Imagine your restaurant client talking into his iPhone or Android: "Hey, everybody. For the next two hours, buy any burger, fries and soft drink at regular price and get a second burger FREE! That's just for our Facebook friends and only until 2 pm today at Burger Barn."
Sixty seconds later, his audio "coupon" appears on his Facebook page. All his Facebook friends have to do is click PLAY and they get to hear his message, just as he recorded it.
Welcome to Audioboo, a new service from the U.K. that is about to explode all over the Internet.
Did I mention it's FREE?
You need to open an Audioboo account now. Trust me.
You need to introduce your advertisers to Audioboo. Show them how to integrate their on-air and online radio advertising with their social media. Show them how to make Audioboo coupons. They're going to learn this eventually anyway, might as well be now - and from you!
This is positively HUGE for radio stations, radio producers, anyone who uses audio, whether for business, socializing, or just for fun.
Audio content (in a variety of standard formats) can be uploaded via iPhone or Android, or from any Internet-connected personal computer with a microphone and sound card, and you can upload pre-recorded material as well.
Want to share your latest radio commercials with the world? Audioboo them.
Want to extend your clients' radio buys on social networks? Audioboo them.
Want to sing "Happy Birthday" to a Facebook friend. Yup.
Honestly, the implications are staggering - at least to this 38-year radio ad guy.
Man, Tony Schwartz should have lived to see this day!
Go get your Audioboo account now. You'll thank me for suggesting it. All I ask in return is that you come back and share how you're using it, OK?

Thanks to my friend Doug Zanger for turning me on to Audioboo. (And for bringing my Whispering Hills radio spots to life with his great interpretative skills and voice!)
