ReadyTalk Releases New Podcasting Enhancements

ReadyTalk just released our new podcasting enhancements yesterday. Our goal with this release was to give our customers an easy way to turn both their audio and web recordings into podcasts.

Podcasting is a great way to increase your marketing reach, build your online presence and make sure everyone in your company is connected. Plus, podcasts are more interesting to watch and have a greater impact than reading a memo or newsletter. Industry PR giant Edelman released a survey of businesses which showed a staggering 35% companies are already using podcasting. Companies such as General Motors and Sprint have created podcasts as another way to market their products and attract more tech-savvy consumers.

ReadyTalk is one of the first conferencing companies to introduce a do-it-yourself podcasting tool. We have made podcasting creation extremely simple.

It’s also simple for your audience. With one click, people can subscribe to your podcast and have both the audio and visual content automatically delivered to their laptop, iPhone, or MP3 player allowing them to watch it at their convenience.

Learn how you can create and promote your own successful podcast series. Register for our free live web seminar on October 25.

Training with Web Seminars

The other day I was talking with a friend who conducted software training for his company. He was complaining about the amount of travel he had to do all the time and all of the logistics that were involved. Of course, I extolled the benefits of web conferencing and told him it could not only save him a bunch of money but also keep him sane. After talking with him for a bit, I decided to come up with this table that will help highlight the advantages of web conferencing over traveling (or what I refer to as "The Old Way").

I have sent this table on to my friend. I hope it convinces him that web conferencing can help him balance his training schedule more effectively. Being a former software trainer myself, I understand that sometimes there is a need to be face-to-face. However, the majority of the times you do not need to get on that flight and make that hotel reservation. You can simply roll out of bed, stroll over to the computer and begin training with your virtual participants. I would love to hear from you about anything I missed that makes web conferencing advantageous over traveling.
