  5. INTRODUCTION TO PODCASTING WHERE DOES THE TERM PODCAST ORIGINATE? Some think the term was invented because people listened to the initial programs on an iPOD (they did) via iTunes. While this is true, many also think the term podcasts was created because the POD term stands for… PERSONAL ON DEMAND BROADCASTS!

  7. INTRODUCTION TO PODCASTING WHY PODCASTING FOR MARKETING? > Roughly 47% of Americans listen to online radio, and they’re listening more every year. > Over 1 billion podcast subscriptions were purchased in 2013. > The number of unique monthly podcast listeners has tripled in the past five years, and the existence of podcasts is set to reinvent radio with the integration of Wi-Fi in many new cars, and growing consumer dependence on smart phones and other internet-connected devices. > Podcasts offer several content marketing benefits that video and blogging can’t provide: > Listeners can learn while being productive. > Podcasts are convenient for users on all types of devices and in almost every setting. > Any subject can find an audience (“The Long Tail” by Chris Anderson)

  15. Creating, Distributing, Optimizing Your Podcast INTRODUCTION TO PODCASTING
  16. INTRODUCTION TO PODCASTING Three Things to Remember While Recording 1. Do a Dry Run to Make Sure All Audio Levels are Decent 2. More than one guest? Make sure you don’t interrupt and pitch to others so they have cues on when to speak (Think Improv!) 3. If you commit to 22 minutes or 30 minutes, record until the time is up. Remember, just because it’s on demand doesn’t mean it’s amateur! CREATING
  17. INTRODUCTION TO PODCASTING There are Several Platforms to Host Your Content 1. Places to Host: Soundcloud, Spreaker, Liberated Syndication, Podbean, Buzzsprout, Hipcast 2. You can easily take the RSS code on these platforms once you upload your mp3 or mp4 file to input into the Apple Podcast Directory to create RSS subscriber feeds (so once people subscribe to your podcast, anytime you upload a new show, they will get pinged with that episode if they are subscribed) 3. You can also convert your mp3 file into an mv4 file and upload with an image to YouTube or SlideShare (which support video). This is another alternative channel to be discovered. Use Windows Movie Maker or iMovie on Mac. Or use a service like TunesToTube.com DISTRIBUTING/HOSTING
  18. INTRODUCTION TO PODCASTING Once you have a host, now you need to promote: 1. Fill out information to describe your podcasts. These words reach search engines. 2. If you’re using services like Soundcloud or Spreaker, use their APIs to promote your content to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. That way with an upload of audio, each network is pinged with an update to your followers/audience (no additional steps required) 3. Use the HTML embed to post the podcast on your website, blog or to third party sites OPTIMIZING
