I’m Jessica Rhodes. I’m here to help you rock the podcast from both sides of the mic. Today’s episode is going to be a very simple lesson, that you should be ignoring certain comments, Facebook posts, and tweets and things like that. When you have a business or a product or a service or a podcast and you’re speaking to a very targeted audience and you have a very clear message, there are going to be people who don’t agree with you and there are going to be people that don’t need what you offer.
I offer guest booking at Interview Connections. That’s a very needed service which is why a lot of people are doing it and why a lot of people have interview shows, but there are also podcasters who don’t want to be pitched. There are people that don’t want to be requested for interviews. What I have seen, and I’ve had to develop a thick skin, is there are people that really don’t like being pitched… and it bothers them. If you have a good product or service it’s going to be very needed to some people and it’s going to be very not-needed by other people. You want to wildly attract your target audience and repel the people that you are not meant to work with.
Just remember, if there are people that don’t like what you’re doing, that’s okay as long as there are people that do like what you’re doing. If nobody likes what you’re doing, then you maybe want to reconsider it, but if you do have a good audience and you do have people that love what you’re doing, keep it up and ignore the people that aren’t your target market.
I am Jessica Rhodes, I’m here to help you rock the podcast from both sides of the mic. We will see you next Tuesday on another episode of Interview Connections TV.
