Why Use Video To Promote Your Podcast?
Aaron: Are you looking for a marketing idea that you can use week in and week out?
Christina: Something that we... well that I do for my podcast, and that we encourage our clients to do, is to create a short snippet video to help market the podcast.
Aaron: Videos get great engagement on social media, they can take a lot of work, but they will generate great responses and increase numbers for your podcast.
Christina: Yes! Think about how when you're scrolling through LinkedIn or Facebook, the short videos that appear in the feed, they often start playing automatically. So this is a great way to get that engagement first and foremost, instead of having someone have to click on a link to go to a website to then listen to your podcast.
Aaron: You're looking at this video right now, so that's working.
Christina: Yes, you are. One thing that I do to market my podcast is, if I'm doing let's say an online interview, let's say via Zoom, I'll just record the video as well. And even though I don't use the video as my main way of people consuming the podcast, I'll take a short snippet like a 60 to 90-second snippet, and I'll put that on LinkedIn and use that as a teaser or way to engage with my audience to get them to listen to the podcast. So essentially, you're repurposing content that you already have. So give that a go, and you know we'd be really excited to hear from you.
