Phenomenal Listening Figures

Postby ori-STUDFARM » Sun Apr 05, 2009 7:14 pm

Podcasts normally take a LONG time to build up listeners. I expected us to reach 20 or 30 within the first couple of weeks.....maybe! I did NOT expect the listening figures we have got.

We were lucky that BobbyLlew (Robert Llewelyn AKA Kryten) twittered about ScutterCast both on night of recording and on night of release. That got us a lot of listeners for episode 1. I suspect that many are not usual podcast listeners and thought we would be lucky to keep a fraction of them, however, we are still consistently getting good figures for such a young podcast.

Figures at time of typing this (according to Podbean)

Episode 1 Enhanced......600
Episode 1 MP3............058
Total.......................658

Episode 2 Enhanced......250
Episode 2 MP3............055
Total.......................305

Episode 3 Enhanced......170
Episode 3 MP3............028
Total.......................198

Yes, we expected a huge drop after episode 1 and it looks like another huge drop after episode 2. How ever, episode 2, this time last week was a similar figure to episode 3 now. And also, episode 3 in terms of sound production is miles better than episode 2. Hopefully stem any potential "Leavers". If we can keep at about 150 listeners, we are doing at least 3 times better than I thought we could achieve in 6 months!! I wanted to point this out to everyone and say to the listeners a huge THANK YOU!
You are why we are doing this!! :D

I haven't had a chance to listen to ep 3 yet, perhaps the figures for all eps will still keep creeping up for a bit as not everyone is on the web every night. ;)

Well done, I must admit I was surprised you got so many listeners - because I wasn't sure how many people would get to hear about it.

I agree, I'm pretty shocked by these figures, as we've mentioned many time before, we learn from each episode, and I feel we improve with each episode. You never know, when we get a few more episodes under our belt, we might even please everyone....

Or maybe stop caring about trying to please EVERYONE all of the time. I've already learned that this is a bit beyond any living being. Some of the contradictory comments have made me chuckle! I loved the so and so part. Next comment, I hated the so and so part!! :lol:

I haven't listened to ep 3 yet either so you've got another one to add on in the next couple of days! :D

Episodes 2 and 3 are both now very close to each other in regards to listening figures. Both are round about 350 which is over half the figure we got for episode 1 after BobbyLlew's Tweet!! Looks like we've managed to keep a lot of those listeners!! Will have to see if we can get another BobbyLlew retweet for the specials episode! :D

Ah...there's a reason for that....BodySwap was re-uploaded, so 100+ people had to download the fixed version ;)
