Happy World Radio Day!

 

Happy World Radio Day guys!

UNESCO has proclamed this festivity to celebrate Radio as a medium; to improve international cooperation between broadcaster; and to encourage major networks and community radio alike to promote access to information and freedom of expression over the airwaves.

We at Spreaker want to strongly promote the same ideals, to push the use of radio as a medium that reaches the widest audience worldwide, and help people engage in discussions and hot topics all over.

Just as UNESCO has stated, we want to encourage all countries to celebrate World Radio Day by planning activities in partnership with regional, national, and international broadcasters.

Follow #WorldRadioday, and record your own audio content in order to take part in the conversation all over the globe.

Tip of The Week: Choose Tags and Keywords While Scheduling Your Show

Often our hosts ask us how to catch the audience’s attention and bring more traffic to their shows’ pages. One of the best ways is focusing on the SEO, Search Engine Optimization. But, what does that mean?
When you are scheduling your show and you find the section “tags” under the Broadcast section, you probably ignore it and don’t think too much about it. But this area is actually very valuable because it increases the traffic sent to your show from the search engines.

In this post we will show you how you can attract more listeners thanks to some tricks and tips.

WHAT ARE TAGS?

A “tag” is a word or phrase that’s descriptive and specific to your show’s content, and should be the words that your audience will type into their search engine when trying to find your show. For instance if someone is searching for “Jazz Music”, the key phrase might be “Jazz Music Listen”. This search term will bring up all the websites offering Jazz Music online and all the websites using this phrasing.

HOW TO USE TAGS FOR YOUR SHOWS

You may want to do some research to find the most appropriate keywords for your show’s content.
We recommend you choose a list of relevant words associated with your content and use 3-4 tags for each show. Include them several times in the title and description, and try to keep it unique as well.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Remember that the better you’re spelling and grammar are, the more likely your keywords will actually work!
SEO is a good way to market your show so take it seriously and you will have some good resources to improve your audience.

Good luck!

Especially if you’re going live instead of podcasting.

The key message is be prepared. And this can be done easily if you follow the following simple steps
