As we close out the end of our first year together, we wanted to take some time to thank you for your continued listening and patronage. So … thanks, for making our first season of off-color reviews in subversive film and media so worth it!
We’d like to thank you on this Black Friday, for opening your Podcast apps as you travel from shop to shop (or browser tab to browser tab).
You can see in our listener stats overview that we’ve reached parity of listens for Part 1 of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” when compared to listens for Tim Burton’s “Batman Returns”. You’re amazing! Thanks for venturing into the woods with us, and into more rebel encampments.
Also, with the addition of “Pan’s Labyrinth”, we have also had over 100 listens! Woohoo for you! Woohoo for everyone.
Want to help boost our signal? Use your sharing thumbs to let your friends know about our off-color cinema rants, to help this woman-owned startup climb those podcasting search engine ladders.
May the algorithms ever be on your side, Applauder.
We’ve already received great feedback and can’t wait to add your tips to future recordings. Also, we’ll be moving to a weekly format starting November 20th, just in time for you to dredge the beginning of Thanksgiving weekend.
Mmmmm … dark meat … Batman’s favorite part of the turkey.
Jonathan will be throwing himself into the editing pit this afternoon (OK, we pushed him), to produce Part 2, in preparation for this Tuesday’s release.
We are in full-on squee mode, and can’t wait for you to hear our dive into the Penguin’s journey of self discovery, the coupling of two costumed night creatures, and more than a few rants about the patriarchy.
Just listening and haven’t subscribed? Go to podcast.shockedandapplaud.com on your mobile device to pull it up in your preferred Podcasting app! Then click that subscribe button, because we’ll have Part 3 out before you realize it’s been another two weeks.
We’re closing in on a $15 24-hour ad, which was a “first one is free” promo from Facebook. Trying to get our gambler/marketer addiction going? Nice try, Mark!
You can see in our screenshot that we had a little less than %1 engagement. That’s actually not too shabby for a brand with 0% public recognition. More importantly, we’re seeing real listeners come through iTunes.
We also discovered our three largest demographics, with men displaying roughly 2x more interest. What’s up with that, girl?
Lastly, we limited ourselves to a WA state audience for better context — our Web server is in OR, so visitors would get a better experience than downloading from say, the east coast.
These types of details and updates will be available to Patreon members soon!
