Remember every interview you give to a blog, magazine, or podcast is your chance to market yourself and your business.

At the end of last year we directed people to self-service Q&A google form links. We have a received a ton of responses, the problem is they are one liners. This is your opportunity to familiarize yourself with the public, yes and no answers won’t cut it.

So here is a brief guide on how to give a great interview.

1. Have your story ready; frame the story of your work, with key highlights, milestones, challenges and achievements. people love hearing stories about people’s journeys.

What prompted you to pursue your chosen field? What problem are you trying to solve and why is it important? It doesn’t matter how the question is asked to you, you can always fit this in.

2. Read or listen to past interviews done by your interviewer. Understand their target audience and frame your answers in a way that fits them. Knowing this will help you determine how much explanation you’ll need to give to make your work understandable.

3. Be Afrika gives you Q&A forms to fill. Sit with the questions, take your time to craft your answers. Think about what you want to communicate, you have the time. Give us all the information you can.
