My First Interview With a JV Broker (Thrilling & Nerve Wrecking)

by 6 comments

I just want to share a thrilling experience I have.

Now is Singapore time 3am.

I did an interview with Reed Floren at 2am and it is my very first interview of a guru.

It was about 45 mins long.

Initially he asked him it is too late for me. But I am committed to this interview and I do whatever it takes to get it done.

I have some learning points which I want to share.

Some tips if you want to do an interview.
1. Fit the interviewee schedule

2. Be polite and respectful and maintain your coolness (I was really nervous as it was my first time and I did stammer abit. I sounded stiff too.)

3. Do your homework on finding out his success story and how he started off his business

4. Ask him what url which he wants to be promoted in the interview ( I repeated 3 times, start, mid and end of interview)

5. Praise and compliment his success (personally I am his student and I gave some credible testimonial)

- Always listen and ask relevant questions
- Have the attitude of showing genuine interest in the interviewee

6. 1 week before interview, do send him your questions to vet though

7. 2 days before interview, drop a gentle reminder to his email about the interview

8. Get his msn or skype so that you can be in touch.

9. Drop him a msn or skype message 5 mins before the interview

10. Thank him for his time after the interview

11. Have a follow up email what help he needs (if he needs you to get the mp3 edited or transcription done)

12. Follow up again whenever necessary

      Nice work John.

      Takes me back to my first "Guru" interview back in 2005.

      I was able to land Willie Crawford. Talk about gracious..

      Willie wrote the questions, wrote his intro, wrote the disclaimer, we used his call-in line, he emailed his list to join us, he had the audio edited and he had it transcribed.

      I simply followed his script.

      BTW - Reed's a good guy too.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.
