Why do online marketers take the time to do live and archived podcasts?
Are they simply wasting their time or is there value?
Stay tuned for an exclusive interview with a business friend of mine that will be posted within the next week or so that sheds more light on these questions about podcasts. However, to help you “see” the effects of podcasts, here are some recent stats:
Now granted, these are not HUGE numbers. I had 11 listeners the first day, then 12 a couple weeks later, then 5, 1, 0, 2, 4, 6, 4, 9, 6, 6, 6, 11, 10, 2 and then WHAM – 22! My best day yet. That’s a total of 117 downloads in less than a month of doing podcasts at MollerMarketing.com.
These people find me through links on other sites, social media efforts, and through iTunes where I post the podcast for free to the general public. (If you go to iTunes and type in Moller Marketing in the search or How to Start an Online Business, you’ll see my podcast show up.)
To get you all more involved in the Moller Marketing Podcast, the first reader to make a valid comment on this post will be the first “sponsor” on the next podcast. This will be a FREE offer so act now!
Moller Marketing will also be offering a special introductory advertising rate of only $10 for podcast sponsorship. Starting in July, there will be 3 sponsorship spots on the Moller Marketing Podcast – one mentioned at the beginning, one in the middle, and one at the end of each recorded conversation. I will be presenting one podcast per week . The $10 introductory fee will include ad placement for the entire month of July 2008 – this means your business will be promoted at least 4 times in the month of July, plus a content link in the text of each podcast.
Each sponsor will be required to provide the following:
- Complete Payment made prior to launch (email mollermarketing (at) gmail (dot) com for further details.)
- 3-4 sentences of text that explain what your site is about, what you are offering and a special promotion that we can track.
The friend who taught me about podcasts has helped one of his sponsors sell $2,000 worth of product in a month because of the mention of the sponsors product, site, and promotion. Stay tuned for more fun to come!
