    Hi,

    I'm looking into creating a monthly mix show for my http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/electronic-music-blog-my-journey-to-100-000-monthly-visitors.861562/.
    A local House Dj will supply us with an hour-long mix every month and we will build the marketing around it. My initial idea is to distribute this primary via Soundcloud with a fan gate (follow and repost to download) besides there will be a youtube video for each mix and a relating blog post.

    However I think we don't have to stop there. I know that podcasts on iTunes used to be a big thing, personally I don't use them any more. Is it still worth the effort creating a podcast for iTunes? Is there a pendant to that on Apple Music e.g. something Apple Music Curator related?

    Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on that.
    Best, Anthony

    do people still bother with podcasts? I don't know anyone who can be bothered. I would just add the mixes to Youtube like best music channel, they have a huge following ( including me )

    Podcasts still work. Now, the thing is you have to build a community first around your niche otherwise no one will pay attention to the podcast. Another way of promoting it is to have segments of it uploaded to your instagram account and try to create some buzz so that guys can go stream it. Hope this helps.
