Podcast Marketing Services That Drive Huge Increases in Visits and Sales
Podcasting is a great way to get content right from your voice.
We interview you (and/or your customers) with a series of questions around a particular topic that we want to rank well in Google. Then, the content goes up on a blog post with the transcript.
You and/or your customers look like a hero, prospects can listen to you, and Google will gobble up all of the keywords as well as the in-depth content.
We pick three to five questions for a typical short 10 to 20-minute podcast. We use keyword research to pick the topic and the questions and hash it out until it feels complete.
“Hi, I am John Maher and I’m here today with Susie Smith the president of Susie’s wicked awesome widgets and today were talking about how red widgets are changing the landscape of our industry forever. Welcome Susie.”
“Glad to be here with you today, John.”
“So Susie, why are red widgets so important to your customers?”
And then Susie shares her thoughts on a few questions. After an engaging conversation that she would normally have one-on-one with a customer, we wrap up. But instead of limiting all of that effort of speaking to one person, it is now opened up to the world.
The conversation is extremely natural and almost 100% of our customers have an ‘aha’ moment after doing a podcast and realize it’s actually fun and easy. We do not write out scripts for these and that makes them flow more naturally. You can make bullet points for yourself to make sure you know what you want to say in response to each question.
Video is honestly harder but not terribly so, which you can read about on our video marketing page.
Here’s an example of a very small business client of ours where podcasting and videos are the only content he does for his blog.
We put a call to action on the homepage of the Rug Gallery site, which takes users directly to a “tag” page with all of the posts tagged as “podcasts”
Here’s an example of a podcast in a blog post.
Here is what the URL looks like:
We are now moving to making even shorter URLs as Google prefers that and it’s easier for customers to read in the search results pages.
The iTunes podcast page has 55 podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-rug-gallery/id1040966829?mt=2
Pretty powerful, right?
The good news is that all you need to do is show up and talk just like you do with your customers. We handle the rest and turn it into actual leads that you can turn into sales.
You can also turn the content into Ebooks and become an author almost overnight!
Here is an example of how we made a call to action for an Ebook generated solely from the cleaned-up transcripts of the podcast conversations.
Is it perfect prose?
It reads remarkably well, in most cases, because many good writers have a conversational tone and it gets done instead of being forever on a ‘to do’ list.
Sam runs a small business and is not on one of our comprehensive programs, but even consistently doing quality podcasts and videos has given him a boost of over 1,800 keywords driving traffic.
We drove a 15,433% increase in ranking key phrases mostly from podcasting!
We have done this on projects where we ended up winning significant awards, like “Best of Show” of all of New England Financial Marketing for creating the second-best online only bank in the country.
So, this works for small businesses and large ones as well.
