5 reasons to get guests on your podcast
Are you Looking to grow your audience and take your content to the next level? Having guests feature on your podcast is a great way to do just that. In this post, we run through the benefits of hosting guests and how we've made that easy on Reason.
Introduce new opinions
Having guests speak can be a great way of showcasing different opinions and perspectives within your podcast. Whether your guest agrees or disagrees with you, a variety of viewpoints on a matter is a great way to kick off interesting discussions that your listeners will love.
Get some expert input
As well as including varying perspectives, hosting a guest on your podcast can also introduce a new layer of expertise and knowledge on a subject. Interviewing or having a discussion with an expert in their field offers and unique way for you and your audience to learn alongside each other. This adds additional depth to your content. Don't forget to take the opportunity to ask the questions that your audience would want to know the answers to!
Advertise and grow your audience
Having other podcasters feature on your own podcast can be an incredibly effective method of growing your audience. Guests who appear on your podcast are likely to promote your podcast if they are making an appearance, be that on social media or within their content. This can help direct traffic to you and generate new listeners. Remember, this can also work the other way around! Appearing as a guest on someone else's podcast can also channel listeners towards your work.
Change the structure of your podcast
If you normally host your podcast as an individual, having a guest feature is an opportunity to switch up the structure of your podcast. It opens up a chance to experiment with an interview-style layout to keep your listeners engaged.
Have different voices
Lastly, it's important to remember that podcasting is an audio experience. Having different voices on your podcast can add texture and build layers to your audio, keeping it from feeling one dimensional.
