Are You Ready to Perform at That Level?

Everybody knows exposure is everything. But, 99.9% of want-to-be-guests haven’t acquired enough authority to be on the the show they desire to be on. The bigger the podcast, the more protective the producer or host is with their show. They like to work with higher authority guests. It’s what keeps their podcasts at the top.

Josh’s clear step-by-step process to build authority:

  1. Have personal stories ready to share.
  2. Build your authority online, especially through Twitter and LinkedIn.
  3. Become a guest on other podcasts (and do it a lot).
  4. Be authentic.
  5. Provide value to the show and host.

Top podcasters take their interviews and guest seriously. It’s how they stay on top.

Jessica finds these tips help secure your spot:

  1. Build personal relationships, or get a warm introduction.
  2. Be able to pass the due diligence and vetting screens.
  3. Sometimes you have to pay to play.
  4. Consider yourself a peer, if you are not there yet, get there.
