Podcasts are more than an audio channel. And it's easy to get excited about creating cover art, building podcast episode trailers, and creating social posts. But from my experience, many companies don't spend enough time on one of the most basic elements of their show - podcast show notes.
Hosting a podcast is a great way to spread your company's message and bring in new customers, but guesting on someone else's podcast can offer a much wider audience. By being a guest on another show, you're in the spotlight. You can get more airtime and focus on talking about your business, while reaching an audience you may not normally have access to.

Although there are a lot of different podcast formats, many podcasters start off with an interview-style show. And it's a good format for a company to use as their initial approach.

A lot of marketers are starting podcasts and that's great. It creates a content marketing flywheel for your company's brand and you get to make deeper personal connections.But most marketers don't focus on the conversation. Instead, the hosts of branded podcasts treat a podcast recording session as a transaction. As a result, episodes start to feel calculated. It's almost as if the host turned a natural conversation into something Siri would yell out of your iPhone speaker.If you want to have an interesting conversation and create podcast episodes your customers love, it's important to focus on the questions you ask during an interview.In this article, we'll cover the importance of research and how to craft better podcast questions for your company's show.
