The 10 Best Content Marketing Podcasts for Editors and Magazine Marketers

How to become a better content marketer, editor, and writer by listening to these content marketing podcasts

Podcasting and Native Emails, Oh My!

Podcast Publishing: Another Strong Link in the Multiplatform Strategy Chain?

With the explosive success of Serial and Slate’s Panoply, podcast publishing has emerged as a viable – and, more to the point, profitable – option for digital magazines. Audio content is inexpensive, not difficult to produce, and popular with consumers. What’s more, it fits in neatly with the Mequoda Method for multi-platform publishing, which emphasizes repurposing content with products aimed at converting mobile and desktop visitors. Sounds like a win-win, right? Well, our friends at Publishing Executive recently took a closer look at the phenomenon from an industry standpoint. Let’s see what they found out!

Choosing Your Video Camera for Content Marketers

A personal video recording studio isn’t as expensive as it once was.

With online video popularity growing at a faster rate than television ever experienced, media companies are enhancing their content by providing their audiences with video.

Making a Video, Technically and Content-Wise

The Finer Points of Creating a Video

An interesting theme recently on the SIPA Marketing Listserv focused on turning PowerPoint presentations into Web videos. The idea is to add varied animation/visual effects, transitions between slides, other attractive visual items (drawing and/or photos), narration and/or music. Camtasia Studio came up as one solution. Daniel Park’s new digital book, Camtasia Studio 7, The Definitive Guide, can provide a jump start on making the presentations more powerful than other ones you might see.

Sony Vegas was brought up as a good option for video editing with slides, etc. The user said that “it is intuitive and much simpler and cheaper than Camtasia for simple video projects.” (Though Camtasia was still recommended for screen capture, however.) Another publisher was looking at Brainshark because it (theoretically) is easily portable into a mobile app.

6 Formats for Better Podcasts

Audio is a valuable resource; here are six formats for creating good podcasts

The power of audio is often underestimated, especially with the emergence of video in today’s digital environment.

However, it’s important to remember how valuable quality-audio content can be. For instance, let’s consider the information published by the Nieman Journalism Lab in April 2011. In the article, Nieman Journalism Lab reported on NPR’s findings for digital audio, which found that audio consumers are more engaged, as they rack up more pageviews.

Podcasts Are Making a Comeback!

Listen to the new media trends: a podcast listener is worth his weight in gold

Listen, let’s be honest. All the buzz about podcasts sort of fizzled over the past year or so. Do people still use them and listen to them? Sure. Does everyone want to be a podcasting expert like they want to me a social media expert? Not so much.

This past weekend, I went to PodCamp Boston 5, a new media conference, and one of the big topics discussed was podcasting. This is not a new topic, podcasts have been around for years and the Podcamp community especially enjoys hyping it up.

Build Email Marketing List Circulation with Podcasts

(Nationwide)—The world of audio communication has found a home on the Internet. From podcasts to musical pieces, the media-rich environment has been reaching eager listeners for years. Content producers and online publishers looking to expand the ways in which they disseminate information should utilize this medium.

Podcasts aren’t just for the 30% of the population who are auditory learners, although it is likely more important to the people who fit into that category. Podcasts are for those who are on the go or those who prefer to listen opposed to read content.

6 Great Ideas for Podcast Creation

Podcasting (both audio and video) is one of the Internet’s biggest new media trend – how can you start utilizing them?

If you are already offering online video, it’s practically a no-brainer to offer those videos as podcasts for your users. If you’re recording interviews, why not offer audio podcasts as well?

How online publishers are using podcasts to expand their brand, increase customer loyalty and make more money online

Successful podcast publishers distribute their podcasts at least once a week.
