Here are a few tips to ensure you have a great interview that captures your best side. Remember, your future client will be listening.
DO run through your story a couple times. You don’t need to memorize it. You’ll want to sound natural and not like you are reading (yes, listerners can tell the difference). This will help with the flow.
DO have your story in front of you in bullet point format. This way if you get nervous or forget your place and will be able to easily get back on track.
DO remember to smile as you fondly share your memorable date. Listerners can hear a smile, and it will put them at ease.
DON’T do any drugs, edibles, or drink alochol before your interview. I understand that you may be nervous, but any level of intoxication will be heard by the audience. You want to sound your absolute best!
DON’T drink caffeine at least 2 hours before your interview. Shakiness from caffeine will be picked up in audio. We want you to sound your best!
DON’T record in a bathroom or large rooms with a lot of hard surfaces. Echos are not sexy!
Things to Remember
If you get nervous, forget your place, etc…..just breathe
Your time slot is one hour. This will allow for a pre-interview and any technical issues that may arise. The episode itself should aim for 20-25 minutes tops. Please keep this in mind as you finalize the story you want to share.
