Just sit around the podcast industry for a week or two and it’s a matter of time until the next big thing comes along. From discovery, to search, to premium services…it can be daunting as newcomers (newpods) venture to dabble within the industry.
Here at TopPodast.com, we don’t require anyone to register or log-in, AND WE DON’T CHARGE podcasters, publishers, networks or advertisers to gain access to our site.
AN OPEN NETWORK FOR UNBIASED DISCOVERY
Our objective is to promote an open network for newcomers to explore the entire industry, not just a select list of shows. Sites that charge advertisers and content creators for access are devaluing the industry. Ultimately, they provide little or no value and ultimately may lead to unbiased advertising practices by steering advertisers to shows that are listed (pay-to-play).
Bottom line, new podcasters and independents should never pay to be listed on any podcast discovery site…EVER! That is, unless they are paying for hosting and additional services administered by a host provider.
OUR GOLDEN RULE: UNBIASED ADVOCATE OF AN OPEN NETWORK
INDEPENDENT PODCASTERS , PUBLISHERS, NETWORKS: AND ADVERTISERS: There is no need to ‘REGISTER or PAY’ to be listed on any ‘industry discovery’ website. Most importantly, advertisers should never feel compelled to pay upfront for any podcast search platform, as the host-site will have unbiased perceptions of shows that are ‘paying to play’ in their search network.
IT’S HARD ENOUGH FOR INDEPENDENT PODCASTERS
New independent podcasters/shows should never be required to pay to be listed on a ‘search site’. If you decide to do so, you are doing it at your own risk…and most likely wasting your money while lining someone elses pockets. Trust us, there are more advantageous ways to be discovered and promote your show, rather than promoting yourself on a website that gets no traffic.
Bottom line, if you’re ‘hit up’ to ‘pay to be a part of a discovery network’, you’re probably wasting your money.
ADVERTISERS NEED NOT WORRY ABOUT REGISTERING or PAYING EITHER
