SpeakPipe (http://www.speakpipe.com) is a new service currently in Beta that lets visitors to your site who have a microphone leave a comment in two clicks. You then receive an email (if you want) stating that you've got a message along with the name of the caller, and a direct link to the voicemail. It's very cool. You create your account for free, and copy and paste a piece of code into the footer area of your Wordpress theme (it also works with other systems). There are some screen shots at their site, or if you are a member of the School of Podcasting you can watch the video I created to show it off. Check out the service at www.speakpipe.com (http://www.speakpipe.com)

Podcasting For Your Business
Kevin Mulryne (who I tlaked about in a previous episode (http://schoolofpodcasting.com/say-yes-to-podcast-promotion/)) of the Yes Music Podcast is talking to people at his job about starting a podcast for their business. Here are some things to keep in mind:
1. Audio podcasts can be listened to while doing other items.
2. You are seen as an aexpert.
3. You can build a community and solicit comments from your audience.
4. It costs much less than advertising on any other media, and you reach a global audience.
5. You can use a tool like Magic Members (http://schoolofpodcasting.com/magicmembers) to restrict who can and can't consume your content.
6. You can use podcasts as a customer service tool.
7. Don't have any hard selling in your podcast. People don't choose to watch commercials.
