Podcast Guest Info
Thank you so much for booking in an interview. I’m really looking forward to it.
If you could spare 60 minutes, that would be amazing as then we could create 2-3 X15-20 minute segments focussed around particular topic areas.
This gives you and your company more exposure.
Video interview tips
Please note: I generally do a video interview, as I said, which I then have put on youtube and iTunes (as a Video podcast), and then an audio podcast (on iTunes) and blog post are created from that.
So that gives you 4 forms of exposure to audience.
You don’t have to have professional lighting or makeup, but whatever you can do to give bright lighting and a clean background is helpful.
I usually use Google Hangouts on Air – I’ll set that up and then send over a link to you (via Skype) 5-15 minutes before our scheduled recording time.
On the audio side, if you can use USB headset, you will get better quality than with a built-in laptop audio or phone audio. The best thing of all is a USB mic. However, if you are using your phone then bud earphones are good enough.
If you are more comfortable with a pre-prepared list of Qs, I’m happy to do that but please email me at least 48 hours before recording.
I often feel these days that the conversation flows just as well without them. It’s really up to you.
You will get quite a few reminders of the podcast date and time via the ScheduleOnce system.
Can you be sure that on the day of the podcast interview, you have Skype available for about an hour before the recording? I will use that to do last minute communication and to send over the Google Hangouts Link.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me anything at firstname.lastname@example.org; however I generally check that once a day max. So for quick responses, please Skype me at michaelmaestro2010.
Look forward to talking to you in person!
