By now, you all should understand how important blogging has become to promoting your real estate business. But, just like static photos have given way to slideshows and videos, blogging has evolved into something more: podcasting. It is now easy for real estate professionals to create your own podcast for FREE!
PodBean.com is a podcast hosting website that allows you to create and publish your very own real estate podcast for FREE. Yes, I said it...FREE! You don't have to be a "techie" to do it either. Once you sign up for your free account, you will be sent an email containing your password. Log in to your account, add a logo/photo, podcast title, podcast description and podcast directory listing on the dashboard and you're ready to rock.
Your PodBean site looks very similar to a blog. In fact, when you want to publish your real estate podcast to your PodBean account, you will need to go into your dashboard, add your tags, title and content describing the podcast. Then, you will be able to add your media file and publish it. PodBean accepts MP3, M4A and MP4 audio files as well as MP4, M4V, MOV, AVI and MPG video formats, FVL flash video, 3GP mobil video, PDF (eBooks), Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. With that many options, your promotional opportunities are endless.
You can even submit your podcasts to iTunes and make them available for download for anyone. If you decide to try your hand at podcasting for profit, PodBean provides built-in eCommerce tools so that you can accept payment smoothly and securely.
You've probably seen podcasts on the internet or even subscribed to a few on iTunes. How about seizing the opportunity to create your own podcast for free? It looks to be the next step in the evolution of promoting your real estate online today.
