AskPat Podcast: Guidelines for Submitting a Question
How to Contribute to AskPat
If you decide to submit a question for the show—and I really hope you do—you’ll need to abide by a few common sense guidelines. That way everyone wins.
On the AskPat Podcast, I answer your questions about starting and running an online business. To qualify for the show, questions need to follow these rules:
- Please keep your question to one minute in length. If it goes a little over, that’s fine, but please keep it concise and to the point.
- If you have a website and URL, you’re allowed to share it only once during the recording. For example: “Hi, my name is Jane Doe A Deer. I have a blog called Deer Jane’s at DeerJanes.com. My question is . . .”
- Spammy, disrespectful, or deeply private questions will not be considered for the podcast. Please keep it polite, non-spammy, and business-focused. Thanks!
To leave a question, all you need is an Internet connection and microphone (headphone mics work too). Don’t worry about your microphone’s quality—your job is to ask a great question! Speakpipe.com, the web service we use to capture your message, does the rest. It’s pretty cool.
I get a lot of questions for AskPat, which I love! Because of this volume, I won’t be able to answer every question. Submitting a qualified question is no guarantee that it will be featured on the podcast. I’ll get to as many qualified questions as I can, but if your question is similar to (or the same as) one we’ve already addressed, or if it doesn’t fit with the vibe of the show, then I’ll have to skip it. Thanks for understanding, and thanks for listening.
