Random Plug of The Week
This week's random plug of the week goes out to the Farm And Ranch Country Podcast from Bill Graff. If you take some time to check out his podcast, please let him know that you heard about them from The Podcast Answer Man.

Getting More Tweets
This week, our social media correspondent, Erik J. Fisher, shares three ways that folks can generate a greater amount of traffic to their content by having their community/audience tweet links to their followers.

The information comes from this amazing article from the Buffer App Blog.

Shameless Vs Shameful Self Promotion
Jason called in to ask for my thoughts on how to handle those who seem to spend most of their time promoting themselves in the community environments that we have worked so hard to create. I share some of my thoughts in this episode.

Affiliate Relationships With Smaller Brands
JD called in to ask my thoughts on how to manage affiliate relationships with smaller brands who do not have official systems for tracking sales that come from his referrals. I provide a few simple ideas and remind him that trust and faith go a long way in business relationships.

The Voice of The Host
Jeremy called in to ask if I had any thoughts on podcasters getting some professional training to make themselves sound a bit more “polished” and “professional.” I am not opposed to going down this avenue to take your podcast to the next level. However, I warn folks to never lose that authenticity in hosting your show. I'd rather be a bit unpolished and relatable than sound like the professionals on the radio.

Podcast Voicemail Setup
Tom called to ask about setting up the greeting with Google Voice for his listener feedback hotline. I gave a few short thoughts here and suggested that he check out my blog post at http://PodcastAnswerMan.com/voicemail.

All Audio On A Single Computer
Jadon wanted to know how he can record all audio sources into a single computer without the use of a mixer and such for when he is out on the road. If you are a mac user, you should check out Audio Hijack Pro. If you are a PC user, you could look into Total Recorder.

Blue Host Affiliate Signup
I want to send out a special word of thanks to the folks behind the following domains that were used to create a new hosting account with BlueHost with my Blue Host affiliate link this past week.
