CHERRY HILL, NJ – July 13, 2009 – Cherry Hill-based Professional Podcasts’ managing partner, Steve Lubetkin, is now available to conduct one- or two-day training workshops for clients in effective use of social media for business marketing and public relations.

Professional Podcasts has pioneered the use of audio podcasts as a business visibility tool, and Lubetkin is invited to speak frequently about social media before organizations including the NJ Bankers Association, the US State Department, PRSA chapters, and other groups.

“We have been encouraging businesses to understand and embrace social media tools for nearly five years now," Lubetkin said. "We strongly believe that audio and video programs distributed as podcasts work hand in hand with social media like blogs, online networks and microblogging tools like Twitter as valuable tools in the corporate communications professional’s arsenal of distribution channels for business information, so it’s a logical next step to offer our expertise to organizations that want to train their personnel to understand and employ these tools."

Professional Podcasts training workshop program is offered in a one-day or a two-day format tailored to the needs of your organization. More information is available on request to
