Podcasting Can Boost Your Business - I've Got Proof

This podcast episdoe #120 originates at

One of the benefits of being a member of the School of Podcasting is our weekly roundtable / live Question and anser sessions (typical 60 - 120 minutes long). In the last session one of the members talk about how his business is growing due to podcasting. Podcasting is:

Enabling him to reach a global marketHelping qualify his leadsEnabling him to reach customers in a "no pressure" formatEnabling customer to "try before they buy."

Also in this podcast I talk about how you can save money buying a collapsable microphone (sometimes called "Scissors, or Broadcast") boom stand

Other podcasters involved in the roundtable snippet Tim from )

The Rode PSA1 Swivel Mount Arm Microphone costs $90 (and the cool thing about Same Day Music is there is no tax most of the time)

The Heil Sound PL-2T Overhead Broadcast Boom goes for about $125 bucks.

I currently have the $29 model and I love not having a stand next to my desk and the ability to move my microphone out of the way. I did have some issues as the stand holds the microphone in place, but when I first added a pop filter, the stand couldn't handle the weight. After really, really tightening the screws it seems to be working. I will get the $39 model later in the week and let you know how it goes.
