205: Avoid Podcast Host "Bait & Switch"

Those new to getting booked on podcast shows may come upon situations you’re not quite sure how to handle.

Whether it be the host asking you to pay to be on the show, being required to agree to pay a no-show fee, or a bait and switch where the only reason the host invited you on their show was to sell you their products and services.

Paying to be on Shows

As a rule, most hosts do not charge their guests. However, it is not unheard of, but before you agree to pay, determine if it’s a good investment.

In other words, what has to happen to justify the cost?

No Show Fee

Charging a “no-show” fee is a new one to me. The first time I heard this was a few days ago. In all the time I’ve been hosting two shows and being a featured expert on hundreds of shows, I’ve never come across this.

I’m not sure if this is a new practice, but most of the show hosts I know, do not have a no-show penalty fee.

Guests Paying for Host’s Products and Services

Investing in your personal and professional development is to be expected. It’s not unheard of for a guest to invest in the host’s expertise.

There’s nothing wrong with a featured guest investing in the products and services of the host, if the investment is one the featured guest felt called to make and did not feel pressured to make.

If, on the other hand, the host invites guests on simply to do a “bait and switch” sale that’s slimy business practices.
