Bring your lunch and join us at the Chamber on Wednesday, January 16th at 11:30 am for Pod – WHAT? What’s a Podcast – Who Listens – And Why Should My Business Care? with Janet Michael, owner of Java Media & host of The Valley Today on The River 95.3. Janet has an extensive background helping small businesses grow using social media & digital marketing. She’s an avid podcast listener and has produced several for both fun and marketing purposes.
Podcasts have been around since the late 1990’s, but in the age of on-demand TV & movies, they have exploded in popularity in the last 5-10 years. In this session, we’ll learn about what a podcast is, who listens to them and why. Podcasts are entertaining, they’re educational, and they’re a great marketing tool. Janet will share a few of her favorite podcasts and we’ll talk about how to listen – whether it’s on your phone or a computer – and even subscribe you to a few podcasts to get you started. So, bring your phone, bring your questions and bring your best radio voice because who knows, we might just record a podcast during the session! RSVP here.
