How to Make your Show Special

So once you have a bunch of these ideas of like what she needs to know what she's interested in what season of life's she's in, what questions you get asked the most often next we're going to niche this down, we're going to come at it from different angles and this is going to help you shape a show that not everybody already has. So in your workbook on page I think it's page six, oh yeah page seven so we're going to create a personal angle for your show because we talked about that people want to get to know you they want you to be yourself they want you really get a vibe of what you are and all of this is going to lead into what you're going to name your show, the kind of image you're going to create in your show, how you're going to write the description, it's getting really clear on what's different about your show. So what is different about your perspective or experience? If you answer this question and you put in it your show and you put it in your description people are going to...

get why they should listen to you. So you have four kids, you work at home, right? You own a small business, those are all different about than how other people are living, right? Laura has all kinds of amazing background experience that makes her perspective and experience different so she would have a totally different show. And this whether it's how you actually learned your craft or how you sell your craft or it's what you did before like people with an art background who then go into the handmade business have a different perspective than people who are self taught or they went to a folk art school or they learned at their grandmother's knee. All of that is super interesting. So write out what's a little different or just your own, even if you don't know what makes it different, write out where you're coming from in your business and in your content cause that's what's going to make it interesting. The next question that seems kind of obvious but what do you love to talk about? So this is my dog sniffing my knitting (laughs) I love talking about my dogs and my knitting. So could you see yourself talking about week after week after week after week on your show? Write it all down. You wanna get just as many ideas as possible cause we're going to piece all of this together into your show and into your content. So what do you just love to talk about that you could talk about forever?

I design embroidery patterns and I love podcasts but I wasn't sure what I would talk about in my own podcast without being able to show pictures. After watching this course I already have 20+ ideas for podcast topics, plus I now know how to get a podcast up and running, step-by-step, AND how it fits with my business goals. Tara Swiger is an excellent teacher and coach. I filled page after page with notes!
