Corporate Podcasts are emerging as exciting and revolutionary alternate medium and is sweeping across the globe. Many of the Corporates in US, UK and other European countries have started using podcasts for promoting their brand image and positioning their pdocuts and services.

In the developing countries like India, there is lack of awareness amongst the corporates on this new medium. Public Relations Agencies and Advertisement Agencies need to relook into their strategies and effectively use 'Corporate Podcasts' for their clients. Corporate Podcasts will function as 'formidable ally' to the other channels.
