How We Record an Episode

  1. I am not currently producing this podcast
  2. Review past episodes at thescottking.com/cmo-podcast
  3. Review the questions below. I’ll customize them based on your speaking topic and expertise.

Thanks for being a part of the sales and marketing podcast as an expert contributor. I want this to be a great experience for us both and for our audience. Here are a few tips on how we will conduct the interview.

The podcast provides a high-level view to listeners into how sales and marketing leaders grow their businesses and build their brands. Each week there will be an episode where you are the expert on generating new business, delighting customers and breaking through all of the digital noise. Example topics can include:

  • Storytelling
  • Sales Effectiveness
  • Sales and Marketing Alignment
  • Sales and Marketing Operations
  • Branding
  • Technology and Tools
  • Growth Mindset
  • Influencer Marketing
  • Data Driven Decisions
  • Customer / Community Engagement
  • Your Big Idea (this works best)


The goals for the podcast are to provide sales and marketing leaders with real-world tips and advice. Your advice and expertise will provide insight to what is and isn’t working to those trying to market their own products, services or looking to enhance their careers.

Who is the Audience?

The audience is mid to senior-level sales and marketing leaders or those that want to move up in sales and marketing.

Before We Record

  1. Make sure you have earphones and a microphone for your computer. Most have internal microphones but external mics perform much better. The standard Apple earbuds work OK but do have issues with the mic rubbing on your face.
  2. Find a quiet place to perform the recording. Background noise will be picked up in the recording (people talking, sirens, office noise, outside noise, air conditioners, TVs, etc.).
  3. We’ll prep and discuss talking points before we begin recording.
  4. Relax.
  5. Record Interview.
