The use of the podcast (an Internet channel used to communicate information) to effectively reach a sector of a business market is being used more and more today. People have decided more every day that they want to be a part of a specialized newscast that gives them information on specific topics that they have interest in. Podcasting is a great way to give information to a specific group of subscribers in the form of video, audio, or PDF files.
A podcast is very similar to a station such as a radio station or TV station. As additional postings of videos or audio, or even written text is added to the podcast channel, the subscriber receives these additional postings when they are posted on an ongoing basis.
