Frequently Asked Questions
Why would my company need private podcasting?
Podcasts aren’t just for organizations with remote members. Creating a private podcast for your business is ideal for many types of internal communications.
Other communication vehicles have shortcomings that podcasts help overcome:
- Written communications via email and intranet have low readership
- In-person and virtual live meetings are missed by those not in attendance, and so is the information shared
- On-demand video, while more engaging than the written word, requires more time, cost and production expertise
In contrast, podcasts are:
- Engaging and personable
- Inexpensive to produce
- Consumable on-demand
- Perfect for C-suite messaging
- Ideal as a training medium
My company doesn’t have remote workers, do we need Private Internal Podcasting?
In person and virtual meetings have their place. But what happens after the meeting? Was the information shared in the live meeting captured somewhere so that participants can revisit it later? What about team members who weren’t able to attend?
What platforms and devices can be used to listen to podcasts?
Blubrry Private Internal Podcasting offers both a mobile and web application. So whether in the office or on the go, your audience can listen on their mobile phone, tablet, laptop, desktop or smart TV. This is the flexibility you’re looking for to maximize the consumption of your message when, where and how it is convenient for your team members.
Why is it important to have high security for my internal communications?
How important security is really depends on the type of information you plan to share internally. Is the information confidential to only certain people within your organization? Does the information include trade secrets, intellectual property or other information that may be valuable to your competition? If the information were forwarded to an unidentified third party, would it matter if it were consumable? Answers to these questions will help you to determine the level of security needed for your internal communications. Blubrry has multiple security options that can vary based on the specific information shared.
