How to Get Experts to Say Yes to an Interview With Me
Getting the rights to an interview is simple. All you do is ask for permission.
Think about Oprah Winfrey. You know, people are not coming on to the Oprah show just for their health.
They are coming on to the show so they can promote their new movie, their new book,or some cause that needs money.
When you contact an expert that you want to interview, and you invite them to be interviewed on your radio show or on your website, they are agreeing to that interview with you because there’s something in it for them.
And that reason is free promotion, publicity, and potential sales down the road.
They are trading their expertise and time for potential exposure to new clients that they would never be able to get too.
There are a lot of reasons why your guest want to have an interview with you.
If you’re just starting out, you may be thinking that you don’t have anything to offer. So, why they want to have an interview with me?”
There are many people that don’t have a chance to talk about their passion, and what they love, or what they’ve been doing all these years.
Not even there significant other, wife or husband will take time to listen. Just by asking and have the willingness to listen may be all the reason you need.
Don’t let your confidence stop you from asking.
Ask and you shall receive. You will not always get a yes. If you ask ten people and you get one person to say yes you’re doing fantastic.
By asking and inviting, you’ll never run out of experts to interview.
