You are invited to participate in an interview as a speaker and expert. How should you properly prepare? And how do you come across well in a live interview? Dr. Daniel Schwenger is an expert in digital marketing and live video influencers. As a broadcast journalist, he conducted more than 200 interviews. What he learned there, he uses today in my work as a media trainer and live video coach.

Today, conducting virtual interviews is nothing special. Especially, live-streaming platforms Ecamm Live, StreamYard and Restream allow you to broadcast simultaneously across multiple social networks in high quality.

So why not give a live interview a try? The advantages of an interview are great, you are perceived as an influencer and an expert. This puts you in a much better position with your knowledge. Because you don't have to present yourself as an expert and beg to be heard, you'll be asked.

What should you keep in mind when planning, just before the interview and during the interview? Daniel Schwenger of explains what technical checks you should definitely do beforehand and which content-related preparations will help you keep a cool head during the interview.
