Guest Interviews are an excellent way to build your Brand, your expertise and can help you sell your books, products, and services.
Interviews can range from a few minutes to an hour or more.
InterviewGuestsDirectory.com is a site aimed at matching reporters, writers, radio and talk show hosts with content experts.
If you are looking for experts, celebrities or authors to interview this is a great place to find them There are over 50 categories, which makes it easier to find guests in your niche. The directory listings are FREE for anyone looking to radio or TV interviews, podcasts or online and print article interviews.
IF you ARE a subject matter expert, celebrity or author and want to be interviewed, you need to register on the site. This is where they make their money … because after a free 30-day trial listing, you will have to pay to stay listed in the directory.
This is a great fit if you have a non-fiction subject matter expertise. Less of a fit if you write fiction books.
As an author, I have done dozens of print interviews. IF you can convince the writer to add: your name, your book name or even your website into the article, you are off and running. Those mentions and links can lead to sales.
BE sure to ASK (or demand) a link, because if you don’t all they might do is mention your name. Sure readers or listeners can Google you, but that requires a step they may not be willing to take. Ask for a link!
I’ve also done hundreds of radio interviews … where it is easy (with a bit of practice) to squeeze in the relevant information, whether the interviewer asks or not!
The Interview Guests Directory site is offering a FREE listing for 30 days. After that listings cost $5.95/month for text only and $7.95/month including book cover or photo. They also have a pile of other add on services.
Check it out, and give it a try for 30 days … even one interview can produce great results.
