PRLog - July 23, 2012 - FORT WASHINGTON, Md. -- Four years ago while conducting research for hosting a prospective terrestrial radio show in the Washington, DC area, I searched and searched, however my efforts resulted in only finding one station with a 30 minute slot for my target market.
Blog Talk Radio
There was one problem with the one and only opportunity afforded to me and it was this, of the 30 minute window to host a live talk radio show, over half of the allotted time was filled with commercials. I went on the internet and discovered a great resource, Blog Talk Radio and I have not looked back.
Over the past four years I have produced and hosted over 400 live episodes of The Wealthy Speaker Show, this media platform is on the cutting edge when it comes to broadcasting a live talk radio show.
One of the primary reasons I wanted to host my own live talk radio show was to increase my brand and visibility as a speaker, author and business coach. One of the primary reasons why Blog Talk Radio is an effective tool is it's simplicity.
What do I mean by simplicity? Great question, I'll explain why Blog Talk Radio is simple and easy to use. For example, in the next five minutes, if you decide to create your own live talk radio show, the only thing you would have to do is sign up.
Within just a few minutes you could literally host a show you create. You don't have to be a techie, meaning its a very user friendly platform and easy to understand. After registering, the only thing you have to do is to get your user name and password.
The next step in the process is to log in to your account and schedule an episode of your show. Then dial the host call in number and pin you will be given and then go live, it's really this simple.
You can schedule guest to appear on your show and or host solo episodes to discuss your expertise. One can also interview multiple guest and or host guest from other countries on international calls using SKYPE.
Another great feature of broadcasting on Blog Talk Radio is its social media features. Prior to hosting your show, you will have the opportunity to notify listeners through social networking such as Facebook, Twitter and Blog Talk Radio.
Over 20 million people per month listen to a diversity of Blog Talk Radio show. Show host can schedule and call guest to interview for their show or the guest can call in. A web chat room is also another excellent feature because it allows show host, listeners and fans to interact and share show content and or post questions and contact information. Listeners can also call in to ask the host and or guest questions, its an awesome platform to say the least.
Studies, surveys and research support a tremendous increase in internet radio listenership today and in the future. One of Blog Talk Radio's best features is its portability, meaning one can host a show anywhere in the world where there is a phone and internet connection.
