CHERRY HILL, NJ – January 5, 2010 – The New Jersey Bank Marketing Committee, a trade association representing marketing professionals in the New Jersey banking industry, is distributing a new series of video podcast programs from the group’s annual “Forecast 2010” program.
The NJ Bank Marketing Committee has been distributing podcasts since March 2005, initially in audio form, and since 2008 as video programs. The podcasts are produced in partnership with Cherry Hill-based Professional Podcasts LLC, a subsidiary of Lubetkin Communications.
The newest NJBA podcast is available in three segments. Part one of the podcast program features a presentation by Raymond Hallock, president and CEO of Columbia Bank, Fair Lawn, NJ. Part two features remarks by Thomas X. Geisel, president and CEO of Sun National Bank, and part three features the presentation by Paul K. Napoli, retired vice chairman, U.S. Trust Corporation.
“Our podcasts average between 300 and 600 downloads, so it’s clear that our members want us to provide time-shifting technology like podcasting for their continuing education activities,” said Dennis Kane, Director of Marketing, Amboy Bank, and chairman of the Bank Marketing Committee. “Podcasting is a cost-effective and engaging way for our members to participate in these programs, even if they cannot attend in person.”
“For five years now, the New Jersey Bank Marketing Committee has been a visionary organization, far ahead of other financial trade associations in New Jersey by embracing podcasting technology to increase the reach of its excellent seminar programs,” said Steven L. Lubetkin, managing partner of Professional Podcasts. “Audio and video podcasts can provide important information conveniently to clients, members, and other constituencies. Podcasts don’t force those audiences to use less-flexible programming formats like conference calls or web streams, which require busy and time-constrained participants to gather at a common time. Podcast viewers get the information they need — at a time when they want it.”
The video programs are also available at no charge to subscribers to the Apple iTunes Music store (www.itunes.com) and can be accessed directly in iTunes at this URL:
Interested viewers can also subscribe to NJ Bank Marketing podcasts through an RSS Feed at http://feeds.feedburner.com/NJBAPodcasts. There is no cost to subscribe to an RSS feed.
Finally, viewers can watch the videos in the players attached at the end of this news release.
In addition to their educational value, the NJ Bank Marketing podcasts also provide a sponsorship opportunity to organizations interested in reaching the podcast audience. More information about sponsoring the podcasts is available from Professional Podcasts.
