I got to be on PR Week’s podcast last week! It was such a cool experience!
I’ll tell you how that came about. I met Steve, the Editor-in-Chief of PR Week, at a Cision seminar I attended last month. Cision is a PR and social software company (and I manage the social media for a PR company, so that’s why I was there).
Steve was one of the panelists who spoke, and I really liked some of his observations and expert insights. I spotted him by the bar after Cision’s presentation and boldly decided to introduce myself and tell him how great I thought he was on the panel. Steve was gracious and kind to me, and we had a very animated conversation about social media and influencer marketing. It’s a subject I know a lot about on account I am addicted to it, and I get pretty passionate. After a good half-hour of talking, Steve invited me to be on his podcast. This was never my goal when I began speaking to him, but naturally I squealed with delight and accepted immediately.
If you haven't seen it already, please enjoy it here (the other gent is "Franktastic" Frank):
So here are my take-aways if you want to get invited onto podcasts or the like:
