3. Load up photos to Animoto and load up the .mp3 file instead of music
4. Upload the .mp3 to Buzzsprout or PodBean and start a podcast channel
5. Upload snippets to your blog.

7. Transcribe the video and you’ve got 77 more ways you can use it.
8. Make the interview an opt-in prize for visitors to your blog.
