3 Helpful Steps to Create Audio Products

One of the fastest growing arenas of Internet marketing is audio products. Almost every online marketer can now offer audio products in the form of CDs and MP3s as a part of their product offerings, due to the better quality and reasonably priced technology developments.

Audio products run the gamut from “talking” your ezine, to podcasts, to CDs to teleseminar recordings. Using audio in marketing is becoming a popular and profitable means of presenting products and information and it is also an opportunity for internet marketers to create mid-level and higher-level products.

1) Preparation

Audio products need to be chockfull of high-quality information that your prospects and customers will value. It is important that you do some research beforehand to find out exactly what your clients need and want.

Research can be done online, by doing surveys, by making phone calls, by partnering with other experts, and by reading books and papers on your topic. You can also bring in people to provide some outside knowledge to add more high-quality information to the CDs or MP3s you create.

When you choose topics that are of interest to your customers and clients, you are helping to pick profitable topics. This will make it easier to have people see the value in your audio products and hand over their hard-earned money to buy it.

Do not disappoint them – load your audio products with useful, relevant, and valuable content. Offer them solutions to their pressing issues or share with some of your expertise to help teach them.

2) Creation

Take the time to write out an outline of your audio product before recording a single word. You need to organize your thoughts into a clear script for your audio. Include all the major points you plan to cover along with the sub-points that support them.

You want to make your audio products sound interesting and keep people’s attention. When you write your script, use a conversational tone and be warm, upbeat, sincere and friendly.

Use the same language you would if you were sitting across from a friend. You can also include attention-getting quotes, facts or figures. Asking questions – whether rhetorical or not – will help keep your listeners’ attention, as well as including stories and anecdotes.

Remember that people learn best when they are engaged and interested. Write your audio script with this in mind.

Take time to rehearse before you ever record a word. Become comfortable with the materials you will present, and work on your control of both the speed and the volume of your voice. Be sure you are accurate in you pronunciation – especially of people’s names and any website links.

3) Production

One of the strengths that audio products offer is the chance for people to feel they know you better and faster by hearing your voice – as opposed to just reading your words. Remember to relax and use an informal, friendly, everyday speaking style. Pay attention to the volume of your voice – you want people to be able to hear you clearly but you don’t want to deafen anyone!

Don’t speak in a monotone and ensure you inject enthusiasm and excitement into your voice. If you’re not passionate about what you’re talking about, then you can’t expect your listeners to feel much either.

Don’t skimp when it comes to your audio gear. Set the goal of producing only high-quality, professional audio products for your internet marketing business. Conduct research on all equipment and tools before you buy. Check online for product comparisons and then go see for yourself. You will be amazed at the difference in quality a few more dollars can mean to your recording efforts.

Don’t release any audio product until you have reviewed it, edited it, and you are sure that all aspects of your final CD or MP3 are professional and of the best quality you can do.

Follow these suggestions and help make your audio marketing as impactful and memorable as possible for your prospects and clients.

8 Steps on How to Use Audio on your Website

In the past, audio was typically used on websites as background music to increase the “WOW!” factor, but it didn’t really help in communicating with customers.

These days it’s a different story. With broadband becoming ubiquitous and streaming audio technologies getting more advanced, you can now easily convey spoken word over the web. Well crafted audio messages can help you add a personal touch to your website which will make customers feel closer to you.

The presence of your voice welcoming customers, answering questions, or describing the benefits associated with your product or service can boost customer confidence in ways that text and images alone can’t.

Most people have computers capable of playing streaming audio and will find it a refreshing change from boring text. Increased use of the internet along with improved technology now make it easy for you to add streaming audio to your website and create that personal bond with your customers.

Reasons Why You Should Have Audio on Your Site

1. Customers remember what they hear more than what they read. Did you know that people remember only 20% of what they read while they remember an astonishing 70% of what they hear? That’s three and a half times more! Your audio message will help you to stick into the minds of your customers longer.

2. Audio boosts your credibility. The sound of your voice adds personality to your website and helps customers identify with you. Customers buy from people who they feel they know and trust, and using audio can help you achieve this.

3. Audio keeps customers on your site longer. Audio can keep customers on your site longer and you give you more time to make the sale. It can be used as an additional resource or tool for customers to familiarize themselves with your product or service while browsing your site.

