05/30/2012 Competitive Intelligence for Webmasters
Some companies compete by getting into the minds of their competitors. Competitive Intelligence is the process of collecting information about competitors in a competitive environment. These tips and tricks will help marketers better understand competitive intelligence, and how to effectively compete in their marketplace.

Individuals and companies use a variety of methods to gain information about their competitors. Some methods are controversial, and may even be considered unethical, but it is important that you are aware of them. Even if you don't want to use the questionable tactics yourself, it is important that you and your staff understand them, so you can be prepared and protected if your competitors decide to use them to learn your company strategies or secrets.

05/25/2012 Adapt or Suffer
Small businesses tend to be more agile than large corporations, but in order to take advantage of that strength, they must be willing to adapt with changing times in order to prosper and survive. This is especially true when faced with a difficult economic climate.

Look at some of the corporate giants that have failed to adapt as the market needs changed. For example, Kodak failed to adapt to the digital media market quickly enough, and sadly they faced the consequences. Likewise, KAO Disc Duplication went by the wayside when the software industry moved from floppy discs to CDs, while KAO failed to make the move with the market. The list of business powerhouses that have failed, or found themselves struggling just to survive, is a long one.

05/17/2012 How to Choose a Podcast Guest
Guest selection is very important because no matter how good your podcasts concept may be or how good a host you might be, the guest will definitely make or break each episode. For one, you should choose a guest that is popular or well known to your intended audience. No matter how knowledgeable a guest might be, if the guest is a nobody then you be pretty sure that the podcast would not draw that many listeners.

05/16/2012 Is Podcasting Part of Social Media?
To answer this question properly we have to ask, how exactly does one define social media? Is it a bunch of websites that allow people to connect? Is it a new wave or new media form that is sweeping the world? Is it just Facebook and Twitter?

Let’s look at how Merriam-Webster defines social media - forms of electronic communication as Web sites for social networking and microblogging through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content as videos. The truth is social media can be defined a lot of different ways and in many different forms. So lets look at what social media is not: it is not news, it is not TV, it is not radio, it is not magazines, and its not even a generic website. Social media is not the sound, it is the instrument, or a better way to put it, it’s the 2-way channel or medium through which we communicate.

05/15/2012 Audio Community Is Transforming Storytelling
A first wave of thinking about radios transition to the web seemed to be simply how to make audio files that were produced for broadcast available online. Then there was podcasting, a unique digital distribution mechanism that opened up new audiences and forced a rethinking of format. Increasingly, reporters have been asked to produce text in tandem with their audio pieces, plus images or slideshows that illustrate the sound. The problem with all of these approaches is that they are looking to translate traditional audio practices for online instead of thinking about what unique characteristics drive the web and how audio can inform these.
