With more than 2.1 million podcasts out there you are probably curious as to how to get yours heard.  Tom gives us strategies for getting the most out of your podcast, how to hit the right audience, and why big numbers don’t need to be a priority.

In addition, we discuss the pros of being a guest on the bevy of podcasts that exist.  Tom explains why you should try being a guest 20 or 30 times before starting your own.  Then he breaks down why being a guest might be better for some than putting in the time and money to become a host of their own show.

If you chose to be a guest you’ll want to hear the advice Tom has for ensuring you maximize the potential of your appearance.  Tom compares being a podcast guest to being invited to the host’s home for dinner.

If you have a podcast this episode will help you reach new heights.  If you want to be a guest it will make sure you don’t arrive empty-handed.
