LATECOMERS CALL it podcasting but Irish companies like Globetech and VoiceSage often use the term "call services" to describe interactive podcasting. It's easy to dismiss podcasting as a time-intensive technology because it takes more time to set up a good podcast than it does to hammer out some casual text on a blog. But businesses like Irish Psychics Live and phone sex chat lines prove there are mountains of money on the interactive side of audio. Listen to any of the porncasts and do the numbers. At $3 a minute for a return call or $1 for a textback, your audience can provide a sweet revenue stream week after week.
Business uses for podcast call services from the Texas Startup Blog:
- Social Media Consultants
- Support Systems
- Hosting Companies
