Analytics & Digital Marketing Tips

Promote your Website and Drive Traffic with Podcasting

May 27, 2008           Digital Marketing

Podcasting is a great online marketing tool to promote a new product/service, keep in touch with your customers, distribute news, and publish entertainment and educational content.

What is Podcasting?
Podcasting has quickly become a great technology for creatively publishing information. So what is podcasting, anyway? Podcasting is themed online audio content that is delivered via an RSS feed. The beauty of podcasting is that your intended audience can consume the information when and where they want. Through various podcasting services (iTunes, etc.) people will download the podcast and they can listen at home, at the office, in their car, or through their iPod or mp3 player while exercising or doing other activities.

Podcasting can also used to extend the use of already produced content and increase traffic to your website.
