Alright, I have to stop writing these past 11 at night!

Today is December 12th, 2013, 24 days after the launch of my podcast.

I have 5 interviews scheduled over the next 3 days. With my Holiday Blues episodes coming up, and my Finding Your Passion special also coming (working titles), I am going to be whipped for the next week and a half. It’s going to be brutal! But, it’s a labor of love, that’s for sure.

After Christmas, I will start adding video intros to my podcast pages. My lighting and backdrop (affiliate links, why not!) arrived, so I’m stoked about starting that project. I am creating my Content Trifecta, as Pat Flynn puts it:

Video for visual people.
Podcasts for auditory people.
Blogs for readers.

It’s going to enhance my presence online, and start driving more traffic to both my website and podcast.  I’ll have so much more time after Christmas and throughout January, that I’ll finally be able to put in place all the ideas I’ve been thinking about. Plus, I’ll be able to schedule people during the day, which will be so much easier since almost all of my guests are in different time zones!

Let’s jump right into the current iTunes New and Noteworthy rankings:

  • All of New and Noteworthy: #30 (#29 yesterday)
  • Health New and Noteworthy: #1 (#3 yesterday)
  • Business New and Noteworthy: #2 (#2 yesterday)
  • Education New and Noteworthy: #2 (#2 yesterday)

The show is really loving that #30 area. Keeps it’s position there quite a bit.
However, I’m loving the 1, 2, 2 position! Yes, I have to admit, I still get amazed that something I created is right there at the top, with exposure to millions of people every day. Just amazed. 

So let’s check out what percentage of those millions are actually downloading the show.

Recent download stats from libsyn are:

  • Dec 6: 271 downloads
  • Dec 7: 286 downloads
  • Dec 8: 586 downloads
  • Dec 9: 694 downloads
  • Dec 10: 615 downloads
  • Dec 11: 733 downloads
  • Dec 12: 656 downloads

Total downloads to date:  11,137 (was 10,473 yesterday)

Eleven thousand plus! This past week has been the best one yet. Phenomenal.

I have a couple very, very cool posts coming up soon. One post will contain some truly golden information on how and where to land guests for your show, and the other will be my 30 Days In Review post. I will go over the last 30 days and show trends, graphs, the works! Should be a lot of fun.

Oh, special shout outs to Trevor and Kimberly who’ve been commenting like mad on these posts! Thank you for your awesomeness.

Stay tuned…

    Congratulations on continued download success and thanks for sharing what you’ve purchased for video. Have you chosen a camera yet? I’m guessing you’ll be posting the intros to YouTube? Great way to “be everywhere!”

    I look forward to your big future post. I love stats as well but there are so many variables in podcasting that it’s hard to see trends sometimes. On top of that, there are anomalies sometimes — kind of like your 1200 download day. I have several episodes of my existing podcast that got a ton of downloads a couple years after they were released. I have no clue why but gratefully accept it. 🙂

    • Yes! youtube for sure. The vids will link back to my site. I’ve been linking to my site more and more now, instead of directly to iTunes. I want that to be the central hub for all traffic, then it gets distributed.

      I have a cheap $160 HD camera. It’s a Panasonic HC-V110. We’ll see how it looks in good lighting. So far, everything I’ve recorded in the house has been dark and yellow. It’s not the camera though. There are high quality HD vids online taken with an iPhone camera! So, I know mine must have a better chance of looking fantastic.

      That’s amazing. I forgot you had podcasts out there. Are you going to pick up where you left off with those? Or, are you going in a different direction? I think I remember saying you were changing subject matter.

      Now to figure out how to convert downloads to dollars…
