Here are some marketing strategies on how you can get business experts to accept an interview.
This tip won’t surprise you, but it’s really quite simple and something anyone can do. You just ask.
In your everyday life, you meet business experts all the time and you have the opportunity to say, “Hey, you’re really good at what you do. Would you agree to do an interview with me? That’s exactly what I did when I got the Mark Joiner interview. Mark was subscribed to one of my websites and I remember seeing his name come up and he signed up.
He emailed me and asked me a question about my site, then I emailed him back and said, “I know who you are. Nice to meet you”, I I answered his question, then he emailed me back and thanked me. I don’t know if I just blatantly said, “Hey, would you be willing to do an interview for my site?”
I interviewed him first, then he invited me to be interviewed for a membership site he was promoting at the time.
Here’s another example of how I managed to convince a business expert to accept an interview, it was with a self-editing expert named Mike Simonic. Mike is relatively unknown to most people. He was a million dollar editor of a special effects cookbook. He had a problem with one of my websites and he called me on the phone. He said, “Hey, I’m having trouble logging into your website, what’s going on?” I helped him and I said, “Hey, what are you doing?” He says, “Well, I’m an editor and I published this special effects cookbook.” It looked really cool and it sold a million copies. I mean a true millionaire self-publisher.
His idol was Ted Nicholas and he had been interviewed in many newspapers, and I asked him if he would do an interview and he let me interview him about his success.
That’s how I was able to get an interview with Bob Bly and Ben Settle. I remember I emailed each of them after seeing their newsletters. Before we even met and I said, “This guy is a good writer.” He looked like Gary Halbert.
But a simple email or phone call is all you need, and you can get access to any trading expert you want to interview.
