In this episode we’re going to talk about how to start a podcast right. Stay tuned. Hey, everyone. Thank you for joining me for today’s episode of Interview Connections TV. I am your host, Jessica Rhodes. I’m here to help you rock the podcast from both sides of the mic. In today’s episode we’re going to talk about how to start a podcast interview right, and guess what? This happens way before the recording even takes place. It happens before you even schedule the recording because you know what? A great podcast interview, starting a great relationship with the podcast host happens before you even get on that Skype call with them. You ready for my number one tip?
When you get booked for that interview, whether your assistant or your booking agent at Interview Connections reached out and connected you for the interview, or if you pitched yourself, or if the podcaster invited you onto the show, that first time that you are connected with that podcast host over email or a guest, honestly, it works both ways, reach out and reply to that email promptly. Don’t let one, two, three days go by before you acknowledge that invitation to be on the show or acknowledge that the guest has said yes to be on your show.
Be prompt in your response. If you’re saying, “I’m super busy, Jessica. I don’t have time to respond to emails within 48 hours,” then guess what my advice is? Get an assistant who can be on top of your email because when you don’t email somebody back who has invited you to be on their show then it’s rude. Respond right away. That’s going to start the relationship off right.
Even if you don’t have time to actually go through your calendar and schedule the interview, just respond to that email right away. Thank them for inviting you on their show, and let them know that you are very busy and that you will schedule this by the end of the week or by the end of the day, what have you.
