Podcast Review

This week’s Podcast Review is about the StartUp Bizcast Podcast

Description: Startup BizCast offers weekly small business advice, tips, and education from owners of small businesses.

Comments: Over 20 different podcast shows. Great sound, music and production values. The shows are quick to the point, 15 minutes or less in length.

Each show has a focus topic but all shows also have a small business news segment to keep listeners up to date on the latest news. Here is a sampling of show topics:

– Alternative Advertising
– Voice over IP for your Small Business
– Your Small Business Elevator Speech
– Small Business Logos

Nice website, all of the latest bookmark and subscribe options, between podcasts they post a good recommended reading list. Decent show notes and an easy to get to episode list is available as well.

Pluses: I really like the 15 minute or less length of the shows, of course my favorite instant play and the multitude of ways to get to the content.

Minuses: The site is just a wee busy for my eyes, too many chicklets and links on the right side. My eye doesn’t know where to land.

Recommendation: If you like quick access and quick content focused on a wide range of small business topics then the StartUp Bizcast Podcast is one you should give a listen to.

    Like the quick access. Very short, but with a lot of great tips. Up dating on business news is a plus.

    Thank you so much for reviewing Startup BizCast! I love to hear feedback (positive OR negative) on my show. I’ll take your criticism of the Startup BizCast blog to heart. Sometimes those chicklets do get out of hand. 🙂

    Thanks again!

    I really like his podcasts. He has a really great speaking voice and I like the music and sound he has added to them. Always a plus for me is the instant play. Also love that they are short and to the point. I myself do not find the site too busy, I have seen much worse!

  4. Chris Says:

    I have to agree with you here. I like ‘short and to the point’ as well and the busy sites send me running away. Additionally, the instant play is a big, big plus. If there’s too much involved, again, I simply leave. Even though there is a lot on the right side as mentioned in the post, I don’t find it as confusing as many others I have seen. It’s a really useful podcast site with load and loads of valuable information.
