In this installment, Krystal & Elsie try out Blab to host Libsyn Live. Opening the two open seats up as hotseats to the podcast community, these ladies field questions of all kinds!
Installment 18 of Libsyn Live is going to be a fun roundtable discussion about Podcast Movement, the Podcasting Community at large, and more. and will be joined this month by Libsyn’s own VP of Podcaster Relations, and by the awesome from the Podcasters’ Studio and the Podcasters’ Roundtable.
This will still be a Q&A Format, so bring your podcasting related questions and any comments on Podcast Movement.
Libsyn unveiled the new Libsyn WordPress Plugin (BETA) and showed it’s setup and operation live. If you’ve ever wanted to take advantage of all Libsyn has to offer with the comfort of posting from your WordPress site, watch on!
Did you hear the news?
There is now a New Spotify and in addition to some pretty nifty features, it also supports podcasts!
And Libsyn has partnered with the awesome service to help them populate the platform with your podcasts.
A few weeks ago, Soundcloud dropped the beta from their podcasting offering and there have been a lot of questions from podcasters about whether or not Soundcloud is a good option for their podcast.
Have you wondered what the differences are between Soundcloud and Libsyn?
The Libsyn team descended on NMX with microphones and web cams, prepared to bring Libsyn Live… live. Krystal chats it up with David Jackson from The School of Podcasting, Jason Bryant from Mat Talk, and Rosemary Nickel from Motivating Other Mom’s.
We answer that question on this episode of Libsyn Live!
Not only do we (Krystal O’connor from the support team and Elsie Escobar – moi – Social Media Community Manager) go deep into whether or not you should or should not attempt to get your audio podcast onto iTunes…
Krystal does a stellar job of walking you through four different platforms and software to use to convert your audio podcast into a video file so you can upload it to YouTube!
If you ever wondered how to cross-post your audio podcast into YouTube, this is the Libsyn Live for you!
NOTE: The audio for the Elsie side of the conversation is pretty AWFUL. Krystal was unable to use headphones so there is a lot of echo from her side #sorry
BUT, Krystal does do most of the talking so it’s totally doable. I was able to make it through to write these shownotes
Since we started Libsyn Live we have had a lot questions about HOW to set up a Google Hangout on Air from other podcasters.
Krystal decided to give you exactly what you asked for!
She had recently done an amazing session at Podcamp Pittsburgh. You can watch ithere.
BUT she also decided to do it again just for our people!
Take a looksie, it’s a step by step for you guys.
This episodes stemmed from the types of questions that we often get both individually and at Libsyn support regarding iTunes search results as well as that coveted New & Noteworthy status.
▸ We debunk myths – particularly the New & Noteworthy myths (IT’S NOT 8 WEEKS PEOPLE!!!)
▸ We dive into what really helps you show up on search results in iTunes. The exact algorithm revealed (or as close to exact as we can.)
▸ Website SEO, podcast stats, definition of what download numbers mean and how to cross reference your numbers to see what they mean.
@libsyn Thanks Rob! #Libsyn has rocked my podcast mp3 hosting since August of 2005.