4. Audio increases your subscription rate. Using a personal audio message to get customers to sign up for your newsletter can raise subscription levels by up to 400% more than using traditional subscription marketing techniques. You can also use audio as a part of an online course that people can subscribe to. The lesson that includes an audio in our free online meditation course gets opened most, leads to the largest number of sales and receives the best feedback.

5. Audio enhances newsletters, ezines and blogs – which leads to profits. You can spice up your newsletter, ezine or blog by using audio to provide special tips or product updates that keep customers interested and motivated to buy.

6. Audio puts you light years ahead of your competitors. Using audio successfully on your site gives you a competitive advantage. Most internet businesses overlook using this effective marketing tool so be sure you’re not one of them!

7. Audio is easy to use. Being able to put audio on your website isn’t limited to just techies – anyone can do it! Many of the programs available don’t even require you to know HTML or flash. They’re designed to be user friendly so you shouldn’t have any problems taking your website to the next level.

8. Audio is cheap. You can add audio to your site for as little as $19.95. More advanced audio solutions will only cost you around $97 – a small price to pay considering the many benefits it provides to your website and your customers.

In short, audio gives you an edge over your competitors and allows you to build a personal bond with your customers in a way that’s not possible with traditional websites. When customers feel they know you and can identify with you, they will be more likely to buy from you.

Where and How to Use Audio on Your Site in 6 Steps

Streaming audio has a variety of uses that can help you win more customers and increase your profits.

Some of the most powerful ways you can use streaming audio on your site are for:

Welcome Messages

A personal introductory message about yourself, your business, and your products can help orient customers, create transparency into your business, and build trust between you and your customers.

Site Maps

Tell customers where they can find things on your website and direct them to important parts of the site where you want them to go (towards your product).

Quick Tips

Share inside tips and tricks with your customers that will enhance their online experience. Over 80% of customers will click on a link to a tip because they know it offers useful information that will save them time.


You can provide quick and easy instructions to your customers by placing audio buttons on your site. Explain what you want them to do and they will listen. Assurances Study your site statistics to see which page(s) customers are seeing before they leave your site.

Is there something on the page that may make customers hesitant to continue, such as a subscription form or a payment link? An audio clip explaining your payment process or privacy policy can help you reassure nervous customers and put their fears to rest.

A testimonial with a photograph is more credible than a testimonial without one. If you have a photograph and use an audio message, you will be greatly increasing the power of those testimonials. Prospective customers will feel even more confident about buying your product or service. Teleconferences and Seminars Streaming teleconferences and seminars can attract customers interested in the topic (and hopefully in your product or service) as well as those who, due to geographical or time constraints, were unable to attend.

Thank You Messages

Audio in emails or on order confirmation pages is a good way to personally thank customers for buying from you. It will help you build customer loyalty and increase the chance of repeat sales.

Building Trust

Offer an audio statement of your guarantee. Or, even better, record a personalized audio introduction to your bonus. Some merchants claim that this helps build trust and credibility as the visitor gets to better identify the ‘real’ person behind the site.

No matter how you use streaming audio on your website, you must have a well prepared message and good delivery. Keep your voice animated and use a conversational style rather than a formal tone. Your voice is what humanizes you and what your customers relate to. Above all, just be confident and be yourself!

Don’t Forget To Do This When Using Audio… Refer to the checklist below before you finalize your streaming audio message:

1. Keep your message short and to the point. Don’t waste time with long audio. Introduce yourself and your site, make your pitch, point customers in the right direction, and then stop.

People have short attention spans so you don’t want to overload them with too much information. Instead, you can break apart long audio and use it in relevant pages throughout the site.

2. Speak at a normal volume. You don’t want to speak too loudly when recording your audio. The sound could get distorted or it may seem as though you’re shouting. Speak at a normal tone and customers can always increase the volume if necessary. It’s therefore a good idea to have a volume scroll bar among your audio buttons.

3. Let customers control playback. Don’t assume your customers want to hear your audio right away and launch it as soon as they arrive on a page. You never know where they are accessing from or what other sounds they may already have going on in the background. Simply invite customers to click and you’ll be surprised by the surprisingly large number who are driven by their curiosity and will click on your link.

