The Regional Business Talk Network provides an opportunity for you to partner with us to deliver our Podcast programs. In return we share the majority of our sponsorship and advertising revenue.
We need people with a genuine interest in our Program Areas to conduct and record interviews, either over the telephone (or Skype) or face-to-face with business people and other stakeholders to convey stories and information of interest.
You don’t need to know how to podcast, just how to interview interesting business people on the telephone, Skype, or face-to-face. We handle all the technical and time consuming work, you just focus on creating great content.
Our Production Assistant markets our program to Regional Economic Development professionals and other business stakeholders throughout the USA, Australia and New Zealand to setup interview participants for our Roving Hosts. Hosts can accept or decline any interview but the more they participate, the greater percentage of the revenue pool they share.
Roving Hosts get to focus on creating compelling content, we do all the tech stuff, promote the program and identify sponsors and advertisers. They simply upload the recording, draft some basic show-notes and – we do the rest.
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in podcasting but doesn’t want to get bogged down in the details – Even if you already produce your own podcast, we will help promote your podcast though our network where appropriate. Interested in being a Roving Host?- Contact us now.
Our regional programs focus on a defined Economic Development region and promote the efforts of Economic Development Organizations in the area. Local Hosts network within the local business community to secure and record interviews and present local business news. We assist by providing technical support, post-production, media and website hosting, program marketing, advertising sales, and a support community.
Local Hosts receive revenue based on a formula of local and overall sponsorship and advertising. This a great opportunity for someone that has established business networks in a region and is passionate about promoting regional business.
