Where possible, I like to find software and tools that you pay for once vs. getting trapped into monthly payments… and when I do I will share them with you.
Sonic Memo fits the bill.
Sonic Memo is an online audio system that allows you to add audio to your website in minutes. And best of all it is a one time purchase vs. having to pay a monthly fee like many of the other audio systems out there… (and then having to continue to pay that monthly fee or lose your audio clips, ouch!)
Why would you want to add audio to your website?
Simple – its another way to connect with visitors to your site. Anything that breaks the silence of the internet can have an impact as it reaches people at another level.
You can use a short audio clip to welcome people to your website – or better yet, make them an offer they can’t refuse. You can also use audio clips as part of an ecourse or in your newsletter. Collect audio testimonials from people and put them online. Etc, etc…
Audio can help to build relationships and increase sales online, as long as you don’t sound like Donald Duck! 😉
Oh, and be sure to keep it short too… like most things online, people like it short and sweet. Go for a few minutes per clip, nothing more.
Want to give Sonic Memo a try? They don’t offer a trial version, however but they do offer a 100% money back guarantee.
On a techie scale of 1-10, I would say this is a 4… you do need to be able to record your own audio somehow (either through the microphone on your computer or with a digital recorder) and you may want to do some basic editing of audio files (there are a number of free options you can download to do this).
Enjoy! And for those who try it, let me know what you think?
