How to Get an Interview without the Interview

I’m putting together lots of Resource Guides and material for this newsletter by leveraging (read that as: ripping off?) more of those podcasting pros I mentioned.

And here’s a good one:

The Podcasters Roundtable with Ray Ortega

Specifically, here is one tip from Roundtable discussion #30 that talks about growing your audience with great podcast content:

Interviews are awesome content for podcasts. But…they can be a bit tricky to pull off if you are inexperienced!

Here’s the tip:

“How to Do an Interview…WITHOUT the INTERVIEW”

Watch this Roundtable discussion starting at the 39:00 minute mark (click the graphic or link below to be taken right there):


This interesting content idea basically states:

Talk about influencers in your niche (podcast, blog, or video)…and then…let them know you talked about them!

A podcaster named Steve Stewart talked about a top pro in his niche (podcasting): Award-winning podcaster John Lee Dumas (you might recognize him as one of the case studies in the Audello training!).

The result has become so famous that it’s actually called: The John Lee Dumas Effect

The original post for the John Lee Dumas Effect can be found HERE:

Step 1: Write or podcast about an influencer like Steve did here:

The John Lee Dumas Effect -2

Step 2: Get the attention and awesome “audience growing” effect of a response to your content!


Pretty sweet, eh?

Gee…maybe I should reach out to Ray Ortega and maybe Mr. Dumas and let them know I am talking about them? Right? ;-)


That’s it for Issue # 1 of this Podcasting for Screencasters Newsletter.
