HGTV Knows My Podcast
HGTV stands for the Home and Garden Television Network.
HGTV produces a full line up of TV shows about decorating, remodeling, and building. If it has anything to do with a home they probably have a TV show about it. HGTV is a part of the Scripts Network.
Kathy, and I produce podcasts about two of their TV Shows. We produce The Fixer Upper Podcast about the The Fixer Upper TV Show with Joanna and Chip Gaines. We also produce the Hometown Podcast about the Hometown TV Show with Erin and Ben Napier.
Kathy, and I have made several different marketing attempts to get on the radar of the folks at HGTV. We had no idea if they even knew we existed, or if they liked what we were doing with our podcasts.
Our long term goal is to partner with HGTV, but before that can even be possible they must be aware of what we are doing.
Last night while researching information for our website I found a link to a blog post on the HGTV's website. The blog post was written by Erica Reitman, and titled 10 Design Podcasts to Listen to Right Now.
At first I thought that HGTV was producing their own podcasts. Great now I am competing with HGTV instead of partnering with them.
Then I realized our podcast was one of the 10 podcasts listed in the article, and that we were nuber 4 on the list of 10.
Here is what Erin wrote about our podcast.
Wow, now I am confident that HGTV knows about our podcast. I think I can assume they are happy with what we are doing. I am sure our podcast would not be included as number four in Erica's list of ten if HGTV was unhappy with our work.
Even though I have been producing podcasts for over thirteen years, I was still excited to see Erica's review on the HGTV website.
It seemed to validate our work for some strange reason.
