Industies that need to podcast

Kevin Dugan has a well put together list of twenty industries in which branded podcasts might engage the customer. Number nineteen is “Higher Education”. Podcasts are a perfect medium for instructors to publish lectures for their class. Here is the rest of the list.

1. Airlines: Travel and destination guides

2. Apparel/Retail: Behind the scenes at fashion shows, interviews with models and designers, guide to the season

3. Automotive: Test drives of new models with team drivers, interviews with designers, race reports from behind the scenes-NASCAR, F1, rally

4. Beverage Stores: Festive reviews of selected wines, spirits and beers

5. Books/Music Retail: Guides to summer or Christmas releases, interviews with bands and authors, sample readings from authors to promote an in-store appearance

6. Financial Services: Retirement guides, investing tips, planning for college education

7. Golf Equipment: Guides to courses, interviews with sponsored athletes

8. Grocery Stores: Interviews and recipes from well-known chefs

9. Health Insurers: Wellness tips, meditation guides, nutrition guides

10. Home Improvement Stores: Step-by-step guides to home improvement

11. Hotels: Destination guides, jogging routes, music to jog to, walking tours of cities

12. Micro-Brews: Interviews with the brew master

13. Movie Studios: Interviews with actors or directors, movie making production diaries

14. Sportswear: Interviews with sponsored athletes, event diaries (Olympics, World Cup), and interviews with designers, fitness and training tips

15. Travel and Tourism: Guides to destinations, travel tips

16. Vineyards: Interviews with wine-makers

17. Whisky Makers: Interviews with the makers, tours of the distilleries

18. Video Games- Interviews with game designers, production diaries

19. Higher Education: In a recent show, Shel mentions how Duke University uses podcasts to communicate with incoming students and provide them with lectures. Duke University is one of many schools podcasting.

20. Investor Relations: Consider how many earnings webcasts are out there. Consider how much more cost-effective a podcast can be. A podcast also gives the listener several options on how/when/where they listen to it. Shel also mentioned this in his recent presentation about two seconds after I also considered the idea.

I've been surfing online more than three hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than
ever before.
