With the rise in popularity of podcast guesting and booking services, my peers who host podcast hosts (and myself) experience a unique challenge – receiving hundreds of unqualified and unsolicited pitches to be on our show each week.

Standing out and capturing the attention of podcast hosts becomes a daunting challenge, not to mention actually getting booked! With the ratio of guests to popular shows being 17:1, and limited booking spots as most shows only publish once a week, there has never been a more important time to learn how to pitch the shows you want to be featured on. 

Recently I invited several of my podcaster friends to a special pitch session for my Million-Dollar Authority Mastermind, and I kicked off the session with a panel discussion on what gets someone booked these days.

On Amplify Your Success Podcast 387, I share this conversation with five powerhouse podcasters as they reveal the key factors to securing an interview on their shows and making a lasting impression on your audience.

You’ll meet show hosts Tiphany Kane, Tanya Smith, Samantha Riley, Shay Wheat, and Tish Times. These podcasting women share invaluable expert advice on how to elevate your podcast appearance game. From the importance of authenticity, storytelling, and vulnerability to the significance of professional preparation and engaging storytelling, this episode offers a treasure trove of knowledge to help you unlock the secrets of securing top podcast appearances and making a powerful impact on your audience.
