Remote Interview (call-in) Special Instructions
If your interview is planned using digital call-in technology, you will need a microphone. Details below. Call-in sessions are pretty easy; no need to even dress up. (Really, I’ve had people right from a gym session show up with messy hair and sweats on!) We do use the video to be friendly, but only record the audio.
1. Headset: Headsets work best for an interview because we need high quality sound for broadcast.
If you have a computer or gaming headset it should work fine. A USB head set works well for today’s computers. Logitech has several excellent models for a low price on Amazon.
A laptop built-in microphone is very noisy, picks up too much room sound and makes a low quality recording. The main issue is to have a mic separate from the computer and dedicated to you. So you pros with your Blue Yeti, Heil-PR40, and other serious mics. We’re good..
2. Send us your Skype user name and we will send you an invite for the session. If you don’t have a Skype account, they are free at skype.com. Great way to connect to the world for free. If you have a Google+ account, please let us know that, too. We’re in the process of switching to Google+ for interviews.
Day of Interview
1. The interview period lasts an hour, occasionally a bit longer. Interviews are scheduled back to back so we normally finish up on time.
2. The hour starts with checking in and sound setup. Next we’ll review the interview topics and pacing. Finally, the actual interview time is 30 minutes. But, the truth is we begin having fun right away and start exploring all sorts of new topics which is why we plan an hour with you.
3. Be ready with any follow up contacts or information you want to share with the listeners. This is not required, but if you want interested people to contact you, here is your chance. You can provide links, email, facebook, or phone. Your choice entirely.
4. Relax – Everyone has a great time.
After the Interview
1. When the edited interview is ready, we’ll provide you with the public link.
2. We’ll also send you a copy of the edited, completed interview. You can do whatever you wish with the recording. Sell it, give it away, include it in a course, transcribe it, show it to your friends and family, use it to help you get a job, a client or sell a book. That’s what we might do with it, too.
The only thing you can’t do, without asking us first, is to broadcast the interview since that’s our intent for the interview. That’s our job, after all.
3. Hope you send people to the interview link. We’d love for you to comment and respond to other’s comments on the post page.
Thanks again for your thoughts, stories and inspiration for so many.Steve
