  Suggestions for a good interview Business in Motion movers and shakers in business reveal their secrets, lessons, mistakes and triumphs

If you are a pro at radio interviews there is no need to read this. If you would like some tips then have a look.

Arrive early.
Drink water.
Visit the washroom.
Breathe – regularly.
Hum before you go on to loosen your vocal chords.
Mentally prepare for the questions and theme.
Rehearse some phrases and anecdotes that you want to use.
Ask the host for the overall theme of the show – positive or negative.
Watch the host for clues on your use of time.
Ask the host if you can mention your website or phone number – then write it down for the host.
Mention the name of the host, program and station during your interview.
If you don’t understand the question – say that. And ask the host to repeat.
If you get a question that you need to think about – talk while you are thinking. Don’t leave dead air.
Before you go on the air, be clear on the message that you want to get across. Then be sure to include that message in your answers.

Don’t Say

Here are a few phrases that don’t work well.

“As I said before” or “As I said earlier”. When you say this, people tune out because they heard it before. You sound like a scolding parent. Instead, say what you want to say.

“As we talked about earlier”. The audience doesn’t know what we talked about earlier.

“Thank you for having me” That is a dumb phrase. Think about the possible images that phrase might ignite. Instead say, “Thanks for having me on the show” “Thank you for this opportunity” “My pleasure to talk to you today”
