Why you need to book Marina Barayeva as your guest:

  • The value comes first

I believe in serving people with quality content and bringing value to the audience. I test a lot of things before sharing with people. It’s not just a theory that you read online, but practical tips. Knowing how difficult it can be for people to apply something new to the business, so I try to simplify the process, adjust it to the audience I work with, and put it into the strategy.

  • Get everything you need for your show

As a podcaster myself I know how busy you are. Hosting and managing a podcast takes a lot of time and effort. And probably you have much other stuff to do besides searching for more info about the guest. No worry. You need a BIO, grab one of the versions above. Pick the photos you need. Thinking about the topics to talk about and questions to ask? Find everything on this page.

  • I’ll help to promote an episode

Once an episode is live, it will be shared with my followers, not only when it published, but also after it. As much as we’ll share value with your audience, we’ll share it with my audience too. So it will be a Win-Win for both of us.

  • Fully equipped for the great audio sound

People don’t like bad audio even when the content is good. I use a Blue Yeti mic to make sure that you get good quality audio. I can also record a copy on my side and send you the audio file if you want.