4. Include a Play, Pause, and Stop button. Sometimes customers don’t have time – or the desire – to listen to your entire message. And sometimes they need to listen to it one more time to catch something they missed. Let customers take control and put a play, pause, and stop button on your audio.

5. Include a picture. Customers like to see something while they’re listening. Include a picture of yourself above your audio buttons so they have something to look at and can match your face with your voice. This will help you add a personal touch.

6. Listen to your audio before it goes up on your site.

These little streaming audio tips will help you win more customers and increase your profits.

7 Steps To Put Audio On Your Web Page

At one time, to put audio on your web pages you would either have to put up $99 for a software package or join a membership club for $19.95-$29.95 per month. All the pros had audio and they refer to it in advertising as an “Attention Capturing”. Now we can all have audio very inexpensively with the click of a few buttons.

First off you will need a program to convert your audio into an MP3 file. I use Impact Web Audio which is $5 from Online Business Alliance, a far cry from the $99 I almost threw up. And of course you will need a computer microphone.

If you have the gift of gab you may be able to rattle off your script off the top of the head and if you have that ability more power to you. If you’re like me, you will want to write a script before hand. I find it much easier to do that but you need to make sure you:

1.) read slowly

2.) talk naturally in a conversational tone

Basically, you don’t want to sound like you’re reading and you want to sound friendly and knowledgeable. With that said, let’s begin.

Step 1 – Record/Create Audio

In most cases you will be recording your audio for the first time. Some people use other people’s audio files which come in .MP3 or .WAV format and they simply upload them to the audio software.

They will have various options for recording such as the Sample Rate(Hz), Channels (Mono or Stereo), and Bit Rate (kbs). When in doubt, use the defaults. With your script in hand or on in a separate window, press the record button and go for it.

Step 2 – Add a Background Loop

Adding an audio background loop to your vocal message serves two purposes:

1.) It makes your message sound professional

2.) It covers up imperfections that might have occurred during your voice message

These types of audio techniques have been used for years by professionals and have only just been made available to the general populace.

Some audio programs come pre-loaded with sound files you can select from. Others allow you to import your own if you’d like and dub your voice message on top. You can fade in your loop and fade it out and set the amount of seconds you would prefer this to take place.

Step 3 – Select Player Style

Next you will need to select your player style. By player style, I mean the audio playback buttons that will appear on your web page. Sometimes they are square and sometimes round. Either way they look like the play buttons on your electronic devices with a right arrow as your play button, two parallel lines as the pause button, and a square as the stop button. Many come with the color chart or a box to enter the hexadecimal color code to match your webpage.

Step 4 – Set Player Options

Here you will decide if you want your player to start automatically when someone clicks on the page. When used for advertising purposes, most people opt to start it automatically. On the other hand, some people find it intrusive so if your point is to educate and get out information you may want to let people decide for themselves.

Secondly, you will want to decide if you want to send your listener to another page when the audio is complete. Again, this depends on the purpose and placement of the player. Nonetheless, you should have a place to enter a URL to send your listener to should you elect to do so.

Step 5 – Preview Audio Player

You will want to see and hear what your player will look like by itself before you place it on your web page. Have your earphones ready and try out the play, pause, and stop button. If you used a background loop, make sure the music doesn’t drown out the audio. You can adjust and mix levels on both tracks for the optimal sound. Some audio generator software allows you to mix for surround sound if that is of interest to you.

Step 6 – Generate Audio Player

Next, you will want to name and save your audio player. For organizational purposes you probably will want to set up a folder beforehand specifically for audio generators so you’ll know where to find them.

The software will create a flash player file and an HTML file. All the files should be kept in th same folder or subfolder. This will make it easier (if not functional) when you upload this data to your web page. You can save your audio player to different locations, with different project names in case you would like to use your audio player on different web pages.

Step 7 – Upload Your Audio Player Code

The final step is to take the HTML code generated by your audio software and copy it into you’re your webpage source code.

The tricky part here is to make sure the files you created earlier are accessible by the code you copy. In your webspace, make sure you have a specific subfolder or subdirectory for your audio files. You will have to make sure that the code on your webpage points to your audio folder or subdirecty in your webspace for it to work properly.

Just say NO to $99 and above for web audio programs. Put audio on your web pages and save $94 at Nathan Gurley is a professional Internet Marketer and Real Estate Appraiser. For more information visit: Nathan Gurley
