I have been involved in podcasting from the beginning, and on both sides of the mic. In fact, I believe podcasting has been instrumental in building the Duct Tape Marketing brand to what it is today. Getting interviewed on podcasts is a huge opportunity for you, and perhaps the best way to bootstrap your way to your own influence and authority. The Duct Tape Marketing Podcast gets pitches every day, directly from individuals and podcast booking agencies, as well as from virtual assistants working on behalf of third parties. Most of them are doing it wrong. We created Podcast Bookers to help you do it right.
