Do you interview people on your podcast or have guests? There are some things you can do to make the whole experience great for you and great for them. These are simple things that if you add them to your processes can help produce great interviews!
Here are a few ways to be a great podcast guest host:
- Use a scheduler. We use setmore but calendly or acuity scheduling are great options. This will help cut down on the emailing back and forth and make it easy for you to set a schedule for recording.
- Create recording instructions. A pdf is a great way to go. Include what they need on their end before they come on your podcast.
- Make them feel comfortable. When you hop on your call, get to know them first, loosen things up and make them comfortable before you dive in.
- Follow up with a Thank You. Be sure to say thank you and send ways for your guests to share your podcast.
And don’t be afraid to go after those dream guests. You never know who will say yes! So shoot for the moon and be a great podcast guest host.
