Should you consider podcasting?


Videocasts and podcasts have always been popular on the Internet, and businesses of all types are turning to these channels for boosting business and spreading awareness of their websites. But what about someone who has a tiny home business? Is it worthwhile trying to create a podcast about your products or services?

In some cases, the answer is “absolutely YES!” If your business involves handmade articles — sewing, crafts, food — then even a quick little demonstration video on YouTube or a podcast can bring a lot of attention to your website.

Recordings such as teleconference calls, audio newsletters, and instructional talks are only a few of the opportunities other internet marketers are already using to build relationships and find new customers. Podcasts are convenient to listen to at any time and in a variety of formats, whether via MP3 player, streamed on their computer or burned to a CD. The right podcast will send people to your home business site for many years to come.
