Title of Talk: How to Turn Podcast Appearances into Profits
Description: Marketing and publicity for today’s independent publisher, author or authorpreneur is at its heart is starting a conversation that adds value to a potential future buyer. Traditional media outlets such as TV and radio rely on “sound bites”, which don’t really allow enough time for a potential customer to begin to know, like and trust you. Enter the new boom of the podcasting industry, the new version of radio that is distributed mainly by itunes, stitcher, Google Play and several other platforms. Because a lot of the podcast shows today are interview-based and last up to an hour or more, podcasting offers independent publishers, authors and authorpreneurs a a great opportunity to connect to an already-built and targeted audience. In fact, podcast guest appearances have been shown to convert 25 time better than blogs!
