Regular or irregular?
This is part five of my six-part series for creating a better podcast to compete with the really popular shows.
Tip number five: to build the best possible team for your podcast, find a mix of one-time and regular contributors.
Remember to think like an editor of a magazine. Each podcast episode can be made up of segments or stories.
Regular contributors on your team might be a co-host or commentator or cover a specific “beat” for your show. And, you can think of the one-time contributors as being like freelance writers for a magazine.
This model allows you to create a flexible virtual team for each podcast episode. Bringing in new contributors on each episode can help keep your show fresh.
Another advantage to bringing in one-time contributors is it might be easier to find people to create content for the show for free – since it’s a one-time deal. And, you can think of it like a guest post on a blog. Depending on your show and your audience, it could be good exposure for the contributor.
So, go out there and put your team together. Your show will be a lot better for it.
