How To Ask Someone To Be On Your Podcast or Blog

In this episode of the Mattie James Podcast, I talk about how to properly ask someone to be on their podcast or their blog. I get hit up in my DM’s so much with people asking me this question. Honestly, the approach of it is very lackluster, and sometimes, very unprofessional. I have a love/hate relationship with DMs. It is such a quick and direct way to connect with you guys, which I love, and IG stories has made the direct messaging pretty casual and approachable. However, there is a better way to do it. Since this is something me and my sister, Maya, talk about, I thought it would be good to share with you three ways to properly ask someone to be on your podcast or blog.

The 3 Best Platforms To Build An Online Brand

On this episode of the Mattie James Podcast, we are going to talk about platforms. We’re all seeing that this online thing is pretty lucrative, and if done right, can be long lasting. I want to talk about the best three because there are so many options. There are so many people on Instagram and Facebook, which whom I very impressed by, because so many people swear they don’t “use” Facebook, but are still on it. The question of a platform came from one of my Instagram followers and I thought this would make a great episode. Be sure to catch the show notes of this episode at mattiejames.com/ep22

The Mindset Necessary To Successfully Promote Your Blog or Business

In this episode of The Mattie James Podcast, we are going to talk about the mindset you have to have to promote a blog or business. I get this question often, so I wanted to talk about it here on the podcast. How do you get up the nerve to ask someone or your followers to go check out something you are trying to promote? It can feel weird, especially when you are first starting out. We've been taught were always told to be modest, not to talk about ourselves or bring attention to yourself. But when it comes to business, the goal is to bring attention to yourself. Be sure to check out the show notes for this episode over at mattiejames.com/ep21.

The Best Way To Find The Right Brand Contact

In this episode of the Mattie James podcast, I talk about the best ways to find the right brand contacts. I get this question at least 20 times a week. This is a kinda a tough question because it isn’t a one size fits all answer. There are so many different titles for brand contacts, so I can’t just tell you one specific title, or person, to reach out to. However, I can tell you the best way and the easiest way to find brand contacts, regardless of who the brand is. For show notes, visit mattiejames.com/ep20.

My Morning Routine Before Work

I’ve talked about my morning routine before but thought it would be fun to do an updated episode of what my morning routine before work looks like now. So much has changed. I have two small children now. My husband goes to a 9-5 job in the morning and I get the kids ready for school on my own. So, it’s just really important that I start my day off by myself, so that the tone is set for the day for the entire family. In this episode, I’ll share the five things I do in the morning.
