DIY Your Podcast Tour

Similar to a book tour, being a featured guest on a series of podcasts is a great way to build your audience and promote your products and services. In this session, learn how to organize your own podcast tour, amplify your message and grow your audience.

In this workshop, Danielle Desir covers how to find the right podcasts for your message, what to include in a pitch, productivity tools and resources to save time and things to do after your episode airs.

Build Your Brand Leveraging Podcasts

You do not need to have a podcast to benefit from using this popular medium to build your brand.

In this session, learn the benefits of pitching including the do’s and don’ts to pitching podcasters, simple ways to improve your pitch acceptance rate, and how to find the right shows for your message.


I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for bringing it during your online presentation yesterday. We had so many people interested in what you had to teach when it came to budgeting, paying off debt, and traveling through it all. We had so many questions in the chatbox – and compliments on your ease of presenting and vast array of knowledge that you were generously sharing! You did a  f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s  job. Thanks for taking the time out of your vacation to teach our community of travel lovers. Nomadic Matt and I really appreciate it!

Danielle was a guest in my premium coaching program, The Swift Inner Circle, as the ladies in the program requested a podcasting expert. The value, wisdom and expertise Danielle provided was incredible, and everyone left with pages and pages of notes on the exact steps they needed to take to create, produce, and market their podcasts. Danielle answered every question coherently, with grace, and evidence that she really does know her stuff when it comes to all things podcasting. I can’t wait to work with her again, and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a podcasting expert for their program or next event.

Danielle was gracious enough to speak at my first ever Money on the Mountain financial retreat. As a first time host of an international event, I was so worried about the attendee experience. But, I knew that Danielle would not disappoint. Attendees raved about the action tips that she shared, the personal stories that she divulged, and her genuineness. Danielle will be a wonderful speaker for whatever event she is a part of.
