Members Only Weekly Review · August 13, 2022 · #606
You're funny, charming, interesting. And the LAST thing you want to do is bore people, right?
Especially when you're the featured guest on a podcast! 🎙️
But sadly, too many small business owners show up for their moment in the spotlight (on the mic) UNprepared to take full advantage of the opportunity.
So they don't get their important messages across. They don't get a positive response from the listening audience. And they don't bring their sparkling personality to deliver the interview they imagined.
Are you hoping to get publicity by being interviewed on podcasts? It's a great idea because it's fun, easy, and effective!
Do you want to position yourself as a rock star expert, get leads, or tell your story in a way that works? OF COURSE you do!
Good news: This NEW webinar explains how to achieve your goals with style and grace.
The last time I offered a webinar on podcasts, I explained how to get booked, and where to find the podcasts (and tons more!).
In this helpful webinar, you will discover what to say during your interview PLUS:
What makes a great interview & how to be fascinating without stretching the truth
The 7 questions you will probably be asked & how to deliver listenable answers
How to deal with those unexpected, random, or startling (gotcha) questions gracefully
What to do before, during, & after your interview to make it great

Big News! All members are getting an upgrade as of October 1. This includes YOU.
As of October 1, your Insider membership includes:
One new monthly marketing strategies webinar. You get the live experience, video replay, notes, slides, and written transcript. Boom!
Blah blah blah! OK, you already had that; so, what else is new?
One new monthly marketing Q&A session. With specific topics for each session so you know what we're talking about. And you can decide if you want to attend to ask questions, contribute ideas, or just lurk.
Wait, what?!? A whole new topic-specific Q&A for ALL members? Now's that's cool!
One new monthly tool demo of one of my many favorite tools. We're talkin' live demos of Canva, Lumen5, and more. When possible, I'll demo member projects.
Tool demo, as in showing-and-telling-how-it-works? Tips and secret hacks? Yuh huh! I'm gonna show you how I use my fave marketing tools so that you can use them easily, too. And we might even be working on one of your projects. 🤩
BEST NEWS: All this is 100% included in your monthly $10 membership dues!
Fair warning: New members (as of October 1, 2022) will pay $25/month for this membership. Your rate is locked in as long as your membership is current. Lapsed or returning members after 10/1/22 are not eligible for the special rate of $10 that you have.

Insider membership remains at $10/month for all members enrolled as of September 30, 2022.
Insider+Plus membership level is being retired as of September 30, 2022. All current Insider+Plus members will be converted to Insider on October 1.
What stays the same:
