08:34] – Mistakes to Avoid in Podcast Launches
Obsessing over technology and taking extreme shortcuts are common mistakes people make. It’s important to have a clear idea of what the podcast is about and to focus on creating personal connections to invite guests onto the show.

[00:14:29] – Common Mistakes When Launching a Podcast
Many people make mistakes when launching their podcasts, such as using it as a box to check off or getting obsessed with perfection and post-production. These unrealistic expectations can lead to a loss of steam, but podcast monetization can help fund the cost of podcasting.

[00:18:48] – Podcast Monetization Strategies
Podcasters can offer an Elite promotion package to monetize their podcast. This can include featuring episodes as a Great-Assist episode, getting longer conversations, and being promoted across social media and email. Sponsorship is also a viable option, as seen with Tracy Hazard’s 3D printing podcast sponsored by 3M.

[00:22:49] – Separating Your Podcast from Your Business
Separating your podcast from your business can actually help your podcast reach a wider audience. You can add banners or links to your business on your podcast website or use WordPress to customize your title and description to increase search engine optimization.

[00:26:37] – Overcoming Procrastination and Making Podcasting Easy
People often procrastinate launching a podcast because they think it’s hard or that there are too many steps. However, as a podcast host, all you have to do is decide who to interview and let your process do the rest. Additionally, podcasting can help build relationships with local news stations and increase your visibility.

[00:29:43] – The Power of Podcasting
Adam highlights the found media aspect of podcasting, which is a credibility and testimonial that cannot be paid for. He further explains how podcasting is becoming one of the replacements for traditional media due to the democratization of information dissemination spurred by social media.

[00:32:10] – Ethical Marketing on Podcasts
When promoting your event on a podcast, Adam advises using seed-based marketing principles. Answer the question helpfully, but preface it by saying, “As I tell my audience in events that I host, such as then you just name the events and you don’t mention the date.” Avoid being too salesy, answer questions conversationally, and get your event out ethically.

[00:35:06] – The Podcast Reach System
Adam explains the Podcast Reach system, which helps entrepreneurs launch a podcast quickly and in the right way to leverage its benefits. The system includes access to a Podcast Reach video training series, in-depth calls to identify branding, creating a logo, and installing the website, the production and posting of the first eight episodes, and syndication to 15-17 of the most popular syndication networks.

[00:38:15] – Launching Your Podcast Successfully
Adam advises getting all pre-recorded guest episodes to announce on the same day to create buzz and traction. By tapping into their audience before their episode is released, you can build momentum and get more people interested in your podcast.

[00:39:18] – Getting Started with Podcast Reach
