049 Rob | Walch The Truth About Podcast Download Numbers


Listen Now!

Here’s the Recap:

Rob Walch is the VP at Libsyn and the host of Podcast 411 and Today in iOS. I've been Libsyn's customer for a while now since I've gotten started. I've had multiple interactions with Rob and I think there's this notion sometimes that I've heard people say Rob can be a bit grouchy, I don't know why, maybe it's just people that don't know him. That couldn't be farther from the truth. He's a lot of fun, has really, really quick sense of humor and we laughed a lot on the show. Rob shares valuable podcast insight, statistics, and why your audience isn't falling for traditional marketing tactics. Hope you enjoy this fantastic episode.
