Do you listen to the radio? No? Did you know that there are actually people who love to listen to people talk online? There are people who like to record and add audio clips of themselves talking about a wide range of topics over the Internet. These topics ranging from lifestyle, and technology for even religious subjects. These files can be either audio clips pre-recorded or broadcast live just like podcasting.
This phenomenon is known as podcasting. It is somewhat similar to blogging, except that instead of writing out the content, and this is done through voice. You can reap the same benefits of having a regular blog written. It’s just another approach to reach visitors who prefer to hear the voice rather than read something.
To start podcasting, and you need some basic equipment such as podcast headset, microphone and software that allows you to record sound. You can earn money by podcasting pretty much the same way as you would with blogging. Returns can be in the form of ads such as Google AdSense, or may supplementing your income with renewed other sources of income such as online affiliate marketing.
The shortest way to start publishing your podcast first is to create a Web site to publish your podcast. Site will be something like a blog to publish podcast recordings. Next, register your content using audio recording software such as Audacity if you do not already have one. Convert your recordings to a small MP3 files. Next, download your audio files along with descriptions about your web site.
Add content as often to your site as possible so you can build a regular listener base that will keep coming back for more. The more visitors you have, and the more revenue you can generate from your display ads through the AdSense program or whichever monetizing used by the effort. Pimp your site on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and forums.
