Podcast Tools for Social CRM

To create podcasts for Social CRM, you can choose from several types of tools. Using tools can help you create the best podcast for your brand. Your choice will depend on such things as the following:

  • Where do you want to store and retrieve files?

  • How many files do you want to create?

  • What will your file size be?

  • Are you working alone or with a team?

The different types of tools are as follows:

  • Record and store in the cloud. You could use a service that stores your files in the cloud (on someone else’s computers).

  • Record and store on your company’s computers. If you have an IT team to manage files, you may want to store your files on your company’s equipment.

  • Broadcast over the Internet and store in the cloud. Tools like these enable you to create your own talk show. Blog Talk Radio, an example of this type of tool.
