Below is a list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding Intervew MatchUp (IMU).
Let’s get started shall we?
Q: What is a Host?
A1: A host can be defined as anyone who creates any kind of written (Newspaper, Magazine, blog ect.), audio (Radio, Podcast) or video (TV, Youtube, Vlog) interview.
A2: Someone needing quotes for press releases can also benefit from IMU as well as summit leaders and those compiling knowledge through the work of other people.
Q: I have found through the experience of having my own podcasts that the lions share of the work is in the searching out and screening of guests. I would sift through mountains of webpages and reach out to crowds of people each week to find someone with content that fit with the theme of my show that was also interested in being on my show. And then there was always the risk of having a guest who ran away with the show or who barely talked at all, can IMU help me?.
A: Yes, here at IMU, we have worked to take much of the research, guess work and frustration out of the process. And ultimately – in the future – we hope to make reviews from previous interviewers available. This will allow you to get the highest quality content for your show with the least amount of effort. It might even be fun too! (Check out a short video at the bottom about how to contact people of interest.)
Q: How do I find a Guest at IMU?
A: All you need to do is fill out the very simple profile, add some show info, a summary and some keywords. The keywords are important because it will allow potential Studio Guests to reach out to you which reduces your work even more. You can also easily browse for Guests by using Your own keywords. Pretty cool eh?
Q: What is a Studio Guest?
A: A Studio Guest can be anyone. Authors, musicians, politicians, artists, actors, sports personalities, inventors, hobbyists, reviewers, facilatators, persuaders, and so much more. Are you on fire? Do you have something to talk about? Something to share? Then IMU will serve you!
Q: How can I benefit from the IMU service?
A: For the first time in history, you have access to any number of show hosts. Marketing yourself has become easy with very little time involved. If you want to sit back and wait for someone to contact you, you can but why not market yourself and your offering directly.
