#4) The Winfrey Way (a.k.a Oprah Model)
This is one of the oldest, time-tested ways of generating content: Which is to invite Guests who create the content FOR you.
I call this the “Oprah Model”. Oprah Winfrey became one of the world’s richest self-made women, a billionaire, the most influential talk show host, an author, philanthropist, actress and media personality – all by doing what? By interviewing other people!
Think about that for a second: Of all the athletes, actors, authors, scientists, medical professionals, entertainers, business icons and celebrities who she interviewed on her show – would you EVER consider Oprah an expert in any of those subjects at all? Was she as good at any sport as all those athletes who came on her show? Was she as good a writer as those authors who she interviewed? In fact, she created more best-selling authors than anyone else in this world! But would you consider her any expert in any of the topics on which her guests spoke? Of course not – SHE was interviewing THEM.
So hang with me for a minute here… I’m going to make 2 points here in a minute, as to why this Interview model is both good and bad. The good first.
Listen to the episode for details.
