Expert Guest Welcome

Welcome to My Quest for the Best! We’re looking forward to your interview.

For your preparation, here are some of the questions Bill regularly asks. We also encourage you to send several questions of your own to us that will help Bill get to the heart of your expertise.

  1. Tell me how you got started in your business or current career.
  2. Describe your ideal client or audience.
  3. What problem do you solve for them?
  4. Give a recent example of success one of your clients had from working with you.
  5. What trends are you noticing from your conversations with other business leaders?
  6. What’s a common misunderstanding or myth that people outside your industry have and what’s the reality behind it?
  7. In the evolution of your business, what’s a milestone that you look back on and recognize that this particular engagement, project, or decision you made helped you make it to the next level? [It might be a first big client, a new hire, a move to a new office, your first radio interview, book, etc.]
  8. What are 2-3 things you do daily to stay on track?

Please consult the PDf files we sent for more details and for a list of the information we need from you in order to make your interview experience as smooth as possible (bio, headshot, book or product, phone number, etc.).

Structure and Audience

Bill’s guiding principle for these interviews is to have a brief conversation (20-30 minutes, generally) that gives his guests a chance to share their experiences and expertise and entice prospective buyers want to learn more about them, whether those buyers be corporate executives hiring a consultant, meeting planners hiring a speaker/facilitator, or individuals seeking the next great coach, book, product, or service. Our reach is the 9,000+ end-user range, and growing month to month. Other media follow the series and reach out to exceptional guests for additional exposure.

Bill will focus the interview questions on your observations, examples, and principles as an expert in your field. If you have a new book or project coming out, he will want to help you get exposure for that, of course; please be sure to share any relevant background materials with us.

Follow-up

Following the interview, we provide simple-to-use templates for promoting the interview through your website and social media channels. We also post a permanent profile page of each guest that includes links to your website, blog, and contact information, which adds immediate value and visibility. We select exceptional interviews to feature on the My Quest for the Best website and to receive additional promotion, including a widely distributed press release.
