If the interviewer wants to go beyond the surface and find out why people act or think the way they do, it is crucial to also analyze body language.
23Preparing for the interview When you have lined up the experts to interview, you should prepare a list of about 10 questions you want to ask. Some interviewees may like to see this list in advance but the idea is to keep it as a friendly conversation but structured.To get questions, you have to find out what people in your niche want to know.
24Getting Questions Or Topics To Discuss. If you don't know the questions you need to researchWhere to find the questions to ask:ForumsAsk your listBrainstorm with othersYahoo AnswersTwitterFacebookSales Pages (Look for claims) Bullet points
25Interviews are Not Just a List of Questions To be a good interviewer you need to know that the interview itself is not just about the guest that is being interviewed; and it's certainly not all about “YOU”.*Most Important* Know that there is a third element to all interviews that is much more important than the two people carrying on a conversation.You will know when you should talk, how much to say, and when to shut up.
26The Important Third Element It is important to remember that there are third parties involved in the interview – the audienceMake them feel a part of the interviewBuild a relationship, not just with the person you are interviewing but with your audience as wellMake them feel like you are getting the information to benefit them as well as you
27The Questions Four Types of Questions Shaken – A question completely unexpected.Stirred – Emotional and moving.Gently tossed – Easy question…. Maybe something new for the audience.Over easy – Completely expected.Important Questions to Ask: Who, What, Where, When, Why and How? Open-ended questions will take some thinking on the part of the person you are interviewing.
28Closed QuestionsClosed questions require short answers, with one word or phrase, like “yes” and “no”.It is easy to make statistic conclusions from closed questions:Are you a Democrat or Republican?The questions are short and do not leave much room for the interviewee to reflect over the questions. They give you facts, are easy to answer.The interviewer keeps control over the interview.
29Open QuestionsThese questions require more information from the interviewed. That means that the answers contain more than one- or two-word responses.Why do you consider yourself a Democrat or Republican?Open questions help the interviewer to analyze more deeply and go beyond the surface to find answers.It gives the interviewed a chance of developing thoughts and opinions.
30Question Example Wrong: “How can I build my list of subscribers?” Correct:“If you lost everything you have including your list of subscribers, or you were a beginner that was just starting out and you only had 30 days to build a list of 1,000 subscribers, could you tell me exactly how would you would go about it.?”Put some real thought into your questions you are going to ask.
31Keep Order and Transfer Power Don’t interrupt.Don’t jump back into the position of power too soon if you find yourself with dead air.The person being interviewed will feel compelled to give more information and may go further than they intended to with their answer.Learn to use the microphone. Whoever has the microphone speaks.When you are done speaking, use the microphone to transfer the power to the other person by holding microphone in front of them.
