Dave gets some listener feedback from Chris at amateurtraveler.com and Paul from technobabelshow.com

I was reading a book about marketing a musical group and it mentioned using chalk to promote your band. Would this work for podcasters? Find where your taget market goes and write your website in front of the entrance? Is this a great first impression?

Get your own domain name for 6.95 a years using the coupon code cooler3 or 10% off using cooler1

People have asked me "Should I write down what to say on a podcast?" When they ask this they mean every word. This is NOT the way to go. I talk about a podcast that is the EXACT content I'm looking for and I CAN'T LISTEN as the podcaster is reading a book.

Most podcasts are one side of a two-way, time-shifted, conversation. Do you read what you are going to say when you call your Mom?

Instead, map out your ideas on note cards, or use software like Microsoft Word, or notepad, to make bullet points. This enables you to create the free flowing, natural sounding conversation based on the bullet point.

NEW SPONSOR: www.trypersony.com The power of online meetings without the monthly fees.

Today I'm talking about some tips for presentation, as well we WHY you should be doing some osrt of introduction for your podcast. This includes:

Doing Transistions Between Topics:
Enable the listener to fast forward through topics they may not want ot listen to, and makes the whole flow of the podcast better.

When you just stop music, it jars the listener. You want the transition to signal something new is now on board.

If you are looking for theme music check out http://music.podshow.com and do a search for the word themes, beats, etc


Get a pop filter for your podcast. Popping P's are annoying. They are about 20 bucks, and can boost your presentation immensly.

Dave explains the jibberish issue when it comes to looking at an XML file.

The reason you should do some sort of introduction to your pdocast is for the Apple iPod Shuffle users. Even if you don't care about shuffle users, its beneficial for the lsitener. Its all about the listener.
