Getting Olymic Caliber Guets
Today I share a technique I learned from Gary Lealand from www.fastpitchillustrated.com (and www.podcastpickle.com and www.todayinpodcasting.com). If you are trying to get someone on your show, and they have endorsements from a company, contact that company and explain how you'd like to have that person on your Internet Radio Show to talk about your niche, and their product. It's working great for Gary. Gary is using his podcast (which he is very passionate about) to help sell products (which are featured at his site). He is also being seen as an “Expert” in his field because of his podcast.
Check out how Gary is using a podcast to drive traffic to his sporting goods store at www.fastpitchillustrated.com

Am I a Podcaster?
Tamara from www.modergeartv.comasks, “I have video on my site am I a podcaster?
A: No. The power of podcasting is that it is delivered via RSS. You can learn how to subscribe to a podcast at www.learntosubscribe.comThen every time you put out a new show, it will automatically be downloaded when your listener/viewer launches iTunes. Without an RSS feed, you have “audio/video” on your website. The good news is if you have a blog you have an RSS feed. If you use Feedburner you can check a setting to make any downloadable media automatically be included in your RSS. (Tamara is using Blogger).
