School of Podcasting - Plan, Launch, Grow and Monetize Your Podcast

Oct 10, 2022

People talk about how hard it is to find guests for their show. I think a more accurate statement is "it's hard to find a good guest for your show." Today I have directories where you can list your show (and yourself) to help you connect with the podcasting space. 

Dave's Fun Text Tool

I'm testing TextMagic (aff) because there is no monthly fee. There is a $4/month fee for the phone line, and they charge you 4 cents per text I send. I'm not using this for marketing, I am using it to auto-respond when people text the words (with follow or new to 833204405) you will get a text from me. I'm using Text Magic (aff link). 

Previous Episode on All thing Interviews

Previously I did an episode 678 about interviews from both sides of the microphone. 

Keeping Track of Who and When You Contact Potential Podcast Guests

The tool is used for this is Less Annoying CRM which isn't so much about building sales funnels as it is a way to keep track of your contact with people. There is a free CRM from Hub Spot but there is a bit of a learning curve.

Here is a List of Places Where You Can Find Guests For Your Podcast

For Podcasters: Invite relevant experts and other podcasters to be guests on your podcast. For Experts: Get booked on great podcasts to expand your reach and audience. I have received more quality interviews from this resource than any other guest booking service. is the world's only marketplace to find professional guests and platforms. Got some publicity as this incorporates the ability to charge to be on a show, or charge a fee to appear on a show.
