Twitter is now the biggest, fastest way to spread a message. In our recent Once Upon a Time Fan Podcast survey, one of the top two ways that people are discovery this podcast is that is was Retweeted by one of their followers. Retweeting is the cheapest and fastest way to help us grow our podcast listener audience.
Growing our audience isn’t just an ego thing, it will open doors for awesome offerings for the podcast in the future.
We know that ABC Publicity is watching, and the more we grow our audience, the easier it will be for us to acquire Media Passes and access to cast interviews, etc. So, you can help us get what you, the OUAT Fans want – more access to the show we all love.
So, this is what we ask of you – be an active part of our ReTweeter Club. If you are following is on Twitter (and if not, you really should be), whenever you see a Tweet from the @ouatpodcast or the @OUATPCDeputies accounts, please ReTweet them. This will help us so much spread the word about our (all of us) podcast.
If you want to be a part of our OUAT Fan Podcast, please leave your name in the comments and let us know you will be ReTweeting.
So, I used to travel alot to Texas and I remember a syndicated morning news show with a very funny weather guy, Mitch English:
Note: He’s the guy on the left.
Mitch is very funny. I think I said that already. Here is a promo the made for him:
Anyway, Mitch is a Once Upon a Time fan, and has has included links to our Storybrooke Street page in his paper.li Tweets, and this week he linked to a number of our blog posts (Thanks again to the Deputy Desk for being awesome!):
Mitch, I am humbled (and incredibly stoked!) that you would link to our posts. You are are very funny, first class and kind dude. Thanks so much for being you. Myself and the Once Upon a Time Fan Podcast send big love to you and wish you the best of luck to all you do!
Now, readers of this post, please make yourself aware of the Daily Buzz News show (http://dailybuzznation.com/) and please follow Mitch English (@mitchenglish) and let him know the @ouatpodcast sent ya!
Sorry, OUAT fans but I’m going to use one blog post to get geeky. Here are my proven ways to get your podcast in the Top 10 of Itunes. Now, I’m not selling a book, but I am open to be interviewed about it (Just sayin’).
Now, how to get your podcast in the Itunes Top 10 (This is not any type of guarantee for everyone. However, this worked for me).
10. Podcast. Just do it. You can read, listen, go to expos (paying lots of money to listen), etc, but until you get into the fray, you will never learn. Failures are just paths you know don’t work for you.
9. Find a niche subject that you are passionate about. Notice I said “Niche” subject. I used to podcast about “Whatever I wanted to talk about,” and though it was great for me, there weren’t thousands of people that waited with baited breath to hear every word out of my mouth. Heck, my wife doesn’t want to hear everything I want to talk about.
Like I said, find a niche subject. Not “all TV shows,” but pick a TV show to focus completely on. Not “all movies,” but pick one movie or saga/trilogy and focus on that.
