What is Your Interview Message?

Another in a series of interview tips for authors.

Before you even pitch yourself as a guest to be interviewed, know what your objectives are.

Do you want listeners to buy your book? Buy a service you’re offering? Subscribe to your newsletter? Attend an event?

  • Prepare your main message with that objective in mind.
  • Prepare three key points to deliver that main message.
