I recently found a new podcast solution called podplatform. The least expensive is $97 a month. They promise to upload a file and they deliver a link for your to promote. They also state on their website:
[content_box_grey width=”75%”]”Thats right; DETAILED reporting. iTunes, Stitcher, and Zune do not offer any statistical reporting.”[/content_box_grey]
The site is designed by John Lee Dumas who has the very successful Entrepreneurs on Fire podcast. He has done quite well in six months. However I feel for $97 you can spend your money more wisely, and for FREE you can get very detailed stats in stitcher (so to say they don't offer ANY statistics is just wrong).
They say they can format the mp3 file for you. Can you go into Microsoft Word, and choose “Save as..”? Well that's pretty much what you have to do save your mp3 file in the proper format. They offer you 225 minutes a month for $97. You can spend $20 (or less) a month and Libsyn and get detailed stats. That means you would save $924 a year. You can get a free month at Libsyn using the coupon sopfree. If you use blubrry.com they will add the id3 tags for you, and paste the link into your post automatically and provide stats for a lot less than $97 a month.
While I encourage John in his business, I feel that the services her provides can be found in other systems for a lot less money. If you'd like to learn all of these things, and save a lot of money, sign up for the School of Podcasting today
