Where it all began

At it's heart, Interview Valet is an Inbound Marketing Agency focused on using podcast interviews as the content to drive your online sales and marketing engine.

In 2014 when we realized that blogs weren't working as they had been, we hypothesized that targeted interviews on established podcasts could be used much like guest blogging.

The goal of the podcast guest strategy was to:

  • Tap into an existing audience
  • Share in the trust and authority of the host
  • Drive back traffic and sales ready leads

The results exceed our wildest dreams:

  • Traffic from a single interview was immediate and has continued for years​
  • Visitors converted to leads over 25 times better than blogs
  • Natural back-links from the podcast provided valuable SEO trust signals

Over the next two years, we tested, optimized and validated the process to what we currently use with all of our clients

Just do everything for me but the speaking

In 2015 we began teaching the system. While everyone called it genius, our best clients were busy business owners: Authors, speakers, business owners.  They wanted to be the guest and have us do the rest.

As one client pleaded "Sinatra only sang"  Others did the rest of the important behind the scenes work.  He wanted to be the guest, and have us do all the rest:

  • Finding the perfect shows
  • Scheduling and coordination
  • Preparing the guest for each interview
  • Making the custom welcome page for each interview
  • Promoting the interview on social media

In the winter of 2015 beta testing of the concierge level white glove service known as Interview Valet began. In the Spring of 2016, it was fully launched to the joy of clients and podcasters alike
