|02/28/2007 Podcast Recording Software
Before you begin podcasting develop a plan and a format
for your show. Determine the focus of your podcast and what
types of guests you would like to interview. Time spent planning
your show will contribute to it's success.
Location, Location, Location
When you are producing a podcast on a regular basis it is important
that you select an appropriate location for the recording to
take place. The location should be free of external distractions
and relatively quiet. It is easiest if you use the same location
each time, that way the equipment can remain in place and will
not require moving or setup each time you produce a show.

|02/26/2007 PC Magazine Believes the Podcast Hype
Great podcasting article by PC Magazine:
All of the hype surrounding new communication technologies
like podcasting may make you wonder why you bother paying attention.
But like blogging, which I wrote about in the previous issue,
podcasting is a relatively easy way to increase consumer awareness
and create an open dialogue between your customer and your brand,
ultimately creating loyalty.
Customers can also subscribe to your podcast, so that each
time you produce a new show, they will automatically receive
it. Much as a webinar can do (but without needing to be live),
podcasts can reach your target market with regularly scheduled
relevant messages and information about an issue, your industry,
and your business.
