Integrating New Marketing Technology

By John Jantsch

Blogs, podcasts and RSS are all the rage in marketing circles, but sometimes you’ve got to remind folks just why that is.

In my book, new technology for new technology sake can be a waste of time or, at least, a distraction if there is no marketing payoff in its use.

Recently, Jerry added both a blog and a podcast site in order to publish what amounts to an encyclopedia of great real estate questions and a ready backlog of radio shows that also provide great content.

The ability to repurpose this content and create another channel for their marketing message is a very powerful use this new marketing technology.
