Get Interviewed

How it Works

The SMB Community Podcast is designed to inform and engage the SMB IT community. Our primary purpose is to give IT Service Providers and Managed Service Providers the information they need to be successful. This includes strategies and experiences from other IT Service Providers. It also includes information from vendors on new services, tools, and strategies that may help consultants to be more successful in an ever-changing world.

Our new format includes news, analysis, and interesting conversations with IT consultants and their vendors. On rare occasions, we’ll have a 15-minute interview with a vendor, but these are paid engagements. If you are interested in a paid appearance, please select “vendor” on the form.

Questions? Fill out the form and we’ll get back to you!


Submit the form

You’ll tell us a bit about you, your company, and what you want to talk about. You can choose your preferred host and let us know 3 dates you’re available.


RSVP to your interview

Based on the three dates you mentioned, we’ll send you a Zoom Meeting invitation. Occasionally, we’ll need to suggest alternative dates/times.


Record your interview​

We’ll record with both audio and video, but the podcast is audio-only. Most spots are 5-15 minutes. Paid Vendor spots are 10-15 minutes. Plan for 30 minutes to allow for technical issues. Note: all vendor appearances must be paid and approved beforehand.

Our Audience

Our audience consists of IT service providers, managed service providers, cloud service providers, VARS, and other technology companies. If this is your market, please fill out the form. If this is not your market, be sure to note why you would be interesting to our audience. Thank you for understanding.

Our Guests

Vendors/Sponsors: We are happy to interview just about anyone who wants to do business with the SMB (small and medium business) technology community, MSP (managed service provider) community, and small business consultants generally. We prefer that you have something to “push” during the interview – including new products, major announcements, etc. Your first appearance is free. See below.

VARs/IT Professionals: We are also looking for MSPs, VARs, etc. to tell your story. How did you conquer a problem, have success with a client, tackle a big project, etc. We want the great stories that can be heard in the hallways of the major conferences. What makes you successful?

Frequently Asked Questions

Pretty much anyone who has something to say to the small business IT community. We need some editorial control, of course, but so far there hasn’t been any abuse.

We ask vendors to pay for an appearance. It’s only $1,500. So if you have any budget at all, you can afford it. We highly recommend that you purchase three or four appearances per year in order to give our audience regular “checkups” on what’s new with your company.

YES! We want you to talk to I.T. Professionals about what makes you new, better, and different. I’ll give you a big hint about how to be successful: Tell the technology consultants listening to the podcast how they can make money if they partner with you.

None, really. We would LOVE it if you had an offer for the audience. You know, a free trial or 30% off, or something like that. We’d rather not just make the same offer you do on 1,000 other websites and podcasts. NOTE: Please read the “Can I waste your time?” item below!

You don’t. It’s never happened. It’s not what we do. So you just have to trust us. Listen to past podcasts. We treat everyone as a friend who’s trying to make a living by providing value to small I.T. consultants.

Maybe. Sometimes we cut out a portion of the interview. Sometimes we cut the beginning or end for time. But it’s always done to make you and us look good.

Nothing. But really, we are not interested in making anyone sound foolish or misrepresent anything you’ve said. If you’ve listened to any of our podcasts, you know our goal is to offer quality content and information in the IT space.

NO! If you schedule an interview and then cancel at the last minute, you will not be rescheduled until you buy a paid appearance. We’re sorry to have to do this, but we’ve had several vendors simply waste our time. You can purchase an appearance here:
