How to Apply for a Guest Appearance on GroomerTALK Radio℠
Since its inception in 1997
PetGroomer.com has increasingly become one of the primary communication
channels in the grooming industry. Each week thousands of groomers passively
review GroomerTALK (message board and chat) at PetGroomer.com, and a few
hundred actively partake in communication features posting and replying to
messages, or chatting. We have broken new ground with GroomerTALK Radio, the
industry’s first talk show for groomers. Our format is “on demand.” That
means we privately record talk shows by telephone interview; they are not
live. Listeners can choose any prerecorded program from the archive and
listen 24/7/365. It’s entirely free, and doesn’t require complicated
programming. We even provide a free radio player. Our plan is to store most
interviews for years to come creating one of the most unique libraries in
the grooming world. We do occasionally host Ask A Pro telephone conference
calls which are live and guest speakers answer questions from callers.
At present our focus is
to give priority interview scheduling to our sponsors of
PetGroomer.com, and then others. Many notable names in the grooming
industry have already come forward and we expect our archive to
become a “Who’s Who” for grooming, And isn’t that great that more
groomers will be listening, sharing and becoming more enlightened?
We have already started advertising GroomerTALK year round in leading publications and direct mail, and already PetGroomer.com is the most popular grooming website on the Internet since 1997. Imagine how our presence can support your promotion of your product, services and career.
It’s not all about being interviewed as a method to sell your product or service. Your general expertise and experience in the grooming industry, or producing products for groomers, is of great value. Of course, you will be allowed to promote your goods and services as well. During your interview you will have opportunities to provide your contact information including business telephone and/or website to listeners. Because we archive the shows for a long period of time, be sure to provide telephone and web addresses that you don’t intend on changing soon.
You must be a member of the grooming industry, or a company producing products and/or services for the grooming industry, such as a manufacturer or consultant that serves the industry. If you are a member of the pet industry outside pet grooming but believe you have information of interest to groomers, please contact us and let's talk about it.
All interviews are scheduled by appointment at a mutually agreed time. We conduct each interview by telephone. Here are very important guidelines.
• You will be
provided with a toll-free number to call-in if you are in the 50 US
states. Otherwise you will need to call our office 360-446-5348.
10 to 20 QUESTION OUTLINE FOR INTERVIEW
You know your expertise, product and/or service best. That’s why we ask that you provide us with a sampling of at least 10 questions you would like us to ask you during the interview. We will consider each question you provide, and we do reserve the right to add some additional questions on our own. However, our goal is not to surprise you. Before your interview recording begins we will advise you of some of the questions we have added. By preparing your interview questions we expect that you are ready to answer them, and this should put many of you more at ease with the interview process. Please have your questions ready when you request your interview recording appointment. Regarding questions, some people have short answers, some very long answers. We try to keep the show to a minimum of 30 minutes and no longer than 45. If 60 minutes or more, it's best to create 2 shows. So try answering your questions and timing yourself to see it you have provided us with enough questions for at least 30 minutes.
SEND IN YOUR VISUAL AIDS
If you have text or photo documents that support your interview, please send them to us at least a week before your interview. We will make them available at the GroomerTALK Radio page for our listeners. Email to email@example.com.
PROFILE & PHOTO
We ask that you provide a short biography of yourself, about 4 to 8 sentences which we will use to introduce you. We welcome but don’t require a photo of you.
