Podcast Review: Small Business IT Radio

Podcast Review

This week’s Podcast Review is about the Small Business IT Radio Podcast.

Description: Small Business IT Radio is a show for IT Professionals that service the small business market.

Comments: This BlogTalkRadio hosted Podcast is a Canadian based program. Audio quality is good and most shows typically get right to the topic. Occasionally their is a sponsor message but off-topic content is kept to a minimum.

This show provides new content every week and averages from 45 to 60 minutes each. Usually they have a guest expert that is interviewed. Here is a sampling of some recent show topics:

– Inside the DELL PartnerDirect Program and Small Business
– Facebook for Business
– Andrew Barber-Starkey’s “The 7 Success Accelerators”
– Top 10 Ways to get leads into your business

There are well over 25 different shows focused on helping Small Business IT firms achieve success. Show notes are available but not necessarily detailed.

Pluses: I like the focused content and the shows focus, small business success for IT providers is difficult and I think the show has targeted a good audience. The audio is good, the topics and content is strong. The Blogtalk interface provides good web basics, search, RSS, instant play and archives.

Minuses: Occassionally the sound level between the host and guest is wide meaning you have to play with your volume levels to listen effectively, this can be distracting. There are also no show categories available.

Recommendation: If your business is providing IT services and products to the small business audience then the Small Business IT Radio Podcast is one you should check out.

    Well, I don’t know about anyone else but I can’t even get on the site. It keeps trying to locate my time zone over and over again. Is anyone else having trouble?

  2. EJMalyn Says:

    I did get on the site after a few minutes of waiting. My problem is the volume, even after playing with it for a while. Any suggestions!
    Liked the sites content.
