How to Get On Podcasts
If you want to know how to get on podcasts, remember that podcasts are simply online radio shows. Just like videos, but you don’t have to do hair and makeup. Some people like podcasts because they can listen to them while doing other things like driving or doing chores.
You don’t have to have your own podcast either. You can search iTunes, the Stitcher podcast directory, and even Google to find podcasts.
Because podcasts are online content (like blogs), podcast hosts have to keep putting out new content, and are always looking for show ideas and interesting guests.
Research a few podcasts to see if you like the sound of the show. Then you contact the host, and pitch them an idea for their show, and mention your eBook and online course. For example, you could suggest “How to Become a Beekeeper” or “How You Can Help the Honey Bees if You’re Not a Beekeeper”
When a podcast host says yes, make sure to send them a bio that mentions your website, eBook, and online course. They will usually read it when introducing your on their show and/or their website.

The host will give you a time to call in, and you can usually dial-in from your phone (you won’t need special equipment). They’ll either ask you questions like an interview, or ask you to talk about something specific, or both. Of course, be sure to tell people about your digital products.
After you’re done, the podcast is usually available as a widget that you can also share on your blog, social media, etc. People don’t always get to hear the podcast live, but they can download the file, and listen to the replay on their smartphone or desktop later.
ADVANCED: You can also have the audio from your videos made into audio mp3 files. If you have any videos that sound great but have video issues, the audio can be used as is, or edited into a podcast. Jim Keyes has done this for some of us in the Internet Famous VIP Group.
All in all, you have a great presence that would also work in audio, so it’s something to consider for the future.
