I really want to be able to interview my network members or specialists for my industry and have the interview play on my network for the members to listen to, to generate member participation and general discussion.
I've looked at BlogTalkRadio, but when the app is added to my Ning network, it sends the listener to the BTR website instead of keeping them on my network. I've also tried to upload as a music file, but the music player doesn't create separate pages to attract the search engines.
Does any other member successfully conduct talk show radio style interviews at the moment and if so what podcasting/app/software do you use? And can you do it by phone? Some interviewees live miles away from me.
At the moment this service is only available in the US according to Google https://support.google.com/chat/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&answer=1...
I have been using BTR for the past 4 years. I love it. It is easy to use . DON'T USE THE BTR NING APP. Sign up and place the radio player on the network . Members can listen to the shows live and you can even use the player with up to 5 of the past shows. The members of my site love it and some join BTR but they also stay on my network too while the show is live. I host a show once a week and he use the BTR chat and my network chat for questions and comments. You can always not open the BTR chat and during the live show keep directing people to your network where the LIVE chat is happening. - I hope this helped.
If you go to my radio show page you will see the widget www.poziam.com
Thanks Robert, that's great help and especially for the info re the Ning app.
Another problem with BTR is that it's American based and I'm over here in the UK so unless I pay for expensive premium membership on BTR the show will air unrelated american advert. No offence to americans by the way, just that the ads have nothing to do with my audience.
Can you embed the BTR widget on a separate web page for each show so if one week you talk about say cars and another week you discuss holidays you can then adjust the web page differently for SEO or is there just one widget for all shows?
I understand about the premium prices. If I made $$ doing what I do I would upgrade to the best no doubt but that isnt the case. Best of luck to ya
Sometime this evening, I will post a discussion that may solve your problem. It's a service I discovered last night, it's free and it's awesome. The reason I don't post the information here is there's lots that is not explained at their site that users need to know.
I've been in contact with one of the creators of this service, and will return with more information.
Thanks Patrick. Look forward to knowing more.
Add your discussion link below once you find out everything.
Here you go, Possibility. Hope this helps: http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/introducing-ibroadcast
I'll keep an eye on your other post and see how you and other members get on with it.
iBroadcast looks great for those who want to be "on TV" and are brave enough to be in front of a camera, but what about if we just want a radio show?
Plus, how do we interview someone who isn't in the "studio" with us?
Also can you embed each show into a separate blog or web page?
Looking forward to your answers...
