SBA Upgrades Podcasting

SBA has upgraded its podcasts to offer additional resources to the nation’s entrepreneurs. The podcasts, available here, provide an introduction to a variety of small business topics, and provide useful business information and advice.

The newest podcast topics include Marketing to the Federal Government, Getting Your Small Business Ready for Tax Season and Online Reporting of Employee Wages. Existing podcasts for entrepreneurs are Is Entrepreneurship for You and Checklist for Starting a Business. New podcasts will be added regularly to provide insight and tips on such topics as downshifting in a slowing economy, going green and business plan development, along with programs for veterans and information to help entrepreneurs start, grow and succeed.

Each podcast delivers a broadcast quality recording that can now be downloaded through RSS feeds, in addition to portable media players and personal computers. RSS is a format for delivering regularly changing Web content, such as podcasts, that provides an easy way to keep up with news and information, and avoids searching for information on Web sites.

The podcasts are less than 10 minutes in length and feature expert interviews from government, industry and business professionals. SBA podcasts and other resources can be accessed online at www.sba.gov/tools/index.html.
