EP 1 - Beyonce - How To Connect With Powerful Influencers

UPDATE - Copy of TSONP - EP 1 - Beyonce Knowles.png


You've probably heard of her. 

She's a musical icon who has an incredible amount of influence. 

Imagine if she could promote your brand? 

That would be a game-changer. 

Well, to attract her attention or any powerful influencer, it's not easy especially if you're a nobody. 

Our host, Dave Mendonca, who was once a no-name entertainment print journalist that actually booked and interviewed Beyonce himself, will not only share his tips on how to secure a conversation with a powerful influencer, but you'll also hear his 2008 phone interview with the Grammy Award-winner.

Yes, we're debuting this podcast with a BANG!

It's Dave's first time hosting a podcast in 5 years, so he might be a little rusty, but he's ready to give you some entertainment, information and a quirky episode!

Here are a couple websites to search for influencer email addresses:



Here's an old sample cold email below to send to a powerful influencer's assistant/manager/agent if you’d like to arrange an interview with her.

Tailor it to get the outcome you’re looking for:

Hello ________,

I trust you`re well. My name is ______. I’m a (insert platform – ie: Writer’s Digest, etc) freelance (insert genre – ie: music, etc) writer who’d like to have a 10-15 minute phone interview with (influencer's name) to promote her (briefly describe upcoming projects, businesses or charity work) to our (insert relevant demographics description – ie: global, young, music savvy, etc) audience.

If she decides to participate in this interview, she'll join a great list of those I've written about including Beyonce, Jamie Foxx and Sean Astin to name a few.

I’d like to conduct the interview early next month (make sure you give your influencer about 3-4 weeks’ notice). Since I realize she has a busy schedule, I’m willing to speak with her any day she is available.

To find out more about my work and credibility, here is my website (hyperlink site) and I’ve included some of my past celebrity interviews at the below links.

Thank you for your time.

I look forward to your response.

Enjoy your day,



Dave Mendonca
