Indirect Ask Email

Goal:

Get Referrals for more Guests from your network before launch.

When you get into more conversations with potential referral partners and clients before launch this results in potential ROI before the podcast is even released.

Key Points

  • Make sure to specifically list your criteria of who you want to feature (ex: “I am looking for B2B software companies that have over 200 staff.”)

  • Be sure to include social proof elements (i.e. your years of experience in the industry, respected companies you have done work for, etc.)

  • Make sure you are very specific filling in your details in the P.P.S. because they may have a need for your service, or have a referral for your service.
