How To Ask Someone To Be On Your Podcast or Blog

3/15/2019
More
In this episode of the Mattie James Podcast, I talk about how to properly ask someone to be on their podcast or their blog. I get hit up in my DM’s so much with people asking me this question. Honestly, the approach of it is very lackluster, and sometimes, very unprofessional. I have a love/hate relationship with DMs. It is such a quick and direct way to connect with you guys, which I love, and IG stories has made the direct messaging pretty casual and approachable.

In this episode of the Mattie James podcast, I talk about the best ways to find the right brand contacts. I get this question at least 20 times a week.
