If you want to become famous, whether on a small scale or a large one, it seems like the internet is the place to do it these days. When a new show comes on TV, think American Idol, many of them aren’t hosting in person auditions anymore, but instead having wannabe’s submit videos or podcasts of themselves in order to get a chance to be the next big sensation, in whatever field of entertainment or work the contest is for.
Businesses also know the great benefits of podcasts and videos. People love to be entertained, and with podcasts and videos found online, for free, they can get all of the entertainment and knowledge they want. Whether you want your face to be famous, or your products, you can do it using these two things.
Pick A Topic
The first step in becoming a podcast or video sensation is to decide what it is you want to tell people about, or talk to them about. What do you like to talk about? If you’re a talker a podcast will be perfect for you, and there are unlimited options for what you can talk about. Talk about movies, music, relationships, health care, or anything else you have knowledge and interest in.
Videos are great to do if you have items you want to show people, whether they are your own products or you are doing video reviews of things supplied to you. They are also great for doing tutorials, if you have a specialty. People that work on cars get a lot of visitors to posts on how to do different home car maintenance things, or on how to diagnose different vehicle issues. So too do people that enjoy doing makeup or hairstyles. Even hunting videos and podcasts are popular, whether you’re sharing reviews of the latest rifle scope or taking people out on safari with you.
The second step in becoming an internet sensation, or at least using the internet to boost your business and sales, is to get online and get established. If you plan to do videos you need to be on sites like YouTube. Search out podcast hosting sites. Get on social media so you have a place to share the videos and podcasts you make.
You can’t expect people to simply find your podcast if you aren’t advertising it. You also won’t be appearing on the front page of Google right away, no matter how many tags you include, so you want to do everything you can to get the word out on what you are doing.
When you post a new podcast or video be sure to share them across social media, on your own person website, and even consider doing a weekly or monthly newsletter. The more ways you get the word out the more views you will get, and the more chances you have of becoming an internet sensation!
