Radio Show vs. Podcasting

11 replies
I'm interested in doing a Radio Show / Podcast.

I'd like to find something that allowed features like the one shown in the image below:



"The Radio Show" above features that I like include:
  • originally offered live for people who 'listen in' at the right moment
  • allows 'call in' interviews -
  • lists previous broadcasts mp3 files for people to click on and hear

Looks like they programmed the site, and it's not some tool embedded from a service...? But I'm not that technical (OK - not at all technical )

Any recommendations for vendors / services?

P.S. - Can someone explain the difference between Internet Radio like above and a 'podcast?'

P.S.S. - On a Google search for podcast, I came accross CNN.com - Podcasting - which lists top-ranking podcasts from iTunes. So, does that mean you can get more traffic with a podcast then a radio show?


Thanks!

    Check out BlogTalkRadio.com. They may have what you are looking for.

    Another option is Live365.com

    Hi Heidi:

    If you're going the blogtalkradio route, there is a guy in the Warrior Forum that has done exceptionally well in the area of your interest. He has gotten quite a following on his radio show.

    He also had a system a while ago about how to get on page 1 in the search engines really fast. You could do a lot with that, too.

    I'm not sure if he answers PM's but trying doesn't hurt (if indeed you have questions about blog talk radio)

      Bottom line: ANY way to get targeted traffic is any marketer's objective.

      SEO of keywords is one way.

      Think of where your target audience hangs out. Take the proactive approach and get your message in front of them. Posting videos/articles on "How To...niche" sites is one way. Writing for a website in your niche is another way.

      Depending exclusively on Google for traffic is too risky, in my opinion.

        I've been doing the BTR thing, and it's quite enjoyable for now.

        I understand that I don't own the content from BTR - which is the main reason to use other methods - such as podcasting - or these other time shifted examples discussed above.

        But I'm getting lots of traffic from BTR and they let me put product links in the description - so for now, I'm going to stick with it.

        Rather than one or the other - I think I'll just do both.

          I started one on BTR as well, its pretty new so I don't have any live visitors yet but seeing that its getting some activity. I am going to stick with it.

          Have your paid the upgrade or are you using the free version?

    I woudl stay away from Blog Talk talk Radio. Their audio quality is horrible. Also be sure to watch your RSS feed. Don't let anybody but you submit your feed to iTunes. Content is King , but presentation is queen. As previsouly mentioned mixlr.com and a twitter accoutn are a godo team. Jillian Michaels is now telling people to call and leave a message with their phone number and she calls them back. Remember it doesn't have to be live. One of the advantages of podcasting is it is a time shifted conversation.

    My blog is a radio show. But I use a simple WP plugin to playback audios right in the page. (It's a very simple solution).
