Podcasting is no longer a niche web phenomenon--today, it's a serious business tool. For the right type of business, it offers a great way to connect with your online visitors and customers, while also enhancing your online marketing message. If you have content relevant to your business that would fit well in this downloadable audio format, it could be worth trying out.

New tools put podcasting within just about anyone's reach. Visit Yahoo!'s podcastinghub for a quick primer on what you need for a do-it-yourself podcast.
