Recording Radio Interviews
So, you’ve landed a radio interview huh? Well, congratulations on your achievement. I’m sure you worked hard to get the interview. I just need to tell you a few things that will help you in the future.
Be sure when you go in to the station, you ask if they will be recording the interview. If so, you want a copy burned on a disc or an email sent to you with the entire interview. Be prepared by taking an audio recorder with you just in case. Be sure to ask permission to record the interview though. I’ve never been told that I wasn’t allowed to record the interview, so try. The really awesome thing is, most cell phones now have built in recorders.
You want a copy of the interview to place on your website. Put this audio into a YouTube video as well. You need this interview, so you can start getting it circulating around the internet. This is another piece of content you can use to help people discover you!
Radio interviews give you credibility. Being heard on radio by family and friends almost gives you the local celebrity status. You become a local celebrity, and then build on that. Again, make sure that you obtain a copy of the interview from the station, or record it on your phone. You could also take the audio and upload it as a podcast on your website or itunes. Remember, you must think in terms of global proportions. You must become Omnipresent! A radio interview will instantly give you credibility as a reliable resource. Make sure you are scheduling interviews as often as possible, so you can continue to reach new people.
