Why cross-promote your podcast?

Cross-promotion campaigns are low-cost and often generate a better ROI than other forms of marketing. Since listeners trust the hosts of their favourite podcasts, they are open to hearing guest interviews and are highly engaged.

Appearing on relevant shows provides a huge opportunity to increase your subscriber count or acquire your ideal customers.

What is podcast cross-promotion?

Podcast cross-promotion is an effective strategy to grow your audience by partnering with other podcasters. The idea is that you promote each other by appearing on each other's shows.

It is a popular self-promotion strategy for podcasters because it provides you with the opportunity to get in front of your target audience at zero cost.

What is a podcast promo swap?

Also known as podcast cross-promotion, a promo swap is where two hosts agree to promote each other's show. Promo swaps can take several forms such as ad swaps, interviews and episode swaps, and the idea is to get in front of a new audience and attract them to your own show.

Does podcast cross-promotion work?

Podcast cross-promos are a great way to get in front of listeners who haven't heard of you before but who match your target audience.

If you're an indie podcaster, you can gain new listeners by creating some awesome new content. If you're a business, you can build brand awareness by getting your name out there in front of the people who matter.

What are examples of podcast cross-promotion?

Most podcasters collaborate in one of three ways: teaser ads, interviews or episode swaps.

Teaser ads - Probably the easiest way to work with another podcast involves simply advertising each other's show. You swap trailers and run them as either a pre-roll, mid-roll or post-roll ad in an agreed number of episodes.

Interviews - If you spend a whole episode guesting with another podcaster then that's a great way to give their listeners an example of your style. Audiences get a more in-depth experience.

Swap episodes - You and another host can agree to swap whole episodes. That's when you include one of their episodes in your feed, and they do the same for you.
