Today I’m turning my (and hopefully your) attention to your website in an effort to make sure that you’re maximizing your podcast’s exposure to your website visitor with three simple links. Even if you think you're doing these right... you might be doing these wrong. So it’s worth a re-check.
Some people will disagree with me on the importance of a website/page for a podcast. They’ll often cite how other mediums, like radio and TV, don’t rely on webpages that magically integrate with your living room television.
But webpage-to-TV integrations just aren’t necessary for TV or radio programs. Why? Because everyone knows how to work their TV or radio to tune into the station that broadcasts the show they want to watch/hear.
Not true for podcasting. Yes, the technology gap is shrinking every day. But still, a lot of people still don't know how to listen to podcasts.
That’s a foreign concept to you, the working podcaster. And that’s having a negative influence on the decisions you make on your website. If you think about your website at all. Because chances are, you probably don’t visit a website of a podcast prior to listening.
But you’re not a normal human. You’re a podcaster.
You don’t (or you shouldn’t) build your show’s website or webpage for podcasters. You build your show’s website or webpage for normal humans. Your website for your podcast, or the web page on your website for your podcast, needs to feature -- prominently -- three links for those normal humans.
And here’s my special offer just for you, the Podcast Pontifications audience: I’ll do this for you.
Seriously. If you don't know to add the links (and the proper graphics) to those destinations on your webpage or website, I’ll do it. If your IT department won't help you, I’ll do it. If you’re stuck in some crazy quagmire and have no idea where to start, I will do this for you.
No tricks. No hidden agenda. No trying to get you to sign up for something. Something I probably don’t even offer! This is me helping you. And since I won’t have episodes to put out for the next eight weeks, I should have some free time!
This is honestly my give-back to my audience. ByMeACoffee.com/EvoTerra. And please be sure to put something in the comments so I know you’re asking for help, OK?
Let's make your podcast page better. Let's make your website better with at least these three links.
There’s still one more episode coming out tomorrow. So I shall be back then with another Podcast Pontifications.
