Be a Better Podcaster #4.1 – Production Gaps, Media Hosting and iTunes

Play

This week I’m talking about ways to handle long breaks between episodes, media hosting options and getting into iTunes.

I open the show with an explanation of QAQN: Rebirth, which is a method I’m using to reboot my podcasts and bring in new listeners. It coincides with a long gap between episodes, and when you’re looking at a gap of weeks between shows, there are a few ways you can get back into the groove.

My first voicemail this week comes from Jim Beeghley. Jim is curious about using Libsyn.com vs. GeekCast.fm for hosting, and I offer my thoughts on those two services. Each has strengths and drawbacks, and I’m very happy and content to use both.

The second call-in is from Nick Chertock, who would like some advice for getting into (and getting noticed in) iTunes. I explain the basics of the PowerPress plugin for WordPress and stress the importance of a properly-formatted feed. Your feed can carry a lot of information, not all of which is necessary (or used at all) by iTunes.

Have a question? Want to learn more about podcasting? Ask me anything! Leave a voicemail at 281-241-QAQN(7276), send an email to feedback@qaqn.com, or catch me on Twitter.

Just to sweeten the pot a little bit… anyone that leaves a voicemail that I use on the show will be entered into a drawing at the end of the month for an absolutely free one-hour podcast consulting session with me.
