Podcasting with ReadyTalk II: Distribution

In the first part of this series, I described how you can use the ReadyTalk service to make a podcast and generate a feed URL. In this segment, I will give you tips on how to use that URL to distribute your podcast.

The very first thing I recommend you do with your podcast feed URL is to burn it. Without going into too much detail, submit your feed URL to Feedburner and then read about all the things it can do for you here. Feedburner is an essential tool for anyone looking to distribute content and best of all it is free!

After submitting your feed to Feedburner, you will receive a unique URL that will look something like this http://feeds.feedburner.com/nameofyourpodcast. Use this URL on your website and to distribute your podcast to the directories. Podcasting News has a great list of podcast directories available. Each directory is unique in its own way and may cater towards one type of content over another. I suggest you do some research into the different directories and decide which ones you wish to submit your podcast too. As an exercise, I did some research in Google on podcast directories. I got these five from the first page:


  • iTunes

  • Yahoo! Podcasts

  • Podcastdirectory.com

  • Odeo

  • Podcast Alley

 

Do some research on your own and you will never know what you turn up. Remember the more targeted you can be with your distribution the better chance you have of being heard over the noise.

This concludes the second part of the ReadyTalk podcast series. Stay tuned for the third part where I will give you tips on how to promote your podcast.
