Don’t fall for all the “launch” strategies that people are trying to sell you. Just “START” your podcast.
To get into iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and other places, you only need 1 podcast episode in your feed. Not 3, 5, 7 or whatever, just one. START your podcast and don’t LAUNCH it.
Shownotes are anything in this part of my post. Wherever you are seeing this, this is the show notes.
They are the main content area in your blog post.
Podcasting is just Blogging with media. So, no matter how you are doing your RSS feed, you are blogging. To get an episode you make a post. What you write in the main content area of that post, is your Show Notes.
Blubrry Podcasting has released Post to Social so you can post your episodes to Social Media (YouTube, Facebook and Twitter) from your Podcaster Dashboard at blubrry.com
See the announcement here: http://www.powerpresspodcast.com/2016/12/13/5327/

My friend Steve launched his podcast today after being on local radio for 10 years in this area and 25 years total elsewhere. I think it’s great when Passonate radio guys discover podcasting. It makes for an interesting show.

Just make content, do your own thing and promote it. The rest will come.
Rebranding your show is something you can do as a podcaster if your show changes topic a bit, or you just get tired of the name. This podcast was rebranded with this episode. It’s not Podcast Quick Hits – By PHD. It will likely just be Podcast Quick Hits soon, but that’s what I did here.
I changed the artwork int he feed, and the title of the feed and it took about 8 hours for iTunes to pick up the change. And I’m going to watch the other directories and see how long that took, but I figure in 3 days, everyone will have the change.
In this Quick Hit, I talk about Streaming vs. Downloading podcasts.
Downloading a podcast and listening to it “streaming” on your phone (or pressing play on the player above) are really the same thing.
Also, check out this video of Tom Webster talking about podcasting for the next 10 years.
Today I talk about podcast directories and how you should be everywhere. Not just iTunes.

Since episode 2 of Quick Hits, things have changed in the category podcasting world with PowerPress.
I’ve changed my tune a bit and think that Category Podcasting is OK now. Still not as easy as single site / Single podcast podcasting, but very useable. If you want to have more than one RSS feed from your WordPress site, category podcasting is now the way to go.
