Attention: Podcasters who want to make a difference with their message
Do you have interviews that you’re just too embarrassed to publish because the conversation was awkward, you struggled to build rapport with the guest, and you felt like you were pulling teeth?
You’re not alone.
Hi, I’m Annemarie Cross – The Podcasting Queen. Award-winning Podcast Host and Producer.
I remember with one of the guests on my very first podcast back in 2008, my co-host asked a question and 20 minutes later we still couldn’t get a word in edgeways.
Thank goodness over the last 10 plus years and interviewing well over 1,000 guests, hosting round tables, panel interviews, virtually and in-person – I’ve learned lots of tips and techniques that have enabled me to interview and produce a stellar show – even when interviewing the most difficult of guests.
And I’ve put some of those tips and techniques in this Interviewing With Purpose Minitraining.
Mindset – The Key to Success
In Video 1 of this mini-training I’ll be covering Mindset, which is the key to a successful interview.
Neglect this step and you could stumble throughout your entire interview even if you have a great guest.
What Interviewer Style Are You?
People come for the content of your show, however they return for the host.
Understand some of the unique characteristics and approach you bring to your interviews so you can create an environment and experience your ideal client and audience member appreciates and values – so they’ll come back.
How To Handle Three Most Common Difficult Guests
In Video 3 I’ll cover three of the most difficult of guests, which many podcast hosts struggle with, including:
- The Guest who won’t stop talking;
- The Guest who answers with two syllables;
- The Guest who is overwhelming with jargon and terminologies you know is going to confuse people.
