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 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
