Be a Guest on The Marketing Book Podcast!
Are you looking for a way to increase awareness of your book? Are you the type of person who believes in helping others by openly sharing your expertise?
If so, you should be a guest on The Marketing Book Podcast!
Being a guest on The Marketing Book Podcast will give you exposure to an audience of business owners and marketing and sales professionals who can benefit from reading your book and learning more about you.
"Podcasts were far and away the leader in how people who bought our book said they heard about it, despite the podcast audiences not being enormous.”
–Gabriel Weinberg, CEO and Co-Founder of DuckDuckGo and co-author of "Traction: How Any Startup Can Achieve Explosive Customer Growth."
Here's what Pamela Wilson, author of "Master Content Marketing" said in her newsletter about her experience being a guest on The Marketing Book Podcast.
Hi - I'm Douglas Burdett and I genuinely appreciate your interest in being a guest on The Marketing Book Podcast, which was named by LinkedIn as one of "10 Podcasts that Will Make You a Better Marketer."
You and your book are what I want to highlight, especially your advice and opinions on modern marketing (and sales). During our interview, I will ask about the key ideas and actionable insights from your book, with the goal of giving the listener as much practical advice as possible.
Several authors have been surprised that I actually read their books before interviewing them. I mention that because I enjoy making sure each interview is a great listening experience for my growing audience of people who want to learn more about books like yours.
But I want your 45-minute time investment to be worth your while as well.
And, you will be added to this growing Twitter list of Marketing Book Podcast guests...
But wait - there's more! The morning your episode goes live, I will publish a guest post about your book and our interivew on Marketing Insider Group. Michael Brenner's Marketing Insider Group site is one of the most popular marketing websites (and one of my favorites).
And occasionally, I speak or write about the books that have been featured on The Marketing Book Podcast. Here's a post I did for Oracle Marketing Cloud's Modern Marketing Blog.
And, as a special "thank you" I will produce a video review of your book that will be posted on Amazon and YouTube. (Here's one I did for Dorie Clark's book, Stand Out.)
If you'd like a copy of the video for your own website, YouTube channel or other promotional uses, I'll be happy to provide you a file.
Similarly, if you would like to embed your interview on your site, I can provide you with the HTML code for your interview on a player like this one.
Congratulations on your book!
I tend to feature new books from major publishers and/or bestselling authors that have actionable marketing (and sales) insights, tips, tactics and resources. Self-published books are rarely featured.
Books do not have to be hot off the presses. If it’s a great book, I want to share it with my listeners regardless of when it was published.
Have you not yet launched your book? Even better! If your book is a fit for the podcast and you can get me a preview copy a couple of months before the official launch, we will publish your interview on the Friday of your book launch week (I publish every Friday), unless I've already promised the date to another author. Otherwise, there is usually a 1-3 month wait to get on the interview schedule.
Here's how to get me your book for consideration. Please send a printed copy to Douglas Burdett c/o Artillery, 1709 Colley Ave, Suite 308, Norfolk VA 23517. If the book is still in the works, an advance reading copy or galley is fine.
Your book doesn’t have to be available for purchase in retail bookstores, but I’d like my listeners to be able to buy it online, so ideally you’ll be set up on Amazon or some other online retailer.
Let's Talk!To get the process rolling, please share some information below and I’ll be in touch!
