18: Allan Tépper and guest Angelo Mandato discuss the power of WebSub and new features in PowerPress 8. We also discuss Allan Tépper’s latest ebook, Branded RSS podcasting: the definitive guide.
This new ebook is now available via BrandedRSS.com as well as on all Amazon stores worldwide. Although the list price is US$22, for a limited time, you can get purchase it directly from me at BrandedRSS.com for only US$11.
Whose domain is in your RSS feed: yours or somebody else’s? Of course, it should only be yours. And the domain registrar should be completely independent from your hosting company or hosting companies. Otherwise, the conflict of interest that would arise upon any dispute or sudden expulsion would be like hiring your spouse —a lawyer— to represent you in your own divorce. The only way to be absolutely sure to retain existing podcast subscribers is to own your domain and use it as the basis of your RSS feed. This new ebook explains why RSS is essential for syndication on platforms like Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, RadioPublic, Stitcher, TuneIn and more, and why it must be totally under your own control. This new ebook also compares 4 options where you can accomplish all of this on a single server, be it a marketed “podcast host” or a standard website host, including the costs, primary advantages and disadvantages of each.
