Distinguish Yourself From the Ordinary!
You’ve finished doing a radio interview, television interview, an interview on the street, at a bookstore,
or on internet radio, now what?
Before you leave the event, make sure you find out who arranged your interview with an email and snail mail
address. Put it on your cell phone as a note. Make sure you have all the details. Details matter. Why?
When you get home, you’re going to write a ‘Thank You Note.’
You heard correctly. In this age of technology, producers appreciate or the person who has arranged
your interview a written (hand written) note from the author. Just a simple ‘thank you’ for arranging the
interview, having coffee and doughnuts available when you most needed them. The note is done on plain
(beige) paper, although the many I’ve done are somewhat more decorative because I buy thank you notes
from museums. My one vanity.
After writing the note, make sure you start a list of ‘thank you note’ names with their addresses in an
excel file so you have these contacts on file. (more on this later).
