Almost every single time coming rightup starting a podcast is easy. A growing an audience can be hard podcastros face, so many challengesthat can make them want to quit. So I'm here to help them stay in the gain. This is podcast ther. Okay, so I wantto invite you to my virtual therapy, couch hot casting's very hard, and youmay be struggling with something very specific and you just need someone tolean on. So I want to invite you to go to speak pipe dotcom slush, poddecks,ask a question and I will answer it on the show and give you my personalizedadvice for you. Okay, today's question comes from Megan. Let's her, what shehas to say: Hey Travis, I'm having trouble getting my guest to share mypodcast with their audience any tips on...

...how I can get them to share okay, soyou've, just recorded in the interview you had this wonderful chemistry withyour guest you're, very excited. The podcast episode comes out and youscroll with your little scrolling thumbs down to see what they've, postedand they've posted nothing about. Sharing your potcast interview. It can feel like the biggest rejectionin the world, and I wan I just want to tell you it's probably not personalpeople are busy. They've got a lot of things going on, and I've got three ways you can almostguarantee that you're going to get them to share your episode. Okay, so, let'sstart with number one. Okay. This is very easy. The second that you're done with yourzoom call, or your interview you're, going to sit down with a pen and athank you note and you're going to handwrite them a thank you note forbeing on your podcast you're, going to...

...specifically tell them that you're sograteful to share their message with your audience and that you had such awonderful time and you hope you can do it again doesn't have to be. You know aShakespearian love letter, just something that will stick out from thecrowd: okay, so you're going to mail. This to them is soon as possible, andwhat that's going to do is that's going to create a a wonderful bond betweenthat person and you automatically because ninety nine point,nine percent of podcasters, will not write a handwritten. Thank you. Nowethey'll send an email or they'll have an automated thank you or they'll. Justsimply ask the person to share okay, but they're. Not writing a thank younote think about it. The last time you received something that was handwritten.It felt special didn't it. It felt, like somebody had taken time out of their day, to do something Nicefor you and it felt good, so we're going to do that for our Guass, we'regoing to show them that we're actually...

...grateful for their time and excited tobe connected with them. Okay, so that's step one every guest right, a tank. Younote now, step too, is going to be to help them almost do the work for themto promote your episode. So, whenever you use to email, yourguests, you're going to include some premade promotions for their episode,that could simply be an audiogram that you made a static image that shares aquote from the podcast. But the key here is: We want to do the work forthem. We do not want to ask them to promote our podcast and then have themhave to do work for us now, because we've sent this. Thank you note. Ouremail is going to get opened. Okay, it's going to get open quickly becausethey already have a wonderful feeling about us because we sent them a bank.You note and they're going to open up...

...their email and it's going to say, Heyyour episode's going to come out on Tuesday. I just wanted Tand, let youknow I put together some materials for you. If youe felt like promoting theepisode, Here's an Audiogram, here's, a a quote: You K, ow! You have to makethem in a couple of different formats, which is very easy to do with headlineor dot APP or Canva dotcom and cee it up for them, make it soseamlessly stupid. Easy that it would almost be dumb for them not to becauseyou've created content for them to release on that day. Okay, so you don'twant to justsimply write an email. Saying, hey be great. If you promotethe potcast today, your potcast comes out whatever right you want to tee itup. You want to send them a link to a folder full of full of different items.Different sizes, Instigram facebook, you to whatever, whatever you can. Okay,so do the work for them. Okay, now number three, and this is a supertopsecret hack, so any spies that are...

...listening right now plug your ears.Okay, this is my favorite way to trick somebody into sharing my podcast episode withtheir audience kind. So let's say we sent them a thank you note, and we alsosent them the premade marketing to promote our episode and they didn't doit. That's okay, we're also going to invite them to go, live with us about five days after our episodelaunches. So, let's UST say this episode comes out on Monday, I'm goingto say, hey guest, something that I do with a lot of my guest. Is We go liveon Friday d? We just have a you know: a quick live, maybe ten minutes where wesort of recap that we've had this conversation and promote the episode,it's sort of like a minipodcast. A bonus. Minipod cast it'd be awesome. If,if I could sign you up to do that now, if you can lock somebody into being onyour podcast for half an hour or an...

...hour, it's a pretty easy ass to getthem to go alive with you for ten minutes. So what this does, whetherthey know it or not? Is that when you go live with someone else, it notifiesyour audience that Hey pobdex is live, but whoever I go live with. It alsonotifies their audience that they're live okay. So it's basically like a free way to promote that you've donethis pod cast together and you can keep it brief. You could use something likepotdecks to ask a couple of fun questions during the live, which is myfavorite thing to do with poddaks. It doesn't have to be a a recycled versionof your pod cast, but just something to extend the fact that hey we releasethis episode this week. Okay and not everyone will do it, but theones that will it will automatically get sheered through ther audience,because the Algorithm, the algorithm,...

...saves us all and tells their audiencethat they're alive with us. So we're going to get some easy automatic cross.Pollenization t a 'ssomethat's. Some good corporate speak right there, H of our audiences. So let's recap thisthe three easy ways to get people to share your interviews. One write athank. You note write a nice little quick. Thank you not pop it in the mailtwo. Do the promotion work for them, make itso easy for them to promote your podcast. It would be stupid not to give them an audiogram.Give them a a quote post give them what they need to promote your show andthree invite them to go. Live it's a lot of fun. You could use pod decks tojust do. Do a quick round robin question or fast paced, Qan, a or just recap, the the fun partsof your episode and those are three...
