A podcast one sheet helps you easily convey to a prospective podcast host whether you’re a good fit for their show. Being a guest on other people’s podcasts is one of the best ways to promote your business and build your brand. But it can sometimes get overwhelming especially with running your business, preparing to launch your podcast, or researching podcasts to be a guest on. That’s why you need to create a podcast one sheet.
What is a Podcast One-Sheet?
A podcast one-sheet is your guest “resume” for handing out to podcast hosts so they can get a quick look at who you are and what you do. It’s what helps the host quickly determine if you are a good fit for their show. I found that the one sheet helps me to focus on what’s important to talk about as a podcast guest. In the same way, it gives the prospective host a quick and easy way to determine what to talk about during the interview.
You can create your one sheet using Google Docs or Word. But Canva has many template options. Just search for “one sheet” and choose a template to use. You might get options for a resume but just choose a template you can easily work with.
If you don’t have a Canva Pro account be sure to use only the free images and templates so you’re not charged a fee for creating your one sheet.
What to put on your podcast one sheet
It’s important to put only the most relevant information on your one sheet. Create a clean One Sheet that hits the main points you want to get across to the host. That said here are the basic parts of a one sheet:
- A short bio (you can always create a link if you want to give the host more info about your background.
- Your own media: A book, podcast, or any other media you’ve created
- The topics you want to discuss
- Suggested questions hosts can ask you
- Your contact: All your contact and social media details that can fit neatly
Below is a copy of my simple podcast one-sheet. As you can see it doesn’t have to be fancy. But it has enough information that can lead to more questions from a podcast host. Perfect!
How To Use A Podcast One Sheet
Place a link to your podcast one sheet on your landing pages, social media platforms or other public profiles where you want to be noticed by podcasters. You can also place a link to the one sheet in the footer of your email or below your signature. Anywhere it can be easily accessed.
A podcast one sheet is not a necessity but it can help you stay organized when you want to be a guest on other people’s podcasts.
It’s a tool that shows podcast hosts your professionalism and gives them a quick look at who you are and how you can benefit their audience.
