The web is being populated by thousands of podcasts. If you want a podcast featuring radio drama you can find one. The same is true for any type of music you want, comedy, poetry and more.

Businesses are developing podcasts as a means of marketing their brand or product.

A business podcast could be developed based on an interview with the manufacturer of a featured product, or it could be with the website owner on the value and difference customers can expect from their online business.

You don't have to immediately think of an infomercial when you think podcast either. The truth is a podcast should be something the visitor will feel is worthwhile for them to listen in on. The podcast can, and should, draw attention to features of your website and tools that are helpful to them. This can be knowledge based articles that compliment the podcast material or simply a products page that provide detailed descriptions of the item or items you discussed in the podcast.

The site visitor has control over when they listen and whether they visit so don't beg. You should simply provide honest information and let the visitors decide for themselves if the product is worth further review.

The reason it is important to allow the visitor to make up their own mind is that when businesses try a hard press sales tactic they often find visitors will simply hit the back tab and move along. As hard as it may be, you have to learn to trust your visitors and their ability to make informed decisions.

A podcast is simply a personal and entertaining way to present data to your potential customers. It can be added to your arsenal of tools that can be used in marketing your site and your products.

I listened to a comedy podcast recently and the marketing portion of the website was for comedy script as well as a portion of the site that sold a variety of comedy CD's from several featured comedians. Since I enjoyed some of the comedy it gave me the opportunity to make a purchase that would bring some of that comedy home.

Home software makes it possible for even a novice to develop a podcast that can meet marketing objectives in a way that has value to the customer.

Take some time to visit sites with podcasts to see what they do and how they do it. You will gain insight into what works and what doesn't work in a marketing podcast.
