Today, I took a few moments to publicize a podcast, I realized I hadn’t taken advantage of all the tools out there to get the job done. So, while I’m sure others have recounted the best ways to publicize a podcast and get it “out there,” here is my journey of exploration. I had simple criteria: 1) Easy and short; 2) Requires no account creation/money/MP3 promo clips; and 3) Not snobby. If you know of any others I missed, please be sure to share in the comments!
Of course, I’m not sure how successful these will be. I’ll try to report back in a month or two and see if the TechLearning.com TechTips podcast has lots of subscribers or not!
