Furthermore, when you publish an interview content, people expect stories, queries, solution and new ideas and lot more.

How to do it:

  • Ask a question and give time to answer interviewee comfortably.
  • In conclusion, don’t forget to thank interviewee and wish for a good future ahead.

  • This is a pretty good list, but you forgot video! 🙂 The best part about putting videos on YouTube is that you can then embed them into your blog as well as other people’s videos if you’re trying to make a point. I don’t use infographics and I’d be bad at creating memes. I’m also not much of a guest poster; I’ve never asked anyone if I could post one on their site. The other things… spot on!
