How to Get Free Publicity with Radio Interviews

Classic red phone handsetIf you have never done a media interview before, a good place to start is with radio interviews. You can get started as a guest expert, doing interviews over the telephone, from the convenience of your home or office. 

With phone interviews, you don’t have to worry about getting into a studio (although you may want that experience once you’re comfortable doing radio).  And unlike TV, you don’t have to be concerned about what to wear, how you look or where the camera is pointed. 

Plus opportunities in the talk radio world have expanded beyond traditional AM and FM to include shows on satellite radio and Internet radio and podcasts.  All are hungry for a steady stream of expert guests and interesting show topics.

Being interviewed on the radio and on podcasts can build your brand and attract more customers, clients, fans and followers. When you are a great radio guest, more hosts will want you on their show and more listeners will get to know you and be eager to buy your books, your products and your services. Many businesses have been built this way with quick phone interviews.

If you’re not getting interviewed on the radio, you’re missing a major FREE publicity strategy.

I often recommend the website as a way to connect with shows looking for good guests. It is an Internet booking service for free radio,podcast and television talk show guest expert interviews.

But while interviews are a terrific way to reach a targeted audience and make a name for yourself as an expert in your field, you will need to learn how to do radio publicity effectively:

  • Where to find the right shows for your niche
  • How to pitch show producers  and get them to book you
  • How to prepare to shine in your radio interviews
  • What NOT to say in an interview
  • Ways to get invited back
  • How to use social media to get MORE interviews
  • and more…

Radio Guest List is offering an exciting four-part training series, 4 audio seminars that show you how to get booked and leverage radio interviews.  Click here to find out more: The Easy Way to Get Radio Interviews  

The training is full of insider tips and tricks that give you a peak behind the curtain in the broadcasting industry.  You won’t find this information anywhere else for such a low price. It’s part of the kind of media training I do and it traditionally costs a lot more.

Don't delay. Get ready to step into the radio spotlight today.
