If you are like us at Unite Socially when you come on to the show as a guest we provide you with a mp4 (if you choose to come into our studio for video podcasting) and a mp3 for you to place your podcast interview on your website and any other site you choose to leverage like social media. Being a guest on a podcast is literally one of the most powerful SEO tactics you can use to boost your SEO rankings and build your reputation, personal and corporate brand so make sure you have a brand strategy in place.
- Increased Web Traffic – Bolster your authority by making sure your website is worth visiting! What does this mean? Well, now that you’ve been on a podcast, you want to make sure your website is up to date. Most podcasters will tell people to visit your website for more information and will even link to your website in the show notes, so even if you don’t add your interview on your website you will want to make sure your website shines because the host will still be directing people to it. Anything you can do to show off your professional credentials on your website will help increase your likelihood of getting new collabs or landing a new client. Now is not the time to be meek and mild. Show off all the amazing things you’ve done so you position yourself as an expert in your field and own your influence. Take listen to hear more about Cheryl’s work and credentials. After all, this is what we are here to help you do: Build your beautypreneur profile as a influencer in your field.
- Optimize Your Social Media Bios – Being on a podcast today is having press and showing credibility. You are now news worthy and so is the show you were just on. Include this bit of information in your social media bios. Remember at the beginning of the show we talked about the endless hours spent searching on Instagram trying to find your tribe? You aren’t the only one doing this! Identify keywords related to your area of expertise and the topics you are an authority on and put them on your bio and tag the podcast you were a guest on. Not only will the host love you for the cross promotion but it will boost your authority and credibility.
- Fine Tune Your Messaging – Have you ever had someone introduce you wrong? For example, been at a networking event and someone introduces you as a blogger when you don’t want to be known as a blogger because you are really a copywriter who uses blogs to convey your skill set? You can come up with a serial of examples here. Well, if done right what being featured on a podcast or starting your own podcast can do for you is help set the record straight. Being on a podcast with a well written one-sheet will help you fine tune your messaging on what market you serve and what your ideal client or partnership looks like.
