Podcasters and Bloggers: are you promoting your content with videos?
It’s an excellent way to get more visibility for your podcasts and articles. This is a tactic I’ve used on and off for a few years. It’s ideal for podcasts since you already have an audio file. And, for articles, you can record a short summary to use for a video.
Podcast to Audiogram
1. Edit a short clip (3-6 minutes) of audio from your podcast episode. As you see in the example below by Melanie Benson, the audiogram is created by joining an image with an audio file, waveform, and transcription to create a video. (source: Podcast Insights)
2. Using Canva or your design tool of choice, create an image in 3 sizes (to use on various social media platforms): landscape (1280 x 720), vertical (1080 x 1920), and square (1200 x 1200) with the podcast title, name of the episode and your name or guest’s name and URL for where the listener can find the full episode (probably on your website).
3. Go to Headliner and create a video with your audio file and image. For the most flexibility, use the landscape version so it will work best on YouTube and IGTV. For IGTV you will also need the vertical image to use for the cover photo.
4. Upload the video on social media with a call to action to go listen to the episode at your preferred location.
Article to Audiogram
1. In Canva (free and fee), create an image you can use as a template for future YouTube (1280 x 720) video thumbnails.
2. Using Audacity (free), record a short summary of the article.
3. Create an audiogram on Headliner (free and fee).
4. Upload the video to YouTube.
What else can you do with the audiograms?
1. Post the audiogram video file (mp4) on Facebook and LinkedIn as a native upload (not the link from YouTube). If the video is under 4 minutes you can also post it to Twitter.
2. Create a verticle cover image for IGTV and post the audiogram video there and share it on your Instagram profile and feed.
4. Post the video and transcript on your blog.
Remember, an audiogram is a video and videos get more visibility and better engagement on social platforms.
