Do you get unsolicited email (also known as SPAM) that says “If you would like to be removed from our list, please reply with the word REMOVE in the subject line”. Well you really want to be careful about replying because you may be creating even more spam for yourself. You see, most spammers use that technique to find out if you really exist. Once they know that, they sell your email address to other spammers. So when I get emails like that I generally ignore them. Now if I get repeated emails from the same source and I feel are reputable enough to respect my wishes, then I will send one of those remove requests. I’ve noticed that in almost every occasion when I don’t reply, I don’t get any repeat emails from unethical spammers. Follow this simple tip and you’ll keep spam in your musubi instead of your email inbox.
Spokesperson Todd Cochrane says, what is significant is that this is the very first multi-podcast sponsorship deal. This agreement is a large win for our members and the techpodcasts.com network. A significant amount of work lead to getting to this day, with the network barely being 6 months old it is evident that when like minded podcasters come together and build a branded network, along with developing a legal marketable framework, with the necessary statistics reporting, then by presenting a well laid out marketing plan, we were able to sign this sponsorship deal. This solidifies our ideals that “podcasters do the work, and indeed podcasters get paid”.
TechPodcasts.com is uniquely positioned to deliver the GoToMeeting.com message. More impressive in June the network reached 135,000 unique listeners, and saw record traffic of over 750,000 unique downloads among the 20 reporting affiliates.
This sponsorship is the perfect marketing fit, we have the technical audience, and we will be able to directly reach decision makers in the technical community. We look forward to a successful campaign and a long term relationship with GotoMeeting.com.
TechPodcasts.com is a network of independent audio content producers who have agreed to create child safe, educational content as well as work collectively to build the best collection of Technical Podcast available on the Internet.

Want to make your next business meeting a smash hit? I’ve got a red-hot tip. At your next meeting, bring a laptop and projector. Project the agenda document on the screen and use it to guide the meeting and to take notes as well. Make sure you take notes live, projected on the screen. This has a fantastic effect because everyone watches what you type and participates much more than usual. And since everyone is seeing the same thing at the same time any inaccuracies are corrected immediately. Now here’s the best part: when the meeting is over, all you do is simply email all this notes you took to everyone who’s there and you don’t have to writeup those tedious “meeting minutes” ever again. Try this at your next meeting and I guarantee you’ll never do it any other way ever again.
The next time you’re looking up a contact in Outlook, click somewhere on the right hand side window where your contacts are listed and slowly type the last name of the person you want find. Outlook will quickly start flipping through the contacts to match the letters you’re typing. This is the fastest way to search. Try it!
