4 Clever Audio Apps to Connect With Your Readers
Hello to all my fans and all my readers (big cashers) It’s the chief cash blogger Darrell coming at you, the last holiday weekend of the summer. Happy Labor Day. As a veteran it’s a special holiday.
I’ve got my family and friends here “Isley Brothers playing on the cd and bar-be-que and hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill. It’s a beautiful 78 degrees in Iowa today.
Rand Fishkin of moz.com said, “we need to think about a broader spectrum of content than what our target audience wants.” That’s why guys once a month we will do a post pertaining to apps.
The last couple weeks I have been getting questions and comments asking me about podcasting. Now podcasting is a great way to build and connect with an audience, but it takes a lot of commitment. From the writing to promotion and then managing.
I know many podcasting “rock stars” have made it big. I’m a huge fan of Pat Flynn’s podcast show but guys if that’s not your thing you can still leverage audio to connect with your readers (audience) and get the same benefits.
Guys todays share is titled ” 4 Clever Audio Apps to Connect with Your Audience.” There are hundreds of audio apps you can use with your smartphone but I’m going to share four apps that I use and am experimenting with for an upcoming audio journal.

Let us help you elevate your social media presence with our Social media MANAGEMENT service.
Each app mentioned is available for iOS and android. Each one has a FREE option.
Is an audio hosting platform. They make it easy to follow broadcasters you love,upload and record from the web.
Share and comment on the shows and playlist you follow. You can apply to create a podcast from a playlist of your sounds.
For those who prefer to listen to content versus watch a video or read a post this is the perfect option.
(2.) AUDIO BOOM
Promotes itself as “the leading mobile,web and connected device platform for the very best spoken- word content in news, business and sports.
Once you download the app and setup your account, you’ll be able to follow download and create playlist. On the top navigation bar,you’ll find the record button.
Tap it and you can immediately begin your recording up to 10 minutes. You also have an option to apply as a podcaster and to create an iTunes feed for your broadcast.
Is a newcomer to the audio scene. Anchor serves a different purpose. It’s designed to spark conversation. As a broadcaster you record short audio clips,include a short description and relevant hashtags.
Your listeners can respond easily thru audio which gets a conversation going between you and among your followers.
Recording is as easy as talking on the phone. Literally to record tap the record button then hold your phone up to your ear,like talking on the phone and well talk. Recordings are limited to two minutes.
And you are able to review before you publish. As I mentioned above, I’m experimenting with the idea of creating an audio journal during my vacation to the Virgin Islands.
(4.) REV VOICE RECORDER
Rev is not a social media app. It’s a straight-forward recording app. The cool thing guys is that the people behind Rev also offer a transcription service for $1 per minute.
Why I like it Record. Review. Share via email. Transcribe.
Well it’s not exactly an audience engagement app,but if you’re a blogger I just know you get great ideas when you’re not in front of your Mac.
Grab your phone and record on Rev,then send it immediately to get it transcribed.
A two or three-minute recording is usually turned around in less than 24 hours. Copy into a new blog post and save as a draft. Now you have the outline for your blog post in writing.
KEEP YOUR GOALS IN MIND ?
- What message do you want to send?
- Who is the message for?
- Do you want to tell a specific story?
- What’s your call to action?
These questions apply to using the first 3 apps.
Anchor is ideal for engagement,getting feedback, quick promotions or blog post.
Audio Boom- with its longer recording time can work for a micro-podcast,daily tips, tutorials and how-to’s.
Soundcloud- is similar to AudioBoom. Personally it’s great for repurposing videos and recording blog posts.
