FIR Podcasting 101 workshop at New Communications Forum – March 1, 2006

The New Communications Forum conference takes place in Palo Alto, California, USA, from March 1-3, 2006. Shel and Neville held a half-day workshop, Podcasting 101, on March 1 that addressed:

  • The elements of successful podcasting
  • How to strategize a business podcast
  • How to build a community of listeners
  • The tools of podcasting, from recording to hosting
  • How to promote a podcast
  • Integrating your podcast with other online content
  • Creating a podcast

The participants (pictured below) applied everything they learned by producing their own 12-minute podcast.
