Being a Guest on the Online Fraud Prevention Podcast: Everything You Need to Know

About the Show

The Online Fraud Prevention Podcast serves buyers of fraud prevention solutions. Each features an interview with a specific expert who can help the audience to make better buying decisions and reduce fraud at their organizations more effectively.

Your Commitment

If you’re interested in being a guest on the Online Fraud Prevention Podcast, all you have to do is:

  1. Say yes!
  2. Book a time to record
  3. Fill out a short form
  4. Record the episode (about 45 minutes)

Once the show is published, I’ll notify you that it’s live, send you the link to the episode, and would greatly appreciate your sharing it via your email list, social media, or just some old-fashioned 1:1 recommendations. Whatever you’d like. It’s not a requirement, but is certainly appreciated.
I record episodes via Zoom remotely, so you don’t have to leave your office. Just make sure you’re in a quiet area with no distractions. I highly recommend using at least a set of headphones, a headset, or preferably a decent USB microphone.
If you have a webcam, it’d be great to see each other! I won’t publish the video, but it’s nice to chat face-to-face, albeit virtually. Each episode is published 3–6 weeks after recording, depending on the backlog of current episodes.

What’s the format of the show?

The Online Fraud Prevention Podcast is an interview show between the host, Mike Russell, and just one guest. Interviews typically last 30 minutes, but I ask you to commit to 45 minutes so that we aren’t rushed. The interview will focus on the intersection of current events in the online fraud prevention space and your professional perspective.

When do you record?

I record on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings (U.S. Pacific time). You’re free to book as far out into the future as the calendar will let you. You are, like me, subject to our benevolent calendar-robot overlords.

Do I need to pay to be a guest?

Nope, you don’t pay anything! All you have to do is allocate 45 minutes for recording, and 5-10 minutes to fill out the pre-interview form.

I already have enough to do…why add this to my plate?

Maybe it isn’t right for you?!? If you feel you don’t want additional press opportunities and this is a commitment you’re not excited about, please don’t do it. If you’d like to pay it forward by helping others with your perspective, I’d love to interview you.

What should I talk about?

I welcome your suggestions. I’ll prepare some questions based on what I find in the news. I’m pretty good at making my guests sound amazing. Topics of conversation might include:

  • Your perspective on industry news
  • Industry trends affecting your company
  • Correcting misperceptions in the market
  • A current campaign at your company

I have a different question.

No worries, I’m happy to answer anything that’s on your mind. Just reply to the email that brought you here, or email mike [at] pivotalwriting [dot] com.
