How to Pitch Like a Human (three tips for podcast guesting and speaking opportunities)
Show Notes

I often hear business owners who have the desire to get more visibility through podcast guesting and speaking. 

These opportunities tend to not just happen magically or overnight and getting them can feel overwhelming at first. There’s a lot to consider but it’s well worth seeing if it’s a good next step for YOU to increase your visibility 

This episode will show you the benefits of being a podcast guest and guest speaker and make this whole pitching thing more actionable, and human. You'll walk away with some key things to remember when reaching out to potential collaborators. 

In the episode: 

  • How podcast guesting and speaking can help you as a business owner to increase your visibility and refine your message
  • How being on someone's podcast or on their stage should NOT just be another appointment in your calendar 
  • Three DO's when pitching to podcasters and for speaking opportunities
  • Don'ts you may want to avoid when pitching yourself 
  • And an encouragement not to give up even if you get a "no"!
