2. Save Time
When you hire a podcast booking agency like Interview Connections, you are benefiting from the years of training our staff has in booking guest experts on top podcasts. Hiring an in house employee or virtual assistant to book you on podcasts will cost you a lot of time and money because you’ll need to spend time training and managing them or you’ll need to invest in someone else on your team to train and manage them.
When you hire an agency to get booked on podcasts, you never have to worry about the headaches that come with staff turnover! Booking agencies like Interview Connections keep excellent records of all clients so you’ll always get great interviews regardless of employee turnover at your business or the agency.
4. Specialized Expertise
Pitching podcasters requires a very specific approach. A templated, scripted pitch will not cut it and unfortunately that’s what podcasters are getting from most in house team members who are pitching their bosses. Booking agencies know what podcasters want to see in a guest expert and they know how to write a pitch that gets a yes!
Successful, in demand guest experts don’t try to cut corners or save a few bucks by having an assistant get them booked. By hiring a leading booking agency to represent you as a guest expert, you will be positioned in a way that has hosts excited to meet you and feature you to their audience.
One of the biggest reasons to hire an agency to represent you is for the opportunity to strategize on who your target audience is and what interview topics and questions will get you booked on the right podcasts for you. When pitching podcast hosts, a lot of assistants and employees make the mistake of focusing on what the guest’s business sells and what the guest wants to promote. Podcast booking agencies understand that a successful pitch focuses on what value the podcast’s listeners will get from hearing the interview
