TPN Roundtable 03-28-12 iTunes RSS Changes – Royalty Free Music

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSiTunes has changed up their RSS requirements due to the 3rd generation iPad resolutions. Now, you must have 1200×1200 album art, amongst other requirements added to the iTunes tag. Todd Cochrane talk about these new requirements and how you should update your album artwork ASAP. If you listen to podcasts or watch video shows, you probably hear the music in the background. You might be watching another show, and that same music shows up. This is most likely royalty free music – something you purchase to use for video content. It can enhance a podcast and bring a wall of sound, so the listeners enjoy your show a little more. Jeffrey Powers talks about some places you can go to get royalty free music, things to watch out for when you purchase a track, and how your can make your own...

If I had the Power to do More [Video]

While at SXSW, I was interviewed by Dell, and asked what would I do if I had the power to do more. A pretty interesting question, because I had to reply with a clarification – Is that a Lex Luthor power to take over the world, or a Superman power to save the world. I said that I would like to help people build their craft, while I also did the same. By helping people, I feel I have contributed in building the blogging and podcasting community. Being a citizen journalist, I can show people what goes on at places like SXSW, and other big events. Thanks to Dell for the video! See the other video questions asked at SXSW!

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWhile at SXSW, I sat down with Sonicbids – the online Electronic Press Kit (EPK). I was first introduced to Sonicbids around 10 years ago when the company came on the scene. I even signed up for the beta! Fast forward to 2012, and Sonicbids is still running strong. With over 26,00 promoters and over 100,000 gigs booked in 2011, Sonicbids has been working social media before the term was coined. Sonicbids can help people find gigs in cities they don’t live in. For example – if you are in New York, and you plan a trip to San Francisco, you can put up your EPK on Sonicbids, then network with other bands and promoters to find places to play and promote your band. I sit down and talk with Tess at Sonicbids to find out about what Sonicbids is doing...
