Podfest Podcast Episode 26: Volunteering at Podfest, Creating a Brand Around your Podcast, and Pitching Yourself as a Guest, brought to you by Buzzsprout

Education and Inspiration Through Community

Valerie Hail of the Wealth Yoga Wine podcast joins us again! She’s contributing our tip for Track 1, which will really help your podcast grow: the benefits of volunteering at Podfest. Then for Track 2 on Monetization and Marketing, our friends at Buzzsprout did a great video on creating a brand around your podcast, which we’ll share with you today–and there’s a reason we are highlighting their YouTube channel, in particular. And, for our Key Note today, Glenn the Geek and Producer Jaime are answering a question that Glenn found on Facebook that really got us thinking: “if you have a very small podcast with a small following, how on earth do you get to be a guest on other people’s shows?” So, listen in for all of that and more on today’s episode. Welcome to the conference!
