There’s been a few podcasts where I honestly wished that I had spoken to the guest beforehand to ensure they were engaging and entertaining speakers. It requires quite a bit of work to plan, schedule, record, edit, publish, and promote each podcast. It’s often why I’m behind on my own.
Martech Zone is my primary property that I maintain, but Martech Zone Interviews does help me to keep working on how well I speak publicly, helps me to connect with influencers and people I respect in my industry, and feeds a portion of my audience that appreciates audio over text… something that no business should underestimate.
Telbee Voice Messaging
Telbee is a voice messaging platform that you can deploy to capture voice messages from future guests or listeners of your podcast. The platform has a few different options… the ability to build a destination page that you can share, a widget that you can embed in any page, or a talk button that you can add to any site via script.
I set up a voice messaging popup for Martech Zone Interviews within a few minutes using their free platform. The paid version has quite a few more customization features, but I thought I’d test it out.
