Tip 39: Start Creating Your Own Podcasts!

Reading information is always nice, but hearing someone speak it is even better. This is precisely why podcasts have gotten so popular over the years, as people can actually listen to what you say instead of just reading it. It may not sound like a big deal, but it is much easier to convince someone with audio than it is with text. Plus, a connection is formed with the listener which is not so easily done with plain old text writing.

Just like your articles, blogs, and website content, your podcast needs to have quality information that will tell the readers something they didn't know or something they knew little about. As always, you don't have to reinvent the wheel, you just have to show them it in a different way.

Once you create your podcasts, you should then proceed to submit them to podcast directories. That way, the word spreads about your podcast and you get more interest. If you already have a steady stream of visitors then this step might not be necessary, but that's up to you.

Podcasting is not particularly hard, but then again, it's no stroll in the park either. Yes, it will take some time to learn the ins and outs of how to properly set it up for your visitors. However, it is still well worth the effort.

If you don't have any idea on how to go about setting up a podcast, then I recommend that you pick up "Podcast Secrets Revealed". It will teach you everything you need to know about podcasting, including how to drive massive amounts traffic to your site using your podcasts. I have included the link below if your interested. Podcasting isn't for everyone, nor is it for every type of topic; so you'll just have to decide if it's something you want to do.

Check Out The Secrets of Podcasting

Quick Note: You're creating an informative podcast that is meant to attract people to your website, not an audio journal. Have a list of things you are going to talk about before you start recording your podcasts. The last thing you want is for people to think your unprofessional because you were stuttering and didn't know what to say.

Tip 40: Create an "Add To Favorites" Button!

As we all know, it doesn't take much to bookmark a website. Take a few moments, add to bookmarks, and then move it to one of your sub-folders (if your organized). Well, even though it only takes seconds, you would be surprised at how many people actually forget to bookmark a website. That's why an "add to favorites" link or button can be so helpful.

I admit I've done it before. I thought I had bookmarked a website, then when I tried to go back the next day, I noticed that the bookmark was gone. Not only that, but I didn't even remember how to get back to the website in the first place. So just because I forgot to bookmark the site, I lost a valuable resource; even though I told myself to bookmark the page while I was there!

I do it, you do it, my visitors do it, and your visitors do it. Face it, we all make mistakes and forget to do the things that we need to do. Therefore, an "add to favorites" or "add to bookmarks" link is a perfect reminder for the forgetful visitor. Not only is he reminded to bookmark the page, but he can also just click the link and have it done for him.

Some people say not to worry about these types of links or buttons. They say "if your website is good enough, visitors will bookmark it all on their own". I agree with that 100%, but it never hurts to give your visitors a friendly reminder!

Quick Note: An "add to favorites" link can help you increase your amount of repeat visitors. It will NOT help you get new visitors!

Place the following code where you would like the button to appear. (For Internet Explorer users)

<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Add to Favorites" onClick='window.external.AddFavorite(location.href, document.title);'>
