Ep.37 – Ding, Dong! Your Show’s Home!
Tim and Kyle talk about your need to have a podcast website and how getting creative can help you land a good domain name.
Episode at a Glance
- Every podcast needs a home website
- Finding an available Top Level Domain (TLD) is tough
- Branding maturity is part of growing your podcast
- Start small and improve over time
What did we learn?
- All of the good domain names are taken or owned by cybersquatters
- Creative domain name suffixes, spellings, or DOT something else can be good alternatives
- Easy to spell, say, or even remember is important
- Your podcast show name, website name, and email address should all align
- Brands, websites, and emails can all be out of sync at first, but you can improve them over time
- Tim missed out on doing something with “Myopic Cyber-Squatters DOT COM”
“People build you into their lives.”
— Todd Cochrane, CEO, Blubrry Podcasting
“If you can be consistent, it will add 20-percent to your numbers and you will grow.”
— Matt Cundil
