New Distribution Channels: TikTok & YouTube Shorts

In a bid to engage with audiences in innovative ways, The Female VC Lab expanded its reach by embracing new distribution channels, particularly TikTok and YouTube Shorts.

On TikTok, the podcast shared bite-sized highlights, teaser clips, and impactful quotes from episodes. This approach aimed to capture the attention of a younger demographic and broaden the podcast's reach to audiences more accustomed to short-form, visually engaging content.

Similarly, YouTube Shorts became a canvas for The Female VC Lab to present condensed and visually appealing excerpts from episodes. This strategy leveraged the massive user base of YouTube, enhancing content discoverability and engagement.
