This is a short audio podcast with tips on podcasting. By: Charlie Kyte, Executive Director, MASA
This is a 2 1/2 minute long audio podcast that provides several tips on how to create an interesting podcast.
COMING TO YOU DIRECTLY FROM THE AASA NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EDUCATION:
This podcast was recorded live in front of about 60 AASA members at a session on communication at the National Conference on Education which is being held in San Francisco.
WORK OFF OF NOTES RATHER THAN A SCRIPT:
If you use a script or prepared statement that you read, more than likely the message will be boring. Rather present like a radio or TV reporter with brief notes and a conversational tone.
KEEP THE MESSAGE SHORT:
The best podcast are short. Try to stay under 5-6 minutes if possible.
TELL A STORY: Make the message into a story. Tell the audience where you are, who you are interacting with and use examples to make the message a compelling story.
REPEAT THE CORE MESSAGES 3 TIMES:
Headline the podcast with the 'core' subject areas to cover. Then tell the story. Then quickly summarize what you just said.
PROMPT YOUR INTENDED AUDIENCE WITH AN E-MAIL:
Your audience needs to know about your message. Thus sending out a short e-mail to the intended audience helps them to seek out your new message.
