Hello, I'm Douglas Burdett.
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" and by Forbes as one of "11 Smart Podcasts That Will Keep You In The Know."

I Want to Highlight You and Your Book
Your advice and opinions on modern marketing (and sales) will be the focus of the episode. 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. After your interview is published, I will promote it extensively via email and social media (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Pinterest).
Our Interview is Just the Beginning...
Occasionally, I speak in public, do podcast interviews 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.
A few things to keep in mind:
• 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.
• If the book is still in the works, an advance reading copy or galley is fine. If I think your book will be a hit with my listeners, I'll be in touch.
