A few free ways to support Sounds Familiar.
* Update 6/12: Thanks to everybody who’s helped so far. There’s been a tremendous amount of support and everyone has just been awesome.
If you haven’t taken the listener survey yet, it takes about two minutes to complete. You can do that here.
Sounds Familiar is a completely free podcast. If you like the podcast and want to help out, there are a few quick (and, again, free) things you can do. You’re likely doing a few of these things already, so if you’ve got a minute and could do one or two others, that’s all it takes. Your support and feedback make the show better!
1) Subscribe in iTunes (and write a review). iTunes is still sort of a standard for podcasts, and being popular on iTunes helps your podcast make it onto all the Apple devices all the kids are toting these days. Subscriptions help out, but a review really does the trick. A quick, positive review on iTunes goes a long way, and it’s probably the most useful way to help the podcast out.
2) Follow Sounds Familiar on other social networks. Most people follow on Tumblr or Facebook, but I’ve strategically placed the podcast in a bunch of places on the internet. Here are links to the various pages, if you regularly hang out at any of these sites, click through and give it a quick ‘follow:’
3) Tell your friends! I mean “friends” in the broadest sense of the term. If you have online friends on the above-mentioned network, then sharing the podcast with them is immensely helpful. And if your friends in the real world talk about podcasts, maybe you could bring mine up.
…that’s about it. It’s simple stuff, it doesn’t cost you money and it won’t take up a lot of your time, but it helps me know that the podcast I devote pretty much all my time to (I do everything myself, from writing and recording to editing and promoting) is actually reaching someone.
