If you have a podcast, then this week’s Cool Tech of the Week is a must-have, it’s Rate This Podcast
The Tech Smart Boss Podcast has been on pause for a while, but we do have an archive of over 130 episodes you can check out in your favorite podcast player or here
. One thing you always hear me repeat at the beginning and end of the later shows is a request for people to go out and leave us a rating and review on iTunes. Not only does it give the podcast creator great feedback, but it’s actually the best way to get others to discover your podcast.
Only a small percentage of listeners will typically take action, and I had a few contact me to say how difficult it was to leave a rating on Apple (it’s a confusing process).
Rate This Podcast helps with both of these issues. First they give you a branded URL that is easy to say, easy for listeners to remember, to go leave a rating and review. Second, they list all the possible rating places and give users a 1-click way to get there. Lastly, they give the user step-by-step instructions on what they need to do. Brilliant.
And they give you a little embed object you can put on your blog or podcast
page to also give users a button to click and rate your podcast.
Check it out today, I call it a must-have if you have a podcast, this week’s Cool Tech of the Week, Rate This Podcast.
