Congratulations – You’re Booked…

Here’s What You Need to Do Now

Hi, I’m Shida Osman, show host for The Podcast Show. I’m here to make sure everything works, including audio, timing etc.

I have included my top tips for you to make it a great experience (see below). If you have any questions before your recording, please email me shida@pitch.sg

(1) CONNECT ON SKYPE FIRST

  • This will be an AUDIO only recording
  • We record via Skype – please be online at least 5 minutes before the show recording time
  • You should get a request from us (but sometimes we can’t find you on Skype)
  • Please add Shida Osman to your skype now – this will prevent any false starts!

(2) HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO MAKE YOU SOUND AWESOME

  • Find a quiet space (avoid offices, Starbucks, airports, etc.)
  • Use WiFi or fixed line internet (we don’t record on mobile phones as mobile can drop out regularly)
  • Best audio set up is laptop + microphone/headset
  • Try to avoid laptop using the internal microphone (you’ll sound weak + distant)

(3) WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO TALK ABOUT?

  • We don’t send questions beforehand – listeners today don’t want rehearsed Q&A, they want real conversation. They want everything you can’t get on your website. The backstory.
  • Have fun, it’s going to be informative and conversational
  • I will ask you questions about the tech scene as well as your background and how you got involved with the scene in your region.
  • Listeners want to hear about your story (rather than your product or service). Your story is the best sales message out there
  • Don’t worry about making mistakes, it makes you sound more human!

(4) AFTER THE RECORDING

  • We’ll post-produce the show and push it out to iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud etc
  • We will ask you for a referral for a future guest. Who else like you has a cool story to share on the show? We’d love to grow by referral, meaning we can ensure quality guests week in week out.
  • I’ll notify you when the show goes live so you can share across your social media

(5) PS… WANT MORE PEOPLE TO HEAR YOUR STORY?

  • Your show will go out on iTunes, Spotify, Soundcloud when it’s published. That means a whole market of podcast listeners will be ready to discover you and your story.
  • Subscribe to The Podcast Show on soundcloud to help get your show out there (iTunes is more likely to feature popular shows)
