Wasn't there talk at one point of a giant Excel spreadsheet of doom that was going to list all the files?

Yes, it got made by several of us spending some days trawling the forums, and sent to Hal, who I think has been updating it since then? :)

Sort of. It was intended as an organisational tool for Hal. After putting it together and adding the details gathered by Isis and others I updated for a time, then it was changed so that each group would update their own information. Recently that has not been happening, with only a small number of contributors entering any information, so it's out of date for some groups. Not sure if a list of audio can be easily produced from it and made publicly available as I'm no ace with spreadsheets. At present it's on Google Docs and editable, so I don't think it can be made public without leaving it open to vandalism.

A big list, well organised, might help to attract new listeners (and be of use to existing ones), especially if partnered with promotion and advertising elsewhere. There are some sites listing gaming audio - RPGpodcasts.com comes to mind - but naturally not a great many. It might be a good start if anyone could suggest other places to try promoting RPGMP3.

Good places to promote might be:

RPGGeek
RPG.net
EN World

At least to start!

Drivethrurpg might be a place to market too. WLD sold lots of copies on the strength of the play here, you could set up a sort of cross marketing deal.

{edit} actually they already do have at least 1 podcast so they might be amiable to the idea. http://rpg.drivethru... ... 0_0&free=1

I'd say it's time to pimp out everything with HUGE BANNERS on YOG-SOTHOTH.COM!

Just have a bald dwarf's face, followed by the text, "BALAAZAAAAAAAAAAR!"

Clicking on it takes you straight to RPGMP3

From the sounds of it RPGMP3 gets at least as much traffic as olde Yoggie.

People don't need to register on RPGMP3 to get the audio content which is the primary focus of the site (unless it's patron material), so while YSDC may have more registered users that doesn't mean it has more traffic than RPGMP3.

If people are just accessing through the RSS feeds then putting some additional call outs into the RSS feeds (or episodes) might be worth a look?

If I thought you were serious I'd be quoting rates. :) >

If Hal runs Google Analytics (or similar) on RPGMP3 it shouldn't be too difficult to see where the traffic is coming from and where it's going. That may help identify potentially (more) profitable avenues.

However such issues are usually because of "niche". RPGMP3 offers very specific material for a specific audience (as does YSDC). Maybe there are ways to broaden?

Okay, donated back payments for hosting and starting a commitment of $10 a month for Hal being so nice with hosting and sending it out in a rss feed and such.
