I recently read an interesting article about the current state of the podcast community. It's a great article with some eye-opening facts & figures.
One particular statement caught my eye :"Do podcasters realize the Zune has been responsible for 17% overall increase in unique podcast listeners over the past two years? I question why podcasters would ignore a huge segment of potential listeners by not carrying a Zune subscribe icon on their website".
I am definitely one of those folks who has been guilty of not trying to cater for Zune users with a subscribe button on my podcast site.
So, I did a bit of research to find out how I could create a subscribe link or button on my site.
It actually turned out to be a bit trickier than I expected.
So, I thought this might be a good subject to roll up my sleeves for, and try to create a tool to share with other (running) podcasters, that would generate Zune subscription links & buttons.
That's all there is to it. You will get a choice of a text link, a clickable icon, or a text link with an icon. You can copy the HTML code out of the boxes provided, and paste them on to your podcast web site.
Well, I hope the Zunifier helps you gain a few Zune listeners who might have otherwise not been able to give your podcast a listen. Have fun.
