June 2022 Update

Summer is here, and that is a time when many radio stations look at refreshing their programme schedules. That makes it a great time to highlight your syndicated show by listing it with Syndishows!

That is exactly what several show creators have done over the last few weeks, with many immediately being contacted by interested radio stations.

Best Ever Statistics

Consequently, we are pleased to reveal that Syndishows has seen its best site statistics yet over the past month, with the number of unique visits almost doubling to just under 5,000 - with over 20,000 individual show listing views.

Interest in the platform has been growing steadily since the begining of the year, but the recent spike is evidence of that seasonal trend to update programme schedules.

User Registration Issues

We are currently experiencing some issues regarding the creation of user accounts. Specifically, some email addresses being used to create new accounts are not receiving the automated message containing the link to verify their email address due to third party spam protection services blocking delivery. These include Gmail and Microsoft (Outlook/Hotmail/Live) accounts.

We are addressing the problem but, due to the nature of how these systems work, full resolution will take some time. In the meantime, if you are trying to set up a new account and are not receiving the automated verification email, please contact us so that we can complete your account creation from our side.

Apologies for the inconvenience, and we hope to have the matter resolved as soon as third party databases have been updated.

April 2022 Update

April brings us Easter and the first signs of spring. But with economic uncertainty touching many people - energy price increases, inflation, and the rising cost of living - positivity is in short supply.

Syndishows has therefore taken the decision to refresh the Listing Plans we offer, and to introduce a free option for show creators who wish to include their programming in the directory but cannot afford to pay any fees. The Basic 3 plan is zero rated, and is renewable at the end of the subscription period. The two revised paid for plans continue to offer longer term listings, and now offer improved value thanks to the inclusion of Featured In Category - which highlights the listing and elevates its position when viewing the specific category in which the listing is included.

You can see the new listing plans below - click the image to choose a plan now.

March 2022 Update

Hello to all you show creators and radio station programmers!

Another month has flown by, and sadly world events have overshadowed pretty much everything else.Media is now perhaps even more important than ever - both in terms of supplying accurate sources of journalism and in providing diverting entertainment - and radio/podcasting in particular is booming.

Syndishows continues to provide a simple and easy to use hub for radio stations to find syndicated programming of various types, and we have welcomed more new shows to the platform over the last few weeks.

February 2022 Site Statistics

Page views over February increased yet again, with almost 30,000 page views - up 5,000 - whilst the number of unique visitors held steady at around 2,600.We have also monitored an increase in enquiries from radio stations about listed shows that have come through the sites internal messaging system. It is also worth pointing out that radio stations can als…

February 2022 Update

The year is progressing at pace once again, as we find ourselves mid-February already!

January was another busy month for Syndishows, with a massive increase in site traffic - reflected in both unique visitors numbers and individual page views.

January 2022 Site Statistics

New shows continue to be added to the directory, and Syndishows has been advertised across industry specific social media pages and groups, online at radiotoday.co.uk and through direct mail out to radio stations.

As always, it is worth emphasising that a succesful listing requires the right amount and type of content. Simply having your show listed is not a guarantee that radio stations will be interested. But if your show listing contains plenty of information, and preferably images and demo availability details, then you stand a very good chance of being contacted.

As always, a free trial is available for show creators who are unsure whether the pla…

November Site Statistics

Syndishows continues to attract good visitor numbers from interested radio stations, with another healthy tally for November.

November Visits & Page Views

A number of additional subscribers have reported that stations have approached them and in many cases begun broadcasting their shows. With the end of year approaching, many more stations will be looking at refreshing their schedules for the start of 2022 - so it would be a good time to add your show to the directory if it is not yet present.

We have also added a few more categories in order for shows from more genres to appear on the site.

October Site Statistics

Syndishows site statistics for October continue to be encouraging, with almost 2,000 unique visitors to the platform and nearly 20,000 page views.

October Vists & Page Views

Several show listings have reported new stations picking up their show, and whilst it obviously isnt possible to guarantee success for everyone, there seems to be a high proportion of show listings receiving at least some contact from stations as a result of their listing.

Radio Stations too are firmly behind the directory, with many commenting on how much easier it is to find suitable shows for their schedules by looking in one place rather than spending much longer searching in multiple locations. Being able to filter by category is also much appreciated, allowing stations to find genre-specific syndicated programming.

We will continue to monitor traffic and report back on a regular basis.

Listing Plans & Free Trials

This weeks site update has modifed our available listing plans and changed the mechanism for allowing free trial listings.

A new Budget Listing has now been added, allowing show creators to list their show for two months. This is a renewable plan, however the six and twelve month plans remain better value for longer term listing of your show.

A Free Trial listing is still available, but is now delivered using a coupon code that can be provided on request. The coupon code can be entered agains the Budget Listing plan to offset the total cost, resulting in no charge for two months. The free trial is only available once per listing, and the code is not reusable.

To request your coupon code in order to take advantage of a free trial, please contact us.

Getting The Most From Your Listing

A common question is "How can I get more radio stations viewing my listing?"

There are a number of things you can do to maximise the effectiveness of your listing. Indeed, if you look at the listings on Syndishows that are getting the most views, these tend to be shows that have followed this advice.

Categories

Firstly, ensure that your show is listed in the category that best suits it. One of the advantages of Syndishows is that it allows radio stations to search by category for the type of show they are looking for, so if your show is not listed in the right category it may get misssed altogether.

Secondly, more detail is better than less! Listings with just a couple of lines for a description are less likely to grab the attention of radio stations than listings with lots of information. Dont just tell stations what your show is, tell them about what features you have, or examples of guests, how long you have been producing your show for,…

Page Views

We have now added a page view counter to each show listing in order for you to track the interest your show is achieving. You can find this counter on the right hand side of your listing, below the owners profle information.

Note that because page tracking was not active from the launch of the platform, the actual total number of views for each page from the original date of listing is likely to be higher.A reminder that if your listing is not getting the same number of views as other shows then there are a number of things that you can do to improve your visibility. Some of these are listed on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
