Easy (eZ) Way to Add Audio to Your Webpages or Blog

If you aren’t using audios on your opt-in pages, sales pages and pretty much everywhere online, you are missing out! There’s a reason you see audios cropping up everywhere on the web – that’s because they work.

Visitors and customers like them, they provide a tiny glimpse into who you are (remember the ‘know, like and trust’ factor) because instead of just reading words, now they can also hear your voice.

And online marketers should like them for the same reasons! And also, because they are so easy to create and very, very simple to use.

We recently switched from hosting audios on our own site, and went to using Amazon’s S3 storage. It’s really inexpensive, and won’t slow your site down. We looked all over for a simple way to manage the audio files on Amazon S3, as well as to create those great little audio players to put on websites.

Make Adding Audio to Your Site EASY

We looked at various products that we could have purchased and put on our computers, but then we were restricted to uploading and managing files from that one or two computers. We finally decided to try a subscription service called eZs3 that makes this so very simple.

We love it so much we are willing to spend the $20 a month it costs to use this. It must save me hours in getting our audios up on our sites.

Here’s a 12 minute video showing you how we used eZs3 to upload an audio to AmazonS3, create a player, put the player on our webpage, upload the page to our site and test it out. If I can do that in 12 minutes while explaining things, imagine how fast this can be when you are just doing it yourself!

If you like what you see, we invite you to use our affiliate link when you subscribe to eZs3.

    Thanks for the valuable tip. I have been doing it manually on my S3 account. You satisfy the aural sensation as well as the visual with this great idea.

    Thank you for sharing how easy this is. I have one question: What software do you use to create your audios? Please let me know the link to the program you use. Thanks much!

      Hi Kathryn,
      We do our audios two ways. We have Audacity (free download at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ ) for simple audio-only. It’s also a great audio editor. However, many of our audios we create using Camtasia Studio, which is a paid program for doing screen capture videos. If we only want the audio, we record a tiny area on our screen (video) while saying what we want on the audio. Then we choose the ‘Save Audio As’ option instead of creating a whole video, and only the audio is created. Hope that makes sense. You can check out Camtasia at http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.asp – I have it for both PC and Mac, and I really prefer the PC version.

      Thanks, Kathleen! We switched over to AmazonS3 with eZs3, and it has been so much easier to get audio and video onto our blog, websites, opt-in pages and sales pages. I wonder now why we waited so long! ;-D
