Podcasting to Make Money Online
Discover How You Can Start Making Profits From The Podcasting Boom. Easy and Fast to Set Up for Any Website
Podcasting is a way of distributing multimedia files, for example music video or audio broadcasts, using RSS or Atom syndication across the Internet. These can then be played at any time on a computer or mobile device. The term podcast, like radio, can mean both the content and the method of delivery. Podcasting has become a massively popular way of listening to downloaded tracks on the move, and it is rare to see anyone under the age of 40 walking without an earpiece playing favourite music on an MP3 to help the journey along.
The opportunity for webmasters is to offer direct download or streaming of their files; a podcast is distinguished by its ability to be downloaded automatically using software that reads RSS or Atom feeds.
Usually a podcast features one type of show, with new episodes released either sporadically or at planned intervals. Here in the UK it became clear that Podcasting had reached critical mass when BBC Radio started offering podcasts of its most popular programmes. Website owners need to learn about the potential of this new medium, or risk being left behind.
Internet entrepreneurs who are on the look out for the next opportunity have found their target in this new trend. Podcasting opens up opportunities for any webmaster or blogger to make these look easy:
* Create information products without writing one word
* Make regular podcasts to a membership group or optin list
* Store podcasts on the web for visitors to hear at any time
Podcasting is like making a radio broadcast to the world, and it is about to become a key element in website content. The good news is that podcasting is not surrounded by complex technology or rules and regulations. There is no licence required, unlike radio broadcasting. Podcasting requires no expensive equipment – a simple microphone is enough. Even a home based business can start podcasting, recording their contributions and oploading an MP3 file to the server in the same way as any other web content. Finally, the software can be obtained for free.
