I use a lot of audio in my business and I'm often asked what some of my favorite tools are. Today, I'll tell you about a secret weapon that I've been using for years and how it could benefit your business!
The Tool – AudioAcrobat
I started using AudioAcrobat a number of years ago when I wanted an easy way for clients to share testimonies. Since then, I have found numerous ways to incorporate the technology into my business. It is a versatile tool that primarily allows you to record, host and play streaming audio and video.
Creating Audio/Video Is a Snap
AudioAcrobat is cloud-based (meaning that you don't have to download any software to use it) and backed up regularly, so you don’t have to worry about losing your audio files. However, I do recommend having a backup just in case.
It is extremely simple to record and they give you four ways to get audio and/or video onto their system:
- Record via a personal telephone line – just pick up your phone and dial in like you were calling voice mail.
- Record via their on-board recorder using your computer and a mic.
- Record via their iPhone app.
- Upload a recording from another source.
How I Use AudioAcrobat
I have a number of ways that I use AudioAcrobat, but here are a few of my favorites:
Collect and Share Testimonies
I have a couple different testimony lines that I use to record client and customer feedback. If you'd like to try it out for yourself, feel free to dial (512) 827-0505(512) 827-0505 Ext 8554.
I use InstantTeleseminar to run my teleconferences and telesummits, but AudioAcrobat is my backup recorder for those events.
Share Recordings on a Sizzle Line
Sometimes people do not want to sit at their computer to listen to a replay of an interview that you did. Yet, most teleconference services do not have the ability to listen to replays over the phone. The Sizzle Line takes care of that! I upload audio and click a few settings and voila! the line is created. Here is a sample for you. If you dial (512) 827-0515(512) 827-0515 PIN 2343 you will be taken to an interview I participated in called “How to Get Productive & Organized, Even if You have AD/HD or AD/HD Tendencies.”
Publish my Podcast and share on iTunes
When I first started recording my podcast a few years ago, I was using a third party tool. My exposure was pretty good, but I've been amazed at how many more people hear my tips now that I have my own RSS podcast and AudioAcrobat syndicates it to iTunes too.

Steph, I'm Not Fond of Learning New Technology
One of the awesome things about AudioAcrobat is their customer support. They run trainings for all of their customers on a monthly basis and are willing to answer your specific questions via email or phone.
We also help clients get their voice/video strategies created and implemented. If you'd like to start getting your voice heard, but don't want to mess with the technology end, let me know. We'll chat and get a plan in place to help you.
How Creative Could You Get?
I talk to people all of the time that tell me that they'd rather talk than type. This powerhouse tool makes that possible!
