How to Win $100

Online reviews for podcasts have huge influence on how podcatchers (iTunes and others) and their algorithms sort shows for listeners to discover. In particular, the iTunes store “New and Notable” list is a major kickstarter for any podcast that comes out of the gate with enough support to earn it’s way onto it. Your assistance could be the difference between Shadows of Pindus finding traction and languishing in obscurity.

I will draw randomly from all the reviews submitted to me by twitter @dsteelegm with the #sopindus hashtag, and by email at prize@shadowsofpindus.com, and check the drawn entry to be sure the review actually exists. As long as the review exists I’ll notify the lucky winner and arrange to get the gift certificate to them. If the review doesn’t exist, I’ll draw another.

The Steps to Enter are Easy!

  1. Find Shadows of Pindus in iTunes or your Podcast app, or follow this link and select “view in iTunes”
  2. Leave a rating and review for the show (make sure to copy the text of your review before you submit).
  3. Paste the text of your review into a tweet (@dsteelegm #sopindus) or into an email to prize@shadowsofpindus.com and send it along!
  4. You are entered! Draw is June 30.

Why am I banging on about iTunes?

Love it or hate it, there is no better way to raise a podcast’s profile than to raise it’s profile on iTunes. Google Play has no reviewing system (argh!), and Stitcher isn’t as influential, and the majority of other podcast apps refer to the iTunes store for all their recommendation algorithms anyways! What this means is, if you like a podcast, however you listen to it, one of the best things you can do to support the creator is to dig up (or sign up for) your apple id and leave an iTunes review.
