Introducing Podcast Guesting

A New and Exciting Way to Leverage the Power of Podcasting without the Need to Start Your Own Podcast

With 5 million podcasts globally, all the world – to quote Shakespeare – is a stage.

Welcome to the emerging world of Podcast Guesting, where there are 5 million stages for you to connect with global audiences across time zones and without the need for travel.

Podcast Guesting is where you, as an expert speaker or featured guest, get invited to speak on someone else's podcast.

Whether your audience are Health tech investors or e-commerce entrepreneurs, there are ready-built stages out there for you where the host has done the hard work of building an audience around the conversations their community cares about.

Why Podcast Guesting?

We've been in the podcast game since 2018 but only recently has interest in podcast guesting surged (more about podcast guesting pro). There are several reasons for this. Firstly, thought leaders are seeking out better ways to engage with their audiences in an authentic way. Secondly, it's getting harder to build an audience.

What Are Thought Leaders Saying About Podcast Guesting?

“Forget Guest Posting… Guest Podcasting is King.”

Thought Leaders today understand the power of podcast guesting and leveraging other people's audiences

Leverage the Power of OPA: Other People's Audiences

The price of your audience's attention is higher than ever. That's why it makes sense to leverage OPA: other people's audiences .

You see, there are 5 million podcasts in the world today, many of which have spent time nurturing and growing their communities. (more Podcast data here). It could take years to grow an audience hosting your own podcast or writing a blog, but with podcast guesting, it's plug and play.

Employ this Thought Leadership strategy to build your audience

Neil Patel and Pat Flynn use podcast guesting to both extend interactions with existing followers and tap into new audiences globally. Can you? The below example highlights how you too can employ this strategy to build your personal brand awareness. In this example, we introduce our client as an expert guest to the host's audience leading to engaging and meaningful interaction around the conversations that both care about.

When it comes to Thought Leadership, you have to be smart. One conversation could change everything...

“One guest podcast spot is worth more than 1000 social media posts”

3 Key Benefits of Podcasts Today

We define the 3 key benefits of podcasts for thought leadership today as ones of scale and scope:

1) Podcast Market Growth Globally
2) Access to Influential Audiences
3) Deep Levels of Emotional Connection and Engagement between Guest and Audience

#1 Podcast Market Growth

Podcasts have grown significantly in recent years, with a 94% annual growth rate. This means that the potential reach for your message is global.

What started initially as a consumer trend has spread into niche business genres.

Podcasts have also grown rapidly in new markets outside of North America and with younger, more influential listeners.

#2 Influential Audiences

40% of adults report listening to podcasts regularly. The average podcast listener subscribes to 7 podcasts in their feed.

Within the influential Millennial demographic who have grown wary of social media and fake content, podcast listenership is higher. 60% of Millennials report they regularly listen to podcasts.

#3 Engagement Not Follower Count

Podcasts offer thought leaders a credible and authentic channel to build their personal brand.

Research shows that audiences view engagement not size of followings as a measure of thought leadership. This means consistent and active conversations that matter with people who care are more important for your community than growing a social media following.

The below example from a podcast we helped book our client on, demonstrates how podcasts are a platform to connect guests with new audiences in a meaningful and engaging way.

Podcast Guesting is a Channel for Leaders to Influence Decisions Internally and Externally

Podcast Guesting as a Channel for Influence

Authentic Influence at Scale

As a business leader, you will be faced with the constant challenge of influencing 2 communication channels - Internal and External . Internal conversations are with your team, your partners and your ecosystem. External conversations are with leads, prospects and existing clients.

In an increasingly noisy media landscape, podcasts offer leaders a channel to influence ecosystems and communities at scale with authenticity.

People Expect Corporate Leaders to Behave and Speak Differently

You no longer have the captive audience you enjoyed 5 to 10 years ago. Leaders have to adapt to the evolving nature of the audience. Industry data shows that we value the size of a leader's following less than its quality. We increasingly follow and respect corporate leaders who actively engage their audiences in an authentic manner, sharing their ideas and opening the conversation to discussion.

Thought Leadership has a Significant Positive Impact on the Sales Funnel

People follow people, not brands. We increasingly buy from people we trust, rather than recognized household brands. We can no longer rely on the old fashioned model of relying on corporate brand awareness to open doors. We need to build trust and relationships around the individual. You can measure the impact of Podcast Guesting and Thought Leadership ROI by its impact on your sales funnel. Edelman data shows that Thought Leadership positively impacted the sales conversations in a number of ways: 88% of execs surveyed said thought leadership "Increased Respect" for the vendor, and 45% said it was directly influential in "leading to purchase".
