The Explosive Growth Of Podcasts
By Cheval John
It was during the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) National Championship matchup between Sam Houston State and North Dakota State that I had a true idea of what podcasting was all about.
I was covering the matchup for the blog of the school newspaper and a colleague who was working for the Huntsville Item at the time chatted about the beginning stages for his podcast.
Before the matchup, we did a podcast along with the sports editor of the school newspaper about the keys that both teams needed to win the national championship.
I did not think more about podcasting for a while until I saw an article by Eventual Millionaire host Jaime Masters on Social Media Examiner about why a person should start a podcast
That was when I realized that I needed to begin a podcast.
The problem was that I did not have enough money for podcast equipment.
Since then I have been growing my show steadily and using blab to record my show which later appears on BlogTalkRadio.
And many entrepreneurs are now reaching potential customers via podcast.
This infographic below by CopyBlogger explains the rise of podcasts and why now is the time to have your very own podcast.
And to finish this article, here are a couple of podcast episodes from What’s The Word? featuring guests Janette Speyer of Web Success Team and Natasha Davis of Impact Branding Consulting.
