Radio Talk Show Tip

Filed under: Radio Talk Show Tips — Larry James @ 7:00 am

Weave the name of your book into the conversation so it sounds like it is a necessary part of the conversation. Do not say, “As I said in my book. . .” without mentioning the title. This takes some practice to keep from sounding like your only intention is to promote.

talkshowRadio producers and hosts love to interviews guests who know how to be promotional, that is, mention the name of their book without sounding like a commercial. Practice using the name of your book as if it were a person not a thing to promote.

When you say “in my book” you may come off as a pushy author. Instead, use the title of your book and give some helpful tips. You are there to teach, and the more you teach the more the listening audience will want to buy your book. Teach the audience at least several things that will make their life better.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the host gives your Website (or you throw it in as you’re saying goodbye) and send the audience there not to “buy” your book but to get a “freebie” from your Website.
