I just got back from attending Allison Maslan’s Business Blast Off Event in Las Vegas. Allison Maslan is a client, a friend, and a female business juggernaut. I was able to speak at her event this weekend about podcasting. What’s neat is that it wasn’t a podcasting conference or an Internet marketing conference. This wasn’t the traditional type of conference that I usually speak at.
This was an event where everybody that attends puts together their business blueprint for the year ahead. The idea of speaking about podcasting to an audience that is putting together their business blueprint was really exciting. I spoke for about 50 minutes. What you are about to hear is a segment that I recorded in the middle of the presentation. I talk about three massive benefits of business podcasting. Making podcasting a part of your bigger business strategy is how all of this works together.

Yeah, this is where Allison found herself on iTunes the morning after we asked the room to subscribe.  Do you ask your audience to subscribe?

Tip of the Week: 

Your podcast might not end as a podcast. It could become a CD or an audio book. It could become something that needs better fidelity than that final project you made when you made that podcast. Keep your project archives. Keep a copy of everything that has been done. Put it someplace intelligent. Catalog it and maybe even store it offsite. Don’t just keep the final project. Do this, and you’ll thank me someday.
