What Food Network Star Taught Me About How to Pitch

I am Jessica Rhodes. I’m here to help you rock the podcast from both sides of the mic.

A couple years ago, I got really into the show “Food Network Star”, and one thing I learned on that show about describing your food is very applicable to podcasting and pitching guests and asking guests to be on your show and talking about your show.

The big tip that I learned on that show is that you shouldn’t use subjective language or subjective words when describing your show, when describing your client. If you’re booking a client on a podcast, things like, “They’re so entertaining. They’re so fun. They’re so smart. They’re such a great guest.” Obviously you think they’re a great guest. Obviously you think your show is amazing, but to someone that you’re trying to sell and someone that you’re trying to convince, you don’t want to use words that are your opinion, because obviously you think that you’re great and your client is great, et cetera. Use words that are objective, that are descriptive, and factual, no matter what your opinion is.

I hope that helps when you’re booking your clients for interviews, when you’re booking yourself for interviews. That’s something that we talk a lot about at Interview Connections when we’re booking our clients is really just stating facts that are convincing and not just subjective.
