Podcasting is the most powerful way of broadcasting audio or video files over the Internet. What makes podcasts different than sites like YouTube is that new updates get delivered directly to people’s computers, iPods, and other devices where they can be consumed on-demand without the user having to be online.
Podcasts have become an Internet standard, like email, that is not controlled by any private company or 3rd party community. Anyone can become a podcaster, and anyone can become a podcast consumer without signing up with an account on a 3rd party website. Tens of millions of Internet users now use podcasts heavily, and more and more PR professionals are discovering the power and flexibility of podcasting as part of a complete modern media strategy.
Ownership - podcasts belong to you and are accessed through your website, not a 3rd party website belonging to a private company
Uninterrupted Web Activity - podcasts keep users focused on your content so they are not distracted by pop-up ads or links to other people’s content on other websites
Accessibility - anyone can browse, play, subscribe, and download podcasts without having to become a user on a social media website or join a community
