When creating a podcast, before you even publish it live to the internet, itunes or anywhere else, make sure to create a short 15 to 30 second promo for your show.


Creating a short promo will allow your podcast to get into the itunes store early, before your actual show's launch date which will allow you to go live with your very first podcast without any barriers to being discovered on itunes. 


Because you submitted your show early, the approval process will be completed before you publish your first episode. When your first episode is published, your itunes podcast page will have already been approved and your show will be immediately searchable in itunes as well as any other podcast directories you have submitted your show to (e.g. Zune, Miro). 


In case you didn't know, getting your show listed in itunes requires an approval process. Sometimes the process can take as little as half an hour but in most cases it can be days or even weeks before someone listens or watches your show and makes sure it meets requirements (valid feed, appropriate show art, etc) set out by Apple and the itunes store. So get your show submitted early, before you publish your very first episode and when you are ready to go live, your show will be ready to be found on itunes.

Use twitter to get more mileage out of your content by tweeting about the various topics covered during an episode. For example, if on your most recent episode you talked about three different topics, you essentially should break up those topics into their own individual tweets. By doing so, you will be able to tweet about the same show, including a link URL three different times, however each tweet will be about a different topic that you covered within your episode.

This is a good way to expose your followers to the various topics you talked about on any one show. Often times we are not able to tell the listener every topic we talked about in our episode within the title of the episode. Doing so would lead to titles that were much too long.

By breaking up your topics into individual tweets, you let your friends on twitter know exactly what was covered on your show in its entirety. Often times someone might not be interested in listening to any given episode because the title of the episode only represents a portion of what you talked about and that portion might not be interesting to every listener. This way however, the listeners get to learn about topics that perhaps are interesting to them but might not have been mentioned in the title of the episode. In this way, you are not spamming your followers so much as you are giving them more detail about each show you produce. Remember to include a link to the episode mentioned.

Also, since tweets have a short shelf life (most followers don't see each tweet) this gives your friends more chance they'll actually see that you have a new episode published. Give it a shot and let me know how it works for you. Thanks for listening.

How long does it take before a podcast RSS feed is accepted into the itunes store once you have submitted it?

When you've submitted your podcast to itunes and its not showing up in the itunes catalog, many podcasters start to worry that they did something wrong. So what do you do once you have submitted your RSS feed to itunes but it's not showing up in the itunes store?

The answer is patience. In order to make sure your podcast has been submitted and is in the process of being reviewed, make sure you received the confirmation email that tells you that indeed your podcast RSS feed has been submitted to itunes. You should receive this email shortly after you submit your valid podcast feed.

Wait times for getting your podcast approved can be as long as 3 weeks or as quick as 30 minutes. Once your podcast has been reviewed by someone at apple (yes someone actually looks and/or listens to your podcast) you will receive an email telling you that your podcast has been accepted and the same email will contain very important information about your show such as links that you can use to find your show on the web and on itunes.

Make sure you save this email and archive it somewhere you will remember and access easily because almost certainly you will be looking for it again to use the important information contain within the email about your show.
