Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Podcasting is an online media delivery with many business uses: product launch and development, customer support tutorials, press releases, and various others.  Large and small businesses can create an interest in their products and services by demonstrating them in videos online.  Idea-based services use audio to talk to their customers.  Even newspaper publishers have introduced podcasts.  It is expected that U.S. podcast use will increase steadily over the next five years.

Most business podcasts are boring and uninspiring.  Harnett explains not only how to create a podcast but how to make it compelling.  He explains the practical tasks needed, what digital equipment to buy, and what resources are available free online. Crucially, Harnett reveals how to entice potential customers to your website.

Topics include: how to write good audio, how to tell business stories through pictures and video, digital technology, recording, interviewing, editing, uploading, copyright law.
