A recurring theme I am seeing in the feedback I get from our guest expert clients at Interview Connections is that podcast hosts are making it more and more difficult to schedule interviews. Here are the most common mistakes I’m seeing podcast hosts make when they are scheduling guests and what hosts should be doing instead. […]
The first and I mean FIRST thing you need to before you do anything else is thank the host. Show your appreciation for them opening up time on their show for you, and say “THANK YOU!” If your assistant schedules your interviews for you, please make sure they are expressing your gratitude to the host on your behalf. Having a gracious attitude will set the tone all your future interactions and for the interview itself. You could even send the host a free gift of one of your products in the mail. Just ask the host for their mailing address when you schedule! […]
There are a lot of reasons why people get into podcasting, either as a host or a guest expert. Some people are looking to grow their businesses, some people are trying to establish themselves as an expert in their field, and some people just enjoy the medium! But no matter what your purpose is for podcasting, there is one key strategy that will help you be successful – making CONNECTIONS.
Podcasting has become such a personal medium. It’s incredible platform for networking with amazing people. My team and I had an fantastic time at Podfest recently, and the feeling of the event was more like a summer camp than a conference! Why?

In this episode of Interview Connections TV, I reveal some of my mind set tricks that I learned in my previous job going door to door. If you interview guests on your podcast, you do not want to miss this great episode! […]
I work with a lot of entrepreneurs booking them as guest experts on other podcasts and there is a common misconception that many people have…
A lot of entrepreneurs think that when deciding on whether or not they should appear on a podcast as a guest, the most important thing they should consider is how many listeners the show has. Although appearing on a very succesful show is of course very beneficial for you, I encourage everyone not to use statistics as a deal breaker. […]
One question I get asked a lot from my clients at Interview Connections is How do I get my guests to promote their interviews? and a few people even said they are considering requiring the guest to do so. Hear me loud and clear: requiring your guests to promote your show is a very bad idea!
You have to take having interviewees on your podcast as seriously as if they were guests in your home.
