Mailing List For Podcast
You may be wondering why you might need to have an e-mail subscription list for your podcast. Think about it, you already have an RSS feed that people can subscribe to, so I would you need an e-mail list?
E-mail lists are extremely important for promoting your podcast. While you may think that an RSS feed will be the best way to get your podcast to people who are interested in it, many people might not subscribe to your RSS feed because they have limited space on my computer or MP3 player.
It's also possible that they just don't want the commitment of having your podcast automatically broadcasted to them every time you do an update or a new episode. However, subscribing to an e-mail list is less permanent.
The potential listener can choose to ignore the e-mail when new updates come or can choose to check out your podcast again and see what new episodes are available. He or she has the opportunity to easily unsubscribe to your lists from anywhere at any time even if he or she is not at the computer from which he or she originally subscribe to e-mail us. The potential listener does not even need to open the program as which are used to download the RSS feeds in order to cancel them.
This type of list is extremely interesting and important for the success of your podcast because it gives you and method by which to communicate with your past listeners which you would not otherwise have had without the list. Always make sure that any money you send out your e-mail list includes information on how to unsubscribe team the list so that users can choose to do this at any time. You can also use a program such as Bloglet or Feedblitz which can handle most of the publishing hassle so you can instead focus on your podcast and on the text you include in your e-mail update.
