Promote a show
Host a Space the week before your podcast’s premiere. Gather and excite fans before the launch. Schedule your Space and Tweet a link 14 days ahead to alert fans. Tweet the show’s date, time, and hashtag. This is a fantastic time to introduce listeners to the show’s host(s).
After a compelling episode, answer questions.
Host a Space after a popular podcast or episode. Fans can ask questions via Tweet or mic access.
Tell fans to use the show’s hashtag while tweeting questions. Bookmark Tweets you wish to answer so they’re easy to find. Share your Tweet in the Space while answering a question.
Let your fans ask you questions using their voice to improve their experience. Encourage listeners to ask to speak or use the raised hand emoji. Once a fan is chosen, they can talk. When the person is done, revoke speaking access and move on.
Fans’ final thoughts
