    How to Expand on Your Niche with Brittany Stewart

    How to Expand on Your Niche with Brittany Stewart

    Creating a niche podcast certainly comes with its challenges. However, if you do it right, you could end up with quite a unique show that fills a specific need for listeners. You have to be willing to have a little flexibility with your interpretation of success. And you have to let your audience have a little freedom.
    Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast.  I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week you’ll hear me, and a star-studded guest lineup, dig deep into the podcasting process. We’ll bring you tactics, tips, and tricks to use in your own podcasting journey. We’ll teach you how to build an audience. And we’ll show you how to keep them coming back, show after show.
    So if you want to start a podcast, or expand your current audience, this is the show for you.
    Brittany Stewart wants her beauty podcast to reach beyond its niche. Brittany Stewart has a background in journalism and a passion for beauty. This combination has allowed her to see the possibilities of the niche world of beauty when it comes to podcasting. Her award-winning podcast, Beauty Island, tells stories through memories connected to beauty products.  Brittany’s background at Mamamia, Australia’s largest network for women, gave her built-in know-how for niches. However, producing a podcast as a “one-woman show” as she explains it, has been a learning experience, to put it lightly.
    In this episode, I got to ask Brittany some pretty eye-opening questions mainly about honing down the podcast niche market. She had some constructive advice about garnering interest in your show, as well as tailoring your reach-out emails to score awesome guests. As a journalist, Brittany understands the unbridled power words can have. So she hammered out the importance of understanding how to word your podcast description in a way that fully explains the show’s concept and sets it apart in your niche. This is definitely an episode to pay attention to, especially if your podcast fits into a niche category. 
    Other topics in this episode: Brittany’s background story The podcasts that inspired her Tips for cold emailing The importance of clear articulation in your podcast description The importance of making your podcast a priority, even if it’s a side hustle Understanding your audience Anchor your concept, but leave it up for interpretation Audio quality and where not to cut corners Links:

We hash out why a transformation for the listener is so incredibly vital for your content to pack the necessary punch. I also give you several examples of how to create an invitation for a transaction, that may be a whole lot simpler than you envisioned. If your content is falling on deaf ears, then I’m going to show you exactly how to upgrade it. Remember, your content is an extension on your podcast, so every click, every read, every view is all going towards amping up your credibility with your audience.

    How To Podcast For Business

    How To Podcast For Business

    Should small businesses start a podcast? Absolutely! If you know and understand your business foundations, a podcast can help expand your reach.
    Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast. I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week you’ll hear me, and a star-studded guest lineup, dig deep into the podcasting process. We’ll bring you tactics, tips and tricks to use in your own podcasting journey. We’ll teach you how to build an audience. And we’ll show you how to keep them coming back, show after show.
    So if you want to start a podcast, or expand your current audience, this is the show for you.
    In this episode, we’re bringing you a portion of my interview on The Morning Kick podcast. Andrew Pitchford and I break down podcasting in the business world. And he asks me some pretty good questions about what does and doesn’t work for business-minded listeners. 
    If you’ve listened to this show before, then you know my story. But if not, this interview is a good overview of what I do and how I got here. Andrew asks me about Bond Appetit, a podcast I was able to generate a 1.5 million listener base for in about 4.5 months. I don’t tell you about this to brag, but as an example of how quickly success can come in the podcasting world. But yes, I’m aware that this isn’t the average result. In fact, many podcasts don’t even make it past their first episode. I don’t want either of these extremes to encourage or discourage you, just to make you aware of the reality of podcasting.
    Andrew and I also chat about what kind of businesses benefit from podcasts. And we focus on the things you need to be clear on before starting your show. This is an eye-opening conversation for those of you who may be doubting the impact a podcast would have on your business or brand.

    238. Start With Your Why

    238. Start With Your Why

    I’m a firm believer that people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it. This is especially important in podcasting because listeners can identify inauthenticity pretty quickly.
    Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast. I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week you’ll hear me, and a star-studded guest lineup, dig deep into the podcasting process. We’ll bring you tactics, tips and tricks to use in your own podcasting journey. We’ll teach you how to build an audience. And we’ll show you how to keep them coming back, show after show.
    So if you want to start a podcast, or expand your current audience, this is the show for you. This episode is a snippet from 2015’s We Are Podcast conference, and the speaker is yours truly. In this speech, I focus on why it’s so critical determining your “why” before starting your podcast. I don’t care what your why is. And I don’t mean that dismissively. I don’t care what your “why” is because it could be just about anything, as long as it’s clear, and it’s your own personal mission. That’s how you make an impact.
    So how do you find your why? Well, I break that down in this episode. I also explore how podcasting allows you to build on your purpose and evolve. And I go into some ways to set yourself up to win everyday. This is a great episode for anyone at the beginning of their podcasting journey or someone who may be feeling a little lost along the way.

    237. How To Do Your Research with Kate Meade

    237. How To Do Your Research with Kate Meade

    So you’ve decided to start a podcast. Cool. But have you done your research? I’m not just talking about comparing different mics, or doing a social media search on similar podcasts. I’m talking real in-depth research into who your audience will be and what they want to hear.
    Welcome to Should I Start A Podcast. I’m Ronsley Vaz. Each week you’ll hear me, and a star-studded guest lineup, dig deep into the podcasting process. We’ll bring you tactics, tips and tricks to use in your own podcasting journey. We’ll teach you how to build an audience. And we’ll show you how to keep them coming back, show after show.
    So if you want to start a podcast, or expand your current audience, this is the show for you.
    A successful podcast has an obscene amount of research behind it. In this episode, I sat down with Kate Meade, host of The Women of Influence Podcast. Kate is no newbie to audio. She was in the radio world for several years before even thinking of starting a podcast. But hosting radio shows like Breakfast Radio for ACE Radio Australia doesn’t automatically mean you have the chops for podcasting.
    Kate and I get into the difference between interviewing for radio versus podcasting. And we explore why the latter requires way more research. She breaks down what questions you need to ask yourself before you even get to the research phase. And why she recommends getting at least 5 episodes under your belt before going live.
