Brittany Stewart wants her beauty podcast to reach beyond its niche.
Brittany Stewart has a background in journalism and a passion for beauty. This combination has allowed her to see the possibilities of the niche world of beauty when it comes to podcasting. Her award-winning podcast, Beauty Island, tells stories through memories connected to beauty products. Brittany’s background at Mamamia, Australia’s largest network for women, gave her built-in know-how for niches. However, producing a podcast as a “one-woman show” as she explains it, has been a learning experience, to put it lightly.
In this episode, I got to ask Brittany some pretty eye-opening questions mainly about honing down the podcast niche market. She had some constructive advice about garnering interest in your show, as well as tailoring your reach-out emails to score awesome guests. As a journalist, Brittany understands the unbridled power words can have. So she hammered out the importance of understanding how to word your podcast description in a way that fully explains the show’s concept and sets it apart in your niche. This is definitely an episode to pay attention to, especially if your podcast fits into a niche category.
