Getting Guests and Introductions
What I’m looking for guestwise is a person people don’t know about and that are getting real-life results. Now how do I find those people? Well, TechCrunch, Hacker News, that’s where a lot of interesting people are. I asked friends who do you think are really interesting that I don’t know or who do you know that’s interesting that most people don’t know. I want to find these kind of people.
Now there’s Rapportive. It’s a Gmail extension. You can use it to guess what a person’s email address might be. This works well for someone who is really hard to get in touch with or you’re not connected to. You can type it into Rapportive and their profile will show up.
The best way though is an endorsement from someone they already know or an introduction.
Spencer also mentions one time landing a guest after giving high-value feedback. He had followed the advice given by the guest and followed up detailing what he had accomplished following the tips from the guest. The guest was flattered and agreed to do the show. If you are specific letting people know how they helped you and you genuinely want to help them, they’re totally game for it.
