[tweetmeme] Have you ever wondered how to make a podcast (a digital audio file that you can play on an MP3 player like an iPod)? I found a quick and simple way to do it with an online tool that converts your blog into a free podcast for iTunes.
It’s called Odiogo, and the beauty of this technology is that it allows you to transform your blog post into “high-fidelity, near human quality audio files ready to download and play anywhere, anytime, on any device.”
Repurpose Your Blog Content
As I mentioned in a previous post about leveraging your blog content to get more leads, using this service enables your blog to reach a wider audience, since many people prefer to listen to podcasts instead of taking the time to read blog articles.
Odiogo not only supports iTunes, but other major podcast services such as Microsoft’s Zune or Juice.
Encourage Readers to Become Listeners
The company has developed tools to simplify the integration of the Listen Button feature on diversified environments, such as WordPress and Blogger, so you can encourage your blog readers to become listeners. Unfortunately, I can’t use that capability since my blog is hosted on WordPress.com. But I have added an Odiogo icon to the right-hand side of this page so that you can subscribe to my podcast.
Let your friends and fans know about this capability too. Post links to it on your website as well as your Facebook page.
If you use Odiogo now, let me know what you think about it, and send me your subscription link. I’d like to hear your what you have to say!
