That's why Podcast Hawk built? With this many podcasts out there, there are hundreds for you to appear on
Why was Podcast Hawk created? The answer is simple. I needed it. My name is Ray Blakney and I am the founder of Podcast Hawk. Like many other small business owners out there I was looking for a way to promote my business (www.livelingua.com) with a tight budget when my competitors had millions in VC money.
A friend of mine suggested trying to get on Podcasts. I thought, that is a great idea. So I went online and started to look for podcasts for me to appear on. A few hours later I realized that my effort – at least the way I was doing it – was futile.
There are over 1 million podcasts in the primary podcast directory of iTunes. There is no way to search them for specific topics. You have no way of knowing if they are still active or not. Do they do interviews? The only way to find out is to open each one and check.
As a computer programmer my first thought was “there has to be a better way than this”. So I looked for one… and I found nothing.
So, I did what any good entrepreneur does when they can’t find a software they need. They build it.
That is how Podcast Hawk was born.
