I have a favor to ask. A Christmas wish, if you like.
As you probably know, we have a video podcast on iTunes. One of the best ways to advertise a podcast is to get it to “float to the top” in the iTunes directory. In order for that to happen for Postcard Valet, we need to have a few ratings (more than 25, I think.) Now, we have no illusions that Postcard Valet will top the charts or anything, but it sure would be nice if it were to show up on the first page of search results in the travel podcast section!
So, if you’d like to give Oksana and me a wonderful – and super simple! – Christmas preset, head on over to our iTunes page, click “View in iTunes,” and rate our podcast for us! I’ll bet it’ll take you under a minute (maybe five if you want to leave us some constructive criticism, too)…
For those that take the time to do this for us, I would love to send you a South American thank you postcard in return; just email me your address afterwards and I’ll get right on it!
A couple notes:
If you don’t have iTunes installed, it’s a free download from Apple.
After installing iTunes, you’ll have everything you need to subscribe to our podcast. New episodes will be delivered to iTunes as soon as we post them – you don’t even need to have an iPod or anything like that!
After iTunes is installed, subscribing to our podcast is as simple as clicking the following link: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=380887692
( If, for some reason, that doesn’t work, follow these directions:
1) Open iTunes
2) Click on the Advanced menu and select “Subscribe to Podcast…”
3) Copy and paste the same link into the box: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=380887692
4) Enjoy! )
And finally, you may have noticed a new Facebook widget in the sidebar over there on the right. The Postcard Valet Facebook page is Oksana’s new project and if we can 6 more people to “Like” the page – we’re at 19 now – it’ll unlock a few features (such as a custom URL) that she’s eager to implement. A click there would also be much appreciated!
