I’d like to start this shameless plea with a big thanks to all you loyal listeners out there, as both Sam and I have been thrilled with the positive response so far. One of the challenges in making a podcast is getting the word out there that we exist, and this is where we could use your help. Keep reading for some ways you can help get the word out, if you’re so inclined.
First and foremost is to just tell your friends. If you know people who are interested in movies, let them know that we’d be happy to have them listen. If you have a personal Web site, give us a link. If you linked to us using a phrase like “movie podcast” as part of the link text, that would also help us be more prominent in relevant search results. You can feel free to use the AMT logo, and if you want a differently sized logo, just drop Stephen a line.
Another great way is to subscribe to our podcast through the iTunes store. You can do it on Windows or on Mac by downloading the free iTunes software and then visit our iTunes page and subscribe. By subscribing through iTunes, you help increase our rank in the iTunes listings. You can also write a review there if you’re so inclined.
We’re also hip to a new site called PopCurrent that aims to promote all sorts of media, including podcasts. It functions sort of like Digg, where users can vote on what new links are cool. We have a page up for Episode 4 and if you could go there, sign up for an account, and “Pop” us, it will help promote the show to other people. While you’re there, check out the site as there are a lot of other cool podcasts, videos, and other media files. We’re planning on having links to our PopCurrent episodes each week, so you may want to give us a Pop each Tuesday after you listen to the show.
If you have any other ideas about how we can help get the word out, please feel free to comment.
